Yeshua: Divine, Diety or Dud?
Q: Is Yeshua diety?
A: Yes, Yeshua is deity.
Matthew 1:18b After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.
He was born of the Ruach Ha Kodesh, and therefore must be fully God.
Twice in the account of Matthew we read of God the Father speaking of Yeshua and saying, “This is my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” There is no place else in Scripture where anyone is referred to by God as His beloved son.
Additionally, there is only one entity who can forgive us our sins. That is God. That is the Hebraic understanding throughout the Tanakh as well. That’s nothing new. In Mark 2:6-7, we even see that it was the understanding during Yeshua’s time. “And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, ‘Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?’” And yet, in the story of the paralytic, which is told in Matthew 9, Mark 2, and Luke 5, it is perfectly clear that Yeshua had the ability to forgive sins. The account from Matthew 9:2-6 reads, “Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, ‘Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.’ And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, ‘This Man blasphemes!’ But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, ‘Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, “Your sins are forgiven you,” or to say, “Arise and walk”? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins’–then He said to the paralytic, ‘Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.’”
The only way this could be possible is if Yeshua were, Himself, God.
