 Matthew 14:22-36
If the reader accepts my understanding of Jesus that He operated as a man (while being fully God) totally dependent upon the provision of God the Father for all the things which He did, then it would appear that Jesus must have had some inner witness that this was the right thing to do.
We’ve met up with healing coming about through the touching of the fringe of Jesus’ garment before in Mtw 9:20 (Pp Luke 8:44) where the woman with the flow of blood secretly did the same when there were crowds pressing around Him, hoping that she might not be noticed.
But it may be going too far to think that, as it was in the transfiguration shortly afterwards (Mtw 17:1-8), Jesusdivinity was being displayed even though the disciples respond with such a proclamation once they receive Him into the boat (Mtw 14:33).

Christians accept this same God, but believe that the Christ has already appeared in the form of Jesus, in accordance to the Jewish Scriptures (such as in the books of Daniel and Isaiah).
Indeed, some would feel that this is central to the beliefs of the founders of some religions: for example, Jesus was very critical of traditional interpretations of the established Judaism, and the perceived hypocrisy of some of its adherents at the time.
Religion is belief in the divine, supernatural, or sacred that results in worship; that worship itself; the institutional or culturally-bound expression of that worship; or some combination of these.

 John 14
Jesus as the divine presence on earth and the human presence in heaven speaks of the mystery of the incarnation, of the divine-human being who is "presence" both before God and humanity.
Such focus on the incarnation as such or on Jesus' historical mission are quite compatible with "the belief in the unity of the divine Nature, and therefore with the belief in the equality of the Godhead of the Son with the Godhead of the Father" (Westcott 1908:2:191).
When Jesus uses the expression it is indeed only a little while, a matter of a couple of days, until the salvation that is the beginning of the fulfillment of all the hopes will come.

 Chapter 14
Jesus, according to Luke, began his ministry very shortly after John began his, which was in the time of Tiberius, as above shown, "Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests" (Luke iii, 1, 2, 23; iv, 1, 14, 15).
But to return to the contradictory accounts of the "calling." Jesus "entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land.
But any signs are good to the ignorant and superstitious; and none at all are needed to gather followers for curiosity or hope of reward.

As a fictional literary device whose purpose is to establish, or in the case of Matthew to re-establish, Jesusdivinity, the baptism is important.
In order to establish Jesusdivinity, which he had to do, the writer of Mark came up with the idea of the baptism and to have God himself reveal the hitherto unknown fact that Jesus was his son.
The writer of the Gospel of John avoids the problem altogether by not ever having Jesus baptized which was a wise move on this part.

 Mary, a Pagan Goddess?
If the two natures of Jesus (divinity and humanity) are inseparable then Catholics believe it is appropriate to call her Mother of God.
Most Christians would say that it is impossible to separate the divinity of Jesus from the humanity of Jesus.
Jesus was born of Mary so that He could become Man. If she were some kind of divine being, how could He have derived his humanity from her?

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Character of Jesus Christ
Jesus does not wish to teach the evil spirit the mystery of His Divinity; to the Jews He gives a greater sign than they are asking for.
But the love of Jesus embraced not only the spiritual welfare of men, it extended also to their temporal happiness: "Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt., vi, 33).
Now Jesus sympathizes with all classes, with the rich and the poor, the learned and the ignorant, the happy and the sad; He moves with the same sense of familiarity among all classes of society.

 Not Completely Worthless - FARMS Review
The doctrine of two natures was that Jesus' divine nature is the omnipresent "spirit essence" the Hellenized Christians defined as God, and since this essence is "without body, parts, or passions," it cannot have been the part of Jesus that underwent suffering, emotion, and death.
However, using the newly developed doctrine of the two natures of Christ (human and divine), they were able to rebut the charge that the suffering of Christ implied that the Son was not of the same substance as the Father.
In tracing His divine Sonship to His conception in Mary's womb, he was simply reproducing a commonplace of pre-Origenist theology; the idea did not convey, and was not intended to convey, any denial of His pre-existence."

Jesus recognized that "God incarnates himself in man" and announced the divinity of all men.
But historical Christianity has distorted Jesus' message: "The idioms of his language and the figures of his rhetoric have usurped the place of his truth."

 Islam massege for those who seek  the right relegion
Muslims accept all the Prophets and Messengers sent by Allah as theirs, moreover they accept Jesus, not as Christians claim him to be the Divine manifestation or son of God, but as a Messenger, albeit of miraculous birth since he was born of a virgin, hence he is called Jesus son of Maryam (Mary).
Unlike the other Divine Scriptures, the Qur'an is not kept in the hands of a particular group or elite or Muslims, and for this reason is not subject to suspicion that is might have been tampered with or altered.
Some of them are mentioned in the Qur'an and the Prophetic traditions such as Jibreel, the angel that brings down the divine revelation to the Prophets and Messengers, Mika'eel, the angel of provisions, Israfeef, the angel of the trumpet of doom, the angel of death.

 The Episcopal Church in the United States of America
The Church Divinity School of the Pacific was begun in 1893 to provide for the training of clergy in the West.
Because it is the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ, founded upon the foundation of the Apostles and the Prophets, given life by the Holy Spirit, it continues to live and move and have its being in the lives of all who accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Until the 1830's, this would remain the established Church of Massachusetts and a strong opponent of Anglican efforts at evangelism.

 The hidden life: Edith Stein -- II. 4. A CHOSEN VESSEL OF DIVINE WISDOM Sr. Marie-Aim\'{e}e de J\'{e}sus of the Carmel of the Avenue de Saxe in Paris, 1839-1874
Jesus Christ, in his divinity and humanity, was the Life of her life, the truest reality that she knew.
She had begun to prove the divinity of Jesus Christ with the words of the holy Scriptures.
She was only permitted to present Jesus' eucharistic life very briefly, because this life itself and the participation in it of the soul conformed to God is a hidden life.

 Jesus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist
Many of the Fathers declare that the true Flesh of Jesus (sarx) is not to be understood as separated from His Divinity (spiritus), and hence not in a cannibalistic sense, but as belonging entirely to the supernatural economy.
If, then, the words of Jesus are to be taken figuratively, it would appear that Christ had promised to His enemies eternal life and a glorious resurrection in recompense for the injuries and persecutions directed against Him.
Again, the murmuring of the Jews is the clearest evidence that they had understood the preceding words of Jesus literally (John 6:53).

 Jesus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The majority of Christian laypeople, theologians, and clergy hold that the Bible states Jesus to be divine, to claim divinity, and to claim equality with God the Father.
Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem at the end of his ministry is usually associated with the Passover Feast (15 Nisan or spring), as stated in the New Testament, which indicates that the waving of palm fronds and other greetings from the crowd were intended to hail him as the Messiah (John 12:13).
According to the Gospels, Jesus was born in Bethlehem to Mary, a virgin, by a miracle of the Holy Spirit.

 History of Jews for Jesus
Of course, he can still venerate Jesus as a prophet of G-d, just as Muslims do, but he will have to forgo such aberrations as belief in the divinity of Jesus and in the Trinity.
The founder of Jews for Jesus, a deceptive proselytizing technique, was Martin Rosen, a former Jew who converted to Evangelical Christianity in the mid-1950's.
They are to use Yeshua instead of Jesus, Messiah or Moshich instead of Christ, etc. They are also fed out-of-context verses from the Tanackh that are supposedly prophesies pointing to Jesus as Messiah.

 Cover story -- Essay: The Jesus of Islam
It highlights the fundamental opposition of Islam to the notion of a triune God, and the inability of Christians to question Jesusdivinity without ceasing to be Christian.
The doctrine of Jesus’ two natures -- divine and human -- is a defining point of Christianity, while the essence of Jesus’ person in Islamic tradition is shaped by his own consistent upbraiding of those who would attribute to him divine characteristics.
As Islam arose in what is now Saudi Arabia and surrounding areas, Muslim understandings of Christ emerged under the particular influence of Eastern Christianity and were probably shaped in part by the apocryphal accounts of Jesus’ life that were abundant in early Christian tradition.

Another of the evidences used for Jesusdivinity is the application of the title “Son of God&; to Jesus.
The identification of Jesus with the logos, was further developed in the early Church as a result of attempts made by early Christian theologians and apologists to express the Christian faith in terms that would be intelligible to the Hellenistic world.
Since Jesus’ religion, and that of all of the earlier prophets, was the religion of submission to God, known in Arabic as Islaam, his true followers should be called submitters to God, known in Arabic as Muslims.

 ICB Jesus in Islam, Hamza
Jefferson did not accept the divinity of Jesus (pbuh), nor did he accept the belief that revelation from God to man is a part of God's plan.
Jesus (pbuh) was especially prepared by God to be sent to the Jews who had deviated from the teachings of Moses and other Messengers.
The Qur'an confirms that Jesus (pbuh) was born of a virgin mother (Maryam) through the same Power which brought Adam into being without a father, and that by God's permission during his prophethood he wrought many compelling miracles among his people.

 Harvard Chaplain: Divinity School Founded on Relativism
The School turns out theological liberals aplenty—holding the myths of the New Testaments, the legends of the Old, the myriad questions concerning Jesus, not quite sure of the Early Church’s historic start, and so forth.
Then to read in the current issue of HDS publication that the Chaplain actually admits that unbelief is the School’s baseline is humorous confirmation to me that all along we Christian believers of the Word in fallible have been on to the genuine credo of the School.
Therefore, the professor giving forth that kind of faith certainty will surely be attack the forces of darkness—both within the classroom and faculty chambers, in his or her writings and just being present upon that campus.
