Who is Jesus: in the Gospel of John

In the gospel of John, Jesus is seen as the eternal, incarnate God who came to reveal the Father to a lost world. This book links back to Genesis 1:1, showing Jesus’ deity as creator of everything. Only God can create things. He is also seen as the Word (logos). The powerful spoken word is what was used to create everything. Through Him only is everlasting life. Also He compares and contrasts himself with light and darkness, because He was a great light in a dark time in history.

Who is Jesus: in the Gospel of Luke

Jesus is seen as Lord in the gospel of Luke. Between Luke and Acts, Lord is used one hundred and four times. The word “Lord” (kurios) is the Greek translation of the holy name for God in the Old Testament (Yahweh). In the New Testament, it can mean “sir” or “master”, but mostly when it is use it is basically saying that Jesus is equal with God. This alone is a huge claim showing Jesus as deity. Lord shows Jesus as a ruler with authority. Luke shows Jesus as “Lord of the Sabbath”. (6:5) He is the one who created it and has control over it. He has the right to say what can be done on the Sabbath.

Luke 6:5 And He was saying to them, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
