The doctrine of the deity of Lord Jesus Christ is the keystone of our Christian faith. Without this great truth all else is compromised. Christianity is not simply a religion, a philosophy, an ethical code or a creed—it is Christ!

Despite attempts to separate the “Jesus of history” from the “Jesus of Christian faith,” the incontrovertible evidence of the unique, well-authenticated documents of Scripture is that the Eternal Word became flesh and lived among men on planet Earth (cf John1:14;1 Tim. 3:16).

The only way to deny the truth of our Lord’s deity is to discredit the Biblical documents upon which it is based. “A man need not be a believer to admit that in asserting Christ’s deity we make a fair translation of the Gospel story in the language of abstract thought” (Liddon, ibid p 162).

It is no exaggeration to say that the doctrine of the deity of Christ impinges on every aspect of Christian theology. Without this great truth, Christ’s saving sacrifice has no significance; sin has no remedy; mankind is lost; out hope of eternal life vanishes and to quote the Apostle Paul, “we are to be pitied more than all men” (1 Cor. 15: 19).

Our prayer is that the following pages’ for all the inadequacies will stimulate the reader to further careful research into more comprehensive, evangelical treatises on Christology. At best, we trust that some will be pointed toward saving faith in our risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who, with the father and the Holy Spirit, is worthy of our worship!
