Jesus never asked his followers to believe WHAT he was. Instead he demanded that they follow his example and commit to the Kingdom of God. When you go back to the original Greek of the New testament you find that the words translated as ‘belief’ actually mean to have commitment and loyalty. Jesus didn’t ask his followers to follow a set of beliefs as to what HE was. Instead he preached a message about the Kingdom of God and in so doing told us what the nature of GOD was.
