THE MAN, YAHSHUA
Yahshua himself proclaimed to be a man:.
But now you seek to kill me, A MAN that has told you the truth, which I have heard of Yahweh: this did not Abraham (Yahchanan [John] 8:40).
Yahshua is called a man many times in the so-called "New Testament":
For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my servant, Do this, and he does [it]. When Yahshua heard these things, he marveled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel (Lukyah 7:8-9).
Yahchanan [John] 8:40 “…a man who has told you the truth…”
Acts 2:22 “Yahshua the Nazarene, a man attested to you by Yahweh with
miracles and wonders and signs which Yahweh performed through him in your
midst, just as you yourselves know.”
Acts 17:31 “He will judge the world in righteousness through a man
whom He has appointed”
1. 1 Tim. 2:5 “…the man Messiah Yahshua.”
Yahweh is not a man, but Yahshua, may the blessing and mercy of Yahweh be upon
him, was a man, therefore, Yahshua was not Yahweh.
2. The Bible Says that Yahweh Is Not a son of man
Numbers 23:19 “Yahweh is not a man...nor a son of man…”
The Bible often calls Yahshua “a son of man” or “the son of man.”
Mattithyah [Matthew] 12:40 “…so will the son of man be…”
Mattithyah 16:27 “For the son of man is going to come…”
Mattithyah 16:28 “…until they see the son of man coming in his kingdom.”
Yahchanan Mark 2:10 “But so that you may know that the son of man has authority…”
Yahchanan [John] 5:27 “…because he is the son of man.”
In the Hebrew Scriptures, the “son of man” is also used many times
speaking of people (Job 25:6; Psalm 80:17; 144:3; Ezekiel 2:1; 2:3;
2:6; 2:8; 3:1; 3:3; 3:4; 3:10; 3:17; 3:25).
Since Yahweh would not contradict Himself by first saying He is not the
son of a man, then becoming a human being who was called “the son of
man”, he would not have done so. Remember Yahweh is not the author of
confusion. Also, human beings, including Yahshua, are called “son of
man” specifically to distinguish them from FATHER Yahweh, who is not a “son of
man” according to Scripture.
3. The Scripture Says That Yahsua Denied He Is Yahweh ("God")
Lukyah 18:19 Yahshua spoke to a man who had called him “righteous,” asking him,
“Why do you call me righteous? No one is righteous except Yahweh alone.”
Mattithyah 19:17 And he said to him, “Why are you asking me about what is
right? There is only One Who is right; but if you wish to enter into
life, keep the commandments.”
Yahshua did not teach people that he was Yahweh ("God"). If Yahshua had been telling
people that he was Yahweh ("God"), he would have complimented the man. Instead,
Yahshua rebuked him, denying he was The Righteous One, that is, Yahshua denied he was
his and our FATHER Yahweh ("God").
4. The Scripture Says That Yahweh Is Greater Than Yahshua
Yahchanan 14:28 “My Father is greater than I.”
Yahchanan 10:29 “My Father is greater than all.”
Yahshua can not be his and our FATHER Yahweh if Yahweh is greater than him. The Christian belief
that the FATHER and His SON Yahshua are equal is in direct contrast to the clear
words from Yahshua.
5. Yahshua Never Instructed His Disciples to Worship Him as FATHER Yahweh or the
"Holy Ghost", but Yahweh and Yahweh ONLY as Our Heavenly FATHER and Creator
Lukyah 11:2 “When you pray, say OUR Father which is IN HEAVEN.” Note that Yahshua was ON EARTH (or IN THE WORLD) when he said this.
Yahchanan 16:23 “In that time period, you shall ask me nothing. Whatsoever you ask
of the Father in my name.”
Yahchanan 4:23 “The hour comes and now is, when the true worshipers shall
worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeks such
to worship Him.”
If Yahshua was his and our FATHER Yahweh, he would have sought worship for himself as our Heavenly FATHER and Creator. Since he didn’t, instead he sought worship for Yahweh in the heavens, therefore,
he was not Yahweh.
6. The Scripture Says that Yahshua Recognized, Prayed, & Worshiped the
Only True Yahweh
Yahshua communicated ("prayed") to Yahweh with the words:
Yahchanan 17:3 “…that they might know You, the only true Yahweh, and Yahshua
Messiah whom You have sent.”
Yahshua prayed to his and our Father Yahweh all night:
Lukyah 6:12 “he continued all night in prayer to Yahweh.”
Mattithyah 20:28: Just as the son of man did not come to be served, but to
How did Yahshua communicate ("pray") to Yahweh?
Mattithyah 26:39 ‘…he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My
Even Shaul said:
Hebrews 5:7 “During the time of Yahshua's life on earth, he offered up
prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the One Who could
redeem him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent
Who was Yahshua communicating ("praying") to when he fell on his face with loud cries and
petitions? Was it himself? Was Yahshua crying in tears to himself
pleading to be redeemed from death? No man, sane or insane, prays to
himself! Surely the answer must be a resounding ‘No.’ Yahshua was
praying to “the only true Yahweh.” Yahshua was the servant of the One Who
sent him. Can there be a clearer proof that Yahshua is or was not Yahweh?
7. The Scripture says that the disciples did not believe Yahshua was Yahweh.
The Acts of the Apostles Scripturally detail the activity of the
disciples over a period of thirty years after Yahshua, may Yahweh praise
him, was raised to heaven. Throughout this period, they never
referred to Yahshua as "God". For instance Kepha stood up with the eleven
disciples and addressed a crowd saying:
Acts 2:22 “Men of Israel, listen to this: Yahshua of Nazareth was a man
accredited by Yahweh to you by miracles, wonders and signs, WHICH YAHWEH DID
among you THROUGH (BY WAY OF) him, as you yourselves know.”
For Kepha, Yahshua was a servant of Yahweh (confirmed in Mattithyah 12:18):
Acts 3:13 “The Almighty One of Abraham, Isaac and Yaaqob, the Almighty One of our
fathers, has esteemed his servant Yahshua.”
Acts 3:26 “Yahweh raised up his servant...”
When faced by opposition from the authorities, Kepha said:
Acts 5:29-30 “We must obey Yahweh rather than men! The Almighty One of our
fathers raised Yahshua...”
The disciples prayed to Yahweh just as they were commanded by Yahshua in
Lukyah 11:2, and considered Yahshua to be Yahweh’s servant,
Acts 4:24 “...they raised their voices together in prayer to Yahweh.
‘Sovereign Mater,’ they said, ‘you made the heaven and the earth and
the sea, and everything in them.’”
Acts 4:27 “...Your set apart servant Yahshua, whom you anointed.”
Acts 4:30 “…of Your set apart servant Yahshua.”
8. The Scripture says that Yahshua was Yahweh’s servant, chosen one, and
Mattithyah 12:18 “Behold, My servant, whom I have chosen, in whom My soul
is well pleased.”
Since Yahshua is Yahweh’s servant, Yahshua can not be Yahweh.
9. The Scripture says that Yahshua could not Do Anything by Himself.
Yahchanan 5:19 “The son can do nothing by himself; he can only do what he
sees his Father doing.”
Yahchanan 5:30 “I can of mine own self do nothing.”
Yahshua did not consider himself equal with his and our Father Yahweh, rather he denied doing
anything by himself.
10. The Scripture says that YAHWEH PERFORMED miracles THROUGH Yahshua and that Yahshua
was limited in what he could do.
Mattithyah 9:8 “But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and
esteemed Yahweh, Who had given such authority to men.”
Acts 2:22 “a man attested to you by Yahweh with miracles and wonders and
signs WHICH YAHWEH PERFORMED THROUGH him in your midst.”
Acts 10:38 “…he went about doing righteousness and healing all who were
oppressed by the devil, for Yahweh was with him.”
If Yahshua was his and our Father Yahweh, the Scripture would simply say that Yahshua did the
miracles himself without making reference to Yahweh. The fact that it
was Yahweh supplying the power (authority) for the miracles shows that Yahweh is greater
Also, Yahshua was limited in performing miracles. One time when Yahshua
tried to heal a blind man, the man was not healed after the first
attempt, and Yahshua had to try a second time (Yahchanan Mark 8:22-26). Once a
woman was healed of her incurable bleeding. The woman came up behind
him and touched his cloak, and she was immediately healed. But Yahshua
had no idea who touched him:
Yahchanan Mark 5:30 “At once Yahshua realized that power had gone out from him.
He turned around in the crowd and asked, ‘Who touched my clothes?’”
Yahchanan Mark 6:5 “He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on
a few sick people and heal them.”
Quite obviously, someone with such limitations can not be Father Yahweh. The
power of miracles was within Yahshua by way of his and our Father Yahweh.
11. The Scripture says that at times of weakness heavenly messengers (malakim, "angels") strengthened
Yahshua; Father Yahweh ,however, does not need to be strengthened.
Lukyah 22:43 “A messenger (malak, "angel") from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him
[in the garden of Gethsemane].”
Yahchanan Mark 1:13 “Then the devil left him; and behold, heavenly messengers came and began
to minister to him.”
Yahchanan Mark 1:13 “And he was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by
Satan; and he was with the wild beasts, and heavenly messengers were
ministering to him.”
Men need to be strengthened; Yahweh does not, because Yahweh is All-Powerful (Almighty). If Yahshua had to be strengthened, he most certainly was not Yahweh our Heavenly Father and Creator.
12. The Scripture says that Yahshua wanted Yahweh’s will to be done, not his
Lukyah 22:42: “not my will but Yours be done.”
Yahchanan 5:30 “I do not seek my own will, but the will of Him who sent me.”
Ychananan 6:38 “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but
the will of Him that sent me.”
Are some members of the coequal Trinity subservient, and less than
equal, to other members? Even though they have different wills (“I do
not seek my own will”), do they obey without question the others’
commands (“the will of Him who sent me”)? Yahshua admits to
subordinating his own distinct will, yet according to the Trinitarian
doctrine they should all have the same will. Should one of the triune
partners have to forgo his own will in favor of the will of another
member of the Trinity? Should not they all have the exact same will?
13. The Scripture says Yahshua regarded Yahweh’s testimony as separate from his
Yahshua regarded himself and Yahweh as two, not “one.”
Yahchanan 8:17 and 18: “I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness
is the Father.”
Yahchanan 14:1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in Yahweh; trust also
If Yahshua was Yahweh, He would have not have regarded Yahweh’s testimony as
separate from his own.
14. The Scripture says that Yahshua is subordinate to Yahweh
1 Corinthians 11:3 “Now I want you to realize that the head of every
man is Messiah, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of
Messiah is Yahweh.”
1 Corinthians 15:28 “When he has done this, then the son himself will
be made subject to Him who put everything under him, so that Yahweh may
be all in all.”
Since Yahshua was subordinate to Yahweh, he was not Yahweh.
15. The Scripture says that Yahshua grew in wisdom & learning, but Yahweh is All
Wise & does not (need to) learn
Yahshua grew in wisdom, but Yahweh is all wise:
Psalms 147:5 “Great is Yahweh and abundant in strength; His
understanding is infinite.”
Lukyah 2:52: “And Yahshua increased in wisdom.”
Yahweh does not need to learn, but Yahshua learned.
Hebrews. 5:8 “Although he was a son, he learned obedience…”
16. The Scripture says that Yahshua had limited knowledge, but Yahweh’s knowledge
Yahchanan Mark 13:32 “No one knows about that time or hour, not even the messengers (malakim "angels")
in heaven, NOR THE SON, but ONLY the Father.”
Since Yahshua, may the blessing and mercy of Yahweh be upon him, did not
know, he was not all-knowing, and therefore, he cannot be Yahweh
Whose knowledge is all-encompassing.
17. The Scripture says that Yahshua was tempted, but Yahweh cannot be tempted:
Hebrews 4:15 “tempted in every way—just as we are”
Yaaqob [James] 1:13 “for Yahweh cannot be tempted by evil”
Since Yahweh can not be tempted, but Yahshua was, therefore, Yahshua was and is not
18. The Scripture says that Yahshua's teachings were from Yahweh, NOT Yahshua himself
Yahchanan 7:16 “So Yahshua answered them and said, "My teaching is not mine,
but His who sent me.”
Yahshua would not have said this if he were Yahweh, because the doctrine
would have been his.
19. The Scripture says that Yahshua died, but Yahweh cannot die
The Scripture teaches that Yahshua died. Yahweh cannot die. Romans 1:23 and
other verses say that Yahweh is immortal. Immortal means, “not subject
to death.” This term applied only to Yahweh in this verse.
20. The Scripture says that Yahshua lived because of Yahweh
Yahachanan 6:57 “I live because of the Father.”
Yahshua cannot be Yahweh because he depended on Yahweh for his own existence.
21. The Scripture says that Yahshua's powers were given to him:
Mattithyah 28:18 “All power is given unto me.”
Yahweh is all-powerful (Almighty), no one gives Yahweh His power (authority), otherwise He would
not be Yahweh because He would be weak. Therefore, Yahshua could not be
22. The Scripture says that Yahshua was taught & commanded by Yahweh
Yahchanan 8:28 “As my Father has taught me, I speak these things,”
Yahchanan 12:49 “The Father, who sent me, he gave me a commandment.”
Yahchanan 15:10 “I have kept my Father’s commandments.”
No one can teach Yahweh, otherwise Yahweh cannot be All-Knowing and would
owe His teacher. Since Yahshua was taught and commanded by Yahweh, Yahshua
cannot be Yahweh himself. The teacher and the student, the commander and
the commanded are not one and the same being.
23. The Scripture says that Yahweh made Yahshua Master (“Lord”)
Acts 2:36 “Yahweh has made this Yahshua... both Master ("Lord") and Messiah.”
The word “Lord” is used in many ways in the translation of Scripture, and others beside Yahweh and
Yahshua are called “Lord” in translation. For example:
1) property owners (Matt. 20:8)
2) heads of households (Mk 13:35)
3) slave owners (Matt. 10:24)
4) husbands (1 Pet. 3:6)
5) a son called his father Lord in translation (Matt. 21:30)
6) the Roman Emperor was called Lord in translation (Acts 25:26)
7) Roman authorities were called Lord in translation (Matt. 27:63)
“Lord” is not the same as “God” in translation. “Lord” (the Greek word is kurios) is
a masculine title of respect and nobility used many times in Scripture translation. If Yahshua were Yahweh, then for the Scripture to say he was “made”
Master ("Lord") would make no sense.
24. The Scripture says that Yahshua was lower than the heavenly messengers (malakim, "angels")
Hebrews 2:9 “But we do see him who was made for a little while lower
than the malakim, namely, Yahshua.”
Yahweh, the Creator of malakim, can not be lower than His own creation,
but Yahshua was. Therefore, Yahshua was and is not Yahweh.
25. The Scripture says that Yahweh called the Father “my Almighty On ("God")”
Mattithyah 27:46 “My Almighty One (or "My strength"), My Almighty One, why have You forsaken me?”
Yahchanan 20:17 “I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my Almighty One and your
Almighty One ("God").”
Revelation 3:12 “… the temple of my Almighty One… the name of my Almighty One… the city of my
Almighty One… comes down out of heaven from my Almighty One.”
Yahshua did not think of himself as the Almighty One, instead Yahshua's Almighty One ("God") is the same as
26. The Scripture says that Yahweh cannot be seen, but Yahshua was
Yahchanan 1:18 “no man has seen Yahweh at any time.”
27. The Scripture says twice that Yahshua was accused of being "God", but he denied
According to the so-called "New Testament", on only two instances the Jews opposed Yahshua
on the basis that he pretended or made himself out to be "God" or equal with Yahweh. Had
Yahshua, may the blessing and mercy of Yahweh be upon him, claimed to be
"God", he is likely to have been opposed on this basis more frequently.
Because in these two instances, when charged, in the one case, with
making himself "God", and in the other, with making himself equal with
Yahweh, he denied the charges. In reply to the charge of being an equal
with Yahweh, he says immediately:
John 5:19, 30 “The son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the
Father do”; and directly after:
“I can of mine own self do nothing.”
In answer to the charge of making himself "God", he appeals to the Jews
in substance thus: Your own Scriptures call Moses a god, and your
magistrates gods; I am surely not inferior to them, yet I did not call
myself "God", but only the “son” of Yahweh (Yahchanan 10:34-36).
This is unlikely to have been Jesus' actual response. Hastings in
“The Dictionary of the Bible” says, “Whether Jesus used it of himself
is doubtful.” Grolier’s encyclopedia, under the heading “Jesus
Christ,” says, “it is uncertain whether the Father/Son language (Mark
18:32; Matt. 11:25-27 par.; John passim) goes back to Jesus himself.”
A University of Richmond professor, Dr. Robert Alley, after
considerable research into newly found ancient documents concludes
“....The (Biblical) passages where Jesus talks about the Son of God
are later additions.... what the church said about him. Such a claim
of deity for himself would not have been consistent with his entire
lifestyle as we can reconstruct. For the first three decades after
Jesus’ death Christianity continued as a sect within Judaism. The
first three decades of the existence of the church were within the
synagogue. That would have been beyond belief if they (the followers)
had boldly proclaimed the deity of Jesus.”
Assuming Jesus did say that he was “son” of God. What did it mean?
We first need to know the language of his people, the language of the
Jews to whom he was speaking.
First, most people think there are no other verses that contradict or
give equal divine sonship to other persons in the Old or New
Testament. But according to the Bible God had quite a few “sons”:
Adam, Jacob is God’s son and firstborn, Solomon, Ephraim
is God’s firstborn, common people are called the sons of God. All
four Gospels record Jesus as saying, “Blessed are the peace-makers;
they will be called sons of God.”
The word “son” cannot be accepted literally because in the Bible, God
apparently addresses many of his chosen servants as “son” and “sons.”
The Hebrews believed God is One, and had neither wife nor children in
any literal sense. Therefore, it is obvious the expression “son of
God” merely meant “Servant of God”; one who, because of faithful
service, was close and dear to God as a son is to his father.
Christians who came from a Greek or Roman background, later misused
this term. In their heritage, “son of God” signified an incarnation
of a god or someone born of a physical union between male and female
gods. This can be seen in Acts 14: 11-13, where we read that when
Paul and Barnabas preached in a city of Turkey, pagans claimed they
were gods incarnate. They called Barnabas the Roman god Zeus, and
Paul the Roman god Hermes.
Furthermore, the New Testament Greek word translated as “son” are
“pias” and “paida” which mean “servant,” or “son in the sense of
servant.” These are translated to “son” in reference to Jesus and
“servant” in reference to all others in some translations of the
Bible. So, consistent with other verses, Jesus was merely saying that
he is God’s servant.
Additional Problems with Trinity
To a Christian, God had to take human form to understand temptation
and human suffering, but the concept is not based on any clear words
of Jesus. In contrast, God does not need to be tempted and suffer in
order to be able to understand and forgive man’s sins, for He is the
all knowing Creator of man. This is expressed in the verse:
Exodus 3:7 “And the Lord said: ‘I have surely seen the affliction of
My people that are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of
their taskmasters; for I know their pains.’”
God forgave sin before Jesus’ appearance, and He continues to forgive
without any assistance. When a believer sins, he may come before God
in sincere repentance to receive forgiveness. Indeed, the offer to
humble oneself before God and be saved is made to all humankind.
Isaiah 45:21-22, cf. Jonah 3:5-10 “And there is no God else beside Me;
a just God and a Savior; there is none beside Me. Look to Me, and be
saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none
Biblically, people can receive forgiveness of sins through sincere
repentance sought directly from God. This is true at all times and in
all places. There has never been a need for the so-called
intercessionary role Jesus plays in attaining atonement. The facts
speak for themselves. There is no truth to the Christian belief that
Jesus died for our sins and salvation is only through Jesus. What
about the salvation of people before Jesus? Jesus’ death brings
neither atonement from sin, nor is it in any way a fulfillment of
Christians claim that in the birth of Jesus, there occurred the
miracle of the incarnation of God in the form of a human being. To
say that God became truly a human being invites a number of questions.
Let us ask the following about the man-God Jesus. What happened to
his foreskin after his circumcision (Luke 2:21)? Did it ascend to
heaven, or did it decompose as with any human piece of flesh? During
his lifetime what happened to his hair, nails, and blood shed from
wounds? Did the cells of his body die as in ordinary human beings?
If his body did not function in a truly human way, he could not be
truly human as well as truly God. Yet, if his body functioned exactly
in a human way, this would nullify any claim to divinity. It would be
impossible for any part of God, even if incarnate, to decompose in any
way and still be considered God. The everlasting, one God, in whole
or in part, does not die, disintegrate, or decompose:
Malachi 3:6 “For I the Lord do not change.”
Did Jesus’ flesh dwell in safety after his death? Unless Jesus’ body
never underwent “decay” during his lifetime he could not be God, but
if it did not undergo “decay” then he was not truly human.
 “Adam, which was the son of God.” (Luke 3:38)
 “Israel is my son, even my firstborn.” (Exodus 4:22)
 “I will be his father, and he shall be my son.” (2 Samuel 7:13-14)
 “for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.”
 “Ye are the children of the Lord your God” (Deuteronomy 14:1)
