… because He said to

The Authenticity of Jesus Christ As the Son of God… a mini-lesson in theology.

View #1 – Jesus Christ is the the son of God.

View #2 – Jesus Christ is not the son of God, but was a great teacher.

[Jesus says] who do you say that I am? ” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.” (Matt 16:15-18)

“Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” (John 14:9)

View #1 Jesus Christ tells the truth and is the son of God

View #2 Jesus Christ is a liar and is therefore a terrible teacher.

One of my favorite quotes of all time,

A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic – on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg – or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us.” C.S. Lewis
