Does the Bible say that Jesus is God?

Almost all world religions have some respect for Jesus. According to Islam He was a prophet; according to the Baha’i faith He was a “manifestation” of God; according to Hinduism He was a perfect example of “self-realisation”; according to Sikhism He was a holy man. But what about the Bible? There is no doubt the Bible teaches that Jesus has a much higher status than these religions afford Him, but just how high? Does the Bible ascribe to Him dignity or deity? We will see in this article that the Bible doesn’t place Jesus at the top of creation; rather, it places Him above and outside it – because He is the Creator.
