Is it possible that Jesus would have never been crucified? What would have triggered his immediate stoning to death? Could the answer be in these very verses below?
Matthew 26:62-64Names of God Bible (NOG)
62 The chief priest stood up and said to Yeshua, “Don’t you have any answer to what these men testify against you?”
63 But Yeshua was silent.
Then the chief priest said to him, “Swear an oath in front of the living God and tell us, are you the Messiah, the Son of God?”
[ The Unpardonable Sin ] “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.
Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, “He has spoken blasphemy! What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you have heard His blasphemy! Ps. 97:9 You, O Yahweh Elyon, are above the whole earth. You are highest. You are above all the gods.
John 10:33-35New King James Version (NKJV)
33 The Jews answered Him,(Jesus) saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.”
34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods”’?[a] 35 If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), 1 Corinthians 8:4-6New King James Version (NKJV)
ICor.8:4-7 Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but one. 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), 6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.7 However, there is not in everyone that knowledge;
Ps.82:1 God stands in the congregation of the mighty;
He judges among the gods. I said, “You are gods.
You are all sons of Elyon. (The Father)
7 You will certainly die like humans
and fall like any prince.”
8 Arise, O Elohim!
Judge the earth, because all the nations belong to you.
