Hello guys please clarify your answer i dont know how do you threat Jesus Christ is he a God or he is a prophet? please answer only one if you answer he is God so prove it and if he is a prophet also prove it.. I think you know this that Jesus christ is also praying so if he is a part of God or body of god so he dont need to pray right? he is praying so it means the one who is praying are different to the one whom being prayed. is he God or Prophet prove it?

The burden of proof lies with those who make a positive assertion. The failure of those who would assert he was a God or a Prophet to even prove the existence of Yhvh or Allah exist in the first place is sufficient support for my position, as the non-existent can produce neither Avatars nor Prophets.;)

The first chapter of the Gospel of John tells us that Jesus, the Word of God in the flesh, is God. Since Jesus is God, of course He's going to know the future and did reveal something of the future (i.e. Matthew 24). As a human being, praying is how Jesus spoke with His heavenly Father. The only proof I can offer is from the Bible: Deuteronomy 18:15-19, and Matthew 21:11.

You mean jesus is God so he is praying to his self he is talking to his self? he is asking help to his self? Jesus spoke with his heavenly Father so it means Jesus and Father are two not one.. please clarify it Jesus spoke with his heavenly Father or Jesus spoke with his God? you know in bible instead of God they just use Father as God.. Jesus Father is not his real father am i right? because Father of Jesus is also our Father. in other words Bible only use Father words instead of God. if you say God is the father of Jesus so it means there are many God. Jesus Mother is Maria Jesus Father is God so they are family.. I think Jesus have a Mother with out Father right? Jesus teach only that worship only one god that is the God from Heaven. I the one talking and at the heaven are one?

I confess I don't understand it, but there is one God with three functions: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ who came to earth in the flesh), and God the Holy Spirit. God the Father is like an architect, the one with the plan. Jesus the Son fulfills the plan. The Holy Spirit is the force that is used to complete the task. Because man cannot see the face of God and live (see Exodus 33:20), it was necessary for Him to come to earth in the form of a human being. Because man sinned against God, man had to atone for the sins of man. The problem is a perfect man without sin had to be the atoning sacrifice for man's sins and all of mankind had sinned. That's why God came to earth in human form (Jesus) and why He was born of a virgin - He was the only human without sin, so could atone for our sins. Now instead of having God in the flesh here with us, we have the power of God, the Holy Spirit. Think of God like identical triplets. Identical triplets are from one seed that splits twice making three beings. There are three individual persons who came from one source. That is what God is, three functions in one being.

By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth....For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast. Jesus is the word of the Lord.The Holy Spirit is the one who complete the task. Why did Jesus prayed to his Father ? Probably because one of the main reasons for why He came here was to teach us what to do and how to do it ?

So jesus is Son of God so he is God. did you read some in bible mention that adan is son of god, moses is son of god, abraham is son of god.. fallow the teaching of Jesus so you will become son of god.. all of as is son of god. SO IT MEANS WE ARE ALL GODS BECAUSE WE ARE ALL SON OF GOD.

Yet it writes in the bible that we are all gods. "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High." But unlike Jesus we are created in His image and likeness.

Okay, I do not know how to say this but you want an answer to be chosen as either prophet or God? I am a Roman Catholic and from what I have been taught, Jesus is part of the Holy Trinity. The three divine persons of God which includes the Father, Son who is in the person of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Sorry to disappoint you but I have to tell you that Jesus is a prophet and a God. I guessed I have already proven why he is God and for him being a prophet. He preached and taught about God. You would have to read the bible if you want to know more and get into details.

A reference to the Trinity - the "Three Heavenly Witnesses" - can be found in the King James Bible, which was first published in 1611. The reference (1 John 5-7) is widely regarded as fraudulent - it first surfaced in the Latin translation of the Bible in the 5th century - and has been described as a "lie to the glory of God". I believe it has been removed from most modern translations of the Bible.

"The reference (1 John 5-7) is widely regarded as fraudulent" What does widely regarded as fraudulent means ? Considering the number of christians what does "widely regarded" means ?

Looking at the story of Jesus from a historical perspective requires you to take the approach that Thomas Jefferson took when he produced his vision of the Bible. You have to strip away the supernatural and paranormal parts of the story and are left with a Jesus that is believable and convincing. This is the Jesus, the profound teacher that probably walked the earth. He was neither god or prophet. He was a great teacher.

"some people say that Jesus is God because he has a supernatural power right?" I don't say any of the above. If you recognize that the Bible, Qur'an and the Torah are political texts written with an agenda in mind you come to realize that they were a hard sell. To be accepted at the time of their writing the had to include players with supernatural powers because the religions they were competing against all featured leading players with these powers.

The original gospel - called Q by scholars, but no longer extant - was a sayings gospel. In other words, it contained only the teachings of Jesus, without any of the miraculous narrative we find in the later, canonical gospels. Is that a fact or a hypothesis ?

Jesus is the son of God. He was sent by God to save us from our sins. He is also a prophet because thru Jesus the word of God was sent to the nation. If you know where you stand no need for you to ask who Jesus and who God is.

To stowyk: Yes they are both. It would really be hard for them to believe because they don't know who God is and they don't have a strong faith in God. To Jhovarie: Yes, they are one The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is praying because he wants us to show that there is God.

I treated Jesus as a "Son of God. There is saying if you see Jesus you already saw God. He is not a prophet somewhat he is a savior. Our God sent him just to save all mankind from sins. God allows his son to be human, that's the only way How God show to his creation how deeply love them with unconditional love. Through his son Jesus, he experienced Human thing except from sin. His Human, flesh and blood. The difference between Jesus and Humans prayer is Jesus pray directly to his father, intently and sincerely without a doubt in his mind.
