Please read the Gospels written within 50 years after Jesus' death and Resurection or earlier. John and Matthew were disciples of Jesus. Mark and Luke traveled with Peter and Paul. Paul was not a disciple of Jesus initially (not one of the twelve), but a persecutor of Jesus' followers. He was blinded by Jesus in a vision (after Jesus' Resurection into Heaven) on his way to Damascus to round up some Christians and to bring them back to Jerusalem for trial by the Jewish authorities. Through this miraculous encounter with the risen Jesus, he became one of the greatest preachers of the Gospels (good news). Jesus told us in John 3:36 that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life.

These are verses that support Jesus as God, One with the Father.

John 3:16, 3:18, 3:36, 6:40, 8:18, 8:42, 8:54, 8:58, 10:9, 10:10, 10:30, 10:38, 14:2, 14:6, 149, 14:10, 14:11, 14:28, 14:31, 15:1, 15.8, 16:15, 17:2, 17:10, 17:24 , 19:7, 20:28

Luke 6:5, 9:20,10:22, 22:69, 22:70, 23:43

Mark 12:35, 14:62

Matthew 13:40, 16:16, 16:17, 22:42, 23:37, 26:64

These all state or support that Jesus is God. Also read the Gospels for His many miracles, raisng three people from the dead, giving sight to the blind, healing lepers, feeding 5,000 men on a five loaves and two fish and again feeding 4,000 on seven loaves and a small fish, walking on water, quieting a storm, driving out demons and dying on the cross and rising on the third day as He said He would, plus others.

You do not need anything but the Gospels to understand Jesus was the Son of God, One with the Father, and in John 14:9, He tells Phillip "anyone who has seen me, has seen the Father".

I assume you are Muslim. Compare the witnessed statements of miracles by Jesus the Christ in the Gospels verses no miracles for Muhammad except for his journey to the seventh heaven which was not witnessed by anyone. Muhammad's teachings are violent against non believers while Jesus says to love one another and love even your enemies and forgive seven times seventy. These teachings are contray to each other.

I must believe in Jesus Christ who told us "no one comes to the Father except through me" and performed a multitude of miracles. He was killed by the Jewish leadership of the time because of they accused Him of blasphemy, that He claimed to be the Son of God making Himself equal with God.

Please read the Gospels and see for yourself Jesus' wonderful promise of eternal life for those who believe in Him.
