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 Watchtower Reprints, December 1, 1903, p. 3282

"But he could justify only such as believed in Jesus; and how could they believe on him of whom they had not heard, and with out a preacher sent of God? (Rom. 10:14)"


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. From this we are to understand that the great Jehovah did not directly employ His own power in creating either men or angels; but that He delegated His power to His Only-begotten Son. -Z. '93-115; Rev. 1:4; 16:5-7."


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;"


The Word Who Is He? According to John, 1962 ed., p. 4-5

"Of course, the Bible reader who uses the generally accepted versions or translations will at once say; 'Why, there should be no difficulty about knowing who the Word is. It plainly says that the Word is God; and God is God.' But, in answer, we must say that not all our newer modern translations by Greek scholars read that way,ÉSo in the above-quoted Bible translations we are confronted with the expressions 'God' 'divine' 'god of a sort,' 'god, and 'a god,' Men who teach a triune God, Trinity, strongly object to the translation 'a god.'

They say, among other things, that it means to believe in polytheism. Or they call it Unitarianism or Arianism."


The Word Who Is He? According to John, 1962 ed., p. 40

"So again we note that Jesus never spoke of himself as God or called himself God. He always put himself below God rather than on an equality with God."

Make Sure, 1965 ed., p. 486

Reference to Jesus as "Ho Theos"


The Watchtower, July 1, 1986, p. 31

"The title ho theos (the God, or God) which now designates the Father as a personal reality, is not applied in the N(ew) T(estament) to Jesus Himself."


Should You Believe in the Trinity, 1989 ed., p. 14

"Jesus, in his prehuman existence, was 'the first-born of all creation.' (Colossians 1:15, NJB) He was 'the beginning of God's creation.' (Revelation 3:14, RS, Catholic edition). 'Beginning' (Greek, ar-khe') cannot rightly be interpreted to mean that Jesus was the 'beginner' of God's creation. In his Bible writings, John uses various forms of the Greek work ar-khe' more than 20 times, and these always have the common meaning of 'beginning.' Yes, Jesus was created by God as the beginning of God's invisible creations."


Should You Believe in the Trinity, 1989 ed., p.15

"The Bible calls Jesus the 'only-begotten Son' of God. (John 1:14; 3:16, 18: 1 John 4:9) Trinitarians say that since God is eternal, so the Son of God is eternal. But how can a person be a son and at the same time be as old as his father?"


Knowledge That Leads to Everlasting Life, 1995 ed., p. 32

"Others have distorted Jesus' role, worshipping him as Almighty God."


Knowledge That Leads to Everlasting Life, 1995 ed., p. 39

"Jesus was called God's 'only begotten Son' because Jehovah created him directly. (John 3:16) As 'the firstborn of all creation,' Jesus was then used by God to create all other things. (Colossians 1:15; Revelation 3:14)"
