JESUS-I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE
Christians are noted for taking statements out of context to support their false beliefs that Jesus is God; son of God; part of a trinity with God; and that he died for inherited sin.
Though Jesus clearly declared he was a Muslim and taught Islam; that God sent him only for Jews and he foretold the coming of another Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and will “abide for ever.”
Jesus mostly spoke in metaphors and preached in parables.
Jesus saying in John 10:30: “I and my Father are one.” means that Jesus and God are one in purpose; as all prophets are “one” in purpose with God, as they do only as they are commanded by God: “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak”–(John 12:49; 14:10).
Here is Jesus’ saying in its context; Jesus said to the disbelieving Jews who said “He hath a devil and is mad”:
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which GAVE them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to PLUCK them out of my Father’s hand. I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE” -(John 10:20, 26-30).
Clearly, God GIVING them to Jesus and no man being able to PLUCK them out of God’s and Jesus’ hands show that God and Jesus are “one” only in PURPOSE.
Jesus also said: “I pray for them (Jews)…That they may all be one; as Thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also my be ONE IN US”–(John 17:9-21).
If Jesus is God because he said he and his Father are “one,” then the Jews he is praying for so that they also could be “one” “in us” would also be God(s).
Jesus says: “I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God”–(John 20:17).
If Jesus is God, the Jews, having the same Father as Jesus, must also be God(s).
Jesus said: “I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but He sent me”–(John 8:42. This statement by Jesus clearly and conclusively shows that Jesus is NOT God and could NOT be God!).
That Jesus “proceeded forth and came from God” is not restricted to Jesus; everyone “proceedeth forth and come from God;” shown later.
Jesus said “no man hath ascended up to heaven…even the Son of man WHICH IS IN HEAVEN”–John 3:13.
Since Jesus is on earth and the Son of man is yet in heaven, then clearly this Son of man will also “proceed forth and come from God”.
Jesus saying, he that seen me has seen the Father means that whoever saw his works (of miracles) has seen the miracles of God; for Jesus performed miracles through the power of God–(John 14:9; Luke 11:20; Acts 2:22).
This is made clear by Jesus in John 14:10 where Jesus says: “Believe 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.”
(Notably, God dwells in every man: “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLETH IN YOU?”–1 Cor. 3:16. Compare with Qur’an: “Then He (Allāh) made him (man) complete and breathed into him of His Spirit”–(15:29; 32:9; 38:72).
As stated, that everyone “proceeded forth and came from God” is not restricted to Jesus. Every person “proceedeth forth and come from God.”
In Exodus 3:14 God says His name is “I AM.” In John 8:58 Jesus says: “Before Abraham was, I am.”
This “I am” of Jesus does not mean that Jesus is saying he is God. All Jesus is saying is that before Abraham was, I am before Abraham –where the “before Abraham”is understood; much like instead of saying I am taller than he is tall,it is said I am taller than him, or I am taller than he is. (Notably, God’s “I AM” is capital letters, Jesus’ is not. God’s name is also “Jealous”–Exodus 34:14).
Jesus being before Abraham refers to him pre-existing Abraham as Solomon pre-existed Jesus–(Prov. 8:23-35). Seems everyone had a pre-existence as conveyed by Jeremiah: “the word of the Lord came unto me saying, BEFORE I FORMED THEE IN THE BELLY I knew thee”–(Jeremiah 1:5).
That every person had a pre-existence. We took an oath with Allāh God before we were sent into the world. Allāh reminds us of this in His Qur’an:
“And when thy Lord brought forth from the children of Adam, from their loins, their descendants, and made them bear witness about themselves: Am I not your Lord? They said: Yes; we bear witness. Lest you should say on the day of Resurrection: We were unaware of this, Or (lest) you should say: Only our fathers ascribed partners (to Allah) before (us), and we were (their) descendants after them. Wilt Thou destroy us for what liars did?”–(Qur’an 7:172-173).
Thus, not only Jesus, but all of us “proceedeth forth and come from God.”
And every person who submits to God and invites others to this submission to God is “one” with God.
