Re: Paul and Jesus

People who think they find problematic differences between Jesus and Paul need to learn to think more clearly about things they read. Here is a link to my chart demonstrating that Paul and Jesus taught everything of significance the same. http://www.matthew713.com/notes/files/J ... HHhqlIEVWs Thank...

Paul and Jesus

I believe Paul and Luke who wrote a lot about him but there are some apparent differences between his teachings and certain of Jesus teachings. One of the apparent differences is about Pastors and teachers. In John 10.16 Jesus is called the "sole pastor" and Matt 23.8-10 "sole teacher." The greek wo...

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

[ color=#BF0000] The actions and teachings of Jesus reflected and imaged the Father. Jesus exegetes the Father through his own life that was seen and observed. That was what I think Jesus'was meaning by seeing the Fsther by seeing Jesus[/color]. What do you think Jesus meant when he said that and ho...

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

When Jesus said "Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.”

That is talking about ‘form' imo.




To me it sounds like "the essence" of God , since God is Spirit & Jesus was a man I don't connect how it refers to outward appearance.

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

According to the Online Bible Program's Greek lexicon, the Greek word μορφη (usually translated as "form") refers to: 1) the form by which a person or thing strikes the vision 2) external appearance I think it's clear it could be about "the outer" or "the inner" so then this is about context and my...

Re: Chuck Colson quote

to which someone countered: "People can believe whatever they want, but that meme is just based off very poor epistemology" How might I best respond to this? It wasn't just the twelve it was the 500 who saw the resurrected Christ & they probably were the fuel for the new Christian community that gr...

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

The word seems to refer to the outward appearance.







What would it mean to be in the outward appearance of God since God is Spirit? Paul also said Christ was the exact image of God, what do you think he meant in this case?

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

On a side note when considering man was made in God's image, I find it interesting that Eve was brought into being by removing a piece of Adam, so that she was “begotten” directly from him, rather than created separately. Perhaps this is a picture of the Logos coming out from God?

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

Philippians 2:6-8 (6) Who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, (7) but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. (8) Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedie...

Re: Reconciled to God , not Jesus

That doesn’t necessarily imply some pre-incarnate existence as God, the Godness of which He emptied himself. Besides, how could he still be fully God if he emptied himself of that Godness? Paul did say "He existed in the form of God" before getting to the section about emptying himself and this sou...
