When you turn the page from the end of the Old Testament to the beginning of the New Testament, it can seem like you are entering a different world. In fact, some say that God changes as well. But is this really true?
While John 17:5 and other verses point to Christ’s deity, critics often highlight John 14:28, which reads, “The Father is greater than I.” Was Jesus a lesser God? Was he equal to the Father, or was he some sort of junior God, possessing the attributes of deity and yet somehow failing to match the total sketch of the divine that the Old Testament provides?
