One of my friends claims that Jesus never says the exact words “I am God” in the bible but He does proclaim that He is God. John 10:30, John 8:58, John 1:1, John 1:14
“Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.” Who bought the church—the church of God—with His own blood? Jesus Christ. Acts 20:28 declares that God purchased His church with His own blood. Therefore, Jesus is God.
Thomas the disciple declared “My Lord and my God” to Jesus and Jesus does not correct him John 20:28
Titus 2:13, tells us to wait for the coming of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ also in Peter 1:1.
Hebrews 1:8, The Father refers to Jesus as “O God” indicating that Jesus is God.
In the Bible people worshipped Jesus and Jesus never told them it was wrong.
