Muslims kept challenging the Christians, “where Jesus said, ‘worship me'”? Right after the birth of Jesus, he was already worshiped by three wise men. Those three wise men hailed from faraway region, and take note that they were not Jews who had knowledge about the arrival of their Messiah. Definitely there was a divine information that they received ahead of their coming to Israel so as to pay the infant Jesus homage. This fact alone proves that Jesus is a divine being who came down from Heaven as he claimed. Jesus was also worshiped by his disciples who lived with him as well as other people. This shows that they looked at him as their God and savior. Muslims and some non-Catholic Christians refuse to accept Jesus as their God despite the evidences reflected in the Bible. They even intentionally misrepresent verses from the Bible just to disprove the divinity of Jesus. Below are some of the Biblical verses telling us that Jesus was worshiped and He accepted worship in His time;
