If God is not a man but Jesus was a man how could Jesus be God ?

How does Jesus mediate between God & Man if he is God ?

5 For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Tim)

So God is clearly not a man, but Jesus was a man, therefore, Jesus was not God

Shiny, none of these arguments are valid to prove that Jesus is divine. You said that Jesus is divine because he had the authority to forgive sin, but the same Bible you read from says "If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven..." John 20:23 Anyone can forgive sins!

As for the miracles, Ezekiel is said to have raised many more dead than Jesus ever did. Joshua stopped the sun and the moon for one whole day. Elisha also raised the dead, resurrected himself, fed a hundred people with loaves and a few ears of corn, Moses parted the red sea. Jesus himself tells us that miracles by themselves do not prove anything (Matt 24:24). So your argument of miracles is irrelevant.

John 10:30 does not mean that Jesus is God at ALL. It simply means that Jesus and God were One in the sense that Jesus did what God wanted him to do. In that sense they are One because they work together since they are in the same mission. In fact, Jesus said that the Jews were also gods (John 10:34). Irrelevant again.

And lastly, Jesus is not interrogated by the High Priest in the Gospel of John (which is supposed to be the favourite one of the Christians). Do you have an answer to that?

Complicated indeed. And a logical absurdity too!

Where do you find the concept of the Trinity in the Bible?

If you say that it is in the Bible, than why would God permit such an important concept to be so "complicated" to understand? When Jesus was on Earth his disciples were ordinary people, without higher education, some were even illiterate, and they easily understood the concepts and information that Jesus would teach them (Acts 4:13). Wouldn't he have taught the Trinity in an easy form, too?

Yet, notice what he DID teach, John 14:28b states: "If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going my way to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am". Here he clearly stated two points, that he was leaving Earth to go to the heavens with Father, and that the Father was greater than him. How could he go to his Father in the heavens if they were the same person? How could his Father be greater than him if they were the same person?

God said"this is My Son in whome I am well pleased"( at the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist)

There are atleast FIVE major incoherencies in that STORY/FABLE of the baptism of Jesus by John? If you wish to know, just ask and you shall learn.

However, how did you know that God said so? Upon what authority are we to believe this impossibility? Jesus himself told us nothing; John the baptist remained silent and the supposed god forgot to tell us so! Are we to accept such absurdity only upon the authority of ancient impostors on face value? We are also told that a DEAF and DUMB spirit also testified about the divinity of Jesus. Why did you not refer that?

When Krishna, the Hindu god, was born a magical voice announced (we are told) that "this is my son that I sent to rule over and guide mankind" --- do you believe this?

How's this one. Because I had a revelation about God & Jesus.
Heb 1:8;
but to the Son he says:
"Your throne God is forever & ever; & .... This is why God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness....
So Lone, I asked someone on here to pray for me. I have no idea what they prayed. But verily I tell you, within a matter of hours, I had a revelation of the majesty of Christ.
No one on the face of the planet, in all of existance was capable of saving mankind, not one was worthy, remember John crying over this. Only God could save us.
Just meditate on this for a while. I pray you receive Gods truth.

I think god is god and Jesus is the son of god, I don't recall Jesus ever saying he himself is god, he said he was the son of god, and that he came to fulfill the will of his father, he even said to pray , say our father who is in heaven, why would he say our father? and Jesus is the son of god, who else could perform such miracles? as far the alien theory, if an alien was here do you really think it would want to show off, wouldn't instinct say blend in?

Why do you think the Pharisees wanted to stone Jesus? Even they were smart enough to know Jesus was claiming He was God.

No Liar YOU are wrong. Wow! Just because you are Jewish doesn't make it right. Jesus died for our sins, including YOURS! It was Gods plan, to reconcile with us AS PREDICTED IN THE OT... whether the Jews want to admit it or not is incidental. I usually leave your nonsense alone but it's getting old...

Allah says :

( 75 ) The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded.

( 76 ) Say, "Do you worship besides Allah that which holds for you no [power of] harm or benefit while it is Allah who is the Hearing, the Knowing?"

( 77 ) Say, "O People of the Scripture, do not exceed limits in your religion beyond the truth and do not follow the inclinations of a people who had gone astray before and misled many and have strayed from the soundness of the way."

Jesus was a physical body indwelt by God. Like an avatar. Jesus was Gods avatar on earth only he was able to think and act freely unlike the teaditional avatar. They were one and the same. The triumvirate nature if God. You are trying to reason God within human terms and human limits of understanding but you are talking about GOD, the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Creator of the whole universe. He is everywhere at once, He knows all pasts, presents and futures, he sees all. Being in heaven and on earth in a human body at the same time would have been childs play for God.

For those who in god they say god is all powerful he can do or be anything. Christians say Jesus is god. And the bible says god made man in his own image. Is it possible that if god is all powerful and can do anything then he could take the form of a man? Or is this something you think is beyond gods power? There are many religions and not all believe in Jesus. If you don't believe in Jesus, why are you obsessed with him?

Lilly that was to lonedisenter who repeatedly asks question after question after question which seems revolved around Jesus and God. I think he is trolling. And he is also trying to cast doubt as to wether or not Jesus is God. But for the non believer that he pretends to be he sure is obsessed with Jesus. I heard someone call another person here a push poll troll. I think that description fits what lonedissenter is trying to pull here as well.

Logic aside: did Jesus claim to be Fod or the Son of God (to Jews, the same thing)? Here are some verses:
1. Mark 2:1-12--Jesus heals a paralytic. He had authority to forgive sins, which is something only God Himself can do. Then, to authenticate His claim, He demonstrated His power by healing the paralytic.

2. The miracles Jesus performed are a very strong indication of His divinity (because no mere human can work actual miracles by his own power). Jesus referred to the miracles in John 10:24-39 as proof that he was telling the truth. This passage is Christ's own response to the unbelieving Jews' charge of blasphemy (dishonoring God by claiming to be God). Incidentally, this section also includes a beautiful promise that once you are saved/born again/become a Christian, you can never lose your salvation. Verses 28-29 say we will "never perish; no one can snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. I and the Father are one." (Here is another strong statement that He is God.) We can have the assurance of eternal security because we didn't earn salvation in the first place; it is a free gift (Ephesians 2:8,9).

3. During Christ's trial, the chief priests asked Him point blank, "Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God." And He said,
"I am." (Mark 14:60-62)
"Yes, it is as you say." (Matt. 26: 63-65)
"You are right in saying I am." (Luke 22:67-70)
Not only does Jesus NOT deny it, he says others are right to say so. Evidently, he does not press the claim, but he waits for us to recognize it.

Trying to disprove the trinity using the bible is like using "origin of the species" to disprove Darwin.

Lone, The bible was a book assembled by Trinitarians for Trinitarians. It was assembled by the early church under the direction of Constantine who directed the Council of Nicaea that decided that Jesus was God. Yet I find it strange that you Jehovah's witnesses despise Constantine, but, accept his book as the word of God.
