I met a man recently & during our discussion he said, God the father came down to earth as Jesus, the example he gave was John 14:9, “Jesus saith unto him, “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?”

I asked him who Jesus was talking to while on the cross in Matt 27:46. “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

He could not answer me.

Of course there are so many examples to confirm that Jesus Christ is not the Father but rather the only begotten son of the father.

John 8:16,18 – the father who sent him bears witness to him.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 KJV.

Other examples are: Jn 10: 36. Jn 14:10.

Jn 16: 32. 17:5, 14, 24.

In Matt 26:39,42. when he was in agony in the garden of Gethsemane, he prayed to the Father saying, “……O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.”

42:He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done”.

On his resurrection from the dead he spoke to Mary saying,

“Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God”.

John 20:17 KJV.

If he was the father, why was he crying and praying to himself?

He made it clear that he is not the father but he and the father are one.

“Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works”.

John 14:10 KJV.

The gospel of John is rich with scriptures in which Jesus Christ himself affirmed his relationship with the Father, making it clear that he is not the father but that he and the father are one, especially chapters 10 & 14.

There are so many more examples in the Bible.

Please feel free to share your thoughts.

God bless.
