It is common knowledge that the divinity of Jesus
was introduced by Paul, who never met Jesus or
his followers, and was established on the dead
bodies of millions of Christians through history
which evoked Castillo’s well-known remark “To
burn a man is not to prove a doctrine.”s As the
doctrine of the divinity of Jesus Christ is
presented, keep in mind these two very important

(Matthew 5:17 & 18): “Think not that I come to
destroy the law or the prophets, I come not to
destroy but to fulfill…”

Is Jesus God? Some Christians would say; yes, and
use John 1:1; In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God, and the Word was
God, as their support. But remember, as stated
earlier in John 5:37, no man has seen or heard
God. So using John 1:1 in support that Jesus is
God would mean that there are at least two Gods
(God and Jesus). Let me point out other
disagreements to John 1:1 from Deuteronomy
4:39, Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaac 43:10-11, Isaac
44:6 and Isaac 45:18.

For Isaac 43:10-11 states
that there is no savior but God, and Isaac 45:18
concludes that God alone was the Creator and no
one else, not even Jesus, participated in the
creation. Other verses that support the oneness of
God, as do the entire Quran, can be found in
Deuteronomy 4:35, Exodus 8:10, II Samuel
7:22, I Kings 8:23, I Chronicles 17:20, Psalms
86:8, 89:6 and 113:5, Hosea 13:4 and Zachariah
In the New Testament, Jesus specifically said he
came not to destroy the law, and he confirms that
in relationship to the oneness of God in Mark

“And Jesus answered him, The first of all the
commandments is, Hear, 0 Israel: The Lord
Q!!! God is one Lord.”

And 1 Corinthians 8:4:
” …none other God but one.”

Now, is John 1:1 right and are all these other
verses wrong, or the reverse? It is plain to see that
Jesus was still trying to teach (the Children of
Israel) the first commandment of the Old
Testament (Mark 12:29-30, Exodus 20:2-5) and
that repentance of sins was necessary for the
Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 4:17 & Mark

Lastly, Matthew 19:16-17, also conveys
the Oneness of God and gives the guidance based
on the commandments of the Old Testament for
entering into eternal life:

“And behold one came and said to him (Jesus),
Good teacher, what good thing shall I do that I
may have eternal life? So he said to him, Why
do you call me good? – No one is good but One,
this is, God. But if you want to enter into
eternal life, keep the commandments.”
Another way to further clarify John 1:1 is to
introduce to you what the Quran says about Jesus
and the Word. In Chapter 3:45:
Behold! the angels said: “0 Mary! Allah giveth
thee glad tidings ofa Word from Him: his name
will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in
honor in this world and the Hereafter, and of
(the company of) those nearest to Allah. ”
This verse and verse 3:39 of the Quran pronounce
Jesus as a word from Allah as do 1 Corinthians

“And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.”
Maybe John 1:1 should have been written as
” …and the Word was God’s.”s There are other
verses of the Bible that support that the Word was
God’s: John 5:30-31, John 8:40, John 12:49, and
John 17:3.
