Your "answer" causes more questions.

a reply to: Malocchio The answer is found in John 1
John 1 King James Version (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
He is God.
He also states elsewhwere the " Now that you have seen me, you have seen the Father.
And " I and the Father are one"
Transfiguration shows omnipotence.
Worship by Angels shows his authority
Walking on water and lifting into the clouds shows his power over natural laws.
Commanding the sea with results also shows authority

a reply to: Malocchio"I don't believe that Christianity concurs. " That is the most ignorant statement I have ever witnessed!
If you choose to know the truth and do your research, then you will find out that the term Christian, simply means a possession of Christ!
I for one am one! And your ignorance on the subject doesn't in any way have an effect on reality, but simply on your own ignorance of the facts of the matter!

Jesus is not a symbol for an individual - Jesus 'the son of God' is what is appearing - what is appearing is the light - it appears as sensation.
But words and thoughts speak and tell stories - stories about other times and places which do not exist.
This that is here is the son of God. But it is easy to get lost in stories or believe that God or the son of God is somewhere or some when else.

And if God has a Son well he must have a wife, right? In order to make a son you first need to have sex , does God have sex?
The expression “Son of God” primarily identifies Christ Jesus. Others referred to as “son(s) of God” include intelligent spirit creatures produced by God, the man Adam before he sinned, and humans with whom God has dealt on the basis of covenant relationship.
27 Finally, the woman died. 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?”
29 Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. 30 At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
4 “Haven’t you read the Scriptures?” Jesus replied. “They record that from the beginning ‘God made them male and female.” 5 And he said, “‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’ 6 Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.”
He created them male and female; and blessed them: and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

In marriage man and woman return to the state that Adam was created in. They are male and female acting as one flesh/spirit, metaphorically of course.
The word “servant” occurs many times in the book of Isaiah. It occasionally designates the prophet himself. (Isa. 20:3; 44:26) Sometimes it is applied to the whole nation of Israel, or Jacob. (Isa. 41:8, 9; 44:1, 2, 21) But what of the outstanding prophecies regarding the Servant recorded in Isaiah chapters 42, 49, 50, 52, and 53? The Christian Greek Scriptures leave us in no doubt as to the identity of the Servant of Jehovah described in those chapters. Interestingly, the Ethiopian official mentioned in the book of Acts was reading one of these prophecies when Philip the evangelizer was directed by the spirit to approach him. The official, having read the Bible passage that we now find at Isaiah 53:7, 8, asked Philip: “I beg you, About whom does the prophet say this? About himself or about some other man?” Philip lost no time in explaining that Isaiah spoke about the Messiah, Jesus.—Acts 8:26-35.
