The word of Man says Jesus is Co-equal

The word of God says that God is greater than the Son and every thing the Son has and does is by permission and granted to the Son because of his obedience to his Father.

John 14:28 , I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

John 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself, so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself,

Hebrews 5:8-9 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered, And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him,

---onesimus on 1/30/10 The word says that God sent his Son into the world not himself. The word says that God was in the Son and never says the Son was God. Jesus never said that, and his Father never said that. The word says that by Faith Jesus obeyed his Father and because he endured to the end his Father gave him a name above every name, and gave him honor and glory, and gave him a kingdom, and made him head over the church, And now Jesus shares his throne at his right hand, And if we over come as he did he will write the name of his God in our foreheads and make us a pillar in the temple of his God, and give us a rod to rule just like his Father gave him.
---exzucuh on 1/30/10


You have to believe in one God and Father to believe the truth. You have to believe what his word says not what men say his word says.

God says he is one

Man says he is Three

God says Jesus is his Son

Man says Jesus is God the Son

God says you must believe his word by Faith

Man says you must believe the Trinity.

Warwick,

I certainly understand the translation process and that one language seldom, if ever can be translated word for word into another. Not the issue.

As you did months ago, you have asserted something about the Hebrew language that is simply not true.

For your benefit: (once again) Your statement that Jesus is equal to the Father because he is called "God" is just not true because the father calls others (Moses, angels, etc.) God as well, using the same exact language.

Equality is not suggested or established by assigning elohim or theos to anyone.

I don't expect you to appreciate this simple truth because it works against your trinitarian indoctrination.
---scott on 1/30/10


Matthew 16:13 Jesus asked his disciples, saying,
Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

This is the same thing you are doing saying who -->you<--think Jesus is!

Matthew 16:15 Jesus saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said,
Thou art the Christ, -->the Son<-- of the living God.

Matthew 16:17 And Jesus answered and said for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Antichrist does not believe in the Father and the Son.But does away with this aspect by doctrine.
By doing this salvation is done away by putting faith in a lie and not what God has
said in his word.
---exzucuh on 1/30/10




Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. This is the belief that distinguishes born-again Christians from unbelievers and professors. Jesus is God the Son, which means He is co-equal with God the Father. When He walked the earth He was called a prophet, and He was a prophet, but that is not all He was. What distinguished believers from unbelievers is that the believers knew Him to be the incarnate God, Emmanuel, God with us. And when Jesus called Himself the Son of man, He was acknowledging this great condescension--that God would humble Himself to take the form of mortal flesh and blood.
---onesimus on 1/30/10


Scott once again you duck a question: What is your point with Exodus 7:1 are you are saying you believe God literally made Moses God!

Again I point out that one language is not translated word for word into another. Consider German- Er kommt- He comes. This is correctly translated into English as He is coming. Logically you must reject the use of 'is' in English as it does not exist in the original German.

Hebrews 1:5 'For to which of the angels did God ever say "you are my Son,today I have become your Father?"'

Christians are all sons of God but none of us are eternal or the Creator, or the Redeemer.
---Warwick on 1/30/10


"Are you are saying God literally made Moses God! Bizarre!" Warwick

Your argument is not with me but with God's inspired word.

Again, the Hebrew at Ex 7:1 says "Netatichah Elohim le'paroh..." Literally- "I have made you God to Pharaoh."

Check any Hebrew Lexicon.

I have never stated that this puts Moses (or angels) on the same level as Christ Jesus...any more than calling David a "King" makes him equal to Christ or to Jehovah who are also referred to as Kings.

The word "God" in Hebrew and Greek (like "King") is a title that denotes authority and is without intrinsic meaning without an examination of the context.
---scott on 1/29/10


"Scott in calling Jesus my Son God is calling Him His equal." Warwick
(1 continued)


I see we've changed subjects, away from the title "God" to "Son of God".

If this makes Christ equal to the Almighty, then he is in good company.

ANGELS


"Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord..." (Job 1:6)

"When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" (Job 38:7)

Adam

"Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God." (Luke 3:38)

"...that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons,..." (Galatians 4:5-6)

Candice the Bible clearly explains Jesus is creator & God. But Genesis says God created heaven & earth. Who created- God or Jesus? You've a problem.

Jesus called himself 'I am' the name of God. His hearers wanted to kill him for blasphemy 'because you a mere man claim to be God' -John 10:33- just one example.
---Warwick on 4/25/07
There is NO problem in calling Jesus God, for He Himself said "I and the Father are one." Your reference to John 10:33 doesn't show that Jesus was not God, but that the Jews did not accept who He was or believe in Him. If He were not God, don't you think they would have been successful in stoning Him?
---tommy7376 on 1/29/10


Scott in calling Jesus my Son God is calling Him His equal. God never called Moses God.

Did God ever call Moses, Baal et all my Son?

Jesus is Creator, and Saviour, and the Alpha and the Omega, all titles given to God in the OT and to Jesus in the NT. Therefore one and the same!

You are blinded by your JW indoctrination.
---Warwick on 1/29/10


Scott, are you are saying God literally made Moses God! Bizarre!

If you understood my French example you would comprehend that translators toil over bringing the meaning of the original into the second language. Word for word translation is fraught with difficulties and misunderstanding.

However you evade the point. You gave the Genesis 7:1 example in the hope of proving that Moses was just as much God, as Jesus. You now admit it doesn't.

Where does Moses say:

I am the way the truth and the life
Come to me all who are heavy-laden, and weary and I will refresh you.
Destroy this temple and I will raise it up.
I am the Alpha and the Omega.
I give them eterrnal life.
I am the resurrection and the life.
---Warwick on 1/28/10


Warwick,

On 1/25/10 you stated that "God calls Jesus God," as if there is some special significance to this.

There is no special, intrinsic meaning to the word itself (whether El, Elohim, Theos, etc.) because the very same words are applied to Moses, angels, judges...not to mention the other side of the coin: Bael and Satan himself.

Your statement, then, that "God calls Jesus God" is without meaning without an examination of the context.

If it's somehow significant (in and of itself) that Elohim, El or Theos is attributed to Christ, than it's equally significant that's it's attributed to Moses, the angels, etc.

And of course, it's not. Context is key.
---scott on 1/28/10


"'like' was added to provide correct meaning." Warwick

One man's 'correct meaning' is another man's theological spin. In this case yours is the later.

You boldly stated (in quotation marks no less) that "in reality in Exodus God says "I have made you like God to Pharoah. Totally different." 1/25/10

That's not only untrue but misleading because the Hebrew itself provides no difference whatsoever....it certainly does not include or suggest the word 'like.'

Your comment didn't infer a consideration of the context, but rather, what the text actually said.

What's worse is that your backstroking (away from your previous comment) is dishonest.

There is one Physician who is possessed both of flesh and spirit, both made and not made, God existing in flesh, true life in death, both of Mary and of God, first passible and then impassible, even Jesus Christ our Lord.--Ignatius c35-c117AD.
Christ Jesus, our Lord, and God, and Saviour, and King, according to the will of the invisible Father--Ireneaus -c202AD.
For next to God, we worship and love the Word who is from the unbegotten and ineffable God, since also He became man for our sakes, that becoming a partaker of our sufferings, He might also bring us healing.--Justin Martyr 100-165AD

---PASTOR_JIM on 1/27/10


Scott, correct, the Hebrew in 7:1 for 'God' is elohim, which depending upon context means God, gods, mighty one, great one, judge. God knew which of the two of them was God. Not a good example to give.

'like' was added to provide correct meaning. The French /'Qu'est-ce que c'est cette maison?' ('What is it that it is that house'), is correctly translated into English as 'What's that house?'

Jesus cannot do anything of His own accord. He is of the Trinity, always of 1 accord. Especially true of Jesus on earth: Philippians 2:6-8 Jesus is fully God "but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant," ".humbled himself and became obedient to death.."
---Warwick on 1/27/10


Perhaps a better question would be do you have Jesus Christ? Jesus said in John13,20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

Who did Jesus send? John15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:(see also John14,26)
So when the disciple received the Holy Spirit in Acts 2,4 they received Jesus and the Father also
No wonder it's so important to receive the Holy Spirit which has not and cannot change (Its the Spirit of truth)
Jesus is the same(Heb13,8) The Father is the same (James1,17)
---Rodney on 1/27/10


He is the "lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world". He is the reason that we can go directly to God as individuals to communicate with Him. He Saves our souls from death/hell. He loves us more than we can understand and gives peace that passes understanding. He is one with God as is His Holy Spirit which he sent to us for His purpose.

1 Timothy 3:16 (2)

Trinitarian scholar Murray J. Harris comments:

"The strength of the external evidence favoring OC [`who'], along with considerations of transcriptional and intrinsic probability, have prompted textual critics virtually unanimously to regard OC [who] as the original text, a judgment reflected in NA(26) [Nestle-Aland text] and UBS (1,2,3) [United Bible Societies text] [also the Westcott & Hort text]. Accordingly, 1 Tim 3:16 is not an instance of the Christological [`Jesus is God'] use of qeoV." - Jesus as God, p. 268, Baker Book House, 1992. Emphasis mine

1 Timothy 3:16 (1)

Eloy, although the KJV translates 1 Tim. 3:16 with "God", nearly all other translations today use a word which refers, not to God, but to Jesus: "he" (NIV, RSV, NRSV, JB, NJB, REB, NAB [`70], AT, GNB, CBW, and Beck's translation), "he who" (ASV, NASB, NEB, MLB, BBE, Phillips, and Moffatt), "who," or "which." Even the equally old Douay version has "which was manifested in the flesh."

All the very best modern NT texts by trinitarian scholars (including Westcott and Hort, Nestle, and the text by the United Bible Societies) have the NT Greek word oV ("who") here instead of qeoV ("God").
---scott on 1/26/10


"In reality in Exodus God says "I have made you like God to Pharoah..." Warwick

Not true. The Hebrew at Ex 7:1 says "Netatichah Elohim le'paroh..." "I have made you God to Pharaoh." The word 'like' does not appear in the Hebrew text.

"Moses was not God but a man carrying out Gods commands..."

True. Referring to him as "God" didn't mean that he was the Almighty. Likewise Jesus said "Truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing..." John 5:19 RSV

"...human intellect..."

It took 'human intellect' to develop a doctrine not found in God's word.
---scott on 1/26/10


Paul again speaking of Christ, says, "For in him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." Colossians 2:9.
---Eloy on 1/26/10


Zechariah 12:10

Check the other translations:


"...when they look upon him whom they have pierced" - RSV. Also in agreement with this rendering are NRSV, GNB, MLB, NAB (1970), NAB (1991), LB, Mo, AT, JB, NJB, NLV, BBE, and Byington. (ASV says in a footnote for "me" in Zech. 12:10: "According to some MSS. [manuscripts], `him'." Also see Rotherham footnote.)

Context

After saying that they will look upon me (or him) God continues with "they shall mourn for HIM". Notice how the KJV (and those following its tradition) contradicts itself here. The "me" in the first half simply does not agree with the "him" of the second half.

Scott, Typo corrected:Paul, speaking of Christ, says, "Without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh." I Timothy 3:16

"miscompleted is a word indeed, so is miscontexted and misapplied, which is what you have done.

God speaks with himself, just as a person speaks with himself, saying, "Man, you have just saved a life from death."
Jesus is The Almighty. Revelation 1:8.

And we know that the small "g" is correct, because there is only one God with the capital "G", and otherwise Moses would be idolatrous and falsehood.
---Eloy on 1/26/10


Who is Jesus?

He is the one pierced. Compare Revelation 1:7 with Zechariah 12:10 and you will see both say-they will look on the one they pierced! God was pierced and Jesus was pierced therefore they are one and the same. How can God who is nonCorporal be pierced? Hebrews 10:5 explains. Jesus, God the Son says "a body you prepared for me. Jesus, fully God, fully man, the one pierced!

Compare Matthew 26:15 Zechariah 11:13 God says He was priced at 30 pieces of silver. Matthew says Jesus was priced the same. In both Scriptures the money went to the potters field.

Who was priced at 30 silver coins? God was, and Jesus was, therefore God and Jesus are one and the same.
---Warwick on 1/25/10


In reality in Exodus God says "I have made you like God to Pharoah. Totally different. Moses was not God but a man carrying out Gods commands, with power, before a man who was considered to be a god. I am sure he appeared as a god to Pharoah.

Did God call Moses His Son?
Did Moses call God my Father?
Does Scripture call Moses the Saviour.
Does Scripture call Moses the Creator?

No to all.

Scott your problem is that you are trying to understand God's word through human intellect, not via the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. No man, by human reasoning, can comprehend God, and His word.

But when he says that all things have been subjected, THAT PLAINLY, HE IS EXCLUDED, which subjects he all things. And when he subjects all things, then yet he the Son being subjected that subjects he all things, in order that case God whom all in all."

Romans 9:5-

A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament, United Bible Societies, 1971, p. 522: "In fact, on the basis of the general tenor of his theology it was considered tantamount to impossible that Paul would have expressed Christ's greatness by calling him `God blessed for ever'." "Nowhere else...does Paul ever designate ho christos [`the Christ'] as theos [`God' or `god']."

The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, Vol. 2, p. 80, 1986: "Christ would not be equated absolutely with God, but only described as being of divine nature, for the word theos has no article...The much more probable explanation is that the statement is a doxology directed to God."

God calls Jesus God, He calls Himself God,(as His mortal enemies attest) as do the apostles.

Romans 9:5 " Theirs are the patriachs, and from them is traced the human ancestory of Christ who is God over all." Human ancestry as to His body, and God over all. Fully man and fully God.

Romans 9:20 "But who are you O man to talk back to God? Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, 'why did you make me like this?'"

Hebrews 3:3 "Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself.

#1 Mike, as Christians we learn to sacrafice the flesh . The flesh is concerned only with self. Your question is posed from a position of, "Who is He to you?" That is irrelevant.

#2 Mike, He is, to His sheep, as He promised Himself to be, the Good Shepherd, His relationship to us is unchanging. It is not our concern what He is to us, it is our concern what we are to Him. Are we obedient to Him, are we His disciples, are we good and faithful servants. It is a matter of perspective. The perspective needs to be removed from self. He is Lord and Master.

God said " this Is My Son In Whom I Am Well Pleased"
---wayne on 4/26/07


He is my everything. Whatever I need him to be, that is just what he is. He is my friend when I have no friends, he is my Doctor when I need healing, he is my bridge over water, he is my mother, for I lost mine. He is my adviser, my strength, my rock that I lean upon, he is my EVERYTHING.

Candice - ("Jesus is the SON of God, he is NOT God,") -- How do you figure that out? How can Jesus be the Son of God and at the same time not God given the fact that God has no beginning and no end.

He is my Loving Savior and my God in Him I trust. He is the WORD MADE FLESH John 1:14, He is my Redeemer. He is my everything, My First Love, the First and Foremost in my life.

Jesus and God are 2 and the same. They are both part of the Godhead, but Jesus is the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

God was all by Himself in the beginning. Meaning there was no Trinity in the beginning. God was just One.

The Trinity bears record.(1John 5:7)
When God was restoring the earth, the Trinity existed.

Luke 5: Jesus heals the lame man, and tells him, "your sins are forgiven". The Pharisees rail among themselves against him as a blasphemer, "because "Who can forgive sins but God alone? Most logical of them: only the one sinned against has the right to forgive, and sin is ultimately an offense against God. Yet Jesus affirms that He, the Son of Man does have the right to forgive sins. The Pharisees knew that Jesus really was asserting His divinity, and Jesus never corrected them.

Jesus' deity is proved by the fact that He has attributes belonging *uniquely* to God:

Creator (Colossians 1:16-17).

Can forgive sins (Luke 7:47-50), judge all people (John 5:27).

Sends forth the Holy Spirit (John 15:26).

Accepts worship (Hebrews 1:6, Matthew 14:33), while Paul and Barnabas tore their cloaks when mistaken for Gods (Acts 14:12-14).

Identified with the Alpha and Omega and the equivalent the first and the last (Revelation 1:8, 1718, cf. Isaiah 44:6).

Jesus is called Lord (kurios). Now this can *sometimes* mean "sir", but it was also used for God. In (Romans 10:9) there is no ambiguity: Jesus is called Lord where it is a translation of the Old Testament YHWH (= Yahweh/Jehovah, God). See for yourself -- Romans 10:13 cites Joel 2:32 "everyone who calls on the name of YHWH shall be saved", and applies this to Jesus.

So many times, OT passages explicitly referring to God are applied in the NT to Jesus.

Candice, in Jewish imagery, "the son of" often meant "of the order of" or "having the very nature of". For example, "sons of the prophets" meant "of the order of prophets" (1 Kings 20:35); "sons of the singers" meant "of the order of singers" (Nehemiah 12:28). So when Jesus is called "THE Son of God", it means that He has the very nature of God (cf. Philippians 2).

God. My Lord and my God.

Jesus Christ is fully true God and fully true Man in one Person.

This is who Jesus Christ is, PERIOD.

If you don't believe this, then you're worshipping something you made up out of your own head--an idol, in other words.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
(Joh 1:1-5)

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
(Joh 1:10)

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
(Joh 1:14)
