1. Jesus claims to be the Messiah & proves it through prophecy

Isa 9:6 tells us that the messiah would be God in flesh and would be known as the Son of God

One example of Biblical prophecy concerning the messiah that Jesus fulfilled:

The messiah would also be born of a virgin—-Isa 7:14 and fulfilled in Matt 1:21-23

Jesus claimed to be the Messiah & proved it through prophecy (Luke 4:17-20 & Matt 11:2-6)

Jesus’s Disciples teach us that Jesus was the messiah (Acts 2:22-41, Matt 1:1, John 20:30-31)

2. Jesus claimed to be God

John 8:57-59 —- YHWH-The LORD

John 10:30-33 —- Son of God (same nature)

John 5:18 —- Calling God: Father (same nature…equality with God)

3. Jesus spoke as God and not a prophet

Example: The Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5-7) & Matt 7:28-29

4. Jesus accepted worship as only God stated He should receive

Ex 20:3  --- “You shall have no other gods before me.”

Jesus accepted & approved the worship of people (Matt 14:33, John 20:28, & Matt 16:16-17)

5. Jesus forgives sin and heals a man to prove He is God —- Mark 2:1-10 

Other examples when He forgave sin: The adulterous woman, woman anointing His feet, man on the cross ,etc

1 Tim 1:15 --- The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.

6. Jesus conquered sin and death and proved it in the resurrection (1 Cor 15)

7. Jesus’ disciples accepted His claim to be God

Example:Most of Jesus’ disciples got martyred because they wouldn’t recant this truth.

They also preached that Jesus was God and could only do things that God can do.

Examples: Col 1:16, 2 Pet 3:18, 1 Cor 4:5, 2 Cor 5:10, Acts 10:36
