What's in a Title? A Look at the Father & Son

 Why does Jesus possess God's titles?

 JESUS: I AM

Jn 8:24,28,58 "igo Eimi" which translates "I AM"

  GOD The Father : I AM

Ex 3:13-16 "igo Eimi" which translates "I AM"

For Christ to say 'I AM' is to demonstrate that he has no beginning and no end...just as God uttered this in Ex 3:13-16. By this statement Christ is actually identifying His nature and who He is.

 

  JESUS: MIGHTY GOD

Isa 9:6 For us a child is born...and he shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God...

2 Pet 1:1 ...righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ

Titus 2:13 ...while we wait for the blessed hope - the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ

 GOD The Father: MIGHTY GOD

Isa 10:21 A remnant will return, a remnant of Jacob will return to the Mighty God.

Rev 19:6 Hallelujah! For our Lord God almighty reigns.

How many mighty God's are there? Remember God says 'Do not have any other God's before me..'

 

 JESUS: IMMANUEL

Matt 1:23 (Immanuel) God with us

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Isaiah 9:6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

GOD the Father: THE LORD WILL DWELL WITH US

Ezekiel 37:27 My dwelling place shall be with them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

 

Zechariah 2:10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for lo, I come and I will dwell in the midst of you, says the LORD(Jehovah).

 JESUS: EVERLASTING FATHER

Is 9:6 Jesus is the Everlasting Father

GOD: FATHER
