πŸ‘‘ Jesus Accused of Blasphemy

“But Jesus held his peace, And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. 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” (Matthew 26:63-65).

Did Jesus ever claim to be β€œGod?” (Why, yes, He did!)

While various denominationalists vehemently reject the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, they still have today’s Scripture in their Bible versions (and they cannot deny it!). During Jesus’ trial, the high priest commanded Him to declare once and for all if He was β€œthe Christ, the Son of God” (verse 63). Jesus replied, β€œThou hast said” (verse 64)β€”paraphrased, β€œYou have said it!” Still, Jesus added: β€œHereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven” (verse 64). The high priest was immediately outraged: he tore his garments and twice pronounced a charge, β€œBlasphemy!”

Evidently, what flustered the high priest was not so much Jesus’ reply β€œThou hast said.” No, what deeply rattled him was that Jesus took it a step further: β€œHereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.” The Lord did not have to say, β€œI am the Son of God,” to be accused of blasphemy. No, He merely had to declare, β€œYou will see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.”

β€œSitting on the right hand of power” was surely Messianic, as Psalm 110:1 predicted many centuries earlier that Christ would sit at the LORD’s right hand. Moreover, the β€œcoming in the clouds of heaven” was especially inflammatory, as the high priest recalled Psalm 68:4: β€œSing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH [JEHOVAH], and rejoice before him.” source
