OK, so you are getting your idea from the Bible itself. You understand that the Bible is not going to be very...objective...when it comes to Jesus, right?<quoted text>
I have answered and will answer the question again,
Those who were supposedly very knowledgeable about the Scriptures,had the opportunity to try and discredit Jesus's claims that the Scriptures spoke of HIM, I cited you one example.
If you read the Scriptures,you will find other instances,where they could have challenged his claims and were unable to do so
They readily admitted his powers,which Jesus said came from the father.
They ,in turn,unable to cite Scriptures ,to contradict his claim,
simply attributed his powers as coming from the devil
It is all there.
That you want to look for excuses so as not to erode the basis for your beliefs,is not my problem to resolve.
At his trial,they had the perfect opportunity to disprove his claim,but never attempted to do so based on what is written in the Scriptures.
And No,,Psychics and prophets are not one and the same.
True Prophets claim they are being guided by God's spirit and their is criteria by which they can be judged.
Psychics do not make that claim and if they do,they are lying and the results will bear that out...
If someone did challenge Jesus's claims,the challenge was not based on the validity of what Scripture tell s ua about him
If you have evidence to the contrary,provide it
I don't care what the Bible says. I know for a fact that Jesus was not widely accepted as being genuine. There was a big tradition of guru-types in the ancient world, so lots of people assumed he was a wise man but few of them thought he was literally divine. The cult surrounding him grew up over time, after he was already dead.
This idea you have that nobody challenged him is a Bible story. You need to look outside the Bible for supporting evidence. If you cite some good scholarship supporting your claim then maybe I'll take it seriously but don't quote me Bible verses and claim they are true.
That's just dumb.
