.....and here is why the Scripture is said 'not to be debated.' As many times as I have had to review and restate the truth about the Truth, here we are again, almost as if we are in the room when Pilate was interrogating Yeshua as to the Truth Yeshua was presenting in a room of unbelievers, including the high Jewish leadership who sought His death to suite their own religious determinations of who they thought He was. Was their blood not cold as they prodded and cajoled Pilate to execute Yeshua for their religious misdeeds and thoughts against the One the Scriptures screamed at them in witness of Who He is? We'll attempt to address both your comment sets here.
Let us take your attempt to be analogous about the word being made flesh-εν αρχη ην ο λογος και ο λογος ην προς τον θεον και θεος ην ο λογος ; ουτος ην εν αρχη προς τον θεον!
What we have here is that Yeshua was in the beginning with God; for He is called the Word here. God did not occupy the person of Adam, but fellowshipped with him as the greatest part of His Creation. He (Adam) is called the first man. Yeshua became human through the virgin birth, and due to His 'special' birth, was born sinless, sharing still His Deity as an equal part of the Godhead. It is/was the only way to achieve the Spiritual credentials to become the final sacrifice for our sins. 1Cor 15:45) Thus it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being"; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
Have you read what James is saying 4:7): 'Submit yourselves to God'...only then can we resist the Adversary.......8) 'get closer to God, and He will respond in closeness to you,' remembering the context; that our closeness is by being submitted to the Word of the LORD.
We'll let it rest there.........

Submitting....
