Re: JarThink
Matthew, Mark, and Luke never come close to calling Jesus a creator of worlds.
There were religions that had human females incarnated by the Avatar of an important high God, at times creators. There was also posession of people by Avatar spirits.
The Hebrew Gospel of Matthew and Greek Mark had Holy Spirit posession.
The son of man was what Jesus called himself, but what did that mean.
Go back to the earlier stratum. Then try to figure out what the adoptionist Christology was all about.
We don't know how the development went exactly because we don't know what influenced the views of the communities that eventually wrote non extant documents that preceded the exsting Gospels we have today.
We do, however, know that the virgin birth was late stuff. So any sincere person, who wants to KNOW JESUS , absolutely must reject the virgin birth . The Hebrew Christians resolutely rejected that late development.
