Jesus, Our Immanuel (God With Us)
If Jesus Christ is merely a man and not God, the apostle Paul would not have said,
Paul, an apostle - not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ. (Galatians 1:1)
Similarly, if Jesus Christ is merely God and not a man, Paul would not have said,
For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 2:5)
If Jesus Christ is merely an angel and not God, God the Father would not have said to Him,
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. (Hebrews 1:8)
If Jesus Christ is not equal with and one (in essence) with God the Father, the Father would not have said of Him,
Let all God's angels worship Him. (Hebrews 1:6)
But because Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, the apostle John said,
...the Word was God...the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:1, 14)
