The word “Christology” comes from two Greek words meaning “Christ / Messiah” and “word” – which combine to mean “the study of Christ.” Christology is the study of the Person and work of Jesus Christ. There are numerous important questions that Christology answers: Today Dr. Hocking continues our look at the deity of Christ by examining His attributes ie. Creator & Names.

We are continuing to study the deity of Christ. Turn to Isaiah 44. We have already looked at His names that prove He is God. He is called “God,” and the “Son of God.” If I were to ask you what that means, you, of course, will know. It refers to position not origin. The fact of the matter is that the Greek word for “born one” is never used of Him in the New Testament. He is the heir. He is called the “Lord”—kurios is what translates the Hebrew word, Yahweh. He is called the “Lord of Glory.” He is called the “Holy One.” One hundred and eight times the Bible says that He is the “Holy One of Israel.”
Now Isaiah 44 presents a very critical issue as it relates to the deity of Christ. He is called the First and the Last. Look at Isaiah 44:6. I pointed out to you before that the word Yahweh is used twice in this verse. The Redeemer is called “Yahweh of Hosts.” It says, “Thus saith Yahweh, the King of Israel and His redeemer, Yahweh of Hosts, [Lord Sabbaoth].” The word Sabbaoth means hosts or armies. “I am the first and I am the last and beside Me there is no God.” Now I know the statement, “I am the first and the last and beside Me is no God,” is a statement of deity. Over in Isaiah 48:12 it says, “Harken unto Me O Jacob and Israel, my called, I am He. I am the first. I also am the last.” There it is again. “My hand hath also laid the foundation of the earth.” This one is clearly the creator.
