Question
I Timothy 2:5 There is ONE God and Mediator the man Jesus Christ.
What does this tell you? Who is the ONE God here?
JESUS Christ is the ONE GOD AND MEDIATOR.
John 17:3 is a favorite of Jws. That they might know Thee the only true God and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent. Who is God Here?
The name Father is not mentioned here at all only Jesus is mentioned here. The Father (AND) Jesus are the true God here. The ONLY TRUE GOD (AND)JESUS CHRIST.  There is no period there so you include Jesus as true GOD.

Answer
Aren't you a bit stretching here Hugh or Timothy?

I mean, come on, if you need to quote the scriptures, at least be accurate.

You quoted

I Timothy 2:5 "There is ONE God and Mediator the man Jesus Christ."

But really, it reads this way:

NWT:

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus," (1 Timothy 2:5)

See the difference between what you said and the New World Translation Of the Holy Scriptures?

You can't be more WRONG!

If you still can't see it, let me put them side by side:

YOURS >>I Timothy 2:5 "There is ONE God and Mediator the man Jesus Christ."
NWT >> "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus," (1 Timothy 2:5)

Who is telling the TRUTH here, really who is the ONE True God and the one MEDIATOR between God and man?

Answer: Jesus Christ is the one mediator between the ONE True God (Jehovah) and man (mankind).


Here's how the other translations put it:

===========
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;


NKJV   
For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,


NLT   
For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus.


NIV   
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,


ESV   
For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the manfn Christ Jesus,

HCSB   

For there is one God

and one mediator between God and humanity,

Christ Jesus, Himself human,


NASB   
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,


RSV   
For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,


ASV   
For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, himself man, Christ Jesus,

YLT   
for one is God, one also is mediator of God and of men, the man Christ Jesus,


DBY   
For God is one, and the mediator of God and men one, the man Christ Jesus,

WEB   
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;


HNV       
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Messiah Yeshua,

Case close.

YOUR Version>> John 17:3 "That they might know Thee the only true God and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent".

NWT >> “. . .This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” (John 17:3)

So is the one sent the same as the SENDER?

Really, "The Father (AND) Jesus are the true God here"?

You mean there ARE now TWO TRUE God?

Instead of only one?

Sorry, but Hugh, you're way off base.

Better go back and ask for a refund from those teaching you, because they are clueless.


Just a thought:

“For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the wholesome teaching, but according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled. 4 They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
