The Word became flesh and dwelt among us! …
Not so fast… John 1:14 in context
In my teaching of John 1, I am going to address THE false teaching that Yahusha is a demi-god. The foundation of the Trinity and worship of a sinful mortal man who died (idolatry Romans 1).
In our twisted Greek Philosophy inspired mistranslated English Bibles, we read:
John 1 14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
All of John Chapter 1 through verse 14 is John proclaiming the Word of His Testimony or “Spoken Promise/Logos/Dabar” called The Heavenly Scroll that was with Yahuah in the beginning. John 1:14 is no different as John continues proclaiming “The Glory of Yahuah” which is the message contained in The Heavenly Scroll as the stars tell of Yahuah’s Glory and proclaim the Works of His Hands:
Psalm 19 1 The heavens (sun/stars/constellations) are telling of THE GLORY OF YAHUAH (John 1:14); And their expanse is declaring (dictating) the work of His hands (as everything that was done was done according to the Logos/Dabar/Spoken Promise written in the stars John 1:4). 2 Day to day the stars/constellations pours forth speech (Logos/Dabar - "that SPOKEN by Yahuah"), And night to night reveals knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. 4 Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world (John 1:9). In them He has placed a tent for the sun (John 1:5), 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber (meaning of the Feast Cycle); It rejoices as a strong man to run his course (as the Groom). 6 The Sun's rising is from one end of the heavens (Luke 1:78-79 this is what made John a PROPHET! He would proclaim the "rising Sun coming to us from The Heavenly Scroll"), to the ends of the Earth".
Below is what John REALLY said proven in context and by the actual Greek words:
John 1 14 And the Spoken Promise (of a coming King in The Heavenly Scroll/Light/Logos/Dabar) was brought to pass/fulfilled in the flesh (Strong's g1096 ‘sarki’ outside any divine influence… as promised, the Light of the rising Sun has come to us from The Heavenly Scroll Luke 1:78) and dwelt among us (as promised in the 4th prophetic day), and we saw (the fulfillment of) Yahuah’s glory (as The Heavenly Scroll was fulfilled, the stars tell of the Glory of Yahuah Psalm 19), glory of the (first) begotten son of the only Father, full of grace and truth.
The word translated “became flesh” is Strong’s g1096, means to be fulfilled or brought to pass:
As we are learning, it really is not even the Greek text that is in error, it is mistranslated English Bible we read and the Hellenization of the text based on Greek Philosophy. Then add an army of self-appointed teachers teaching the twisted mistranslated English text as “truth” and we get incarnation which is The Spirit of the False Messiah and blasphemy denying Yahuah’s Glory as Creator and His immortality.
