Introduction

In the quest to determine the truth of the Biblical accounts of various events, places, and people, there are a variety of different kinds and areas of evidence to consider. When we consider whether Jesus was the son of God, there is a wealth of evidence to be found in the Biblical record itself, when that evidence is examined in connection with external evidence. That is, external evidence can corroborate the internal evidence.
Who was Jesus? Some believe He was the Son of God. Some believe he was a prophet from God, but not the son of God. Some believe he was simply a good man. Some even deny that he was a good man. Few, however, deny that he even existed.
Jesus said that He was the Son of God. So we have three possibilities to consider. 1) Jesus was a liar and an imposter. 2) Jesus had a mental problem and really believed he was the son of God. Or, 3)Jesus was, in fact, the Son of God. What does the evidence say? We will examine the internal Biblical evidence in our quest to determine who Jesus really was.

The Events Were Public

Jesus was very much a public figure. In Matthew 11, John had heard in prison (Matt. 14:2-4) the works of Christ. Hw sent two of his disciples to ask Jesus, "Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?" (Matt. 11:3). Jesus's response is significant. Luke tells us, " And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight" (Luke 7:21). Then He told them:
Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
Jesus did not simply tell John's messengers that he worked these miracles. Nor did they have to rely on word from eyewitnesses. He showed them what He could do. Then John could rely on eyewitness accounts of the divinity of Jesus Christ.
When Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves and two fishes (Mat. 14:14-21), not only did five thousand see turn the loaves and fishes into enough to feed such a crowd, with twelve baskets full left over, they ate the food!
In fact, most of the miracles of Jesus that are recorded in the New Testament happened in full-view of multitple people.
