In his book Salvation Belongs to the Lord, theologian John Frame points out how incredible it is that Jesus's disciples came to believe that he was God. They were all Jews who had been raised to believe that there is one God and only God should be worshiped. They were not primed to look for God in the form of a man. The idea was preposterous. "Somehow," Frame writes, "during the next 3 years or so, all these Jewish disciples, and many more people besides, are convinced that Jesus is God and deserves to be worshiped as God. They have known him intimately as a man, have walked and talked and eaten with him; yet, they have come to worship him. That is quite an amazing thing."
