John 1:1 and John 1:3 teach Jesus is God! Does John 1:1-18 teach the Trinity doctrine? The Word was God the LOGOS is God! Jesus Christ is the eternal Creator of all things according to John 1:3, Colossians 1:16-17, Hebrews 1:1-3, and Revelation 3:14. Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons/ Latter Day Saints/ LDS, Muslims, Oneness Pentecostals, and others reject & deny the eternal Deity of Jesus Christ and believe Jesus Christ is not God. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe Jesus is a god the first to be created, the only begotten Son of God (firstborn Colossians 1:15) by Jehovah God, and that Jesus is Michael the archangel. Mormons believe Jesus was first a man who became a God and was not eternally God. Muslims reject Jesus is God and deny that Jesus is the Son of God.
The Bible teaches in John 1:1-3 Jesus Christ is the Word of God (LOGOS), the Word was God and the Word is God in John 1:1, and Jesus is the only begotten Son of God in John 1:14. Jesus Christ is the eternal LOGOS the Son of God that was made flesh and that took on flesh in John 1:14 and Philippians 2:5-11, and came to reveal God the Father to mankind John 1:18. Those who deny the Deity of Jesus Christ, reject that Jesus Christ is eternal God and Creator of all things need to examine John 1:3, Genesis 1:1, and Isaiah 44:24. The Greek philosophy believed that the universe was created by the eternal LOGOS the Source for all creation and the Jews believe it is God who created all things Genesis 1:1.
The apostle John apologetically brings the Jewish beliefs of the Old Testament and the Greek philosophies together in the New Testament declaring Jesus Christ is the eternal LOGOS and Creator of all things. The Gospel of John refutes Jehovah’s Witnesses, Latter Day Saints/ Mormons, Muslims, Oneness Pentecostals, Gnosticism, Ebionites, Judaizers, and other false movements and false teachers that reject the Deity of Jesus Christ and that Jesus is eternally God. For personal study examine John 1:1-3, John 1:14, John 1:18, Colossians 1:15-17, Philippians 2:5-11, Hebrews 1:1-3, Colossians 2:9, Revelation 3:14, Revelation 22:12-13, Genesis 1:1, and Isaiah 44:24.
