Words Mean Things, Punctuation Matters

A Friend Shines New Light on an Old Mystery

Jesus, from the Mural at Staunton Alliance Church.

"Since I have been at SEBTS studying theology for 6 years now I have been looking for an explicit statement about Christ being G-d. There have been those like John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with G-d, and the Word was G-d.” Or, Col 2:9: “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form…”

But none of them used the words “Christ” And “G-d” in the same sentence. Well I found one: Romans 9:5 ESV translates this well. Here it is in the Greek and my own translation." -- Danny Achten
