Is Yah'shua (Jesus) Elohim (God)?
NCW 19, May 1995
Q. I have read in your publications that you believe that Elohim is used to describe both our Heavenly Father as well as the Saviour [Jesus Christ]. Where in the Bible does it say that Jesus is Elohim (God)??
In three famous Messianic prophecies in the Book of Zechariah we are told that Elohim is sold for 30 pieces of silver (Zech.11:4,12-13), Elohim is pierced at Calvary (Zech.12:10), and Elohim is coming back to the earth as King (Zech.14:5). There are many others besides. Just sit down with a Hebrew Bible, look up the Messianic prophecies about Jesus (which are frequently quoted in the New Testament in case you find it hard to locate them), and you will see quite clearly that the both titles Yahweh/Jehovah and Elohim are applied to Him.
