First of all, Jesus is not God. He never stated this and the Bible doesn't either. Such a belief makes Christ less approachable which is not a good thing to do. Division is the mark of ego (self-concern), not Love.
Jesus is a child of God just as we inherently are. But why would I choose him?
At first, I was born into a family of Southern Baptists. At age 9, I rejected the harsh teachings and dogma of my grandfather's church. It did not seem to be filled with the love of which Christ spoke. It was all about hell and damnation.
I looked at other religions. I explored and stayed awhile in Scientology, experiencing great spiritual breakthroughs. But after 26 years there, I realized that I had bumped into a "ceiling." Despite all the benefits, spiritually, Scientology seemed filled with too much ego -- self-centeredness.
Later, I became a Buddhist, married a Buddhist, traveled to Thailand and even studied in Los Angeles under a renowned Tibetan Buddhist monk. I learned a lot, but did not have nearly the same spiritual breakthroughs.
I also studied Kabbalah -- the authentic kind, not the New Age, Hollywood perversion. I learned that Kabbalists wrote the Bible. In my own research, I even discovered that their "Tree of Life" matrix was embedded in 2 chapters of Genesis. This seemed to make Kabbalah the superior spiritual philosophy of Jews and Christians, for they truly understood the secrets of the Bible.
But I came back to Christianity a new person. I remembered that Buddha had said that a greater teacher than he would come in the West. He would have red hair. We don't know the color of Christ's hair, but red is not unheard of amongst Jews. Buddha lived 500 years before Christ. How could he know?
I had wondered why this teacher would be considered greater. Then, the answer came to me. Buddha had reached everlasting life in one lifetime. He had reached this enlightened state only recently, but there was someone else who had been there for quite some time -- someone who would descend back to Earth in order to rescue his brothers.
But I don't regret all that I have learned from others. Their lessons helped me to see the spiritual realm more clearly. They helped me open my humility to the Holy Spirit. All of the other teachers who had reached enlightenment were babies. Christ was mature in his enlightened state. This alone made Christ seem the obvious choice.
