Gotta love the quotation marks around "miracles". Evidently the author has some doubts about those stories...

Amusing little pamphlet, but there's just one slight problem: Jesus never actually claimed to be "God" either. The expression "Son of Man" in the original Hebrew did *not* denote any sort of claim to divinity in the context in which it was used by Jesus, and nowhere in the oldest of the Gospels (Mark) do we see him make such a claim. In fact, in Luke 18:19 he even goes out of his way to disclaim his divinity:

"Why do you call me good?" replied Jesus; "there is no one good but One, namely God.
This might sound like pettifogging pedantry, but it annoys me to no end that Christians seem to have so poor a grasp of their own illogical religion.

I love this picture.
