Is Jesus Christ Just A Man? Or Is He God?

 April 8

"And without controversy
great is the mystery of godliness:

justified in the Spirit, seen by angels,
preached among the Gentiles,
believed on in the world,
received up in glory."
1 Timothy 3:15-16

"The mystery of godliness..."

Some question the deity of Christ. Was he just a man? Or was he God in the flesh?

The Scriptures tell us to prove all doctrine by its being repeated in several places:

"By the mouth of two or three witnesses
every word shall be established."

2 Corinthians 13:1

So let's do that right now.

Here's a second witness to the deity of Christ:

A CHILD is born who is EVERLASTING,
who is the mighty GOD:

"For unto us a CHILD is born,

unto us a Son is given;
and the government will be upon his shoulder.
And his name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, MIGHTY GOD,
EVERLASTING Father, Prince of Peace."
Isaiah 9:6

This child, a human being, is also God, the Mighty GOD, the EVERLASTING, or ETERNAL, Father.

A third witness to the deity of Christ:

Thomas was one of the apostles who had walked with Jesus throughout his ministry on earth. After Christ was raised from the dead, Thomas couldn't believe it - until Jesus came to him and showed him the nail prints in his hands. 
Thomas was shocked and humbled, and he answered and said to him,

“My Lord and my GOD!”
John 20:28

Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, truly God and truly man. He is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end, the very God of glory proclaimed throughout the Word of God from the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation.
