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 10:33
Many people who deny the Deity of Christ will say “The Bible never said Jesus is God” or they say “Jesus never claimed to be God” well they must have skipped over this verse or chapter. Here the Religious Leaders are specifically seeking to kill Jesus because he claimed to be God
One of the big issues is people don’t understand what being the Messiah or Son of God means. Meaning call Jesus “Christ” without thinking about it, but they don’t understand what a huge title like “Christ” (Messiah) means. That is the fulfillment of God becoming Flesh and ruling on Earth. This is exactly what the Jews believed, exactly why they wanted to kill Jesus
“I and the Father are one.” John 10:30
Now if we back up a little, this is what Jesus said to the Jews before they became enraged and ready to kill him. Jesus and God are One, think about that! That’s like me saying I am equal to God. Obviously, you would say I’m a worthless sinner and cant even be in the presence of God
However Jesus was God in the Flesh, Sinless, Holy of Holies. He is able because he is One with the Father. Now our human minds kick in, we try to make logic of this all and determine this cant be! Do you really think we are capable of comprehending the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth?
Bow down before your Lord and God , repent and beg for mercy, for loving kindness endures forever Amen!
