dear Paul,
     No NT writer clearly equates Jesus with God, and this on account of a
monotheistic belief - this would seem to be a reasonable statement, except
for the author of the Gospel of John, who in 10:30-33 makes it reasonably
clear that Jesus was understood by his audience to say this. "The Jews
answered him, 'not for a good work do we stone thee, but for blasphemy;
because you being man make yourself god'", KAI HOTI SU ANQRWPOS WN POIEIS
SEAUTON QEON. Does not their response to Jesus indicate the possibility of
challenge to monotheism? I hope that I am not out of order in following up
this matter.
