He is the appointed heir of all things. Heb.1:2.

Anointed with the oil of gladness above his fellows. Heb.1:9.

God has ordained him to be judge of quick and dead. Acts 17:31.

Reveals his purposes through him. Rev.1:1.

The head of Christ in God. 1Cor.11:3.

Jesus had power to lay down his life and take it again. John 10:18.

He received this commandment from the Father. John 10:19. God raised him from the dead. Acts 2:24,34; 3:15; 4:10; 10:40; 13:30,34; 17:31; Rom.4:24: 8:11; 1Cor.8:14; 15:15; 2Cor.4:14; Gal.1:1; Eph.1:20; Col.2:12; 1Thess.1:10; Heb.13:20; 1Pet.1:21;

Jesus says he could do nothing of himself. John 5:19.

That the Father which dwelt in him did the works. John 14:10.

That the Father which sent him, gave him a commandment what he should say and what he should speak. John 12:49.

That he came not to do his own will, but the will of him that sent him. John 6:38.

And that his doctrine was not his, but the Father's which sent him. John 7:16; 8:28; 12:49; 14:10,24.

With such inspired declarations before us, ought we to say that Jesus Christ is the Self-existent, Independent, Omniscient and Only True God; or the Son of God, begotten, upheld, exalted and glorified BY THE FATHER? {1858 UrS, BSA 44.13} Uriah Smith, Bible Student Assistant
