Jesus was and is the Son of God

Jesus was a spirit being before he was born on earth.  Jesus was called “the Word” and he created all things as God’s representative and through God’s power and name.

Proverbs 8:23 – 30 (New Living Version), “I was appointed in ages past, at the very first, before the earth began. I was born before the oceans were created, before the springs bubbled forth their waters. Before the mountains were formed, before the hills, I was born—before he had made the earth and fields and the first handfuls of soil. I was there when he established the heavens, when he drew the horizon on the oceans. I was there when he set the clouds above, when he established springs deep in the earth. I was there when he set the limits of the seas, so they would not spread beyond their boundaries. And when he marked off the earth’s foundations, I was the architect at his side. I was his constant delight, rejoicing always in his presence.”

Colossians 1:15-17 (New Living Version), “Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.  He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see…. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else…”

Jesus came to earth and became a perfect human being.  God was his father and Mary was his mother.

John 1:14, “And the Word (Logos) 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.”

Luke 1:26 – 35  “The angel (Gabriel) said… ‘You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus.  He will be great and he will be called the Son of the Most High’…Then Mary said to the angel, ‘How will this happen since I haven’t had sexual relations with a man?’ The angel replied, ‘The Holy Spirit will come over you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore, the one who is to be born will be holy. He will be called God’s Son.’”

Jesus lived on the earth and at the age of 30, he consecrated his life to God. He sacrificed his own human will to obey God’s will through suffering and shame.

Luke 3:21,22,23, “While everyone else was being baptized, Jesus himself was baptized…A voice from heaven said, You are my own dear Son, and I am pleased with you… When Jesus began to preach, he was about thirty years old.”

Hebrews 5:8, “though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.

After 3½ years, he was crucified on the cross, and gave his life to become the Redeemer for all of mankind.  He was resurrected on the third day as a spirit being of the highest divine nature.

Romans 6:9  (New Living Translation), “We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him.”  

Philippians 2:9, “Therefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name.”
