CHRISTOLOGY: Doctrine of Jesus Christ

Principle

1. God the Son.

  1. Christ is the eternal Son of God.
  2. Jesus is God in flesh. John 8:58; Exo. 3:14; John 1:1, 14; 10:30-33; 20:28; Col. 2:9; Phil. 2:5-8; Heb. 1:8; 1 John 4:2-3 - teaches that if you deny that Jesus is God in flesh, then you are of the spirit of Antichrist.
  3. John 8:24 - Jesus said that if you do not believe "that I am," you will die in your sins. In Greek I am is 'ego eimi,' which means ‘I am.' These are the same words used in John 8:58, where Jesus says "before Abraham was, I am." He was claiming the divine title by quoting Exo. 3:14.
  4. The Greek Septuagint is the Hebrew Old Testament translated into Greek and done by Jews around 250 B.C. They translated Exo. 3:14 as 'ego eimi' "I AM").
  5. Jesus is the proper object of faith. It is not simply enough to have faith. Faith is only as valid as the person in whom you put it. You must put your faith in the proper person.
