The Deity of Christ (Part 9)

The Deity of Christ (Part 9)   “Who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to…

The Deity of Christ (Part8)

The Deity of Christ (Part8)   In this article I want to revisit the first chapter of John's Gospel again. I feel it is necessary to go back and touch again on verse three. (Jn.1:3) As we've already noted this verse plainly states that all things were made through Jesus, and that without him nothing came into being! A few…

The Deity Of Christ (Part 7)

The Deity Of Christ (Part 7) In article six you were introduced to what is known as the Targum a most sequestered body of literature of the first centuries either side of the birth date of Christ! How fitting that they would be common knowledge leading up to, during, and right after the time of Jesus and his incarnation, but…

The Deity Of Christ (Part 6)

The Deity Of Christ (Part 6) As promised I said we would deal with the views of Israel in reference to God. A very well kept secret within the Jewish faith is the fact that Israel actually did believe in a plurality in regards to the Godhead. The use of plural pronouns in reference to God are frequently used throughout…

The Deity Of Christ (Part 5)

The Deity Of Christ (Part 5) In our last article we left off while observing the text of John 20:28 and the fact that the Apostle Thomas made a most profound enunciation that Jesus was both Lord and God! This truth found in the declaration made by the Apostle Thomas is hard for many people swallow. Some just flat out…

The Deity of Christ (Part 4)

The Deity of Christ (Part 4)     If you remember, we ended our last article with Jn. 18:3-6 where we read that Judas Iscariot after having received soldiers led them out to where Jesus was in order to betray Him. We noted in verses five and six that the power in the name of God (“I Am” Ἐγώ εἰμι…

The Deity of Christ (Part 3)

The Deity of Christ (Part 3)   At the end of our last article we looked at Matt.26:63 – 66. I noted that in verse 63 the high priest asked Jesus to plainly state if he was the Christ; a title by which He also synonymously is known as the Son of God! And as if that were not enough,…

The Deity of Christ (Part 2)

The Deity of Christ (Part 2)   In the last article we reviewed a couple of Scriptures that undeniably prove that Jesus claimed to be God. We cited Jn.8:24 along with Jn.8:58 and His usage of the divine name of God as being “I AM” given to Moses at the burning Bush in Ex.3:14. We also took the time to…

The Deity of Christ (Part 1)

The Deity of Christ (Part 1)   The study of eschatology and the eschatological view of Preterism is a very important doctrinal study that is quickly gaining interest within Christian circles today. Although it is still looked at for the most part with a jaundice eye, it has finally caught the tentative eye of the futurist camp of the Christian…
