    3rd. He is called God. It has been shown that the term Son of God is expressive of his highest nature. Now, that the Son should be called by the Father’s name is not at all unreasonable. By reference to Psalm 82; also, Exodus 7:1; 22:28; John 10:34, 35, you will find this term applied to mortal men. Moreover the Son of God in this character calls his father God. Hebrews 1:9; John 20:17; Revelation 3:12. And in this character, as has been shown, he was begotten and died.ATO 189.14

    4th. I will consider a few of those passages of scripture which are so frequently, and confidently quoted to prove that Jesus Christ in his essential nature, is the very and eternal God. In. Colossians 2:9, we are told, that in Jesus Christ “dwelleth all the fullnss of the Godhead bodily.” But a few verses before this, the same Apostle tells us, “it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell.” Chap. 1:19. This same Apostle represents even the saints as being “filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:19.ATO 190.1

    Again in Colossians 1:15. “Who is the image of the invisible God.” The last clause of the same verse says of this very being that he is “the first born of every creature.” Also Philippians 2:6. “Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.” The two verses following declare that this very personage became man and died. “I have power to lay it (my life) down, and I have power to take it again.” John 10:18. This is considered one of the strongest proof texts; and yet our Saviour confesses in the very next words he utters: “This commandment have I received of my Father.” I will submit this subject to the investigation of the candid reader, by quoting one more proof text. Revelation 1:8. “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” By reference to verses 17, 18, of this chapter, we may learn that this identical being was dead. “I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth and was dead; and behold I am alive forevermore. Amen.”ATO 190.2
