The Divine Council

As Christians, we are monotheists—that is to say that we believe that there is only one God and He has created all things both physical and spiritual. However, there’s a disconnect between the way we understand monotheism today and the way the Bible understood monotheism. For us today, it means that God is the only spiritual being with power and authority in existence. For the Bible writers of both the Old and New Testament, while God is the one and only God, He has distributed power and authority to other spiritual beings He created. These beings we know throughout the Bible as the false little-g-gods. While they are not anywhere near close to God because there is only one God, they are also not nothing. And that’s the theme we dig into much more deeply in this podcast episode.
