Do you think God created Jesus?

I do not. I think they were both (all 3) always in existence- never created.
But I often see people say things about Jesus being a creation of God, like God created trees, he created Jesus, too.

I wondered how many people believed this and why? Is it in the scriptures that Jesus was created of God? What is the basis for this thought?

  • LEXY: Jesus, in his prehuman existence, was “the first-born of all creation.” (Colossians 1:15, NJB) He was “the beginning of God’s creation.” (Revelation 3:14, RS, Catholic edition). “Beginning” [Greek, ar·khe′] cannot rightly be interpreted to mean that Jesus was the ‘beginner’ of God’s creation. In his Bible writings, John uses various forms of the Greek word ar·khe′ more than 20 times, and these always have the common meaning of “beginning.” Yes, Jesus was created by God as the beginning of God’s invisible creations.

  • Yes, I do. The Bible says that he is the son of God. God sent his son to Earth. A father creates his child so I do believe he was created by God but he is the only perfect creation.

  • Jesus Christ is shown to be “the firstborn of all creation” as well as “the firstborn from the dead”—not merely most distinguished in relation to those created or those resurrected but the first one actually created and the first raised from the dead to endless life. (Col 1:15, 18; Re 1:5; 3:14)
    What is recorded concerning the Word (Jesus) in the Scriptures fits remarkably the description given at Proverbs 8:22-31.

  • Jesus is The Word of God: Did you know? A title often describes the function served or the duty performed by the bearer. So it was with the title Kal-Hatzé, meaning “the voice or word of the king,” that was given an Abyssinian officer. Based on his travels from 1768 to 1773, James Bruce describes the duties of the Kal-Hatzé as follows. He stood by a window covered with a curtain through which, unseen inside, the king spoke to this officer. He then conveyed the message to the persons or party concerned. Thus the Kal-Hatzé acted as the word or voice of the Abyssinian king.—Travels to Discover the Source of the Nile, London, 1790, Vol. III, p. 265; Vol. IV, p. 76.
