If Jesus was God … - The Misunderstanding


How can God be unclean?

“How then can man be righteous before God? How can he who is born of woman be clean?” Job 25:4 RSV

If Jesus was born of a woman, he is unclean. How can you refer to God as unclean?

Why is Jesus being presented to himself?

“And when the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord” Luke 2:22 RSV

If Jesus is God, why is Jesus being presented to himself?

How can God be filled with fear and sorrow?

My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death …” Mark 14:34 NIV
And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.” Luke 22:44 NIV

Can a God be filled with sorrow? Can he be afraid/distressed of what’s going to happen next?

God needs an angel to give him strength?

“Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and gave him strength.” Luke 22:43 NRSV

Why does God need an angel to give him strength, can’t he get it himself?

How can God be tempted by Satan?

“He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.” Mark 1:13 NRSV

How can God be tempted by Satan?
“…for God cannot be tempted with evil and he himself tempts no one;” James 1:13 RSV

Is God not aware of the seasons of figs?

"The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry."

"Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs." Mark 11:12-13 NIV

How can a God be hungry? Surely he has control over his body and can control his hunger.
He went to see if the fig tree had fruits and when he approached it there was none. Wouldn’t God have known this beforehand and even know the seasons of the fruits which he created?

Is Jesus speaking to himself?

“… My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Matthew 27:46 RSV

Jesus is on the cross, who is he shouting out to? Himself?

If Jesus was God, why did he tell Satan to worship God and not himself?
"Jesus said to him, 'Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'" Matthew 4:10 NIV

Jesus tells us who to pray to - to the Father and not to Jesus:
”But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.Matthew 6:6 RSV
"Pray then like this: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name." Matthew 6:9 RSV

If Jesus was God why is he seated on the right hand of God? It does not say he is seated on the right hand of the father. These verses proves that Jesus is not part of God:
“So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.” Mark 16:19 RSV
“But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God Luke 22:69 NIV
“’You have said so,’ Jesus replied. ‘But I say to all of you: From now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.’” Matthew 26:64 NIV

Jesus has no authority over who sits on the right or left of him, so he is not God or coequal to God:
“Jesus said to them, ‘You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.’” Matthew 20:23 NIV

Jesus never said he was God <<< Prev   Next >>> God describes Himself
