The habitual misreading of John 1 and the ‘Word being God’ #2

John very well knew that the promised breaker of the curse of death or the one to bring salvation from death was Jeshua, the Kristos or Christ, Messiah, the prophet and master teacher he had seen and followed and believed in, like we should also believe in that son of God the sent one from God.

“but when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,” (Galatians 4:4 ASV)

Look very carefully at the word of John 1:1–2 which speak about the beginning of times and Moses tells us about a Voice speaking in the void, which resulted in words spoken by the Most High Elohim, Jehovah the God of gods. The text Trinitarians always love to quote to proof Jesus would be God, says

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God”

The famous Greek word logos — “word, speech, a...

The famous Greek word logos — “word, speech, argument, ratio, etc.” Deutsch: Das berühmte griechische Wort logos — „Wort, Rede, Argument, Berechnung usw.“ (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

implicating that it was a word or logos (the word “the Logos.” Gr., ho loʹgos; Lat., Verʹbum; J17,18,22(Heb.), had·Da·varʹ), not a person which was with God, namely God His speaking. It was God His speaking not a person “Word” = not a figure but a result of having a breath going out of the mouth and producing sounds which forms words. Then there is written about the Logos or word: “and the Word was God” yes it was God Who spoke and produced the sounds, presenting a divine Word or godly word.

In the Christian Greek Scriptures “the Word” (Gr., ho Loʹgos) also appears as a title. (#Joh 1:1,14; Re 19:13) John continued, saying:

“This one was in the beginning with God.”

because the speaking of God presenting a Word and offering words which brought into creation, was from eternity by God, in Him and from Him. Without God speaking nothing came about. At the beginning all things came into existence through God, but now John understood by the fall of man the world had lost its essence of being. By Christ who came into existence some 2020 years ago the Word of God brought the news to the virgin who became with child because of the speaking of God.

First God had spoken in the Garden of Eden about a solution against the curse of death. Now that promise became fulfilled by the Word (the speaking) of God. By Adam and Eve, death entered into the world, all became death according to the Holy Scriptures but now by the Word of God spoken to the virgin Miriam/Myriam (Mary/Maria) that one spoken about became alive and as such the Word of God became in the flesh. The apostle John identified the one to whom the title “Word” belongs, namely, Jesus, he being so designated during his ministry on earth as a perfect man that though he was first lower than angels became placed higher than them. (Remember God was, is, and always shall be the Most High).

It was the divine One Who had spoken from when there was void and by His Word came light and there came a rising of the sun

Psalm 50:1: 50 The Divine One,+ God, Jehovah,*+ has himself spoken,+ And he proceeds to call the earth,*+ From the rising of the sun until its setting.+

Trinitarians are looking at that word as being a person but than they should also look at whom it can refer and that the second word being spoken of is a word of which is not said that it is The God but that it is a god:

“The Word was a god.”

“In a beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the God, and a god was the Word.” (Emphatic Diaglott – interlineary side)

John says:

“In the beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god.” (#Joh 1:1)(NW)

The King James Version and the Douay Version read:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

This would make it appear that the Word was identical with Almighty God, while the former reading, in the New World Translation and several other word for word literal translations, indicates that the Word is not the God, Almighty God, but is a mighty one, a god.

Those trinitarians seem to forget that even the judges of ancient Israel, who wielded great power in the nation, were called “gods.” [Ps 82:6; Joh 10:34, 35]) Actually, in the Greek text, the definite article ho, “the,” appears before the first “God,” but there is no article before the second.

When John says that word was in the beginning with God, you should think about two different words;

  • 1st The Word Word of The God i.e. the speaking of the Most High God and
  • 2ndly the Word spoken in the Garden of Eden at the beginning of times, the promise of a solution against the choice made by the first human beings. That word spoken or given to Adam and Eve was all about the Messiah, a promise or word which shall be given to more people and would be professed by several prophets (men of God). God haven given His Word in the Garden made that the one promised was recognised by God to be the one to bring the solution. Like you and us already known by God from the beginning of times, each of us also written down in the “Book of life and death”, Jeshua his name (or Jesus) also was already written down and God knew him to be the Kristos or Christ. As such like you and we being known by God already long before Abraham was born and also written down in the Book of life, Jesus too was known by God long before Abraham was born.

John believing in the Jesus he came to know, to be the Christ or Messiah, was convinced by this man of flesh and blood, who really died (remember God can not die) that the world could look at a new beginning or new creation. John 1:14 tells us, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” When the Word = the spoken word or promise of God, became flesh, Jeshua (Jesus) dwelt in the womb of Miriam or Mary and was born as Jesus.

You might consider ‘incarnation‘ as some returning from death or form an other state of being coming into the world (again) by becoming an other being or person (or animal) but many Trinitarians saying Jesus being “the incarnation of God”, has the term “incarnation” meaning “to become flesh” not according the Biblical teachings.  Not “Jesus is God in flesh” like they say, but having divine elements in him. Several Trinitarian preachers themselves come up with quoting Colossians 2:9 which says,

“for in him dwells all the fullness of deity in bodily form.”

They should look at their chosen text fragment in context:

8 Look out: perhaps there may be someone who will carry+ YOU off as his prey through the philosophy+ and empty deception*+ according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary+ things of the world and not according to Christ; 9 because it is in him that all the fullness+ of the divine+ quality*+ dwells bodily. 10 And so YOU are possessed of a fullness by means of him, who is the head of all government and authority.+ 11 By relationship+ with him YOU were also circumcised+ with a circumcision performed without hands by the stripping off the body of the flesh,+ by the circumcision that belongs to the Christ, 12 for YOU were buried with him in [his]* baptism,+ and by relationship with him YOU were also raised+ up together through [YOUR] faith+ in the operation+ of God, who raised him up from the dead.+ (Ref.B)

You might say that “in him (Jesus) that all the fullness  …  dwells bodily”:

(#Eph 1:23): 23 which is his body,+ the fullness+ of him who fills up all things in all.+

(#Col 1:19): 19 because [God]* saw good for all fullness+ to dwell in him,

(#Ros 11:25): 25 For I do not want YOU, brothers, to be ignorant of this sacred secret,+ in order for YOU not to be discreet in your own eyes: that a dulling of sensibilities+ has happened in part to Israel until the full number*+ of people of the nations has come in,+

(#Joh 1:16): 16 For we all received from out of his fullness,+ even undeserved kindness upon undeserved kindness.+

(#Col 2:3): 3 Carefully concealed in him are all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge.+

and there is spoken of all the fullness of the divine quality which dwells bodily giving us to look at the fullness of the divine

(#Ac 17:29): 29 “Seeing, therefore, that we are the progeny of God,+ we ought not to imagine that the Divine Being*+ is like gold or silver or stone, like something sculptured by the art and contrivance of man.+

and at the divine quality = “Divine quality.” Lit., “godship.” Gr., the·oʹte·tos; Lat., di·vi·ni·taʹtis, dwelling bodily

(#Col 1:19): 19 because God was pleased to have all fullness to dwell in him,+

(#Col 2:3): 3 Carefully concealed in him are all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge.+

A Lutheran priest wanted us to remind, but forget himself

Few more points about John 1:1. First, the words “in the beginning” in John 1:1 are translated from the Greek words en arche. It is highly significant that these are the very words that begin the Book of Genesis in the Septuagint (the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament, which predates the time of Christ). The obvious conclusion we must draw is that John’s “beginning” is identical to the Genesis “beginning.”

that is just the whole point John looking at the books of Moses and the way he looked at the creation of the old world, now John looking at the creation of the new world.

(#1Joh 1:1): 1 That which was from [the] beginning, {See (#1Jo 3:11) ftn. }{(#1Jo 2:7; 2:24; 3:11) } which we have heard,+ which we have seen with our eyes,+ which we have viewed+ attentively and our hands felt,+ concerning the word of life,+

(#Pr 8:22) 22 “Jehovah himself produced me* as the beginning [“As the beginning of.” Heb., reʼ·shithʹ; Gr., ar·khenʹ; not bereʼ·shithʹ (Heb.) or en ar·kheiʹ (Gr.) as in (#Ge 1:1); Sy, “as the first”; TVgc(Lat., in i·niʹti·o), “in the beginning.”] of his way,+ the earliest of his achievements of long ago.+

(#Col 1:15): 15 He is the image+ of the invisible+ God, the firstborn+ of all creation;

(#Re 3:14): 14 “And to the angel of the congregation in La·o·di·ceʹa+ write: These are the things that the Amen*+ says, the faithful+ and true+ witness,+ the beginning of the creation by God,+

In several passages from the Scriptures you shall be able to find several people, not to say “all people” where created from the beginning. Man is being created by God and we only can exist because God allows us to exist. But life today can only come to us by the solution God provided for at the event when the first man and woman made the wrong choice and rebelled against God. The adversary caused a broken relationship with the Divine Creator which can only be restored by the Messiah. Now, only by Jesus life is possible for us.

by means of him is life and can we come to God:

#Joh 5:26): 26 For just as the Father has life in himself,*+ so he has granted also to the Son to have life in himself.+

(#Ac 3:15): 15 whereas YOU killed the Chief Agent of life.+ But God raised him up from the dead, of which fact we are witnesses.+

(#1Jo 1:2): 2 (yes, the life was made manifest,+ and we have seen and are bearing witness+ and reporting to YOU the everlasting life+ which was with the Father and was made manifest to us,)

(#1Jo 5:11): 11 And this is the witness given, that God gave us everlasting life,+ and this life is in his Son.+

(#Joh 11:25): 25 Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life.*+ He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life;+

(#Re 1:18): 18 and the living one;+ and I became dead,+ but, look! I am living forever and ever,+ and I have the keys of death+ and of Haʹdes.*+

(#John 14:6): 6 Jesus said to him: “I am the way+ and the truth+ and the life.+ No one comes to the Father except through me.+

(#Col 3:4): 4 When the Christ, our life,+ is made manifest, then YOU also will be made manifest+ with him in glory.+

(#Joh 5:24): 24 Most truly I say to YOU, He that hears my word and believes him that sent me has everlasting life,+ and he does not come into judgment but has passed over from death to life.+

Further in the Bereshith or Genesis you can see how darkness came over mankind, but also how God’s promise was held, though did not bring light all over the world.

In verse 4 of John’s 1st chapter it is said

“the life was the light of men”

{The punctuation of vss 3 and 4 is according to WH, Vgww and The Greek New Testament by the United Bible Societies. }:

(#Joh 5:26): 26 For just as the Father has life in himself,*+ so he has granted also to the Son to have life in himself.+

(#Ac 3:15): 15 whereas YOU killed the Chief Agent of life.+ But God raised him up from the dead, of which fact we are witnesses.+

(#1Joh 1:2): 2 (yes, the life was made manifest,+ and we have seen and are bearing witness+ and reporting to YOU the everlasting life+ which was with the Father and was made manifest to us,)

(#1Joh 5:11): 11 And this is the witness given, that God gave us everlasting life,+ and this life is in his Son.+

It is not God Who incarnated like trinitarians insinuate. An incarnation is something against God His telling we should not consider beings to incarnate but should know that when we die we have paid for our sins and then we will know nothing any more, our life being finished and them decaying, becoming dust like man came from dust.

The Word, God’s Son, we must accept as the

“firstborn of all creation; because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and upon the earth.”  —  (#Re 3:14; Col 1:15,16).

It may well be that some their translation gives in Colossians 1:16:

“By him [Christ] all things were made in the heavens and on the earth.”

To which a classic commentary on Colossians helpfully responds,

“This does not mean ‘by him’” (Expositors’ Greek Testament on Colossians, p.502).

The author cites Moule, Ellicott and Meyer in support of the idea that creation “depends causally on the Son,” that is, that all things were made “because of the Son” — not “by the Son.”

Thus also these two helpful translations: Complete Jewish Bible (Stern), Colossians 1:16:

“Because in connection with him were created all things — in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, lordships, rulers or authorities — they have all been created through him and for him.”

MacDonald Idiomatic Translation:

“Because for him everything in the heavens and on earth was created, both phenomena and noumena, whether thrones, dominions, administrations, or authorities. All were created through him and for him.”

In Anthony Buzard’s translation, The One God, One Man Messiah Translation of the NT (Amazon.com or 800-347-4261):

“Because in him in intention everything was originally created by God, in heaven and on earth.”

“We must render ‘in [en] him’ as ‘because of’ in Col. 1:16” (Nigel Turner, A Grammar of NT Greek, Vol. 3, p.253).

Dr. James Dunn translates

“in him in intention” (Christology in the Making, p. 190).

Jesus was not the Creator of heaven and earth. He never claimed that, and he knew of Isaiah 44:24: Jehovah made everything alone and unaccompanied.

“Thus saith Jehovah, thy Redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb: I am Jehovah, that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth (who is with me?);” (Isaiah 44:24 ASV)

John believing Jesus is the solution to the curse of death, opening the gates to Kingdom of God as the Way to God, and not as God himself, sees in Jesus the special man bringing salvation and life. By him we can step out of the darkness, coming into the light of the new world. Jesus being the door or gate by which we can enter in God’s Kingdom, after Jesus has come to judge the living and the dead.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6 ASV)

“I am the door; by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and go out, and shall find pasture.” (John 10:9 ASV)

“through whom also we have had our access by faith into this grace wherein we stand; and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5:2 ASV)

“for through him we both have our access in one Spirit unto the Father.” (Ephesians 2:18 ASV)

“by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;” (Hebrews 10:20 ASV)

Jesus is the one by whom we can come to God, not to himself (being God), but by being the sent one from God, who shows us the way. The son of God and not ‘god son‘.

“and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17 ASV)

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 ASV)

“Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner.” (John 5:19 ASV)

“Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.” (John 8:42 ASV)

From the Bible texts, which we conceder the infallible Word of God, you should come to understand that Jesus is the given one by God and not God coming to earth, faking that He would be tempted (because God cannot be tempted) or faking His death (because God cannot die, being an eternal Spirit, not having flesh, bones nor blood — all things Jesus had).

John explains that the word or the speaking of God brought us Jesus and that Jesus was under them

“So the Word became flesh and resided among us [as the Lord Jesus Christ], and we had a view of his glory, a glory such as belongs to an only-begotten son from a father.” (#Joh 1:14)

By becoming flesh, the Word became visible whilst no man can see God and live, but Jesus was seen by many who staid alive and even came to life again.

“And he said, Thou canst not see my face; for man shall not see me and live.” (Exodus 33:20 ASV)

“He was not the light, but [came] that he might bear witness of the light.” (John 1:8 ASV)

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24 ASV)

Jesus after he was resurrected by God, showed his disciples his wounds to proof he was no spirit at all. In case he would have been God he would have been a spirit, but worse than he would know everything (because God is omniscient or all-knowing), though he told he knew several things not; and then he would have lied (though we are told that Jesus was without sin and also that God does not tell lies and can not sin).

Though the scriptures indicate clearly that God declared Jesus not to be Him, having come down to earth, but to be His only begotten beloved son.

“and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17 ASV)

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 ASV)

“30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. 31 And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34 And Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee: wherefore also the holy thing which is begotten shall be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:30-35 ASV)

“3 So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the rudiments of the world: 4 but when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 that he might redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6 And because ye are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 So that thou art no longer a bondservant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.” (Galatians 4:3-7 ASV)

“21 Now it came to pass, when all the people were baptized, that, Jesus also having been baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form, as a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. 23 And Jesus himself, when he began [to teach], was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the [son] of Heli,” (Luke 3:21-23 ASV)

Jesus also was placed on earth to declare his heavenly Father and to be a visible and hearable, feelable witnesses and presenter of God’s Power on earth. In this way men of flesh could have direct contact and association with “the word of life,” which, John says,

“was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have viewed attentively and our hands felt.”  —  (#1Jo 1:1-3).

The glorified Lord Jesus Christ continues to carry the title “the Word,” as noted in (#Re 19:11-16). There in a vision of heaven John says he saw a white horse whose rider was called “Faithful and True,” “The Word of God”; and

“upon his outer garment, even upon his thigh, he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.”

Why God’s Son is called “the Word.”?

A title often describes the function served or the duty performed by the bearer. So it was with the title Kal-Hatzé, meaning

“the voice or word of the king,”

that was given an Abyssinian officer. Based on his travels from 1768 to 1773, James Bruce describes the duties of the Kal-Hatzé as follows. He stood by a window covered with a curtain through which, unseen inside, the king spoke to this officer. He then conveyed the message to the persons or party concerned. Thus the Kal-Hatzé acted as the word or voice of the Abyssinian king.  —  Travels to Discover the Source of the Nile, London, 1790, Vol. III, p. 265; Vol. IV, p. 76.

Recall, too, that God made Aaron the word or “mouth” of Moses, saying:

“He must speak for you to the people; and it must occur that he will serve as a mouth to you, and you will serve as God to him.”  —  (#Ex 4:16).

In a similar way God’s firstborn son doubtless served as the Mouth, or Spokesman, for his Father, the great King of Eternity. He was God’s Word of communication for conveying information and instructions to the Creator’s other spirit and human sons. It is reasonable to think that prior to Jesus’ coming to earth, on many of the occasions when God communicated with humans he used the Word as his angelic mouthpiece. (#Ge 16:7-11; 22:11; 31:11; Ex 3:2-5; Jg 2:1-4; 6:11,12; 13:3) Since the angel that guided the Israelites through the wilderness had ‘Jehovah’s name within him,’ he may have been God’s Son, the Word. (#Ex 23:20-23)

Jesus knew very well he could do nothing without the only One God Who is much grater than him.

“But we behold him who hath been made a little lower than the angels, [even] Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God he should taste of death for every [man].” (Hebrews 2:9 ASV)

“Since then the children are sharers in flesh and blood, he also himself in like manner partook of the same; that through death he might bring to nought him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;” (Hebrews 2:14 ASV)

“Wherefore it behooved him in all things to be made like unto his brethren, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.” (Hebrews 2:17 ASV)

“17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh even until now, and I work. 18 For this cause therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only brake the sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal with God. 19 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, even so the Son also giveth life to whom he will. 22 For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment unto the Son; 23 that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of death into life. 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: 27 and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, 29 and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment. 30 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

31  If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 It is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. 33 Ye have sent unto John, and he hath borne witness unto the truth. 34 But the witness which I receive is not from man: howbeit I say these things, that ye may be saved. 35 He was the lamp that burneth and shineth; and ye were willing to rejoice for a season in his light. 36 But the witness which I have is greater than [that of] John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.” (John 5:17-36 ASV)

“Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.” (John 8:42 ASV)

“27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful.

28  Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe. 30 I will no more speak much with you, for the prince of the world cometh: and he hath nothing in me; 31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.” (John 14:27-31 ASV)

“5 Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 who, existing in the form of God, counted not the being on an equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men; 8 and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient [even] unto death, yea, the death of the cross.” (Philippians 2:5-8 ASV)

“But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” (1 Corinthians 11:3 ASV)

“And when all things have been subjected unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subjected to him that did subject all things unto him, that God may be all in all.” (1 Corinthians 15:28 ASV)

It are all the Words from God in the Holy Scriptures, which we should take at heart, and we do hope you shall come to see and understand who Jesus really is and what he has done for mankind.

By not wanting to accept Jesus as a son of man and son of God, being a man of flesh and blood, people ignore not only God His Words and Jesus his words, but also minimises those actions Jesus did take or how he managed to set his will aside for doing the Will of God (namely if Jesus is God he would always have done his own will and would also have known that man can do him nothing, because man can do nothing to God and God can not die, having always eternal life). Also by denying Jesus his sacrificial offering trinitarians take away the hope we can have as human beings that it is really possible for man to come out of the dead. On the other hand if Jesus would be really God as trinitarians want us to believe, than they make Him a very cruel God, having given mankind commandments He knew they would never be able to keep, as well not having solved the problem directly after the fall of Adam and Eve, punishing all those coming after Adam and Eve for something they did not do, plus still letting us suffer so much after He so called brought us the solution against death.

Hopefully the text we gave as an answer can shed some more light and show you to look further to the connection with other Bible texts.
