Is Jesus the Alpha & Omega??






Seriously this subject Christians like portraying only backfires on them. They use their own understanding with all kind of lies and deceptions just to prove a point. This isn't rocket science to a sane sober believer who knows there is Only One God and he is Eternal with no Beginning or End. How could you even use this one a moral who was born from a women came on earth I.e Birth (had a beginning and also in Islamic believe will have an end I.e leave this Earth) it's clear Jesus of the bible was not Alpha or Omega since he was born disqualifies the first part and according to Christians he was crucified and gave up the ghost which completes the latter part of Omega.

In this paper we would focus on Couple of distinctive points to obliterate this notion of Jesus being Alpha & Omega as assumed by Christians! Since all this nonsense arrived from the book of revelation let's study these crucial points and close this case :



Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. (Revelation 1:11)


"Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and," 

This wording at the beginning of the KJV's version of Rev. 1:11 is not found in virtually any NT Greek texts, nor is it mentioned, even as a footnote, in nearly all modern translations or in Bruce Metzger's definitive A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament, Second Edition, New York: United Bible Societies, 1994. 



There are only three pre-ninth century Greek MSS which attest to this passage [Rev. 1:11], and all three of them omit the phrase "I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last." In addition, many later MSS and versions also omit. Hodges and Farstad's "Majority" text omits, and Robinson and Pierpont's "Byzantine/Majority" text omits. Thus whether one bases one's text largely on pre-ninth century MSS, or whether one bases one's text on the M

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible


Revelation 1:11. I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last; and--The oldest manuscripts, omit all this clause. 




The Adam Clarke Commentary

Revelation 1

Verse 11." I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and
"This whole clause is wanting in ABC, thirty-one others; some editions; the Syriac, Coptic, Ethiopic, Armenian, Slavonic, Vulgate, Arethas, Andreas, and Primasius. Griesbach has left it out of the text." - http://www.studylight.org/com/acc/view.cgi?bk=65&ch=1 


So from the above commentaries and academics Christian scholars we can conclude revelations 1:11 was a later addition a fabrication which King James Bible wasn't hesitant to use ! It's seems like the scribes for King James where not Inspired and had not access to early manuscripts!.  Let's move on to our second point which will really nail Christians in the head!


And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God AND HE WILL BE MY SON.(Revelation 21:6-7)



Notice from the above passage Revelation 21:6-7 indicates that Christians who are spiritual conquerors are to be `SONS ' of the one known as the Alpha and the Omega. That is never said of the relationship with Christians and Jesus Christ. Jesus himself spoke of them as his `BROTHERS.' (Hebrews  2:11, Matthew 12:50, 25:40) But those `BROTHERS' of Jesus are referred to as `SONS of God. (Galatians  3:26, 4:6)

How many Christians believe they are the son of Jesus?? In fact no Christian had ever claimed Jesus is their father So Revelations  21:6-7 confirms the understanding that the Alpha and Omega is Yahweh and not Jesus

Christians fall into a dilemma now if revelation is speaking of Jesus as the Alpha & Omega then they have to accept they are the sons of Jesus if not then they have to agree yahweh is this Alpha & Omega ! 

Note calling Jesus father is committing  Adoptionism & Arianism heresy a punishable offence..



Could it be Satan?

Who's word did he hear ?

By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me. (John 5:30)


----------

from the above statement Jesus is saying he judges only as he hears?? And he's not doing his own will rather everything is done by the will of  him who sent Jesus ? KJV calls this him father Now when Jesus says he judges as he hears?? How do we know Satan isn't telling him what to do? Since Satan is also a father according to Jesus :



You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies
(John 8:44)

So here we have explicit statement from Jesus that many are the children's  of Satan I.e Satan is there FATHER!! And nowhere did Jesus say in John 5:30  that Yahweh is his father rather he said he judges by what he hears? Could Satan be talking to him and inspiring him??

Why do we not have any texts where Jesus and Yahweh spoke one to one like Moses did ? Rather Jesus was forsaken by this God known as Yahweh. Was Satan on Jesus's side How about the temptation Jesus and Satan conversing together where was Yahweh why dint Yahweh intervene??



Serpant or Satan?

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the...
