Your Interpretation of the Bible is different of my interpretation of the Bible. I think there is no point carrying on debating you since we have different understanding of the Bible

We must both examine the context of the Hebrew Scriptures. The early Jewish leaders (the uncorrupt ones before the time of Jesus) believed that Isaiah 42 referred the Messiah and ONLY the Messiah in addition to Isaiah 53. Let's just simplify the debate. The Gospels, that is Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, make it very certain that Jesus was the Messiah and Son of God, who was God himself, and he died (not some other) died the Christ for our sins. The book of Acts (written by our doctor Luke) then tells us how Jesus was the Prophet foretold by Moses (though Jesus told us Moses prophesied about him yet never specified). The Gospels make it very clear that Jesus said that he was the Son of God while Jesus does not give us a definite answer otherwise.

We can spend any amount of time proving this or that point. However, experience is far better than facts.

I know that Jesus was the Son of God because I know him personally and he has changed my life. His blood has renewed the fellowship with God that was possible in the days of the Garden of Eden. I know that Jesus has said 'done' in concerning whether or not I go to Heaven or not.


"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) NIV

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26) NIV

The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. (Revelation 23:17) NIV

May God Bless You
