I find this an incomprehensible statement....
Is Jesus God?
Yes, He is all that the Father is.
The Father is He who created all things. If Jesus is ALL that the Father is, then why is there any need for the Father?
1 Corinthians 8:6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.
Carefully note the prepositions. They are always difficult and subtle things, but do have the benefit of clarifying matters nicely
from is the word EK, meaning usually OUT OF.
If ALL THINGS are OUT OF the Father, then that includes Jesus.
Therefore any question of equality, and more significantly, of
ETERNITY, does not arise.
We know this is true, because Jesus said so:
Jn 8.42 for I proceeded forth and came from [EK]<1537> God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
So if He is ALL that the Father is, He is the SOURCE of everything, including both Himself and the Father. Which is logical confusion and worse.Yes, He is all that the Father is.
Very true. And remember, it is the gardener who plants the vine.Jesus is the true vine and the Father is the gardener.
