The Divine Son - Deity
This month we will be talking about the Second member of the Trinity, the Lord Jesus Christ. John 1 has an incredibly clear statement on the deity of Christ.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men (John 1:1-4).
It tells us first of all that the Word or Jesus Christ was personally present with God the Father as a member of the Trinity. Then, it says flatly the Word was deity. In the Greek New Testament God the Father is usually identified by having the word “the” in Greek placed directly in front of the word God. When God is without a “the” in front of it, it is emphasizing deity as it does here for Jesus Christ. Not only is he identified as God but he can do the actions of God. Everything that exists is a result of his creative power. The one who rescued us on the cross is God himself in the person of Jesus Christ. No other religion in the world makes such a claim. No other religion gives such security.
