Debate: Is Yeshua the One God of Israel [358:35]
by Matthew Janzen vs. Michael Bugg rated at 1.6 (7 votes so far)
On May 24th and 25th of 2008, Michael Bugg and Matthew Janzen debated the question Is Yeshua the One God of Israel?. The debate occurred over two nights. The first night was at Michael Bugg's church (he is a messianic Jew who holds to a modified version of the Trinity). The second night of the debate was held at Matthew Janzen's church (he is the biblical unitarian).
An interesting feature of the debate was that it occurred in twenty minute speeches all throughout. Rather than having an opening statement followed by a couple of rebuttals, every speech was twenty minutes (at least until the question and answer time).

Shaliah: An Introduction to the Law of Agency
by Raymond James Essoe [15 pages]
rated at 2.9 (out of 11 votes)
A common feature of the Hebrew Scriptures is the concept (some even call it the "law") of Jewish agency. All Old Testament scholars and commentators recognize that in Jewish custom whenever a superior commissioned an agent to act on his behalf, the agent was regarded as the person himself. Without this understanding we may unintentionally misread texts that refer to Jesus as God.
