i am someone new to christianity. i read the doctrine of the trinity it states all the three persons in the trinity are the same,however after reading from the bible i found that there are numerous verses which prove that jesus is, not same as the father.here are some of them:
1)(Jesus said) “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” -John 17:3
jesus here calls the only true god and himself as different persons.
2)”Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.” -John 14:28
here jesus clearly says his father is greater than him.if the trinity is based on equality of father,son and holy spirit then how can one be greater than the other.
3)”Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.” -John 20:17 (see Micah 5:4).
here jesus calls the father as god then how can jesus be god.
4)(Jesus said) “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” -Mark 13:32
here jesus says no one knows of the hour of judgement except the father not even the son
clearly the son is not the same as the father.
then how can jesus be god?he is clearly different from the father who he calls god,then why is jesus called god?
5) Timothy 2:5
jesus is only called as a mediator between man and god.
6) Mark 16:19
jesus is said to sit on the right hand of god, if he is god? then how does he sit on the right hand of god.
