Blessed, you should quit skimming over the Bible and actually do some comprehensive study of it!
Let's start with on of the most important Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament about the nature of Jesus:
Isaiah 9:6 - written about seven centuries before the birth of Christ (KJV): "For unto us a child
is born, unto us a son
is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God
, The everlasting Father
, The Prince of Peace."
John 1:1: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God
, and the Word was God
John 1:14: "And the Word became flesh
and dwelt among us"
Matthew 1:23: "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which translated means, "God with us
"John 10:30: "I and the Father are ONE
John 14:9: "Jesus said to him, "...He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how do you say, `Show us the Father?'"
1 Timothy 3:16: "GOD
was manifest in the flesh."
1 Timothy 6:15: "... our Lord
Jesus Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time-- He who is the blessed and only Sovereign
, the King of kings and Lord of lords."
Hebrews 1:8: "But of the Son He says, "Thy
throne, O God
, is forever and ever..."
Titus 2:13: "...the appearing of the glory of our great God
and Savior, Christ Jesus
2 Peter 1:1: "by the righteousness of our God
and Savior, Jesus Christ
Revelation 19:16: "And on His robe and on His thigh He [Jesus] has a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."
The famous doubting disciple, Thomas, finally realizes who Jesus is, as he sees him post resurrection (John 17:5):
"Thomas answered and said to Him [Jesus], "My Lord and my God
Why do you think the Jews wanted to kill Jesus - as they knew He was claiming to be God?
"For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God
." (John 10:33)
Jesus was sinless and perfect - and yet, isn't only God perfect? Jesus accepted worship, and yet the Bible asserts us to never worship anyone but God. Some thought the apostles should be bowed to and worshiped - and yet they admonished those who did this, correcting them that only God should be worshiped.
And there is a LOT more - Did Jesus claim to be God? http://www.godandscience.org/cults/jesus.html
