Volume 2 ch. X
The Deity of Christ

by Professor Benjamin B. Warfield, D.D., LL.D.,
Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, New Jersey

A recent writer has remarked that our assured conviction of the deity of Christ rests, not upon “proof-texts or passages, nor upon old arguments drawn from these, but upon the general fact of the whole manifestation of Jesus Christ, and of the whole impression left by Him upon the world.” The antithesis is too absolute, and possibly betrays an unwarranted distrust of the evidence of Scripture. To make it just, we should read the statement rather thus: Our conviction of the deity of Christ rests not alone on the Scriptural passages which assert it, but also on His entire impression on the world; or perhaps thus: Our conviction rests no more on the scriptural assertions than upon His entire manifestation. Both lines of evidence are valid; and when twisted together form an unbreakable cord. The proof-texts and passages do prove that Jesus was esteemed divine by those who companied with Him; that He esteemed Himself divine; that He was recognized as divine by those who were taught by the Spirit; that, in fine, He was divine. But over and above this Biblical evidence the impression Jesus has left upon the world bears independent testimony to His deity, and it may well be that to many minds this will seem the most conclusive of all its evidences. It certainly is very cogent and impressive.

Jesus’ Deity seen in various ways

Jesus Divinity seen in His Teachings

We see from the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, even in the time he was a child visiting the temple (Luke 2:46-47) that Jesus had a divine authority in His character. Perhaps other men of God also had this divine authority in his character, ministry, and teaching, but not had it like Jesus.

5. Jesus ever regards himself as the final authority for men. Notice the tone of authority in his forms of speech: “Verily, verily, I say unto you;” “Ye have heard how it hath been said, but I say unto you.” Sometimes the strangest thing in his speech is not its content, but its manner, the way it manifests an absolute consciousness that he himself is the last court of appeal. (See Saint Matt. 5.18-39 and Saint John 14.23.)

101 Questions for Campbellites

By A. A. Davis

From the editor–David Cox

I find this study really pathetic to be truthful. There are doctrinal questions that the Church of Christ answers incorrectly, against Scripture. Davis really has done little to help clarify these points. I have found several rebuttals to this present work, but by Church of Christ, and I am not so sure that they are any better at clarifying the issues. I would recommend that you study my work here (Campbellism, Church of Christ) instead of this present work by Davis.

Testimonies to Jesus as God

OT Testimonies

The very name of “Jesus” means Jehovah is Salvation.

“And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape” (John 5:37). The miracles performed by our Lord were not the only nor the most direct evidence which proved His Deity. The Father Himself had borne witness. The majority of the commentators refer this to the baptism of Christ, when the Father’s voice declared, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” But we scarcely think this is correct. Immediately following, our Lord went on to say, “Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.” What, then, would be the force of Christ here appealing to the Father’s witness at the Jordan if these detractors of His had not heard that Voice? Personally, we think that Christ refers, rather, to the witness which the Father had borne to His Son through the prophets during Old Testament times. This seems to give more meaning to what follows—the Old Testament economy was characterized by an invisible God, neither His voice being heard, nor His shape seen.  Arthur Pink – Exposition of the Gospel of John, Chapter 19.
