      Jesus is the son of god John 17:3 and John 20:17, 14:23, 14:28. There are many more. Read John 17. Jesus was tormented because of what he faced, death. He prayed to his father for help.

      According to the laws of genetics, the biblical Jesus was half human and half God, because half of his DNA came from Mary, and the other half came from God.

      My research led me to conclude that he was probably neither.
      No proof of his existence at all.
      The Jesus story came thousands of years before. smile

      Son of God.  There is a term that applies called Divine Investiture.  The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three separate and distinct individuals yet they are one in purpose - to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.  This is how the Son can be referred to as the Father.  Also, Jesus Christ is our "father" as to the author of our redemption and salvation.  We are "purchased" by Him and to Him are we indebted.  Through the Eternal Father, Jesus Christ receives his authority and power.  The three work in concert.

      There is no secret to it.  Jesus did not pray to himself, nor did he exhort others to pray to a nameless sky.  It wasn't a cloud or bird that Jesus asked "Why hast thou forsaken me?"  When Jesus proclaimed that the Father was in him he knew of his role in the Godhead and was invoking the simple precept of Divine Investiture.

      God, the Eternal Father is our God whom we acknowledge along with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.  Beyond that are the line of Gods that have also proven themselves worthy in their own respective mortalities.  Through the Infinite Atonement, Jesus Christ, we are reconciled to God and have the agency and opportunity to return back into His presence to receive eternal life.  The Holy Spirit, however, does not yet have a body of flesh and bone.  His function is to bear witness to the hearts and minds of man the divinity of the Father and the Son.

    Which Christian faith? Growing up, he was son of God. I was told by a preacher recently, he was God, in third. The trinity is supposedly, now just God. He's all three. But, at his right hand in heaven. Oh yeah, and that the 10 commandments were changed with him becoming human as christ. Again, which denomination? The sane?

    The question is grammatically incorrect.
    It should read "IS Jesus. . . ."
    Your question makes it PAST tense, but He is present tense.

    Yes, Jesus IS Son of God, Yes, Jesus is God, and Yes, Jesus is human.

                You don't need to apologise. I take no offence.
                I am trying to help you see Him as He is.
                Yes He WAS a historical figure, but so what? It doesn't help you today.
                So, if you truly want to understand Him from a Christian poit of view, I gave you that point of view.

    Jesus is the "DAYSMAN." He is the only one. Job had wished or asked for a daysman a lon g time before Jesus was born. Job 9:33  Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both.


    A daysman is one who is human enough to touch man and godly enough to touch God. Remember that no man can see the face of God and live, but Jesus is able to do it. This mnakes Jesus man and God both at the same time.

          Its termed as enlightenment in English ,Samadhi in Hindi, Satori in Japanese etc

          I gained enlightenment in the middle of the the Atlantic Ocean ,died became the Light or god and then came back.

          This experience has happened with many humans the saints, sages, prophets and mystics in all parts of the world .

          Religions are based on the enlightened  ones teachings, they show you the path to walk and one deeds to walk that path.

          Saying this prophet and religion is the greatest shows a complete lack of understanding of the prophets and god. Importance is been given to the messenger than the message.

          Jesus couldnt be clearer when he said "I tell ye you are all gods or the kingdom of god is within." He also showed the way by saying one needs to meditate or when thy eye be single.

          This is the way for ones salvation .

    Hi friends

    Jesus was never a god as Mary was never a wife of god. Jesus was never a son of god as Mary was not a wife of god.

    Jesus himself said he was Son of Man; that is correct he was one of the prefect men of the Creator- God Allah YHWH; called Messengers Prophets. He himself put himself to the resemblance of Jonah; and Jonah was only a Messenger Prophet of God Allah YHWH.

          God originally created man sinless.  However, he also gave us a free will to choose righteous or sin.  It was by an act of choice that sin was committed.  It was through that act of committing sin that all men who followed were under the penalty of sin - which is death.  God created the law - the penalty of sin is death - it is by choosing to commit sin that mankind is subject to the law.  Our condemnation is by our actions not predetermined by Jesus as punishment as in your picture.

        Actually it is based on many things written. Did you know that people bowed to Jersus and worshipped Him in the NT?

        If Jesus was only a prophet and allowed them to worship Him, He would be dead. There are many scriptures which show who Jesus really is.

          When the people were grateful they did this.
          It happened to Daniel.

          Daniel 2:46
          Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.

          However please read:
          Matthew 4

          10. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve

    Our minds are very simplistic to that of the the eternal life. We will never really understand it we just have to believe. Faith is what makes us believe.

    Jesus was sent to earth in human form.

    Jesus is 3 in one, he is God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

    I am a true believer. I like to think that when we die we will have a better life and be reunited with family members who have passed on.

    Just my opinion.

    Faith gets me through many tough times in my life what would I do without it.
