The scriptures tell us that Jesus sits on the right hand of God. There have been many interpretations as to what the right hand of God refers to.

If it is literal, does this mean that God has a physical right hand and that Jesus is separate from God because he is standing on the right hand of God? It is easy to get into a false understanding of God by misinterpreting this phrase.
