    I never read that Lord Jesus said that He is God. He had been saying My Father. So I concluded that He is s true Man and God gave him a special power to redeem us. But deep in my heart I am not really happy. So I prayed that God give an answer to my question. Suddenly I read the Hebrews 1. I have always encountered this chapter but never understood the deep meaning. Thanks God for the answer. Amen

    Snoopy "but not really the same as the Father,but that he was created by the Father" Are you referring to Paul in this statement or Jesus?

    The letter, probably written by Barnabas, Paul's companion talks of Jesus' stature in the heaven world, his sublime creation by the Father, higher than the angels but not really the same as the Father in that he was created by the Father, and assured of his heights in the heavens by righteousness on earth. The Father has always emphasized righteousness steadfastly as the way to his mercy. Love..
