There is every reason for the distinction, Tb.
Jesus is the second person of the Trinity. B. is not.
samtonga43 believes that those verses mean that Jesus is God, so I looked up all these verses to see if any of them show that Jesus is God. I see no indications of any such thing but since I did all this work I decided to start a new thread for people to comment upon.It is not I who is dreaming, Tb.
Wake up and read:--
Titus 2:13; Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 1:8; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17; Revelation 1:7; 2:8; 1 Corinthians 10:4; 1 Peter 5:4; Mark 14:61-62; Daniel 7:13-14; Mark 2:3-12; Matthew 2:11; 28:9, 17; Luke 24:52; John 9:38; 20:28;
Matthew 25:31-46; Mark 8:34-38; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; Matthew 28:9; Luke 24:36-43; John 20:26-30, 21:1-14; Acts 1:3-6
Using your analytical and logical abilities, does anyone see anything in any of these verses that would show that Jesus is God? I see several verses that would indicate that Jesus is not God, but I am all worn out so I am not going to say anything right now.
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Revelation 1:7; 2:8;
7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
1 Corinthians 10:4;
4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
1 Peter 5:4;
4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.
5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
6 But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?
9 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?
10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
11 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.
12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.
Matthew 2:11; 28:9, 17;
11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.
9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
John 9:38; 20:28;
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
