Matthew 26:65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
Today people like to claim that Jesus never claimed to be God. They like to think that we have made that up. Look at this verse. They knew exactly what was going on. They wouldn’t believe it or accept it but they knew that Jesus was claiming to be God. He had condemned Himself because He committed the blasphemous act of claiming to be God.
Jesus is God. He has always been God. The Jews religious leaders knew that. The demons knew that. The question is what do so many “so called” Christians not understand that Jesus is God.
