The Son Was Given Authority [2 pages]
by Shane Derry rated at 2.3 (8 votes so far)
Why was Jesus called Immanuel? Does that mean he is God with us or was he being called this name to remind the message that God was still with his people? Looking at other Hebrew names Shane mounts a convincing case for the second option.
The Most high and His Son [3 pages]
by Shane Derry rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)
This article shows the differences scripturally between God and the Son of God. It shows and explains how they are completely separate people. This shows harmony with the verses of the Old and New Testaments without involving post Apostolic man-made creeds built on confusion and contradictions.
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.
Commentary on John 1.15
by John Schoenheit, Mark Graeser, John Lynn [1 page]
rated at 1.4 (out of 6 votes)
This verse is occasionally used to support the Trinity because it is assumed that for Jesus to come “before” John he would have had to exist before John. While it is true that the Greek word “before” (protos) can mean “before in time,” it can just as easily be “first,” “chief,” “leader,” etc.
