"And behold, they brought to Jesus a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, Son, be of good courage; your sins are forgiven you. And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, This Man blasphemes! Who can forgive sins except for One, God? But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, Your sins are forgiven you, or to say, Arise and walk? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins; then He said to the paralytic, Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house. And he arose and departed to his house." – Mark 2: 4-12It would be absurd for me to tell you, "It's okay, I forgive you" when you hurt someone else. Only God has such a right, and that is exactly what Jesus claimed for himself.
"Again the high priest questioned Him, saying to Him, Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? Jesus said, I AM. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of Heaven. Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, What further need do we have of witnesses? You have heard the blasphemy!" – Mark 14:61-64
"Jesus said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise." – John 2:16
"[Jesus said] And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven." – John 3:13
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." – John 3:16
"And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life." – John 5:40Only God is the source of life. Thus, Jesus is God. Similarly, Jesus claims that he will destroy his body, and then raise himself up from the dead (John 2:18-21). Only God can do that.
"For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me." – John 6:38No ordinary human prophet can claim to come from heaven. Nor did Jesus (or anyone else) call him an angel who has come from heaven. Thus, the only option that remains is that Jesus is God himself come down from heaven.
"Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am." – John 8:58In using the present tense to refer to a time before Abraham (who lived 2000 years before him), Jesus indicates that he is the eternal, self-existing one: God. Look at the reaction of the Jews. There was no confusion about what Jesus meant!
"I and my Father are one....the Father is in me and I in him" – John 10:30, 38
"Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith Jehovah of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered" – Zechariah 13:7
"A virgin will conceive and bear a son, and call his name Immanuel [God with us] " – Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23
"For unto us a child is born, a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom" – Isaiah 9:6-7.Reference # 4:
"You will not leave My soul in Sheol (abode of the dead); nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption." – Psalm 16:10So there is a person who is to be resurrected. Now this person is called a "Holy One". Since no ordinary person is holy (Luke 18:19), this person has to be divine. The person called "You" also has to be divine, for he has authority over death. So there is a plurality of divine persons here. You may argue that this person could be an angel. But there is no record of an angel being resurrected. Jesus was resurrected, and thus Psalm 16:10 shows that Jesus is divine, as Peter implied when he quoted this verse in Acts 2:27.
"Your throne O God is for ever; the scepter of your kingdom is a just scepter...God – your God – has anointed you..." – Psalm 45:6-7
"And we [Peter and other disciples] believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God." – John 6:69Here Peter calls Jesus the son of God and Jesus does not object. Also note that if Peter was referring to "son" in a more general sense, he could have called all the disciples present there the sons of God.
"The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand." – John 3:35John the Baptist refers to Jesus (see John 3:22 onward for the context) as the Son.
"[The Samaritans at Sychar] said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard [him] ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world." – John 4:42John records the Samaritans' belief that Jesus is the savior of the world without any hint of disagreement. However, only God can be the savior (Isaiah 43:11). So John and Isaiah together imply that Jesus is God.
"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. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that comes after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.... The next day John sees Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world. And I [John] saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God." – John 1: 1, 2, 3, 14, 15, 29, 34Note the following:-
"Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel." – John 1:49
"The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God" – Mark 1:1
"But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God." – John 5:17-18So John, the disciple of Jesus, and the other Jews had no problems in interpreting Jesus' statement. They interpreted it "literally" - to imply that Jesus was also divine (and this infuriated them). If at all they had misunderstood him, Jesus should have corrected them, but he doesn't. In the subsequent verses, Jesus continues to refer to God as his Father. So the answer: a big YES.
"I will declare the decree: the LORD (Jehovah) has said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee." – Psalm 2:7
"God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee." – Acts 13:33
"Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he does, these also does the Son likewise." – John 5:19So Jesus can do nothing?! But we are told that Jesus does things. For instance, he created the universe according to John (John 1:3). In John 5:21 Jesus himself says that he quickens those he wills just like his Father.
"When He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry." – Matthew 4:2Since he was God, he could have "fixed" the chemical reactions in his stomach to avoid feeling hungry, but he didn't. Similarly if Jesus went to school as a boy, do you think he'd get full marks in all his tests after playing the whole day? No! He would have to study like any other child. Jesus was not just God, but man as well. This necessarily involved limiting himself in certain areas.
There is abundant Biblical evidence that Jesus is divine, both from Jesus' lips and the statements made by others. Further, there is abundant evidence that the Biblical record is correct. Jesus said that your eternal destiny depends on whether you receive or reject/ignore him.
