Does God have a God?:

In John 20:17 we read:

"Jesus saith unto her, ...I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."

Not only is God Jesus' father, but He is also his GOD. Think about this carefully. Also notice how Jesus is equating between himself and mankind in these matters and not between himself and God. He is making it as clear as he possibly can that he is one of US and not a god. Why did he not just say "I ascend unto my Father, and your Father ." ... and stop !?

Why did Jesus feel it necessary to add the words "...and to my God, and your God." What additional information was he trying to convey to us with these extra words? Think about it carefully.

Please also read 2 Corinthians 11:31, Ephesians 1:3, Ephesians 1:17, and 1 Peter 1:3 for similar affirmations of Jesus having a God.

"Surly they have disbelieved who say: 'Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary.' But the Messiah said: 'O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.' Verily, whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah then Allah has forbidden Paradise upon him, and his abode is the Fire. And for the unjust there are no allys"
