What about him?
He is as he claimed... the son of God... He spoke the truth... and his words can be proven to be true IF one chooses to follow them... This can
not be said about Paul or the OT...
John 6:35New International Version (NIV)
35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
All of us came from Adam. Adam is the Son of God (Alpha) and Jesus is the Omega.
1 Corinthians 10
17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
Paul understood why Christ called himself the bread. We are the seed, just as Adam is the Father (DNA) of us all. Christ identified himself as Adam
in this verse. Just as Job identified the Redeemer as the one who caused the error in creation. He knew the Redeemer would be Adam.
25 I know that my redeemer[c] lives,
and that in the end he will stand on the earth.[d]
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet[e] in[f] my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
28 “If you say, ‘How we will hound him,
since the root of the trouble lies in him,[g]’
29 you should fear the sword yourselves;
for wrath will bring punishment by the sword,
and then you will know that there is judgment.
The root of the trouble came through Adam, the one who is the subject of the verses above. He is the same one called the LORD of the OT who
proclaimed Himself God, when he was actually the Son.
