I have read up on theology. Seems there are contradictions wandering throughout it. Hard to be "Son of God and "God in Human form" at the same time. But hey, legends and fables have a tendency to have errors in them.
Not to get into a whole discussion on theology here but The Trinity is what is the hardest thing to understand. Part of that whole Faith concept. No contradictions about the Trinity. Just Christ trying to explain it so that human minds can try to understand it. Any serious biblical scholar will tell you the same thing.
Now there are lots of other contradictions, especially between the old and New Testament. But if you come from the mindset that Christ is the new covenant then it actually adds up.
As you view the Bible as a set of fables I do not expect you to agree with the view point as you seem to view the Bible as one complete work of literature as opposed to a progression of works (this is my view of your statements).
But in the end, the vast majority of Christians see Christ as the same as God. Really the only sect that does not agree with that theology is the Mormon Church. For their specific views I will have to defer to someone who is Mormon as I am not.
