The Bible never records Jesus saying the precise words, "I am God". That does not mean, however, that He did not proclaim that He is God; for example, Jesus' words in John 10:30, "I and the Father are one". The Jews' reaction to this statement was very antagonistic that Jesus He was claiming to be God. They tried to stone Him for that very reason: "You, a mere man, claim to be God" (John 10:33). The Jews understood exactly what Jesus was claiming — deity. When Jesus declared, "I and the Father are one", He was saying that He and the Father are of one nature and essence. John 8:58 is another example. Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth - before Abraham was born, I am!" Jews who heard this statement responded by taking up stones to kill Him for blasphemy, as the Mosaic Law commanded (Leviticus 24:16).

Jesus plainly stated that he was more than a good man. He said: “I am God’s Son.” (John 10:36) Of course, anyone could claim to be the Son of God. But if Jesus’ claim were false, what would that make him? Really, not a good man, but a great fraud! The most reliable testimony came from God himself. He twice said concerning Jesus: “This is my Son.” (Matthew 3:17; 17:5) Just think: The Scriptures report only a few occasions when God’s own voice was heard on earth yet on two of them he affirmed Jesus as his Son! This is by far the best proof that Jesus was who he said he was. Jesus never claimed to be God, but he repeatedly spoke of himself as “God’s Son.” Even his enemies acknowledged this. Jesus never even suggested that he was God or was equal to him. So to teach such a thing dishonors Jesus. When Jesus was a man on earth, did he know all that the future held? No, for he humbly acknowledged: “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Matt. 24:36) “When the writers of the New Testament speak of God they mean the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. When they speak of Jesus Christ, they do not speak of him, nor do they think of him as God. He is God’s Christ, God’s Son, God’s Wisdom, God’s Word.

Why on earth would Jesus have said that you are God? You did not even exist at the time he was around.

Jesus hinted at His divinity. The reason Jesus did not directly say He was God was because people would have killed Him. Remember the time when He said, "..... before Abraham was, I AM"? They took up stones to stone Jesus. He had to disappear.

Jesus was recorded saying: "Very truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!" (John 8:58) "I am" is the way God called Himself to Moses. "God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.'" (Exodus 3:14)
Answer #11 | 23/07 2014 12:51
Where in the Bible did Jesus say the exact words 'I am a man', or ' I am a prophet'? but we know he was both a prophet and a man. It is not necessary for Jesus to say the exact phrase "I am a man," for us to know that he was a man. Likewise, it is not necessary for Jesus to utter the exact three words "I am God," in order for us to determine whether or not he is divine. Jesus may not have said the exact sentence "I am God," but he did claim the divine name for himself (Exo. 3:14 with John 8:58), and he also received worship (Matt. 2:2; 14:33; 28:9; John 9:35-38). When people worshipped him, he never told them not to. Surely if he was only a prophet, he would told them NOT to worship him. Also, If he didn't claim to be God, why would he have been tried for blasphemy?

Here are a couple verses that may help: John 10:30 "I and the Father are one.”" 1 John 5:7 " For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

For your interest... 8:55 although you do not know him. But I know him, and if I were to say: I do not know him, I should be a liar, as you are liars yourselves. But I do know him, and I faithfully keep his word. 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to think that he would see my Day; he saw it and was glad.' 8:57 The Jews then said, 'You are not fifty yet, and you have seen Abraham!' 8:58 Jesus replied: 'I tell you most solemnly, before Abraham ever was, I Am'. 8:59 At this they picked up stones to throw at him[*b]; but Jesus hid himself and left the Temple.

There are six times where Jesus spoke of himself as being "the Son of God". In five of those six incidences it states that the people hearing him took that as a claim to deity, and four of the six times they attempted to kill him for making that statement. The fifth time, when he made that claim to the High Priest, they crucified him for the statement, So the people at the time when Jesus lived believed that he was claiming to be God.
Answer #18 | 23/07 2014 14:15
John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? So Jesus was saying that WE are gods. We are.
Answer #19 | 24/07 2014 07:45
Jesus never said "I am God" in the Bible. Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
Answer #20 | 23/07 2014 19:15
it seems to be the other way around: The only possibility for that would be if we rewrote the Bible: For example, we could change "“God anointed him with holy spirit and power" to "God anointed God with holy spirit and power." And rewrite1 Cor 8:6. "There is actually to us one God, the Father, from whom all things are and we for him; and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are and we through him." and change it to "there is actually to us one God, the Son, from whom all things are and we for him; But how would you explain the rest," and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are and we through him"? I don´t see how we can change John 20:17 "But go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God." You could try to change 1 Cor 11:13 "the head of the Christ is God" to "the head of the Christ is Christ." Ephesians 1:17 would be a tough one to change " 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory... We could try to change the possessive "my" to "your" in Revelation 3:12. Then we would have: ‘The one who conquers—I will make him a pillar in the temple of "your" God, and he will by no means go out from it anymore, and I will write upon him the name of "your" God and the name of the city of "your" God, the New Jerusalem that descends out of heaven from "your" God, and my own new name. That would still be rather odd, don´t you think?
Answer #21 | 23/07 2014 13:32
I have not seen any reference in the Bible where Jesus says he is god, only God's son. When Jesus said, he and the Father are one, it reminds me of the closeness of the husband and wife who are considered as one flesh in a marriage, although they are two separate persons. Jesus was also sent from heaven. The angels did not send him to the earth, his Heavenly Father did. Then there is the voice from heaven giving Jesus approval at his baptism. Obviously the voice was his Father's who was in heaven while Jesus was on the earth. Jesus was definitely God's son and that is how he referred to himself.
Answer #22 | 24/07 2014 22:33
Nowhere. If Jesus were God, he would have plainly said so. After all he had no problem claiming he was the Son of God. Why not just tell everyone straight up--- " I am God" He never said it because Jesus is not the one true God. He is the Son of God. Many times Jesus tells us he has a God. How can God have a God? He can't. Why would Almighty God need a God?
Answer #23 | 24/07 2014 20:31
He said that before Abraham, whom the Jewish folks credited with founding the religion, there was I AM, which is how God tells is how he should be addressed. So when Jesus said "Before Abraham, was God" he is not saying he, Jesus, is God. You guys would have less trouble if you would actually read the old testament. And not look for Jesus back there, there is a NEW testament for a reason.
