The Implications of Jesus Being Given All Authority
As everyone knows, God is independent. He is the source of all power and authority. It is not given to Him, it is He who gives it to whom he pleases.
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Here we see that all authority has been GIVEN to Jesus. How can Jesus be God if he was GIVEN this authority? So before Jesus was GIVEN this authority, what was he? He was a no body, that's what. What kind of God was he before he was GIVEN all this authority? If Jesus is co equal with the Father then who gave the Father this authority? Plus why would Jesus need the Father to give him the authority? Couldn't the godly nature of Jesus given it to his man nature?
Jesus also goes on to say...
You heard me say, 'I am going away and I am coming back to you.' If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
Jesus clearly said that the Father is greater than him. However, Christians will argue back that this means that the Father is greater than Jesus in authority but not in essence.
Let us assume for a second that this is true even though it is not as clearly shown in this article.
This contradicts Matthew 28:18 where Jesus said that ALL authority in heaven and earth has been GIVEN to him. Now how could the Father be greater than Jesus in authority if Jesus had ALL authority? If the Father is greater than Jesus in authority then that means that Jesus was not really given ALL authority and that statement of Matthew 28:18 is false.
These are implications that cannot be explained or make sense.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross. I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken. My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion. I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
