Who is Jesus? (Booklet) [25 pages]
by Anthony Buzzard rated at 4.7 (13 votes so far)
It is a striking fact that Jesus never referred to himself as "God." Equally remarkable is the New Testament's use of the word "God"--in Greek ho theos--to refer to the Father alone, some 1325 times. In sharp contrast, Jesus is called "god" in a handful of texts only--perhaps no more than two. Why this impressive difference in New Testament usage, when so many seem to think that Jesus is no less "God" than his Father?
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.

Did Jesus Claim to Be God?

In John 5.18 and John 10.38, the Jews thought Jesus was claiming equality with God, but they were wrong. Jesus was calling God “his own Father;” he was not claiming to be God.
