These scripture help remind me that Jesus says that He is God because He keeps on saying He is God. He says that He is the Messiah, the Son of Man, and the Son of God. These are all well known religious terms in the Jewish religion for the one and only God. Jesus is saying that He is truly the one and only God who became a human, Immanuel, God with us. The only question to ask is whether I believe Him or is He lying?
Luke 22:63-70 (CEV)
63The men who were guarding Jesus made fun of him and beat him. 64They put a blindfold on him and said, “Tell us who struck you!” 65They kept on insulting Jesus in many other ways.
66At daybreak the nation’s leaders, the chief priests, and the teachers of the Law of Moses got together and brought Jesus before their council. 67They said, “Tell us! Are you the Messiah?”
Jesus replied, “If I said so, you wouldn’t believe me. 68And if I asked you a question, you wouldn’t answer. 69But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right side of God All-Powerful.”
64. 그의 눈을 가리고 물어 이르되 선지자 노릇 하라 너를 친 자가 누구냐 하고
65. 이 외에도 많은 말로 욕하더라
- 날이 새매 백성의 장로들 곧 대제사장들과 서기관들이 모여서 예수를 그 공회로 끌어들여
- 이르되 네가 그리스도이거든 우리에게 말하라 대답하시되 내가 말할지라도 너희가 믿지 아니할 것이요
- 내가 물어도 너희가 대답하지 아니할 것이니라
- 그러나 이제부터는 인자가 하나님의 권능의 우편에 앉아 있으리라 하시니
- 다 이르되 그러면 네가 하나님의 아들이냐 대답하시되 너희들이 내가 그라고 말하고 있느니라
Luke 22:63-70 (The Message)
63-65The men in charge of Jesus began poking fun at him, slapping him around. They put a blindfold on him and taunted, “Who hit you that time?” They were having a grand time with him.
66-67When it was morning, the religious leaders of the people and the high priests and scholars all got together and brought him before their High Council. They said, “Are you the Messiah?”
67-69He answered, “If I said yes, you wouldn’t believe me. If I asked what you meant by your question, you wouldn’t answer me. So here’s what I have to say: From here on the Son of Man takes his place at God’s right hand, the place of power.”
70They all said, “So you admit your claim to be the Son of God?”
”You’re the ones who keep saying it,” he said.
