Is Jesus God? Part 9

This is the final post in the series on the Deity of Christ. For those that are interested I hope to post the entire paper on line with footnotes, bibliographic information, and appropriate Greek fonts.

Conclusion
The purpose of this paper has been to provide a biblical foundation regarding the deity of Christ by examining some of the key tradition bearers in the early church. As we have examined the texts from each author we can see that the New Testament writers are in unanimous agreement concerning the deity of Christ. The Christology that Paul, Peter, James, the author of Hebrews, and John have taught is one that “explicitly and unequivocally asserts the deity of Christ.”[49] Jesus Christ is no mere man. He is fully God.[50] We must not make him in our own image but we must return and again and again to the biblical portrait of Christ.
