 Post subject: Who is Jesus?
PostPosted: Mon Oct 22, 2012 4:43 am 
I have some questions about who the Watchtower (WT) believes Jesus Christ is. I had a co-worker who was a Jehovah's Witness (JW) and we met for several months to discuss the Watchtower beliefs. I tried to understand what she was telling me but she couldn't answer these basic questions I have, so can someone shed light on this who is a Jehovah's Witness.

My co-worker said (and the WT literature says) that Jehovah is Almighty God

My co-worker said (and WT literature also says) Jesus is:
1. Michael the Archangel
2. Mighty God (as specified in Isaiah 9:6)
3. "a god", as specified in John 1:1 in the New World Translation

Questions:
1. Is an archangel also Mighty God or "a god"? Can an archangel be Mighty God or "a god"?
2. What is the difference between Mighty God and "a god" or are they the same, especially since Jesus is considered both?
3. Does the WT practice Polytheism since they believe Jehovah is Almighty God and Jesus is Mighty God (as well as "a god), especially since according to the WT, Jehovah and Jesus are not the same God?
4. Since, John 17:3, Deut 4:35, Deut 32:39, Isaiah 44:6-8 and Isaiah 45:5 state that their is only one true God who is Jehovah, is Jesus then a false God/god? How can Jesus be Mighty God and "a god"?
5. Who really then is Jesus in WT belief?

I'm confused!!!

Berean, I strongly recomend that you ask for a free home bible study the next time the brothers call.

Goodluck, problem solved :fairy:

" This means everlasting life knowing you the true God and the one you sent forth Jesus Christ ."

To know Jehovah ...to know the true God is essential for life , otherwise you won't know who Jesus is reconciling you to , and you won't know the new covenant Jesus mediates is about the promise of Jehovah becoming our God and we his people .

Religion just confuses people .

No we do not believe in polytheism.
There are obviously many gods but just one Almighty God YHWH / Jehovah.
Jesus is described as a mighty one second in power only to Jehovah himself.
It's very simple. No need to confuse things with bad research or fuzzy 'logic'. :fairy:

Palestine , is a name given by the Roman Emperor, Hadrian ..to the nation of Israel ...

Jesus Christ is the only name given to men under heaven for salvation

It is written

" Everyone believing Jesus is the Christ has been born from God ."

It doesn't say " anyone believing Jesus is just one of the Christs has been born from God..."

It may be written in your New World Translation but not by Rabbi Jesus.
