The OT Teaches that God Is One [9 pages]
by Chuck LaMattina rated at 4.4 (7 votes so far)
There is only one true God and one person who is God. All Christians agree that there is only one true God. But all Christians do not agree on whom precisely that one God is. Millions of Christians profess that God is a Trinity of persons. They have been told that God consists of three distinct persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who together make up one God. Yet, the Old Testament adamantly and clearly teaches that God is a single individual.
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: Son of Man, Son of God

The traditional doctrine of the hypostatic union (dual natures) maintains that the title 'Son of Man' refers to the human nature of Jesus while the title 'Son of God' refers to the divine nature of Jesus. Yet, is this biblical? What does the Bible teach about these two titles? Is 'Son of God' equivalent to 'God the Son?' Victor Gluckin mounts a convincing case that 'Son of God' should be understood messianically and 'Son of Man' should be interpreted in light of Daniel 7.13-14.
