QUESTIONS TO ASK JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES
Ask: May we make an appointment to ask some questions about the Bible?
1. Why does the Watchtower [WT] translate "ego eimi" as "I am", 133 out of 134 New Testament occurences, except where it proves Christ is God in John 8:58? Here they translate "ego eimi" as "I have been". Why?
2. Why does the WT translate the New Testament word for Lord (ie. "Kurios") as Jehovah, except where it proves Christ is God? For example, "Jesus Christ is Lord" in Philippians 2:11 and "Jesus is Lord" in I Corinthians 12:3.
