John 10....Jesus claims to be God ::::: ------------- 30 I and my Father are one. 31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? 33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
Both. He often refered to God as 'my Father' but he also said 'My Father and I are One' and 'I am One with the Lord'. - My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one." (John 10:29, 30)
NONE. These were attributes imposed upon Jesus by designing impostors, and conniving clergy, like Paul and John. Even if Jesus ever pretended to be any of these (of which there is no authentic evidence), then the best thing that can be said of Jesus is that, he was honestly mistaken. Even two principle gospel writers tried to prove Jesus' human origin by providing his genealogy, as immensely contradictory as they are, through Joseph upto David.
The test is too simple though! If Jesus was a god, he could not have died; if Jesus was a man, he could not have redeemed.
he never said he was messiah nor did he say savior nor Christ, nor anything. he said he was god on many occasions and a few times called god father. He was in fact one with god in that he is 1/3 in the trinity god son and holy ghost. Jesus is now known as the physical embodiment of the holy ghost but that is a recent thing. He has claimed to be god, but this may be an exaggeration which he is known for. there is a verse where he told his over 100 disciples that in order to follow him they must disown their mother and father. basically this is now a wedding reference but disown and dishonor were similar then and only the 13 understood the exaggeration.
In the Gospel of John, Jesus referred to Himself as the "Son" Who was "sent" from the Father (John 3:16-17; 5:23; 6:40; 10:36). Clearly, this is a special claim. On one of those occasions, Jesus based His authority to heal on the Sabbath on the fact that His Father was working. This infuriated some of the Jews. John explained: "Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God" (John 5:18). To identify Jesus as the Son of God is to acknowledge His genealogical connection to Israel, His right to the throne of David, and His unparalleled nearness to God. To confess that Jesus is the Son of God is to declare as true Jesus' claim: "He who has seen me has seen the Father" (John 14:9).
None. I guess he could have one been a prophet, but he was a false one. He claims to be god, which is clearly idolatry, and blasphemy. The Jews were right to stone him, like bettyeckles had in her quote. Why do Christians completely ignore the fact that by saying he and god were the same it is clearly against the Old Testament?
