Did Jesus CLAIMED to be a God?

Did Jesus – peace and blessings of Almighty God be upon him – CLAIMED to be a God?

The answer is “NO”.

Now, when a person who didn’t claimed to be a God, Why wasting your time in proving a person as God, who himself didn’t do?

 

On the contrary, let me give you a very interesting and gleaming verse from the Bible, in which Jesus – peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him – himself gives the final knock out to all the beliefs of the people, concerning, whether declaring him as God or even putting him near to God.

 

In Matthew, Jesus – peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him – responded to one person, who calls upon him:

“And behold, one came up to him, saying, ‘O good master, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life (paradise)?’ And he said to him, ‘Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is God.'” Matthew 19:16-17 (Emphasis mine)

 

If he rejected being called “good” and stated that only God is truly good, he clearly implies that he is not God.

 

Notice here that, Jesus – peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him – becomes uncomfortable at being called as good. Yet, further, he justifies his uncomfortability by stating that Only God is good. This is a classic example of circular reasoning. We can imagine a conversation between Jesus – peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him – and a more critical questioner:

 

Questioner: “O good master, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life?”

Jesus: “Why callest thou me good?”

Questioner: “Why?! I mean, why can’t I call you good?

Jesus: “There is none good but one, that is God.”

 

Jesus – peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him – is making a very logical clearance over here:

-Don’t call me good, because, it is God who is to be called good.

-I am not good, because I am not God.

Simple logic …
