Lord Jesus is the God of the Bible (John 1:1-3),
- The one Lord and the Lord of all. Rom 10:12 says, “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.” Cf. Acts 10:36)
- He is the savior of the World (John 4:42)

“Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.” Deuteronomy 4:39
The plurality of Gods doctrine contradicts this fundamental biblical teaching. Please note that the King James Version (used here) designates the Hebrew name Yahweh with “LORD” spelled with all letters capitalized; Adonai, meaning “Lord” or “Master,” is designated by “Lord;” and “Elohim,” is translated as “God.” Thus, in Deut. 4:35, for example, the phrase “the LORD he is God,” would be literally translated, “Yahweh, he is Elohim.” (In those instances Adonai is used as a compound with Yahweh, the latter term is spelled “GOD”, so that the compound name “Lord GOD” designates the Hebrew, “Adonai Yahweh”).
