Messengers of God Do Not Say that They Are God

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: Who is Jesus?

"But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set. 46If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me. John 5:45-6

It is a shame that Jesus couldn't tell us where Moses wrote about him.

The Jews were familiar with the Messianic prophecies. I already showed you the prophecy he was referring to (Deut.18:15).

In John 1:21 John the Baptist is asked who he is:

19Now this was John's testimony when the Jews of Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. 20He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, "I am not the Christ. 21They asked him, "Then who are you? Are you Elijah?"


He said, "I am not."
"Are you the Prophet?"
He answered, "No." (John 1:19-21)

Has you can see John was asked three separate questions and not two questions. Has you can see Jesus cannot fulfil both the messiah and the prophet like Moses roles together.

True, true. However, the Jews did not realize that the Prophet and the Messiah were one and the same. How can Muhammad be the prophet 'from their own brothers'? Muhammad was not Jewish! If Muhammad was the prophet then why do his teachings contradict the Messiah's?

Book of Revelations wasn't written by John the Apostle because it is believed that the Book of Revelations was written in 95 AD and by then John the Apostle would have been near the age of a hundred or dead. So it is believed that John of Patmos wrote the Book of Revelations.

It is believed? That is a conservative secular speculation. The writing styles of John's books are very similar.

I believe that Jesus was the Messenger of God.

Do you really think the Messenger of God would call himself God? Would the Messenger of God ask the Jews to put faith in him for their salvation? Would the Messenger of God lie like this? Jesus called himself God, he is either a liar, a madman, or the actual Son of God.

A messenger of God would not lie about something so extraordinary...

May God Bless You All
