Watchtower Bible and Tract Society Quotes – The Deity of Jesus Christ
The Watchtower Reprints, April 15, 1893, p. 1515
“It is since his resurrection that the message has gone forth – ‘All power in heaven and in earth is given unto me.’ (Matt. 28:18) Consequently it is only since then that he could be called the Almighty (as in Rev. 1:8)”
The Finished Mystery (SS-7), 1917 ed., p. 15
“1:8, I am THE Alpha and I AM ALSO THE Omega. – Alpha is the first letter, and Omega the last letter, of the Greek alphabet. The Beginning and the Ending. -Our Lord’s great honor is shown in that He was not only the first of God’s creation, but the last.

The Finished Mystery (SS-7), 1917 ed., p. 318
“21:6, And He (said) SAITH unto me, (it is done,) I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.- “It was the Father’s good pleasure that the Blessed One, the Only Begotten of the Father, should accomplish the entire program of redemption and restitution;”
According these quotes which were from Charles Taze Russell and Judge Rutherford works Jesus was identified as being called the Almighty, Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and the Ending from Matthew 28:18-20, Revelation 1:4, Revelation 1:8, and Revelation 21:6.
