The scriptures testify that Jesus, was more than a mere man and more than just a prophet. The scriptures reveal that Jesus Christ is both Lord and King of God’s Kingdom.
Jesus is referred to as Lord some 250 times in the new testament and the title Lord is applied to God 150 times.
Many new testament scriptures attest to the divinity of Jesus Christ, yet other scriptures speak of the subservience of Jesus to God the Father.
The subservience of Jesus Christ to God the Father, should not be taken to mean that Jesus was an ordinary man like Muhammad. Jesus was not an ordinary man.
Jesus is the one whom God has appointed as ruler of his people and Lord of his Kingdom. Jesus holds a place in God’s kingdom which no other man can claim: He is Lord and King, ruler and governor of God’s kingdom.
The submission of Jesus to the will of God doesn’t prove that he is a mere man, but rather, that he is unique and unlike all others. Jesus is the only man who has ever lived a sinless life in perfect obedience to God and he is the only man who pre-existed with God in eternities past.
Jesus was present when God called heaven and earth into existence and was clothed in majesty before the foundation of the world. This is a claim that no other man can make, not even Muhammad.
In his prayer in John 17, just before returning to the Father, Jesus prayed: “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”
Jesus is more than a mere man, and more than a prophet: Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is ruler and governor of God’s Kingdom. He is the one whom God has appointed that men should follow.
King David prophesied of Jesus saying, “the Lord said to my Lord, sit on my right hand until I make thine enemies thy footstool” and the apostle Peter tells us these words were fulfilled when God exalted Jesus at his own right hand.
Whereas, Muhammad is a “dead prophet,” Jesus is the living King and Lord of lords seated at the right hand of God, and holding the highest place of honor in God’s Kingdom.
Jesus is the one whom God commands all men to follow and Jesus is the one through whom God will judge the nations.
There is no other man like Jesus.
