The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us." (John 4:25)
The above verse from context is about the Samaritan women who has a discussion with Jesus, which starts off after a journey to Samaria Jesus was tired and asked the women for some water and its continues... Now after a long chat coming to verse 25 we read that the women was aware of a messiah to arrive who will EXPLAIN EVERYTHING! what did Jesus reply ?
Then Jesus declared, "I, the one speaking to you--I am He."
Here we can read Jesus explicitly declared He was the Messiah which no Muslim on The planet will reject, however point to be noted here is Jesus referred himself as HE in context to Messiah thus he meant Messiah... So when we read in the very same book of John Jesus calling himself He one can easily make the distinction that he's referring himself as the Messiah and this also also includes John 8:24
I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am he (Messiah), you will indeed die in your sins." (John 8:24)
This can also be verified by his very own disciple Peter, when Jesus asked him who he was he replied you are the Messiah!
"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "You are the Messiah." (Mark 8:29)
Just for the records the Aramaic texts states The Living God, but I assure you this is not true as the Aramaic text does not say Living God rather it's been rendered by translators. I have seem the Aramic text and did not find Living God but only He so we can see the deceptive motive..
If a man cannot consider himself to be Good how does he Become God? Take for instance book of mark when the Jew calls him Good and Jesus replies he is not Good rather only God is Good, if he really was God this will be consider as he lied? And God doesn't lie
"Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone.
So let's not get carried away with making a man into a God rather let God have his high status like he is due...
