When Jesus walked the earth He did proclaim that He was God. The Bible even shows that Jesus Christ is God. The Jews even tried to stone Jesus for His proclamation of being God. The Jews knew that Jesus was claiming deity. The reader should be drawn to the fact that Jesus did not deny this claim stating that “I and the Father are One” (John 10:30). Jesus was declaring the He and the Father God were one in nature. Jesus also Said in John 8:58:” I tell you the truth, before Abraham was, I am”. When Jesus made this claim the Jews response was to begin to throw stones at Jesus even for the purpose of killing Him for blasphemy according to the Mosaic Law.
John also confirms the fact of Jesus’ deity. John documents that the Word was God and that the Word became flesh. (John 1:1, 14). These words are clear that Jesus Christ came to this earth as God in the flesh. Acts 20:28: also shows that Jesus is God saying: “Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own Blood. We already know whose Blood was shed for the purpose of the Church. Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. Jesus is not just the son of God. Jesus Christ is God.
We see in the Bible also that even doubting Thomas made the declaration the Jesus Christ was “My Lord and my God” (John 20:28). Notice when you read these versus that Jesus did not correct Thomas. Titus tells us to stand and watch for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Father speaks of Jesus as being “O God” in Hebrews 1:8: Your throne O God will last forever and righteousness will be the scepter of your Kingdom.
The angel told the apostle John to worship God in Revelation 19:10. Jesus receives worship in the Gospels see: Matt 2:11, 14:33, 28:9, 17, Luke 24:52 and John 9:38). Jesus did not rebuke anyone for worshiping Him. The point being here is that if Jesus was not God He would not have received the worship but would have rebuked the people as the angels in the Bible did when men worshipped them.
The reader must know that if Jesus was not God then He cold not have died for our sins because His death would not have been sufficient to pay the penalty for the sins of the world 1 John 2:2. Another human being could not have paid the price for the sins of humanity. Only God could qualify as the spotless Lamb of God.
