The two points articulated by the Nicene Fathers were that Jesus is Eternal with God and the same essence as God. The Arians said “there once was when he was not.” They argued: 1. John 3:16 says Jesus was begotten. 2. They translated Colossians 1:15 to say Jesus was the firstborn of all creation 3. if Jesus is the wisdom of God, and the Greek version of Proverbs 8 says that wisdom was createdthen Jesus must be created. The Nicene Fathers also maintained that Jesus is the same essence as God.
