Jesus was a man who claimed to be God
He lived on earth over 2000 yrs ago
Jesus said He could satisfy a person’s spiritual need
Then Jesus declared,
“I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry,
and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
John 6:35 (NIV)
Jesus said He could forgive a person’s sins;
When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic,
“Son, your sins are forgiven.”
Jesus said He was the way people could find God;
“I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 (NIV)
Jesus’ claim to be God was backed up by living an amazing life which included things such as;
Loving His enemies
Dying and coming back to life three days later (He was seen by over 500 people over a six week period)
People that knew Him recognised Him as God;
Thomas said to him,
“My Lord and my God!”
Then Jesus told him,
“Because you have seen me, you have believed;
blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
John 20:28-29 (NIV)
