You're welcome.

There are some things that can't be explained fully. I just consider it a mystery that will be revealed to us later.

What about the eternalness of God? Can you explain how he has always existed and never had a beginning? I know I can't, no matter how hard I try, I can't grasp the concept of no beginning. It is kind of similar with the Trinity for some people. They cant see how the Trinity is possible, some can't even explain it, but they still believe it.

In the bible it does tell us directly that God is eternal. You're right, our human brains can't grasp that. However, the trinity is not in the bible...and there is plenty of evidence in the scriptures to oppose the trinity.

The Jews want to kill Jesus because he was claiming to be God, which is abomination in Judaism. A man that turn people away from god to follow another God shall be put to death. Read DEUT.

Did the Jews miss translate Him as well because they picked up stones to kill Him? why would they do this unless He committed blasphemy in their eyes.

The bible is clear that we are only to worship God yet Jesus allowed many to worship him

He was claiming to be God? Which particular scripture?
In Mark 10:18 didn't Jesus say:
18"Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good—except God alone.
If he was claiming to be God shouldn't he have just said, "thank you!"?

I'm not so sure Jesus allowed people to "worship" him in the same sense that Jesus said we should "worship" God.

Actually yes. He did.

Read the first 5 chapters of Revelation. You'll see him saying that He's the Alpha and Omega. You'll also see God being worshiped in Heaven in chapter four, and then Christ being worshiped by the same people in chapter 5.

Nevermind the scenes of worship of him we see while he was on earth.
