Why Jesus is not God:

30I and the Father are one."

31Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him, 32but Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?"

33"We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."

34Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods'? 35If he called them 'gods,' to whom the word of God came—and the Scripture cannot be broken— (John 10: 30-34)

The verse in which Jesus was referring to was this one:

6 "I said, 'You are "gods";
you are all sons of the Most High.' (Psalm 82:6)

This verse refers to Judges who teach God divine law as gods. This title is given to those who teach God's divine law and not because he is God himself. In Exodus 7:1 Moses is called a god because he was God's spokesperson to Pharaoh and not God himself.

Then the LORD said to Moses, "See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet. (Exodus 7:1)

Only One God:

"This is what the LORD says—
Israel's King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last;
apart from me there is no God.
(Isaiah 44:6)

In this verse you can clearly see what God is trying to say. God says that he is the first meaning that he has no Father and he is the last meaning he has no son and there is no other God apart from him.

20 "There is no one like you, O LORD, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears. (1 Chronicles 17: 20)

39 "See now that I myself am He!
There is no god besides me. (Deuteronomy 32: 39)

9 Remember the former things, those of long ago;
I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me. (Isaiah 46:9)

What more proof do you need?
