Was Jesus merely a man?

Some consider Jesus as no more than an outstanding man who left his mark on history. And then some worship him as God.

The Bible says that Jesus is God's Son and that he is the second most important person in the universe next to God Himself. Christ was the 'master worker' in creating the universe and that he came to earth from heaven in order to provide a ransom hope to Adam's offspring.

The Bible says that Jesus' origin was “from early times, from the days of time indefinite,” (Micah 5:2).

The Bible identifies Jesus as “the beginning of the creation by God.” (Revelation 3:14) Jesus is “the firstborn of all creation.” That is so “because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and upon the earth, the things visible and the things invisible.” (Colossians 1:15, 16) Jesus was the only one directly created by God himself. Therefore, he is called God’s “only-begotten Son.” (John 3:16)

Rather than claiming to be God, Jesus acknowledged himself as God’s Son. (Mark 14:61, 62; John 3:18; 5:25, 26; 11:4)

God sent his Son to the earth by miraculously transferring the life of Jesus from heaven to the womb of a faithful Jewish virgin named Mary. Jesus inherited no imperfections because he did not have a human father. Jehovah’s holy spirit, or active force, came upon Mary, and his power ‘overshadowed’ her, miraculously causing her to become pregnant. (Luke 1:34, 35) Mary then gave birth to a perfect child. - Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:22, 23; Mark 6:3.
