They tried to kill Him on the spot for claiming to be THE Son of God, for saying God was His OWN Father.Jesus didn't tell them he was the Christ either. Even when people asked him if he was, he would not declare that he was. He also told us why but nobody is listening to him.
20 Then he sternly instructed the disciples not to tell anybody that he was the Christ.
But we are expected to believe he went about declaring to the Jews that he was their God.
Stunningly absurd proposition.
