The DEITY of Christ

Introduction

The deity of Christ is the concept that Jesus is GOD; they are One. This is a vitally important concept for many different reasons. Among the most relevant are the trustworthiness of Christ’s word for He claimed to be God. Additionally, to be the perfect sacrifice, Christ could not sin or be capable of sin, and that would make Him God. Below are several different scriptural avenues by which Christ is proven to be God.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
