Is Jesus the Father? [5 pages]
by Mike Hicks rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)
Mike Hicks carefully analyzes the central claim of oneness theology that Jesus is the Father. He cites the work of Gordon Magee and David Bernard and then goes on to show that the oneness assertion, "Jesus is the Father," steps far outside of Biblical language and logic. In attempting to disprove the doctrine of the Trinity, which is also false, Jesus-only advocates prove too much.

This teaching begins from where Elohim left off, by studying the NT usage of the Greek word Theos, translated in English, God. Again, what is seen here is a continuing trend that was realized in the OT usage of Elohim - Theos is also flexibly used for the One true God, for angels, men, etc...The exegetical study of the word properly reveals who the God of Israel is. (This sermon was originally preached at the Red Words Church on 6-June-2010 in Melbourne, Australia.)
