Who Jesus Was to me

            The argument about who Jesus was has been debated and raged for centuries. For Christians, the accuracy of the Gospels in the Bible are absolutely critical. Many Christians say that eyewitnesses wrote the Gospels when in fact they were actually written at least a few decades after Jesus" death. How accurate can something be written from memory twenty to thirty years afterwards? How reliable is memory? Think about the demonstration teachers give on how twisted words get over just a short time. When your teacher whispers in one of your classmates" ear and then on the other side of the classroom the original thing said is totally changed and twisted. I've also read that Jesus" words were passed down by oral tradition and weren't actually recorded until someone felt like writing them down. It is hardly likely that people in Jesus" day accurately recorded what he said word for word, decades after he said it. .
             I totally believe that Jesus existed I just question the Bibles overall accuracy, Archeologists have proven that Jesus existed. I also believe that one can learn a lot from the teachings of Jesus and apply it to everyday life. His stories teach a lot about morality and loving your neighbor. But I feel that Jesus" claim to be the Son of God is totally crazy. God is all knowing and throughout the bible Jesus asks questions that he should know the answers to: "Women where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?" This to me doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Therefore I do not believe he is "God incarnate" .
             "My father who has given them to me, is greater than all and no one is able to snatch them out of my father's hands. I and my father are one." (John 10:29-30) This also shows that Jesus was claiming to be divine. I don't believe that Jesus was God in fact, I think it is crazy that he states he is "God's incarnate". It doesn't make sense to me and has no effect on my life.
