Chapter 1:

The Fullness of the Divine Nature

Colossians 2:9

Great is the mystery of God! Paul, in his writings, shows us that the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ clarify the mystery of God.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; He who was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the spirit, Seen of angels, Preached among the nations, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. 1 Tim 3:16 (ASV)

Christ came to provide salvation to the world and reveal the true and living God. Christ came as an obedient Son to make known the Father’s counsel, wisdom, and might.

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. John 17:3 (KJV)

Jesus expressed in His prayer to the Father the purpose of His coming – to make known unto men the only true God, which is the Father, and that they would know Christ, whose coming was from the Father; intending to free men from the bondage of sin. Both Testaments agree that all things are done by the will of the Father. Biblical accounts reveal the character and nature of God.

With these things in view, let us look more closely at godhead. Some scholars and ministers try to explain Godhead by implying that it refers to God being revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; that is, the Trinity. However, godhead has nothing to do with the makeup of God, or His work in Jesus Christ by the Holy Ghost. It simply refers to His divine nature.

In the King James Version of the Bible, the term godhead is used three times by Paul. In these instances where we find the word godhead, each is derived from three Greek variations (theiotēs, theios, and theotēs) of the same word - theos. This term simply means divinity or godlike. Godhead refers specifically to the nature of God or that which characterizes who He is.

In understanding the meaning of godhead and examining how Paul used this term, we can develop a solid understanding of the Godhead.

The Divine Nature is Distinctive

Extensive travelling and evangelizing characterized Paul’s ministry. After preaching the gospel in Berea, Paul went to Athens. While waiting for others to come, he was stirred in his spirit because of the rampant idolatry. He saw an altar built to the unknown god. He used this as a catalyst to present the only true and living God. It was in this discourse that he used the term godhead.

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. Acts 17:29 (KJV)
