Son of God

Christians believe that Jesus was and is divine.  More precisely, they believe that He is the second person of the Trinity, God the Son, and that He took on a human form when He visited Earth in the first century.

There are dozens of Bible verses that state or imply this.  Here are a few:

John 1: 1, 14
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God... and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.

John 8:58: Jesus said, "before Abraham was born, I am".

Col 1:15:
Christ is the visible image of the invisible God...

Col 2:9
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.

It is worth pointing out that Christians believe that Jesus is unique in this respect, completely different from all other religious figures that have lived throughout history.  Anyone who denies this is not a Christian, regardless of what they say.
