    Why was the Son created before the Incarnation? It doesn't make sense. (not that vicarious atonement itself makes sense but that's another thing)

      No it makes perfect sense. It is extremely important to realize that Jehovah did not send just ANY angel to rescue mankind.

      He made the SUPREME sacrifice of sending his only-begotten SON, “the one he was specially fond of.”—Proverbs 8:30; John 3:16.”

      This is true because:

      ONLY Jehovah’s firstborn Son could measure up to the special needs of the situation involving sinful mankind.

      He is such an image of his heavenly Father in showing affection for members of the divinely produced family that he is WITHOUT EQUAL among the sons of God !!!

      Since all other intelligent creatures were brought into existence by means of him, his affection for them would certainly be abundant 😀

        This is moronic. God is almighty, therefore he could just forgive the sins of men with a slide of hand. Why would he need to sacrifice his first born son?
        If only the first born son will do, then it implies that God is not capable of forgiving the sins of humanity a second time

            JW as a faith is literally a heresy.
            God created the world and all his signs, and yet you are ignoring them instead you are claiming to bear witness to a construct that is so obviously baseless that it is insane.
            God has not created your church.
            God does not love your church.
            He is far more vengeful then you know.
            And when the time comes, you will be destroyed along with all the demon worshipers and idolaters.
            You just stay with your group out of comfort or because it is familiar, and because the wider world is scary. But God tasks men of faith to wander over water, and by instead remaining sheltered away - and still using his name in vein with every word you utter - you are blaspheming gods name.
            Indeed there is a special place in hell for your kind

            To gain salvation, you must exercise faith in Jesus and demonstrate that faith by obeying his commands.
            —Acts 4:10, 12; Romans 10:9, 10; Hebrews 5:9.

            No they are not.
            The Bible was written down many generations after the events that took place.
            It gives a good account but it is not perfect.
            The way it must be read is by trying to find the meaning behind the words, that is why there are multiple gospels that partially contradict each other.
            Trying to read it word by word, and taking it as literally as possible is bound to lead to heresy.
            This is why Lutheranism is also a heresy and released from the firm bounds of tradition it later evolved into our current atheistic marxism and wokeism (it IS just a form of protestantism, make no mistake).
            But the JW take it a step further, all you are preaching is just blaspheming god, because you are not reading the Bible as you are supposed to and at the same time saying that it is the original Christianity is the absolute bight of blasphemy

          The problem with the NT is a lot of the content was clearly written by people with different ideas of what Jesus was. some clearly think he was god, others seem to see him as the son of god.

            Who are these experts? Who is to say that God didn't mean something different than what the 'experts' gathered from the verse?

            Because the statement “the Word was WITH God” indicates that TWO separate persons are discussed in the verse.

            It is not possible for the Word to be “WITH God” and at the same time BE God Almighty !!

            The context also confirms that the Word is not Almighty God. John 1:18 states that “no man has seen God at any time.” However, people did see the Word, Jesus, for John 1:14 states that “the Word became flesh and resided among us, and we had a view of his glory.”

      >Why does the known history of JW then begin in the 19th century?

      Because in his illustration of the wheat and the weeds, Jesus foretold a great rebellion (apostasy) against true Christianity. (Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43)

      For a long period of time, true Christians and false Christians would be indistinguishable. Just as Jesus foretold, the apostasy flourished after the apostles died. (Acts 20:29, 30)

      >How many JWs were there in the 10th to 18th century?

      Jesus indicated that there would continue to be genuine anointed Christians on earth to defend the truth. (Matthew 13:24-30)

      I of course cannot say for sure who they were.

      but through the centuries many have denounced unscriptural beliefs and practices.

      Some of these were Archbishop Agobard of Lyons in the 9th century, Peter of Bruys, Henry of Lausanne, and Waldo in the 12th century, John Wycliffe in the 14th century, and Henry Grew, Charles Russell and George Storrs in the 19th century.

      In the 16th century, Tyndale was used by Jehovah to translate the Bible in English. Then he used other men who loved the Bible to progressively re-establish the truth (the wheat) which was overgrown by the weed. That includes the Bible students, which then adopted the name Jehovah's Witnesses in 1931 !

      How can the "fundamental structural forces" of the universe also create the universe? The forces of the universe cannot predate the universe itself. They are part of the universe, and they give structure to the universe.
      Also, even if the fundamental forces could create the universe, how can they feel any love for their creation?

      >New World Translation: "and the word was a god."
      How do they justify this? The original Greek text clearly says "and God is the Word" (Θεὸς ἦν ὁ Λόγος).

      >New World Translation: "and the word was a god."
      How do they justify this? The original Greek text clearly says "and God is the Word" (Θεὸς ἦν ὁ Λόγος).

      While many Bible translators render the verse to say that the word is God, others see the need to render it differently. In the original-language text, the two occurrences of “God” (Greek, the·osʹ) at John 1:1 are grammatically different.

      In the first occurrence, the word “God” is preceded by the Greek definite article, while the article does not appear before the second occurrence. Many scholars note that the absence of the definite article before the second the·osʹ is significant.

      For example, The Translator’s New Testament says regarding this absence of the article: “In effect it gives an adjectival quality to the second use of Theos (God) so that the phrase means ‘The Word was divine.’” (The Translator’s New Testament, page 451.)

      Other scholars and Bible translations point to this same distinction.

        >In the first occurrence, the word “God” is preceded by the Greek definite article
        What definitive article? Are you referring to "τόν"?
        >Many scholars note that the absence of the definite article before the second the·osʹ is significant.
        Significant in what way? The definitive article that is missing is "ό". It is missing because it is not needed. The phrase "Θεός ήν ο Λόγος" literally means "God is the Word". There's no escaping that.

        Please explain to me why you think the phrase "Θεός ήν ο Λόγος" means "a God is the Word".

          "Because [the apostle John] has no definite article in front of theos it becomes a description . . . John is not here identifying the Word with God. To put it very simply, he does not say that Jesus was God.”

            I am confused. Again, the phrase "Θεός ήν ο Λόγος" means "God is the Word". That's what it means. There's nothing confusing about that. It's clear as day. Trust me, I am a native speaker. Or don't trust me, I don't really care. You can believe what you want to believe.

            >Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ Λόγος...
            In [the] beginning is the Word...
            >...καὶ ὁ Λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν Θεόν...
            and the Word is towards [the] God...
            >...καὶ Θεὸς ἦν ὁ Λόγος.
            ...and God is the Word.

            That's the translation, word for word.

            Grammatically, John 1:1 is not a difficult verse to translate. It follows familiar, ordinary structures of Greek expression. A lexical (‘interlinear’) translation of the controversial clause would read: ‘And a god was the Word.’ A minimal literal (‘formal equivalence’) translation would rearrange the word order to match proper English expression: ‘And the Word was a god.’

            The preponderance of evidence, from Greek grammar, from literary context, and from cultural environment, supports this translation

            Nope. There's nothing in the text that could be translated as "a God" instead of just "God". There is no "a" in the Greek text.

            Yes there is, the lack of article makes it an attribute.

            The problem is that there's already a greek word for "divine"; it is "θεϊκόν" or "θείον". If the Word was divine, the phrase used would probably have been something like: θείος Λόγος, instead of Θεός Λόγος.

            The phrase "Θεός [ήν ο] Λόγος" simply means "God [is the] Word]".

            By the way, the phrase "άνθρωπος ήν ο Ιωάννης" would be translated as "human is John", not "a human is John".

            if theos at Jonh 1:1c is intended as definite or in any way unique or notable, the article should be with it !

            And since the article is not with it at John 1:1c, it is not definite nor is it a unique or notable instance. In other words, it may be “a god” as one in a class of “mighty ones” which could include powerful kings, judges, and angels. But it cannot be “God” (or anything synonymous) who is certainly unique or notable (and even “the only one of its kind”) !

            Hence John does say that Jesus is not God but is divine, or 'a god'.

            No, not necessarily.
            God is the Word = The God is the Word
            These phrases basically mean the same thing. The first phrase is missing the definitive article, but that's not a problem, is it?
            >it may be “a god” as one in a class of “mighty ones” which could include powerful kings, judges, and angels
            Powerful kings, judges and angels are not referred to as "Gods" in the Bible. Ever.
            >But it cannot be “God”
            Of course it can. It is crystal clear, actually.

            Since most languages (including NT Greek and modern English) usually go from the definite to the indefinite (or specific to general) when using predicate nouns, this “rule” often seems significant.

            when we use predicate nouns we most often are identifying some specific thing or person (definite) as being one in a certain group or class (indefinite): “the mailman is a veteran;” “the dog in our yard is a poodle;” “my wife [the wife of me] is a lawyer.”

            We rarely identify or describe something by going from the indefinite to the definite. In other words we rarely say something like “a veteran is the mailman” or “a poodle is the dog in our yard” or “a lawyer is my wife.”

            So if one has the article and the other does not, it is natural that the one with the article is the subject. But this is not because of "word order" or some rule of grammar. The predicate noun does not HAVE to be without the article.

            the Bible uses 'god' to refer to humans (John 10:34,35), false deities (Exodus 12:12), angels (Psalms 8:5) and even Satan (2 Corinthians 4:4)

            The Bible refers to Jesus as a god in John 1:1, but he is a god compared to humans, not because he is Almighty God himself.

            Angels are also gods compared to humans for example, that is why they are called as such

            However there is no one else like God and Jehovah God alone is the Almighty (Psalms 83:18) and no one can reach his divinity as he is far above anything in existence, only He is Divine in the Supreme sense.

            >Powerful kings, judges and angels are not referred to as "Gods" in the Bible. Ever.
            Not quite. There are false gods mentioned in the Bible which are nothing more than idols. See for instance the Psalms.

            "For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens." - Psalm 96:5

            Also, in addition to these two definitions, there are "gods" referred to in the sense that they have a position of being judge over others, but this sense is again without the sense of being divine or the right to claim to be. So, for example you have the Pharisees getting the following response:

            "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?"
            - John 10:35

            But this is quickly shown for what it is by looking up the full quotation in the Psalms again:

            "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
            But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
            Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations."
            - Psalm 82:6-8

            This third sense of the word "gods" being referred to as simply judges, is taken from the book of Exodus, where the terms for judge and god (lower-case) are used interchangeably in a few places. In their context they mean basically the same thing. They are not to be confused with the divine. These are to be distinguished both from false gods / idols, as well as most importantly from the One True God of the Bible, the Lord and Creator to whom all worship is due.

            >Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.
            - Nehemiah 9:6

            >{A Prayer of Moses the man of God.} Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
            >Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
            - Psalm 90:1-2

            Okay, these are good points. I'll look into those. Still, as a native speaker, I find it impossible to read John 1:1 as to mean anything other than "God is the Logos/Word".

            Yes, you are right about that. The context of John 1:1 is the regular context of who God is, because it says "in the beginning."

          • 2 years ago
            Anonymous

            the “beginning” referred to in this verse cannot mean “the beginning” of God, because God had no beginning.

            Jehovah God is “from EVERLASTING to EVERLASTING.” (Psalm 90:1, 2)

            However, the Word, Jesus Christ, did have a BEGINNING 🙂

            He is “the beginning of the creation by God.”—Revelation 3:14.

            the son IS GOD as john 1:1 says
            and it says God has no begining nor end so it's hard dude

            John 1:1 doesn't say Jesus is God at all.

            The phrase “the Word was a god” describes the divine or godlike NATURE that Jesus possessed before he came to earth.

            He can be described in this way because of his role as God’s Spokesman and his unique position as the firstborn Son of God through whom God created all other things.

            It's the same "experts" that want to groom children into mutliating themselves, and the same ones that think there's nothing wrong with sodomy. They're not really experts at all.

            Meds.

            even tho the prophecy from isaiah 53 doesnt really says it is God or was even divine
            just a faithful son of man

            Jesus is divine in origin. He lived in heaven before being reincarnated as a baby. When on earth he was a just man stripped of all divinity.

            God the Father (whose name is Jehovah) is the only true God.

            Jesus Christ is his firstborn son, is inferior to God, and was created by God.

            The Holy Spirit is not a person; it is God's active force.

            God is a single being

            Jehovah is alone, and above all other beings
            Jehovah created everything that exists

            the current world era entered the last days in 1914 and faces imminent destruction through intervention by God and Jesus Christ, leading to deliverance for those who WORSHIP GOD ACCEPTABLY !

            All other present-day religions are FALSE, identified with Babylon the Great the harlot of Revelation 17, and they will soon be destroyed by the United Nations, which is represented in scripture by the scarlet-colored wild beast of Revelation chapter 17. This development will mark the beginning of the great tribulation.

            Satan will subsequently use world governments to attack Christians, an action that will prompt God to begin the war of Armageddon, during which all forms of government and all people not counted as Christ's sheep will be destroyed.

            After Armageddon, God will extend his heavenly kingdom to include earth, which will be transformed into a paradise similar to the Garden of Eden !!!!

            Most of those who had died before God's intervention will gradually be resurrected during the thousand year judgment day. This judgment will be based on their actions after resurrection rather than past deeds.

            At the end of the thousand years, Christ will hand all authority back to God. Then a final test will take place when Satan is released to mislead perfect mankind. Those who fail will be destroyed, along with Satan and his demons. The result will be a fully tested, glorified human race on earth.

            Jesus Christ began to rule in heaven as king of God's kingdom in October 1914, and Satan was subsequently ousted from heaven to the earth, resulting in woe to humanity.

            Jesus rules invisibly, from heaven, perceived only as a series of "signs".
            Jesus' presence includes an unknown period beginning with his inauguration as king in heaven in 1914, and ending when he comes to bring a final judgment against humans on earth ٩(◕‿◕。)۶

            - John 10:30

            I could go on with John, but let's quote some others.

            >Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
            - Acts 20:28

            God has purchased the church of God with his own blood. This is a reference to Jesus as God.

            >But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
            >For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
            >So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

            >Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

            >And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
            - Philippians 2:9-11

            Now compare this with what Isaiah said:

            >Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
            >I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

            Jesus’ opposers accused him of making himself equal to God. (John 5:18; 10:30-33)

            However, Jesus NEVER claimed to be on the same level as Almighty God. He said: “The Father is greater than I am.”—John 14:28.

            >John 8:24

            Yes, salvation is possible through faith in Jesus. It doesn't at all say that Jesus is God so I don't know why you quoted it.

            >John 8:58

            This was not a reference to God's proclamation in Genesis, Jesus was here referring to an existence from before Abraham and continuing down till he spoke.

            >John 10:30

            That this did not mean that Jesus claimed to be the Father or to be God is evident from his reply !

            The oneness to which Jesus referred must be understood in harmony with the context of his statement.

            He was speaking of his works and his care of the “sheep” who would follow him. His works, as well as his words, demonstrated that there was unity, not disunity and disharmony, between him and his Father, a point his reply went on to emphasize. (John 10:25, 26, 37, 38; John 4:34; 5:30; 6:38-40; 8:16-18.)

            As regards his “sheep,” he and his Father were likewise at unity in their protecting such sheeplike ones and leading them to everlasting life. (John 10:27-29; Ezekiel 34:23, 24.)

            Jesus’ prayer on behalf of the unity of all his disciples, including future ones, shows that the oneness, or union, between Jesus and his Father was not as to identity of person but as to PURPOSE and ACTION !

            In this way Jesus’ disciples could “ALL BE ONE,” just as he and his Father ARE ONE.—John 17:20-23.

            >But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.
            >Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
            >Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.

            So you admit Jesus is not God

            He calls himself Christ, son of God, son of Man and sitting on the RIGHT HAND of power (God)

            Verse 41 is a quote from psalms 110:1 which says Jehovah and not Lord.

            So it says ' ‘Jehovah said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies beneath your feet”’?'

            Jehovah made Jesus king in heaven, so he is Lord. Even though Jesus is lord znd king, he has another Sovereign above him.

            1 Corinthians 11:3
            "But I want you to know that the head of every man is the CHRIST; in turn, the head of a woman is the man; in turn, THE HEAD OF THE CHRIST IS GOD"

            >Acts 20:28

            The Scriptures do at times personify the holy spirit, but this does not prove that the holy spirit is a person.

            The Bible also personifies wisdom, death, and sin. (Proverbs 1:20; Romans 5:17, 21)

            For example, wisdom is said to have “works” and “children,” and sin is depicted as seducing, killing, and working out covetousness.—Matthew 11:19; Luke 7:35; Romans 7:8, 11

            >Philippians 2:9-11

            Obviously, Paul did not believe that Jesus was Almighty God. Otherwise, how could God exalt Jesus to a superior position ? —Philippians 2:9

            >Isaiah 45:22-23

            Jehovah made Jesus the king of heavens, so naturalky all knees will bow to him (except God's)

            Compare with this verse:

            1 Corinthians 15:24-28
            « Next, the end, when he hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. For he must rule as king until God has put all enemies under his feet. And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. For God “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected, it is evident that this does not include the One who subjected all things to him. But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone. »

            It could literally not be even MORE CLEAR THAN THIS

            Jesus will rule for 1000 years, then he will give back the throne to his Father

            Not only does this prove what I said, it also proves that Jesus is NOT God and that Jesus is a SERVANT of God

            >However, the Word, Jesus Christ, did have a BEGINNING 🙂
            In Genesis 1:1 it says, "In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth."

            That isn't an indication that God had a beginning, you just can't read.

            >He is “the beginning of the creation by God.”—Revelation 3:14.
            See also John 17:5

            >And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

            And again, Colossians 1:16-17
            >All things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

            We have quoted nothing but God's word in the Bible. That's all there is to say, end of discussion. People should see the truth while there is still time. This is my opportunity to tell people that truth - now it's up to you whether to believe what Scripture says or not.

            Yes the earth and heavens had a beginning

            So you concur that the Word HAD A BEGINNING !

            >John 17:5

            Jesus is God's first creation so he was there when he began creating the world

            You are not contradicting what I said at all.

            >Colossians 1:16-17

            Yes, God used “his beloved Son” (Colossians 1:13) in creating the things “in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible.”

            This would include the millions of other spirit sons in Jehovah God’s heavenly family, as well as the physical universe. (Ge 1:1; Da 7:9, 10; Joh 1:3; Re 5:11)

            >We have quoted nothing but God's word in the Bible.

            Misquoted*

            >should see the truth while there is still time. This is my opportunity to tell people that truth - now it's up to you whether to believe what Scripture says or not.

            For one thing, the Bible does not mention the word “Trinity.” For another, Jesus never claimed to be equal to God. Instead, Jesus worshipped God. (Luke 22:41-44)

            This has been debunked

            https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200275936

            Okay, if Jesus was not born of the virgin Mary, then who is his father? The bible clearly says he was born from the virgin, doesn't it?

            Where did I say he was not born of the virgin Mary ?

            >You posted a FAKE verse !
            No, those are all inspired verses penned by three of the apostles. I just disproved the notion that there isn't a Trinity in the Bible.

            You posted a fake verse

            Be a man and accept your mistake.

            The JW are heretics who deny God, their cosmology doesn't make any sense as a result of that.

            The trinity doctrine DISHONORS Jehovah God !

            NO ONE is his equal nor did he have a fleshly mother, since Jesus was not God.

            the Trinity doctrine has confused and diluted people’s understanding of God’s true position. It prevents people from accurately knowing the Universal Sovereign, Jehovah God, and from worshiping him on his terms.

            As theologian Hans Küng said:
            “Why should anyone want to add anything to the notion of God’s oneness and uniqueness that can only dilute or nullify that oneness and uniqueness?”

            But that is what belief in the Trinity has done

            >Powerful kings, judges and angels are not referred to as "Gods" in the Bible. Ever.
            Not quite. There are false gods mentioned in the Bible which are nothing more than idols. See for instance the Psalms.

            "For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens." - Psalm 96:5

            Also, in addition to these two definitions, there are "gods" referred to in the sense that they have a position of being judge over others, but this sense is again without the sense of being divine or the right to claim to be. So, for example you have the Pharisees getting the following response:

            "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?"
            - John 10:35

            But this is quickly shown for what it is by looking up the full quotation in the Psalms again:

            "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
            But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
            Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations."
            - Psalm 82:6-8

            This third sense of the word "gods" being referred to as simply judges, is taken from the book of Exodus, where the terms for judge and god (lower-case) are used interchangeably in a few places. In their context they mean basically the same thing. They are not to be confused with the divine. These are to be distinguished both from false gods / idols, as well as most importantly from the One True God of the Bible, the Lord and Creator to whom all worship is due.

            >Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.
            - Nehemiah 9:6

            >{A Prayer of Moses the man of God.} Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
            >Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
            - Psalm 90:1-2

            Consider the following, more accurate translations:

            “In the beginning the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was divine.”—The Bible—An American Translation, 1935, by J.M.P. Smith and E. J. Goodspeed.

            “The Logos existed in the very beginning, the Logos was with God, the Logos was divine.”—The Bible—Containing the Old and New Testaments, 1950, by James Moffatt.

            “The Word was in the beginning, and the word was with God, and the word was a god.”—The New Testament in an Improved Version, 1808, edited by Thomas Belsham, based on a New Testament translation by William Newcome.

            “In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was with God. So the Word was divine.”—The Authentic New Testament, 1958, by Hugh J. Schonfield.

            The problem is that there's already a greek word for "divine"; it is "θεϊκόν" or "θείον". If the Word was divine, the phrase used would probably have been something like: θείος Λόγος, instead of Θεός Λόγος.

            The phrase "Θεός [ήν ο] Λόγος" simply means "God [is the] Word]".

            By the way, the phrase "άνθρωπος ήν ο Ιωάννης" would be translated as "human is John", not "a human is John".

            I've been carefully substantiating everything I've claimed with the Bible. Unfortunately not everyone does this. The difference between most groups is that they don't actually do this, they just take a few things out of context at most.

            They don't realize what Peter said in the New Testament, "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation." (2 Peter 1:20)
