Men as gods – A common Fallacy

In verse in Image (John 10:34), Lord Jesus Christ is not saying that men are gods but rather He is Speaking to the ‘gods’ which were influencing the Pharisees or Jewish religious leaders who were against Him.



Any Pharisee or Jewish leader knows that ‘men are not gods’.

This is clearly seen since Christ is quoting the Old Testament verse below When He said that (and not any other verse, yes ‘only’ this verse, can you see it?) proving this claim irrefutably:

“I said, “You are gods, And all of you are sons of the Most High.” (Psalm 82:6, NASB)

Yes, in verse above —> it is clear that:

‘the gods’ = ‘sons of the Most High’ = ‘sons of God’


“A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; He judgeth among the gods.” (Psalm 82:1, KJV)


Can we see it so obviously ‘as it is Written’ without any manipulations of any man by just letting Scripture to interpret Scripture?


“He [Lord Jesus Christ] was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.” (John 1:10, NASB)


The Jews still didn’t get it that Lord Jesus Christ is not a ‘man only’ but is God in Flesh (1 Timothy 3:16, John 1:1 with John 1:14) and Who Created ‘all things’ including ‘these gods’ (John 1:3, 1 Corinthians 8:6) too and thus their accusation against Him in verse below does not hold:


“The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.” (John 10:33, NASB)

The enemies of the Faith do not realize that He is not the God of Christians only but He is their Creator & Father too (2 Corinthians 4:4, Colossians 1:16 with Colossians 1:20 too).

The verse below speaks of Moses (who is a ‘man only’ and not ‘a god’) being sent to the Pharaoh ‘as a god’ for Judgment purposes especially since the Pharaoh at that time (had made ‘himself as a god though being man only too’ which is wrong & did many other sins such as oppressing the slaves, etc.):

“Then the LORD said to Moses, “See, I make you as god to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet.” (Exodus 7:1, NASB)

What the verse above doesn’t mean is that ‘Moses is a god’ simply because it does NOT make ‘Moses a god in essence but just that God Willed it such for a purpose’.

Can we really understand it accurately?
