The problem though is that Jews KNEW/KNOW that man cannot be God.

I will admit to you right now that your post is too long to read. I do not believe that writing books back and forth to each other is valuable. I apologize because you spent a lot of time on both your posts and I am now making one of them a waste of time. I hate doing that to you, but doing otherwise would be a waste of my time. I have satisfied myself from your first post that your concerns are not mine. The brief look I took at your response to the idea that Yeshua did not exalt Himself demonstrated that my concerns are not yours. Maybe there was something in the post I skipped that would convince me that you had a better grasp on who Yeshua is than I do, but I'm going to take the chance that there wasn't.

I will only comment on the above quoted line. I also know that a man cannot be G-d.

But I will not limit G-d to say that He cannot be a man.

How convenient for you to just dismiss my post. Don't refute it. Don't support your own thoughts, just say my post is of no concern to you, and then admit to not reading it! lol I outlined just why Jesus didn't fulfill the prophecies and you pretend they are not there!

But a waste of time? No, I don't consider my post a waste of time. Others may not have such thick scales over their eyes.... and some people may show their love of God by seeking the truth, no matter where that truth takes them.

Nowhere does the Jewish Bible or Prophets say that the Messiah would be a god or God-like. The very idea that God would take on human form is repulsive to Jews because it contradicts the concept of God as being above and beyond the limitations of the human body and situation.

Judaism believes that God is eternal, above and beyond time. God cannot be born, He cannot die, He cannot suffer, He can not "become flesh," nor can He be divided into sections ("Father, Son, and Holy Ghost"). These are pagan notions. Certainly no "God" or "Son of God" could have called out on the cross, as Jesus is supposed to have said, "My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?" After all if Jesus was God, then he abandoned himself??? Makes no sense.

How difficult would it be for a God to live according the Law? It would not be difficult at all. But, how difficult is it for a 'man' to live according to the Law? Much harder; man has to try, and work at it.


I hope this post is SHORT enough for you!
