Jesus is the only person, the only being worthy of our worship. Jesus himself claimed to be God (John 8:58), that is why his opponents picked up stones to kill him. The scripture affirms that Jesus is God (Hebrews 1:1-4), that he is the creator, and that he is our redeemer. Colossians 1:15-20 is one of the earliest statements about the deity of Jesus and his supremacy. He is the head of the church, and the one who reconciles men and women to God.
