To get to the answer, we can look first at whether there is any legitimacy to the claim that the Bible does teach that Jesus is "a god".
There are plenty of ways to interpret Scripture that might show Jesus as not being the God. Each of these either denies or ignores other verses that show that He is God, and therefore, deny or ignore the doctrine of the Trinity. These verses, taken out of context with the whole of Scripture could lead someone to believe that Jesus is not fully God.
Matthew 24:36 King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven,
but my Father only.
Taken on its own, it seems to show that Jesus and the Father are not the same being. One knows something that the other does not.
The evidence against such a teaching is simply to look at the whole of Scripture and not ignore obvious claims that He is God. Such a claim is simply contrary to Scripture.
John 1 (KJV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made
that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all
men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world
knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the
sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of
the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his
glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace

List of the I AM quotes from Jesus, showing that He is the I AM that spoke to Moses, from the link above:
John 6:51:"I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If
anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever;"
John 8:23: And He said to them, "You are from beneath; I AM from
above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.
John 8:12: Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I AM the light of
the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the
light of life."
John 8:58 Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before
Abraham was, I AM."
John 10:9: "I AM the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved,
and will go in and out and find pasture."
John 10:11: "I AM the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life
for the sheep.
John 10:36: "do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent
into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son
John 11:25: Jesus said to her, "I AM the resurrection and the life. He
who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
John 14:6: Jesus said to him, "I AM the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.
John 15:1: "I AM the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
John 19:2: Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, "Do
not write, 'The King of the Jews,' but, 'He said, "I am the King of
Acts 7:32: Stephen speaking of Moses' encounter at the burning bush
"saying, 'I am the God of your fathers-- the God of Abraham, the God
of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' And Moses trembled and dared not
Acts 9:5: And he said, "Who are You, Lord?" And the Lord said, "I am
Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against
The I Am In the Old Testament was whatever man needed. He became, he
was his all in all. Jesus in the New Testament uses all the examples
to show who He is. He is everything to man and the only way to God.
The most important of all the statements is in John 8:24 after he
tells them I am not of this world. "Therefore I said to you that you
will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am [He], you
will die in your sins." ( he is not in the original). He is
communicating to them he is the same I AM that Moses met at the
burning bush which commissioned him.
The idea that Jesus is a god comes from the claim that He IS God (Big "G", not a god - little "g") In other words, he is The God, the one and only, one of the three persons of the Trinity.
As far as saying that Jesus is a god , there are none. Nothing in Scripture says that Jesus is "a god". It doesn't say he is "a god", a teaching that would make him equal to Baal, or any of the other false "gods".
There may be, of course, those that believe such a thing, but it's not because it's found in the Bible.
