Jesus said:”I and My Father are One”..Why do Christians quote this verse?

By Sami Zaatari

Often when debates come up with Christians on the divinity of Christ, the passage from chapter ten in the book of John comes up; this passage is verse 30, which basically reads:

 

30 I and my Father are one

 Now I don’t understand why many Christians would quote this verse, specifically Trinitarians, because what does this verse prove? Trinitarians do not believe Jesus is the Father, so why do they quote it? Are they quoting it to try and show that Jesus is equal to the Father? Well that isn’t true, since the Gospel of John shows the opposite, in fact if we quote one verse back we read:

 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

This is verse 29, it comes right before verse 30, and in verse 29 Jesus says the Father is greater than ALL, this obviously includes Jesus since he is not the Father. So therefore how Christians try and assume that this verse shows equality between Jesus and the Father is beyond me.

 In fact this is not the first time that Jesus says the Father is greater than him, he does it again later:

28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I (John 14:28)

So here we once again have Jesus claiming the Father is greater than him, so how is Jesus equal to the Father when Jesus says the contrary? Now Christians have come up with a way of trying to explain this verse off, they say that Jesus was talking as a man here, that as a man the Father is greater than him, they try and say that the Father meant he is greater than Jesus in rank and authority and not in essence.

However so what did Jesus mean in John 10 when Jesus said the Father is greater than ALL? Jesus placed himself in the category of ALL people, so therefore the Christian response will not work for John 10:29. It must be said though that the Christian response does not work for John chapter 14:28 neither, because the Christian argues from silence and is arguing something they have yet to prove. Christians cannot prove that Jesus has 2 natures, they can never get a single quote from the lips of Jesus saying I am man and Divine, that I have 2 natures and I gave one up and took on the man nature, this is non-existent, so therefore the response is from silence provided with no proof or a solid basis.

 1-The fact is that the Bible shows that the Father is greater than Jesus in essence, the Father is all-knowing and Jesus is not.

 2-The Father gives Jesus everything from miracle to doctrine.

 3-Jesus begs the Father to save him, obviously showing that life and death is controlled by the Father and NOT Jesus. 

 For all these arguments the Christian will say as man Jesus is not all-knowing, as man Jesus receives things from the Father, however so I will kindly ask the Christian bring this proof from the words of Jesus, they shall never be able to do it, this doctrine is an invention and not something to be found from Jesus.

So therefore in conclusion, John 10:30 proves nothing in support of the divinity of Jesus, it does not show equality, since Jesus made it clear that the Father is greater than him, so therefore Jesus is not equal with the Father.

And Jesus was a prophet of God and Allah knows Best!

    Important Note:
    Below, we will see how Jesus in John 8:58 didn’t say “I AM”. He rather said “I HAVE (seen Abraham before he was even born)”. See the proofs from the Greek language below!

    John 8:58’s deliberate mistranslation of Jesus saying “I AM” with new evidence from the Greek language!
    The sections of this article are:
    1- The text of John 8:58.
    (a)- Jesus was the foretold Messiah and the greatest and final Jewish Prophet.
    (i)- Jesus also was the heir who will inherit the earth.
    2- The Greek text of John 8:58. My detailed analysis.
    (a)- Jesus didn’t even say it in Greek!
    3- Rebuttal from JewsforJudaism.org. Must read!
    4- Conclusion.

    1- The text of John 8:58:
    Throughout the Bible, Jesus Christ is recorded to have made many claims regarding how GOD Almighty is Higher and Greater than him. These statements should be clear enough to demonstrate and prove that Jesus Christ, the Messiah (anointed, chosen to be the lord/leader/master of the Jews, their final Prophet), is no more than a creation of GOD Almighty. However, Christians often bring few verses that supposedly prove otherwise; that Jesus is GOD Almighty Himself. Such verses are: John 1, John 8:58, Colossians 1:15-16 and perhaps few others. This article will analyze John 8:58 in great details to find out whether or not their claims are true.
    Here is how John 8 reads:
    (Pay attention to the red emphasis below)
    John 8
    1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
    2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them.
    3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group
    4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery.
    5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?”
    6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger.
    7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”
    8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
    9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there.
    10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
    11 “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

    The Validity of Jesus’ Testimony
    12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
    13 The Pharisees challenged him, “Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid.”
    14 Jesus answered, “Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going.
    15 You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one.
    16 But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me.
    17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid.
    18 I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me.”
    19 Then they asked him, “Where is your father?” “You do not know me or my Father,” Jesus replied. “If you knew me, you would know my Father also.”
    20 He spoke these words while teaching in the temple area near the place where the offerings were put. Yet no one seized him, because his time had not yet come.
    21 Once more Jesus said to them, “I am going away, and you will look for me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come.”
    22 This made the Jews ask, “Will he kill himself? Is that why he says, ‘Where I go, you cannot come’?”
    23 But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.
    24 I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins.”
    25 “Who are you?” they asked. “Just what I have been claiming all along,” Jesus replied.
    26 “I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is reliable, and what I have heard from him I tell the world.”
    27 They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father.
    28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am the one I claim to be and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me.
    29 The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him.”
    30 Even as he spoke, many put their faith in him.

    The Children of Abraham
    31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.
    32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
    33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”
    34 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.
    35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.
    36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
    37 I know you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are ready to kill me, because you have no room for my word.
    38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you do what you have heard from your father.”
    39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do the things Abraham did.
    40 As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things.
    41 You are doing the things your own father does.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.”

    The Children of the Devil
    42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me.
    43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say.
    44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
    45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!
    46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me?
    47 He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
    The Claims of Jesus About Himself
    48 The Jews answered him, “Aren’t we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?”
    49 “I am not possessed by a demon,” said Jesus, “but I honor my Father and you dishonor me.
    50 I am not seeking glory for myself; but there is one who seeks it, and he is the judge.
    51 I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.”
    52 At this the Jews exclaimed, “Now we know that you are demon-possessed! Abraham died and so did the prophets, yet you say that if anyone keeps your word, he will never taste death.
    53 Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?”
    54 Jesus replied, “If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me.
    55 Though you do not know him, I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and keep his word.
    56 Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.”
    57 “You are not yet fifty years old,” the Jews said to him, “and you have seen Abraham!”
    58 “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am (I have seen Abraham before he was even born)!”
    Jesus here was abruptly interrupted by the Jews who got fed up from him. See the next verse below. They thought that he was insulting their intelligence and their cherished faith by talking blasphemous garbage (such as Abraham rejoiced for him (John 8:56) and other things). It is clear that Jesus was most likely interrupted and wasn’t heard finishing up his sentence. Also, the context of Jesus’ words were about seeing Abraham before he was even born. This is nothing new in the Bible. In the Old Testament, we read:
    “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. (From the NIV Bible, Jeremiah 1:5)”
    Since Jesus was created from the Word of GOD Almighty, and since also our human-spirits are also created from the Holy Spirit, and since Jesus was a Word from the Word of Allah Almighty, then it is quite possible for him to have known, or seen the records of the future human-creations that were going to be created on earth, such as Abraham and others. After all, Allah Almighty uses Angels, Spirits and other created Beings of His to create creations under His Command. Things in the spiritual realm are different. Existence in the spiritual world, including our spirits, is Eternal. Our earthly bodies are not Eternal. So, Jesus having a prior knowledge about Abraham’s spirit is nothing unusual in the spiritual world.
    • Abraham here was used by Jesus because the Jews used him as their highest and greatest Prophet against Jesus. So it wasn’t Jesus who brought up Abraham. It was the Jews. Otherwise, Jesus would not have mentioned Abraham or any earthly creation. See verse 33 above.

    • Also, Jesus is the foretold Messiah, the anointed/selected final and greatest Prophet for the Jews, who will come and establish peace on earth and rule the earth in the end. The Old Testament makes it clear that the Messiah will inherit and rule the earth [1] [2]. See the sub-section below for more details.

    • However, we must always never forget that the text of the Bible is neither genuine nor original. The Bible’s books and gospels, according to its own translators and theologians [2] [3], were

    1. Written by mysterious men.
    2. Written by an unknown number of men.
    3. Written in unknown places.
    4. Written in unknown dates.

    Furthermore, if Jesus declared to be the Yahweh Almighty (I am What I am) in Exodus 3, then he would not have hid himself and slipped away! Use your heads, O Christians, and think about this:
    1- Examine what Yahweh Almighty did when He Declared Himself to be “I am What I am”. What did He do? He Revealed His Majesty, Glory and Power! I could only imagine Moses could hardly stand on his feet from the overwhelming fear that he experienced!
    2- Jesus, when he supposedly declared The Ultimate and Final Statement about himself being the “I am”, what did he do? He hid himself and ran away from the beating. This is what he did after he willingly decided to declare his Ultimate and Final Statement about his being and supposed deity. Do you still fail to see the overwhelming inconsistency here?
    3- Jesus’ supposed statement, “I am”, was documented on paper in Greek. Yahweh Almighty’s Statement in Exodus 3 was in Hebrew. The two languages are not only far too different from each others, but the two statements are also not the same.
    • “I am” is not the same as “I am What I am”.
    Ample more indisputable proofs and points on this are presented below. Also, the Greek main-section below has tons of indisputable proofs as well.
    59 At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.
    There are few important notes to mention here:
    1- In verse 29, Jesus says that he only does what pleases GOD Almighty.
    2- In verses 33, 39, 53 and 57, the Jews declare that they are the descendants of Abraham.
    3- In verse 37, Jesus confirms that they are Abraham’s descendants.
    4- In verse 57, the Jews say that Jesus never saw Abraham.
    5- (Ample proofs from the Greek language, below, are provided for this one) In verse 58, Jesus DID NOT SAY “I AM”. He rather said, “I HAVE (seen Abraham before he was even born)”. The following analysis give further proofs for this:
    • The context of Jesus’ statement is clearly about whether or not he saw Abraham.

    • When GOD Almighty revealed Himself to Moses in Exodus 3, and told him “I am what I am”, He, the Almighty, revealed with it His Majesty and Glory. Jesus, when said “I have”, he ran from the rocks that were hurled at him from the angry crowd.

    • GOD Almighty in Exodus 3 Spoke to Moses in Hebrew, while Jesus in John 8:58, spoke it in Aramaic, and the original Aramaic is lost. All what he have today is a Greek translation for the original.

    • The “I AM” in John 8:58 is a desperate mistranslation, because even if we take it to be right, it still doesn’t say “I am what I am”.

    • If Jesus truly wanted to say “I AM” in reference to Exodus 3, then he should’ve said before Adam or humanity I AM WHAT I AM; not Abraham.
    6- It is also highly probable that Jesus was interrupted by the Jews picking up rocks and hurling them at him, hence, he was only recorded to have said “I HAVE” because he wasn’t able to finish his sentence.
    • This point, while it may sound very lame and weak, but in reality is quite possible and sound!

    (a)- Jesus was the foretold Messiah and the greatest and final Jewish Prophet:
    Jesus Christ was the foretold Messiah (anointed, chosen, selected). He was the final and greatest Prophet to the Jews. That is why he is the Messiah. A Messiah is a selected King. This means all of the Jews’ kings were Messiahs. The Messiah is also the king who will establish the final peace on earth. He is also the Messiah because he will inherit the earth after he defeats the anti-Christ. These points are covered with Biblical references and analysis at:
    1. Jesus is only the heir of GOD Almighty on planet earth; not on the entire Universe.

    2. Does the word “Messiah” really mean GOD? or does it even have anything to do with GOD’s Deity?
    So most certainly, Jesus being the heir of GOD Almighty doesn’t make him GOD Almighty Himself, nor the son of GOD Almighty. Jesus will only inherit the earth. It is a symbolic speech that means that he will rule over earth. The earth will still be under the full authority of GOD Almighty. “Son of GOD” in the original Hebrew means servant of GOD. This is proven in the following articles:
    1. “Son of God” literally means “Servant of God” in Hebrew. Bible agrees with Islam, not with pagan trinity and today’s wrong and twisted translations of “Son of God”.

    2. The Bible directly claims that ANY “Son of GOD” is a “God”! (Refutation to Jesus’ being God meaning that he is GOD Almighty).

    3. “Son of GOD” conflict between the Bible and the Noble Quran.

    4. The definition of “Son of God” in Islam.

    5. Son of GOD: Some Muslims’ Misconception.

    6. “Son of Man” does not mean “GOD” or “Son of GOD”.

    7. Can we trust the Son of Man?

    8. Does calling Jesus “Son of God” prove that he is GOD?

    9. Rebuttal to Sam Shamoun’s “The Incomprehensible Nature of God and his Son” article. Thoroughly refuting and exposing Sam Shamoun’s trinity-lies and absurdities in Proverbs 30:4 where he tried to falsely prove trinity through it.

    2- The Greek texts of John 8:58:
    Let us look at John 8:58 in Greek:
    58 εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Ἰησοῦς• ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, πρὶν Ἀβραὰμ γενέσθαι ἐγὼ εἰμί.
    ἐγὼ (egó) was translated as I.
    εἰμί (eimi) was translated as am.
    • According to Strong’s Greek Dictionary, eimi (εἰμί or εἰμὶ) means:

    “am, have been, it is I, was.

    The first person singular present indicative; a prolonged form of a primary and defective verb; I exist (used only when emphatic) — am, have been, X it is I, was. See also ei, eien, einai, heis kath heis, en, esomai, esmen, este, esti, kerdos, isthi, o.”

    “NASB Word Usage
    accompanied* (1), accompany* (2), am (138), amount (1), amounts (1), appear* (1), asserted* (1), become* (5), been (45), been* (1), being (26), belong (3), belonged* (1), belonging (1), belonging* (1), belongs (4), bring* (1), came (1), come (5), consist (1), crave* (1), depends* (1), do (1), done* (1), exist (3), existed (4), existed* (1), falls (1), found (1), had (8), happen (4), have (2), have come (1), lived (1), mean (1), mean* (2), means (7), meant (2), originate (1), owns (1), remain (3), remained (1), rest (1), sided (1), stayed (2), themselves (1), there (6), turn (1).”

    • Also, according to Strong’s Greek Dictionary, egó (ἐγώ) means:

    “I, me.

    A primary pronoun of the first person I (only expressed when emphatic) — I, me. For the other cases and the plural see eme, emoi, emou, hemas, hemeis, hemin, hemon, etc.”

    • Also, according to Kypros.org’s dictionary, eimai (είμαι), which is a sister word of eimi (εἰμί), means “have”. The following examples prove this:

    – “have a good head for” reads in Greek as:

    είμαι καλός σε, θυμάμαι καλά (eimai kalos se, thymamai kala)

    – “have one’s hands full”

    είμαι απασχολημένος (eimai apascholimenos)

    • Also, the same dictionary, Kypros.org’s dictionary, declares that eimai (είμαι) also means “am”:

    – am = είμαι, έιμαι
    eimai, eimai

    • Also, according to the otenet.gr online dictionary, eimai (είμαι) also means “I am”:

    – είμαι υπόχρεως = I am indebted

    So eimi (εἰμί) and eimai (είμαι) can mean have, am, and few other meanings depending on the sentence and the context.
    See the following for more proofs regarding eimi (εἰμί).

    Furthermore, in other verses in the New Testament, the Greek of the latter word was translated as “have”:
    1- John 3:28 αὐτοὶ ὑμεῖς μοι μαρτυρεῖτε ὅτι εἶπον ἐγὼ / ὅτι• οὐκ εἰμὶ ἐγὼ ὁ Χριστός, ἀλλ’ ὅτι ἀπεσταλμένος εἰμὶ ἔμπροσθεν ἐκείνου.
    “You yourselves testify that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent before him.'”
    Furthermore, the following ample English translations further confirm this:
    1. John 3:28 (New American Standard Bible)
    28 “You yourselves are my witnesses that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent ahead of Him.’

    2. John 3:28 (Amplified Bible)
    28 You yourselves are my witnesses [you personally bear me out] that I stated, I am not the Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah), but I have [only] been sent before Him [in advance of Him, to be His appointed forerunner, His messenger, His announcer].

    3. John 3:28 (English Standard Version)
    28You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ, but I have been sent before him.’

    4. John 3:28 (New King James Version)
    28 You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent before Him.’

    5. John 3:28 (Young’s Literal Translation)
    28 ye yourselves do testify to me that I said, I am not the Christ, but, that I am having been sent before him;

    6. John 3:28 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
    28 You yourselves can testify that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah, but I’ve been sent ahead of Him.’

    7. John 3:28 (New International Reader’s Version)
    28 You yourselves are witnesses that I said, ‘I am not the Christ. I was sent ahead of him.’

    8. John 3:28 (Worldwide English (New Testament))
    28 You yourselves heard what I said. I am not the Christ but I have been sent ahead of the Christ.

    So what did we learn here?
    1- εἰμὶ, while it means “am”, but it could also mean “have been, was”, or be used in reference to something that happened in the past (before the present).
    2- As I already demonstrated in the previous main-section, the context of Jesus’ response clearly and indisputably referred to Jesus have already seen Abraham before the latter was even born.
    3- So even if you still insist on translating it as “I am”, you still couldn’t deny that in both John 3:28 and John 8:58, above, the “I am” was 100% referring to the past, which in English it would be “I have”.
    4- In all of this, there is not a shred of evidence that suggests that Jesus was declaring to be the “I am What I am” of Yahweh Almighty in Exodus 3.
    • Even Yahweh’s Statement in Exodus 3 is not only unique to Him. How many billions and trillions of times did humans throughout history and their lives say I am what I am, or I am who I am? How times did people say things such as: “Accept me for who I am” and other endless similar statements?
    5- It is clear that those who insist on magnifying Jesus to this level (the level of Exodus 3), have no evidence whatsoever to support their claim, and they are nothing but desperate blasphemers. They constantly take gigantic leaps in blasphemy to prove their false religion of “conjecture”, christianity, which Allah Almighty Had summed up this entire false religion into this Word.
    Indeed, the false religion of christianity is no more than a conjecture of men!

    (a)- Jesus didn’t even say it in Greek!
    Let us also not forget a very very important point here, and that is Jesus did not even speak these words in Greek. He spoke them in Aramaic, and we do not have the original texts of Jesus’ words. According to the Bible’s own theologians, the Bible’s books and gospels [2] [3] were:
    1. Written by mysterious men.
    2. Written by an unknown number of men.
    3. Written in unknown places.
    4. Written in unknown dates.
    5. Contain “fictions”, and the original manuscripts “had been lost”, and contain “fairy tails and fables”.
    What we have today from Greek is a mere translation to what Jesus Christ had supposedly said. Translations are not originals. Thus, we don’t even know what Jesus said in Aramaic to begin with. So the bottom line here is this:
    1- The trinitarians have yet to prove that Jesus did say “I am” in Aramaic.
    2- Jesus did refer to himself as the “I AM” of Yahweh Almighty in Exodus 3:14.
    Not only that, but as I explained above, it is odd that when Jesus decided to unveil his real deity, and claimed to be the “I AM”, he ran from the group of people who wanted to beat him up! This all happened right after Jesus supposedly gave his Ultimate Statement about his real deity! Of course, Jesus never gave such statement (the I AM in Exodus 3:14). This is only the trinitarians’ desperate wishes and blasphemies. But what matters here is you! Do you see how twisted and blasphemous the trinitarians’ logic is?

    3- Rebuttal from JewsForJudaism.org:
    From http://www.jewsforjudaism.com/web/faq/faq128.html:
    Question: Is the author of the Gospel of John claiming that Jesus is part of a tri-unity god when he has Jesus say, “before Abraham came into being, I am” (John 8:58)?
    Answer: John 8:56-58 states: “‘Abraham your father rejoiced to see my day; and he saw it, and was glad.’ The Jews therefore said to him: ‘You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?’ Jesus said to them: ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham came into being, I am.'”
    Trinitarians argue that the Greek words ego eimi (“I am”), allegedly spoken by Jesus (John 8:58), indicate that Jesus is God (see also John 8:24, 28). They arrive at their contention by connecting the phrase “I am” with the words spoken by God in Exodus 3:14 and often translated: “I AM THAT I AM . . . . Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: I AM has sent me to you.” However, the literal and proper translation of this verse is: I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE. . . . Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: I WILL BE has sent me to you.”
    Since the author of the Gospel of John utilized the Greek Septuagint translation of the Bible in his writings, it cannot be assumed that John’s Jesus is referring to the words in Exodus 3:14. Although Jesus actually spoke in Hebrew or Aramaic, not Greek, John recorded Jesus’ alleged words in Greek. Ego eimi (“I am”), used by John’s Jesus, is not the same as ho on (“The Being, The One Who Is”), which is used in the Septuagint’s rendering of Exodus 3:14: “And God spoke to Moses, saying, I am THE BEING; and He said, Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: THE BEING has sent me to you.” Even though ho on appears in the Gospel of John, it is never used as a title or name or exclusively as a reference to Jesus. In the Book of Revelation, also credited to John by Christian commentators, ho on appears five times (Revelation 1:4, 8; 4:8; 11:17; 16:5). Significantly, in each instance, it is used as a title or designation applied to God, not Jesus. Thus: “John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace, from Him who is [ho on] and who was and who is to come; and from the seven spirits who are before His throne” (Revelation 1:4). That this verse refers to God and not Jesus is seen from the following verse, which continues the greeting by now including Jesus as one of those sending greetings. Hence, John says, in verses 4 and 5, that greetings are sent by God, the seven spirits, and Jesus.
    In verse 8, John writes: “‘I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is [ho on] and who was and who is to come, the Almighty'” (Revelation 1:8). This verse also speaks of God, not Jesus. In Revelation 4:8, ho on is applied to “the Lord God, the Almighty,” not Jesus, who, as the “Lamb” referred to in Revelation 5:6-7, comes to God, who is sitting on His throne. That they are two separate entities is seen from Revelation 5:13: “To the one sitting on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.” In addition, ho on is applied to the “Lord God, the Almighty,” not Jesus, in Revelation 11:17 and Revelation 16:5. That ho on in Revelation 16:5 refers to God and not Jesus can be seen from verse 7, which, referring to the subject of verses 5 and 6, states: “And I heard the altar saying: ‘Yes, Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.'” These are further indications that ho on and ego eimi are not used as synonymous terms by John. In John 8:56-58, John is expounding his belief that Jesus had a prehuman existence as an angelic being in heaven. John’s Jesus is proclaiming here that this prehuman existence began before Abraham was born: “Before Abraham came into being, I am.” The fact of the matter is that the text does not at all indicate how long Jesus supposedly lived before Abraham. In no honest way can John’s statement be taken to identify Jesus as God.

    JUST BECAUSE JESUS IS CALLED LORD, DOESN’T MEAN HE IS GOD/DIVINE. FOR MORE ON THE GREEK WORD FOR LORD AND IT’S USEAGE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, SEE THIS **************

    “God raised up his servant” (Acts 3:26), where the title servant refers to Jesus.
    Acts 3:26 – To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning every one of you away from his iniquities.
    Jesus Christ asked some followers: “Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and do not what I tell you?” (Luke 6:46)

    Jesus said: the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.” [The Bible, John 14:24]
    Jesus Christ is not equal with God [John 14:28 / Matt 24:36]
    “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? (From the NIV Bible, Numbers 23:19)”

    Matthew 15:22-28 –
    Then came she and worshipped him, saying, ‘Lord, help me.’ But he answered and said, ‘It is not meet to take the children’s bread and to cast it to dogs.’
    Not only Peter, but the entire group of believers viewed Jesus as God’s servant. When they raised their voices together in prayer to God, in the course of their speaking to God they called Jesus “your holy servant Jesus whom you anointed” (Acts 4:27). They repeated this title also in verse 30. Consistently, Jesus was being called servant of God by the original followers of Jesus.
    “Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.” (Acts 2:22).
    “At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, ‘Who touched my clothes?’” (Mark 5:30).

    “He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them.” (Mark 6:5). Mark also tells us that when Jesus tried to heal a certain blind man, the man was not healed after the first attempt, and Jesus had to try a second time (see Mark 8:22-26).
    “‘Of all the commandments, which is the most important?’ ‘The most important one,’ answered Jesus, ‘is this: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’” (Mark 12:28-30).
    “‘Well said, teacher,’ the man replied. ‘You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him.’” (Mark 12:32).

    “I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions…” (1 Timothy 5:21).
    “When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, ‘You are not far from the kingdom of God.’” (Mark 12:34).

    “In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession…” (1 Timothy 6:13).
    “the appearing of Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time.” (1 Timothy 6:14-15).

    which clearly shows that Jesus is not God: “God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever.” (1 Timothy 6:15-16).
    “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.” (Acts 17:24). Then he identified Jesus as “the man he (i.e. God) has appointed.” (Acts 17:31).
    Jesus said: I admit that I worship the God of our fathers…” (Acts 24:14).

    Acts 3:13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. You handed him over to be killed, and you disowned him before Pilate, though he had decided to let him go.

    Malachi ch. 3, v. 6. Jesus never was God, and never will be
    Matthew 26:39 Jesus begged his GOD to have mercy on him and to pass the cup to death (kill Jesus in another words) before Jesus goes through the pain of crucifixion

    Jesus himself has a God in John 20: 15-18.

    Go to Revelations 3:12 where the supposed divine Jesus is in his glory and also says he has a God:
    “None of those who call me ‘Lord’ will enter the kingdom of God, but only the one who does the will of my Father(God) in heaven.” (Matt. 7:21)
    John 17:24 “Jesus said God, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
    Jesus said:My Lord, Who has given them to me, is greater than all. (John 10:29)

    John 5:36-38 Jesus said that GOD had assigned him (Jesus) work and GOD is a witness on Jesus?
    Matthew 4:10: “Jesus said to him,’Away from me, Satan! For it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”‘”
    John 1:18 he said “No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the God’S side, has made HIM known.”
    Hebrew 5:7 he prayed and cried for GOD to hear him and give him mercy by saving him from death?
    John 5:32 Jesus told his followers that they have never seen GOD at anytime nor ever heard his voice?
    John 20:17: “Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the God. Go instead to my brothers and tell them,’I am ascending to my God and your God, to my God and your God.'”

    * Mark 13:32:”No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the servant, but only the God.”
    John 5:37 he said “And the God who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard HIS voice nor seen HIS form,” Jesus and the GOD are different. People heard Jesus, but never heard GOD.

    “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. (From the NIV Bible, Mark 12:29)”

    “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? (From the NIV Bible, Numbers 23:19)”
    John 14:28: “You heard me say,’I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to theGod, for the God is greater than I.”

    John 17:3
    Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
    If Jesus was GOD, then why did he ask for GOD’s Forgiveness in Luke 23:34? Please visit How can Jesus be GOD Almighty when he asked for GOD’s Forgiveness?

    john 5:30
    Jesus said: I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father(God) which hath sent me.

    John 5:19: “Jesus gave them this answer: “I tell you the truth, Jesus can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.”
    Because Jesus said, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Matt. 27:46). Can he who uttered this be the Supreme God?
    Re 15:4 Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested.”

    JESUS (PBUH) “IS A WORD FROM ALLAH(God)” NOT “THE WORD OF ALLAH(God)”

    The Qur’an mentions in Surah Ali ‘Imran Chapter 3 verse 45

    “Behold! The angels said: O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ J…esus. The son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those Nearest to Allah.
    [Al-Qur’an 3:45]

    Jesus (pbuh) is referred in the Qur’an as a word from Allah and not as ‘the word of Allah’.

    “A word” of Allah(God) means a message of Allah. If a person is referred to as “a word” from Allah, it means that he is a Messenger or a Prophet of Allah.

    Jesus, the son of Mary, said: “O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah(God) (sent) to you, confirming the Taurát (Law) (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad.” But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, “This is evident sorcery!”

    Verily, when He(ALLAH)(GOD) intends a thing, His Command is, “Be”, and it is!
    So glory to Him in Whose Hands is the dominion of all things: and to Him will ye be all brought back.

    .Jesus (pbuh) of Nazareth – a Man Approved of God

    The following statement from the Bible supports the Islamic belief that Jesus (pbuh) was a prophet of God.

    “Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know.”
    [The Bible, Acts 2:22]

    BETWEEN ADAM AND JESUS:
    Allah(God) said,
    (Verily, the likeness of `Jesus before Allah) regarding Allah’s ability, since He created him without a father,
    (is the likeness of Adam), for Allah created Adam without a father or a mother. Rather,
    (He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: “Be!” and he was.)
    Therefore, He Who created Adam without a father or a mother is able to create `Jesus, as well, without a father. If the claim is made that `Jesus is Allah’s son because he was created without a father, then the same claim befits Adam even more. However, since such a claim regarding Adam is obviously false, then making the same claim about `Jesus is even more false.
    Furthermore, by mentioning these facts, Allah emphasizes His ability, by creating Adam without a male or female, Hawa’ from a male without a female, and `Jesus from a mother without a father, compared to His creating the rest of creation from male and female. (And We made him a sign for mankind) ﴿19: 21﴾.
    Allah(God) said in this Ayah(Verse),
    ((This is) the truth from your Lord, so be not of those who doubt.) meaning, this is the only true story about `Jesus, and what is beyond truth save falsehood Allah next commands His Messenger to call those who defy the truth, regarding `Jesus, to the (the curse).

  4. Abdullah Says:

    Jesus is servant of God
    “God raised up his servant” (Acts 3:26), where the title servant refers to Jesus.
    Acts 3:26 – To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning every one of you away from his iniquities.
    Clear verse that Jesus is servant of God:
    Isaiah 49:1-13 – Listen to me, you islands; hear this, you distant nations; Before I was born the LORD called me; from my birth he has made mention of my name. He made my mouth like sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver. He said to me, “You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will display my splendor.” But I said, “I have labored to no purpose; I have spent my strength in vain and for nothing. Yet what is due me is in the LORD’s hand, and my reword is with my God.” And now the LORD says – he who formed me in the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and gather Israel to himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength – he says: “It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth.” This is what the LORD says – the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel – to him who was despised and abhorred by the nation, to the servant of rulers; “Kings will see you and rise up, princes will see and bow down, because of the LORD, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.” This is what the LORD says: “In the time of my favor I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’ They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill. They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat upon them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water. I will turn all my mountains into roads, and my highways will be raised up. See, they will come from afar – some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan. Shout for joy, O heavens, rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains! For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
    Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. 18 Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him. John 7:17-18
    Jesus said:
    God, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” Luke 22:42

    Jesus Christ, to do the work of God as Mediator, was sent on a long journey, as far as it is from heaven to earth, and was thereby exposed to much difficulty, and great hardships, from men and devils. He was persecuted from place to place, his life being often in jeopardy; he had no place where to lay his head; and was at last most basely betrayed and put to death,
    Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” Matthew 8:20
    Jesus Christ, as God’s Servant, sought not his own glory. “I honour my God John 8:49 answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my God and ye do dishonour me.
    “If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true,” John 7:17-18 [17] If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. [18] He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
    God, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” Luke 22:42

    John 12:49
    For I did not speak on my own, but the God who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken.

    If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my God’s commands and remain in his love. John 15:10
    Matthew 15:22-28 –

    Some people mistakenly thought that the disciples called Jesus Son of God. An inconsistency of translation actually helped to give this wrong impression. In the King James Bible, the translators call Jesus “Son of God” in Acts 3:13, 26, and “child of God” in Acts 4:27. They simply translated the Greek word paida as “son” or “child”. But the word paida also means “servant”, and the present context demands this translation since the author of Acts is trying in this passage to establish that Jesus is indeed the servant of God.
    The translators knew that the Greek word paida means servant. When the same word was used for David in chapter 4, verse 25, they translated it “servant”. Why not call Jesus also by the same title? Or, if they feel that “son” is the correct translation, why not also call David “Son of God”? Jesus and David are both called by the same title in Greek. Why not call them by a same title in English also?
    Other translators recognised this inconsistency and corrected it in the modern translations of the Bible. Therefore the New International Version of the Bible and many others call Jesus Servant of God in the verses already quoted above. Nevertheless, the fact that Jesus was God’s servant was so well known that even the King James Bible called him by this title in Matthew 12:18. Referring back to Isaiah 42:1, Matthew identified Jesus as the servant of the one true God Yahweh.

  5. AbduRahman Says:

    Jesus is a Servant of God

    The book of the Acts of the Apostles in the Bible is an important piece of evidence on the present subject. This book details the activity of the disciples over a period of thirty years after Jesus was raised up. It is important to see what the disciples were saying about Jesus, and what titles they used in referring to him.
    It will be quickly obvious that they often referred to him as a servant of God, but never Son of God. Peter, for example, said:
    “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus” (Acts 3:13).
    Peter further said:
    “God raised up his servant” (Acts 3:26), where the title servant refers to Jesus.
    Not only Peter, but the entire group of believers viewed Jesus as God’s servant. When they raised their voices together in prayer to God, in the course of their speaking to God they called Jesus “your holy servant Jesus whom you anointed” (Acts 4:27).

    In the next part, we will see how the eagerness in some people to call Jesus ‘Son of God’ led them to invent explanations that indirectly insult God.

    Humane features of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) in the Bible

    Birth, lineage and ancestors of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh)

    A record of the genealogy of Jesus the son of David, the son of Abraham … (Matthew 1:1-2)

    Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him. (Mark 3:31)

    … The crowds answered: “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.” (Matthew 21:11)

    … Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” (Mark 6:3)

    And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. (Luke, 2:52)

    Humane features of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh)

    He eats

    When he [Jesus] was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and began to give it to them. (Luke 24:30)

    And while they still did not believe it, because of [their] joy and amazement, he asked them: “Do you have anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate it in their presence. (Luke 24:41-43)

    While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house … (Mark 2:15)

    Jesus, tired from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus asked her: “Will you give me a drink?”(John 4:6-7)

    He gets tired and he rests

    Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. (Mark 4:38)

    Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he [Jesus] said to them: “Come with me to a quiet place and get some rest.”(Mark 6:31)

    Jesus, tired from the journey, sat down by the well. (John 4:6)

    Like any human being, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is dependent on mercy of Allah(the only one God)

    All things have been given to me by my Lord. (Matthew 11:27)

    I do exactly what God has commanded me [to do]. (Matthew 14:31)

    The words I say to you are not just my own. (John 14:10)

    I tell you the truth, the apostle can do nothing by himself. (John 5:19)
