How Can Jesus And God Be The Same?


Thank you for your Godly wisdom in answering our questions. Your site is the highlight of my day. I have become friends with a young lady who attends my church and who has told me she is not saved. Her question to me this past Sunday was how can God also be Jesus? What would be a good answer to a non-believer who hasn’t a clue, but one who is genuinely seeking answers?


God is a Spirit (John 4:24) and therefore not visible to us. Jesus came in the flesh so we could see Him (John 1:14). He said anyone who has seen Him has seen the Father (John 14:9). Colossians 1:15 and Hebrews 1:3 say Jesus is the visible image of God and the exact representation of His being. To me this means when God wants to be visible to us, He appears as Jesus.
