090 The Deity of Christ

In Episode 90, we talk about the divinity of Jesus Christ and what Christianity is truly all about. In the previous episode, we quoted the famous football coach Vince Lombardi, "Gentlemen, this is a football," as reference to the concept of always drilling, renewing and reviewing the basics. In today's episode, we say, "Church, Christian, this is a football." These are the non-negotiable fundamentals and basics of what it means to be a Christian, to believe in Christian faith and the word of God.

One of the most heated theological debates in early church history is centered on Jesus Christ's Deity. Even today, there are those who deny His divinity. Is it possible that God and Jesus are one and the same? How do they differ from each other?

Tune in now and let's go bigger, better, and deeper!
