Isaiah 9:6

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

John 1:1 & 14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ... And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 10:30-33

[Jesus said] "I and the Father are one.” The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him.  Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?”  The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.”

John 20:28

Thomas answered and said to Him [Jesus], "My Lord and my God!"

Philippians 2:5-8

Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although Heexisted in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.  Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Colossians 1:15-17

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn** of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whetherthrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.  He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

**Note: Before you get hung up on the term "firstborn", it's important to know that the term "firstborn" was a Greek title meaning one who fully possesses the full authority of the father. A man could, for example, appoint someone (usually, but not necessarily, the oldest son) to be a "firstborn" over his estate. So even when applied to people, it was not primarily a reference to biological birth or birth order. So what the ancient reader understood from this phrase is that Jesus is the authority over all creation, not the first product of it.)

Colossians 2:9

For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form

Hebrews 1:2-4 & 8

...in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things,through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high ... of the Son He says, "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the righteous scepter is the scepter of His kingdom."
