Anti-Trinitarian mocks Jesus’ submission to the Father

Anti-Trinitarian mocks Jesus’ submission to the Father:“In John 14:28, Jesus said that the Father is greater than Him. Is Jesus the Father too? If He is, then how may Fathers are there?”Christian response, Jesus is not the Father and the Father is not Jesus or the Spirit yet these Three are One-God in essence. Within the Trinity there is an agreed upon delineation of authority which models federal headship in the Biblical family unit and models our submission to legitimate government authorities and most importantly, our submission to God’s authority.

Jesus is both fully God and fully man through the hypostatic union (Philippians 2:8) and Jesus IS our role model as to how we are to honor the Father. Jesus was tempted in all ways just as we but without sin (Hebrews 4:15) and Jesus did not expect anything of us that He Himself was not willing to confront and conquer. Don’t misunderstand Messiah’s words and always interpret Messiah’s discourse from the perspective of His humanity and/or His deity which is determined by the context. Throughout the Scriptures, from Elohim forward (Genesis 1:1), the Trinity has worked together with intimacy and order and structure to “destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b) and conquer death, Hell and the grave for all who love God and trust in the work of Messiah upon the Cross for the atonement of sin.
