How can Jesus be God?


Here are a bunch of things that say Jesus can't be God

  • God is invisible, Jesus was visible
  • God is immutable (unchangeable), Jesus changed forms
  • God is not a man, Jesus was a man
  • God is a spirit, Jesus was flesh and bones
  • God doesn’t pray, Jesus prayed
  • God submits to no one, Jesus submitted to God
  • God is immortal, Jesus died
  • God is impeccable (impossibility of sin), Jesus overcame temptation
  • God is untemptable, Jesus was tempted
  • God is Omnipotent (all-powerful), Jesus couldn’t carry a cross.
  • God is Omnipresent (everywhere), Jesus existed in a body of flesh.
  • God is Omniscient (all-knowing), Jesus learned
  • God is tireless, Jesus slept


See: Jesus is God and Jesus Is the I AM.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. ... And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:1-3, 14)."So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us"" (Matthew 1:22-23).

"Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men" (Philippians 2:5-7).

"For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form" (Colossians 1:9).

When an argument directly contradicts the Scriptures, there is something wrong with the argument. The core flaw is the assumption that God cannot take on flesh and live as a man. God said otherwise in His word.
