Did Jesus say “I am God” or “Worship me”?

Sunday, October 30, 2016

Here are some verses that state that Jesus Christ is God and though He never said worship me He accepted worship from the people that He healed. Unlike The prophets or angel’s who always refused worship and told the people to worship God.

Joh 10:25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believe not: the works that I do in my Father's name, these bear witness of me.

Joh 10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep.

Joh 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Joh 10:28 and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand.

Joh 10:29 My Father, who hath given them unto me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.

Joh 10:30 I and the Father are one.

Joh 10:31 The Jews took up stones again to stone him.

Joh 10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from the Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

Joh 10:33 The Jews answered him, For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

Scripture refers to Jesus as God, here are a few:

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

Joh 1:3 All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that hath been made.

Joh 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth.

Joh 1:15 John beareth witness of him, and crieth, saying, This was he of whom I said, He that cometh after me is become before me: for he was before me.

Joh 1:16 For of his fullness we all received, and grace for grace.

Joh 1:17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

Heb 1:8 but of the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; And the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of thy kingdom.

Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee With the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Heb 1:10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning didst lay the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the works of thy hands:

Here are some verses show Jesus receiving worship:

Mat 8:2 And behold, there came to him a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Mat 9:18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.

Mat 14:33 And they that were in the boat worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

Mat 15:25 But she came and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

Mat 28:9 And behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and took hold of his feet, and worshipped him.

Mat 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted.

Mar 5:6 And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshipped him;

Luk 24:52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

Joh 9:38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him

So we can see from scripture that Jesus is clearly referred to as God as well as man. Did Jesus say "worship me"? I know of no verses in which Jesus say’s to worship Him, what I do see however is that Jesus received worship and people bowed down before Him approximately ten times in scripture.

No other prophet or angel received worship in scripture and when people attempted to worship them or bow down before them they always stopped them and told them not to worship them but God alone, there is not one verse in which Jesus rebuked or told anyone to not worship Him.
