The Natures Of Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ is both God and man in one sinless Person. As God, He always had a divine nature. Through His birth on earth, He also took upon Himself a human nature - both body and soul.

God reveals Jesus' divine nature in numerous references throughout Scripture. These can be grouped under the following two headings:

1. References which ascribe divine names, attributes, works, and honors to the Lord Jesus

2. References of personal testimony to Jesus being divine

Examples of various scriptural references under these two headings are provided in the following charts:
