Jesus said He absolutely was God and He kept saying it, though God's word says He didn't consider equality with God something to be grasped so He was very humble and modest about it bc he made Himself into a servant, but He didn't deny that He was but spoke that truth. Stick to God's word, the simple truth. In JOHN 1 He says in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word WAS God. That the word was MADE FLESH and though the world was made through Him it did not receive Him. The prophesy about Him in Isaiah 9 said He will be called Wonderful Counselor, MIGHTY GOD, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 7:14 said he will be called Immanuel(which means God with us). His disciple thomas said, later after Jesus took our punishment to the cross with Him, that he desperately wanted to see Christ bc the others had and he doubted and Christ appeared in the locked room and gave that grace to thomas and said go ahead, touch the holes in my hands and side and thomas fell and said "(JOHN 20:28)Jesus, my Lord and MY GOD." And Jesus said, good you have seen and believe, but blessed will be those who haven't seen and yet still believe. He didn't say, like the angel said in revelation to John when he fell to worship him, oh no don't do it i am a fellow servant just like you. He said, GOOD you have seen AND BELIEVE. He kept telling people but they still just kept saying 'tell us who you are!' and He told them plainly, I HAVE but you don't believe. He says those who have ears will hear. He made a comparison about Moses and Him to a house and it's builder and He also said I tell you before Moses and Abraham, "I AM." And He is! God bless you who read this.

ANSWER

Yes. Jesus did not claim he was God or that he was equal to God. Read John 14:28- You heard that I said to you i am going away and I am coming back to you. If you loved me you would rejoice that I am going my way to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am. Jesus stated he is going to the Father (God) not to himself and the Father is greater than he is. If Jesus is God this statement would make no sense.

Yes - in Mark 10:18, Jesus says, "Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God." He not only denied beng God, but even denied being good.

Does Jesus deny that he is God in John 17 verse 3 and John 5 verse 44?

A:To the author of John's Gospel, Jesus was most certainly God, and we should be cautious of reading any part of John to mean that Jesus was not God. John 5:44-45 does suggest a lapse, in which Jesus did deny he was God, but need not be read this way; John 17:3 is ambiguous and could more readily be seen as a denial by Jesus that he was God, but again need not be read this way. In Mark 10:18 (Why call me good. There is none good but God.), Jesus clearly does deny being God.

Why did Jesus deny being the son of God?

A:Jesus did not deny being the son of God, just he never actually made that claim. In the first New Testament Gospel to be written, Mark's Gospel, only outsiders call Jesus the Son of God. Jesus refers to himself as the Son of Man, while Peter calls him the Christ (anointed one). In Mark 3:11-12, the demons fall down and call Jesus the Son of God, but Jesus is quick to instruct them to tell no one, thus no more than an implied admission. The demons would know Jesus' divine status, but if this was a blasphemy then they were outsiders and brought no disrepute upon the Christian community. In Mark 10:18, Jesus says that he is not God, "Why call me good? There is none good but God," but he is not denying being the son of God.It was possible for the later gospel authors to have the followers of Jesus refer to Jesus openly as the Son of God, as if the authors no longer had to prove that he is. Further, Matthew and Luke explain that Jesus was the Son of God because of Mary's miraculous conception while still a virgin, but John says that Jesus existed from before creation.

Why do people doubt that Jesus is the son of god?

Because they can also argue that he is a part of God, which is partially true. You see, God and Jesus are spirits, not physical beings. (Jesus was once, and yet remains somehow, but that's beyond my understanding...) God and Jesus are one being, yet they are independednt of one another. Yet another explanation may be that they are just hardhearted. Hardhearted people will deny God, yet find something else to fill that hole in their weak hearts.
