Helpers From Jesus-Christ-as-God
Most Versions of the Bible wrongly capitalize
the word “God” in Hebrews 1:8 hebrews-1-8
and elsewhere. In a sense, the answer is also
Yes because Jesus is called “god” in the Bible.
The answer is No because Jesus is never
called “God” in the same way as is the Father,
who Jesus himself referred to as
“the only true God” (John 17:3 John+17-3 ).
There is only one “capital-G” God,
and that is the Father (1 Cor. 8:6 1Cor.8 6 ).
And, as we will see, Jesus is far and away the
best of all the “small-g” gods.
Jesus is called “god” in the Bible? Yes,
And so are Satan, Moses, the spiritual leaders
“god” in Scripture will show that there are
quite a number of different ways that word
is used, and that whether or not it is
capitalized makes a big difference in its meaning.
So let’s look into the answer to this
frequently asked question, starting in
John 10:25-39 John+10-39 . For the sake of
brevity, and because the scriptures I will cite
are covered in our book,
I will paraphrase (and perhaps colloquialize)
some of them. On this Biblical Unitarian
website, you can go to “An Explanation of Verses
Sometimes Used to Support the Trinity”
and see what we say about the verses I
mention or click on the hyper links for
In John 10, the Jews were bugging Jesus
to tell them once and for all if he was the
Messiah, and he replied by saying (v. 25ff)
that it should have been obvious to them
by the miracles he did. He then drew a
parallel between him and his Father
(vv. 28,29), saying that no one could snatch
a chosen one from either of their hands.
His next statement has been too often
wrenched from its context and grossly
misinterpreted: “I and my Father are one.”
How so? Clearly, in the sense that he just stated.
The Jews, very dissatisfied with Jesus’
answer, picked up stones to kill him,
whereupon Jesus asked them which miracle
they didn’t like. “It’s not the miracles,”
they said, “it’s that you, a man, claim to
be a god.” That is the proper translation
of the verse, but nearly all Bible versions
mistranslate it as “…claim to be God,” and,
without a shred of textual justification,
the NIV goes so far as to add in the
adjective “mere” before the word “man.”
Both of those Translational foibles serve only
to confuse people about this classic and critical
section of Scripture. No Jew in his right mind
would have said that Jesus was claiming to be
God (Yahweh). Had they thought that, they
would have dismissed him as demented.
They all knew that the Messiah was to be
a man, but they had it in for Jesus and
refused to believe that he was that man.
Had Jesus been “God” in the sense that
most Christians today think he is, this
was his golden opportunity to make
that clear: “You’re right—I am God.” Instead,
quoting from Psalm 82 Psalm+82 , he said,
“Hold it, doesn’t the Old Testament call the
bad about me saying I’m the Son of God?”
By the way, if words have definitive meanings
, one cannot be both the Son of God and God.
Look at Psalm 82—it’s only eight verses, and
is talking about God’s evaluation of those He
had called to lead
Hebrew usage of the word “god” as referring t
o one whom God chose as His representative.
In verses 2-7 God laments how badly those “gods”
were doing in caring for His people, and the
psalm closes in verse 8 with a plea for the Messiah
to come and rule the earth righteously.
Unfortunately, the word “god” is wrongly
capitalized in verse 8.
Let’s look at a couple of other places in the
Old Testament where the Messiah is referred
to as “god.” The first is Isaiah 9:6—Merry
Christmas! Sure, you’ve no doubt seen a card
with that verse on it. Too bad the word “god”
is once again wrongly capitalized. The Messiah
would not be the mighty “God,” he would be the
mighty “god.” The Moffatt Bible and Martin
Luther’s translation read “mighty hero” rather
than “mighty God.” That is a very accurate
rendering, because, as the ultimate
representative of God, the Messiah would be the
hero of all heroes. And Jesus was exactly that!
He perfectly represented God’s heart to mankind.
He is the “god” called for in Psalm 82:8.
How about Psalm 45, another prophecy about
the Messiah—this one about him riding forth
victoriously to conquer and then rule the earth
as God’s perfect representative. Verses 6 and 7
are quoted in Hebrews 1:8 and 9, which is where
we will go next. Sad to say that in verse 6 the
word “god” is once again mis-capitalized as
“God.” No, like Psalm 82 and Isaiah 9:6, this
psalm is also speaking of the Man among men, t
he one whom God would empower to restore
OK, let’s look at Hebrews 1, and the context
of the quote from Psalm 45. For the record,
Hebrews 1 and 2 are a trenchant account of
Jesus Christ’s journey from suffering to glory,
emphasizing why he had to be a man
the Last Adam) in order to be the Redeemer
of mankind. They are covered in detail in
Chapters 2 and 3 of our One God & One Lord
book. Hebrews 1:1-3 shows how God did His
best in Old Testament times to communicate
to mankind via the spoken and written words
of the prophets, but what He really had in
mind was Jesus, His ultimate image. Verse 4
then begins a most significant analogy between
Jesus and the angels that goes all the way
through Chapter 2.
Verses 5, 6, and 7, each quoting an Old Testament
reference, are speaking about the resurrection of
Jesus Christ (v. 5—it’s not about his birth—look at
Ps. 2:7 & Acts ) and his return to the earth
to rule (v. 6). Verse 8 clarifies that Psalm 45:6
and 7 are a Messianic prophecy, but the translators
once again mis-capitalize “god” as “God.”
But look at verse 9! It says, “…therefore God,
even your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.” Say, if one is
God, how can anyone else be his “God”?
That should be a more frequently asked question!
In agreement with many other verses of Scripture,
Hebrews 1:9 is clearly saying that because Jesus
dead and highly exalted (anointed) him as Lord.
Another pertinent verse is John , where
Thomas cried out upon first seeing the resurrected
Christ: “My Lord and my God.” Many people use that
verse to prove that Jesus is God, but it does not, for
two reasons. The first is that the Bible is not stating
that Jesus is God, the Bible is stating that Thomas
called Jesus “God.” And the second reason is that
“God” should be “god.” As a Jew, Thomas was
familiar with that usage of the word “god.”
So, the Bible does refer to Jesus as “god,”
but only in the sense of his being the perfect
representative of the only true God, his Father
and his God. Neither God nor Jesus ever said
that he is God. Both call him the Son of God. Amen.
