    Philippians 2:5-8
    5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
    6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
    7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
    8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

    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.
    Easy to say, but both of you consider Him as such.

    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 former juvenile delinquent who would become a counterculture demigod"
    Are the angels/sons of god, demigods?

    Are the messengers of god, ie. angels and his sons, demigods? They are supernatural to our perception.

    So, you have to understand when He is saying or doing something as a human being.
    Like He wept, He ate, He slept.....all in His humanity.

    But He walked on water, calmed the storms, forgave sins, read men's thoughts....never ceasing to be our Great God.

    You are talking about a lot.

    I know that He said this.

    I am not saying what He said it from.

    I'm telling you....He was speaking as a man.

    God became flesh. And while in the flesh, He spoke as a man.

    Do you believe that Jesus is not the Father?
