Where In The Bible Does Jesus Says He Is God?

There are many verses in the Bible that confirm that Jesus is God. Colossians 2:9 explains that "For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.” There are some individuals, cults, and religions that argue against this. Let’s look some verses that record what Jesus said about Himself.

John 5:18 NLT So the Jewish leaders tried all the harder to find a way to kill him. For he not only broke the Sabbath, he called God his Father, thereby making himself equal with God.

John 8:24 NKJV Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”

The word “He” has been added by the english translators, but Jesus used "I Am” by itself. This is the same name God used when He revealed Himself to Moses in Exodus 3:14. Jesus says this again in John 8:58Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

The religious leaders of Jesus’ day had no doubt about who He claimed to be. John 10:30-33 I and My Father are one.” Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them,“Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?” The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.”

If this was a mistake, surely Jesus would have corrected it. Instead, He makes it even clearer to them in the following verses and makes an escape from their murderous designs. There are events in the other gospels where Jesus receives worship and doesn’t correct the worshiper, even though He teaches that God alone deserves worship.

Finally, in Revelation 1:17,18 Jesus says this: “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.” This is a clear reference to Isaiah 44:6 in which God makes this statement:

“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel,

And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts:

‘I am the First and I am the Last;

Besides Me there is no God.”

The word “Trinity” is found nowhere in scripture, but it represents a Christian doctrine that is well supported in both the Old and New Testament. Those who want to discredit the deity of Jesus have to manipulate scripture and avoid every obvious explanation.
