    #111) Top Five NT Verses that Show Jesus is NOT God

    #111) Top Five NT Verses that Show Jesus is NOT God

    In this episode we continue our countdown of the top 10 New Testament verses that show that Jesus is NOT God. Verses in this episode include:

    (5.5)    1Corinthians 15:21

    For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.


      Acts 17:31

    He (God) has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all men by raising him from the dead." (Act 17:31 RSV)


    4.   Acts 2:22, 36

    "Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know…

    Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified."


    3.   1 Timothy 2:4-5

    God… “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.  5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”


    2.   1 Corinthians 8:6

    Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all and through whom we exist.


    1.   John 17:3

    “Father….this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”


    Compare John’s purpose statement: John 20:30-31: “Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book;  but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.”


    “Consolation” Verses:
    Many verses which declare that God, someone other than Jesus, raised the Lord Jesus from the Dead, e.g.,

    1 Cor. 6:14, Romans 10:9

    “And God raised the Lord and will also raise us by his power.”

    Romans 10:9

    “…believe in your heart that God raised him (the Lord Jesus) from the dead”


    Acts 5:30

    The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree.


    Matthew 24:36

    “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.”


    John 14:28 (10:29)

    “The Father is greater than I”

    110) Top 10 New Testament Scriptures that Prove Jesus is NOT God (#10-6)

    110) Top 10 New Testament Scriptures that Prove Jesus is NOT God (#10-6)

    In this two part episode we look at 10 verses from the New Testament which give direct evidence that Jesus is NOT God.

    Many Christians have heard of a few verses that supposedly declare that Jesus IS God, but few Christians have heard about verses that show that Jesus is NOT God.

    In this episode we examine five (OK, plus) verses:

    10.  2 Cor. 1:3, Eph.
    1:3, 1 Pet. 1:3, Rom. 15:6 The Lord Jesus Christ has a God

    “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    the Father of mercies and God of all comfort”

    Ephesians 1:17

    I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,
    may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, (Eph
    1:17 NRS)

    Revelation 3:12

    The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God.
    Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God,
    and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down
    from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.


    9.    John 20:17

    “I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God."


    8.     Mark 12:29-33 whereJesus quotes Deuteronomy 6:4

    "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God the LORD is one. And you shall
    love the LORD your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength…”

    (Yahweh our God, Yahweh is one).  “He
    is one, there is no other but he, and to love him…”


    7.    John 8:40

    “…but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the
    truth that I heard from God.”


    6.    Romans 5:15

    But the gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the gift in the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.

    109) Reading the New Testament without Trinitarian Glasses

    109) Reading the New Testament without Trinitarian Glasses

    This episode has two parts:

    Part 1, I ask a question about the objectives of the Hamas attack.

    October 7, 2023—a date which will live in infamy— Israel was
    suddenly and deliberately attacked by the militant, terrorist forces of Hamas, the Islamic organization in authority in the Gaza strip.


    Part 2 of the Podcast, Reading the New Testament without Trinitarian Glasses


    I look at the first eight verses of the Book of Revelation as an example of reading a New Testament text without the presuppositions and prejudices of Trinitarian belief.

    We discover that in the biblical text Jesus is not the LORD God Almighty, who was and is and to come.  Rather, Jesus is the faithful witness who died is the first-born from the dead.  Jesus’ God is the Father, the LORD God Almighty who is and was and is to come.

    108) "Jesus is God" Denies that Jesus is the Christ

    108) "Jesus is God" Denies that Jesus is the Christ

    Who is Denying Christ – Me or a Person who Believes that “Jesus
    is God”?


    When I first came to understand that the man, the human person Jesus of Nazareth, is God’s Christ (the Messiah המשיח), the human Son of God, quite a few of my former Trinitarian and deity-of-Christ-believing friends accused me of “denying Christ”.


    Here I was confessing and proclaiming that Jesus is the Christ, yet many people were saying I was denying Christ!


    For a complete text of this episode, click here:



    Let’s ask Trinitarian, deity of Christ believers this question. I would really like to hear Trinitarians, or oneness believers answer. I’m interested in honest, civil discussion. The best place to answer is probably the Bill Schlegel YouTube channel.


    Here’s the question – I’ll ask it in various ways for clarification:

    Do have a problem with God exalting a human person, Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, to His (God’s) right hand?

    Do you deny that the human person, the human being, Jesus of Nazareth came into being, was born, lived, was put to death, was raised from the dead by God and exalted to God’s right hand? Are you ashamed of the human person, Jesus of Nazareth?

    Do you think who this human person is and what this human person did is not sufficient to be the one mediator between God and man?

    Again, is there an exalted, glorified human person at the right hand of God?

    107) #Walk Away, Why I Am Not a Trinitarian

    A faith journey. How I was introduced to Christianity, became a teacher in a Christian college in the Land of Israel, and came to understand that the God of the Bible is not three-persons-in-one-being.

    I believe in God (the Father) and in Jesus the Son of God (the Messiah), and in the spirit of God - but I'm not a Trinitarian.

    106) "Jesus is Lord" means Jesus is NOT God

    106) "Jesus is Lord" means Jesus is NOT God

    In Romans 10:9 the Apostle Paul states that part of salvation depends on a person confessing with their mouth that “Jesus is Lord”, or the “Lord Jesus”. 

    This episode aims to show that, contrary to traditional Christianity’s belief, to claim that “Jesus is Lord” (or the “Lord Jesus”) is NOT a claim that “Jesus is God”. 

    Rather, when the Apostle Paul, like other writers of the New Testament,
    uses the title “Lord” for Jesus, he differentiates Jesus from

     Another way to state this truth: in his epistles Paul uses the title God for God (the Father alone), and the title Lord for the human person, Jesus the Lord Messiah.

    #Romans10:9, #Jesusinshema, #billschlegel, #onegodreport

    Time stamps:

    00:01 Introduction: LORD or Lord? There are many people in the Bible who are Lord, but are not God.


    03:12 The titles “God, Father, God the Father, God our Father” : All of God or just one member
    of God?


    05:13 Does
    the Apostle Paul use the title “Lord” for Jesus to equate Jesus with God, or distinguishing Jesus from God. Paul never uses the title “Lord” for God.


    An example from Peter, Acts 2_36, “God made Jesus Lord and Christ”


    09:00 Romans 10_9 “Jesus is Lord”. Romans 15_6 “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus”


    12:06 First Corinthians 8_6, “As for us there is one God, the Father…and one Lord, Jesus Christ”


    More examples of “Lord” meaning that Jesus is the Lord Messiah, not the LORD God, 2 Cor. 1_3 and Ephesians 1_17


    23:00 Other biblical authors who distinguish between God and the Lord Messiah Jesus: James
    1_1, 2 Pet. 1_2, and Jude 1_25. The Gospel of John never refers to God as Lord,
    except in 3 places where the author directly quotes an Hebrew Scripture passage
    that contains the name YHVH.


    26:42 Summary and Challenge.  Jesus is the Lord Messiah, not the LORD God.

a hungry fella ,

Refreshingly thorough analysis

Thanks to brother Bill Schlegel’s diligence, many facets of each gem of doctrine are carefully examined. Whether or not I agree with each application or conclusion, I find these podcasts to be meaty spiritual exercise. Yum. Meat. And in this case, mostly kosher meat. So come and dine with brother Bill, per Hebrews 5:14.

rush19tower ,

I guess this means I’m a Heretic?!

I have listened to 87 episodes in 18 days. Bill is quite good at explaining an Biblical Unitarian position with conviction. Bill’s passion for the unity of God the Father is straightforward and spine-strengthening. Everyday for the last 3 months I have been shocked and rocked by the malfeasance of Bible translators. They know what they are doing. If they didn’t know they wouldn’t give so many footnotes with all the exceptions at the bottom of every page of my ESV. If I lived 500 years ago, the “church” would put me to death for what I believe to be the simple and blatant truth of scripture.

I anxiously await every single episode.
