Isn’t Jesus just another good prophet, like many others throughout history?

While some people hold this perspective, this is an option that Jesus clearly never intended for people to think. Consider His words:

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6

The words of the British author, C.S. Lewis provide great insight here:

“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic – on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg – or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse.” (C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, pp. 40-41.)
