As we continue our Is Jesus Really… series we are going to tackle the question Is Jesus Really…. God? This can be a major question for many believers of any age. Even the early Church struggled with the idea that Jesus was both 100% God and 100% man. Kingdom mathematics can sometimes throw us, but as we investigate this quandary we must conclude that yes, Jesus is completely God and yes He is completely man. Again, just like our lesson required last week, we must exercise our faith to really grasp what this requires us to believe as Christ followers.
- Jesus was born of a woman. (Matthew 2:1)
- Jesus was tempted and had to make right choices. (Luke 4:2)
- People touched him and felt him.
- He bleed.
- He died.
Is Jesus God? YES!
- Jesus was in the beginning, He was with God, He is God and everything was created by Him. (John 1:1)
- He healed the sick, cast out demons, raised the dead and did many other miracles like walking on water and feeding thousands with little food.
- He rose himself from the dead. (John 10:17-18)
- Many people saw Him ascend into heaven. (Mark 16:19)
- He is still alive over 2000 years later.
