Answering Gospel Of John 1:1 – Part 1

Does John 1:1 prove Trinity?

SOURCE : http://answering-christianity.com/john1_1.htm

Before we start, I’d like to bring to the reader’s attention this article:

The “God” title in the Bible was given to others in the OT and NT. Answering Isaiah 9:6. The “El” (God) title that was given to Jesus in the Old Testament, and the “HOTHEOS” (God) title in the New Testament, were given to others before and after Jesus in the Bible itself.

Having said that, let us now continue with the article:

Let us look at John 1:1 “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God.” This is often presented from the Gospel of John to prove that Jesus was God. There are however several problems with this claim: By this verse it is assumed that Jesus was the “word” and since the word was God and became flesh, Jesus is God. The statement that John reproduced in his gospel however was uttered not by John but by A Philo of Alexandria, years before Jesus or John were born. It is therefore completely unlikely that Philo was even remotely referring to Jesus.

There is also another reason for not capitalizing the “G” in John 1:1, considering the Greek of the above verse which disproves the assertion that Jesus is referred to as God in the verse. In the verse above, the first time the word God is used, the Greek is “TON THEON”, which means “a god”. However, the stronger Greek word “HO THEOS” or “O THEOS” which means “Divine God” was used for satan in 2 Corinthians 4:4. The NIV Bible Author wrote “god” for Satan instead of “God”, which the word itself literally means The God. The second time the word God is used,”….and the word was God,” the word for God is also TON THEON, which also means “a god”.


Europeans have evolved a system of capital and small letters non-existent in Greek. The God, HOTHEOS is translated as God with a capital G, whereas Tontheos, which means A or ANY God is translated with a small g, god. In this case however, we see the unlawful translators trying to prove Jesus being God by putting capital G for both whereas it doesn’t belong in the case of the “word”.

And like I said above:

The “God” title in the Bible was given to others in the OT and NT. Answering Isaiah 9:6. The “El” (God) title that was given to Jesus in the Old Testament, and the “HOTHEOS” (God) title in the New Testament, were given to others before and after Jesus in the Bible itself.

So can we trust the current English Translations? Given that facts above about verse John 1:1, how can we expect from an ordinary English speaking Christian who wants to spread his religion with all his heart honestly and faithfully to understand this lie of capitalizing the small “g” in John 1:1 and other verses, and not capitalizing the the MANY “g”s in the same exact words used for Jesus throughout the Old and New Testaments? Must we allow our faith to be all based on what other authors decide to insert from their own personal views into the Bible?

“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of

theLORD iswith us’? But, behold, the false pen

of the scribes has made it into a lie.

(RSVBible,Jeremiah 8:8)”
