Does the hymn of Colossians 1:15-20 equate Yeshua with the created figure of Wisdom, from Second Temple literature? Or, does this hymn decree some of the main differences between Yeshua and Wisdom?
There are many who try to say, with poor linguistic support. That “the Word was God” only means that Yeshua was supernatural, but not actually God. Why is this a false conclusion?
When the disciple Thomas declared “My Lord and my God,” was this really a declaration of Yeshua being God, or could it not be the ancient equivalent of “Oh my God!”?
