The Gospel Truth The Truth vs. The Deception

The God of Israel, the God of Jesus

Jesus is the Way, Truth, Life


There is one God, the Father, the Creator of heaven and earth1 and He, the Father, is above all2. The Father is the only God,3 the true God,4 the only true God5 The one God is the God and Father of Jesus.6 As an obedient Jew born under the Law, Jesus' God was the God of Israel, the God of the Shema, "YAHWEH our God, YAHWEH is one"7 and for Jesus there was no other God but He.8 The only true God is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ9 and there is no other God besides him.10

The only true God is the God revealed by Jesus, his God and he mediates between his God and Father and mankind.
