... hence the link. Nifty uh?
Obviously, no one knows for sure what someone said 2000 years ago, since there are no eyewitnesses and no recording equipment. And we don't even know for sure if Jesus actually existed, beyond the Bible record and a few anecdotal extra-Biblical accounts.
Which is kinda what I posed, cool uh?
The latest gospel, John, was completed about 60 years after his death, and the opening verses claim his deity.
The opening verses you refer to do not seem to claim the deity of the Jesus character, those opening verses do mention a "John" though (nice play on words eh? ).
As for "your" beliefs, they are not my call, they never were, since I realize that what you so lovingly like to call "your" beliefs aren't "your" beliefs at all, they are someone else's beliefs (you seem to be in agreement with for some reason or other) and have adapted as your own.
And such is the way of the Meme.
Interesting stuff that, Memes ... highly contagious too, so, we'd better beware.
You do not have an ideolgy, an ideology has you
rejected and denied by many, accepted and embraced by few : falsifiability

as the maxim demands; truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true
everything else ... mere BS -
