Doesnt John 1:1 prove that Jesus is God?
By Sami Zaatari
It has become quite common now for Muslims to always ask their Christian friends to show us where Jesus ever made the statement that he is God and so on, and it has also become common for us Muslims to make the claim that no where in the Bible do we find that Jesus ever said he is God or made it explicitly known. The Christians will counter by bring up John 1:1, to them John 1:1 is the verse they have been looking for, and they most likely tell themselves how is it possible for Muslims to keep on asking where the Bible states that Jesus is God when John 1:1 makes it very clear, here is what John 1:1 says:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God
Assuming the translation is correct (which its not, the capital G should be small g, it should read the word was a god, satan is also called god in the Bible yet they give him a small g, but for Jesus a capital!) then what we have here is Jesus who is the word is called God, wow I guess Jesus is God then right?! No.
You see, my first question to the Christian is this, is this Jesus speaking? The answer is no, this is NOT Jesus speaking! This is supposedly the disciple John writing this here not Jesus! So what we have is an interpretation of what one man thought! Why cant Christians get us Jesus saying in the beginning the word was with God and the word was God, why didnt Jesus ever say this?! So Christians now want us to believe Jesus is God because of what a man said? A mans interpretation! The Bible itself testifies that the disciples often miss-understood Jesus and didnt understand him!
So John 1:1 does not prove anything, it is not Jesus speaking, and the Gospel of John itself shows Jesus is not God from the very words of Jesus himself! For proof that Jesus is not God from the Bible visit these links:
