Messiah Yeshua is the Son of Man. In harmony with Genesis 3:15, he is fully human, the "seed of a woman" and yet fully Divine, in harmony with Isaiah 9 and other scriptures. John begins his wonderful book with an unequivocal claim that should settle the question of Jesus' divinity once and for all:
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and Elohim was the Word.
More Apostolic confirmations:
2. He was in the beginning with Elohim.
3. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
4. In Him was life, and the life was the light of humanity.
5. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
I Tim 3:16
More scriptural confirmations:
13. The Pharisees therefore said to [Yeshua], "You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness is not true."
14. Jesus answered and said to them, "Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from and where I am going.
15. You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one.
16. And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me.
17. It is also written in your law that the testimony of two people is true.
18. I am One who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me."
19. Then they said to Him, "Where is Your Parent?" Jesus answered, "You know neither Me nor My Father. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also."
20. These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one laid hands on Him, for His hour had not yet come.
I John 5:
6. This is the one who came by water and blood -- Yeshua Messiah; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
7. For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.
8. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.
9. If we receive the witness of people, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness which God has testified of the Son.
10. One who believes in the Son of God has the witness in him/herself; one who does not believe God has made a liar, because that one has not believed the testimony that God has given of the Son.
11. And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in the Son.
12. One who has the Son has life; one who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
More scriptural evidence:
John the Baptizer: John1:34
Even the demons confirm Jesus' divinity!
The works of Christ John 5:36
Statements of God: John 5:37
The testimony of the Hebrew Scriptures: John 5:39
Jesus Himself: John 8:14
The Holy Spirit: John 15:26
The Believers throughout the past 2000 years: John 15:27
Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords:
19. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe--and tremble!
33. And the whole city was gathered together at the door.
34. Then Yeshua healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.
29. And suddenly they cried out, saying, "What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?"
I Tim 6:
13. I urge you in the sight of Elohim who gives life to all things, and before Messiah Yeshua who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate,
14. that you keep this commandment (or mitzvah) without spot, blameless until our Adonay Yehsua Messiah's (our Lord Jesus Christ's) appearing,
15. which He will manifest in His own time (or seasons), He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the Sovereign of reigners and Adonay of adoniym,
16. who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
John 17:1-2: Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: "Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You.
Now, if Yeshua is not fully God then he is in a very bad position! Scripture clearly says again and again:
"I am YHVH, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images -- Isaiah 42:7-9:
And yet Jesus is even worshipped:
27. Then He said to Thomas, "Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing."
28. And Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Adonay and my Elohim (My Lord and my God)!"
29. Yeshua said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
Our Savior is offered praise and glory which is due only to God. He even demanded that he is to be lifted up so that all peoples will come to him. Who but God could make such claims!:
31. Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.
32. And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself."
33. This He said, signifying by what death He would die.
There is practically no end to such verses. Everything that Jesus said and did, everything that was said about him, testifies of his Godhead and glory! In this verse he clearly reveals that as Messiah he will "crush Satan" and gain dominion over the earth, as prophesied at Genesis 3:15. He would allow himself to be lifted up from the earth via his crucifiction, thereby allowing Satan and the powers of the Rebellion to "bruise his heel" as it were. The result of this would be the crushing of Satan and restoration of all things (I Cor. 15:20-28).
38 Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
39. So when the centurion, who stood opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this and breathed His last, he said, "Truly this was the Son of God!"
Tis was the Son of God makes it clear that the rest of us are not. The reationship was unique and hte word "Son" implies more than its enlish equivilency.
