Yes, Ana.<quoted text>
BMZ did you watch the channel 4 series about the history of the bible.... Go to YouTube and search for Robert beckford, he has quite a few series, he himself is a Christian, a historian and theologist , makes mention of the oldest surviving copy of the bible which is in Greek, also some ancient scriptures, and Jesus doesn't refer to himself as god....also discusses how the King James Bible came to be...
I have watched and I have also read and studied a lot on the history of Christianity and her Church, which I fondly call Forgeries Inc.
Jesus never called himself God. The claims that Jesus claimed that he was God, are absurd and come from trinitarian Christians mostly.
Most of the frauds and forgeries were carried out during the 5th and the 15th Centuries and stopped only after the arrival of the printing press.
I am sure you will enjoy reading this:
First, the modern version:
" John 1 New International Version (NIV)
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
Such translations are forgeries.
Now, look at the following translation from Wycliffe, who did the first translation in English in the 14th Century:
1 In the bigynnyng was the word, and the word was at God, and God was the word.
2 This was in the bigynnyng at God.
3 Alle thingis weren maad bi hym, and withouten hym was maad no thing, that thing that was maad.
4 In hym was lijf, and the lijf was the liyt of men; and the liyt schyneth in derknessis,
5 and derknessis comprehendiden not it."
No Word, no Jesus in there and no mention of the Holy Spirit at all. John is used to show as if Jesus was God with God but no one can tell how did the Holy Spirit, the third of the alleged three was accepted as the third God.
Wycliffe must have turned in his grave after other forged translations came in English.
