Does Jesus in the Bible ever say explicitly, that is clearly in so many words, that he is God? If yes, could you please give me the proof from the Bible that he is God?
The questioner is advised to read the introduction topic No. 2 on this website (see first page top left): “The divinity of Jesus and the Incarnation”, and in particular parts I and III.
