Was Jesus God? If so, when did he become God? What does it matter? What changes if we say that he was born God, or became God during his life, or became God after he died? History now tells us that there were many, many Gods before Jesus came along who died and were resurrected, to the point where it was an archetypal story. Are we to believe that all of them died and resurrected, but only Jesus' resurrection counted, or were they all God? What would that mean? How would it impact our beliefs? If we are saying that all the other stories were fabricated but Jesus' was real, how do we know that? What evidence is there? What if Jesus' divinity comes from him being a great prophet, teacher, and contemplative who achieve full union with God, what the orthodox call Divinization, and so on that basis he is and was God? Other than that this allows for others who have done the same thing, would it render his life, ministry, and teachings irrelevant? If they found the tomb with his bones in it next week, would it destroy your faith? Why or why not? This and more, today on Interspiritual Insights!
