No blasphemy was committed!

MISHNAHTHE BLASPHEMER IS PUNISHED ONLY IF HE UTTERS [THE DIVINE] NAME. (I.e., the Tetragrammaton YAHWEH) R. JOSHUA B. KARHA SAID: 
(Talmud Sanhedrin 55b)


Here's the problem nowhere in the entire New Testament did Jesus ever utter the word Yahweh nor was the name Yahweh used by any of his disciples ?? So how could Jesus have been condemned as a blasphemer when he never uttered the name?


Neither did Jesus ever call himself God explicitly, which again could not condemn him as a blasphemer? Just for the record when Jesus supposed to have said :


Jesus answered: "Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'? ( John 14:9)

Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. This  alleged statement was specifically said to his disciple not to the Jewish rabbis, scribe Pharisees. Since the Jews were not present there this cannot apply as blasphemy as no Jews heard this statement to use it against him. Now coming to the statement such as :

Before Abraham was i am & I and the father are one. A closer inspection of these two alleged sayings nullify any idea of Jesus calling himself God or omitting blasphemy:



"You are not yet fifty years old," they said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!
(John 8:57)

------------------------

Notice from the above text, once read from context we find that the jews and jesus were having a face to face dialogue. Jesus spoke about Abraham that he was waiting to see his days..

“Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.” (v56)

Yet the jews answered back :

"You are not yet fifty years old," they said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!
(John 8:57)

Now why did the jews say YOU ARE NOT FIFTY YEARS OLD? AND YOU HAVE SEEN ABRAHAM?? What difference would it make if jesus was 500 years old since the time gap between Abraham and Jesus would have been 4000 years...

Unless they were speaking of a man who lived during the time of Jesus called Abraham which would make more sense saying your not fifty and you know Abraham.

Its like saying your not 60 years old how can you say you saw JFK ( ex president) now the question is if jesus was meant to declare his divinity then why didnt he say before Adam was Iam?? Thats if we take the Iam as God even though thats not what it means! Why stop at Abraham how about Noah do you see the problem this causes for christians

This tells us according to john there must of been a man during the first century called Abraham whom the jews were taking as a pious man

Here's another problem

COMMENTS: A few copyists apparently changed the Jews' question to be more like Jesus' statement in verse 56 ("he would see my day; and he saw [it]").
The Textual Variant changes the entire message  of the IAM saying wouldn't you say

-------------------

Jesus did not call himself God John 10:30 nor did he blaspheme 

I and my father are one ( John 10:30) a typical answer found by every Christian evangelist, if only they read the entire context they could spare themselves from such embarrassment . Not only did Jesus call the Jews god's (John 10:34) he also proved them wrong by calling himself a son of god negating such statements by the Jews !

Jesus encounters the Jews 

The Jews ask who he is 

Jesus tells them he's doing his father job

Jews still were unsure 

Jesus tells them he and the father are one

Jews pick up stones to stone him

Jesus challenges them why are they stoning him

Jews reply Jesus he blaspheming calling himself God

do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? (John 10:36)

Jesus is confirming he is not God rather a son of God, in Jewish understanding this means a Servant of God. also note psalm 82:6 ye are gods meaning judges, the John 10:30 could mean the Jews didn't accept Jesus as a judge like themselves! Again John 10:30 doesn't qualify Jesus as God.


The question is why was is charged for blasphemy when he never committed such an act?




Serpant or Satan?

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the...
