New International Version

To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.

New Living Translation

Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.

English Standard Version

The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.

From what I can gather, there are two thrones spoken of here. How do modalist sects explain this verse?

  • Where does it say there are two thrones? Only one throne is mentioned. – Lee Woofenden Jan 28 '16 at 0:27

    @LeeWoofenden "my throne" + "his throne" = two thrones, not "our throne" = one throne. At least the possibibility of more than one throne is grammatically suggested. – user900 Jan 28 '16 at 0:32

    "Unitarian" generally refers to a belief system where only the Father is considered God. The word you're looking for could be "modalist," though this is often not a self-applied label. Perhaps "non-trinitarian" would do the trick. – Mr. Bultitude Feb 12 '16 at 21:53

    "Moralistic" really does not make sense here! – curiousdannii Aug 14 '16 at 15:05
