The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
Jesus is more than just a prophet or religious leader, Jesus is God! That’s why I use the name “Jesus” and “God” interchangeably.
At times Scripture refers to Jesus Christ as the son of God, and that’s because He was begotten of God the Father. But while Jesus Christ was fully human, He is also fully God—God in the flesh. (John 1:1,14)
This is why in John 14 when Phillip (a follower of Jesus) asked to see God the Father, Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. (John 14: 9-10 NIV)
The Bible also says:
No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
(John 1:28 NIV)
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are different parts of God, but they are all one!
Deuteronomy 6:4 NIV
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
