His book Jesus as God was possibly one of the most comprehensive, in-depth and scholarly treatment of the New Testament passages attributing deity to Jesus in print. There are a total of sixteen passages in the New Testament have been interpreted at one time or other to attribute deity to Jesus Christ. Harris examined each one in detail. Textual, linguistic, grammatical, contextual, historical, and theological issues were all taken into consideration. Harris' conclusions were that it is certain that John 1:1 and John 20:28 applied the title God to Jesus Christ. Harris believed that it was very probable that Romans 9:5, Titus 2:13, Hebrews 1:8 and 2 Peter 1:1 applied the title God to Jesus and that it was probable that that John 1:18 did as well. Harris believed that it was possible, but not likely that that Acts 20:28, Hebrews 1:9 and 1 John 5:20 called Jesus God.

Murray Harris has made a valuable contribution to the study of the deity of our Lord, focusing on passages that use the word Theos in relation to Christ. He does detailed exegesis of all the pertinent texts, including an outstanding chapter on the use of Theos in the Septuagint, extrabiblical literature, and the NT. Harris is especially helpful on the anarthrous use (. without a definite article) of Theos in John 1:1. He examines all the options and lists the pros and cons of each. The word Theos occurs 1,315 times in the Greek NT primarily as a title for God the Father. Harris believes that of the 15 possible uses of Theos as a title for Christ only 7 are actually so used. He concludes that Theos is definitely used of Christ in John 1:1, and 20:28, very probably in Rom 9:5, Titus 2:13, Heb 1:8, and 2 Pet 1:1, probably in John 1:18, and possibly, but not likely, in Acts 20:28, Heb 1:9, and 1 John 5:20.

Jesus as God stands as one of the significant al contributions of the century. With linguistic and exegetical skill befitting his ranking as a leading international scholar, Murray J. Harris discusses the New Testament use of the Greek term theos ( God ) as a Christological title.
New Testament scholar Murray Harris examines all New Testament references to Jesus as God, believing that the titles of Jesus encapsulate the early Christian understanding of the role and status of Jesus, and contending that the title of Theos has not received adequate attention from biblical scholars. This book helps deal with heresies that would deny the deity of Christ, by carefully addressing every occasion the word Theos is used in relation to Jesus.
