Is Jesus God (divine)?

Reasons given for answering "Yes"
  • The Bible says Jesus is God
  • Jesus historically claimed to be God

      Jesus historically claimed to be God.[Forthcoming]

      But, so what? Couldn't it simply be that…
      Jesus was mistaken? [Forthcoming]
      Jesus was lying? [Forthcoming]

      1. There are a number of ways to argue for this.[Forthcoming] One can go a long way, however, by demonstrating that the first Christians worshipped and reverred Jesus as God. While I haven't read this yet, the best book out on the subject is widely regarded to be the one recently written by Larry Hurtado, How on Earth Did Jesus Become a God?: Historical Questions about Earliest Devotion to Jesus (Wm. B. Eerdmans, 2005)]. I will be reading it and incorporating its arguments into Belief Map as soon as I can. Also see Mike Licona's opening speech in his debate with Dale Martin at Acadia Divinity College.
