“Is Jesus God? And is He eternal?”
The Bible never records Jesus saying the precise words, “I am God.” That does not mean, however, that He is not God.
In Hebrews 1:8, the Father declares of Jesus, “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.” The Father is clearly referring to Jesus as God.
This does not mean that Jesus is the same person as the Father, this simply proves that Jesus is also divine.
Romans 9:5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
Once again, the Bible makes it clear that Jesus is God.
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 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.
Jesus was God in the flesh.
Joh 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
Is Jesus eternal? Joh 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
The name of God, given to Moses at the burning bush to express the idea of the eternal presence, had been claimed as His own by Jesus. He had announced Himself to be the self-existent One. In Isaiah 9:6 He is also referred to as everlasting.
So is Jesus God, and is He eternal? Yes, the Bible is abundantly clear that Jesus is divine and eternal. Amen.
