Jesus is the Son of God who was sent by God to come and die for the sins of humanity. This is what many believe and this is what many have been taught, so it's a bit difficult to think otherwise.
Who do people say I am? That was the question Jesus asked His disciples in Matthew 16:13-20. Even from his disciples a people he had spent years with and they witnessed him perform a lot of miracles they still had a lot of answers.
Peter said “You the Christ, the Son of God. But what does the Bible say Jesus Christ is? We are introduced to Christ in the very first book of the Bible Genesis chapter 1. Wow you are lying that's what someone might be thinking but here it is. Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us( Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth."
That is where we get the first introduction of the trinity of God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God and God is Jesus Christ. You cannot separate one from the other or choose to believe one to the other. It's a complete package that goes together and cannot be separated. John 1:1-2 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.
John here proves the deity of Jesus the Word, who was in the beginning with God , This very same Word which is Jesus was with God and it was God. In layman's terms Jesus is God and God is Jesus.
Believing in God is believing in Christ and Vice-Versa.
