It is quite strange to learn that Christianity is the only religion who believes in Jesus Christ as the son of god. Although Muslims and Jews alike believe in a God, the idea that Jesus is the Son of God obviously did not originate from them. Even suprisingly, Jesus Christ was never been mentioned ever in the old testament perse nor even in other holy scriptures outside christianity as the son of god.
So "Who added Jesus Christ in the new testament?" Is Jesus really the Son of God?".
In Matthew 26:64, Jesus the Christ admitted he was the son of man….In John 10:29-30, Jesus admitted he was God himself….However, there is no passage in the bible that speaks about Jesus admitting he is the Son of God.
In Matthew 3:17 and Mark 1:11, Jesus never admitted here that he was the son of god, but some "voice from heaven" (something supernatural) proclaimed the title. The voice could or could not be his divine father. But assuming it was his father, this does not mean he was the son. The words "father" and "son" may have double meanings like when someone prays to the divine god or Father.
Hebrew 7:3 does not pertain to Jesus but Melchizedek who was also believed to be the son of god.
John 1:1-14, where the verses are poetic in nature, is believed to be a part Christological hymn. These verses are simply testimony by john and not by god (This again can be possibly falsified).
All these verse show that Jesus himself never ever proclaimed that he is the son of god. It was the people that surrounds him; the Pharisees, his disciples, the soldiers, who labeled Jesus as the son of god. So there was no concrete evidence that Christ admitted he is the son of god.
Just like in Matthew 26:63 -- "But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest said to him: I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us if thou be the Christ the Son of God." ( the high priest asked him if he was the son of god).
I thought Jesus will admit from here that he is the son of god, but surprisingly reading the next verse below, HE DID NOT !
Matthew 26:64 -- Jesus saith to him: Thou hast said it. Nevertheless I say to you, hereafter you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of the power of God and coming in the clouds of heaven. (Jesus simply said "you said it, not me").
It is true Jesus proclaimed God as his father, but this does not mean that he is the "parental or biological" father. This could be like someone who is praying to god. He might be saying "Father (which means god or jesus) forgive me for my sins ...." Or, when someone goes to the confessionary, one says "Blessed me father (which could mean priest or god) for I have sinned, ....".
John 10:36 Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, 'I am God's Son'?
Here in this verse, Jesus is simply suggesting that he can be the Son of God and/or the Son of Man. Either Joseph is his father, or he is of divine descend.
In John 10:22-42, Jesus was simply saying what other people say about him. It was their impressions. Jesus did not declare he was the son of god but he simply reiterated what other people thought of him ( you said ...."I am the son of god?").....And take note ......his statement was in question form....Hence, no doubt.... he is a man and he is a god .... but not the son of god.
Romans 1:4.....He was "declared to be the Son of God with power ...according to the Spirit of holiness...by the resurrection from the dead"...
There is no doubt that Jesus is man and god....However there is no verse in the bible that speaks Jesus admitted he is the son of god. Could it be because Jesus knew he IS NOT the son of god, and since he did not admit this title, even once in the bible, then obviously he, the church or the biblical writers, is hiding a dark secret about this man.
Who is this Man? Who is the Son of God?
He made blind men see, raised the dead and walked on water. Three miracles when interpreted literally could be taken to be true . But they can also be interpreted allegorically. The story of the blind men could be a lesson for people to see blessings surrounding them. The story of raising the dead could be interpreted as an awakening for those in a spiritual sleep. And the parable of walking on the water could be the power of will - that man can do things that are unusual or uncommon compared to the normal.
The title Son of God was deliberately attached as a label by the people that surround him and not by Jesus himself. Here are some more verses that support this claim.
Matthew 4:6 "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. The devil tempting Jesus.
Matthew 8:29 "What do you want with us, Son of God?" they shouted. The demons knew he is the Son of God.
Matthew 14:32-33 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying "Truly you are the Son of God."
Matthew 26:63-64 The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God." "Yes, it is as you say, "Jesus replied.
Matthew 16:15-17 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but my Father in heaven."
Matthew 11:27All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
John 3:16 says " For God so love the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have ever lasting life ".
In reading the bible, remember that these are personal accounts of the writers: The gospel according to John or the gospel according to Luke.....and not according to God or Jesus himself. Jesus never wrote the bible. They are simply personal accounts and interpretations written by ancient scribes. And these writers are simply telling the story of man name Jesus. They are simply story telling.
What does .... according to John......mean? Does this mean someone is writing about John's accounts or it was john who is telling his own accounts?
The bible itself was translated several times from the time it was compiled into a single book. There are 50 biblical scholars commissioned by the Vatican church to study and translate the bible. They even discovered from their research that the gospel of John was quite different from the three synoptic gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke. They said that John"s gospel was highly symbolic.
YAHWEH, a name for god, is derived from YHWH.
Scholars even said that this four letter word could not even be pronounced since they are simply letters without vowels and therefore could mean anything at all.
ELOHIM is a hebrew word which is plural for EL.
In genesis 1, translated to hebrew: "In beginning God", the third word is ELOHIM which means Gods (plural of God). When the universe was being created there were TWO GODS at least working together.
From The Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets:
Yahweh, Hebrew name of God, was a vocalization of the Tetragrammaton. It was also rendered Yah, Yahu, Jahveh, Jahi, or Jehovah, and has been related to the name of the Canaanite moon deity Yareah, possibly a female or androgynous form. A male Yahweh was married to the Canaanite mother goddess Anat at Elephantine. .......Jahi was also a very ancient Goddess, appearing in Persian scriptures as the amker and seducer of the first man. Like many other Creatresses, she mated with the primal serpent; she also gave the menstrual "blood of life" to Eve.
Elohim, Hebrew plural word meaning "the goddesss and gods," though every time it appeared in a Bible text it was translated simply "God". In the original manuscripts of the book of Genesis, Yahweh was only one of the elohim. Sometimes the singular form was taken as a name, e.g. the Phoenician bull-god called simply El, "the god." Medieval wizards thought Elohim was one of the magical secret names of God; or, at times, it was taken to be the name of a devil.
Also, Elohim could be interpreted as God The father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Faith groups usually pray to the Holy Spirit during baptismal which signifies devotion to the almighty father. They pray to Jesus on christmas in celebration of his birth. They even pray to Saint Mary, Mother of Jesus during Immaculate Conception feast. Although Christians claimed that they worship only One God, in reality they actually worship several gods- both immortals and mortals alike.
In Leviticus 24:13-16 - If you deny one of the gods or immortals you are committing blasphemy and blasphemers are stoned to death…..In Matthew 12:31-32 - it is worst if you deny the Holy Spirit. God will not forgive you ....EVER.
Excerpt: In the Beginning Man Created God by Joey Lawsin
Joey Lawsin describes himself as an independent thinker, a percentist - a 100% realist who strictly abandons the concept of "exceptions to the rules". His main research aims to discover the ultimate solution underlying how abstract ideas are transformed to physical realities. Focusing on the hows and whys, he made important discoveries on why things are dualpaired, how things are inlearned, why things have boundaries or shapes, what is intelligence, why we don't exist at all, how everything programs itself, why the universe is a living organism, how vitalic materials and systemic instructions gave birth to Viegenesis, why is energy the language of nature, and how every single idea known to man originated from nature.
Some thoughts correlated to his book are referenced here:
1. Jesus never claimed he was the “Son of God”
2. Creation does not need a Creator to create
3. Judaism believes in God; Christianity believes the Son
4. Why the Old Testament is the antithesis of the New Testament
5. The Conspiracy between Constantine and Vatican Papacy
6. Ancient origin of the words “Son of God”
7. Civilizations – the Scientific and Biblical Comparison
8. Who are the Christians? Who are the Jews?
