Ten reasons why Jesus is not God
- By the 30th of April, 2013.
- There are ten reasons why Jesus is not the Son of God.
- People are shaped like trees and walk like them.
According to Mark’s Gospel, Chapter 8 says: 22 When they arrived at Bethsaida, several of the villagers brought a blind man to Jesus and begged him to touch him.23 He grabbed the blind man’s hand in his own and led him out of the village.″Do you see anything?″ Jesus inquired after spitting in the man’s eyes and placing his hands on him.24 ″I see people; they seem like trees going around,″ he added as he raised his eyes to the sky.25 Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes for a second time.
- Then his eyes were opened, and his vision was restored, and he was able to see everything well again.
- 26 ″Don’t even go into the village,″ Jesus instructed him as he returned home.
- The plot of the narrative is around a blind man who is healed by Jesus (p).
The first question that emerges is this: if Jesus was indeed Lord and Saviour, as Trinitarians believe, then how could he make a mistake the first time he attempted to treat the blind man, causing his eyesight to confuse people for moving trees for the rest of the healing?A God cannot make a mistake; it is just impossible for a God to make a blundered decision.God merely has to speak anything for it to come into reality.
Why, therefore, would Jesus, if he truly is God, feel the need to conduct the healing a second time in order to make up for his earlier error in judgment?2.All authority has been formally ‘granted’.Then Jesus appeared to them and declared, ″I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.″ (See Matthew 28:18.) (6) ″I have made Your name plain in front of the men whom You have chosen for Me from the world.
They were Yours, You entrusted them to Me, and they have done what You asked of them.7 They are now aware that all of the things that You have given Me are gifts from You.8 Because I have communicated to them the words that You have given Me, and they have accepted them and recognized with certainty that I came out from You, and they have come to believe that You sent Me to them.
- (See also John 17:6–8) Is it true that Jesus has been ″GIVEN″ all authority by the Father (God)?
- How can Jesus be referred to be ″God″ if he was ″GIVEN″ this power?
- In other words, what was Jesus like before he was ″GIVEN″ this ″authority″?
- He was a nobody, and what type of God was he before he was ″GIVEN″ all of this power and influence?
Those who believe that Jesus is co-equal with the Father (God) question why Jesus would require the Father to grant him authority if Jesus is God himself.3.Jesus is confronted with temptation Jesus was brought into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit.He was tempted by the devil there (Jesus).2 Jesus was starving after 40 days and 40 nights of fasting and fasting and fasting.3 He was approached by the tempter.
- His words were, ″If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become bread.″ he said.
- 8 Finally, the devil transported Jesus to the top of a very tall mountain.
- He took him across the world, showing him all of the kingdoms and their splendor.
- 9 ″If you would kneel down and worship me,″ he declared, ″I will give you anything you ask for.″ 10 Jesus rebuked him, saying, ″Get away from me, Satan!″ ‘Worship the Lord your God,’ it says in the Bible.
- ‘He is the one one you should serve,’ says the Lord.
- 11 After that, the devil withdrew from Jesus.
- Angels came to his aid and took care of his needs.
- —Matthew 4:11–14, emphasis added.
- Is it possible for an All-Mighty God to be tempted by the devil whom He made, or for God to be influenced by His own creation?
Is it possible for God to be influenced by His own creation?If Jesus is God, then there are significant problems, according to the Bible, which states: James 1:13 (KJV) No one should ever declare, ″God is tempting me,″ while they are being tempted.God, on the other hand, cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anybody else.It is quite obvious in this passage that Jesus (pbuh) cannot be God since he was tempted to commit wrong.God, on the other hand, cannot be influenced by seduction.In verse 8, it says that the devil finally convinced Jesus to accompany him to a very high mountain.
He took him across the world, showing him all of the kingdoms and their splendor.9 ″If you come to me and worship me,″ he replied, ″I will give you whatever you ask for.″ God, the owner of the worlds, the creator of all live and inanimate objects, the giver of life and death, and the sustainer of all things, is the one and only God.How can the devil offer to a God, if Jesus is God, ″I will give you all of this if you worship me″ if Jesus is God?If the devil was indeed speaking to God, it is just not feasible for this incident to occur in this manner.
As a result, it is self-evident that Jesus is not God since even the devil recognized that Jesus was not God.It’s for this reason that he enticed him with such monetary benefits.’Praise the Lord your God,’ Jesus declared at the conclusion.’He is the only one who deserves your service.’ Jesus made it plain that the only person who should be worshipped is God alone, and that no one else should be worshipped in his place.4.The Father is superior to Jesus in every way.’I’m going to be away for a while, but I’ll be back.’ Even if you didn’t love me, you would be relieved that I am going to the Father, since the Father is more bigger than I am myself.
- 14:28 (John 14:28) Jesus stated unequivocally that the Father (God) is superior than himself.
- Christians would dispute and contend that this signifies that the Father is greater than Jesus in terms of authority, but not in terms of essential worth or significance.
- However, this is in direct conflict with Matthew 28:18, where Jesus claims that the father has delegated all authority to him.
- An other point to consider is that, if they are all equal, as Christians believe, how can one be greater than the other?
- Because I seek not my own own, but the will of the Father who has sent me, I can do nothing but evaluate what I hear.
- And my judgment is just because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father who has sent me.
- John 5:30 Here, Jesus (pbuh) expresses unequivocally that all he accomplishes, including miracles and forgiving sins, is a gift from God Almighty, not from himself.
- He carries out God’s will in all he undertakes.
- Given that Jesus is God, why couldn’t he just do anything he wants because he is God?
- Why is it necessary for him to listen to the Father (God) in order to be granted permission?
- This is not my doctrine And it came to happen that when Jesus had finished these sayings, the crowds were taken aback by his teachings.
- (Mathew 7:28) And they were amazed at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
- ( Mark 1:22) Jesus answered them, and said the following: My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
- He means God almighty.
- (John 7:16) So as you see it is clear that Jesus (pbuh) was a prophet of God almighty.
- The doctrine Jesus taught, which is the Gospel, is not his, but it belongs to the one who sent him, in other words God.
- If he was God, wouldn’t he be saying this Gospel is my own words, I am God?
- Is Jesus shy to say ‘I AM GOD?’ You won’t find one verse in the whole Bible where Jesus says “I am God”, Why is that?
- If Jesus is God, why would he not declare that he is God?
- Is he shy to say he is God?
- I mean there are so many passages in the Old Testament where God almighty makes himself clear that he is God, why hasn’t Jesus once said “I am God”?
- Can I call someone King if he never declared himself to be a King?
- I am going to show 10 verses where God says he is God in Old Testament: (A) Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me.
- (Isaiah 46:9) (B) Yet I am the Lord thy Godfrom the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.
- (Hosea 13:4) (C) I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God.
- I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me.
- Isaiah 45:5) (D) And God said to him, “I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number.
- A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will be among your descendants.
- (Genesis 35:11) (E) “I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites.
- Tell them, ‘At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will be filled with bread.
Then you will know that “I am the LORD your God.‘ (Exodus 16:12) (F) “I am God, the God of your father,” he said.“Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there.(Genesis 46:3) (G) “I am the LORD, the God of all mankind.” Is anything too hard for me?(Jeremiah 32:27) (H) And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you, and ye shall bear the sins of your idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.(Ezekiel 23:49) (I) Keep my Sabbaths holy, that they may be a sign between us.Then you will know that “I am the LORD your God.” (Ezekiel 20:20) (J) “So My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations.
They will have no place in the council of My people, nor will they be written down in the register of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel, that you may know that I am the Lord GOD.(Ezekiel 13:9) 8.God alone is good As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him.“Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered.“No one is good—except God alone.
- (Mark 10:17-18) In the above verse a man runs up to Jesus and says “Good teacher” Jesus replies back and says “why do you call me good”?
- Jesus answered him and said “no one is good except God alone”.
- If he was really God, why would he differentiate himself, why would he say God ALONE is good?
- He is making himself clear that God alone is perfect and no one else, not even himself.
- Jesus don’t know the hour “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
- It is sufficient to say that God alone knows all matters, and that He is aware of all of which we conceal and reveal.
- However, if Jesus is really God incarnate in flesh, how is it that he is unaware of the time of the coming hour?
- How is he unable to deduce when the end of time shall come?
- So, we can say that he doesn’t know thus not making him all-knowing which is an essential attribute of God’s.
- How can one claim Jesus is God when lacks basic attributes to even be considered a God?
- Ever asked yourself that question, that if Jesus is actually a part of a three and these are all co-equal how can the son not know the answer?
- Jesus worshipped God Jesus (pbuh) bowing down and worshipping God the Father: (A) Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me.
- Yet not as I will, but as you will.” (Mathew 26:39) (B) He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father,if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” (Mathew 26:42) (C) Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
- (Mark 1:35) (D) They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” (Mark 14:32) (E) Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayedthat if possible the hour might pass from him.
- (Mark 14:35) (F) One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.
- (Luke 6:12) (G) He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed.
(Luke 22:41) (H) And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.(Luke 22:44) Did Jesus just pray to himself?And why did he do this?A God is in no need of peoples prayer, rather people are in need of the prayer.So, who exactly is the creator worshipping?Jesus says: But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth.
(John 4:23) Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan!For it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ (Mathew 4:10) If Jesus said ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only’, why do Trinitrian’s continue to worship Jesus?After reading through all of this it is just so obvious that Jesus cannot be God.If you continue to worship the creation rather than the creator you will only be bringing disaster in to your lives for you are neglecting the verses that argue on the contrary to the popular belief.O people, worship your Lord who is One, who resembles not the creation and one who cannot be contained in a particular direction nor contained within a specific place.God is far beyond any human conception.

Jesus is not God – Bible Verses and Proofs
- God is incapable of death.
- God does not pray to himself in the traditional sense.
- God does not engage in debate with himself.
- God did not anoint himself with oil.
God is present in Jesus, but Jesus is not the same as God.The following Bible verses will demonstrate that Jesus is not the Son of the Living God.Everything in the Bible must be interpreted in the context in which it is written.It is not possible to interpret something in whatever way you choose and say that it is the truth.It is not necessary to understand the word of God in the Bible!
- You have no choice but to accept it as written.
- Whatever I instruct you to do, you must do it exactly as I command you to do it: neither add to it nor subtract from it.
- (See Deuteronomy 12:32 for further information.)
God and Jesus are one, because God lives in Jesus
- The Bible verses that are most frequently used in support of the assertion that Jesus is God are those that demonstrate that God resides inside Jesus.
- God is spirit, and as such, He resides in the hearts of his offspring.
- Do you not understand that I am in the Father and that the Father is in me?
- The words that I speak unto you are not said on my behalf; rather, the Father who dwelleth in me is the one who does the deeds.
(See also John 14:10) The fact that God is present in Jesus does not imply that Jesus is God.It implies that God and Jesus are one and the same.And Jesus demonstrated to us that we, too, may become one with God!But do we then take on the role of God?Without a doubt, this is not the case!
- It is for this reason that I pray: that they all may be one, as thou, Father, art in me and I in thee, that they may also be one in us; and that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
- And I have given them the glory that thou hast given me, in order that they may be one, as we are one.
- (See also John 17:21-22.) Adam and Eve were also considered to be one.
Is this, however, evidence that they are one and the same person?Certainly not.Despite the fact that they are one, they continue to be two people.
What happens if two people marry each other and become one person?Without a doubt, this is not the case.The fact is that they will remain linked in God’s eyes.
The resurrection of the dead comes by man
- This Bible verse is so unambiguous that there isn’t much more that can be said to explain it.
- It asserts that, just as death was brought about by man (Adam and Eve), so too will the resurrection of the dead be brought about by man.
- That implies that Jesus had to be a human being in order for the resurrection of the dead to have occurred through him.
- Take a look at the following for yourself: For, just as death was brought about by man, so too was the resurrection of the dead brought about by man.
In the same way that everyone dies in Adam, everyone will be brought alive in Christ.Then there are the firstfruits, which are Christ; after that there are those who are Christ’s at his coming.Then comes the culmination, when he will have handed the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he will have abolished every rule, authority, and power on the earth.It is necessary for him to continue to reign until he has subdued all of his adversaries.(See 1 Corinthians 15:21-25 for further information.)
God puts everything under Jesus feet
- What is the point of God putting everything beneath his own feet if everything is already his property?
- He has created everything, and as a result, He is the rightful owner of everything.
- In order for this verse to make sense, it must be assumed that Jesus is not God himself, but rather another person: For he hath laid all things beneath his feet.
- However, when he claims that all things have been placed beneath him, it is clear that he is the exception, as it was he who placed all things under him.
(1 Corinthians 15:27) The Bible says:
Jesus can’t do anything of his own
- If he claims that he is unable to do miracles on his own, how did he manage to perform such incredible feats?
- Because God accomplished all of these things THROUGH him: ″I can do nothing of my own accord; as I hear, I judge; and my judgment is just; for I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father who hath sent me.″ ″I can do nothing of my own accord; as I hear, I judge.″ (John 5:30 a.m.) Due to the fact that there is only one God, and there is only one mediator between God and humanity, the man Christ Jesus, who sacrificed himself as a ransom for everyone, and who will be testified to in due course (1 Thessalonians 2:5–6)
Jesus is not God, but Jesus has a God
- As a result, after hearing of your faith in the Lord Jesus and love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you and remembering you in my prayers, in order that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may grant you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.
- (See also Ephesians 1:15-17.) To Mary, Jesus says, ″Do not touch me, for I have not yet ascended to my Father.″ Instead, go to my brethren and tell them, ″I climb unto my Father, as well as your Father; as well as my God, as well as your God.″ (See also John 20:17.)
Jesus has only one God
In his teachings, Jesus asserted that there is only one God. Why didn’t he just state that he is God, as if he were God himself? Wouldn’t that make things a whole lot simpler for everyone? And Jesus responded, ″The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.″ The second commandment is, Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord. (Matthew 12:29)
Jesus is not God, because God is not a human
Because I am God, and not a human being; I am the Holy One who dwells in the midst of thee. In Hosea 11:9, the Bible says, God is not a man, and he is not the son of man either. (Numbers 23:19) (Numbers 23:19) Because he is not a guy. (15:29; 1 Samuel 15:29) Hear this, O Israel: There is only one Lord, the Lord our God. (4:4) (Deuteronomy 6:4)
Jesus died, but God can’t die
- God does not die since He is the source of all life.
- As a result, it became essential for Him to abandon Jesus on the cross.
- And it is for this reason that Jesus cried out, ″God, why have you deserted me?″ (God, why have you forsaken me) (Matthew 15:34) Moreover, when the sixth hour arrived, there was complete darkness across the whole country until the ninth hour.
- After nine hours, Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ″Eloi, Eloi, lama sabbthani?″ (Eloi, Eloi, lama sabbthani?
In other words, ″My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?″ is being understood.(Matthew 15:33-34; Luke 15:33-34)
Jesus is not God, because Jesus doesn’t know what God knows
I swear to you that this generation will not pass away until all of these things have been accomplished. Despite the fact that heaven and earth will pass away, my words will not be forgotten. But no one, not even the angels of heaven, is aware of that day and hour, save for my Father, who knows all. (Matthew 24:34-36; Mark 10:34-36; Luke 10:34-36)
Jesus has a different will than God. Jesus is not God!
Afterwards, after walking a little distance, Jesus fell on his knees and prayed: ″O my Father, if it is possible, please take this cup away from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.″ (Matthew 26:39; Mark 12:39)
Jesus thanks God for hearing him
After that, they removed the stone from the spot where the deceased had been lain. And Jesus raised his eyes to the heavens and murmured, ″Father, I thank you that you have heard my prayer.″ And I knew that thou heardest me at all times; but, I spoke it because of the people who were standing nearby, so that they would believe that thou hadst sent me. (John 11:41-42) (John 11:41-42)
Jesus says that only God is good
And a particular king approached him and said, ″Good Master, what do I need to do in order to obtain eternal life?″ And Jesus responded by saying, ″Why do you call me good?″ There is only one nice person in the world, and that is God. (See Luke 18:18-19 for further information.)
Jesus own words
And this is everlasting life: that they may come to know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent, as the only real God. (John17:3)
Jesus is not God, but the son of God
Then he asks them, ″But who do you think I am?″ he says. And Simon Peter said, ″Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God,″ and he continued. ″Blessed are thou, Simon Barjona,″ Jesus said, referring to the fact that ″flesh and blood has not revealed anything to thee, but my Father who is in heaven has.″ (Matthew 16:15-17; Mark 10:15-17)
Jesus did not anoint himself, but was anointed by God
And no one, save those who have been called by God, such as Aaron, can claim this honor for themselves. In the same way, Christ did not exalt himself by being elevated to the position of high priest, but rather the one who declared to him, ″Thou art my Son, today I have begotten thee.″ (Hebrews 5:4; Hebrews 5:5)
God and Jesus still remain two entities
However, since he was filled with the Holy Spirit, he continued to stare up into heaven, where he saw the glory of God, as well as Jesus standing at God’s right hand. It was then that the Son of Man appeared to him and said, ″Behold, the heavens have been opened, and the Son of Man is standing at the right side of God.″ (See Acts 7:55–56.)
We only have one God, the Father
For though there may be many gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there may be many gods and lords), to us there is only one God, the Father, from whom all things are derived, and we are derived from him; and there is only one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom all things are derived, and we are derived from him. (See 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 for further information).
And we also praise only one God, the Father of Jesus Christ
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly realms in Christ. The apostle Paul (Ephesians 1:3) For more information on this issue, see this article: Is the Trinity biblical? Visit the Stay Biblical Facebook Page.
90 verses says in the bible: Jesus is not God
- The term’son of man’ is also used frequently in the Hebrew texts when referring to individuals (Job 25:6; Psalm 80:17; 144:3; Ezekiel 2:1; 2:3; 2:6-8; 3:1-3).
- God would not have done so because he would not have contradicted Himself by first stating that He is not the son of a man, and then becoming a human being who was referred to as ″the son of man.″ It’s important to remember that God is not the source of confusion.
- Furthermore, human humans, including Jesus, are referred to as’son of man’ in order to separate them from God, who, according to the Bible, is not a’son of man.’ According to the Bible, Jesus denied that he is God.
- Then Jesus talked to a man who had referred to him as ″good,″ asking him, ″Why do you refer to me as good?″ Except for God, there is no one who is good.’ (See also Luke 18:19) I asked him, ″Why are you asking me about what is good?″ he responded.
There is only One who is good; nevertheless, if you seek to enter into life, you must observe the commandments.’ (Matthew 19:17; Mark 12:17) Jesus did not teach his followers that he was the Son of God.Assuming that Jesus was telling people that he was God, the guy would have received praise from Jesus.As a result, Jesus scolded him, declaring that he was not good, i.e., that Jesus did not believe that he was God.God, according to the Bible, is bigger than even Jesus.’My Father is more powerful than I am.’ ‘My father is bigger than all,’ says Jesus in John 14:28.
- (See also John 10:29) If God is bigger than Jesus, he cannot be God, and vice versa.
- The Christian doctrine that the Father and the Son are equal is in direct conflict with the plain teachings of Jesus on the subject.
- ″When you pray, say Our Father who art in heaven,″ Jesus never ordered his disciples to adore him.
″Our Father who art in heaven,″ he said.(See also Luke 11:2) ‘On that day, you are not permitted to ask me any questions.Whatever you ask of the Father in my name, I will grant you.’ (See also John 16:23) ‘The hour has come, and the time is now, when sincere worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeks such to worship him,’ says the Bible.
(See John 4:23.) If Jesus was God, he would have sought out worship for himself and for his followers.Due to the fact that he did not do so, but instead sought worship for God in the sky, he could not be considered God.’That they could know you, the one real God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent,’ Jesus said as he worshipped the one and only true God.(See also John 17:3) ‘He continued to pray to God throughout the night.’ (See also Luke 6:12) For the same reason that the Son of Man did not come in order be served, but in order to serve,’ (See Matthew 20:28 for further information.) What was Jesus’ method of praying to God?
Then he bowed his head to the ground and prayed: ″My Father,″ the story goes.(Matthew 26:39; Mark 12:39) Jesus sent up pleas and requests to the one who could save him from death with loud screams and tears during the days of his earthly existence, and he was heard because of his respectful obedience to the one who could rescue him from death.’ (See also Hebrews 5:7) When Jesus was thrown to the ground, who was he praying to?Was Jesus sobbing uncontrollably to himself, praying to be spared from the cross?
- No individual, whether normal or deranged, will ever pray to himself!
- Without a doubt, the response must be an emphatic ‘No’.
- Jesus was praying to ‘the one and only true God,’ according to the Bible.
- Jesus was a servant of the One who sent him, and he was the Son of God.
Is there any more compelling evidence that Jesus was not God?It is confirmed in the Quran that Jesus urged people to worship just the One and Only True God: ″It is Allah Who is my Lord and your Lord; so, worship Him.″ ″This is a Straight Path,″ says the author.According to the Quran (3:51), The disciples did not accept that Jesus was the Son of God.The Bible’s Acts of the Apostles chronicles the activities of the disciples during a thirty-year period following Jesus’ ascension to the right hand of the Father.At no point did they refer to Jesus as God over this entire span of time.Peter, with the other eleven disciples, stepped before a multitude and declared: ‘Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you via miracles, wonders, and signs that God performed among you through him, as you yourselves know.’ (See Acts 2:22.) God’s servant, according to Peter (as confirmed in Matthew 12:18), and God has glorified his servant Jesus: ‘The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus.’ (See Acts 3:13 for more information.) ‘God brought up his servant,’ says the Bible.
- (See Acts 3:26.) ″We must obey God rather than man,″ Peter declared when confronted with opposition from the authorities.
- Jesus was resurrected by the God of our forefathers.
- (See Acts 5:29-30 for further information).
- The disciples prayed to God in the manner in which they had been instructed by Jesus in Luke 11:2, and they regarded Jesus to be God’s representative.
- ‘They joined their voices in prayer to God,’ says the author.
- ‘Sovereign Lord,’ they said, ″you created the heavens and the earth and the sea, as well as everything that exists in each of them.″ ‘Your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed,’ says the Bible (Acts 4:24).
- ‘of Your holy servant Jesus,’ according to Acts 4:27.
- ‘I am indeed a servant of God,’ says Paul in Acts 4:30.
- (Al-Quran, verse 9:30) According to the Bible, Jesus served as God’s servant.
‘Behold, My servant, whom I have chosen, in whom My heart rejoices,’ declares the Lord.(See Matthew 12:18) Because Jesus is God’s servant, he cannot be considered God.According to the Bible, Jesus was unable to accomplish anything on his own: ‘The son can accomplish nothing on his own; he can only achieve what he sees his Father accomplishing.’ (See also John 5:19) ‘I am incapable of doing anything on my own.’ (John 5:30 a.m.) According to the Bible, Jesus did not believe himself to be on an equal footing with God, and God performed miracles through him.Jesus was also restricted in what he could accomplish: They were astounded, and they praised God for having given such authority to men.’ (See Matthew 9:8) A guy who has been confirmed to you by God via miracles, wonders, and signs that God accomplished through Him while you were present.’ (See Acts 2:22.) The Bible says that Jesus went about doing good and curing everyone who was plagued by the demon because God was with him.(See Acts 10:38 for more information.) If Christ were God, the Bible would simply state that Jesus performed the miracles himself, without making any mention of God or the supernatural.The fact that it was God who provided the power for the miracles demonstrates that God is greater than even Jesus himself.
Furthermore, Jesus’ ability to perform miracles was restricted.The man was not healed the first time Jesus attempted to heal him, and Jesus had to try a second time before the man was healed (Mark 8:22-26).Once upon a time, a woman was cured of her uncontrollable bleeding.The woman walked up behind him and touched his coat, and she was instantly healed of her ailments.
However, Jesus was completely unaware of who had touched him: ‘At that moment, Jesus recognized that his power had been taken away from him.In the midst of the mob, he turned around and said, ‘Who touched my clothes?’ (Matthew 5:30) There were no miracles to be performed there, except for the healing of a few sick persons by laying his hands on their bodies.(Matthew 6:5) It goes without saying that someone with such restrictions cannot be God.Jesus did not have the ability to perform miracles.According to the Bible, angels came to Jesus’ aid when he was in need of assistance.God, on the other hand, does not require any reinforcement.
- God, on the other hand, does not require strengthening since God is All-Powerful.
- If Jesus needed to be bolstered, he couldn’t possibly be God.
- A heavenly messenger appeared to him in the Garden of Gethsemane, bringing him comfort and encouragement.
- (See also Luke 22:43) As soon as the demon left him, ‘angels appeared and began to minister to Him’, says the Bible.
- ‘And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to him,’ says Mark 1:13, ″and he was tempted by Satan.″ (Matthew 1:13) According to the Bible, Jesus desired that God’s will be carried out, saying, ‘not my will, but Yours be done.’ (See also Luke 22:42) ‘I am not seeking my own will, but the will of Him who sent me,’ says the apostle Paul.
- ‘For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of Him who sent me,’ says the Lord Jesus in John 5:30.
- (See also John 6:38) Is it possible that certain members of the coequal Trinity are subordinate to, and less than equal to, others?
- Do they follow the directions of others without question, despite the fact that they have different wills (‘I do not seek my own will’), or do they query the directives of others (‘the will of Him who sent me’)?
- Jesus acknowledges that he has subordinated his own individual will, despite the fact that the Trinitarian theology states that they should all share the same will.
- Should one of the triune partners be forced to forego his or her own desires in order to fulfill the desires of another member of the Trinity?
- Should one of the triune partners be forced to forego his or her own desires in order to fulfill the desires of another member of the Trinity?
- Isn’t it reasonable to expect them all to have the same intentions?
- ‘I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father,’ says Jesus in the Bible, referring to himself and God as two witnesses.
- (See also John 8:17-18:) ‘Do not allow your emotions to be disturbed.
- ‘Put your confidence in God, but also in me.’ (See also John 14:1) If Jesus had been God, he would not have treated God’s witness as if it were independent from his own testimony.
- According to the Bible, Jesus is God’s equal and submissive.
- I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of every woman is man, and the head of Christ is God,’ says the apostle Paul.
- The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 11:3 that In this way, the son himself will be subservient to the one who subordinated everything to him, allowing God to be the center of everything.’ The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:28 that According to the Bible, Jesus gained in wisdom and knowledge.
- God, on the other hand, is All-Knowing and does not require instruction: Jesus increased in wisdom, but God is the only one who is smart.
- He is ‘great and plentiful in power,’ and His comprehension is unfathomable.
- (Psalms 147:5; 147:6) The Bible says, ″And Jesus increased in wisdom.″ (See Luke 2:52.) Even if God does not need to learn, Jesus did: ″Despite the fact that he was a son, he learnt obedience.″ (Hebrews 5:8) God, on the other hand, has limitless knowledge, but Jesus had limited knowledge.
- Because Jesus did not know, he could not be considered all-knowing, and as a result, he could not be considered the God whose knowledge is all-encompassing.
- The Father is the only one who knows the day or the hour, not even the angels in heaven or the son.
- Only He knows what day it is or what time it is.
- (Matthew 13:32) God cannot be tempted ‘in every way – just as we are,’ according to the Bible, even if Jesus was tempted.
- ‘For God cannot be tempted by evil,’ says the Bible (Heb.
- (James 1:13; 2:21) Because God cannot be tempted, but Jesus was, it follows that Jesus was not the Son of God.
- It is written in the Bible that Jesus’ teachings came from God, not from himself.
- When they pressed Jesus for an explanation, he responded simply: ‘My teaching is not mine, but His who sent me.’ (See also John 7:16.) If Jesus had been God, he would not have said this because the doctrine would have been his to teach.
- The Bible claims that Jesus died, but God is unaffected by death.
- Jesus died, according to what the Bible says.
- God is incapable of death.
God is said to be immortal in Romans 1:23 and other passages of Scripture.It is defined as ‘not subject to death’ in this context.This phrase is reserved for God alone.The Bible claims that Jesus was able to live because of God.It is because of the Father that I am able to live.(See also John 6:57) Due to the fact that Jesus was dependent on God for his own existence, he cannot be considered God.
According to the Bible, Jesus was given all of his powers: ‘All power has been given unto me.’ (Matthew 28:18; Mark 12:18) Everyone knows that God is all-powerful; no one can take away God’s abilities; otherwise, God would cease to be God because He would be weak.As a result, Jesus could not possibly be God.According to the Bible, Jesus was instructed and commanded by God: ‘As my Father hath taught me, I speak these things,’ Jesus said (John 8:28) I was given a commandment by the Father, who sent me,’ Jesus said.’I have kept my Father’s commandments,’ says Jesus in John 12:49.(See also John 15:10) God cannot be taught because otherwise God could not be All-Knowing and would be obligated to His teacher.
- Due to the fact that Jesus was taught and commanded by God, Jesus cannot be considered God himself.
- A distinction exists between the teacher and the student, the commander and the commanded.
- The Bible claims that God created Jesus as ‘Lord’!
- Jesus is now both Lord and Christ, according to God’s decree.
- (See Acts 2:36.) ‘Lord’ is used in many ways in the Bible, and others beside God and Jesus are called ‘Lord.’ For example: 1) property owners (Matt.
- 20:8) 2) heads of households (Mark 13:35) (Mark 13:35) 3) slave owners (Matt.
- 10:24) (Matt.
- 10:24) 4) husbands (1 Pet.
- 3:6) (1 Pet.
- 3:6) 5) a son called his father Lord (Matt.
- 21:30) (Matt.
- 21:30) 6) the Roman Emperor was called Lord (Acts 25:26) (Acts 25:26) 7) Roman authorities were called Lord (Matt.
- 27:63) (Matt.
- 27:63) ‘Lord’ is not the same as ‘God.’ ‘Lord’ (the Greek word is kurios) is a masculine title of respect and nobility used many times in the Bible.
- If Jesus was God, then for the Bible to say he was ‘made’ Lord would make no sense.
- Bible says that Jesus was lower than angels ‘But we do see him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus.’ (Hebrews 2:9) God, the Creator of angels, can not be lower than His own creation, but Jesus was.
- Therefore, Jesus was not God.
- Bible says that Jesus called the Father ‘my God’ ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?’ (Matt.
27:46) ‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.’ (See also John 20:17.) ‘the temple of my God the name of my God the city of my God comes down out of heaven from my God.’ (Rev.3:12) Jesus did not think of himself as God, instead Jesus’ God is the same as ours.Bible says that God cannot be seen But Jesus was seen by others ‘no man has seen God at any time.’ (John 1:18) Bible says twice that Jesus was accused of being God But he denied it: According to the Bible, on only two instances the Jews opposed Jesus on the basis that he pretended to be God or equal with God.Had Jesus, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, claimed to be God, he is likely to have been opposed on this basis more frequently.Because in these two instances, when charged, in the one case, with making himself God, and in the other, with making himself equal with God, he denied the charges.In reply to the charge of being an equal with God, he says immediately: ‘The son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do’; and directly after ‘I can of mine own self do nothing.’ (John 5:19, 30) In answer to the charge of making himself God, he appeals to the Jews in substance thus: Your own Scriptures call Moses a god, and your magistrates gods; I am surely not inferior to them, yet I did not call myself God, but only the ‘son’ of God (John 10:34-36).
(John 10:34-36).This is unlikely to have been Jesus’ actual response.Hastings in ‘The Dictionary of the Bible’ says, ‘Whether Jesus used it of himself is doubtful.’ Grolier’s encyclopedia, under the heading ‘Jesus Christ,’ says, ‘it is uncertain whether the Father/Son language (Mark 18:32; Matt.11:25-27 par.; John passim) goes back to Jesus himself.’ A University of Richmond professor, Dr.Robert Alley, after considerable research into newly found ancient documents concludes that: ‘The (Biblical) passages where Jesus talks about the Son of God are later additions.what the church said about him.
- Such a claim of deity for himself would not have been consistent with his entire lifestyle as we can reconstruct.
- For the first three decades after Jesus’ death Christianity continued as a sect within Judaism.
- The first three decades of the existence of the church were within the synagogue.
- That would have been beyond belief if they (the followers) had boldly proclaimed the deity of Jesus.’ Assuming Jesus did say that he was ‘son’ of God.
- What did it mean?
- We first need to know the language of his people, the language of the Jews to whom he was speaking.
- The Bible says God had many ‘sons’ First, most people think there are no other verses that contradict or give equal divine sonship to other persons in the Old or New Testament.
- For Jesus to be called son of God, does not make him a true son of God, other wise Adam, Jacob, Ephraim and many more should also be considered as been sons of God as such they should be worshiped too according to such method.
- Adam: ‘Adam, which was the son of God.’ (Luke 3:38) Jacob is God’s son and firstborn: ‘Israel is my son, even my firstborn.’ (Exodus 4:22) Solomon: ‘I will be his father, and he shall be my son.’ (2 Samuel 7:13-14) Ephraim: ‘for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.’ (Jeremiah 31:9) Because God is the firstborn, the ordinary people are referred to as God’s sons: ‘Ye are the children of the Lord your God,’ says the Bible.
- (See Deuteronomy 14:1 for further information.) –
Ten reasons why Jesus is not God
- The term ″son of man″ is also used frequently in the Hebrew scriptures to refer to individuals (Job 25:6; Psalm 80:17; 144:3; Ezekiel 2:1; 2:3; 2:6-8; 3:1-3).
- It is unlikely that God would have done so because he would not have wanted to contradict Himself by first declaring that He is not the son of a man and then becoming a human being who was referred to as ″the son of man.″ You should keep in mind that God is not the author of ambiguity.
- Furthermore, human beings, including Jesus, are referred to as’sons of man’ in order to distinguish them from God, who, according to the Bible, is not a’son of man.’ Apparently, Jesus denied that he was God, according to the Bible.
- ‘Why do you call me good?’ Jesus inquired of the man who had referred to him as ‘good.’ With the exception of the Almighty, no one is truly good.’ (Luke 18:19) The Bible states that and asked him, ″Why are you asking me about what is good?″ he answered.
However, if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments, because there is only One who is good.’ The Bible says (Matthew 19:17) that People were not taught that Jesus was God because he did not teach them that.If Jesus had been telling people that he was God, he would have given the man a compliment.As a result, Jesus rebuked him, declaring that he was not good, i.e., that Jesus did not believe that he was the Creator.God, according to the Bible, is superior to Jesus.’My Father is greater than I am,’ says the son of Abraham.
- ‘My father is greater than all,’ says Jesus (John 14:28).
- In the Bible, this is recorded in John 10:29.
- If God is greater than Jesus, Jesus cannot be God.
Christians believe that the Father and son are equals, which is in direct conflict with Jesus’s explicit teachings.’When you pray, say ‘Our Father who art in heaven,″ Jesus never instructed his disciples to worship him.In the book of Luke, verse 2 says, On that day, you will not be permitted to ask me any questions.’ Any request you make in my name will be granted.
(15:23) According to John 16:23 ‘The hour has come, and the time is now, for true worshippers to worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeks such to worship him,’ says the Bible.The Bible says in John 4:23 that Jesus, if he were God, would have sought worship for himself rather than other people.Therefore, because he did not do so and instead sought worship for God in the heavens, he could not possibly be the creator of the universe.’That they might know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent,’ said Jesus of his worship of the one and only true God.
The Bible states in John 17:3 that In his prayers to God, he remained silent all night.(See Luke 6:12 for more information.) For the same reason that the Son of Man did not come in order to serve, but in order to serve,’ The Bible says (Matthew 20:28) that What was Jesus’ method of praying to the Father?In prayer to his Father, he fell on his face to the ground and cried out: ″My Father.″ In Matthew 26:39, Jesus says: Jesus offered up prayers and petitions to the one who could save him from death with loud cries and tears during the days of his earthly life, and he was heard because of his reverent submission to the one who could save him from death.
- The Bible says in Hebrews 5:7 that Jesus fell to his knees and prayed, but no one heard him.
- What if Jesus was crying out to himself, begging to be spared from the horrors of death?
- The sane and insane are both incapable of praying for themselves!
- There can’t be any doubt that the answer is ″No.″ ″The one and only true God,″ Jesus was pleading.
God the Son was the one who sent him, and he was the servant of that One.It is difficult to imagine a more compelling argument that Jesus did not exist.It is confirmed in the Quran that Jesus urged people to worship only the One and Only True God: ″It is Allah who is my Lord and your Lord; therefore, worship Him.″ ‘It is a Straight Path,’ says the Guide.3.51 in the Qur’an It was not believed by the disciples that Jesus was God.When Jesus was raised from the dead, the disciples went on a flurry of activity that lasted thirty years, according to the book of Acts in the Bible.No one ever referred to Jesus as ″God″ during this time period.
- For example, Peter stood up with the eleven disciples and addressed a large crowd, saying, ‘Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you through miracles, wonders, and signs, which God performed among you through him, as you yourselves are aware.’ (See Acts 2:22 for further information.) According to Peter, Jesus was a servant of God, as evidenced by Matthew 12:18, which states, ″The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus.″ (See Acts 3:13 for further information.) A servant of God has been raised up by God, (See Acts 3:26 for further information.) ″We must obey God rather than men!″ Peter declared when confronted with opposition from the authorities.
- We believe Jesus was raised by the God of our forefathers The Bible says in Acts 5:29-30 that In accordance with Jesus’ command in Luke 11:2, the disciples prayed to God and considered Jesus to be God’s servant, according to Luke 11:3.
- In prayer to God, they raised their voices in unison.’ It was said that ″Sovereign Lord,″ who created the heavens and earth as well as the sea, and everything in them, was the source of their praise.
- ‘your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed,’ says the Bible (Acts 4:24).
- of Your holy servant Jesus,’ according to Acts 4:27.
- ‘I am truly a servant of God,’ says the apostle Paul (Acts 4:30).
- (9:30 a.m., Qur’an) Because Jesus was God’s servant, according to the Bible, I have chosen this servant whom I have chosen, and My soul is pleased with him.’ The Bible says (Matthew 12:18).
- Jesus cannot be God because he is God’s servant, and therefore cannot be God himself.
- Because Jesus was unable to do anything on his own, according to the Bible, he relied on his Father for guidance: ″The son can perform no independent acts; he can only imitate his father’s actions.″ The Bible states in John 5:19 that Nothing I can do on my own is possible.
(John 5:35 p.m.According to the Bible, Jesus did not consider himself to be on an equal footing with God, and God performed miracles through him.However, Jesus was limited in what he could accomplish, including the following: ‘However, when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck and glorified God for having given such authority to men.’ Jesus said in Matthew 9:8 A man who has been attested to you by God through miracles, wonders, and signs that God performed through Him while you were present.(See Acts 2:22 for further information.) God was with him as he went about doing good and healing everyone who was oppressed by the devil.’ (See Acts 10:38 for further information.) It is possible that if Christ were God, the Bible would simply state that Jesus performed the miracles himself, with no mention of God.Given that it was God who provided the power for the miracles, it demonstrates that God is superior to Jesus.Jesus’ ability to perform miracles was also restricted.
When Jesus attempted to heal a blind man, the man did not respond to the first attempt, and Jesus had to try again (Mark 8:22-26).Once upon a time, a woman was cured of her uncontrollable bleeding condition.When the woman approached him from behind and touched his cloak, she was instantly healed.He was unaware of who had touched him, however.
When Jesus realized his power had been drained, he began to sob.″Who touched my clothes?″ he inquired as he turned around in the crowd.(Matthew 5:15) A few sick people were healed after he laid his hands on them, but he couldn’t perform any miracles.6:5 (Matthew) Someone with such limitations cannot be God, it goes without saying.Jesus did not possess the ability to perform miracles.According to the Bible, angels came to Jesus’ aid when he was in need.
- In contrast, God does not require reinforcement.
- Humans require reinforcement; God, on the other hand, does not require such reinforcement because God is All-Pervasive.
- Obviously, he is not God because he requires assistance.
- A heavenly messenger appeared to him in the Garden of Gethsemane, bringing him comfort and strength.
- ″ (Luke 22:43) The Bible states that And behold, angels appeared and began to minister to Him as the devil had left him.
- Jesus spent forty days in the wilderness, being tempted by Satan.
- He was with the wild animals, and angels were ministering to him.’ (Mark 1:13) ″And he was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan.″ In the book of Mark, verse 13 says, ‘Not my will, but Your will be done,’ Jesus said in the Bible, referring to God’s will being fulfilled.
- (Luke 22:42) The Bible states that In seeking the will of God, I am not seeking my own will, but the will of Him who has sent me.″ John 5:30 says, ″For I did not come down from heaven to do my own will, but the will of Him who sent me.″ ″I did not come down from heaven to do my own will,″ says the author.
- In the Bible, this is stated as John 6:38.
- Does it appear that some members of the coequal Trinity are subordinate to, and less than equal to, others?
- Is it possible for them to follow the commands of others without question, despite the fact that they have different wills (‘I do not seek my own will’)?
- In his confession, Jesus acknowledges that his own distinct will has been subordinated, yet according to the doctrine of the Trinity, they are all supposed to have the same will.
- Should one of the triune partners be forced to forego his or her own desires in order to fulfill the desires of another member of the Trinity?
- Should one of the triune partners be forced to forego his or her own desires in order to fulfill the desires of another member of the Triune?
- They should all have the same will, shouldn’t they?
- ‘I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father,’ Jesus said in the Bible, referring to himself and God as two witnesses.
- (7:17-18) (See also John 3:16) Keep your hearts from becoming troubled.’ Have faith in God, and have faith in me, as well.
- In the book of John, verse 1, we read: It is impossible to believe that Jesus was God if He did not regard the evidence of God’s presence as being distinct from his own.
- Apparently, according to the Bible, Jesus is under the authority of the Father.
- I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of every woman is man, and the head of Christ is God,’ says the Apostle Paul.
- Corinthians 11:3 (New International Version) In this way, the son himself will be subject to the one who subordinated everything to him, allowing God to be the center of everything.
- The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:28 According to the Bible, Jesus grew in knowledge and wisdom.
- God, on the other hand, is All-Knowing and does not require any instruction.
- God, on the other hand, is infinitely wise.
- His understanding is limitless,’ says our Lord, ″and His power is immeasurable.″ In the book of Psalms, verse 5, the author says, The Bible says that Jesus’ wisdom grew.
- Jesus says this in Luke 2:52.
- Even though God does not need to learn, Jesus did: ‘Even though he was a son, he learned obedience,’ says the Bible.
- In the book of Hebrews, verse 8 says, God, on the other hand, has infinite knowledge, whereas Jesus had limited understanding.
- Because Jesus did not know, he could not be considered all-knowing, and as a result, he could not be considered the God whose knowledge is exhaustive.
- ‘No one, not even the angels in heaven, nor the son, but only the Father, knows what day or what hour it is.’ – Jesus says this in the Gospel of Mark, verse 32.
- It says in the Bible that Jesus was tempted, but that God cannot be tempted in the same way that we are.
- For God cannot be tempted by evil, according to Hebrews 4:15.
- (James 1:13; Revelation 2:11) God cannot be tempted, but Jesus was, and as a result, Jesus could not be considered God.
According to the Bible, Jesus’ teachings came from God, not from himself.When they pressed Jesus for an explanation, he responded with the words ″My teaching is not mine, but His who sent me.″ The Bible says in John 7:16 that If Jesus had been God, he would not have said this because the doctrine would have been his to share with the people.Jesus died, according to the Bible; however, God is unaffected by death.Jesus died, according to what the Bible teaches.No one can die except for the Lord Jesus Christ.God is said to be immortal in Romans 1:23 and other passages.
Death is not a possibility because one is considered immortal.Specifically, God is referred to as ″the Almighty.″ Because of God, according to the Bible, Jesus lived.Because of the Father, I am able to live.The Bible says in John 6:57 that Due to the fact that Jesus was dependent on God for his very existence, he cannot be considered God.According to the Bible, Jesus was granted all of his powers: ‘All power has been given unto me,’ declares Jesus.
- The Bible says (Matthew 28:18) Everyone knows that God is all-powerful; no one can take away God’s abilities; otherwise, God would cease to be God due to His weakness.
- So Jesus could not be God, according to the logic of the situation.
- ‘As my Father hath taught me, I speak these things,’ the Bible states of Jesus’ instruction and order from God (John 8:28) I was given a mandate by the Father, who sent me,’ I said.
- ‘I have followed the instructions of my Father,’ says Jesus in John 12:49.
- Jesus said this in the Gospel of John.
- (John 15:10) Because God is All-Knowing, no one can teach Him, or else He would be obligated to His instructor.
- The fact that Jesus was taught and ordered by God eliminates the possibility that Jesus is the Creator God.
- A distinction exists between the instructor and the pupil, between the commander and those who are being commanded.
- It is written in the Bible that God appointed Jesus as ‘Lord’.
- Jesus is now both Lord and Christ, thanks to God’s intervention.
- (See Acts 2:36 for further information.) The term ‘Lord’ is used in a variety of contexts throughout the Bible, and others other than God and Jesus are addressed as ‘Lord.’ As an illustration: Matthew 20:8 identifies two types of property owners: 1) landowners, and 2) heads of household (Mark 13:35) 3) the owners of slaves (Matt.
- 10:24) 4) Husbands and wives (1 Pet.
- 3:6) 5) A son addressed his father as ″Lord″ (Matt.
- 21:30) 6) The Roman Emperor was addressed as ″Lord″ (Acts 25:26) 7) The Roman authorities were referred to as Lords (Matt.
- 27:63) The term ‘Lord’ is not synonymous with the term ‘God.’ The title ‘Lord’ (from the Greek word kurios) is a masculine title of honor and nobility that appears numerous times in the Bible.
- If Jesus was God, then the Bible’s claim that he was’made’ Lord would be illogical and contradictory.
- According to the Bible, Jesus was on a lower level than angels.
- Jesus, on the other hand, is seen as having been formed for a short time lower than the angels,’ says the author.
(See also Hebrews 2:9) God, the Creator of angels, can never be lowered to the level of His own creation, but that is exactly what Jesus was.As a result, Jesus was not the Son of God.According to the Bible, Jesus addressed the Father as’my God,’ saying, ‘My God, My God, why have You deserted me?’ 28:46) (Matthew 27:46) In the words of the Apostle Paul, ″I climb to My Father, Your Father, and My God, Your God.″ The Bible says in John 20:17 that My God sends the temple of my God, the name of my God, and the city of my God to earth from the heights of the heavens.(Revelation 3:12) Jesus did not consider himself to be God; rather, Jesus’ God is the same as ours, according to the Bible.The Bible claims that God cannot be seen, although others have reported seeing Jesus.’No one has ever seen God,’ the Bible states.
(See also John 1:18.) The Bible mentions two instances in which Jesus was accused of being God.He, on the other hand, refuted it: During just two instances, according to the Bible, did the Jews challenge Jesus on the grounds that he purported to be God or to be on an equal level with God.If Jesus, may God’s compassion and blessings be upon him, had claimed to be God, he would almost certainly have been confronted with opposition on this grounds more frequently.We know this because, in both of these cases where he was accused of, in the first, of making himself God and, in the second, of making himself equal with God, he flatly repudiated the claims.Then, in response to the accusation that he is on an equal footing with God, he promptly states, ″The son can do nothing of himself save what he watches the Father do,″ and immediately after that, ″I can do nothing of my own self.″ (See also John 5:19, 30.) In response to the claim that he had declared himself God, Jesus makes the following substantive plea to the Jews: ″Your own Scriptures refer to Moses as a god, and your magistrates as gods; I am certainly not inferior to them, but I did not refer to myself as God, but merely as the ″son″ of God″ (John 10:34-36).It’s improbable that this was Jesus’ genuine response to the question.
- According to Hastings in ‘The Dictionary of the Bible,’ it seems questionable that Jesus used it of himself.
- It is unclear if the Father/Son terminology (Mark 18:32; Matt.
- 11:25-27 par.
- ; John passim) can be traced back to Jesus himself, according to Grolier’s encyclopedia, which states under the title ‘Jesus Christ’ that the phrase is ″uncertain.″ Dr.
- Robert Alley of the University of Richmond, after extensive investigation into newly discovered historical texts, has come to the following conclusion: ‘The (Biblical) sections where Jesus speaks of the Son of God are later additions.
- what the church claimed about him.’ According to what we can reconstruct of his life, such a claim to god for himself would have been inconsistent with his entire way of existence.
- Following Jesus’ death, Christianity continued to exist as a sect inside Judaism for the first three decades following his death.
- The synagogue se
