When Jesus Claimed to be God.

Some modern skeptics and critics of The idea of Christ being God incarnate often say, “Jesus never claimed to be God, he only said he was God’s son.”

John 10:30 “The Father and I are one.”

But to the contrary, that is not what I see going on here. Jesus claimed he was one with God, if you ask me that is a pretty bold statement. The tenth chapter of John continues on this way:

SEE Leviticus 24:13-14 Then the Lord said to Moses: “Take the blasphemer outside the camp. All those who heard him are to lay their hands on his head, and the entire assembly is to stone him.

The Jews of his day knew exactly what Jesus was claiming, otherwise they wouldn’t have picked up stones to kill him. To make the absurd claim that Jesus never claimed deity in scripture is to deny what happened here, and if the Jews of his time knew beyond a shadow  of a doubt who Jesus was claiming he was.

  1. You looked over verse 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”33 “We are not stoning you for any of these,” replied the Jews, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”—–its obvious that he insinuated he was God. Just read the text, its quite plain. The Jews tried to kill because even they understood what he was saying.

  2. They got exactly what he was saying, they did not end up debating among themselves about what Jesus really meant, they accused him of blasphemy and claiming to “be God”

  3. See, I knew you would not believe their claims, yet their claims are no less blasphemous than what Jesus was supposed to have said. As predicted, you use the holy text to prove the holy text is true.

    “… the crucifixion account of Jesus, these things did actually take place.”

    I’d sure like to see the proof of this. Many people would like to see the proof of it. The fact is that there is _no_ proof that there was a miracle working Jesus who was crucified. The only proof you can offer is to claim the holy text is the true word of a god. A god for which you also have no proof. Nothing that you claim to believe is more believable than what the 5 say who claim they are Jesus.

    Just the same, I will bet that you’ll hang on to your beliefs until the end, never having proof or justification for believing. You’re no different than those Jews who wanted to stone Jesus.

    1. I have all the proof I need my friend, I see the created order as enough proof from a beautiful sunset to the complexity of a cell. That is so much more then you have to back up your beliefs, evolution for example is still just a theory and cannot be proven, no matter what you say. It is impossible and absurd to believe something can create itself out of nothing. I have more proof then you have to support what you assert. You started this debate, and many of the other debates on here and it’s obvious you are trying to be argumentative. There is no purpose for your existence if what you claim was actually the truth, the only benefit to believing what you do is to as scripture says “eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die” Yes indeed, because when the bottom drops out in your life and pleasure runs dry, you will have no one or nothing to turn to to ease the pains of life or cope with your existence. Suppose tragedy strikes tomorrow and you wind up with nothing, you really do not have anything in your belief system to turn to for hope- after all, you are here and then you die. You will one of these days according to what evolution would say just go out of existence and be burried, and be pushing up daiseys. There is no real plan or purpose for you being here if what you think is “scientific truth” and your just a product of chance.

      It’s enough for me to believe because I have seen God work in my life, I have seen Him at work in many other ways. You can have your evolution and “survival of the fittest” and I will have my joy of knowing and serving Christ. It’s your choice, like I said, but you have no idea what your life is missing in all honesty. Im very happy and satisfied with my life. Tell me. Are you? And tell me, what will you turn to when tragedy hits? The bottle maybe, drugs, sex? Let me know how it works out for you! —-Sorry to be so blunt, but your theory and “scientific” “reality” have nothing to offer you, and nothing to offer anyone else. Hopefully you do not take this as an insult and I mean you no hard feelings, but the idea your trying to sell me does not sound like a way to live or enjoy life at all. After all, life will not always be good and evolution will offer you no consolation when you come to your time of dispair. Have a nice evening.
