It is not my purpose to force you to agree or believe with what’s on my websites, but rather to share my research. As the record goes: I'm Just a soul whose intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood. I do not write to share my research because I desire to be rich, famous, or powerful, but because investigating, studying, enquiring exploring, analysing and scrutinising, helps me learn what I don’t know. I simply love seeking, searching and researching, to discover the truth that is so rare, and become full of joy, uncovering the truth of our great GOD, and His Son’s hidden treasures, which has since caused me to become trapped in GOD’s divine love, who cannot turn back. I am Simon Brown. Amen.

Adverts are not owned by me Simon Brown. I am no longer a Trinitarian, and an independent researcher in no denomination.

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! Matthew 11:15.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
SON of God?
1 John 5:5.
NOT GOD OR A TRINITY, but as St john has said: but he that believeth that Jesus is the SON of God? 1 John 5:5.
And as Jesus has said: ETERNAL LIFE is believing His Father GOD is the only ONE TRUE GOD alone. John 17:3. Which is the FIRST commandment one MUST believe. Mark 12:29.

Trinitarians please read Hebrews 5:11-12. About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food.

False Prophets and Teachers

1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. 2 Peter 2:

And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD and said: “O LORD, the God of Israel, enthroned above the cherubim, you are THE God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth. 2 Kings 19:15.


Dear friends, just to remind you, as I am a human being, I am capable of making mistakes. If you believe I am wrong, don't let it go, but please be kind and let me know. Thank you.

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:21.

DID, Martha of Bethany, SAY, BELIEVE, or CALL Jesus GOD?

DID, Martha of Bethany, SAY, BELIEVE, or CALL Jesus GOD?


DID Martha of Bethany SAY Jesus is GOD?
DID Martha of Bethany BELIEVE Jesus was GOD?  
DID Martha of Bethany CALL Jesus GOD?  

Let’s find out, what Martha of Bethany, believed.  

GOD, or the SON of GOD? 

Let us first, acquaint ourselves, with this wonderful story of Martha, and her sister and brother, Lazarus of Bethany. 

At the end of the video, we will then examine, the simple Biblical facts, and see if Martha, of Bethany, CALLED Jesus GOD. 

Our study will be in John 11,1 to 45.  English Standard Version.

The Death of Lazarus.
1 Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 It was Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was ill. 3 So the sisters sent to him, saying, “Lord, he whom you love is ill.” 4 But when Jesus heard it he said, “This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”

5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6 So, when he heard that Lazarusa was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. 7 Then after this he said to the disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.” 8 The disciples said to him, “Rabbi, the Jews were just now seeking to stone you, and are you going there again?” 9 Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. 10 But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.” 11 After saying these things, he said to them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I go to awaken him.” 12 The disciples said to him, “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover.” 13 Now Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that he meant taking rest in sleep. 14 Then Jesus told them plainly, “Lazarus has died, 15 and for your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.” 16 So Thomas, called the Twin,b said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with him.”

I Am the Resurrection and the Life.
 17 Now when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days. 18 Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles off, 19 and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother. 20 So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary remained seated in the house. 21 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.dWhoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.”

Jesus Weeps.
28 When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying in private, “The Teacher is here and is calling for you.” 29 And when she heard it, she rose quickly and went to him. 30 Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha had met him. 31 When the Jews who were with her in the house, consoling her, saw Mary rise quickly and go out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there. 32 Now when Mary came to where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet, saying to him, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled. 34 And he said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus wept. 36So the Jews said, “See how he loved him!” 37 But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man also have kept this man from dying?”

Jesus Raises Lazarus.
38 Then Jesus, deeply moved again, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. 39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, “Lord, by this time there will be an odor, for he has been dead four days.” 40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?” 41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this on account of the people standing around, that they may believe that you sent me.” 43 When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.” 44 The man who had died came out, his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” 

Let us now examine, the simple, Biblical facts.  

Notice in verse 4: But when Jesus heard it he said, “This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”  

Biblical Fact 1. 

Jesus clearly DEFINES His Father as being GOD, alone, and goes on to clearly DESCRIBE Himself, by saying: so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” 
Notice there is nothing said by Jesus that He is GOD, but instead, Jesus clearly clarifies He is the Son of God.

We move on to verse 22:
Notice what Martha says to Jesus. But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.”

Biblical Fact 2.

We now have Martha, clearly DEFINING GOD the Father, as GOD alone, by saying to Jesus: whatever you ask from God, God will give you.”  
Martha’s statement, clearly agrees with what Jesus always taught, that His Father GOD, was working the miracles THROUGH His Son Jesus: 32 Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?”

 We now move on to the MAIN verse in John 11:27, where Jesus replies just before, with this well-known statement: Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.”  

Biblical Fact 3.

In one single statement, by Martha, we see and read her saying: “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God.

Notice, the Greek word for BELIEVE, in the Strong’s Concordance. 
Notice, the Greek word for BELIEVE, in the Strong’s Concordance.


Biblical Fact 4.

Martha, does NOT say: I believe you are God.
And Jesus does not say: You are wrong, I am GOD.
And Jesus does not say: You must believe, I am GOD.

Biblical Fact  5.

From the start to the end, of this wonderful story about Martha, and her sister, and brother Lazarus of Bethany, there is NOT a single inclination, or statement, or preference, that Martha, believed Jesus was GOD.

Biblical Fact  6.

There was also NO mention, whatsoever, by Jesus, that He was GOD. There was also NO mention, whatsoever, by Jesus, that Martha, was wrong.
But instead, Jesus, clearly DESCRIED Himself, as being: the Son of His GOD.

Biblical Fact  7.

BOTH, Jesus and  Martha, clearly DEFINE GOD, as being GOD, alone. 

But please hold on, as we are saving the best till last.  

Just before Jesus left with His disciples to meet Martha, and her brother Lazarus at Bethany, Jesus was accused, by the rebellious Jews, for blaspheming, because they believed Jesus was claiming to be GOD.

John 10:33: The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.” 
If the rebellious Jews were correct, that Jesus was claiming to be GOD, why didn’t Martha agree, and CALL Jesus GOD?

But instead Martha repeats an identical statement said by Jesus, by saying: you are the Christ, the Son of God.

Was Martha, present, when Jesus corrected the Jews, saying in John 10:36: do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?

Or did Martha, simply believe what Jesus only ever taught, right from the beginning, when Jesus said: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, John 3:16. 31.
Let's STOP right there, for a moment.

Notice GOD did not give Himself, which would be the case, if Jesus were already the SAME GOD, but INSTEAD, we read: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.   

DO YOU BELIEVE, WHAT Martha BELIEVED, THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF HIS GOD? John 11:27.

DO YOU BELIEVE, WHAT JESUS BELIEVED, THAT HE IS THE SON OF HIS GOD? John 10:36.

OR DO YOU BELIEVE, WHAT THE REBELLIOUS JEWS BELIEVED, THAT JESUS WAS CLAIMING TO BE THE GOD, HE CAME FROM?
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. John 3:17 -18.

St John said:  Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2:22-23. WHOEVER BELIEVES, JESUS IS GOD, THEY DENY, THE FATHER, AND THE SON.

There are NO teachings whatsoever teaching Jesus is His own Father GOD THROUGHOUT the Bible.

Whoever says and teachers Jesus is His own Father GOD, make BOTH GOD and His Son into LIARS, who BOTH clearly teach hundreds of times THROUGHOUT the Bible GOD is GOD ALONE, and Jesus is His literal Son.
Do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? John 10:36.

When we believe and teach that Jesus is GOD – when He only ever taught that He was the SON of THE ONE TRUE GOD – we are no better then the Jews, who accused Jesus for something He never claimed, which they RIGHTLY CALLED BLASPHEMY, but wrongly accused Him for BLASPHEMY.  ‘You are accusing Jesus of slander, because Jesus said, He IS the SON of GOD. John 10:36.
