Is Jesus God In The Flesh

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1 ESV) The Bible says that Jesus is God in the flesh. The following verses prove that Jesus is truly “God with us.”

Is Jesus God In The Flesh

Jesus Christ is God who became man.

Jesus Christ is God who became man. While this may seem obvious, it’s not always easy to understand exactly what this means. That’s because when we think of Jesus Christ, we often picture one thing: a perfect human being without flaws or sin. But in reality, Jesus was less than perfect—he was sinful! He wasn’t just a good person; he was our Savior who died on the cross to pay for our sins so that we could be saved if we believe in him.

Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully man at the same time. Some people say that he was two separate beings—one part God and one part man—but others say that he was fully both at once (a mixture).

Jesus claimed to be God.

When you look at the gospels, you find that Jesus claimed to be God. He said things like “before Abraham was, I am” (John 8:58) and “At the resurrection of the dead, people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven” (Matt 22:30). But also, he also called himself the Son of Man, which means that he was a human being. So then how can this be? Let’s take a look at some other areas where Jesus made claims about himself that don’t seem to make sense when taken out of context.

Let’s start with his messianic claims. Jesus came from Nazareth but he said things like “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30), so he wasn’t claiming to be God here either right? Well hold on just a minute because there’s something else we need to consider here – what did it mean for someone in first century Palestine who wanted everyone around them to think highly enough of them so as not only receive their respect but also possibly even listen closely enough when being spoken too by said person hoping that something might come out of their mouth worth hearing? What if this person had been born outside Nazareth (which isn’t necessarily true but let’s pretend for now) and grew up hearing about how important it was for one’s reputation among one group within society at large such as their family members or friends or neighbors etcetera…

Jesus accepted worship as God.

Jesus accepted worship as God.

Jesus accepted worship from others:

  • His disciples
  • Angels (Luke 2:13)
  • Demons (Matt 8:29-32; Mark 1:23-26)

Jesus also accepted worship from His mother Mary and the Father (John 20:17).

Jesus’s miracles prove He is God.

The miracles Jesus performed were signs that He was God in the flesh.

Jesus healed the sick, cast out demons, and raised the dead.

His miracles demonstrated His authority over sickness and death, as well as Satan himself.

Jesus is the Christ (the Anointed One).

He is called the Son of God.

He is also called “the Son of Man” (or simply, “Man”).

He was also born from David as his son, and Mary as his mother (Matthew 1:1-17). And yet Jesus said that He was not just one of these things; He claimed to be all of them at once: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6).

Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation.

Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation.

You cannot be saved by any other religion, nor can you be saved without knowing Jesus. This is because he is the only one who can forgive sin and save you from hell.

Conclusion

In His humanity, Jesus experienced all of the things that we would experience as human beings. The Bible teaches us that “He Himself has said, ‘I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.’ So we confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?’ (Hebrews 13:5-6). The Bible also teaches us that Jesus was a perfect sacrifice for our sins and one day He is going to return to judge this world (2 Timothy 4:1). There is no other name under heaven by which a person can be saved except through Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12).
