are One | John 10:30

Verse Explanation
John 10:30 “I and my Father are one.” This verse shows Jesus speaking of his unity with the Father, but not necessarily implying a oneness of essence.
John 17:21 “May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” Jesus prays for unity among his followers and with God. Again, this unity is not necessarily a oneness of essence.
John 17:23 “I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity.” Jesus continues his prayer for unity among his followers and with God.
John 17:11 “That they may be one as we are one.” Jesus again prays for unity among his followers and with God.
John 6:38 “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of Him that sent me.” Jesus acknowledges that he has his own will, separate from the Father.
John 20:17 “I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.” Jesus speaks of God as his Father and the Father of his followers. This verse shows that Jesus does not consider himself to be the only Son of God, but rather one of many.

In these verses, Jesus speaks of his unity with the Father and prays for unity among his followers and with God. However, this unity does not necessarily imply a oneness of essence. Jesus acknowledges that he has his own will, separate from the Father. He also refers to God as his Father and the Father of his followers, showing that he does not consider himself to be the only Son of God. In the Bible, the term “son of God” is used to refer to good people who follow God, not as a literal relationship between a father and a son. The word “father” is also used in the Bible to refer to God, 

Additional references and context to support the idea that Jesus is not God and that all of us are the same as Jesus:

? John 5:30 – “By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.” Here, Jesus is stating that he cannot do anything by himself and that he is not acting on his own accord, but rather doing the will of the one who sent him.

? John 14:28 – “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.” In this verse, Jesus is making it clear that the Father is greater than him, showing that he is not equal to God.

? Mark 10:18 – “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.” Here, Jesus is rejecting the idea that he is good in the sense of being God.

? Acts 2:22 – “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.” In this verse, Peter is speaking to a crowd about Jesus, emphasizing that he was a man accredited by God, not God himself.

? 1 Timothy 2:5 – “For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.” This verse is clear in stating that Jesus is the mediator between God and humanity, not God himself.

Additional Information 

? John 10:30 – “I and the Father are one.” This statement has been interpreted to mean that Jesus is claiming to be the same person as God the Father. However, the Greek word “hen” used here suggests that Jesus is claiming to be united with God the Father in purpose and mission, rather than claiming to be the same person as him.

? John 17:11,21-22 – Jesus asks that his followers may be one with him and with God in the same way that he and the Father are one.

? 1 Corinthians 3:8 – Paul uses a similar phrase, saying that he and Apollos are one in their work for God, but this does not mean that they are the same person.

? John 10:32 – “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?” Jesus emphasizes the importance of his works as evidence of his divine authority as a messenger of God. He challenges his opponents to explain why they are accusing him of blasphemy when he has only done good works that are consistent with God’s will.

? John 5:36 – Jesus says that his works testify to his authority as a messenger of God.

? Acts 2:22 – Peter emphasizes the importance of Jesus’ works in his preaching, saying that they are evidence of his divine authority.

? John 10:37 – “Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father.” Jesus makes it clear that his words and actions are not his own, but are in alignment with the will of God the Father. He challenges his opponents to test his claims by evaluating whether his works are consistent with God’s will.

? John 14:10 – Jesus says that the words he speaks and the works he does are from the Father, not from himself.

? John 5:30 – Jesus says that he can do nothing on his own, but only does what he sees the Father doing.

In summary, these verses and other references in the Gospel of John suggest that Jesus is claiming authority as a messenger of God, rather than claiming to be the same person as God the Father. His works and words are consistent with God’s will and testify to his divine authority as a messenger of God.

  • Here in this context Jesus reminds Jews who played this trick of accusing him he is god or claims to be He said you too claim are gods, In the Bible god is not God, Son of God is not God.

Old part 

John 10:30-38
30 I and the Father are one.
31 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him,
32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”
33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.
34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods.
35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of Godcame—and Scripture cannot be set aside.
36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world?Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?
37 Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father.
38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.

  • Here in this context Jesus reminds Jews who played this trick of accusing him he is god or claims to be He said you too claim are gods, In the Bible god is not God, Son of God is not God.

?John 17:21
that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

?John 17:23
I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

  • Christians!! Why do you twist verses to mislead humans ?

?John 10:30 
I and my Father are one””One” what does it mean ? Being one essence  ?! Let us see what jesus meant by ” one “

 ?John 17:11
I will no longer be in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, protect them by Your name, the name You gave Me, so that they may be one as We are one.

  • So that they may be one as we are one ” If “one”means one essence then the apostles are one essence !! Can apostles be one ?!! Indeed , being one means being in one side against evil and Satan The truth  is confirmed by these verses ?
