Now then, Jesus lived among his disciples for about 3 1/2 years and he spoke unto them and they also spoke to him and called him Lord (kurios) many times correct?
By the way, God made Jesus to be Lord and Messiah and therefore his being called "Lord" by no means makes him God, just in case you wanted to try and use that looney argument here.
New International Version
36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”
So here is the question, where other than by Thomas in John 20:28, was Jesus ever spoken to and addressed as being God by any of the disciples and being you insist that he was in John 20:28?
Also, if Thomas was truly calling Jesus "The Lord of me and The God of me" and which is how it reads in the original Greek, why didn't Thomas just say this instead, "The Lord God of me".
For if indeed he was speaking to only Jesus and not the Father God also who was dwelling within Jesus and as Jesus taught all his disciples in John 14:10, then it is really odd, that he would use the definite articles twice and once in front of the word Lord and then also in front of the word God and then also separate the two titles by the Greek equivalent of "and".
What does the Bible mean when it says that Jesus was made Lord and Christ?How could Jesus be made Lord if He was already the Lord? In other words, Jesus is God in flesh (John 1:1, 14; Colossians 2:9). Therefore, He already is Lord and Christ.
Acts 2:36, “Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified.”
Jesus was not made Lord in the sense of He was made into something He was not already. Instead, it is dealing with His status as a man made under the law (Gal. 4:4), in a lower position (Luke 14:28). In that sense, He was made Lord and Christ by God the Father.
Jesus was made both Lord and Christ because He was under the law and had to fulfill Scripture. This is not talking about His nature but His position.
Also John said He is God.
John chapt 1
Elisabeth said He was her Lord in Mary’s womb.
Then Mary say’s her spirit rejoiced: “And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.”
|And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?|
|44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.|
|45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.|
|46 ¶ And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,|
|47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.|
