You are ‘gods’

I find John 10:34 one of the most curious verses in the Bible: Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’?

In Psalm 82, Asaph calls sons of the Most High ‘gods.”

Jesus quotes this psalm when he is threatened with stoning after he calls himself the son of God.

Jesus explains that if the Old Testament uses the term ‘god’ to describe people “to whom the word of God came,” then there is no reason to stone him for blasphemy.
