John 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
The Jews understood that Jesus was saying that He was equal to God. Some people seem to have a problem thinking that Jesus is God yet the gospel writer John is very clear that Jesus was stating that God was His Father and that the Jews understood exactly what He meant. Jesus is God.
John 5:23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
There are religious sects today that do not regard Jesus with the same honor that they do the Father. They do honor Jesus but not as God and not on the same level as they do the Father. Jesus Himself is talking here. It should be very abundantly clear that Jesus is God.
You are to honor Him in the same way you honor God. To treat Jesus as anything else is blasphemy.
So if a group were to come to your door or desire to talk with you about the Bible and would not honor the Son as they do the Father then you should know that they are not honest. They are not teaching the truth.
Jesus is God come in the flesh. John 1:14 One of the names He was given was Emmanuel which means God with us! Matthew 1:23
Always honor Jesus just like you do the Father. Never think anything less of Him. Never respect any religion that doesnâ€™t honor, love, respect, and hold high the name of Jesus.
There is no other name and no other person like Him. John 14:6, Acts 4:12
