The deity of Christ is often questioned by non Christians. So, I thought I would share some useful verses from our God-inspired Bible (2 Tim 3:16, 2 Pet 1:20-21) in case this topic comes up in conversation for anyone

Jesus says of Himself in John 10:30 (easy to remember this verse – God is 1, God is 3, John 10:30)

‘I and my Father are one’

John 10:30

God the Father says to our Lord Jesus Christ in Hebrews 1:8

‘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’

Hebrews 1:8

Paul, the greatest evangelist in history and the author of much of the New Testament, wrote in 1 Tim 3:16

‘And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory’

1 Tim 3:16

In the finest and grandest opening to any book I’ve read, John 1 says

‘1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 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”
