Jesus Christ is eternal God. As a member of the trinity, He is coequal with God the Father and with God the Holy Spirit. That is, He has the same attributes as God the Father. See the Grace Notes topic: Essence of God) Jesus Christ has all of the divine attributes that God the Father has, including:

  • Eternity – Isa. 9:6; Micah 5:2; John 1:1,2; 8:58.
  • Immutability – Heb. 1:10-12, (cf. Mal. 3:6 and Ps. 102:25-27); Heb. 13:8
  • Omnipotence – Phil. 3:21; Rev. 1:8; I Cor. 15:25
  • Omniscience – John 2:25; 6:64; 10:15; 21:17.
  • Omnipresence – Eph. 1:23; John 14:23 (cf. Lev. 26:12); Mt. 18:20;
  • Life – John 1:4; 5:26; 10:10; 14:6; Heb. 7:16.
  • Truth – John 14:6; Rev. 3:7
  • Righteousness – John 6:69; Heb. 7:26

In addition, the prerogatives of deity are ascribed to Jesus Christ:

  • He pardons sins, Luke 5:24; Col. 3:13.
  • He raised the dead and He will raise the dead, 2 Cor. 1:9; John 5:21, 28,29; 11:25
  • He rewards the saints, 2 Cor. 5:10
  • The judgment of the world is committed to Him, John 5:22; Rev. 20:12
  • worship belonging only to God is freely rendered to Christ: 1 Cor. 1:2; John 14:13,14.
