Christ’s deity is on display throughout the book of John. Whether it is Christ reflecting His deity through knowledge or actions, it is repeatedly shown in the book of John. “Thus, John holds in admirable balance Jesus’s humanity and deity” [1]. Jesus as deity is shown in the I AM statements. The book of John puts emphasis on Jesus’ perfect humanity. Christ’s Deity Displayed Throughout Christ’s ministry His deity is displayed. Jesus’ deity is displayed in a super natural way “one might also call this “divine omniscience’” [2]. John shows through His gospel different instances which Christ shows this “divine omniscience” [2]. Jesus speaks of Himself as the Son of Man. “The phrase appears eighty-one times in the Gospels and is used only by Jesus” [3]. This phrase reminds us of Christ’s perfect humanity, but also His deity while still on earth.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
