Even stronger is Paul’s statement in Romans 9:5, where Jesus is, in all probability, actually called “God.”^51 Similarly, Paul affirms Christ’s full deity in Colossians 2:9. While Schonfield clearly mistranslates this latter verse,^52 Cullmann, agreeing with virtually all scholars, renders the key phrase as “the whole fullness of deity dwelt bodily” in Jesus Christ.^53 As philologist A.T. Robertson points out, this verse indicates that all the fullness of the very essence of God dwells in Jesus in bodily form.^54 These two references, in particular, reveal Paul’s view of the full deity of Jesus.
