4 “In Colossians 1:1517 the Jehovah Witnesses’ translation falsifies what Paul originally wrote, rendering it, ‘He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation, because by means of Him all other things were created in the heavens and upon the earth...All other things were made to exist.’ Here the word ‘other’ has been unwarrantably inserted four times. It is not present in the original Greek and was obviously used by the translators in order to make the passage refer to Jesus as being on a par with other created things” (Bruce M. Metzer, “Jehovah’s Witnesses and Jesus Christ,” Theology Today, April 1953, Princeton, New Jersey, p. 76).

“There is really no serious doubt that the true reading is the latter (‘to Me’), not the former (‘to Him’)....It was, in fact, originally nothing but a marginal correction, due to the desire partly of eliminating so strong a testimony to the deity or Jehovah title of the Lord Jesus”; et. seq. pp. 422424 (W. Kelly, An Exposition of the Gospel of John, F. E. Race, London, 1898).

“To me it is as clear as the sun at noonday that Christ was the Jehovah of the Old Testament.”
John Nelson Darby1
The publisher strongly urges Christians to meditate on the precious truths contained herein. It is a scriptural answer to the basic error on which the heresy of the so-called Jehovah’s Witnesses is built. The same Arian heterodoxy is inherent in all modernistic teaching which affects the truth of the deity of the Lord Jesus.
