There is something that is very puzzling to me.
In Jn 8:58, Jesus implies that he is God, he talked the talk, but
did he walk the walk?
"I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born,
I am!" (John 8:58)
"Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself,
and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so
passed by." (John 8:59)
If Jesus, who previously performed many miracles, suggested that
he was a god, why not stand and prove it ? Why run and hide ?
If I go into a town, and tell the people there that I am
Superman, then when someone tries to prove me false by throwing
uncooked hamburgers at me, I can do one of two things, I can prove I
am Superman by cooking the hamburgers in mid-air with my heat
vision, or run and hide for fear of getting clunked in the head with
a frozen hamburger patties.
Now if I run and hide, then surely this proves I am not Superman.
So that is my confusion, why would Jesus make such a claim and
then run and hide?
Jesus nor superman had to hurt the attackers, only shield
themselves with their Powers, as superman shields himself from
citizens who "know not what they do", why didn't Jesus?
If Jesus wanted them to know he was a god, why completely
discrediting himself by running away from the rocks instead of
making the rocks into butterflies?
