Only God is immortal
1 Timothy 1:16-17
16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Jesus is immortal. Some may say vs 17 is about God the Father, but the context would make it appear that it is talking about Jesus.
God is Preexistent
And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Jesus was before all things. That means He was before all things existed. He had no beginning just like God had no beginning. And all things consist by Jesus.
Only God can forgive sins
5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
Jesus forgives sin
God is all powerful
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Jesus is all powerful
God is all knowing
In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Jesus is all knowing
God is omnipresent
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Jesus is omnipresent
In the next lesson we will see how Scripture says that Jesus is equal to God.
