Round 1 - First argument
Round 2, 3, 4 - Rebuttal
Round 5 - Conclusion

John 8:24 - "I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am, ye shall die in your sins.". (Note: I took the word "He" out because the Greek word for "He", is not in the original text.)[1]

Jesus claimed to be the I Am that God claimed to be in Exodus 3:14)

John 8:58 - "Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am."

He claimed to be the I Am, and claimed to exist before Abraham.

Matthew 28:18 - ""And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth."

Only God has all power over Heaven and Earth.

Yahweh said in Isaiah 44:6 - "I [am] the first, and I [am] the last".
Jesus said in Revelation 22:13, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last."

For my opponent to make a well-grounded argument, they would have to:
Firstly, Refute all my claims about the verses above.
And secondly, has to show verses where Jesus claimed he wasn't divine.

You must do both of those things to have a well-grounded argument.

I'll accept the debate, my side being that Jesus never claimed to be God in the bible.

Conclusion - Jesus claimed to be God in the Bible, and when he said that the Father is greater, he was talking about in Rank, not essence.

Why are you debating truths? There are multiple places where he claims to be the Son of God. It's near pointless to do a factual debate, as it's already proven true...

I'm speaking of what Jesus said according to the Bible (And, Biblically, Jesus worked through prophets to write it.).

Jesus didn't write the Bible...?
