Many editions of requirements in evangelism exist without any real acknowledgment of what Scripture teaches concerning the person and work of Jesus Christ. We’ve established over the last few months that the bible is clear that Jesus is God. Now, we conclude this series explaining why Jesus as God is a necessary element of a basic evangelistic proclamation.
Scripture shows that GOD ALONE is worthy of worship. Exodus 20:5 even states that God will bring wrath on anyone who worships any other “god”. So, Scripture reveals that Jesus is worshipped and thus, as we’ll see, Jesus is God.
God created all things and nothing that has been created exists apart from Him. So, when Scripture teaches that Jesus created all things and is above ALL creation, then He cannot be a created being, He must be God.
Jesus is God. Plain and simple. This is part five in an eight-part series on the divine nature of Jesus Christ and today we are going to discuss the witness of God the Father concerning His Son’s deity.
Jesus NEVER says, “I am God” because that would not be a claim to deity. However, He clearly claims to be God in stronger and more solid ways. This episode quickly looks at these claims. Next week we will look at the witness of God the Father in Scripture concerning the deity of Jesus, God the Son. This is part 4 of an 8 part series.
Continuing with Part 3 of our 8 part series on the Divine Nature of Jesus we continue to look at various texts that clearly show Jesus as God in the New Testament. Next week we will show where Jesus claimed to be God personally.
Continuing in our eight part series on the divinity of Jesus Christ, today we are going to look at some more claims of Christ as God in the writings of the Apostles.
Jesus is God. This is clearly taught in Scripture and over these next few episodes, Edward and James will look at the witness of scripture, the apostles, the Son & the Father. This episode looks specifically at the passages that show Jesus’ divinity in the Gospel of John.
While many people claim to be Christian and to understand the truth of the gospel of grace, few people can articulate the basics of the gospel. In this episode, Edward and James articulate the essentials of the gospel as revealed in Scripture.
Questions from listeners on this broadcast:
Is there a difference between the word “Rhema” and “Logos” in meaning and interpretation? Does this difference teach us that there is a “written word” and an “inner voice” of God?
Does Regeneration precede faith? If so, how do you know this according to scripture?
