I have written several times on the doctrine of the Oneness of God and I want to do so again today.  It is essential to understand the nature and Godhead for Romans 1 states...

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

The Amplified Version reads like this...

20 For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification], [Ps. 19: 1-4.]

Easton's Bible Dictionary defines the word Godhead as the essential being or the nature of God.

John the 1st chapter opens up with a very matter of fact statement...

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

We must understand the nature of God or the Godhead.  This scripture reveals to us the eternal nature of God and that He is the creator.  John writes more on who the Word is in the 14th verse...

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

This scripture is confirmed by Paul writing in 1 Timothy 3...

16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The scripture is filled with confirmations that Jesus is God.  His nature is one and the doctrine is monotheism starting with Deuteronomy 6...

4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
