THE DEITY OF CHRIST
Works are Done by Christ Which Only God Can Do.
This study is adapted from Dr. Alva McClains notes, revised by Dr. John Whitcomb and Ivan French, and used by permission of Grace Theological Seminary, Winona Lake, Indiana. This is one of the finest studies ever produced on the deity of Christ, and every student of the Scriptures should master this material.
A. Christ created all things.
B. Christ upholds and preserves all things.
C. Christ guides and directs the stream of history.
D. Christ forgives the sins of man and gives eternal life.
E. CHRIST BUILDS THE CHURCH AND MAINTAINS ITS CORPORATE EXISTENCE
F. Christ receives and answers prayer.
G. Christ will raise the dead in the resurrection.
H. Christ is the Final Judge of the world.
The above "works" are not to be classed as
miracles which might be done through delegated agents such as prophets and apostles.
Such "works" in the Old Testament were not only attributed to God, but they were the marks of the one true God. The New Testament writers knew this, yet they did not hesitate to attribute them to Jesus Christ.
