If You’ve Seen Me . . .

Some people, those who are extremely ignorant of what the Gospel accounts of Jesus' life say, sometimes wonder aloud if Jesus ever claimed to be God. Space does not allow me to document all the places that Jesus clearly and decisively made that claim. Suffice it to say that those who had Him killed for the blasphemy of calling Himself God heard it often enough and clearly enough to make the charges stick.
If you have seen Me, you have seen Father God.”
As we’ve completely run out of men and women with integrity to run things in the West, and the top prize now goes to the person with the biggest bankroll, it’s comforting, to me at least, to know that all of Jesus’ words and deeds were carefully designed to answer once and for all time how a leader will look when God is in charge.

    That's not what John 14:9 says. You deliberately added "God". Jesus' divinity was pretty controversial from the beginning within the Christian churches. There were good arguments for giving him only Prophet's status. Especially for theologically versed Christian Jews the idea of a human being God at the same time was unacceptable. Paul fixed that by opening the church to uncircumcised gentiles, whose native polytheism allowed for such mixing, and the concept of sons of god.
