One of the strings which the Church grabbed at for support and evidence on the implementation of the divinity doctrine is that Jesus had divine powers, thus making him divine. He performed Miracles. If this form of reason and logic would be accepted, it would lead to the acceptance of many people as gods, who demonstrated miracles.
According to ( II Kings 4:44) Elisha performed a miracle by feeding a hundred people with twenty barley loaves and a few ears of corn. Many other miracles of Elsiha as well as Elijah have been mentioned in Biblical sources, but divinity is not attributed to them or to other prophets who displayed miracles.
Even false prophets would do wonders and display miracles, as prophesised byJesus himself, "For their shall arise false christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the velry elect." (Matthew 24:24)
