Nope, he would not. His theological world view would temporarily cease as he writhed in pain thus demonstrating that religious sentiments are relative, even for him.

Jesus would question why God let it happen and what message he should send to people as a result. Does a crying grown man look god-like? Of course not. He'd have to muster every ounce of courage in his body to look as unhurt as he can.

Thanks dude. I didn't think anyone would actually debate this.
You said Jesus "would muster every ounce of courage in his body to look as unhurt as he can".
Ha ha! So Jesus would personify the tenets of Stoic philosophy? Well, 1st century Judaism would've dissuaded him from attempting to look "unhurt"; look upon my affliction and my pain. (Psalm 25:18)
Jesus said, "my god, my god, why have you forsaken me", when he was crucified. One can only wonder what expletives he'd have used with a well aimed nunchuck strike to his groin.
Religious sentiments are relative and moody.

Even if his behavior and theological outlook are relative, he'd still ponder it. He proved time and time again to constantly interpret all thigns philosophically so why would it change with severe pain?

He even willingly got nailed to a cross. Imagine the pain of his hand's bones carrying his body weight. Imagine the agony of the burning sun and slowly sweating and bleeding in and out of consciousness as you dehydrate and starve to death. that didn't stop him thinking theologically, as when he came back to life he was just as determined to spread his word.

If Jesus were nunchucked in the balls his concentration would be redirected from the supernatural to the natural. The pain to his groin would be the focal point of his attention.
His center of interest would shift from the things of god to ...ouch! The terrestrial concerns would supercede the celestial concerns in that moment. His religious sentiments might contemplate the situation. He may even persevere the pain with whatever dignity he could muster in that humiliating moment. Nonetheless, his spiritual concerns were disrupted Bruce Lee style.

Distraction from pondering theology is not the same as saying he's not doing it. He'd multitask as he is the son of God and is capable of infinite things,
