This is a scripture that should really jolt any true critical thinker wide awake if he or she is interested.Acts 3:13 says:
“The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers,
has glorified his servant Jesus.”
Okay, first note how the “God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers” is distinguished from Yeshua as a separate being, succintly and irrefutably. Next, a serious question that must be answered: If the “God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers” is a triune homoousios, how can He “glorify his servant Jesus” if Yeshua is that same
“God of Abraham?”
Yes, Acts 3:13 proves with zero doubt who the God of Deuteronomy 6:4 really is! If that God is supposed to be a trinity, then one would have to say “the trinity glorified his servant Jesus.” I can hear the trinitarians now telling me that sometimes that One God is identified as just the Father, and I would agree in a more consistent manner, but I think it’s preposterous and desperate to make up whoever you want him to be at any given time to suit your own presuppositions and desires. If you’re going to say it’s just the Father in Acts 3:13, then you should be consistent with that. Where’s the holy spirit here? Is the “God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers” one, two, or three persons in Acts 3:13, and why would it ever be okay to be inconsistent with that interpretation? As a trinitarian, how comfortable are you saying that the One God of our fathers from Deuteronomy 6:4 glorified his “servant” Yeshua? What common sense impression should be gathered from such a statement?
