Shalom! The question that Yeshua/Christ asked, "Whom do they say that I am?" (Matthew 16:17) is still asked today; the answer is still "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God."

In John 14:9, Yeshua is often misquoted as, "If you have seen Me, you have seen God." The actual scripture is, "If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father" as working through Him.

John 1:1 lists Yeshua as God, but not God/Elohim, as God describes Himself in Exodus 20:5 ("the Lord, thy God"). Strongs lists God in John 1:1 as thresheia (trace-Ku'-ah), a ceremonial observance, a religion, worshipping, as evolved from threskos (thrace-hos), ceremonious in worship/demonstration.

Isaiah 9:6 refers to the coming King/Messiah as Everlasting Father/Avi (patrimony/principal). Sterns Complete Jewish Bible translation gives this text Avi-Ad Sar Shalom (Wonder of a Counselor, etc.). The "Mighty God/El Gibbor" interpretation is anegkletos (an-eng'-klay-tos), meaning unaccused, blameless, irreproachable.

Scripturally, there is one God, Elohim, and one "only begotten Son," Savior/King of our hearts/lives. Some have described the God/Christ relationship as God the Father (company president) and His Son Yeshua (Head CEO), to which enterprise we are all called to work as Heirs in "the family business" through the empowerment of His Holy Spirit.

Considering then having "circumcised our hearts, not our flesh" (Romans 2:29), how do we consider ourselves spiritually (Catholic, Christian or Jew)?

Jews who have received Yeshua consider themselves Completed Jews, not Christians. We who are not ethnic Jews, but follow as disciples of a Jewish Lord, would not say we are Christian, but are spiritual "Jews," grafted in as part of Israel.

Let us walk unjudgmentally in the unity/love of Yeshua so the world will know Yeshua is from God (John 17).

Shalom!
