Bible verses that say Jesus is God
If anyone tries to tell you that Jesus is not God in the flesh close your ears because anyone who believes that blasphemy will not enter into Heaven. Jesus said if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins. If Jesus wasn’t God how could He die for our sins?
Not only your sins or my sins, but everyone in the whole world. God said that He is the only Savior. Can God lie? Scripture clearly says there is only one God so you must believe the Trinity. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are 3 divine persons in one.
These Bible verses are to show and prove that Jesus is God unlike what the Mormons teach. The Pharisees were angered because Jesus claimed to be God. If you claim Jesus is not God what makes you different from the Pharisees?
Christian quotes about Jesus being God
“Jesus is the only God who has a date in history.”
“Jesus Christ God’s Son died for me. Jesus rose from the grave for me, Jesus represents me, Jesus is for me. Jesus will raise me when I die. Your gods body or your religious body that you worship is still in the grave for he or she is not God. Only Jesus God’s Son is God. Worship Him.
“Jesus was God in the form of man. That’s hard for people to swallow that, even today, that “He was God.” That’s what He was. He wasn’t nothing less than God. He was God manifested in flesh.”
“If Jesus is not God, then there is no Christianity, and we who worship Him are nothing more than idolaters. Conversely, if He is God, those who say He was merely a good man, or even the best of men, are blasphemers. More serious still, if He is not God, then He is a blasphemer in the fullest sense of the word. If He is not God, He is not even good.” J. Oswald Sanders
“We tend to focus our attention at Christmas on the infancy of Christ. The greater truth of the holiday is His deity. More astonishing than a baby in the manger is the truth that this promised baby is the omnipotent Creator of the heavens and the earth!” John F. MacArthur
“If Jesus Christ is not true God, how could he help us? If he is not true man, how could he help us?” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“Jesus Christ is God in human flesh, and the story of His life, death, and resurrection is the only Good News the world will ever hear.” Billy Graham
“Either Jesus is the Son of God ; or a madman or worse. But His being just a great teacher? He’s not left that open to us.” C.S. Lewis
“The deity of Christ is the key doctrine of the scriptures. Reject it, and the Bible becomes a jumble of words without any unifying theme. Accept it, and the Bible becomes an intelligible and ordered revelation of God in the person of Jesus Christ.” J. Oswald Sanders
“Only by being both deity and humanity could Jesus Christ bridge the gap between where God is.” — David Jeremiah
“To see what God is like, we must look at Jesus. He perfectly represents God to men in a form which they can see and know and understand.” — William Barclay
“Touching His human nature, Jesus is no longer present with us. Touching his Divine nature, He is never absent from us.” — R.C. Sproul
“God’s nature is revealed most perfectly in the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, as recorded in the New Testament of the Bible, who was sent by God to reveal the divine nature, summarized in ‘God is Love.’” — George F. R. Ellis

14. John 13:18-19 “I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill this passage of Scripture: ‘He who shared my bread has turned against me.’ “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am who I am.

Wonderful! I was just referencing a few of these verses to a friend at work that expressed to me he doesn’t believe that Jesus is God. He believes Jesus died for our sins and then He is the Son of God, but that He is not God. I prayed and asked the Lord for His help and guidance on this and He led me to this page. Thank you for putting this together!
That’s true, I have a lot of friends believing only Jesus is the Son of God and a Savior but they don’t believe Jesus is God
May the Lord open their hearts.
Same, I’ve encountered a friend who is an INC, He called Jesus Lord but then he also says that Jesus was only a man and not God. However, It was already stated in the Bible that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one.
My friends are preaching that Jesus Christ is the son of God and not God. I pray that God open their hearts and help them believe the true Word of God that Jesus is God Amen
Thank you for researching and posting this. My SIL whom I love so much is jehovah witness and did make sense with a question that really made me think. I knew it wasn’t what I believed, but I couldn’t place what verses would clarify. Her question was “why would God have to send himself down to earth to become his own son to sacrifice himself to himself just to convince himself just to forgive us?” It is a family circle cartoon and really bothered me. Now I know why. Thank you!!!
1. why would God have to send himself down to earth? John 3;16 to save the world from sin!
2. become his own son to sacrifice himself to himself! John 1:1, In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. the word of God became human! (like us in order to connect with us).
3. to convince himself just to forgive us?”He came for us, not for himself, to give us Eternal life! John 3:16 Give us Eternal Life and John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the Life…….so through him, we can receive forgiveness and Eternal Salvation! Hoping this has been helpful to you if you have any questions feel free to send me an email! My name is Michelle, GB.
This is a really great explanation about who God is. & also in Myles Monroe teaching, says God couldn’t come himself because He couldn’t go against His own law, is why He’s always used a human body/person, or a thing like animal like in one scripture he used a donkey.
To speak. God>He’s spirit.
Wendy that scripture is found In Numbers 22:21-28
Exactly . Even my parents don’t believe Jesus is God . But they only believe that He’s the son of God and that Jesus died for our sins . I feel so disappoint and then I tried to search biblical proof on Jesus is God and I found this page . And I’m somewhere happy for myself that I believe Jesus is God unlike my parents . But I’m really sad for them.
You can refer them to this article. The word of God is powerful, it will surely enlightenment your parents. Stay blessed.
This is the most comprehensive list of verses proving Jesus is God. I use some of these verses frequently. Others I have not used as a proof. Thank you very much for compiling and categorizing these. God bless you.
Thanks alot, I will be using some of the verses here to teach on Sunday at church. God bless you
Thank you a lot for the answers about Jesus is God I have been having this question ever since I was young. I have been away from God for a long time and here are my answers.
Thank you for this website.
God bless you.
Isaiah 9:6 is another one you might add to the list. Below is from the NKJV.
“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Praise God for all of this verses that pointing out that Jesus is God, even in Matthew 1:31. A virgin will conceived a child and give birth a son and He will be called Immanuel which means God is with us…and so many many more even in Hebrew 1: 8…
Zechariah 12 is amazing, God says and they will look on me, whom they have pierced … in conjunction with Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22 which mention the one who was pierced as clearly being Jesus, this is conclusive for anyone
Praise the Lord Jesus for this article. This has really helped me to grow in my understanding of the deity of Christ.
Thank you so much,
With lots of love from Sri Lanka
I truly like the no nonsense direct approach to answers here! I have been to Seminary on Theological work and so often it is spoken with a level most cannot understand its complexioned answers. This is wonderful! God Bless, Amen!
Let God bless you for helping me to sure to others that JESUS is GOD in the flesh.
This is a very good job.
John 20:27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God.
Also, in the next verse or two, the only thing Jesus corrected Thomas on was how he had to see Jesus to believe
Thank you so much.
Jesus is my Lord, Saviour and God
Isaiah 43: 10-12
You are My witnesses,” says the Lord,
“And My servant whom I have chosen,
That you may know and believe Me,
And understand that I am He.
Before Me there was no God formed,
Nor shall there be after Me.
11 I, even I, am the Lord,
And besides Me there is no savior.
12 I have declared and saved,
I have proclaimed,
And there was no foreign god among you;
Therefore you are My witnesses,”
Says the Lord, “that I am God.
PEACE! Thanks for being the light of God to the world. More of mine ABBA father, strength in Jesus christ. Amen. I Jesus christ will be inscribed in every heart as promised by mine ABBA father in Jesus christ. Amen.Thank God for you all.
Thanks for the message on Jesus and information. I’m well pleased.
My friends are preaching that Jesus Christ is the son of God and not God. I pray that God opens their hearts and helps them believe the true Word of God that Jesus is God Amen
Jesus is God. Thank you for the beautiful scriptures. Thank you for your labor of LOVE in Jesus, the Christ.
Only those who have Spiritual discernment will know that Jesus is God . No explanation will convince them . Praise God for those of you who have accepted the truth & believe it. This was a lovely post. God bless you all!
A man prayed with me to receive Christ. Then told me he was raised as a Mormon but was not practicing his faith. I explained John 1:1 and John 14:9 to him and told him his Mormon beliefs were inconsistent with what the Bible teaches about Jesus. That if he did not believe Jesus was God, his prayer to receive Jesus was suspect. Please pray that he will read and study scripture and come to a full knowledge and understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
Yes! I was reading the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ website and they said that Jesus never called himself God, coming here I found verses that say the opposite. I will definitely add these to my memorization list.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE TRUE GOD …All GLORY & HONOR TO MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST AMEN…
This is just amazing! There is only one and it is our God Jesus Christ alone!! All glory to him alone, how great is he and his works! I am shocked beyond my imagination! My little mind cannot understand his amazing work!!!
I find it interesting that of all the different types of people and religions in the world, the world’s entire time and BC-AD calendar system is based on one man’s birthdate, Jesus the Christ. And against so many forces of opposition, I would imagine, and yet still have such significance that it was inacted and has yet to be changed. Talk about a phenomenon, to put it mildly. Only God can institute something such as this. And at a time when Jesus Christ’s name is despised of, it appears no one (with all of the powers that be) have ever felt a true desire to argue the change of the BC-AD calendar system.
It is He who changes the times and the epochs;
He removes kings and establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to wise men
And knowledge to men of understanding.
For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are CLEARLY seen, being UNDERSTOOD by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Lemme give you a round of applause and a standing ovation! The Holy Spirit is speak throgh these Word, the Word of God, in Christ. Well done, you who wrote this. May the Lord use you more as His vessel to spread the truth of God in Christ.
If Jesus is not God, then there is no Salvation from Him. No matter how ordinary human beings may offer their lives on the cross, or any form of sacrifice, no human being can redeem us from Condemnation to Salvation. Tell this to those who discard Jesus for being God.
I am really blessed reading through this article. I came across one post of one man preaching and quoting scriptures in the Bible to make a point that Jesus is not God. Seeing this article gave me an answer to the said post and will share this article with the same platform they send the post. You made my day and God bless you to do more IJMN. Amen
Amen, over, And over, And over, And over, And over. Amen. Jesus is God alone, AMEN.
Thank you so much for this amazing Bible verses which will help to stand my ground any time I’m faced with the argument that JESUS is not GOD…
God bless you for this article!

Does it make a difference as long as we believe that Jesus died for our sin?
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
Jesus told them that He is the I AM. and that unless we believe that,He is GOD we will die in our sin.
