My first thoughts go to the Gospel of John. Have you ever read it?
The first Chapter may help you in understanding this more.
May I suggest you read it? Then come back and we can take it from there, if you like?
I am sure that other's here can also offer explanations to you.
Let me know by replying, if you would like me to copy and paste the Scripture here for you to read.
And, you don't have to stop with the first chapter. The whole of the gospel of John is full of Who Jesus is.
Bless you ....><>
This all comes to the point to mean "because my scripture says so, so it must be true!"Belief is blind if there is good evidence to support it. Jesus claimed to be one with the Father. It would be easy to dismiss him as deluded or ill except that he was crucified died and was buried and on the third day he rose from the dead.
No matter how strange it is to think of God living among us as a man, that is the only conclusion that makes sense of the evidence.
None of us can fully comprehend God, but he has revealed himself perfectly in the person of Jesus.
The most beautiful and eloquent description I know of is at the beginning of Paul's letter to the Colossian Church. Colossians 1:15-23
Are you making any point?(NIrV) God isn't a mere man. He can't lie. He isn't a human being. He doesn't change his mind. He speaks, and then he acts. He makes a promise, and then he keeps it.
Jesus revealed God as being a Spirit....
(AMPC) God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).
God is NOT like a man that he should lie. A spiritual being became flesh, but he was not a mere man, but a God man...
1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Heb 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
Heb 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
Not quite. We know from historical sources othere than the Bible that Jesus lived and was killed on the authority of Pilate in Jerusalem. We also know that the church grew and spread., despite persecution, in the belief that Jesus rose from the dead.This all comes to the point to mean "because my scripture says so, so it must be true!"
There is a lot about Jesus and Christianity in history. Some historians speculate Jesus was normal person who was by time made into a God. Lot of historians even deny Jesus existed. People even attribute Christianity to paganism. Some similarities are in this picNot quite.

If it were not true, then nobody would have had any interest in perpetuating the lie: not the Romans or Jewish authorities, nor the disciples, who died for their beliefs.
Christianity would have been over in an instant if someone had been able to produce a corpse ... but no-one ever did.
I think this diagram seriously misleading. Marking the dates of birth, for example, makes little sense. For one, Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus on 25 December. None us knows the precise date of his birth, and it is not mentioned in the Bible. There are quite a few historical markers – Jesus was born at the time when August was emperor, Quirinius was governor of Syria, and Herod the Great in Jerusalem. If we knew when Quirinius ordered the first census, we'd be able to be much more precise.There is a lot about Jesus and Christianity in history.
