Sunday, February 3, 2002

MAT 22:42 "What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?"

I am He - JOH 8:18; DEU 32:39; ISA 41:4; 43:10; 43:13; 48:12; JER 29:23; JOH 8:18; 8:24; 8:28; 13:19; 18:6; 18:8; REV 2:23.

The doctrine of the Deity of Jesus Christ.

Point 1. Definition. Jesus Christ is God and the only Person of the Trinity to ever be seen, JOH 1:18; JOH 6:46;1TI 6:16; 1JO 4:12.

GEN 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

ROM 10:9 - if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved;

1JO 2:22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.

1JO 2:23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.

Point 2. The Syllogism of Deity.

A syllogism is a logical formula consisting of two premises and a conclusion, a major and minor premise plus a conclusion, derived from deductive reasoning.

1PE 1:2 according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, that you may obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood: May grace and peace be yours in fullest measure.

2CO 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.

MAT 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

Point 3. The Claims of the Lord Jesus Christ.

TLJC claimed to share Gods nature and taught that no one has lived a sinless life, except for Him, JOH 8:28-29, 36-47. He claimed to be the ONLY way to God, not one of several ways, but the one and only way, JOH 14:6.

He claimed to have the same glory that God the Father had in Heaven before the foundation of the world, JOH 17:5. He claimed that He pre-existed the people He spoke with, JOH 8:54-59.

He claimed to be able to forgive sins, and God is the only one who can do that, LUK 5:20-21.

Jesus Christ claimed to be equal with God, JOH 5:18.

He claimed to be a Heavenly king, LUK 22:69.

He claimed to be the King of the Jews, LUK 23:3.

He claimed to be the Son of God and the King of Israel, JOH 1:49.

He claimed to be able to give eternal life, JOH 6:40.

He claimed he would die and come back to life, JOH 10:17.

He claimed He would return again to judge the world, MAT 25:31-34.

Point 4. Scriptural Documentation.

MIC 5:2 Jesus Christ is eternal God during the incarnation.

The ten I ams of the Gospel of John - ten represents the number of completion of the divine order, and TLJC was completely identifying Himself as the great I am.

PHI 2:10 "at the name of Jesus every knee should bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord."
