Does the New World Translation say “Jesus Is God”?

3  He is the reflection of God’s glorye and the exact representation of his very being,f and he sustains all things by the word of his power. And after he had made a purification for our sins,g he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.h Hebrews 1:3 (NWT)

 

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Hebrews 1:3 (KJV)

 

Even though the Jehovah Wittnesses teach that Jesus is not God and He is just an angel, their Bible translation (New World Translation) says a different thing. As we read Hebrews 1, we see that Jesus is the exact representation or image of Jehovah. Now ask yourself who else in the Bible is described as an exact representation of God?

 

 4  So he has become better than the angelsi to the extent that he has inherited a name more excellent than theirs.j Hebrews 1:4 (NWT)

 

Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. Hebrews 1:4 (KJV)

 

Now heres an interesting thing, the JW’s teach that Jesus is Michael the Archangel, however the Bible, including their translation, says that Jesus is greater than all the angels. The Bible does not teach that Jesus is Michael the Angel or that Jesus is an Angel at all. 

 

5  For example, to which one of the angels did God ever say: “You are my son; today I have become your father”?k And again: “I will become his father, and he will become my son”?l  Hebrews 1:5 (NWT)

 

For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? Hebrews 1:5 (KJV)

 

In fact the Bible teaches, including the New World Translation , that Jesus is the Son of God not an Angel. In fact the scripture says that Jehovah never called any of the angels one of his Sons

 

But about the Son, he says: “God is your thronep forever and ever, and the scepter of your Kingdom is the scepter of uprightness. Hebrews 1:8 (NWT)

 

But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Hebrews 1:8 (KJV)

 

Now this scripture is the final nail, right here it states the Son (Jesus ) is God. Even the New World Translation declares the Son is God! Now for those who might say this is out of context or a misinterpretation, what scripture is being referenced right here? Its a direct quote from Psalm 45:6

 

 God is your throne forever and ever;nThe scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness. Psalm 45:6 (NWT)

 

Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Psalm 45:6 (KJV)

 

If the JW is going to say this out of context, then why would the Holy Spirit quote Psalm 45:6 in the context of Hebrews 1:8 of the Son Jesus Christ? Either the Bible is inspired by God or its not

 

The Bible is clear, even in the New World Translation, that Jesus Is God

    I presume from the amount of JW posts that you write you:
    1) Are involved in evangelizing JWs on a regular basis
    2) You have close family/friends who have been deceived by the JWs
    3) You used to be a JW & you want to warn others not to be deceived.

    I do appreciate the work you put into these posts. They are a big help to me as we have several JW congregations in our area.
