I agree. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? John 10:34 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children
of the Most High. Psalm 82:6
Ye Are Gods
As Jesus was arrested and held [Illegally] by the high priest Caiaphas He [Jesus] was charged with blasphemy in that He claimed to be the Son Of The
Most High EL. In Jesus’ defense the scripture was quoted to the court as found in Psalms 82:6,7.
In this Psalms of Asaph 82, Asaph is lamenting to The Most High El as a prayer request of his [Asaph’s lack of understanding.]
(1) A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
(2) How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
(3) Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
(4) Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
(5) They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
(6) I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
(7) But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
(8) Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
Asaph is saying “I have said that ye are gods [referring to the princes and governors of the Kingdom]. But this is not to say that these men are
Gods because there is but one God and that is The Most High EL.
Asaph states - in verse 6 and 7 “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High But ye shall die like men, and fall like
one of the princes.”
By this law of King David it is understood that The Most High El does regard some as His sons and as His gods of authority in his kingdom.
Is it not said the same to Moses ?
Exodus _7:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.
Was not Moses then a son of the Most High before David had a breath?
(33) The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
(34) Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
(35) If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
(360 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
This then was the defense of Jesus as He said “Is it not written in your law”, [referencing Asaph’s Psalm] I said Ye are gods? If The Most High
called the servants of David gods then the law of David cannot be broken. Then Jesus pricked their minds in reminding these accusers that He [Jesus]
was not blaspheming The Most High EL in claiming to be a servant or son of The Most High. Indeed He was a son of God and being a servant of God was a
god by the law of David.
Jesus was acquitted by over 50% of the Sanhedrin of the charge of blasphemy but was then recharged to Pontus Pilate of sedition to Rome.
Now it is often repeated here on ATS by those who insist upon citing verses out of contextual study to meet their understanding. This particular
example has been repeated numerous times and has been ignored too often. I urge you to study and realize the misinformation you garner in this type
of posting. Your inferences are very damaging to others when you do this.
