Monday – Gospels
Reading – John 8
“Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I Am!””
John 8:58 NLT
Let this put aside any question as to whether or not Jesus claimed to be God.
The people he was speaking to understood. They tried to stone Him.
So that brings up the old question – Was Jesus a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord?
He cannot be more than one. Nor can He be just a good teacher. If He claims to be God, He is one of the three.
I am tempted to make this a long apologetic essay on how Jesus is Lord.
Instead, I will just sum up that the prophecies before His birth, the teachings and miracles during His time on Earth, and the very presence of the Church and the Holy Spirit since the Resurrection all come together as overwhelming evidence of the divinity of Jesus.
What do you think?
What is the most convincing evidence to you of Jesus as God?
If you are not convinced of Jesus’ divinity, what keeps you from believing that?
No judgement here, just honest polite discussion.
