Was Jesus just a good man or was He actually God? John 1:1 says He is God.
Jesus lived, breathed, walked, and talked on this earth. According to Scripture, Jesus was a man.
Scripture also tells us that Jesus is God.
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1:2 He was in the beginning with God.
1:3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
1:4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
1:5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:1-5 (ESV)
Can we be sure that the “Word” referenced here is Jesus? Of course! Look at verses 14-15.
1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
1:15 (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.'”)
John 1:14-15 (ESV)

John 1:1 – God? Or “A God?”
Who is God? It’s a question many have asked, and a question many have tried to answer. If you ask 100 people, you’ll get 100 different answers.
Who is God? It’s a question many have asked, and a question many have tried to answer. If you ask 100 people, you’ll get 100 different answers. The best person to tell you about God is God Himself, just like the best person to tell me about you is – you guessed it – you. Does God tell us about Himself? You bet. In His Word.
Tim paints a beautiful word picture of who God is, according to the Scriptures.

An outline of Ezra and an outline of Nehemiah, two Old Testament books.
We’ve recently (like a few minutes ago) added two new outlines to truthsaves. Each gives a brief overview of the book and a brief outline of the main points of the book. The outlines are on the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. We’ve (well, Tim has) finished Old Testament outlines up through Jeremiah. I simply have to get them formatted (which will take me a bit of time) for the site. So keep checking back in the next few days and you’ll see some new outlines.
See the outline of Ezra here.
