There are several statements in the New Testament which flatly contradict the Trinitarian claim that Jesus was “co-equal” and “co-eternal” with the Father. Scripture indicates that God performed all of Jesus’ miracles through Him. Jesus had no inherent power or “divine nature” as the source of His miracles. He stated plainly that He was powerless to perform even one thing. He also stated that His Apostles would do the same and more miracles once the Spirit of God came upon them.
Yet, at the same time Jesus made statements that indicate He was God’s literal (begotten) Son, which necessarily meant that He would have inherited the divine nature by procreation, something the Jews understood from His claim that God was His “own” Father. The solution to this mystery was first given by Paul in Phil. 2:6-11 but was also indicated by John’s Gospel in the statement, “and Logos became flesh and tabernacled among us.”
