The Articles of Religion of the United Methodist Church state "that in the womb of the virgin Mary 'the Manhood and the Godhood' were joined together in one person, never to be divided. Jesus was proclaimed to be both human and divine.
Thus was formulated the greatest oxymoron in Christian theology. From the beginning of Christian literature a shroud of distortion has made it unbelievable, and subject to scorn, to rationally believe that Jesus was an ordinary human. Claiming he was a god/man all sorts of events were ascribed o him--events which no human person could possible do: walking on water, multiply a few loaves of bread into hundreds, calming a stormy sea.
A single human is not capable of divine (supernatural) actions.
"I ask not only on behalf of these [his disciples] but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me." --Jesus of Nazareth, New Revised Standard Version, Holy Bible
To be divine steps outside the definition of what it means to be human.
Could we say it is possible for a human to be infused with divine energy with the effect of enhancing certain human capabilities--which lie latent in most humans, but are accessible to all? And might we say that Jesus was one of these humans who manifested this infusion?
Given this understanding of "being human" we can say that Jesus was both human and divine. And indeed he was/is (for Christians, at any rate) the "first born of many brothers and sisters". But you may ask, "If Jesus could do this cannot all of us? Listen again to part of his prayer in
"I ask not only on behalf of these [his disciples] but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me." --Jesus of Nazareth,

APOTHEOIS, in a general sense means "elevation to the divine". But that carries the idea that the divine is above us and we must aspire to be elevated. Rather, panentheism asserts that the divine is all around us, and within us, but we have been taught to deny or minimize that. The Holy Spirit resides, rather latently within and around us. "Kindle in us the fire of your Spirit" is a plea that the Spirit might be set free (redeemed) in us and thus free us from the realm of worldly reality, to the realm of divine reality (the realm of God).
