If you read on, you’ll learn how this SINGLE scripture proves that MOST denominations have been deceived. However, my main research for this article has been concerning Sir Anthony Farquhar Buzzard of the Restoration Fellowship.
Mr Buzzard himself told me that he is an ‘Adventist of our type since 1850’ (we are, of course, NOT SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS) and he rightly teaches us that the TRINITY is false, something that you can very easily discover for yourselves by searching through the scriptures – once you start digging deeper, you can easily see that the scriptures used to support the Trinity are clearly taken out of context, misunderstood, or are sometimes false translations – and even forgeries. Not everyone knows this, however, as most Trinitarians believe only what their pastors teach them, instead of doing their own research and believing what is taught by the oldest Greek Bibles, which clearly reveal that there is NO Trinity taught from the beginning to the end – from the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last.
But, on the other hand, why is Professor Anthony Buzzard also teaching a very odd theory that Jesus never existed before Mary? Especially when his bizarre teachings contradict countless scriptures throughout the Bible, which clearly teach that the world was created THROUGH Jesus and that He was sent by GOD, and that He came down from Heaven, which even the rebellious Jews understood, who repeated the very words Jesus said Himself:
And yet we now find ourselves with a new generation of Christians who teach that Jesus never came down from Heaven at all, and that He was just like us – BORN in our mother’s womb – despite the countless scriptures teaching the exact opposite.
31 He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony. 33 Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. 34 For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure. 35 The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand. 36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. John 3:36.
‘Sir Anthony’ continually stresses that he’s a Bible scholar, and with 50 years’ scholarly experience and a wide array of impressive letters after his name, he says we have good reason to believe him.
And yet the most I’ve learned from Bible scholars is how they can’t agree with what they themselves teach. In fact, it’s hard to find two Bible scholars who actually agree with each other at all. So, which Bible scholar should we believe over any others?
This is why I believe it’s so important to do our own research and to be a Berean Jew, which is what the Bible teaches. Acts 17:11.
Without having to rely on others to determine who is right or wrong. Now we can read them for ourselves and make our own minds up.
And that’s what I’m about to demonstrate in this study: that in these last days we do not need to be a Bible scholar at all, but instead we can just be any ordinary person off the street, just as long as we have a good pair of glasses to see and read the actual Greek words written by the very hands of the scribes themselves, nearly 2000 years ago.
But what about people like Mr Buzzard, who says that because he is a Bible scholar, we should therefore believe everything he says, including his odd theory that Jesus never came down from Heaven, and was not much different to a prophet? Well, as Mr Buzzard sent me emails telling me that my translation of Revelation 3:14 was false, he gave me the perfect opportunity to study his scholarly work, while testing my own.
If you missed my article last week – and are therefore a little confused right now – please let me explain. Last week I presented the evidence of Jesus saying: He was the TRUE witness and the beginning of God’s creation. Read here:
You see, because of what Jesus said in this single unique scripture of Revelation 3:14, His impressive words proved countless teachings to be false, which sadly happens to be the teachings of MOST denominations.
But, just as interesting is what I said at the ‘beginning’ of my article: that the Bible we hold in our hands today is full of false, twisted, and even clear forgeries, because of the biased and prejudiced minds of certain modern translators, who twist the scriptures to make them fit with what they believe instead of what they truly teach, in which I am about to show and demonstrate.
Well, I have to say I was truly overwhelmed to receive a number of emails from Professor Anthony Buzzard of the Restoration Fellowship, and I am now going to prove what I already said by showing just how Bible scholars such as Professor Anthony Buzzard use false translations in order to deceive people from the truth.
I know that Mr Buzzard also believes many of the modern Bible translations to be wrong and deceiving, but I certainly wasn’t expecting him to send me emails saying that my own translation was false, and that Jesus did not say He was: the beginning of God’s creation, in Revelation 3:14.
But how could my translation of Revelation 3:14 be false? Because I know I was wearing my glasses, and therefore could see clearly as I did what we should all do: translate directly from the oldest Bibles on the planet.
Yet, instead Sir Anthony Buzzard claimed that in Revelation 3:14 Jesus actually said: He is the RULER of GOD’S creation.
Now, if his claim is true, and the simple word ‘Leader’ or ‘Ruler’ is the correct word – having been changed from the word BEGINNING – then Revelation 3:14 saying (of Jesus) that He is the RULER of GOD’S creation, would prove Mr Buzzard’s scholarly work to be correct, showing that he is at least being honest.
As we can clearly see, the simple word ‘Ruler’ alters the whole context and meaning of what Jesus was saying.
Now, please follow my research as we carefully examine the Biblical facts and see if the scribes defined the difference between Arche, Leader, or Ruler, and the word ‘BEGINNING’.
First let us have a look at the scriptures Sir Anthony Buzzard claimed to be the correct translations (as we read, please note that these modern translations use the word ‘Originator’ or ‘Ruler’).
This now changes the whole context, taking us away from the understanding that Jesus was the FIRST BORN and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. Revelation 3:14.
So, let’s now put Sir Anthony Buzzard’s scholarly work to the test, and see if he could be as good as he claims; if we discover that he’s made even one mistake, then he himself is proving to us with his own hands that his own scholarly work has serious academic faults (or, alternatively, that he is simply being dishonest).
If there’s one mistake – or any evidence of dishonesty at all – he will be proving to us that there could be many more mistakes, which would also prove that he’s no different to any others who use wrong and false translations to wrongly support and promote their own false teachings.
First, notice the word ‘Beginning’. Then, note the scriptures that Mr Buzzard claims are the correct translations.
We have seen a very important Biblical fact. We have carefully examined the different Greek words for ‘Beginning’
And ‘Ruler’ to determine whether in Revelation 3:14 Jesus was saying He is the Leader or Ruler of GOD’S creation, or if Jesus was saying He is the Beginning of GOD’S creation or, alternatively, if Jesus was saying He is the witness to the Beginning of GOD’s creation.
We have also discovered that the oldest Greek Bibles prove the Biblical FACTS.
My examination reveals that in this case, the Trinitarian translations are correct, which adds up to why most modern translations have translated Revelation 3:14 with the word ‘Beginning’, and NOT ‘Leader’ or ‘Ruler’, proving that most agree that the translation for the word ‘Beginning’ is correct.
The oldest Greek Bibles prove that certain new translations (see below) are completely FALSE translations, and these Bibles also prove that certain new translations have been twisted by BIASED people in order to promote their false teachings.
In certain cases, ‘Arche’ could also mean ‘Ruler’, as they both share the same semantic subdomain with ‘Archon’. However, in this case – as we have seen during careful examination – my research proves that the scribes CLEARLY defined the difference.
Arche can easily mean Ruler, and Jesus is indeed the ruler of the New Creation, just as we read in Revelation 1:5. However, just as we read in Revelation 3:14, the scribes clearly defined the difference with the Greek word for ‘Ruler’ and ‘Beginning’.
Also, the oldest Greek Bibles prove that people like Anthony Buzzard are NOT translating the Greek manuscripts correctly and are instead clearly using FALSE translations in order to promote their FALSE teachings.
Please notice how the translators of the two oldest Bibles – the Codex Sinaiticus, and the Codex Vaticanus – uniquely specify the DIFFERENCE between the two Greek words of (ἄρχων) for a ‘Ruler’ and the GREEK word (ἀρχὴ) for the ‘Beginning’ in Revelation 3:14.
And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. Revelation 3:14.
So, how does this single scripture prove that MOST denominations have been deceived by false translations?
This sad statement by St John still seems to be very much the case in the world today, with millions claiming to know the true Jesus, when they in fact prove with their own hands that they believe and follow a false Jesus. Two thousand years later, MOST of the world still does NOT know him. Maybe that’s why Jesus said: Many are called, but FEW are chosen. Matthew 22:14.
