Parking Lot Podcasting at its finest…. it’s a good thing I don’t quit my day job! In this, the 5th episode, I wanted to discuss the Divinity of Jesus and how it is revealed through, both, sacred scripture and sacred tradition. I have personally had conversations with people who deny the divinity of Jesus so this topic is near and dear to my heart.
The secret, I think, is the Greek words eg-o’ i-mee (Strong’s 1473 & 1510) which is the divine name, given to Moses, by God in Exodus 3. This is the great “I AM” that the Jews knew referred to God himself and which Jesus evokes in the Gospels, which results in his getting the death penalty. Also, in true hacker style, I threw out another Greek word… pros-koo-neh’-o (strong 4532) which refers to the worship reserved only for God yet we see, in the scriptures, how Jesus was worshiped by men (the deciles as well as others) with pros-koo-neh’o and yet Jesus never said… wait… i’m no God. Instead this is a clear endorsement of his divinity.

I am also posting a copy of a conversation I have had with a Jehovah Witness this past December on this topic:
Just remember… eg-o’ i-mee is no breakfast waffle but the Devinne Name that Christ claimed for him self… John 8:24 ” That is why I told you that you will die in your sins. For if you do not believe that I AM, 12 you will die in your sins.”
There you have it… May God Bless you
