Firstly, if Jesus is God, it is of course impossible for Him to blaspheme against His own law. Secondly, Jesus did not overtly claim to be God directly and consequently inevitably stumble the lost sheep of Israel that He was sent to. He answered the question: The high priest said to him, “I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are ...

I would like to add some theological background to this answer from the Catholic perspective (and naturally, I would invite Orthodox readers to contribute their own perspective).

The question, as it stands, really isn't soluable. Reason #1: The Crucifixion raises other Trinitarian questions First and foremost, the Trinity itself is hard enough to understand.

Heb 5:8 & Phil 2:7-9]. 1. In the Godhead the essence, will, and action are but one. - cf. The divine unity in The Blessed Trinity | New ...

From John Gill's exposition of this passage: For he shall not speak of himself: as Christ, the Son, spoke not of himself in opposition to the Father, so the Spirit speaks not of himself in opposition either to the Father, or the Son, but in perfect agreement with both; being, as of the same nature and essence, power and glory, so of the same mind, ...

This is a very good question. How could God justifiably do the following: Tell the Jews (via Moses) to stone anyone claiming to be God Send a man (Jesus) to the Jews claiming to be God Condemn the Jews for stoning the man claiming to be God. Here's the justification: Jesus shouldn't have been crucified because he actually was God, not a man claiming to ...
