Difference Between God and Jesus

God vs. Jesus

Every religion has a different outlook and idea about God and Jesus. There are no two religions that will look at both the same. For some, God is a monotheistic image who represents the way to salvation. For others, there is not just one god but many, polytheism. Jesus is typically never worshipped as a God, rather as His prophet or human version. In all religions, God is above Jesus in terms of reverence and power. God and Jesus, however, are part of some Western religions, and it is written in their Bible teachings that there is only one God, and that Jesus is His mediator not another God.

God is a figure or representation of the Creator of the world in Western religions. God is the most holy and should be praised and thanked for His teachings and ability to lead people to Heaven. Jesus is a man who represents and comes to followers as a man like all others. In Western religions, He is considered a holy man that was sent to do the work of God. In fact, some believe that Jesus was God’s Son. God cannot be killed. He is not a person. He is an Immortal Being who is not visible to mortals like you and me. An important Biblical point of these religions is that God cannot be tempted to sin by the devil. Jesus can, and in the Bible was killed. His death was said to mark the cleansing of our souls from sin. Jesus was a tangible person who, unlike God, could be tempted into sinning and doing evil by the devil. God is all powerful and, if believed in, can send the devil away. Most believe that God is in Heaven where salvation and enlightenment occur, a paradise so to speak. He is the Creator, and it is due to Him, not evolution, that man has been placed upon this Earth. On the other hand, the birth of Jesus was said to take place in Bethlehem on Christmas day. Many religions will celebrate this day as a holiday and holy day of obligation. There are other holidays throughout the year centered around Jesus like: Passover, Good Friday, and even Easter. Easter is said to be the day that Jesus rose from the grave and joined his Father, God, in Heaven.

God and Jesus are both religious figures in some Western religions in the world. God is considered an Immortal Being, and Jesus was considered a man. Jesus is said to be the only Son of God from the immaculate conception with Mary.
In certain religions, God is responsible for the creation of the world and is revered for His teachings and blessings to people on Earth. Jesus is seen as a messenger of God and was killed to cleanse the people of their sins.
There are holidays throughout the religious calendar year to celebrate events in the life of Jesus: Christmas day was his birth, Passover, and Easter. These dates are holy days of obligation in certain religions.

  1. Who wrote this stuff? Jesus is God! John 1:1

    • This post seems to be leaning from either an eastern (Buddhist or Islamic) position. It fails to take into account the whole point of the Christian church history. The whole issue with the Gnostic gospels and the meeting of Nicea.

      In the determination of what the churches position on Jesus was. Was he 100% man as some believed; 100% God (Only Spirit) as the Gnostic claimed; or was he Both? In the meeting of Nicea it was concluded after study of the scriptures that Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. That he was the full and complete revelation of God the creator in Human likeness. 100% Man in flesh through the birth of a woman (the virgin birth), 100% God in Spirit through the miracle of a fatherless conception (again the virgin birth).

      If he were just a man, his blood sacrifice would never be capable of atoning for the sins of all humanity. His crucifixion was solely for the reason that he claimed to be God, “Before Abraham was, I AM.” Jesus himself claimed deity, and was almost stoned multiple times for it according to the new testament gospels.

      It is quite clear from the Christians world view that he was God in Flesh.

      The Nicene creed: (the doctrine of all the Christian Churches Catholic and Protestant alike)

      We believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

      And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of Very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father by whom all things were made; who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary, and was made man, and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried, and the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead, whose kingdom shall have no end.

      And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And we believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. And we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

      I think that spells it out quite clearly.

  2. God is Jesus’s Ftaher—–Thats simple No work

    • It is clear from John 1 that Jesus and the God are the same. He is the word of God.

      John 1:1-18

      1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.

      6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

      9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

      14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

      15 (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) 16 Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and[b] is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
