Commentary on 1 Corinthians 8.6 [2 pages]

Trinitarians say that this verse supports their position because of the final phrase in the verse, i.e., that all things came through Jesus Christ. But what the verse actually says is that all things came "from" God, "through" Jesus. This testimony stands in contradiction to Trinitarian doctrine because it places Jesus in a subordinate role to God. According to this verse, he is not "co-equal" with the Father.

Often in our Bible study it's important to fully study out the meaning and interpretation of a passage to better understand the writer's intention. And, of course, English Bibles are a translation, not the original text. When we examine the original languages, we might be surprised to learn how one little "word" could be translated so many ways.
