The thing is Donald is this that your taking this "oneness" out of context.
 The Jews were not saying that the sisters were the same person as them,
since that is what you would be implying with your using this to prove John
1:1 which is notorious for theological discusions about the Trinity.

The Jews were saying that they were from the same area and were still
living in the same area, not that they were the same person as them. That
would not fit the context.
