Who is the one lord in 1 Corinthians 8:6?
1 Corinthians 8:6 (NASB)
"Yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things
and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all
things, and we exist through Him."
The first part of the verse: "Yet for us, there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him." it is a reiteration of some verses in the OT.
Deuteronomy 6:4 (NASB) “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord
Isaiah 43:10-11 (ASV)
10 Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and my servant whom I have
chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he:
before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11
I, even I, am Jehovah; and besides me there is no savior.
Isaiah 45:6 (ASV)
6 "That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west,
that there is none besides me: I am Jehovah, and there is none else."
For the second part of the verse:"and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him." An from the NT we notice that Jesus is different from God and is subject to him.
1 Corinthians 11:3 (NASB)
3 "But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man,
and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ."
1 Timothy 2:5 (NASB)
5 "For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the
man Christ Jesus,"
Matthew 4:10 (NASB)
10 "Then Jesus *said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall
worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.’”
Philippians 2:9-11 (NASB)
9 "For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him
the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus
every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under
the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is
Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The OT clearly Identifies Jehovah as God the Father, notice also that in Philippians 2:9-11 the scriptures make it very clear that Jesus and his Father are distinct individuals and that God exalted him to a higher position after his resurrection and is subject to the Father.
We have two distinct individuals
1/ Lord God the Father
2/ Lord Jesus Christ the begotten Son of God.
