Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

Proof that Jesus is the Son of God

  • English: child Jesus with the virgin Mary, wit...

    ‎Muslims keep saying that God is not capable of manifesting Himself in the shape of a man. Please tell me how you understand this passage?

    Genesis 18:1-15 ‘Then the Lord appeared to him by the terebinth trees of Mamre, as he was sitting in the tent door in the heat of the day. 2 So he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, three men were standing by him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the ground, 3 and said, “My Lord, if I have now found favor in Your sight, do not pass on by Your servant. 4 Please let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree. 5 And I will bring a morsel of bread, that you may refresh your hearts. After that you may pass by, inasmuch as you have come to your servant.”’They said, “Do as you have said.”

    ‘6 So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah and said, “Quickly, make ready three measures of fine meal; knead it and make cakes.” 7 And Abraham ran to the herd, took a tender and good calf, gave it to a young man, and he hastened to prepare it. 8 So he took butter and milk and the calf which he had prepared, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree as they ate.

    ‘9 Then they said to him, “Where is Sarah your wife?”

    ‘So he said, “Here, in the tent.”

    ’10 And He said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son.”

    ‘(Sarah was listening in the tent door which was behind him.) 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age; and Sarah had passed the age of childbearing.[b] 12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?”

    ’13 And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”

    ’15 But Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid.

    ‘And He said, “No, but you did laugh!”’

  •  When presented with these truths:  The Universal response is denial and deflection.  To these, here is our response:
    One. You really should begin to listen to our rebuttals to your claims so that you can respond adequately instead of just repeating yourself with the same previously defeated arguments. Please consider the following points:
    1. You already know that Jesus said He and the Father are ONE. The Jews understood that this meant He was saying He was EQUAL with God, which is why they picked up stones to stone Him for blasphemy… “33 The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, MAKE YOURSELF GOD.”2. Jesus cleverly uses Psalm 82:6 to show that calling Himself the Son of God (or even calling Himself “a god”) is technically not illegal. He says He has more right than anyone, because He was sanctified and SENT INTO THE WORD by the Father, and can PROVE His authority by His works:

    ‘Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods”’?[cPsalm 82:6] 35 If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), 36 do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? 37 If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; 38 but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.” 39 Therefore they sought again to seize Him, but He escaped out of their hand.”

    3. Jesus accused repeatedly of making Himself equal with God, and the Jews repeatedly want to kill Him because of this: John 5:18 ” Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself EQUAL WITH GOD.”

    Matt 26:63-66 ‘But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, “I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!” 64 Jesus said to him, “It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.” 65 Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, “He has spoken blasphemy! What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you have heard His blasphemy! 66 What do you think?” They answered and said, “HE IS DESERVING OF DEATH.”‘
