Jesus is God, and He is the unique Son of God. Just like I'm human, and I'm my father's son. So both my dad and I are human, but have different statuses

1. I don't have the answer for this question, but perhaps in the thousands.

2. Good question again, but I can't say. Even the Bible doesn't mention all the prophets. Now we are living in the days where everyone can receive God's Spirit as a free gift.

3. Don't know.

4. The OT mentions a lot of books that are lost to time. Unfortunately its hard to do any real archeological work in the Middle East because of all the fighting and disputes. Stuff have been lost to time. If it were possible, I would like to read the Book of Jasher and the Book of the Wars of Yahweh.

Awesome!
Jesus is God because his father is God. The species and kind don’t change. Just like a human’s son is always a human. A lion’s son is always a lion, etc.

Now,
Jesus was asked “When will the last hour arrive?”
And he said, “I don’t know”.

How can a God not know something?
This is such an important event in Abrahamic faiths and the believe is, ONLY AND ONLY AND ONLY, God knows when will it arrive?

For Jesus to be God, he MUST know this, otherwise he ain’t no God.


The second possibility is that Jesus lied.
If God lies, then he ain’t no God either - God is not a liar.

What is god made of?
If something, who or what created that something?
If not, if your god is immaterial, how does that work?

How does your god just know everything?
How and where does it store this knowledge?

If your god invented everything, what was it before it created the law of identity?

Why would I want to know about your understanding about G-d when I have my own? What makes yours any better?

the need of having a sense of reassurance when your own faith is shallow and your are not sure. These kinda OP's pop up once in a while - so nothing surprising.

Yep. That's my thinking as well.

There's a smugness and juvenility to the OP that is rather annoying. Perhaps a member of the amateur armchair "prophets" on plastic thrones, maybe from Fisher-Price? LOL He completely avoided my question about what age God would say he is.

Great read on the History of the Yahweh Concept

96:1.3 (1053.1) 1. Yahweh was the god of the southern Palestinian tribes, who associated this concept of deity with Mount Horeb, the Sinai volcano. Yahweh was merely one of the hundreds and thousands of nature gods which held the attention and claimed the worship of the Semitic tribes and peoples.
