Jesus refused to be considered merely a good moral instructor and instead claimed to be “God alone” (Mark 10:17-18). Additionally, those who heard Jesus say these kinds of things wanted to kill Jesus because He was “making himself equal with God” (John 5:18). Jesus’ claims to be God were clearly heard and understood by His enemies, and Jesus never recanted (Mark 14:61–64). John 8:58–59 reports that Jesus said, “‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.’ So they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.” 

In John 10:30–33, Jesus also said: “‘I and the Father are one.’ The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, ‘I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?’ The Jews answered him, ‘It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.’” In Revelation 22:13, Jesus says, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” With these titles, He is obviously referring to Himself as eternal God.    

Read the verses referenced here when Jesus called Himself God as confirmation that He is who He says He is.
