Four Apostles Name Jesus as God

Jesus is God

  Here are a few of the verses that are unambiguous in their declaration of the Deity of Jesus Christ. 

  The Apostle John says (italics mine):

  1 In the beginning was the Word, 
     and the Word was with God,
     and the Word was God

  2 He was with God in the beginning.

  3 all things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created." John 1

  "... Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life." 1 John 5:20 

  The Apostle Thomas, confronted with the resurrected Christ, finally understands:

27 Then He said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and observe My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My side. Don’t be an unbeliever, but a believer.”

28 Thomas responded to Him, “My Lord and my God!” John 20

  The Apostle Peter says:

  "Simeon Peter, a slave and an apostle of Jesus Christ: To those who have obtained a faith of equal privilege with ours through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 1:1

  The Apostle Paul says:

  "... Christ Himself... He is God, the One Who rules over everything and is worthy of eternal praise! Amen." Romans 9:5 

  "... while we wait for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ." Titus 2:13

  "... For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, Who is the head over every ruler and authority." Colossians 2:8-10 

  The Bible is explicit in more than a few places, making the teaching crystal clear:
