Congrats, WUK. Curious why you didn't mention the earlier verses from John 8 (or did you, and I missed it?):
I would have liked to have seen my ante-Nicene author evidence countered with the writings of those deemed 'heretics.' If I was assigned the con
position, I would have countered the pro external evidence with the evidence of the authors who questioned Jesus' divinity. As they say, history is
written by the victors. Those who attested to Jesus' divinity were considered 'church fathers' while those who questioned it were labeled
'heretics.' I would have loved to have seen that issue brought up but it never was.
Never really saw the Thomas quote contested either because I did make a goof. Thomas only called Jesus God once- not twice. Sorry about that.
supposed limitations to Jesus' knowledge. The verse where Jesus states nobody knows the date of His return- not even Himself, being one example. Or
how he cried out on the cross about being forsaken. Lots of things that could have been used against my case but never were. I kept expecting to be
presented with them but they never were. Lucky me, I guess because that would have made me scramble.
