Wesley's Notes for John 10:30


10:30 I and the Father are one - Not by consent of will only, but by unity of power, and consequently of nature. Are - This word confutes Sabellius, proving the plurality of persons: one - This word confutes Arius, proving the unity of nature in God. Never did any prophet before, from the beginning of the world, use any one expression of himself, which could possibly be so interpreted as this and other expressions were, by all that heard our Lord speak. Therefore if he was not God he must have been the vilest of men.

Discussion for John 10:30

  • Harish BJ for verse 30
    God is Trinity. Example: My name is Harish God Let 's divide my body into 3 parts: 1 My head assume that it is 'Father ' 2 My body from neck to stomach assume that it is 'Son ' 3 My legs from stomach to toes assume that it is 'Holy Sprit ' All the 3 parts are different and it is linked. If any one part also is removed then I am no more Harish God . All the above 3 parts put together becomes Harish God . My Head Father controls itself and the other 2 parts. Note: Jesus said, "My father is greater than I. " Brain head Father is greater than any other parts of the body because it has control over all the parts of the body. I hope you understood the Holy Trinity.
  • 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.
  • I think jesus is GOD in spirit..and also the son of GOD.

  • Michael Adams for verse 30
    By reading some of the comments, I got a much better understanding of who Jesus is. All three are One God.
  • Olwethu for verse 30
    Jesus is the spokeperson in God house. He is the High Priest of God house from eternity. He is God in flesh. Jesus in not the Father and He is not the Holy Spirit, He is the Son of the Living God from eternity. If God The father is Jesus and Holy Spirit is Jesus, the whole bible is not Holy. In Hebrews Chapter one God the Father is declaring his Son as God. So what more do we want from Jesus The Word .
