    Is Jesus a demigod?

    I have heard some people express that Jesus is a demigod. Reach these people with the gospel, the truth of God's Word the Bible.

    dem·i·god

    /ˈdemēˌɡäd/

    noun

    a being with partial or lesser divine status, such as a minor deity, the offspring of a god and a mortal, or a mortal raised to divine rank.

    "some Roman emperors claimed descent from demigods such as Hercules"

    a man who is greatly admired or respected.

    "a former juvenile delinquent who would become a counterculture demigod"
    Bereishit - Genesis - Chapter 1

    1 In the beginning of God's creation of the heavens and the earth.
    :א בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ

    in beginning he created gods the heavens and the earth

    Beloved, believe not every spirit,
    but try the spirits whether they are of God:
    because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    He is God, one of the triune nature of God.
    Even in the very best of situations, voting is still an unmitigated failure. The fact that any simple majority of individuals (mob) can determine an outcome that adversely affects the minority (mob rule) is against all natural rights. In the United State today, all who vote harm others so that they might benefit. By voting, they are also sanctioning theft of private property at the point of a gun, and the redistribution of that property to those who did not earn it.

    Is there something that you take into consideration in giving this answer?

    Jesus is not a being with partial or lesser divine status.
    Jesus is not a minor deity.

    Jesus is the offspring of a god and a mortal, which by definition makes Him a demigod.
    Jesus is a mortal raised to divine status but Jesus already had divine status before giving it up to become a mortal, so this does not count.

    Jesus matches one definition of a demigod, but Jesus is not a demigod.
    The offspring of a God and a mortal? No.

    Divine status before giving it up to become a mortal? No.
