Proof Jesus is Lord

1) If Jesus was not Lord, why would the devil himself spend so much time trying to tempt Jesus in Luke 4?

The devil tried to tempt Jesus once in the wilderness for 40 days. If Jesus isn't the Son of God, why would he spend so much time trying to temp Jesus. The second time is when He was in Gethsemane. Jesus must have been resisting temptation very strongly to the point He was sweating blood (Luke 22:44).  read more

2) How did the demon in Luke 4:33-34 know who Jesus was?

By this point Jesus had just started His ministry, but the demon in Luke 4:33-34 said, "I know who you are - the Holy One of God!" The demon immediately knew who Jesus was and obeyed the command Jesus gave it to come out of the man.

3) How do we know Jesus really died?

John (who was there) wrote in the Gospel of John 19:34, "but one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out." He saw blood and water meaning they were separated. This means He was dead. If He were alive only blood would have been seen. Think about it: the last time you got cut did you bleed water and blood, or just blood?

If you are still not convinced Jesus is Lord read the Gospel of John. This specific Gospel differs from the other 3 in the way that John includes scripture from the Old Testament in various places showing how Jesus fulfilled what was prophesied years before He was born. Look below at a few examples. More exist in the book, but here are a few.
  • John 19:24
  • John 19:37
  • John 15:18
