Since the compiling of the scriptures took place over a space of time when ideas about Jesus and orthodoxy were rapidly being changed by argument and rebuttal, it is not too puzzling to realize what eventually took place.
When you read what is now New Testament you are not reading the singular view of one divine mind. You are witnessing a random cut and paste smattering of ideas.
Much retro-fitting and editing and commentary wedged in demi-god status for Jesus while AT THE SAME TIME the earlier monothesim remains basically unchanged.
The result, when viewed by us today, is a hodge-podge. It begins to appear there is some "hidden" message when there isn't.
FACT: Some people took the Greek idea of demi-god and ran with it for Jesus "secret identity" like Clark Kent and Superman. Others could not abide such non monotheism and pagan mysterium.
The Church halted the evolution of christian thought when it used the power of Rome to create OFFICAL BELIEF.
It then set about destroying any competing modes of thought.
The Victor writes history, after all.
