Why is Jesus Christ God?
Jesus Christ is God because He is the only Son of God, having the same divine nature as His Father. (a) Jesus Christ is the second Person of the Blessed Trinity, who from eternity proceeds by true spiritual generation from the Father. (b) We believe Jesus Christ is God because God Himself revealed this truth:
first, through the Prophets of the Old Testament who foretold that the promised Redeemer would be God;
second, through Christ Himself, who claimed to be God and confirmed His own testimony by the holiness of His life, by the fulfillment of His prophecies, and by the miracles He worked in His own name and by His own power, especially His Resurrection. (c) A miracle is something that is not according to the usual course of created nature, surpasses the power of all creatures, and consequently can be produced only by the power of God. (d) The senses must be able to observe a miracle if it is to have the value of a proof for us. (e) Only God can be the principal cause of a miracle because a miracle surpasses the power of all creatures. God sometimes uses creatures as instruments in performing miracles. (f) Since God, who is all-truthful, is the principal cause of a miracle, it cannot be worked in support of a lie. (g) The following are some of Christ's miracles: He restored sight to the blind, cured lepers in an instant, walked on the waters of the sea, multiplied the loaves and fishes, raised the dead to life, and finally, rose from the dead Himself by His own divine power.
