The Son: 

Jesus was not an uncommon name in Biblical history. It is a Latin form of the Greek "Iesous" and corresponds to the Hebrew Yeshua or Yhohshua which means "Salvation of Jehovah." The Son of God is sometimes distinguished from others of that name by his title: the Christ. Christ is from the Greek Khristos and its meaning is the same as the Hebrew Mashiahh (Messiah) and means "Anointed One."

Speaking of the Word, Paul states that He was in existence even before the world was created: Colossians 1:15-16.

Jesus was Jehovah's only direct creation, "...his only begotten Son...." (John 3:16, KJV) Thereafter, Jehovah used Jesus as the instrument through which everything else was created. This did not mean that Jesus was a co-creator with Jehovah, but only a servant of God who carried out the Almighty's will. Jesus always credited Jehovah with creation (see Matthew 19:4-6).

At the proper time in God's plan, the Word was make a human: "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us." (John 1:14, NIV)

Is Jesus God?: Proclaimers of the Trinity theory use John 1:1 as their strongest proof that Jehovah and Jesus are one and the same: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1. And, on the surface, this statement seems to be a rather straight forward explanation of the relationship of God and Jesus.

However, truth does not arise from single Bible verses taken out of context or blindly accepted without research and study. Or does it?

The Greek manuscripts of John 1:1 show that the Greek definite article is used to distinguish Jehovah as "the God" from his Son which is "a God."

The authoritative Bible scholar, Benjamin Wilson, gives the correct translation: "In a beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the God, and a god was the word." John 1:1

Another section of the Bible used to support the Trinity theory is in 1 John 5. The king James Version states:
"For there are three that bear record [in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth], the spirit, and the water, and the blood; and these three agree in one." 1 John 5:7-8. The oldest and most reliable Bible manuscripts do not include the words withing the brackets in the above scripture and most recognized Bible scholars do not recognize them as part of the original text.

Why then is Trinity a doctrine to hold so dear, so divine?
