Debate: Is Yeshua the One God of Israel [358:35]
by Matthew Janzen vs. Michael Bugg rated at 1.6 (7 votes so far)
On May 24th and 25th of 2008, Michael Bugg and Matthew Janzen debated the question Is Yeshua the One God of Israel?. The debate occurred over two nights. The first night was at Michael Bugg's church (he is a messianic Jew who holds to a modified version of the Trinity). The second night of the debate was held at Matthew Janzen's church (he is the biblical unitarian).
An interesting feature of the debate was that it occurred in twenty minute speeches all throughout. Rather than having an opening statement followed by a couple of rebuttals, every speech was twenty minutes (at least until the question and answer time).

Commentary on 1 Corinthians 10.4

This verse is only a problem if it is misunderstood or mistranslated. Some Trinitarians use it to teach that Christ was actually with the Israelites, following them around. However, the Old Testament makes no mention of Christ being with the Israelites in the wilderness. And if he had been, he certainly would not have been "following" them.
