The two major issues covered in this chapter of Groothuis’ Christian Apologetics are: 1) the “God or a bad man” argument for Jesus’ deity, and 2) the logical coherence of a “Godman” (someone who is both God and man).
The “God or a bad man” argument for the deity of Jesus from p. 507:
1. If Jesus claimed to be divine (in addition to being human), but was not divine, he was a bad man and merely human; that is, he was deceived, or a deceiver.
2. Jesus was not a bad man and merely human; that is, he was neither deceived, nor a deceiver.
3. Therefore, Jesus was divine (in addition to being human).
