E15 – Did Jesus Claim To Be God? Part 1
Did Jesus claim to be God as Christianity teaches? I’m going to break this question down over two episodes. In part one we’re going to examine the following:
1st, did Jesus claim to be the Messiah? If he did, what did that mean? Peter declared, “You are the Christ (Messiah), the Son of the living God.” I’ll break down Jesus’ response to that? At his trial the high priest asked Jesus, “Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?” And what did Jesus answer? What did he mean by that and what are the implications? Has Christianity gotten all wrong for over 2,000 years?
2nd, did Jesus claim to be the Son of God? Or, did that title mean he was just a unique human being? Or did it mean something else entirely? In the parable that Jesus told in Mark 12 we learn what Jesus thought of Himself. Did he really understand that he was God’s only, beloved Son, or that he was just another prophet? Maybe the highest of all prophets? Was he God’s final messenger and the heir to the vineyard; to Israel itself? Does this parable really tell us that Jesus believed and taught that He was the only unique Son of the living God? Or does the parable mean something else? Messiah? Son of God? What do skeptics say? Did Jesus actually claim those titles? How should we understand all that today? Let’s watch.
E14 – Jesus’ Virgin Birth Part 3
The world has experienced unusual births many times. For example, the Fisher quintuplets were born in South Dakota in 1963. The Stanek sextuplets were born in Colorado in 1973. The Chuckwu octuplets were born in Texas in 1998. And the Gosselin sextuplets were born in Pennsylvania in 2004, born into a family that already had a set of twin girls who were 4 years old at the time. From 6 newborns then to 8 teenagers today living in the same house. Wow!
But the only truly unique birth is still the birth of Jesus the Messiah. There has not been, nor will there ever be another birth like his.
In Part 3, we’re going to look at another reason why Jesus’ virgin birth is so important: because it’s necessary for our redemption. Without Jesus’ virgin birth there is no possibility for salvation. What do I mean? Let’s see.
About one hundred fifty years ago, a man named Charlie Peace was arrested and convicted of murder. He was sentenced to die in Armley Jail in Leeds, England. On the morning of his scheduled execution, he slowly walked behind the prison chaplain on his way to the...
