Is Jesus Called Yahweh in Romans 10.13? [< 1 page]

Joel 2:32 was also quoted by Peter at Acts 2:21 while preaching to Jews who had not accepted Jesus as the Christ (Messiah). Unlike Peter, Paul was not addressing unbelievers, but Roman Christians. They already understood that ‘calling upon the name of the Lord’ God included accepting Jesus as Lord and Christ. Jesus said that “no one comes to the Father, but by me.” Therefore, one has to call upon Jesus (the name means Yahweh Saves) to call upon Yahweh God. So while there appears to be a blurring of the scriptural application in Romans 10:13, there is no warrant for trinitarian conclusions. -- John 14:6

Who was the historical Jesus? Was he God in the flesh or the long awaited human Messiah of the Jews? Watch this documentary to find out what the controversy is all about. If the earliest followers of Jesus believed him to be the Jewish Messiah (the human born to save the world) how is it the case that twenty centuries later one is labeled a heretic if he or she does not affirm the doctrine of the Trinity? This documentary seeks to get investigate what happened to the original understanding of Jesus. History combines with interviews from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim scholars along with a number of "man on the street" segments to weave together a remarkable tapestry with staggering implications. Produced by Restoration Fellowship in conjunction M. G. Dockery Films.
