How do trinitarians explain Luke 4:8, where Jesus responded to Satan's question his request to worship him:
Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
If Jesus was God himself, how did he worship another god? And for that reason he didn't worship Satan!
I mean if Jesus is a god he should say that I'm a god myself and with this reason I don't worship you (Satan). But instead he said 'for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.' . if he's a god why did he worship another god?
I have searched and people said here that Jesus is a God in the flesh! referring to this:
John 1:1-18 (NIV) -Excerpt
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
He also says 'Jesus never did His own will but the will of the Father.' referring to these:
Matthew 12:50 (NIV) For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
John 16:28 (NIV) I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.”
Mark 16:19 (NIV) After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.
1 Timothy 2:5 (NIV) For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,
Romans 8:34 (NIV) Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
If he's God himself, why would he serve another god and do his jobs? I mean all of our acts have reasons. We eat food because our body needs food and we worship god because we need god. So why would Jesus want to serve God? Did he need his love? If he was a god why did he need another god's love?
