A disciple's study

The last post in our study of Great Doctrines of the Bible by Martyn Lloyd-Jones examined the Incarnation. Today’s post provides biblical evidence for the deity of Christ (chapter 24, vol. 1 of Great Doctrines).

8 Biblical Demonstrations of the Deity of Christ

MLJ states that the biblical evidence for the deity of Christ is “voluminous,” so he narrows it down to 8 headings:

Divine Names are Ascribed to Him
There are around sixteen names that are ascribed to Jesus that implies his deity, for example:
– Son of God (used at least 40 times)
– Only Begotten Son of God (John 1:18)
– The First and the Last (Rev. 1:17)
– Alpha and Omega (Rev. 1:11)
– The Holy One (Acts 3:14)
– Lord (used several hundred times)
– Lord of glory (1 Cor. 2:8)
– God (John 20:28)
– Emmanuel (Matt. 1:23)
– Great God and Saviour Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13)
