Walk the Talk ?

Dear Christians,

There is something that is very puzzling to me.

In John 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 ?

For example:

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?
