Do Titus 2.13 and 2 Peter 1.1 Call Jesus God? [< 1 page]

In Titus 3:4 he is called the “Goodness and Loving-kindness of God, our Savior.” In 2 Peter 1:1 he is called the “Righteousness of our God, and Savior.” So in these passages Jesus is not being called God.
These books, written by people from diverse backgrounds, express the simple truth that God is one. Some of them are more scholary while others are more autobiographical. In addition, a few of them are available to read online. If you would like more in depth treatment of christian monotheism, these books are the next step to take.

Does Peter call Jesus "God" in 2 Peter 1:1?

In summary, the Granville Sharp Rule used to argue 2 Peter 1:1 is a statement of the deity of Jesus is invalid. This grammatical rule was “discovered” rather late by a well-intentioned Christian who was specifically looking for grammatical patterns that would “prove” the deity of Christ. Instead 2 Peter 1:1 has two persons in view, “our God” and the “savior, Jesus Christ.”
