1 Timothy 1:17 – The King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, The One Wise God
“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the one wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen
(1 Timothy 1:17).
Some try to argue that this passage references Jesus as God. It does not. Jesus was not invisible, he was seen by thousands. He is however “king of kings” (Revelation 19:16) and “prince of the kings of the earth” (Revelation 1:5), but his God and Father is “the king of heaven” (Daniel 4:37; Psalm 48:2; Matthew 5:35; Luke 10:21; Acts 17:24). Paul makes it clear at the beginning of his letter acknowledging both God and Jesus (1 Timothy 1:1-2)
