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.

What is the Word in John 1.1?
by Vince Finnegan [46:27]
rated at 2 (out of 8 votes)
The first verse of the Gospel of John is almost always used as a starting point to prove the Trinity. However, is there another way to read John 1.1: a way that makes sense of the overall context of Jewish Monotheism? Is "the word" the pre-incarnate Son of God or is there a more Hebrew way to approach the prologue of John?
