Hi Blacknad:

I say the same to you as I said to Mr. P. Discussion of the fine points would not be productive for either of us. Your example, " I and the Father are one", offered as proof that Jesus claimed to be God is applied editing.

MARK 1:1

"The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God"

I think that says it all. Now you can reasonably argue that to be the Son of God makes you a God as well and that might be a good point.
