Recently, I have heard the argument brought forward that Jesus never claims to be God in the Bible, and that his divinity is a man-made doctrine from centuries after his death.
Jesus’ divinity can be seen all throughout the Bible!
Here are 12 verses that show Jesus’ divinity in the Bible:
John 1:1 ESV

John 10:30 ESV

John 1:14 ESV

Isaiah 9:6 ESV
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
John 8:58 ESV

I and the Father are one.” The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?” The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.”
2 Corinthians 4:4 ESV

These verses show the Divine nature of Jesus is clearly found within the Bible.
