In fact the very idea of "fully man fully God" is ALIEN to the Israelite religion
SO WHAT? Christians aren't jews.
Find me ONE verse where Jesus says directly "I am God", and then we can talk about Islam becoming irrelevant.
You've already been shown all this. Islam is irrelevant. Here AGAIN are just a few -
Jesus Himself claimed the "I am' title ... John 8:58
Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM." The
Jews knew He was claiming the God title, because they immediately tried to stone him for blasphemy. (see John 8:24; 58; 13:19 and 18:5-6 and John
8:58) This is from the Old Testament - And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM
has sent me to you.’ ”
Jesus Himself said He came down from heaven.
John 6:51:"I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever;"
Jews believe God alone gives life - Jesus Himself said He is life -
John 11:25: Jesus said to her, "I AM the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
God the Father Himself testifies -
This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased" (Matt. 3:17 )
For those who buy into Revelation
The final proof of Jesus’ divinity we will consider can be found in the last two chapters of the book of Revelation. According to Revelation
21:6-7, Almighty God reveals himself to us in plain terms: "And he said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the
end. To the thirsty I will give from the fountain of the water of life without payment. He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his
God and he shall be my son.’"
And he said to me, "These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his
servants what must soon take place . . . I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end . . . I Jesus have sent my
angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star."
He claimed to be God. The Jews tried to kill Him for it. "The Jews answered Him (Jesus), 'For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy;
and because You, being a man, make yourself out to be God.'
” (John 10:33)
More of Jesus Own words -
“I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30)
“…that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father." (John 10:38)
“…He who has seen Me has seen the Father.” (John 14:9)
Jesus Claims to be God
During Christ's trial, the chief priests asked Him point blank, "Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God." And He said,
• "I am." (Mark 14:60-62)
• "Yes, it is as you say." (Matt. 26: 63-65)
• "You are right in saying I am." (Luke 22:67-70)
These are all ways of saying the same thing, written by different authors.
Jesus says in John 10:11-18 that he is the Good Shepherd. When you read this passage along with Ezekiel 34:1-16, you can see that Jesus was
identifying Himself with God, who pronounced Himself Shepherd over Israel . The Jewish people, being an agrarian and shepherding society, knew and
dearly loved this section of the Old Testament because God was using a metaphor they lived every day. So when Jesus said, "I am the Good Shepherd,"
and that whole John passage so clearly parallels the Ezekiel passage, there was no doubt that He was claiming to be God.
John 16:28. "I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father." What Christ is saying here
is that he existed along with the Father before being born. He "entered the world" by wrapping Himself in human flesh and being born as a baby.
He grew up, fulfilled His mission/ministry, was crucified and raised from the dead (all part of the "mission") and then left the world to go back to
the Father in heaven, where He is now seated at the right hand of God (the place of honor). He is the only person who ever existed before conception.
That Christ was in a "pre-incarnate state" means that He is God.
Worship belongs to God alone ... and the angels of God worshipped Jesus.
They know He is God.
LIKE I SAID .. ISLAM IS IRRELEVANT.
The attempt by Muhammad to water down Jesus was done to invent his own
religion/political party. He had to try to make Jesus just another 'prophet'.
Otherwise, who'd want fictional Islam when they could actually have God Himself.
Christianity is on par with Hinduism - a religion that seems to blur the lines between man and divinity.
Wrong (again). Christianity says humans are not God and never become God.
Jesus was God who became man. BIG DIFFERENCE.
