People's Bible Notes for John 10:34


Joh 10:34 Is it not written in your law. In Ps 82:6. I said, Ye are gods? It was there addressed to judges. Christ's argument is: If your law calls judges gods, why should I be held guilty of blasphemy for saying that I am the Son of God?

    Christians accept Jesus Christ as the son of God by faith. I accept the fact that I have a brain , actually, by faith. I have never SEEN my brain, but the proof is there, because my five senses, brain and heart life are alive! His miracles and our faith in his word are all we need. " Without faith, it is impossible to please Him! " Sir, does that answer your question?

    One of the biggest hurdlesof all is that Jesus,the Christ, is the Son of God. But why?Are we not Spirit as our essence. "The flesh profiteth nothing"Jesus stated plainly this truth because that was his "state of being" and what his miracles certified.As we know,the spirit is not subject to death,unless it is for Judgement of the Father. "Fear him who can cast into Hell, where there is only death

    Good, Good. Esv is beater, but.... whatever :) I have to use it for my school
  • Truthseeker
    If Jesus was part of a whole body God, then when he died, it necessitates the whole body to die, and we know among the attributes God, he doesn't die it befits him not to die, so he is either an independent body which negates the doctrine of trinity or he didn't die at all which negates the basis upon which Modern Christianity was built that he died for the salvation of Mankind. Rethink!!!
