Jesus and God Share Many Titles [2 pages]
by Jay Dicken rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)
Jesus shares titles with God. Among these are “King of kings, and Lord of lords,” and “Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last.” The Bible calls Jesus our Savior and says that besides God there is no Savior. (Acts 5:31; Isaiah 43:11) Also, there are passages of Scripture which are applied to God in the Hebrew Scriptures, yet applied to Jesus in the New Testament.
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.

Let Us Make Man: A Study of the "Us Texts"

Who was God talking to in Genesis 1.26; 3.21; 11.7; Isaiah 6.8? Should these four texts be used to support the notion that within God are multiple persons? Sean Finnegan demonstrates conclusively that this is simply not the case. Through careful examination of relevant passages and by quoting leading trinitarian study Bibles one simple conclusion emerges: God says "us" in the same sense that "us" is used in any other context--he refers to himself and others (members of his heavenly court).
