I find it academically interesting to read things like “Mark and Divine Christology?”
But the question of whether Jesus was wholly God or wholly man or wholly both or wholly neither... That’s all academic to me. I can’t understand why it is anything more than that to anyone.
My own personal credo says nothing about the divinity of the Jesus.
If you honestly study the scriptures, you will find that they do not necessarily agree on this matter. (Perhaps they don’t necessarily disagree either, but...again: Academic.)
What is the more important message? The one that is more mixed or the one that is more consistent?
What is the more important message? That Jesus was divine or that we should love our enemies?
What is the more important message? That we should stone certain offenders or that we should not judge others lest we be judged ourselves?
What would Jesus say?
