Sounds good Jon, thank you for posting here and offering this for discussion. In my mind I picture Jesus as a man but with the KNOWLEDGE of God. Yes, He pooped and had bad teeth but He had the Wisdom and the words of God while in the earth. He performed many miracles with many witnesses. Could Jesus the man have called down lightning, I say yes. Could He smite someone and send them to hell? I believe if Jesus CHOSE to He could, and I understand the whole concept of "God cannot contradict Himself". Very interesting Jon and I hope we get lots of participation on this thread.
I find it interesting already that it seems difficult to not focus toward deity. It seems so deeply rooted in us that deity is the concept we are looking to confirm or deny. 

I don’t think I’m consciously trying to bring up the “what degree of omnipotence” thing. I’m trying to work against the grain to see if we notice anything different.

Think of this method of approach, at least for a little while, as you would trying to show the deity of Jesus to someone who only accepts his humanity (we see it everyday). Now switch “humanity” and “deity”, the guy currently only believes that Jesus is God. Where might their concerns be? Even if they don’t know how to express them?
