Discussion for John 17

    God and Jesus are one they were one before the world began. He always was and always will be. It always was God the Father, God the Son and god the Holy Ghost. They all have separate duties and description but they are one. Jesus did the work God gave him to do and finished the work.
  • John B
    In the beginning he said let US make man. Jesus said I and my Father are one. For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and cleave unto his wife and they twain shall be one.
    Like the Father and Son are one.

    Ephesians 4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: We must look in to our hearts and find what's there. God can see our hearts, we will before him confess the Jesus is God. Love Love Love
