  • I must comment on Anthony Smith assumption of Jesus being God in the flesh. First of all when the angel anounced the Mary about having her first child, he proclaimed what the name of the child would be and who the father was. Jesus and Son of the most high. Luke 1:31,32. Second, no one has seen God at anytime as a human. Jn.1:18. Jesus has seen the Father, but not in his freshly state. Jn.17:5. The best that Jesus 's disciples could do when they wanted to see the Father was right in front of them, Jesus, Gods representative. Remember, God is spirit.
