Only One God [33:16]
by Paul Rankin rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)
Orthodoxy tells us that we have to believe a "trinity" to be Christians. But why isn't this triune teaching obvious anywhere in scripture? Who or what did Jesus and his fellow Jews worship? In today's message, you may be surprised to find the simple the truth when we let scripture speak for itself.
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. Note: if you know of other books, not listed here, please leave us feedback.
Did Jesus Claim to be the "I Am" in John 8.58?

John 8 contains insight into the identity of Jesus. Did he really use the title 'I AM' to refer his hearers back to God's encounter with Moses at the burning bush (Exodus 3.14) or is this an instance where translation bias has twisted the Scripture? Why is it that the same Greek phrase is translated just nine verses later as "I am the one" when it is found on the lips of the blind man?
