Daily Bible Nugget #451, John 11:27

The Nugget:

Joh 11:27  She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

My Comment:

CONSIDER THE QUESTION: Did Jesus Himself really claim to be the Son of God?

Discussions in the “Islam and Christianity Debate Group” touch upon this question.

Muslims firmly believe that God can have no son.

One of the Muslim participants in all sincerity warned Christians:

“Please don’t say “son of God” because God [can] have no parents, sisters, or brothers. So please be careful. If not, you will see your reward.”

I responded:

Abdulrahaman Sabiru Haruna, I know that is what Muslims sincerely believe, because that is what they have been taught.

The Bible declares otherwise. Jesus is called the Son of God in the Bible. Since true Christians believe the Bible, they must believe that Jesus is the Son of God in order to be saved. Anyone who does not believe that Jesus is the Son of God will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon them.

1Jn 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 
1Jn 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 
1Jn 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 

Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Mat 14:33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God. 

Jesus Christ Himself claimed to be the Son of God. If Jesus made a false claim, then He could not be a prophet sent by God, but a liar, who was deceived himself.

Joh 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

Joh 9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 
Joh 9:36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? 
Joh 9:37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 

Even the enemies of Jesus Christ testified to the fact that Jesus said He was the Son of God:

Mat 27:43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God. 

To say Jesus is the Son of God does not mean we say that God has parents, sisters, brothers, or a mother. Jesus Christ has always been the Son of God. The Jews understood well that when their Messiah would come, that He would be the Son of God.

Joh 11:27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. 

Now, notice I have given you direct evidence from the Bible that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. To believe otherwise is to not believe the Bible.
