    Default Why was Jesus Christ accused of blasphemy by the Jews?

    In other words, where did the Jews come up with the charge of blasphemy?

    One of the reasons was this: they were blinded by hatred and pride.

    No, it was not well founded!

    Now I remember another reason: The rejection of Jesus by the Jews was part of God's plan.

    Because Jesus claimed He had authority to forgive sins (Luke 5:24)

    Because Jesus claimed that we should honor Him just as we honor the Father (John 5:23)

    Because Jesus claimed to be before Abraham, giving the attributes of God to Himself (John 8:58)

    Because Jesus told them He and His Father were one (John 10:30-33)

    Because Jesus claimed that He had all authority over Heaven and the Earth (Matthew 28:18)

    Because Jesus claimed He would raise the dead on the last day (John 6:54)

    Because Jesus claimed that all that belonged to the Father belonged to Him (John 15:16)

    And because His followers worshiped Him and called Him Lord (John 9:38)

    Basically, because He put Himself as equal with God and put all of God's nature and attributes as His own : p If He were nothing but a good teacher or a prophet, He would definitely be the most blasphemous teacher or prophet to ever exist : p

    Because He claimed to be their Messiah. Claiming to be God when you're not is blaspheme. Little did they know the blaspheme was theirs.

    Truth is available only to those who have the courage to question whatever they think they know.

    It's hard to learn anything when you always feel the need to be the expert.

    To be sure your answers are all true which is based upon what Jesus said to the Jews that the Jews accused Him of blasphemy. For example at John 19:7, "The Jews answered him, "We have a law, and by that law He ought to die because He made Himself out the Son of God." So why is it blasphemy to claim to be the Son of God since the Jews also claim to be sons of God?

    All men are sons of God, but there was only 1 Son prophesied to redeem creation. That's the Son Jesus was claiming to be, ergo the Jews hated Him. There's also a difference in that Jesus is begotten and we are adopted (not the right word but you get the idea), and there's a similarity in that for authority over creation to be returned to man He had to become one of us.

    They tried many times to try to tangle Jesus in His talk,and trip Him up,hoping He would contradict Himself,or say something contrary to what the Jews have been taught,for they were against Him so they wanted Him to fail,and look incompetent,and did not know what He was teaching,that it was not based on truth,as the Jews have come to know.

    They said Jesus cast out devils,by the prince of the devils,Beelzebub,which Jesus pointed out,that a house divided cannot stand,so Jesus casting out devils must be by God,which they blasphemed against the Spirit,for they said,Jesus had an unclean spirit.

    Since they were against Jesus accusing Him of this,or that,in hopes to put an end to His teaching,and that the people would view Him as mad,and declaring things that were not of God,they would say about anything to try to thwart what He was about,and teaching.

    But every time they tried to trip Jesus up,he always knew what to say to stop their foolishness,to where they did not know what to say next,and the Bible said,they left Him.

    Which is no surprise,for the world tries to do that concerning those that follow Jesus,in an attempt to make them appear foolish,but like Jesus that knew what to say,we should by the Spirit know what to say,which sometimes you have to keep your mouth shut,and sometimes you have to speak,to stop the folly of the world.

    John, chapter 5 (KJV)

    5 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

    2
    Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.


    3
    In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.


    4
    For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.


    5
    And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.


    6
    When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him,
    Wilt thou be made whole?


    7
    The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.


    8
    Jesus saith unto him,
    Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.


    9
    And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.


    10
    The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.


    11
    He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.


    12
    Then asked they him, Whaēt man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?


    13
    And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.


    14
    Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him,
    Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.


    15
    The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.


    16
    And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.


    17
    But Jesus answered them,
    My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.


    18
    Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

    They didn't want to accept JESUS as the messiah,they wanted to be top boss.

    IF you do not realize that the rebirth took place in your spirit then it can be confusing to your mind worshiping GOD standing in front of a physical mirror.

    I found this with a Google and click to Yahoo answers...

    Mathew 26:63

    Then the high priest said to Him (Jesus) "Swear by the living God, and tell us, are You the promised Savior (Messiah), the Son of God?"

    "I am" Jesus answered him. "But I tell you, from now on you will all see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power and coming on the clouds of heaven" [Jesus quoted from Daniel 7; 13-14] Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses?

    Daniel 7:13-14

    In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.

    He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed

    Caiaphas definitely thought that the Son of Man mentioned in Daniel 7:13 is equal to God. When Caiaphas read Daniel 7:13 he should have been aware of the fact that there were two Divine Beings (Son of Man and the Ancient of Days) mentioned there who is worthy of worship. You can also tell this by his behavior during the trial. When Jesus answered him that He is the promised Jewish Messiah, he didn’t seem to have a problem with it. But the minute Jesus quoted Dan 7:13 he became furious and tore his clothes.

    Some definitely did that is why Jesus stated.

    They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

    In acknowledging he was the son of God, there were those who thought they could make a case of blasphemy against him, I think.
