Almighty God says:I have done much work among man, during which time I have also expressed many words. These words are all for the sake of man’s salvation and were expressed so that man might become compatible with Me. However, I have gained only a few people on earth who are compatible with Me, and so I say that man does not treasure My words—it is because ...
The 3 darts to the heart and the 3 nails of the cross

The existence of the Church itself is evidence
Granted, it's not the strongest piece of evidence, but it's worth mentioning because Protestants and others so often overlook this angle. The Church began with the 12 apostles (or 11 if you don't count Judas) at the Last Supper. They received part of their mandate there, and part of it just before the ...
Everyone who comes to believe that Jesus is God does so because of the revelation that they have available to them, which has varied across history.
Some believed because of the miracles that Jesus performed:

The Bible verses I'm using, which can help us understand Jesus's Second Coming, are:
Revelation1:7 "Look! He comes with the clouds of heaven and everyone
will see him, even those who pierced him. And all the nations will
mourn for him..";
Luke24:39 "Look at my hands and my feet ((showing the nail-wound
