IS JESUS GOD
The Bible makes the direct claim that
Jesus is the Son of God.
1 Many others, including the disciples,
2 A Roman Centurion,
5, John the Baptist,
7 Saul (Paul),
8 Ethiopian Eunich
9 make the same claim. Others said that Jesus Himself made the claim to be the Son of God.
10 The gospel accounts also indicate that Jesus Himself made the statement or acknowledged that He was the Son of God many times.
11 The title Son of God, does not denote second class status. No other prophet ever called himself the Son of God. The Jewish leaders of the time knew exactly what this title implied - that Jesus was claiming to be God Himself: For this cause therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God. (John 5:18)
Claiming to be the Son of God also conferred the title of Messiah or the anointed One. Psalm 2 talks about the Messiah (mashiach), whom it says is God's Son.12 This great messianic Psalm warns the reader to do homage to the Son and take refuge in Him,13 since He will rule the nations and judge the earth.14 The Sibylline Oracles make it clear that the Son of God is God Himself:
