Our family has been studing the New Testament for that last few months and this morning we were reading John chapter 10. When I came across these verses. I have read John before, but never noticed these verses. They seem to support the LDS view of our ability to become as God is.

I suppose the reason I have missed this before is that John 10:16 is a verse we refer to as support for Christs visit to the people on the American contenent.

Anyway, I would be interested to hear your views as to what Christ is refering to in verses 33 & 34. It sure sounds to me, like it was common knowledge that the Jews could become "Gods".

No flames please, I just want to know what you think these verses are about. I'm not attacking anyone, but I would like to know how y'all interpet these scriptures. After all, there are no errors in the Bible!
