Oh, okay, that makes sense. But, I was doing some research last night and I found out that "Kyrios" was an indication of a higher divinity,
a higher divinity? Not sure what you mean by that. I assure you that the idea of different "levels" of divinity is not to be found in the Bible. What sources are you using for research?
and not of Jesus.
Why would it not refer to Jesus if the word was originally written in reference to his name, many times right beside it? That doesn't make sense.
I have also noticed that in 1 John where Jesus is called God, most bible scholars indicate an eroor in translation, and register it rather as "the word was A god" rather than " and the word was God."
First of all that's in the Gospel of John, not in 1 John. And actually the scholarly consensus is the opposite of what you're saying. Most translators have not translated this passage as "a god" but rather as "God". There's a reason for that in the Greek, and I can explain it to you if you want me to. I can assure you that there is no consistency in the translation of the NWT in passages like this ... For example, they translated John 20:28 as "God", and the Greek is identical to John 1:1 where they translated it as "a god". I'm telling you, this is a glaring example of making a text say what one wishes, rather than translating according to what the original writer was conveying.
I wish you could come over. I would brew you a pot of coffee, and show you what I'm talking about by letting you read and compare.
