52: New Year New Beginning – Is Jesus God?

January 8, 2023

“Give Jesus a year and He’ll change your life”




John 5:16-18 (NLT)
16 So the Jewish leaders began harassing Jesus for breaking the Sabbath rules.  17 But Jesus replied, “My Father is always working, and so am I.”  18 So the Jewish leaders tried all the harder to find a way to kill him.  For he not only broke the Sabbath, he called God his Father, thereby making himself equal with God.


John 8:58-59 (NLT)
58 Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I AM!”  59 At that point they picked up stones to throw at him.  But Jesus was hidden from them and left the Temple.


Mark 2:5-7 (NLT)
5 Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “My child, your sins are forgiven.”  6 But some of the teachers of religious law who were sitting there thought to themselves,  7 “What is he saying? This is blasphemy! Only God can forgive sins!”


John 10:27-33 (NLT)
27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.  28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish.  No one can snatch them away from me, 29 for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else.  No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand.  30 The Father and I are one.”  31 Once again the people picked up stones to kill him.  32 Jesus said, “At my Father’s direction I have done many good works.  For which one are you going to stone me?”  33 They replied, “We’re stoning you not for any good work, but for blasphemy!  You, a mere man, claim to be God.”


John 1:16-18 (NLT)
16 From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another.  17 For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ.  18 No one has ever seen God.  But the unique One, who is himself God, is near to the Father’s heart.  He has revealed God to us.


God is willing to .


John 1:29, 32-34 (NLT)
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him.  John was baptizing people at the Jordan River and said, “Look!  The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!  32 Then John testified, “I saw the Holy Spirit descending like a dove from heaven and resting upon him.  33 I didn’t know he was the one, but when God sent me to baptize with water, he told me, ‘The one on whom you see the Spirit descend and rest is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’  34 I saw this happen to Jesus, so I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.”
