    God is Jesus vs. Jesus is God

    I received an email from a Bible search website this morning that was entitled “God is Jesus.”

    I was surprised by my reaction. I have no doubt that Jesus is God. That is clear from the scriptures.

    I have a different feeling about the sentence “God is Jesus.”

    Perhaps my discomfort with “God is Jesus” is that Jesus described the Father is greater than He.

    I would like the opinion of others on the topic.

    Anyone else have discomfort with the statement “God is Jesus.”

    I don't. There is only one Most High, everyone else is less high.

    I think it is good because there is only one God and He is the Father. since Jesus is God, then he must also be that one God and Father.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!
    Do not just read the word do it.

    I do not say God is Jesus or Jesus is God. And they are different statements.
    John 1:40-41 NASB, John 1:49 NASB - 40 One of the two who heard John speak and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 41 He found first his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which translated means Christ). 49 - Nathanael answered Him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel."

    Thanks for posting.

    Jamie, are you saying that Jesus is the only one Most High?

    Thanks for posting.

    How can Jesus be the Father if He:
    1) Prays to the Father,
    2) Says the Father is greater than He is,
    3) Says the Father knows things He does not, and
    4) Said He had to return to the Father?

    Those statements and actions seem to indicate that He is not the Father.
