Jesus and God Share Many Titles [2 pages]
by Jay Dicken rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)
Jesus shares titles with God. Among these are “King of kings, and Lord of lords,” and “Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last.” The Bible calls Jesus our Savior and says that besides God there is no Savior. (Acts 5:31; Isaiah 43:11) Also, there are passages of Scripture which are applied to God in the Hebrew Scriptures, yet applied to Jesus in the New Testament.
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.

This teaching is part 2 of where Echad left - uncovering the usage of the NT Greek word Eis, translated in English, one. The trend that is found in the OT Hebrew regarding Echad, which means numerically one, is carried into the NT - "eis" and its counterparts words like "en", "monos" and the like, clearly bring to light the wonderful truth that God is a single person, not triune as the popular tradition of the Trinity asserts. This teaching attempts to present the biblical data.
