Thanks, Marc.

First and Last

Let’s start by noting the weight of the instances that have Jesus calling himself “the First and the Last” in the book of Revelation, associating that designation as following his death and resurrection.

1. That the Lord Jesus is the First and the Last necessitates that He is Almighty God in that He always existed.

Seeing that there is only a 1500 word limit I was surprised to see that Danny didn’t select a few passages and give a thorough explanation/defense for his position. What he often did do is simply give a scant one or two sentence affirmation followed by several passages. The somewhat large amount of passage citations may look impressive and convince the unsuspecting but this shotgun approach still doesn’t hit its intended target of attempting to prove that the Father alone is Almighty God.

A Granville-Sharpian greeting to each forum reader in the name of God and our Lord Jesus Christ! This is the second discussion on these matters that I have had with my capable friend Marc Taylor. I have learned some things since that discussion with him in June-October of 2006. I have discarded and indeed embraced some other things since that time. But this is all in a careful desire to be taught by God and refined by him as I come to more perfectly and responsibly understand truth as revealed in Scripture. And I am confident that our debate will be instructive to all. Let me begin by expressing briefly that I happily write here on our assigned topic that affirms Jesus to be Christ, the Son of God. And everyone here embracing that truth may have life in his name (John 20:31).

Who is God? Is there any other question more important than this? Is God a singular individual or a multi-personal being? Has the Church been duped into settling for a philosophically sophisticated substitute in the place of the simple God of Judaism? Should Jesus be worshiped and if so how? Is the Holy Spirit a distinct person or is it/he just a way of talking about God’s presence in the world. These questions and many more demand satisfying and cogent biblical answers.
