Answer 1

There are various answers to this question:

  • To most, but not all Christians, Jesus is one with God, a member of the Holy Trinity
  • To Jews, Jesus was a preacher who lived in Palestine in the first century CE. Jews are strong monotheists, so the notion of Jesus as God is not acceptable.
  • To Muslims, Jesus was a great prophet, but not divine
  • To others, Jesus, if he existed at all, was a man who taught important moral values and after whose death a new religion was formed. They say there is no God.

Answer 2

No, Per Islam religion, Jesus is neither God nor son of God.

Quran says:

يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ لَا تَغْلُوا فِي دِينِكُمْ وَلَا تَقُولُوا عَلَى اللَّـهِ إِلَّا الْحَقَّ ۚ إِنَّمَا الْمَسِيحُ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولُ اللَّـهِ وَكَلِمَتُهُ أَلْقَاهَا إِلَىٰ مَرْيَمَ وَرُوحٌ مِّنْهُ ۖ فَآمِنُوا بِاللَّـهِ وَرُسُلِهِ ۖ وَلَا تَقُولُوا ثَلَاثَةٌ ۚ انتَهُوا خَيْرًا لَّكُمْ ۚ إِنَّمَا اللَّـهُ إِلَـٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ ۖ سُبْحَانَهُ أَن يَكُونَ لَهُ وَلَدٌ ۘ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ ۗ وَكَفَىٰ بِاللَّـهِ وَكِيلًا ﴿١٧١﴾

Meaning English translation:

{O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah (God) except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. (171)} [Quran, chapter 4, verse 171]

and says:

لَقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّـهَ هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ ۖ وَقَالَ الْمَسِيحُ يَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ اعْبُدُوا اللَّـهَ رَبِّي وَرَبَّكُمْ ۖ إِنَّهُ مَن يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّـهِ فَقَدْ حَرَّمَ اللَّـهُ عَلَيْهِ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَأْوَاهُ النَّارُ ۖ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنْ أَنصَارٍ ﴿٧٢﴾

{ They have certainly disbelieved who say, " Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary" while the Messiah has said, "O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Indeed, he who associates others with Allah - Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers. (72)}

[Quran, chapter 5, verse 72]

Jesus (peace be upon him) is believed as one of the greatest prophets and one of the greatest messengers of God to mankind. In the Quran, there is a complete chapter (or Surah) titled 'Maryam' (Mary) that confirms Maryam virgin birth. Jesus was born as miracle by the word and command of God. This command is, as said in Quran, the same command that had brought Adam into being with neither a father nor a mother. God has said in Quran:

{The case of Jesus with God is like the case of Adam. He created him from dust, and then He said to him, "Be!" and he came into being.} (Quran, chapter 3, verse 59)

Answer 3

Most modern Christians would equate Jesus with God, as one person of the Holy Trinity, however, this view evolved over the first four centuries of Christianity.

Mark's Gospel, the first of the four New Testament gospels, describes Jesus as human and has him deny being God, although God adopted him at the time of his baptism. The Gospels of Matthew and Luke, each in different ways, describe Jesus as being conceived by the Holy Spirit and therefore the son of God from conception, but still not God. John's Gospel describes Jesus as being with God at the moment of creation, and that he was God, but is unclear as to the exact relationship between Jesus and his Father.

It only remains for the Holy Trinity to resolve the issue of Jesus as God, while maintaining the essence of Christianity as a monotheistic religion. The concept of the Holy Trinity - three Gods in one - was debated in the third century and was adopted against fierce opposition at the fourth-century Council of Nicaea and finally made a mandatory belief by Emperor Theodosius at the end of the century.

Answer 4

Jesus is God's son.

Answer 5

One of the most well known scriptures of all time is John 3:16, where it says,"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."(King James Version)

So not only is Jesus the son of God, he is also the means of salvation. He provided his life as a ransom to provide a legal basis upon which those who exercise faith in him can gain everlasting life.

A free publication that may help you get greater understanding about Jesus is called "The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived," published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, and can be obtained without charge.

There is God whom created the heavens & Earth as portrayed in Genesis, but there is also his Son "the word" or "lord" as the OT puts it, & then in the NT is Jesus Christ. He was with his father in the beginning, & became flesh to dwell with mankind . He is separate from his father but he is the same as his father. He is not God of Genesis. It is like this....a married couple, they are "one" unit with keeping them as individuals as well. My husband is a part of me but with his own qualities as well. Makes sense? So otherwise Jesus is equal with God but not God himself. Please read up on the Hebrew literature & you will see a difference between God of the OT & Jesus.
