Then Peter said, ‘Look at us!’ So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them. Jesus is unique, then, not in principle but only �so far as we know.�30 But the most interesting statement along these lines is made by Schubert Ogden: The New Testament sense of the claim "only in Jesus Christ" is not that God is only to be found in Jesus and nowhere else, but that the only God who is to be found anywhere - though he is to be found everywhere - is the God who is made known in the word that Jesus speaks to us. 31 Is it really very difficult to surmise that the assertions �Jesus is the only way to God� and �There are many ways to God besides Jesus� intend to exclude one another?

" The natural assumption is that the Ebionites simply deleted the text that they disagreed with. Now, however, with the full triumph of the Gospel of the true Trinity over the false Gospel of the counterfeit trinity, Christ is no longer subordinated to the Father (suggestions shared in personal conversations, to be published in a forthcoming commentary). "This vision of the co-regency of the Father and the Son is the final piece of compelling evidence for Christ's full deity.
