Deity of Jesus Christ

Here is a fantastic quote from C.S. Lewis’s “Mere Christianity” on the deity of Jesus Christ.

“A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic–on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg–or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us.”

For more reading in the vein of the claims that Jesus made I recommend the book by Josh McDowell titled “More Than a Carpenter”. Link. It is 128 pages, cheap, and will show convincing evidence that Jesus Christ is the prophesied Messiah of the Old Testament.
