ANSWERING BIBLICAL "DISCREPANCIES"


The Nature of Christ


 

Christ is God

Christ is God Christ is man
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.  John 1:1,14

 

But unto the Son he saith, "Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever."

 Hebrews 1:8

But now you seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God.  John 8:40

Because he hath appointed a day in which he will judge the world in righteousness, by that man whom he hath ordained.  Acts 17:81

There is on God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.  1 Timothy 2:5

Christ is simply presented here in two aspects - divine and human.  He is, was, and shall be God.  Yet he took on the form of man in Jesus.

Christ is one with the Father

One with Father Distinct from Father

I and my Father are one.         John 10:30
 

I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world:  again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  John 16:38

The "oneness" of the first text is unity of essence, attributes, and will, but not unity of person.  There is a defining difference between one in purpose and one in person.  The Trinitarian theology holds that there is one God in three persons.  In this light, these verses can easily be reconciled.

Jesus is Co-Equal with the Father

Equal to the Father Inferior to the Father
  Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.  Philippians 2:5,6

  After Christ.  For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.  Colossians 2:8,9

  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

The words "greater than I" do not refer to Christ being inferior in respect to His essence or divinity.  Rather, they refer to his present condition.  He was, at the time, in a human body, subjected to ridicule and scorn.  He referred to His impending ascension into the celestial glory and exaltation that is due Him in His divine nature.
