Because the scripture says that Jesus said "I and the Father (God) am one...if you have seen me, you have seen the Father". Also, Jesus in the "Word" of God, and there can be no appreciable difference between the One and the Word of the One. Also, it says that Jesus was the "exact representation of his (God's) nature".
For Jesus is the exact representation of Yahweh God. Heb 1:8; But to the Son he (God) said: Your throne God is forever & ever. & v9; This is why God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness.....
He was the servant of all and yet He was the greatest among them all. The Bible says for us to strive to be like Christ. So in that same way, we are to serve. To submit to authority. To be humble and to love our fellowman, despite how much our own ego may cry out to be seen as the best. Indeed, we may in fact be leaders, but servant leaders. And as servant leaders, we must strive to be last in the kingdom and allow our actions to speak louder than our words as we strive to help others who are in need.
I feel God gave his son Jesus to everyone so that our sin will be forgiven. Threw Jesus is our only way to heaven. All we have to do is ask for forgiveness of our sin and to me that's the greatest gift of all!
That's a good question. The Bible never e says that Jesus is the greatest. In fact, Jesus himself said that as well! At John 14:28 it says, "the Father is greater than I am." Clearly God, the Father, is greater than his son, Jesus Christ.
Sooo...firstly God and Christ are One, separate and One simultaeously. Secondly, i dont know any Christ follower who places Christ above God. Its just naturally known and assumed God is Ultimate. Jesus is Greatest above all else, tho. There is nothing else in the universe greater that Christ other than God.
