But Jesus remained silent. And the high priest said to him, “I charge you under oath by the living God, that you tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.” Bible

“that you tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.” What the Jews asked Jesus at his trial, and how Jesus answered, is good evidence that Jesus never claimed to be God and that there is no Trinity. Trinitarians often say that Jesus was claiming to be God, but there is no clear evidence that is true. Here is clear evidence that the priest’s thought Jesus was claiming to be the Messiah, the Son of God, and they did not think that “Son of God” was in any way equivalent to “God.” [For more on Jesus being the Son of God and not “God in the flesh,” see Appendix 10, “Jesus is the Son of God, Not God the Son”].
