029: Does Paul Call Jesus ‘God’ in Romans 9:5?

029: Does Paul Call Jesus ‘God’ in Romans 9:5?

August 16, 2018

Romans 9:5 is grammatically ambiguous in the Greek. Is the passage calling Christ according to the flesh "over all God" or is God the Father described as the one who is over all in an independent doxology? This episode looks at other considerations in order to solve this ambiguity, concluding in the end that Paul does not call Christ "God" in Rom. 9:5.

027: Differences between God and Jesus Christ

August 2, 2018

Although it is common to assume, based on church traditions, that God the Father and the Son of God are coequal, there appear to be unarguable differences between these two figures. This episode sets out seven of these differences from Scripture in order to encourage conversation on this issue. It is concluded that Jesus' authentic humanity is the primary reason for why he is not coequal with God the Father.
