I recently got back into reading the Bible after a long hiatus, especially after a talk with my Grandma regarding religion (I've even ordered a new NLT Bible). I'm a Christian and look at things from a Christian perspective, probably Protestant since I mainly go by just the Bible and local churches, not the Catholic Church really.
The main thing that made me come back was a newfound viewpoint on God through the New Testament, mainly through his son, Jesus. I've come to look at Jesus as a cool, kind, and profound weirdo, which isn't an insult, I think weirdos are cool. He did some arguably weird things, but when you're literally God, I don't really think you'd act 100% "normal" by human standards. And humans are weird anyway, so him being weird when he's part human isn't surprising either way. He was still God, but it also showed a very vulnerable human side to him, and it really made me appreciate God more than I had before.
But Jesus, at least I feel, marked a difference in how God normally presented himself in the Bible. I know the scripture states that God doesn't change. And I'm not saying he changed per say, more that he simply developed a bit due to one reason. Which is that he became human and lived a human life through Jesus.
While Jesus was still God, he was also bound in many ways to that of a human life. He got a first hand experience of what it was like to be a human on Earth and the struggles that came with it. He talked to people directly, and learned of their struggles, and how many many Churches weren't truly good, and that many were actually corrupt. He got a human perspective on things.
Because of this, I think it didn't necessarily change him, but brought out a different side to him. He wasn't as violent for the most part, other than an occasion where he whipped people to get out for disrespecting his church by making it a market place, which is understandable. He didn't start wars and kill people, which many seemingly expected him to do, and more so spent his time simply healing, spreading the good news, and overall just telling people to be their best self, even going up against high priests and kings. He even drank and helped sinners and people of religions different than his own.
I'm not saying God in the Old Testament was bad, far from it, he's still good ol God after all, but I do think there's a notable difference in how he acts and how he's talked about between the two testaments. And I think it may be due to becoming and living as a human. I mean, there's a huge gap from his time as a kid to his time as an adult. Maybe in those years, he really realized the struggles of man in ways he may not have before (due to seeing things through the eyes of God, and not just a mere man), and developed a bit because of it, though we don't have a ton to go on for that time in his life, so it's more speculation. Still, I think it's quite likely becoming human had a huge affect on God.
I guess this is more of my interpretation than a question, but I'm still curious, what are your dudes' thoughts? Is there any biblical evidence/interpretations that answer whether this is true or not?
