Today’s “Gem” from Bob Stanley’s “The Catholic Treasure Chest”: Beware of “geeks” spouting false or poorly translated Greek.

Dear Watchtower Society (Jehovah’s Witnesses):

I have a question for you. Since the Greek word, ‘KURIOS’, which means ‘LORD’, is the same word used throughout the New Testament, how can you change it here and there to suit yourselves, but not be consistent and change it everywhere it is used?

You have tried to separate Jesus Christ from Jehovah, in order to show from your teaching, that Jesus Christ is not GOD.

Since the word ‘Lord’ is used throughout the Bible as a name for GOD, you were forced to change the word ‘Lord’ to ‘Jehovah’ every time it was used in the Old Testament. That part was easy since Jesus Christ had not appeared on the scene yet. However when it came to the New Testament, both GOD and Lord are synonymous since Jesus Christ IS GOD.

Now you are faced with a dilemma. You cannot change every word ‘Lord’ in the New Testament to ‘Jehovah’, as that would show that all of the verses that applied to Jesus Christ would prove that He and Jehovah are one and the same GOD.

So what did you do?

You changed every word ‘Lord’ which signifies GOD, to ‘Jehovah’, and you let stand every word ‘Lord’ that meant Jesus Christ. Now, I submit that in all of the New Testament, which was written originally in Greek, except for Matthew which was written in Aramaic, the same Greek word for ‘Lord’ which is ‘KURIOS’, is used every time.

‘Lord’ is used over 600 times in the New Testament and of this number you have changed it over 230 times to ‘Jehovah’.

Please explain to me, from the original Greek New Testament, how you managed to translate the Greek word for ‘Lord’, ‘KURIOS’, to ‘Jehovah’ over 230 times, and ‘KURIOS’ to ‘Lord’ over 370 times?

I have asked JW’s to show me any Greek dictionary or word translation (other than the one they wrote), which equates the word ‘kurios’ to ‘jehovah’. They have not responded with a source, as there are no sources.

I have shown here only some of the numerous inconsistencies in the Jehovah’s Witness’ dubiously translated, New World Translation.
