It is just my feelings on this and I agree with you in some of your idea. Being Son of God makes it difficult to believe as there is little evidence of a "Personifed God".
There was little written about this fellow till the Nice Council at about 315 CE. There were many stories that came to the council about this. Mind you there were hundreds of Bishope scurrying the country side to get these stories.
One of the people that was used, possibly was Joshu. He was born with his mothers name being Mary and his fathers name was Joseph. He lived about 350 years BCE and did great mirascles and had a lot of powers such as Clairvoyance and many other Psychic abilities. Joshu was stoned to death in a town close to Bethlehem.
If interested I can verify this from my material that I use.
Also there was a man called "Benjamin the Egyptian", this one I don't have anything other than he was much like Joshu.

Interesting. I have heard that some of the legends about Jesus may have been inspired by Egyptian myths. I don't know which Egyptian god this is, but one of them supposedly was born to a virgin and died and was resurrected.

As a new user I find the posts concrning the divinity of Jesus most interesting. It seems that there is much dependency upon both the old and new testament as accepted by both modern day Christians and Jews to validate their beliefs - pro divinity or non divine for the figure of Jesus. The probem inherent with this whole belief system is in proving/accepting the inerrancy of the book which is called the Bible. There were many virgin births, sons of Gods and miracles in early mythology. To elevate an evolutionary teacher, even one as enlightened as the bibical Jesus, to the status of Divine is to require a selective buyin to a narrow view of mythology.

Is Jesus the Son of God? My studied answer is to state that we are all the sons and daughters of God in that the cosmic creator - Nature, the Architect of the Universe - God if you must - is the initiator of life. To elevate a book of collected oral traditions, fables, geneologies, tall tales, battles, erotica, poetry and assorted prejudices and horrific laws relative to ancient times to an inerrant, sacred tome is to do an injustice to all humanity.

John12:49 For I have not spoken of Myself but of My Father who has sent Me. He gave Me a Commandment of what I should say and what I should speak.
2Corithians4:18 Look not at the things which are seen but at the things which are not seen for the things which are seen are temporal but the things which are not seen are eternal, walk by faith not by sight.
1Corithians14:33 For God is not the author of confusion.
Hosea11:9 God says,"I am God and not human."
Numbers23:19 God is not human, He does not lie nor is He Son of human beings that He should change His mind.
John1:18 No one has seen God at anytime the only begotten Son who is in the bosom of His Father has declared Him.
John8:54-55 Jesus answered, If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing it is My Father's honor of whom you say that He is God yet you have not known Him but I know Him. If I should say I know Him not I shall be a liar like you but I know Him and keep His Commandments.
John7:16-18 And He said, My doctrine is not Mine but His that sent Me. If any person will do His Will they shall know of the doctrine whether it be of God or whether I speak of Myself. Whosoever that speaks of themselves seeks their own glory but they that seek His glory that sent them no unrighteousness is in them.
Acts4:18-19 But those things which God before had showed by the mouth of all His prophets that Christ should suffer He has fulfilled. Repent you therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out when the time of refreshing shall come.

John4:23 But the hour comes and now is when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth for the Father seeks such to worship Him

Messenger, first of all, I will not allow all bold big font posts like that. Also this is not the website to proselytize. I changed your post to normal font and deleted the part where you were proselytizing. This is the last post I will allow with Bible quotes like that. You can quote whatever you like, but most of your post needs to be personally written. This is your last warning. Next time I'll have to delete your post.
