  • How do you explain three gods in one when you read Moses simple statement at the end of Deuteronomy 4:39? Does the prophet Isaiah agree with Moses at Isa 44:8? Both authors agree that Jesus is not God and affirm that there is no one else! The term "three gods in one " is not a bible teaching. After reading about his father, even Jesus knew there was no one else.
