years I argued that Jesus was the Son
of God, not God. Jesus
always said that God was HIS father but HE did
not say that HE was God. However, I have no
problem believing that Jesus is God! However if I
read scripture and base my thoughts entirely on
scripture and not on church doctrine,I must
believe that Jesus is THE SON OF GOD. I can
simply base that in scripture, Jesus has not
denied that HE is God, therefore a person could
easily believe that HE is indeed God.
had always argued that God could not be born of a
human and have a human mother. I argued that God
was eternal. I argued that God could not be
sacrificed. I argued that God could not die. I
argued that God could not be human/flesh and be
tempted as Satan tried to do. I had many
arguments but I find it hard to argue with
scripture... John 1:14.
I am showing the entire chapter but especially
pay attention to John 1:14 from the KJV and The
Living Bible. Based on that scripture, Jesus was
indeed half human. The
Christian religion is the most complicated
religion on the planet. I
thank God I have experienced many miracles from
Jesus/God... Therefore I know it's supernatural
and from God/Jesus. I still wonder if the embryo
of God was implanted into Mary. That would
TOTALLY explain to me how Jesus is 100 percent
God. However if Jesus' mother is human that makes
Jesus half human and I simply have a hard time
thinking that God is part human.
is impossible for God! Just my thoughts!
King James Version (KJV)
First Chapter of John - Be
Sure To Read Verse 14
1 In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him
was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the
darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of
the Light, that all men through him might
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear
witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every
man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by
him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he
power to become the sons of God, even to them
that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will
of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made
flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the
only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and
15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying,
This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after
me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
16 And of his fulness have all we received, and
grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and
truth came by Jesus Christ.
18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only
begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the
Father, he hath declared him.
19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews
sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask
him, Who art thou?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; but
confessed, I am not the Christ.
21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias?
And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet?
And he answered, No.
22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we
may give an answer to them that sent us. What
sayest thou of thyself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the
wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as
said the prophet Esaias.
24 And they which were sent were of the
25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why
baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ,
nor Elias, neither that prophet?
26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with
water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye
27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred
before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy
28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond
Jordan, where John was baptizing.
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him,
and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh
away the sin of the world.
30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a
man which is preferred before me: for he was
31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made
manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing
32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit
descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode
33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to
baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon
whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and
remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth
with the Holy Ghost.
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the
Son of God.
35 Again the next day after John stood, and two
of his disciples;
36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith,
Behold the Lamb of God!
37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and
they followed Jesus.
38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and
saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto
him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted,
Master,) where dwellest thou?
39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came
and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that
day: for it was about the tenth hour.
40 One of the two which heard John speak, and
followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and
saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which
is, being interpreted, the Christ.
42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus
beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of
Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by
interpretation, A stone.
43 The day following Jesus would go forth into
Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him,
44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of
Andrew and Peter.
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him,
We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and
the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the
son of Joseph.
46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any
good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith
unto him, Come and see.
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith
of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no
48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou
me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that
Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig
tree, I saw thee.
49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi,
thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of
50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I
said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree,
believest thou? thou shalt see greater things
51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say
unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and
the angels of God ascending and descending upon
the Son of man.
King James Version (KJV)
The Living Bible
First Chapter of John
Before anything else
existed, there was Christ, with God. He has
always been alive and is himself God. He created
everything there isnothing exists that he
didnt make. 4 Eternal life is in him, and
this life gives light to all mankind. His life is
the light that shines through the
darknessand the darkness can never
6-7 God sent John the Baptist as a
witness to the fact that Jesus Christ is the true
Light. John himself was not the Light; he was
only a witness to identify it.
9 Later on, the one who is the true Light arrived
to shine on everyone coming into the world.
10 But although he made the world, the world
didnt recognize him when he came. Even in
his own land and among his own people, the Jews,
he was not accepted. Only a few would welcome and
receive him. But to all who received him, he gave
the right to become children of God. All they
needed to do was to trust him to save them. All
those who believe this are reborn!not a
physical rebirth resulting from human passion or
planbut from the will of God.
And Christ became a human
being and lived here on earth among us
and was full of loving forgiveness and truth. And
some of us have seen his glorythe glory of
the only Son of the heavenly Father!
John pointed him out to the people, telling the
crowds, This is the one I was talking about
when I said, Someone is coming who is
greater by far than I amfor he existed long
before I did! We have all benefited
from the rich blessings he brought to
usblessing upon blessing heaped upon us!
For Moses gave us only the Law with its rigid
demands and merciless justice, while Jesus Christ
brought us loving forgiveness as well. No one has
ever actually seen God, but, of course, his only
Son has, for he is the companion of the Father
and has told us all about him.
The Jewish leaders sent priests and assistant
priests from Jerusalem to ask John whether he
claimed to be the Messiah.
He denied it flatly. I am not the
Christ, he said.
Well then, who are you? they asked.
Are you Elijah?
No, he replied.
Are you the Prophet?
Then who are you? Tell us, so we can give
an answer to those who sent us. What do you have
to say for yourself?
He replied, I am a voice from the barren
wilderness, shouting as Isaiah prophesied,
Get ready for the coming of the
Then those who were sent by the Pharisees asked
him, If you arent the Messiah or
Elijah or the Prophet, what right do you have to
John told them, I merely baptize with
water, but right here in the crowd is someone you
have never met, who will soon begin his ministry
among you, and I am not even fit to be his
This incident took place at Bethany, a village on
the other side of the Jordan River where John was
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and
said, Look! There is the Lamb of God who
takes away the worlds sin! He is the one I
was talking about when I said, Soon a man
far greater than I am is coming, who existed long
before me! I didnt know he was the
one, but I am here baptizing with water in order
to point him out to the nation of Israel.
Then John told about seeing the Holy Spirit in
the form of a dove descending from heaven and
resting upon Jesus.
I didnt know he was the one,
John said again, but at the time God sent
me to baptize he told me, When you see the
Holy Spirit descending and resting upon
someonehe is the one you are looking for.
He is the one who baptizes with the Holy
Spirit. I saw it happen to this man, and I
therefore testify that he is the Son of
The following day as John was standing with two
of his disciples, Jesus walked by. John looked at
him intently and then declared, See! There
is the Lamb of God!
Then Johns two disciples turned and
Jesus looked around and saw them following.
What do you want? he asked them.
Sir, they replied, where do you
Come and see, he said. So they went
with him to the place where he was staying and
were with him from about four oclock that
afternoon until the evening. (One of these men
was Andrew, Simon Peters brother.)
Andrew then went to find his brother Peter and
told him, We have found the Messiah!
And he brought Peter to meet Jesus.
Jesus looked intently at Peter for a moment and
then said, You are Simon, Johns
sonbut you shall be called Peter, the
The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He
found Philip and told him, Come with
me. (Philip was from Bethsaida, Andrew and
Philip now went off to look for Nathanael and
told him, We have found the
Messiah!the very person Moses and the
prophets told about! His name is Jesus, the son
of Joseph from Nazareth!
Nazareth! exclaimed Nathanael.
Can anything good come from there?
Just come and see for yourself,
As they approached, Jesus said, Here comes
an honest mana true son of Israel.
How do you know what I am like?
And Jesus replied, I could see you under
the fig tree before Philip found you.
Nathanael replied, Sir, you are the Son of
Godthe King of Israel!
Jesus asked him, Do you believe all this
just because I told you I had seen you under the
fig tree? You will see greater proofs than this.
You will even see heaven open and the angels of
God coming back and forth to me, the
