Jesus is the Son of God the Father who created the earth, has the same authority as God the Father, was with God and is God, since the beginning, and whose spirit lives in the hearts and minds of those who want to have everlasting life with God. Jesus is the only way to get to God and yet He is a part of God. God has one body but many parts just like you have one body with many parts that allow it to function properly. You have eyes to see, a nose to smell, a heart that pumps blood to your veins, lungs that pump air into you. Your eyes, nose, heart, lungs etc. are not separate from your body, they are part of your body just like Jesus the Son of God is part of God the Father and His Holy Ghost (Spirit) is part of God which Jesus left as a comforter to His disciples and followers to live inside of us and teach us all things. Is Jesus therefore God? Yes, Jesus is God. John the Baptist clearly tells us that Jesus was here since the beginning of time, created the earth and everything in it, and then became flesh full of grace and truth, so that He could be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.
The Word was with God, was God, since the beginning of time & the Word was made flesh in Jesus Christ Nothing was created without the Word. The Word was Life and that life was the "light of men" John 1:1In the beginning was the Word, andthe Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. John 1:3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. John 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. John 1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. John 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. The Word, is Jesus, was with God, is God and has been here since the beginning of creation. The Word is life and the light of men. Jesus is the image of the invisible God Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: Colossians 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; The disciples called Jesus Master and Lord So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? John 13: 12 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well, for so I am.John13:13 You can do nothing without Jesus, Jesus is the only way to God the Father John 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. John 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. John 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. Jesus said that the He was not greater than God Verily, verily, I say unto you. The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. John 13:16 (Read in Context) John tells us: Jesus was originally not of blood or flesh but of God which we know is Spirit as we read in John 4:24 The Word was made into flesh The Word lived among us The Word was from God the Father The Word was full of grace & truth Jesus was the Word that was here before creation The Word that was here in the beginning of time Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.John 1:13 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory was of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. John 1:15 God is a Spirit Jesus is the promised prophesied Messiah Jesus is not greater than God God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.John 4:24 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come he will tell us all things. John 4:25 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he, John 4:26 (Read in Context) God is in Jesus and Jesus is in God and when you are saved Jesus Christ's spirit is in you. The Bible tells us that Jesus is the Son of God, part of the Godhead Trinity of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. All three are separate beings but one in Spirit. It is hard for man to understand the workings of God but understand this Jesus is the Word. Jesus is one with God. God the Father is in Jesus just as Jesus is in God the Father. God the Father dwells in Jesus and Jesus dwells in God the Father John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. God the Father sent Jesus and gave Him the power to give eternal life John 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: John 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. John 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
NOTES: Jesus gave confirmation to Peter's statement saying Jesus is the Messiah and Son of God. Read Matthew 16:15-17 Mark 8:29-30,Luke 9:20-21 While being questioned by the high priests Jesus said that he is the Messiah and Son of God. Read Mark 14:61-62. Matthew 26:63-64, Luke 22:70. The Jews understanding of what Jesus said was that Jesus was implying that He is God. Jesus called God his Father, Read John 5:17-18. Jesus told the Jews, "I and the Father are one." Read John 10:24-38 Jesus told the disciples, "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am." Read John 13:13 Jesus forgave sins, which only God had the authority to do. Read Mark 2:5-11, Luke 5:20-24 Jesus said that he had seen Abraham and that he is eternal: "'I tell you the truth,' Jesus answered, 'before Abraham was born, I am!'" Read John 8:57-58. Jesus said that he had seen God, which no one else could do Read John 6:46
And Jesus said, "I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven." Mark 14:62
