Jesus said: "He who has seen me has seen the
Father" (Jn.14:9), does this not prove that Jesus Christ and his Father
were one and the same?
One day to prove a point and settle an argument, Jesus picked up
a child and said to his disciples; "Whoever receives this child
in my name receives me; and whoever receives me receives Him
who sent me;" (Luke 9:48).
Jesus said; "He who believes in me does not believe in me,
but in Him who sent me." (John 12:44)
"He who hates me hates my Father also. ...but now
they have both seen and hated me and my Father
as well." (John 15:23-24)
"And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee
the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou
hast sent." (John 17:3).
The call of sincerity demands that if believing in the Truth is
the honest intention then one could only pass an ethical judgement
after reflecting upon all the relevant texts.
John 17:3 (quoted above), if read with the following verse
clears the air.
Hot Tip: (precise and pertinent)
Jesus said; "Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is
not greater than his master; neither is the one who is sent greater than the one who
sent him." (John 13:16). During his ministry, Jesus repeatedly said he was
sent by his Father.
