Wisdom For Each Day – August 19, 2014

Jesus Himself claimed that He was divine.  “I and the Father are one,” he stated (John 10:30).  His miracles backed up His claim, as did His assertion that He could forgive sins – something only God can do (see Luke 5:20-25).

In addition, repeatedly the Gospel writers pointed out the way He fulfilled the Old Testament’s prophecies concerning the Messiah, who was to be called “Immanuel – which means, ‘God with us'” (Matthew 1:23).  But Jesus’ divinity was demonstrated most of all by His resurrection from the dead and His ascension into Heaven – events that were witnessed by hundreds.

The gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son…who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 1:2-4
