so the previous prophets were called gods in OT? Right?
So Jesus pbuh is sort of saying "Come on! you called others before me gods and you are saying that its blasphemy if i am called son of God? Why dont
you drop it and accept that i am send by God based on things i do and just listen to me!"
Something like that. Jesus was speaking to whoever was responsible for "judging" people, most likely the appointed judges.
Jesus was quoting the Old Testament here again.
1 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.
