He never claimed to be God
"In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins." -Colossians 1:14
Hebrews 9:22, "...without shedding of blood is no remission. (forgivness )"
“Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29
"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot."
-1st Peter 1:18,19
...and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1st John 1:7).
"The Ark of the Covenant was found in a cave 20 feet directly below the spot where Jesus was crucified. God intended for the blood of the Lamb to fall upon the Mercy Seat..."
"And so it was that God the Father had rent the rocks to make a way for His Son's blood to flow down from the spear-wound, through the newly formed fissure onto the very Mercy Seat itself. Now just think about this for a moment. Jeremiah had deposited the Ark in the cave some six centuries B.C., with absolutely no knowledge of the events which were to occur on Good Friday.
The Romans who hacked out the post-holes had absolutely no knowledge of what lay beneath their feet, nor that they were positioning the CENTRAL hole in exactly the right place. And until the Lord had died, there was no way for blood to trickle down because there was no crack. But these Amazing coincidences actually happened.
Yes, they ARE coincidences, because everything had to COINCIDE exactly for it to happen, but there was never any human design - it was entirely the work of God in Heaven, who knew the end from the beginning, and arranged for it to happen in that way.
THE ARK OF THE COVENANT
"As they began viewing the cells under the microscope, they saw cells dividing before their eyes! They could tell it was human blood, but "This blood is alive!"
"They couldn't believe what they were seeing! They continued with their tests and found the blood to be unique from any other human blood! "
"With tears in their eyes they asked, "Whose blood is this?" Mr. Wyatt replied, "It is the blood of your Messiah." Then they asked who the Messiah was, and they began wailing and shouting. No other male human being has ever had this same chromosome count! Christ's blood is alive and unique to prove His divinity to the world before He returns to this earth." Source
“The laminin protein molecule is the major component that makes up the extracellular matrix which is also called the basement membrane. These are the sheets of protein that form the substrate of all internal organs. Laminin assist in cell adhesion and binds other extracellular matrix components together.” The word ‘matrix’ traces back to the Hebrew word ‘ema’ which means mother and comes from the root word ‘em’ which means ‘glue’. Matrix is also etymologically connected to the word ‘madrigal.’ littleguyintheeye.wordpress.com...

Jesus is not god.
God is the son of man. A creation by men with the personality of a nut job.
There is a creator but the bible is not speaking of the true God. The bible speaks of man's interpretation of god. The true creator of this existence would reveal itself if it felt we were ready.
Stop believing the lie.
Jesus said unto them, "if God were your father, ye would love me, for I proceeded forth & came from God, neither came I of myself, but he sent me"
For example, David D. Swanson states: "Our knowledge of truth is most clearly revealed on the cross of Christ. And what holds the human body together? Laminin. And what does it look like? A cross. Coincidence? Some would say yes, but I think it is yet another way God reveals his glory to us. I think God is the one who holds all things together-our bodies-our world-our lives." Fazale Rana, a biochemist and apologist, disagrees with Giglio and instead argues that "Instead of pointing to superficial features of biomolecules such as the “cross-shaped” architecture of laminin, there are many more substantive ways to use biochemistry to argue for the necessity of a Creator."
Presumptuous is saying something like "for all I know" and yet trying to engage like you have some command of the material.
Let me guess, you are trying to bring me to an illogical answer to show me that my logic is not logical ?

Here is something new to think about. All the world's major religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Buddishim, Islam etc all share the one thing in common. They worship the same God. How they worship Him is just a matter of cultural and ethnic interpretation. Why can't all the world's religions just accept that? We should embrace and rejoice in each other's faiths. I do my best to embrace other faiths. If we could all do that then perhaps we might just get a glimpse of the Kingdom of Heaven Christ referred to.
Where & why do people conceive the notion that Jesus is God?
