Did Jesus Claim to be the "I Am" in John 8.58? [36:25]
by Victor Gluckin rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)
John 8 contains insight into the identity of Jesus. Did he really use the title 'I AM' to refer his hearers back to God's encounter with Moses at the burning bush (Exodus 3.14) or is this an instance where translation bias has twisted the Scripture? Why is it that the same Greek phrase is translated just nine verses later as "I am the one" when it is found on the lips of the blind man?
Jesus: Son of Man, Son of God [41:15]
by Victor Gluckin rated at 1.3 (6 votes so far)
The traditional doctrine of the hypostatic union (dual natures) maintains that the title 'Son of Man' refers to the human nature of Jesus while the title 'Son of God' refers to the divine nature of Jesus. Yet, is this biblical? What does the Bible teach about these two titles? Is 'Son of God' equivalent to 'God the Son?' Victor Gluckin mounts a convincing case that 'Son of God' should be understood messianically and 'Son of Man' should be interpreted in light of Daniel 7.13-14.
Proud of our God [67:46]
by Victor Gluckin rated at 3.2 (13 votes so far)
An honest appeal for zealousness in understanding and proclaiming our one God to the nations. Let us not cower nor be lifted up with pride, but with compassion preach with boldness that God is a singular individual--the Father of Jesus Christ.
