Where The New Testament Refutes The Christian Trinity

PART 2:  THE PROBLEM OF THE SON

The Master and the servant
There are many New Testament passages that refute the Christian doctrine of the Trinity.  An examination of statements attributed to Jesus by the Gospels, shows that he never said he was God or a part of God.  Jesus spoke of his Father in heaven as his God (John 20:17), to whom he attributed superior authority, knowledge, and greatness (Matthew 20:23, Mark 13:32, John 14:28).  The Trinity doctrine says “the Father” and “the Son” are coequal in power and substance, but what does the New Testament have to say?

Understanding How Jesus Shared His Portion of Spoils

Continued from Part 28

Jesus and the spoils of war shared with the mighty.
What portion did Jesus share with the great, what spoil did he divide with the mighty? Who are the “great” and who are the “mighty” with whom he supposedly interacted and shared the “spoil”?   Where and what is the fulfillment?   Is fulfillment left to the “he’s coming any day now” second coming farce?  Christians, get over it, he’s not coming back–not then, not now, not ever.

The Legitimate Cause of Jesus’ Death

Not by blood loss
Presuming Jesus was nailed to the cross, did blood oozing from the nail wounds cause his death?  The Roman method of execution by crucifixion was designed as a punishment to be prolonged in order to serve as a lesson to both the victim and all onlookers.  Since no vital organ would be pierced crucifixion usually caused a slow death.  If the victim expired within a short time he would deprive his executioners of satisfactorily meting out the sentence in accordance with their concept of justice.  

The Misconceptions Around Jesus Healing The Sick And Afflicted

ISAIAH 53:4

5:4:  “Surely our diseases he did bear, and our pains he carried; but we considered him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.”

The servant as a vehicle for bearing “our” diseases and pains.
Did Jesus heal the sick and infirm?  Matthew makes use of Isaiah 53:4.  He writes:  “This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, ‘He took our sicknesses and carried our diseases’

What The Gospels Truly Say About Jesus Being Afflicted

Continued from Part 6

Jesus’ popularity in review:

Do the Gospel’s describe Jesus as a person who “was despised and rejected,” or from whom people fled?  The words:  “He was despised and rejected of men … and as one from whom men hide their faces … and we esteemed him not” cannot be applied to Jesus if one is to believe the Gospel narratives.
