Divinity of Jesus

One has claimed: “In any case the divinity of Jesus is written all over the New Testament. What concerns me is why you are so anxious to deny it.”

Of course, we are not anxious to deny the divinity of Jesus.  It is the assumption of most trinitarians that all who deny the trinity, or any who do not believe that jesus is Yahweh, is also denying the divinity of Jesus. We do deny that Jesus is his God, Yahweh.

The divine nature of Jesus as revealed in the scriptures is the same divine nature to which his followers are called upon to become partakers of. — 2 Peter 1:4.

Many, however, would like to  add to the scriptures the equation that “divine nature” means “Supreme Being.”

Nevertheless, Jesus indeed could now be called a divine being — a mighty being, but his being such does not mean that he is the Supreme Being. The only true Supreme Being (John 17:3) has exalted Jesus as a divine being, a spiritual being, even much higher than the angels, who are also divine (mighty) beings. God has given to Jesus the plentitude (pleroma) of mightiness (theotes) in his spiritual body that he might be able to fulfill the great power and authority that the only true Supreme Being has given to Jesus. — Psalm 8:5; Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 1:3,17,20,21; Colossians 2:9,10; Hebrews 1:4; 2:7.
