One assertion brought by Tovia Singer, the owner of Outreach Judaism as well as Gomerozdubar, a muslim on Paltalk, who is often seen engaging with Christians, is the question of, "How can the Messiah be God when he fears God?"
I had said I would answer this objection to Gomer, although instead of a video, I shall address the point he raised here.
Let us read Isaiah 11:1-3
"11 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and of might,
the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—
3 and he will delight in the fear of the Lord."
Firstly, it is important to define the doctrine of the Trinity before we start, It teaches that there is One Eternal God, YHWH or Ha Shem as Rabbinic Jews will call him. Ha Shem means "The Name". The Trinity states there is one God, absolute MONOTHEISM. It also teaches that this one God, exists as 3 distinct persons, Person in the sense of being able to think, reason, plan, interact and speak. The Father is not the Son, the Son is not the Spirit and the Spirit is not the Father. One Being in Three Persons. If you think being and person are the same thing, that means you and I are the same person, so I wouldn't go there if I were you.
Second, We need to define what it means to fear the LORD. What does a good God-fearing Jew do? He does what God tells him to do. In the same way, Jesus did what the Father requests of him, which can be found in John 5:19-30
"19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed. 21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. 22 Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, 23 that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.
24 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. 25 Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.
28 “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29 and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned. 30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me."
Again, one who fears the LORD, does what he says, in fact that is what Solomon in Ecclesiastes tells us:
"13 Now all has been heard;
here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
for this is the duty of all mankind.
14 For God will bring every deed into judgment,
including every hidden thing,
whether it is good or evil."
The Messiah, himself deity, only does ONLY the what Father wills, hence not only his claim to deity is there, which no man can claim, he also claims to do what the Father says perfectly. Fearing the Lord leads one to keeping his commandments. We are not perfect, only Christ is and by his grace, not works, we can be redeemed.
Hope this answers the objection
