In the beginning was the Word. John 1:1 - Misunderstood bible verses

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1 RSV
Christians use this verse to show that Jesus is God and coeternal with God the Father, but it doesn’t.

It first states there was one entity called ‘the word’, this entity ‘the word’ was with the other entity ‘God’. Then it states ‘the word’ was god. So according to this verse we have One entity ‘God’ and the other entity ‘the word’ that is also God. So now we have two gods.
In the remainder of the gospel and 1 John “the word” means the revelation of God rather than an entity. 447
It is very similar to Egyptian mythology where a member in their trinity called “Horus” was called “the word” 87 and was coequal to God. Horus was also known as the word that became flesh (John 1:14). 448

“My Lord and my God!” John 20:28

If you had a near fatal car accident, and came out with wounds and your friend saw you and exclaimed loud “My Lord and my God!” because of his amazement that you made it out safely, it doesn’t mean he is referring to you as God but was shouting to the real God in his amazement of saving your life from a near fatal accident.

Biblical scholars are coming to the conclusions that this verse is a total fabrication. 81 The section Jesus was not crucified’ is sufficient proof that Jesus was not nailed to the cross.

“No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son” John 1:18

“No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.”  John 1:18 NIV

The above verse taken from the NIV is not accurate. If you look at RSV and many other translations you will see “who is himself God” has been taken out, this would imply that part was a forgery.

“No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known.” John 1:18 RSV
The verse now does not imply that Jesus is God but is implying that Jesus has made Him known by His words and miracles (John 14:24, Luke 11:20 etc.).

“And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.” Exodus 33:20 KJV


Misconception that Jesus is God because he had no earthly father

If Jesus is God because he had no earthly father, then Adam was a greater ‘god’ because he had no earthly father and mother.

According to the book of Hebrews Melchiz′edek has attributes of a god also:
For this Melchiz′edek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him;” Hebrews 7:1 RSV
He is without father or mother or genealogy, and has neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God he continues a priest for ever.” Hebrews 7:3 RSV
