Is Jesus Equal To The Father?
"AD 200 Noetus had been expelled from the Smyrnaean church for teaching that Christ was the Father, and that the Father himself was born, and suffered, and died." [A History of the Christian Church 2nd Ed. 1985 Williston Walker]
Simple answer to the question is that no Jesus is not equal to The Father nor can he ever be. Jesus himself confess many times that The Father is greater than him and everyone.
"My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all.." [John 10:29]
"By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me." [John 5:30]
"Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his Lord, nor is one who is sent greater than the One who sent him." [John 13:16]
"The Father is greater than I." [John 14:28]
"So Jesus told them, "My message is not my own; it comes from God who sent me." [John 7:16]
Jesus was send by God to spread the true teachings and to deliever the God message to the people of Israel.
"Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work." [John 4:34]
The problem with Trinity is that it it was never preached by Jesus. Infact Jesus himself was a Monotheist not a Trinitarian. The word trnity doesn't appear in the whole scripture nor was preached by Jesus. If Jesus is equals to The Father why didn't he plainly said it rather than leaving Christians at the horns of dilemma. Trinity was introduced in Christianity by Paul who and was merely one of the Pagan Origins That Made Its Place Into Christianity.
"The term 'Trinity' does not appear in scripture" [Catholic Encyclopedia 1991]
"Anyone who can worship a trinity and insist that his religion is a monotheism can believe anything." -- Robert A. Heinlein
Trinity existed before coming of Jesus and was a Pagan practice. Early Christians Rejected Trinity but today it is believed as a part of religion by many Christians.
The trinity was not there after 300 years of Jesus, nor ever preached by Jesus. The Old Testament is purely Monotheist and accepts the existence of only one God. The Attributes of Jesus Didn't Match With Attributes Of God
"For thou shalt worship no other god" [Exodus 34:14]
"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one." [Deuteronomy 6:4]
And finally this verse comepletely answer the question.
"When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him [The Father] who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all." [1 Corinthians 15:28]
Jesus will be made subjected to The Father that is he is beneath the Father. How come Jesus be equal to Father when the scripture says Jesus will be made subjected to God. The word "subject" in the verse above is "hupotasso" in the Greek (#5293 in Strong's Concordance) , and means " subordinate...to be under obedience ." The root word is"hupo" (#5259 Strong's) and means " beneath...in an inferior position ." The Council of Nicea (325 A.D.) declared that Jesus is "co-equal" with God, but the apostle Paul did not know that. He says that Jesus will live eternally "subject" (subordinate, under obedience, and in an inferior position to) God the Father.
