Social media activist and bible scholar, Reno Omokri has added his knowledge to Maraji’s post of Jesus being the only way to heaven. Omokri cautioned her that Jesus is not God.
Let me shock you. “Yeshua came to show us the Way to God because He, Yeshua, is the ONLY Way to God. He is the everlasting Melchizedek High Priest. The Mediator between God and man. But He is NOT the Almighty God. That is a European concept”.
“Yeshua never claimed to be God. Many Christians read John 1:1 in The Bible (not the Scriptures) and use that to claim that Yeshua is God. I will urge you to get the original Greek Scriptures and even if you can’t read Greek, just study that verse”.
This is the verse in pure Greek, Omokri continues… “(?ν ?ρχ? ?ν ? λ?γος, κα? ? λ?γος ?ν πρ?ς τ?ν θε?ν, κα? θε?ς ?ν ? λ?γος). Here is the verse in Latin, which may be easier for laymen (In principio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum). Notice the words DEUM and DEUS are used to describe the first and second mention of God”
Remo said, Although you may not be able to read the Greek, what John 1:1 says when translated without changing the words used for God is this “in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with Theon and the Word was Theos”. The original Scriptures did not use the same word for the first mention of God and the second mention. The word used in the first mention is THEON (which refers to the Almighty. The word in the second mention is THEOS which is what is used to refer to Yeshua. This is why Scripture says “my people perish for lack of knowledge”- Hosea 4:6.
The above statement was a correction Reno Omokri made of the misconception by the female comedian, Maraji.
