Jesus Claims He Is God!

Jesus Claimed to be God

Enoch is said to have walked (same Hebrew word) with God (Genesis 5:22), and the implication of the Voice of God searching for Adam “in the cool of the day” (cp. Genesis 3:8) suggest normal, perhaps daily, fellowship[1] Read the rest of this entry »
