Question 30 - Is the Lord equal to Christ or the greater than Christ?

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God. Phil 2:6.
My Father is greater than I.. John 14:28.
                The Lord Christ is equal to the Lord the Father. Roman 9:5, “Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God”, Titus 2:13, “Our great God and Savior Jesus Christ”. Hebrews 1:10, “You Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands”. I John 5:20, “His Son Jesus Christ is the true God and eternal life”. John 10:38.
                The Father is in Me, and I Him”. Refer John 12:11 and 17:21. Why did it happen to say in John 14:28 that My Father is greater than I, instead of saying that the Lord God is equal to His Son Christ?
                Matthew 23:12, “And whoever exalts himself will be abased, and he who humbles himself will be exalted”. According to this verse it is a good quality to a Son to adore the Father.
                Matthew 11:11, “Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not raisen one greater than John the Baptist”. In this way, the Lord Christ exalts the John the Baptist and humbles Himself.  Likewise, Matthew3:11, “He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry”. In this way, John the Baptist exalts the Lord Christ and humble himself.
                So, the Lord Christ taught in His teachings, said in Mark 10:43-44, “Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all”.
                This is the prior quality among the qualities of good man.
