In Christianity, Jesus is taught to be both fully human and fully God. In the Bible, there are numerous passages that show Jesus' divinity. In the [[Gospel of John]] the opening statement tells us that Jesus, the Word, is God. Jesus himself said that He and the Father were one.
'''[[C.S. Lewis]] on the deity of Christ'''
: ''A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic - on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg - or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us.''
