The Father works through Yeshua

While orthodox Christianity claims that Jesus is God, I have come to a different conclusion in the past several years. Most of this change in my perspective is due to the many times in the gospel narratives that Yeshua distinguishes himself from his Father.

One of the most clear distinctions Yeshua makes is in John 14:10:

“Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.”

While most Christians tend to focus on the first sentence in this verse about Yeshua saying “I am in the Father and the Father [is] in me”, they tend to overlook the second two phrases where Yeshua clearly says that the words that he is speaking are not his own, and that the Father dwelling in him is the One who is responsible for the works that he is doing.

Therefore, Yeshua being “in” the Father and the Father being “in” Yeshua (that is dwelling in him) must mean that there is such a unity in purpose between both Yeshua and the Father that Yeshua has then become a vehicle or agent for the Father to work through.
