And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. (John 20:30-31)
Those who content themselves with believing Jesus was a “good” man but not the Son of God have a problem. A “good” man does not claim to be the Son of God who is doing the works of his Father; Jesus declared both (John 10:31, 36-38). Yes, those who deny Jesus is “God with us” have a problem. If Jesus was “good” but not the Son of God then he would not have lied and said, “I am the Son of God”. Yet, Jesus said he is the Son of God. Even the enemies of Jesus did not deny his miracles, but attributed them to the devil. We affirm Jesus is the Son of God and truly “good” as only God can be (Mark 10:17-18). Deniers of Christ’s deity are illogical when they try to assert Jesus was “good” but not God. Our faith is built on the credible testimony of his words and works – testimony that 2000 years later still validates faith that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.
