And this is the most ignored, the least recited and the least quoted verse, G_O_D, which confirms that he was not God.<quoted text>
Good point. It is quite possible that Jesus believed himself to be the Messiah until he died, at which point HE would have realized he wasn't. Makes sense as the earliest sources claim his last words were " My God! My God! Why have you abandoned me." Makes more sense from a Jewish perspective than the Christian apoogetics that try to make it "proof He was God."
"New Living Translation (©2007)
And this is the way to have eternal life--to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth."
The Church and the presbyters do not like this verse at all.
