Christ claimed, not to be God, but to be the Son of God.

In the case of Christ the one does not exclude the other. St. John admits personal distinction when he says, “The Word was with God,” yet asserts identity in the divine nature when he adds, “And the Word was God.” Jn. I., 1. Christ showed the co-equality of the three Divine Persons in the one single Divine Nature when He ordered the Apostles to baptize in the one name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Matt XXVIII., 19. And He proclaimed His own identity in the Divine Nature with the Father by His words to Philip, who had requested, “Lord, show us the Father.” “Philip,” replied Christ, “have you not known Me? He that seeth Me seeth the Father also.”
