Jesus IS God


Greek & Hebrew

June 8, 2010

Dear Nenita:

You asked me if I would share with you key passages in the Bible which clearly indicate that Jesus is God. Let us start with:

Deuteronomy 6:4 "Hear Israel! Yehovah our-Elohim, Yehovah is one!"

.dj;a, hw:hy Wnyhela> hw:hy laer;c]yI [m'v] 6:4
  achod Yehovah Elohenu  Yehovah    Israel     Shemah
one is Yehovah our-Elohim Yehovah Israel       Hear


There are many terms in the Old Testament for God in the Bible:

  • El lae singular (First used in Genesis 35:1, Strongs 410)

  • Elohim !yhiloa> singular-plural (most used term for God): a singular plural (I will explain) (First used in Genesis 1:1 and Deuteronomy 6:4, Strongs 430)

  • Eloah H'/la>, H'loa> singular (First used in Deuteronomy 32:15-17, Strongs 433)

  • Elah Hl;a>, a;hl;a> singular (Aramaic, First used in Ezra 4:24 & in the Book of Daniel, Strongs 426)

God's Primary Name:

  • Yehovah h/:hyÒ Yehovah, German pronunciation Jehovah. This is the proper eternal forever name of the one and only true God given to Moses by God on Mt. Siani, Exodus 3:14, meaning I Am that I Am, the existing One, (First used in Genesis 2:4, Strongs 3068)

The name of God we want to focus on here is Elohim. The most used Term for God in the Old Testament is Elohim used more than 2,600 times when referring to God and is the term used for God in Genesis 1:1 and Deuteronomy 6:4. Elohim is a compound word of El meaning "God" and "him" which is a masculine plural suffix meaning "These". Together they mean "These are God". This is used in Genesis 1:1 "In-the-beginning Elohim created the heavens and the-earth." The verb "created" (barah, arB) is 3rd person masculine singular "he-created". In Hebrew a singular subject-noun is always followed by a singular verb. This makes Elohim a singular-plural. When Elohim is plural in the Bible it means "gods" and is always followed by a plural verb. However, in the case of Genesis 1:1 it is followed by a singular verb "he-created" making it a singular-plural noun meaning "These-are-God". This is not my interpretation of this word but of Jewish scholars. Right here in the first verse of the Bible Moses indicates the Triune Nature of the One God in the Bible. This is further made clear by Moses in,

Genesis 1:26-27 "And Elohim said ‘Let-us-make man in our-image, according-to-our-likeness. . . . And Elohim created man in His-image, in-the image of Elohim He-created him; male and female He-created them."

Note the singular verb here "He-created" again making Elohim a singular-plural. Also note the "us" and "our" statements of God. God is one God of one essence consisting of three Persons: the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Note that it says that man is created in God’s image. This means many things, primarily referring to the moral righteousness of God: Ephesians 4:24 "And put on the new man, down-from God which has-been-created in righteousness and holiness of the truth." It also means that like God man has intellect, emotions and will, but it also means that man, not the same as God but similar to God, is one Man of one essence but also a trinity consisting of spirit and soul and body. The Apostle Paul and John wrote:

1 Thessalonians 5:23 "Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit (pneuma) and soul (psuche) and body (soma) be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

1 Corinthians 2:14-15 "But a man who is motivated-and-controlled-through-his-soul (psuchikos) does not accept the things of the Spirit (pneuma) of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are discerned through the spirit (pneuma). But he who is motivated-and-controlled-through-his-spirit (pneumatikos) discerns all things, yet he himself is discerned by no man."

The Apostle John talks about the three kinds of life one Man has in 1 John 3:14-17,

1 John 3:14-17 "We know that we have passed out of spiritual-death into spiritual-life (Zoe), because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in spiritual-death. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal spiritual-life (Zoe) abiding in him. We know love by this, that He laid down His soul (psuche) for us; and we ought to lay down our souls for the brethren. But whoever has the biological-means-of-life (Bio), and beholds his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?

John tells us in this passage that man has three kinds of life: spiritual, soulish and physical. One Man of one essence is spirit (Pneuma, Zoe) and soul (Psuche) and body (Soma, Bio). One Man is not spirit, is not soul, is not body; one Man of one essence is a trinity of spirit and soul and body. The one and only True God of the Bible of one essence is not Father, is not Son, is not Holy Spirit; the one God of of the Bible of one essence is a Trinity of Father and Son and Holy Spirit.

Deuteronomy 6:4 states "Hear Israel! Yehovah our-Elohim, Yehovah is one!" Note that here Moses uses Elohim for our one God again indicating that the one God he is referring to is a Trinity of Father and Son and Holy Spirit. Moses also uses El, singular, for God many times in the Torah. For example in Genesis 35:1. It states "Then Elohim said to Jacob, ‘Arise, go up to Bethel, and live there; and make an altar there to El, who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau.’" Note that this verse uses both Elohim and El. When referring to the Trinity it uses Elohim, but when referring to Jesus it uses El. Now why do I say it refers to Jesus? John 1:18 states about Jesus "No one has seen God at any time; the only-begotten God, who is in the bosom of the Father, that one has revealed Him." The Bible teaches in John 4:23-24 that God is spirit. No one on this side of heaven has ever seen the Father. Whenever God appeared to Moses, Abraham, Jacob and others in the Old Testament it was Jesus appearing to them in human form. For example when God came walking into the garden after Adam and Eve sinned: this was Jesus. No one has seen God the Father at any time, the only begotton God, Jesus, has revealed Him. Whenever God makes a physical appearance in the Old Testament it is Jesus making this appearance. We call this a theophany. However, in Deuteronomy 6:4 Moses uses Elohim indicating the Triune nature of the one God who is of one essence:

Deuteronomy 6:4 states "Hear Israel! Yehovah our-Elohim, Yehovah is one!"

.dj;a, hw:hy Wnyhela> hw:hy laer;c]yI [m'v] 6:4
  achod Yehovah Elohenu  Yehovah    Israel     Shemah
one is Yehovah our-Elohim Yehovah Israel       Hear


The Hebrew term for one, achad dja, means of one essence.

Do I understand this, how God can be Father and Son and Holy Spirit but one God of one Essence? Not anymore than how a man can be spirit and soul and body but one Man of one essence. Moses wrote in,

Deuteronomy 29:29 (29:28) "The secret things belong to Yehovah-our-Elohim, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law."

The term for God Elohim is used in Hebrews 1:8 God the Father states concerning the Son "But of the Son He says, ‘Your throne, Elohim, is forever and ever, and the righteous scepter is the scepter of Your kingdom.’" This is a direct quote from Psalm 45:6 referring to God. God the Father declares that Jesus is Elohim and thus Yehovah, that He is God, the same God Moses talked about in Genesis 1:1 when he said in Genesis 1:1 "In-the-beginning Elohim created the heavens and the-earth." Jesus is our Creator as well as Savior and Lord and God. The Apostle Thomas stated about Jesus in John 20:28 "Thomas answered and said to Him, ‘My Lord and my God!’".

A passage in the Old Testament which shows that both the Father and the Son are Yehovah is Genesis 19:24 "Then Yehovah rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from Yehovah out of heaven."

Note it says Yehovah on earth (Jesus appearing in physical form) rained fire from Yehovah (the Father) in heaven. The Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit make up the one God Yehovah. Yehovah Jesus rained brimstone and fire from Yehovah Father in Heaven.

God speaking through Isaiah 43:10-11 states "‘You are My witnesses,’ declares Yehovah, ‘And My servant whom I have chosen, in order that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no El formed, and there will be none after Me. I, even I, am Yehovah; and there is no Savior besides Me.’"

In this passage God tells us many things about Himself:

  1. There is only one God.

  2. There was no God formed before Him and there will be no God formed after Him, that He and He alone is God.

  3. There is no Savior besides Him.

God tells us that He and He alone is Savior. Matthew 1:21-23 tells us the following about Jesus,

Matthew 1:21-23 "‘And she will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.’ Now all this took place that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel," which translated means, "God with us."’"

In Matthew 1:18 the angel tells Joseph, Mary’s husband, that she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit, not by man’s seed. The angel then tells Joseph that he is to name the baby Jesus because He the baby will save us from our sins. To understand what the Angel is doing here, first, we need to know what the name Jesus means. Jesus is the Hebrew word Yeshua. Yeshua is a compound Hebrew word meaning "Yehovah is Savior". This confirms what Yehovah said through Isaiah in Isaiah 43:10-11 that He and He alone is Savior. But why does the angel tell Joseph to name the baby Jesus? In order to reveal the true identity of the baby Jesus. Yehovah tells us that only He is Savior and the angel tells Joseph to name the baby Jesus because HE the baby Jesus will save us from our sins thus indicating who Jesus is: Yehovah the only true God in the flesh. Paul affirms this in Colossians 2:9 "For in Him all the fulness of Deity dwells in bodily form." Paul tells us that Jesus is not a man possessed by God but God in bodily form. Jesus is God in bodily-form. Old Testament passages which confirm this are the following:

Micah 5:2 "But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, from the days of eternity."

God’s Word in Micah 5:2 tells us that Jesus is from eternity past which means He had no beginning, that He is an eternal being who was not created. Yehovah God in Isaiah 43:10-11 claims this exclusively for Himself. He stated that there was no God formed before Him. God declares that the Messiah Jesus is from eternity past to let us know that Jesus is Him in bodily form. In Isaiah 9:6 God tells us the following about the Messiah:

Isaiah 9:6 "For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty-El, Father-of-Eternity, Prince-of-Peace."

in Colossians 2:9 God's word tells us about the Messiah that He will be Himself in bodily form confirms what he said in Isaiah 43:10-11 that He and He alone is from eternity past, the Father-of-Eternity thus declaring that the Messiah will be Himself in bodily form.

One time while sharing the Gospel with a Muslim on the field, he said to me "Many people are named Jesus." He said "For example Isaiah, the Prophet, his name is Yeshua." I said to him in reply,

"Isaiah is not Yeshua, [Wvwhy. but Yashayah, hy[vy. And Isaiah means 'The-Salvation-of-Yah.' Yah is short for Yehovah. Jesus means 'Yehovah is Salvation'. While many people are named Jesus only to the baby did the angel tell Joseph to name Him Jesus because He the baby will save us from our sins and thus indicting the nature of the baby which is Yehovah-Elohim Himself, the God of the Old Testament, in the flesh saving us from our sins."

God also tells us in Isaiah 44:24 "I, Yehovah, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself, and spreading out the earth all alone." Yehovah tells us that He created all of creation by Himself all alone without help by or though anyone else. The Bible states about Jesus in John 1:3 "All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being." Yehovah God declares in Isaiah 44:24 that He created all of creation by Himself all alone and John 1:3 states that nothing came into being except through Jesus, thus declaring Jesus Yehovah-Elohim, God in bodily-form.

Jesus is God because no one existed before Him and God declared no one existed before Him (Isaiah 9:6, 43:10-11; Micah 5:2)

While Jesus' divinity had no beginning, His humanity did. The Bible tells us that Jesus' humanity was created and conceived of by the Holy Spirit (Romans 1:3-4, Luke 1:35), which is all rapped up in what is necessary for our salvation, and Luke tells us that this is why Jesus the Man is called the Son-of-God.

Luke 1:35 "And the angel answered and said to her, 'The Holy-Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most-High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy offspring shall be called the Son-of-God.'"

While Jesus as God had no beginning His humanity in time did.

Jesus is God because He is Savior and the Bible states no one is Savior but God alone (Isaiah 43:10-11, Matthew 1:21-23)

Jesus is God because all things were created through Him and God claimed He created all things by Himself all alone in Isaiah 43:10-11 and Isaiah 44:24. God is Creator and the Bible states no one existed before Him, that He is not created, that nothing came into being except through Him and God states plainly He created everything by Himself all alone and that nothing came into being except through Him and thus declaring Himself the only true God. Therefore, for Jesus to claim anything was created through Him is for Him to claim to be the only True God. (Isaiah 44:24, Genesis 1:1; John 1:3, 8:58; Hebrews 1:8)

Jesus claimed in John 8:58 "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born I AM", the name and meaning of Yehovah. I AM , Ego Eimee is the Greek Septuagint formula used in Exodus 3:14 for Yehovah. In Greek Ego means "I" and Eimee by itself means "I am". However, when the 70 Hebrew translators (70 the meaning of Septuagint) came to the name Yehovah in Exodus 3:14 they didn't just use Eimee meaning by itself "I am" but Ego Eimee to emphasize it was referring to God's sacred eternal name Yehovah. The Apostle John did the same thing in the Gospel of John when referring to the sacred eternal name of God Yehovah. When referring to the name Yehovah John used the Greek Septuagint formula Ego Eimee. Thus, when Jesus said in John 8:58 "Before Abraham was born, I AM" what He was really say was "Before Abraham was born, I am Yehovah." Jesus then said in John 8:24 "I said therefore to you, that you shall die in your sins; for unless you believe that I AM, you shall die in your sins." Jesus said plainly that His being God in the flesh was not up for debate.

The God of the Old Testament, Yehovah, tells us how to know who the true God truly is. In Deuteronomy 18 God tells us that His signature to who He truly is, is that He tells us future events and they come to pass to the letter without error.

Deuteronomy 18:20-22 "But the prophet who shall speak a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he shall speak in the name of other els, that prophet shall die. And you may say in your heart, ‘How shall we know the word which Yehovah has not spoken?’ When a prophet speaks in the name of Yehovah, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which Yehovah has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him."

Again in Amos 3:7 "For Adonai Yehovah will do nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets." and in Isaiah 46:9-10,

Isaiah 46:9-10 "For I am El, and there are no other Els, there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things which have not been done, saying, ‘My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure’."

Yehovah's signature about who He truly is, who his true prophets are and what is His only true book the Bible, is prophesying about future events and their coming to pass to the letter. Jesus said to His Apostles in John 13:19 "From now on I am telling you before it comes to pass, so that when it does occur, you may believe that I AM," again using the Greek Septuagint formula for Yehovah: Ego Eimee. Jesus told His disciples that He was fortelling future events so that when they came to pass that they would know and believe that He is Yehovah-Elohim, the God of the Old Testament, in the flesh. This is how we Know that Jesus is Yehovah Elohim, the God of the Old Testament, our Creator and Savior in the flesh.

People today will tell you that a prophet in the Old Testament was someone who taught the Israelites the Torah. However, if you look up the word prophet in any concordance of the Bible, wherever the word prophet is used in the Bible, whether in the Old or New Testament, it is always used in conjunction with them prophesying from Yehovah future events that will take place. A true Prophet of Yehovah is one who prophesies concerning future events and they come to pass to the letter. You study the books of other religions and you will not find prophesies concerning future evens. God does not have His approval or signature stamped on their books. However, the Bible contains 1,817 prophesies of future events covering 732 subjects within 8,352 verses of the Bible, 27% of the total 31,124 verses in the Bible. More than 4/5 of these prophesies have already been fulfilled, some amazing ones in our day. These amazing prophecies fulfilled in our day are documented in our movie What it Means to Trust in God.

Sincerely in Jesus,

*Greek & Hebrew

hwhy Yehovah, German pronunciation Jehovah. This is the proper eternal forever name of the one and only true God given to Moses by God on Mt. Siani, Exodus 3:14, meaning I Am that I Am, the existing One, 3068; from hyh to be, exist, 1961. God says of this name of His in Exodus 3:15 "This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations;" Thus why when Yehovah in time in addition to His Divine nature took on a human nature the angel named him Yeshua, H3091 and G2424, which means Yehovah is Savior because as the angel said to Joseph in Matthew 1:21 "For it is He who will save His people from their sins." In early Jewish history, Jewish Myth decided saying God’s name was too sacred, Titus 1:13-14. Therefore when reading the Hebrew text they would substitute hwhy Yehovah with ynda Adonai meaning my-Lord, 136. As a result, later when Masoretic scholars began to supply vowel points to the Hebrew Masoretic Text, they applied the vowels of ynda Adonai to the consonants of hwhy resulting in the pronunciation of Yehovah, thus why this translator chooses to translate it Yehovah based on the Masoretic text so as not to lose the meaning of the text to the English reader, and to distinguish it from Adonai meaning Lord and Elohim meaning God. The Hebrew grammarian Page H. Kelley explains regarding this "If there had been no need to avoid pronouncing hwhy, it would most likely have been pointed hwhy and thus read as Yãhvìh. The curious attempt to transliterate the hybrid form hwhy as ‘Yehovah’ (or ‘Jehovah,’ since ‘y’ was missing in the German language) was not made until the time of the Protestant Reformation." Many times in the Hebrew text the divine names hwhy ynda appear together meaning Adonai-Yehovah, 136a, Gen 15:2. Since in the Masoretic text it would be awkward to pronounce them together as Adonai-Adonai, Masoretic scholars chose to point hwhy Yehovah with the vowels of !yhla Elohim, 430. This results in the form hwhy Yehovah, later simplified to hwhy meant to be pronounced as Elohim. This is why translators in the modern english versions translate, incorrectly and thus lose the meaning of the text, Yehovah as LORD when in the Adonai form and as GOD when in the Elohim form, and why they translate hwhy ynda Adonai Yehovah as Lord GOD. In the Greek Septuagint and in the N.T. Yehovah is expressed: Ejgwv Eijmi Ego Eimee meaning I Am, 1473a, to signify God’s name Yehovah since egwv by itself means I-am. Jesus often used this expression referring to Himself as Yehovah: John 8:24, 8:58, 13:19. From Egwv I, 1473, & Eimiv to be, to exist, 1510. 1/171, 2/114, 118; 42/CD; 26/CD; 28/CD; 31/CD; 37/CD; 254/32.

Hy Yah the shortened form of God’s name Yehovah. God’s name, 3050; contraction for h/hy, 3068, and meaning the same. Psalm 68:4. 1/171, 5/532, 31/CD, 37/CD, 42/CD.

la El meaning: God, the one true God: Yehovah, 3068; God the mighty one, strong; mighty men, men of rank, mighty heroes; angels; god, false god, demons, imaginations; mighty things in nature; strength, power. First used in Genesis 14:18, this word has cognate forms in other Semitic tongues, and is the general term for God in the widest sense, true or false, or even an image treated as a god as in Gen 35:2, "Put away the foreign els which are among you". Because of this general character it is frequently associated with a defining adjective or predicate. For example, in Deut 5:9 we read, "I Yehovah your-Elohim am a jealous El," or in Genesis 31:13, "the El of Bethel". Noun: masculine, 410; shortened from lya, 352. Gen 35:1. 1/12, 5/411/2, 32/CD; 31/CD, 37/CD, 42/CD.

!yhla Elohim is a singular plural, Deut 6:4, universal term for God in Genesis meaning: These-are-El, These-are-God. Rabbi Bechai, in his commentary on Genesis 1:1 (p. 1, col. 2) explained that the word Elohim !yhla is compounded of two words, !h and la, that is, "These are God," thus indicating the Triune nature of God. The plural is expressed by the letter yod ( y ). Gen 1:26 "Elohim said ‘Let-us-make man in our-image.’" Man’s creation involved all three members of the Godhead: the Father, Exodus 20:11, the Son, Colossians 1:16, and the Holy Spirit, Job 26:13. Elohim is also used when referring to pagan gods, Exodus 34:17, and the leaders of Israel, Psalm 82:6, John 10:34-35. Used over 2,300 times in reference to the only true God. Though in plural form, Elohim, like in Genesis 1:1, is treated as a singular noun, followed by a singular verb arB He-created in which is the first indication of the Triune nature of God in the Bible. It is not referring to 3 individual gods meaning 1 + 1 + 1 = 3 gods as is taught in Mormonism; but of one God of one essence manifested in three persons that are 1 x 1 x 1 = 1 God; thus why it is used in Deuteronomy 6:4 "Hear, Israel! Yehovah our-Elohim, Yehovah is One!" It refers to the supreme deity, and in English versions of the Bible is inadequately rendered "God". Like its English equivalent, it is, grammatically considered, a common noun, and conveys the notion of all that belongs to the concept of deity, in contrast with man (Num 23:19) and other created beings. It is appropriate to cosmic and world-wide relationships because there is only one supreme and true God, and he is a Person; it approaches the character of a proper noun, while not losing its abstract and conceptual quality. In the first two chapters of Genesis Elohim occurs 35 times in connection with God’s creative power. Elohim is found most frequently in Deuteronomy and Psalms. It is found 26 times in Psalm 68 and practically covers all aspects of salvation. Noun: masculine singular plural, 430; plural of Hwla, 433. 1/28, 26; 32/CD; 5/412/4; 31/CD, 37/CD, 42/CD, 58/99.

yhla Elohim-of. Noun: masculine plural construct, 430c; of !yhla, 430. Amos 4:13. 1/28, 31/CD, 37/CD, 42/CD.

Hwla, Hla Eloah meaning: God, object of worship, false god. Eloah signifies The Adorable or Worshipful One. There are about 60 occurrences of this particular name, the first of which is in Deuteronomy 32:15-17. Eloah is the plural form of Elohim. Eloah is characteristic of the Book of job, being used more often here, some 41 times, than elsewhere in the Old Testament. Generally, this distinctive divine name stands for the nature and expression of the only living and true God, the object of all testimony and worship. Noun: masculine singular, 433; probably prolonged (emphat.) from lae, 410. Deut 32:15-17. 1/28, 26; 5/418/5; 31/CD, 37/CD, 42/CD, 73/8-9.

Hla Elah Aramaic term for God meaning: to worship, to adore. Aramaic universal name for God or god which Daniel and Ezra used when talking about the God of the universe in the books of Daniel and Ezra to the Babylonians and Persians. The term is also applied to false gods or idols and to angels in Hebrew texts, Jer 10:11. The first occurrence of Elah is in Ezra 4:24 where it is used in connection with the work of rebuilding "the house of Elah". This divine title occurs some 90 times in the Old Testament: 43 times in Ezra, 46 times in Daniel, and once in Jeremiah 10:10. Elah indicates that the living and true God is identified with His people in captivity. We read of Daniel that, "He believed in his Elah" (6:23), and his prophecy strikingly illustrates the prophet’s faith in God as Elah. The word Elah means an Oak – the tree symbolizing durability – a virtue characteristic of Him who is, everlasting, and extolled in Scripture as "The Everlasting God." Elah is the Chaldee form of Eloah, 433, which is known as a verbal noun, and is associated with the Hebrew verb alah, meaning to fear, to worship, to adore. The Adorable One. Aramaic Proper Noun: masculine singular, 426; corresponding to Hwla, 433. Dan 2:18. 1/26, 5/411/3, 31/CD, 37/CD, 42/CD, 73/8.

ahla Elah an Aramaic term for God. Noun: Aramaic masculine singular, 426b; of Hla, 426. Daniel 2:20, Matt 27:46. 31/CD, 37/CD.

Matthew 1:21. 2/200, 5/541, 28/CD, 31/CD, 37/CD.
