Proofs of Christ Jesus being God
The Quran was reportedly revealed to the founder of Islam by God through the angel Gabriel.
But, the Christian Bible contains the direct speech of Christ Jesus who is God.
In this context, which is holier? Of course, indirect recording of speech by God cannot be more authentic than direct recording of words of God. Therefore, we had better position the Christian Bible at the highest place in the study of religions.
However, if you do not admit that Christ Jesus was the Son of God or God Himself, you may think that the Bible is not so valuable as the Quran that records words of God though indirectly through the angel Gabriel and the founder of Islam.
So, the issue is whether or not Christ Jesus is the So of God or God Himself. And, what are proofs that attest to the fact that Christ Jesus is the So of God or God Himself? But it seems that there are no such proofs as should force Judaists and Muslims to admit that Christ Jesus is the Son of God or God Himself.
But they may be simply hidden though such proofs have not been clearly pointed at. For 2000 years, any Popes, clergymen, priests, and other Christians have not been able to discover such proofs, though they have believed that Christ Jesus is God in their faith.
If the proofs that Christ Jesus is the Son of God and God Himself are presented so clearly that any persons should accept them, Judaist problems and Islamic problems will be resolved.
But, it might be more significant that for past 2000 years the Vatican and the Protestant camp has not been able to show such a proof. It means that God wants mankind to believe that Christ Jesus is the Son of God and God Himself without a proof that should make any persons admit that Christ Jesus is the Son of God and God Himself. Or it means that efforts for people to find the proof are crucial. And God intends to reveal the truth only to those who have made enough efforts.
If somebody says to God that if He shows him a clear proof that Christ Jesus is the Son of God and God Himself, he would believe in Christ Jesus, God might say that only believers can see the proof.
