Question: Is there a verse in Scriptures where it says that the Father was manifest in flesh? I recall a verse saying that God was manifest in flesh, and this is in agreement also with Philippians 2:5, where Jesus was in the form of God..but did not cosider it robbery to be equal with God, but took the form of men.

Answer: 1 Timothy 3:16 says, 'And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh.' 1 Corinthians 8:4 says that there is 'no other God but one.' Verse 6 goes on to say, 'For us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.' This passage proves that the God who was manifested was the Father and the human manifestation was the Lord Jesus Christ.
