Question: How do you explain what Scripture says in in 1 Corinthians 11:3? 'Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.' Also, who was God speaking to in Genesis when He said, 'Come, let us...' And who was Jesus praying to every time He went off by Himself to pray...and when He said 'Father forgive them for they know not what they do?' And who was God speaking to when in the time of the tower of Babel God scattered the people? Kathie

Answer: When the Bible speaks of Christ in 1 Cornithians 11:3, it is speaking of the Man, Christ Jesus (see 1 Timothy 2:5 as an example). This Man was 'God manifested in the flesh' (1 Timothy 3:16). Yet at all times the God who was manifested was the head over the manifestation; that is, God was the head of the flesh, the Man. The Man acknowledged this reality when He said, 'My Father is greater than I' (John 14:28). This also explains why the Man Christ Jesus prayed and spoke to the One He called His Father. The Father (who is Spirit) was the head of the Son (who was humanity). Yet simulaneously the Son was the Father manifested in the flesh. Therefore, the Son could say, 'He who has seen Me has seen the Father...' (John 14:9).

When God said, 'Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language...' in Genesis 11:7, He was speaking to the holy angels.
