We are with the apostles...they proclaimed Him as Lord and God
The apostles did not call him anything Lord and son. They didn't call him god.
Joh 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
Joh 20:28 και απεκριθη ο θωμας και ειπεν αυτω ο κυριος μου και ο θεος μου [the Lord of me and the God of me]
13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ
How is that fulness any different than this one?I don't understand how the claim can be made that Jesus could not be fully human and fully God, when the original purpose of man was to be God's image. Jesus is the perfect image of God as a man, but He also transcends that exceedingly. He is the fulness of the Godhead in bodily form.
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Wouldn't it be better to ask why people think God did not mean what He said in His scriptures in all those places where He shows that Jesus and God are not the same being instead of wondering why God allowed people to find a tiny number of verses that can be used to say that Jesus is God?If Jesus is not God, then God the Father allowed the scriptures to be written in such a way as to portray Him as God, and to enable people to fight over His divinity for millenia.
He is the fulness of the Godhead in bodily form.
Not always. Of course, your statement depends on whether or not you believe Christianity was the religion held by those first early followers of Jesus, or that it was the religion that became part of the Roman Empire under Constantine.
not only are you ONLY quoting the verses that show Jesus as fully Human, you are ignoring the verses that Jesus (and God) show that Jesus is God.
God also speaks that He is Jesus,, or bodily human.
Zech 12 10, in which GOD is speaking.
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
I and my father are one....
