Holtz on Jn 8:28
Atheist Brian Holtz quotes Jn 8:28, but not fully, so that the message can be misleading. The entire verse says, "So when Jesus said, When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I AM and that I do nothing own my own but speak just what the Father has taught me." Jesus can be referring to His human nature (Jesus has two natures and thus two intellects) or the Father's eternal generation of Him while at the same time claiming to be Yahweh and affirming the harmony between the persons of the Trinity.
