  • Peter on John 10:30
    As I understand this phrase, when Jesus spoke of his Oneness with his Father, he was describing His Ultimate Reality the Spiritual Essence at the heart of His Being. He was not making a special claim about his physical self, Jeshua of Nazareth. The Bible reports that he also said, 'All these things that I have done will you also do, and even greater things than these. ' Jesus is described in the Gospel as "God s Only Son ". God has one Son, not many. I don 't understand that to mean that Jesus was God 's Child and we are not. Rather, God has One Spiritual Child and we are all It. Our Real Identity is God 's Son. In other words, we are not many spirits, souls or bodies. We are One Spirit. In the Father, I am you and you are me. This explains why when I help another person feel happy, I experience happiness myself. It is why when I love my neighbour I am loving myself. These teachings are difficult if not impossible for our intellect to grasp, yet when we ponder them in stillness and in quiet, we may find that they speak to our Soul. Through meditation on the words, we may come to an appreciation of a truth towards which words can only point. We experience this as the peace which passes all understanding the Peace of God.
  • Evangelist Jordan - in Reply on John 10:30
    Jesus is god's only begotten son! we are children of god because jesus shed his precious blood to redeem us from the devil. jesus said, "i and my father are one." we can become one with the father, but jesus is already one with him! jesus is the great i am! when he said "i am he"...the roman soldiers went backward and fell to the ground! hallelujah! jesus is god the son!
