So, is Jesus God's son or what?

Reading some of the answers on Ask it seems as if Christians use God and Jesus interchangeably. So is God Jesus or is Jesus God and if so then why are Jews bound for hell what with them believing that it is Jesus and not God who is their savior?

IT IS WRITTEN:
John 3:16-17
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.

God is Jesus father and Jesus is Gods son. And if u add the holy spirit u get the trinity- father son and holy spirt. God sent the holy spirit upon Mary(the mother of Jesus) to impregnate her with Jesus ( Gods son). There will be all types of people in heaven. it will not matter what religion u are. what matters is where ur heart is with how u perceive God. No one is 100% correct or knows all the answers. We need to be good people and help one another. Those types of actions is what is going to get u into heaven!

We are saved by the Grace of God. Not by works.

But what about the part of my question about the Jews?
Report as
Yes I know that phrase is biblical. But I wasn't trying to get in depth with someone who doesn't understand how God and Jesus are related let alone try to explain what a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is. I know exactly where u are going with this. I appreciate ur words but I can't imagine that only certain people will be in heaven. I do not thing God is going to turn someone away from heaven because they never had the privilege or the knowledge of the grace of God. There are a lot of people who worship very differently but they all have one thing in common- a relationship with whom or whatever they choose as "GOD". It is ignorant to think that only "1" type of person will get into heaven. btw- in the bible it says- "by the grace of God and not good works alone"! Those are the people that will get into heaven. It doesn't say- "the grace of Jesus". God is whatever u think he/she is. I have a mother who very narrow minded! Narrow mindedness is a sickness! I'm sorry for u!

I'm sorry I do not know a lot about the Jews or how they believe. I do know there are two types of Jews, Masonic and non Masonic. One type believes in Jesus and the other doesn't.

They are One and Three simultaneously. (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) Think of Jesus as sort of Gods avatar on earth but one with independant free will. And orthodox Jews do NOT believe Jesus is Christ ir Messiah. They deny Jesus as Son of God. There are groups like Jews for Jesus who have awakened to the truth but in general the Jewish nation is blinded to the Truth because of their ongoing disobedience toward God throughout early history. He finally gave up on them.

Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but by Me"(John 14:6). The "no one" He referred to includes Jews and Gentiles. Jews are not saved because they are God's chosen people, but because they believe in Jesus Christ as their true Messiah. There are many Messianic Jews who have accepted Yeshua (the Hebrew word for "Jesus") as their Messiah.

Jesus was also a Jew by birth, in profession and upon death; lest you forgot! And the OT prophecy was of one Immanuel; not of Jesus, nor Yehshua!

People often have more than one name, as you yourself, does it say pious666 on your birth certificate. And no one calls me strawberry but here.

"People" and a "messiah" are not compatible. But, keeping that aside, Jesus was never mentioned as Immanuel even for once in all the volumes of OT & NT. How did you know Jesus' other name was Immanuel? Give me the scriptural reference please.
Report as
Pious, we all know that Jesus was no where referred to as the Immanuel in the OT. Straw knows it as well as we do.

In the prophecy of the virgin birth, Isaiah 7:14, the prophet Isaiah declared, "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call "All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 'The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel' which means, 'God with us.'"This does not mean, however, that the Messiah's name would actually be Immanuel.
There are many names given to Jesus using the phrase "He shall be called," both in the Old and New Testaments. This was a common way of saying that people would refer to Him in these various ways. Isaiah prophesied of the Messiah, "His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6). None of these titles was Jesus' actual name, but these were descriptions people would use to refer to Him forever. Luke tells us Jesus "shall be called the Son of the Highest" (Luke 1:32) and "son of God" (1:35) and "the prophet of the Highest" (1:76), but none of these was His name. In the same way, to say that Jesus would be called "Immanuel" means Jesus is God and that He dwelt among us in His incarnation and that He is always with us. Jesus was God in the flesh. Jesus was God making His dwelling among us (John 1:1,14). No, Jesus' name was not Immanuel, but Jesus was the meaning of Immanuel, "God with us." Immanuel is one of the many titles for Jesus, a description of who He is.http://www.gotquestions.org/Immanuel-Jesus.html

SBG: You are, unusually though, circular reasoning.
Report as
Straw, Isaiah 7:14 does not speak of a virgin birth and does not refer to Jesus. The word "virgin" does not exist anywhere in the Hebrew Bible. You have to read the entire chapter to get the full meaning. This prophecy is not to Jesus who was to be born hundreds of years later but to a child who was born in the time of King Ahaz.

Jesus is God's Son. Yet, Jesus, God and The Holy Spirit are One. They are 3 separate entities and yet, One. John 1:1-18 gives alot of good information about Jesus and God being One. Jon1:1 says, In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. vs.2: The same was in the beginning with God. vs.3: All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. vs.14: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,(and we heheld His gory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of Grace and Truth.

To quote God speaking about who Jesus is... "This is my beloved son with who I am well pleased" Math 3:17,12:18,17:5,Mark 1:11, Luke 1:11, 2 Peter 1:17. Consider the testimony of your creator, and the Gift of God Available to those who will only believe!!!
Come now let us reason together, no matter how deep the stain of your sins I can remove it. I can make you as clean as freshly fallen snow, If you will only stop turning away and refusing to listen. Paraphrased from somewhere in Isaiah.

Jesus was a man, the son of Mary and the Roman Legionnaire Panthera. He was God's son no more or no less than anyone else.

Jesus had no father.

Everyone has a father. They made up the fatherless story because Jesus was a momzer, after his mother committed adultery with Panthera and got knocked up.

I'd say evidence leans toward Jesus being a mythological character borrowing elements from Mythraism, Egyptian Horus beliefs, the Essene or Ebionite or Nazarene communities scattered around the Roman empire and assembled with state power beginning under Constantine.

Spot on. Green for you, sir. They made a "mythological shake" (like a milkshake) by borrowing from here and there, randomly from all the existing myths, added some deformed imaginary fables, imposed some lies and named it Christ! However, if I may, that is a lovely little angel you have with you.

No, i mean that the rest of the beings were created by both the efforts of Jehovah God and his son Jesus.

Did Jesus still created someone when he's living on earth? Or he took a break for that period from creating?

Im not sure if your being sincere or sarcastic lol. Jesus was created before humanity, and before the angels. He helped create the angels the earth, the galaxies, us and the animals..That is why the bible says he is God's firstborn. He was later transferred into Mary's womb centuries later, to guve his life for us.

Report as
That was not the question. It's as you said that all beings on earth were created by joint venture of Jehovah and Jesus, then, what about the creations while Jesus was on earth? Dis Jehovah alone created the beings all by himself in the period of Jesus' absence? By the way, will you like text from Torah or Koran against your claim that disproves the bible?

Could you fill me in on anything that was created after Jesus was born on earth?? I mean he was born on earth wayyy after all the beings on earth were created. The israelites we already an established civilization.. Jehovah doesnt continue to create to this day.. And if you'd like to show me a text, thats fine. It will not disprove the bible, nor will it change my mind, but feel free to show me what you'd like.
Report as
That's exactly why citing texts from the bible will not disprove the Torah & the Koran or change people's mind. And, no; I'll not cite any texts from anywhere since it'll bear no use. As for creation, what about all the people, animals, plants, viruses, bacterias that were created while Jesus was on earth? Jesus couldn't have been there during those creation in serene heaven (whatever that is) while he was on earth, could he? Do you find it contradicting to say, that no one created god because god need not be created; while on the other hand, you claim that jesus was created and who is supposedly a god himself in trinity? If Jesus, being a god, had to be created, isn't it only obvious to logically question that "who created "father the god" that created "son the god"?
Report as
Oddplatano
Im sorry, not trying to be rude, but you arent making any sense. There eas absolutely NO creation taking place by the time Jesus made it to earth. All the creating had been done in the beginning, before the time of adam and eve. Second, I'm not sure what religion you think i pertain to, but the trinity is not supported biblically at all, so i don't believe in it. So this contradiction, isn't valid in my eyes.

Here is a quote by a very wise man, John of Damascus, circa 760 AD/ CE:
"We do not know--nor can we tell--what the essence of God is; or how it is that it should be in all; or how the Only-Begotten Son and God, having emptied Himself, became Man, born of virgin blood and made by another law contrary to nature; or even how He walked with dry feet upon the waters. It is not within our capacity, therefore, to say anything about God, or even to think of him--beyond those things which have been divinely revealed to us, whether by word, or by manifestations, or by the divine oracles at once of the Old Testament and the New." What this rather confusing quote is saying is that the Trinity, and most especially the Godhood of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ IS very confusing, so much so as to be beyond our true understanding. So, the short answer to your question is, yes, Jesus IS God, and God is Jesus. Are you as confused as I am? But that's OK, my friend, you simply have to take it all on Faith.

How about I quote you an early Christian champion, namely the Pope Boniface Vlll (1294), the Christian god's (Jesus') supposed vicar on earth; read: "The gospel also...teach several virtues and several lies; for example, a trinity - which is false, the child birth of a virgin - which is impossible, and the incarnation and transubstantiation - which are ridiculous. I do not believe", continued he, "other than that the virgin was a she-ass, and her son the issue of a she-ass". I surely know infinitely less (almost minuscule) on Christian theology than its "semi-divine" pope above, but I find him absolutely honest in his above statement; don't you?

I agree with what you said except for the virgin part. Mary was indeed a virgin when she gave birth to Jesus.
