I believe Jesus was his own person. I don't believe he was God or the son of God. I wouldn't be surprised were Jesus alive in front of me right now that he would tell me he never claimed to be divinity, but instead it was written against his will that he was.. IE a fabrication edited in by later generations.
The way I see it, all of us are sons and daughters of God and all of us are part of "God". I believe God is a higher source, source that eventually flowed into our dimension and became what everything is. NO ONE should know what God is.. because God is simply the miracle of creation, and the source of all creation is something very far beyond reach in very high dimensions.
I believe our souls are reborn every time to learn and achieve a pre-planned lesson or to work off some karmic debt in order to ascend in another life to higher dimensions, to eventually be closer to the "Source".
I didn't make any of that up as I've been taught it and many people see it the same way too.
I have a strong and shared opinion of who "God" in the Bible really was. And he certainly was no divine being.. but I won't get into it as most people refuse to hear it.
