From “Doctrine” by Mark Driscoll:
God the Father said He was God
Hebrews 1:8 8But about the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever,*and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.
62*And the high priest stood up and said, "Have you no answer to make? What is it that these men testify against you?"63But Jesus was silent. And the high priest said to him, "I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God."64Jesus said to him, “You have said so. But I tell you, hereafter you will see the Son of man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.”
John 8:58-59 Jesus uses the term Before Abraham was, “I Am”, He is using the term God used to describe himself with Moses
John Chapter 10: 30-33
30*I and the Father are one."31The Jews took up stones again to stone him.*32Jesus answered them, "I have shown you many good works from the Father; **for which of these do you stone me?"33The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we stone you but for blasphemy; because you, being a man, make yourself God.” **
The Bible Clearly says Jesus is God
Matthew 1:23 Matthew calls Jesus Emmanuel which means God with Us.
John 20:28 Thomas says “My Lord and my God”.
Titus 2:13 "Our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.
Titus 3:4 calls Jesus “God our Savior”
1John5:20 says of Jesus “this is the true God”*
This is the problem with calling Jesus solely a prophet (truth teller). God calls him God, He calls himself God and those who knew him called him God. As C.S. Lewis stated, he is either a Liar, Lunatic or the Lord, but can’t be “just a good man or prophet”.
