“You assertion concerning authority conveniently left out the import word “all” - there is no limitation anywhere of the authority of Christ - “heaven and earth”.”
the bible clearly teaches that the “primary” commanding power and authority belonging to the father is greater than the composite (fully son and fully god) which you worship.
“the father is greater than i”
“i by my ownself cannot do anything”
the father is NEVER said to NEED the son to do anything, he seems to be the “daddy” or “driver” behind everything.
this is why i said that the “commanding authority” which seem to be an INTERNAL power which brings into existence, which informs and COMMANDS jesus (i am COMMANDED what to say…) is the daddy here.
