Divine Attributes of Jesus

You are here:  Home >Catholicism Index >Quasi-Christian Cults Index >Divine Attributes of Jesus
(Last Updated:  04 Jan 2002 )

Jehovah's Witnesses deny that Jesus is God.  This page is an extract from page 89 of Jason Evert's Answering Jehovah's Witnesses, an excellent book about dealing with Jehovah's Witnesses and the issues they raise at your doorstep.  For more on JWs, see the JW section of my Quasi-Christian Cults page.

Below are verses that indicate that Jehovah's traits, powers and titles are shared by Jesus.  Since a mere creature, no matter how exalted, cannot inherently possess divine attributes as well as the very character of God Almighty, the only way one can understand this sharing of traits is to acknowledge that Jesus must be God Almighty.
Divine Attribute Applied to Jesus Applied to Jehovah
Mighty God
King of Kings
Lord of Lords
The only Savior
The First and the Last
The Alpha and the Omega
Worshiped by angels
Created heaven and earth
Upholds the universe
From time indefinite
Redeems from iniquities
Has power to forgive
Wonderful Counselor
Lives in us
Gives eternal life
Judges the world
To be worshiped
Calms the sea
Will give to man according to his ways
To him every knee will bend and every tongue will confess he is Lord
