John 10:31-34 ” Again the Jews picked up stones to stone Him, but Jesus said to them, ‘I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone Me?’ ‘We are not stoning You for any of these,’ replied the Jews, ‘but for blasphemy, because You, a mere man, claim to be God.’ “

Jesus’ claim to deity hit the Jewish leaders right where it hurt. For it was them who had appointed themselves as rulers & judges for God…not this guy & His ragtag group of followers. He was encroaching on their turf & they didn’t like it. But neither did they appropriately interpretate the Mosaic Law of religious regulations in Leviticus 24:16 that stated that anyone who blasphemed the Name of the Lord must be put to death. Jesus never cursed, slandered, or treated His Father in contempt… but in their distain, the Jews twisted & perverted this Law to fit their own vile-filled needs. And when Jesus pointed out His “works” (of which they couldn’t deny that miracles had really happened) …they instead focused on their made-up “words” in order to kill Him.
