TRUTH FOR TODAY

Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

WHO IS JESUS? [2]

The New Testament teaches very plainly that Jesus is divine, deity, a member of the godhead. John 1:1-2 says, "In the beginning was the Word and the word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God." The Word is a reference to Jesus. He was with God (literally face to face with God and was God). The Greek text literally says, "and God was the Word." This means that the essence and quality of the Word was God (deity, divinity). Jesus was not and is not inferior to God the Father in His essence. (more next week)
