Opening up a can of worms


So for the sake of finding Truth, I’m going to open up a can of worms.

We often say Jesus is God, however what if that is incorrect.

1 James 1:13 says “13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.”

Matthew 4:1 “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.”

Just as simple as that, however I would like to get some other views on the topic. Thoughts?


mik - that can of worms has been long opened and they are still wriggling. I think the Christology category in this forum has a number of threads devoted to this subject. You may find that contributing to one of those threads will liven up the subject a bit.
Or not; it’s up to you!!

Here’s one: Is Jesus God or What?
Another: Did Christ Pre-exist?
One more: Jesus' divinity from 3 synoptic texts

Anyway, you will see what direction the thinking has taken us, and hopefully you can contribute something.

Thanks Dave,

Didn’t realise those were posts - I will for sure put my 2 cents in!
