Today many scholars recognize that Jesus Christ is a real character in history, but they do not see Him as the Son of God or Creator of the heavens and the earth, rather, they see Him as a simple jewish prophet. They believe that Jesus came and existed for the first time and that He died but was not resurrected.
Something we must understand is that Jesus is more important or more transcendental than everything described above. John gives us a lot of clarity of who Jesus really is, he begins his first chapter in the following way:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1: 1-5
These 5 verses with which John begins exalt Jesus as King and Lord of all creation. Here John is going to the beginning of creation and tells us that in that principle spoken of in Genesis chapter 1 the verb existed. The word verb comes from the Greek Logos which means Word. That is, in the beginning was Jesus Christ, which is equivalent to the existence of Jesus Christ in the beginning, and He was with God and not only that He was with God but that He was God.
Without a doubt, Jesus Christ was also there creating the world and everything that inhabits it. He is not a historical character or a prophet or a miracle worker. He is not only that, He is the most important character that has trodden the earth, which already existed from eternity.
The world had never known God, but could know him because the verb (Jesus Christ) became flesh, that is, He became a man and lived among us.
The Bible itself gives us a demonstration that He is God. At that time, in which Jesus lived on this earth, the disciples were not clear about who Jesus Christ really was. And for this we find a certain biblical verses that says:
8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
You realize? Philip wanted to see the Father (God), since no man ever saw God, so John himself says in verse 18: “No one has ever seen God, the only begotten God, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known. ” But Jesus says to Philip: He who has seen me has seen the Father. It is incredible, but of that being that the same Bible tells us that the skies of heaven can not contain Him, walked among men, became man, endured the reproach, died and rose again on the third day with great power and glory. Praise God!
6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.
1 Corinthians 8:6
Through Jesus Christ are all things, through Him we are and live, and move. He is more than a simple character, He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth.
We hope that in some way this article has let you see the great power that is found in our beloved and Lord Jesus Christ....
So true Amen and Amen
My name is cynthia Adumoye am from nigeria, I live in France I want to know more about God…
I can’t figure this one out and still don’t, are they two different beings or spirits. When Jesus got baptized, God spoke from heaven so who spoke? And other instances Jesus talks about God his father in heavens. This is my hump, I honestly don’t get it… Help me understand it…
Jesus Christ is the Lord
In the beginning the Verb, God’s word, Jesus, was with the Father and the Holy Spirit. The triune God created all things which exist. Jesus was at the creation, and He has the power and the Will to do all things. Jesus and his Father are one: Jesus is in the Father, who is the Lord.
Jesus is the Lord and has the Father’s authority. The Father works through Jesus Christ because He lives in Him.
“Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.”
( John 14:10)
Jesus is the Lord of Heaven and Earth because he has created everything with the Father. He came to his people but none of the princes of this world knew who He was, because they crucified Him. They didn’t know that Jesus Christ is the Lord. That is what the apostle Paul tells to the Church in Corinth, referring to Him:
“Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”
(1 Corinthians 2:8)
Jesus Christ was crucified like a criminal, being the Lord of glory
