The Mystery of How Jesus Became “God”

In the beginning of the Christian movement around 30 A.D., the followers of Jesus of Nazareth believed him to be just a man. These members of the Jewish faith thought that he was chosen and blessed by God but still just a man. Three centuries later in 327 A.D., the Christian church declared him to be God. He was now Jesus Christ. Over time, early Christian belief about Jesus’ relationship to or with God and his own divine versus human nature changed over time. To many modern Christians, this change remains a mystery. There is historical evidence to explain how a man called Jesus of Nazareth became the divine Jesus Christ.
