How did monotheist Jews begin to worship a man named Jesus as God? Western Christians know that Jesus is God, but we often fail to make a well-articulated argument for how that came to be. We often start with beliefs about God that come from various places, and then we say that Jesus is THAT God's son. But this argument is backward. Today, I want to explain how faithful, monotheist first-century Jews began to worship Jesus as the one and only God.
