Shaliah: An Introduction to the Law of Agency [15 pages]
by Raymond James Essoe rated at 2.9 (11 votes so far)
A common feature of the Hebrew Scriptures is the concept (some even call it the "law") of Jewish agency. All Old Testament scholars and commentators recognize that in Jewish custom whenever a superior commissioned an agent to act on his behalf, the agent was regarded as the person himself. Without this understanding we may unintentionally misread texts that refer to Jesus as 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. Note: if you know of other books, not listed here, please leave us feedback.

Jesus' statement, "I am He who testifies about Myself, and the Father who sent Me testifies about Me", clearly indicates that Jesus and his Father are two distinct witnesses. Join Mike Hicks as he draws out the implications of this for oneness theology.
