How do we know Jesus claimed to be divine? How do we know that Jesus wasn't just a good teacher?

A doubt often echoed online is that Jesus was just a good person or teacher. How do we know he claimed to be divine? Helloo? He is called the Son of God about 40 times in the New Testament & he called God his Abba, Father, Papa really. That was blasphemous back then. Today’s skeptics say not so fast. All christians are in a sense the sons & daughters of God, so how do we really know he claimed to be divine? Well, he also often referred to himself as the Son of Man. Skeptics also say this just indicates his humanity, but it doesn’t.
