I think I can see why you are not understanding what I am trying to say...and I apologise for not being able to say what I am thinking clearly.
You are coming from that stand point that Jesus is Gods son....so he died for what he knew. From that stand point, if you believe the bible, He did die for what he knew directly from having been with God before coming to earth....but first you must believe what the bible says about him.
But, what I am saying is that if he isn't the son of god, as in, not from heaven. He LEARNT all he knew from his parents, rabbis, etc...it was not what he knew, it was what he learnt. He quotes moses, because he learnt his knowlege of god from Moses. He may have died for what he believed to be the truth...but, he is no different from any other person who died for what they believed...a martyr maybe.
It only makes a difference if you believe Jesus was gods son. And we only have his word for that....well, not even his word...other peoples words...and other people that we cannot clearly identify.
And then, of course there is the issue of him quoting Moses, he confirms that moses wrote those books...but we cannot be so certain.
This thread is about evidence for God...and the only evidence that Jesus was gods son is found in the bible and written by people who are anonymous. Then there are Jesus quotes..."it is written" and "Moses said"....but did Moses write? and did he say anything of the sort? Scholars are now coming to the conclusion that Moses did not write the pentateuch...so was Jesus wrong? How could he be gods son if he was wrong about that?
So...my point is....if Jesus is not Gods son...he did not make up a lie...he just believed what he was taught....which is why I am attempting to go back and establish who did first talk about this god as he is known. And I cannot cleary see who it was since Moses is under question himself...but even if he was the first...Moses himself did not die for what he believed...
Deu 34:7 And Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.
