Did Jesus Have to be God? – 3 Part Series

J. Dan Gill teaches a class at a conference in East Tennessee and refutes the popular idea that Jesus had to be God or a “God-Man” to do the amazing things that he did. Gill tells us that it did not take a “God-Man” to do those things – but rather that it took “God and a perfect man!”

Session 1 – Qs & ANSWERS 1-5: The first session takes up five of the arguments that people often make in an effort to prove that Jesus was God. Here, J. Dan Gill responds to the questions: (1) Did the miracles Jesus did mean that he was God? (2) Did the fact that he forgave sins; (3) rose from the dead; (4) was in the image of God or (5) that he was the son of God, mean that he was God?

Session 2 – Qs & ANSWERS 6-10: This session addresses five more of the popular arguments which are made in order to say that Jesus must have been God. Here, J. Dan Gill answers the questions: (6) Did Jesus being “Lord” or (7)  “Christ” mean that he was God? (8) Did his being worshipped; (9) his not sinning; or (10) his being our savior, mean that he had to be God?

Session 3 – Qs & ANSWERS 11-15: This final session of the series takes up five more arguments that are made by people in order to say that Jesus must have been God. In this presentation, J. Dan Gill responds to the questions: (11) Did God being “in Christ” mean that Christ was God? (12) Did his speaking as no other man spoke mean, that he was God? (13) Did the fact Jesus was born of a virgin, or (14) his being sent from God make him God? And (15) did Jesus being the mediator between God and men mean that he had to be a God-man?
