|Deity of Christ|
In Christianity, Jesus is taught to be both fully human and fully God. In the Bible, there are numerous passages that show Jesus' divinity. In the Gospel of John the opening statement tells us that Jesus, the Word, is God. Jesus himself said that He and the Father were one.
C.S. Lewis on the deity of Jesus
- "A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said woul not be a great moral teacher. He would be either a lunatic - on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg - or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us."
