Jesus of Nazareth claimed to be «I am», God Him self. The Jewish prophet Isaiah foretold that a child would be born, a Son, that would be called Mighty God.
Can God come down from Heaven, and walk among us in the form of a man?
Of course He can. Who can stop Him?
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
The Jewish people in general have been struggling to make sense out of this verse. Because of Jew-hate in the name of «Christianity», they have not been willing to consider if Jesus of Nazareth could be the Messiah. But hardly any person of Jewish origin fits into the prophecies of the Messiah that was promised. Because the Messiah was supposed to make God of Israel the one and only God of all the Earth.
Isaiah 54: 5
For your Maker is your husband, the LORD Almighty is his name, the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth.
Now, who is that Jew, the Son, who would be called God of all nations?
Jesus Him self claimed to be God, who had come to Earth. Today, He is the only Jew that is known by name in every nation on the face of the Earth. Over a billion people claim that He is God the Son. Is it possible, that they all are wrong
I tell you the truth, Jesus answered, before Abraham was born, I am.
I and the Father are one.
The most important one, answered Jesus, is this: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.
Claiming to be God, and One with His Father, thats why the religious leaders of His days wanted to kill Him. They felt He was a threat to their authority over the people. The Messiah was betrayed, and handed over to be crucified by sinful men.
Please do not forget that the Messiah is not dead. He paid the perfect atonement for our sins, was crucified and rose from the grave after three days. He is alive. Give your life to Him.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
