John 1:1 and the Trinity [48:11]
by Anthony Buzzard rated at 4.8 (18 votes so far)
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 understand John 1.1? Was John, a first century Jew, articulating the completely non-Jewish idea that God became a human being or have we read that into John 1.1? Join Anthony Buzzard as he explains the meaning of John 1.1-14 in its original Hebrew, thought context.
Who is Jesus? (Booklet) [25 pages]
by Anthony Buzzard rated at 4.7 (13 votes so far)
It is a striking fact that Jesus never referred to himself as "God." Equally remarkable is the New Testament's use of the word "God"--in Greek ho theos--to refer to the Father alone, some 1325 times. In sharp contrast, Jesus is called "god" in a handful of texts only--perhaps no more than two. Why this impressive difference in New Testament usage, when so many seem to think that Jesus is no less "God" than his Father?
The Human Jesus (Documentary) [119:26]
by M. G. Dockery rated at 4.6 (12 votes so far)
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.

Losing Faith in the Trinity [79:57]
by Christopher Amelung rated at 4.5 (9 votes so far)
Christopher Amelung was raised as an informed evangelical thinker within the Reformed tradition. When he went off to college he met someone who challenged him on his belief in the Trinity. Though, he was confident at the time in his "orthodox" position, he decided to do the research necessary to prove to this person that the Trinity was true from the Bible. This began Christopher on a quest, through which, he lost friendships, was told he would burn in hell, and even was urged by an elder to "just believe in the Trinity and be confused with the rest of us." Listen to his riveting autobiographical account of how God is able to reach someone who is open to hearing his truth no matter what the cost.
