      The statment “I and My Farther are One” is referring to the Trinity. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit together are one. I respond to this claim with gladness and joy because that is washes away my sins.

      The term “I and my father are one” is Christ’s claim to being the Messiah. How do I respond? With gladness and total acceptance. While the idea of a triune God is difficult for us to fathom, the Holy Spirit that serves as the unique bond of God to man and man to God is so evident, it is completely embodied in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus’s spirit was the Holy Spirit. He is in all ways God and his tie to the Father is undeniable.

      In John 10:27-31, Jesus makes the statement, “I and My Father are One”. In this statement He is pointing to equal gifting within the Holy Trinity. I respond to this claiming by knowing that it is truth.

      Jesus is referring to the Holy Trinity. He, His Father and the Holy Spirit are of the same mind, idea and word. I like to think of it like an egg, there are 3 parts. The shell, the yoke and the white. They can be separated and each has its name and own flavor or texture, but together they make up 1 object.

      Jesus is referring to the Holy Trinity. Himself, God and the Holy Spirit are one and the same. Jesus was at the beginning of creation with God.

      This statement of “I and My Father are One “Jesus proclaimed himself is God because came on the earth to reveal God in him.

      We cannot fully understand the truth that Jesus and God are one in the same yet different. However, I believe that they are and that when it says we as sheep know His voice, we know both God and Jesus and they both keep me as promised.

      In my belief Jesus meant that he and God are one. Meaning Jesus is part of the Holy Trinity, the son who was and is God. I am happy to know that God came down and took on human flesh, died and was resurrected for me. This is an awesome thing, which means because of Jesus I will have everlasting life and be with my creator

      Jesus portrays himself as the Good Shepherd, equal with the Father who is greater than all. He claims to be God, not just a good moral teacher. He leaves no room for question… you either believe in His claim to be God or you believe that he is a liar and a lunatic.

      Jesus said that we sheep hear His voice and no one will snatch us out of His hands as the same can be said of the Fathers’ hands as “I and My Father are One”.

      In order for Jesus to be who he says he was he had to be one with the father. If he was with God in the beginning and the Word was God then he would be the same

      Jesus said “no one will snatch them out of my hand.” And then said “no one is able to snatch them of the Father’s hand” these two statements demonstrate that Jesus is God. Otherwise He could not claim the same thing about His hand and the Father’s hand.
