NEW TESTAMENT REFUTATIONS OF THE TRINITY DOCTRINE – Part 25

Satan’s temptation
 If Jesus is God as well as man how could Satan expect to tempt him?  Mark simply states that Jesus was tempted by Satan (1:13) but Matthew (4:1-11) and Luke (4:1-13) elaborate the story.  It is claimed that during Jesus’ alleged forty days’ sojourn in the desert following his baptism by John, Satan tempted him with promises of an earthly kingdom if Jesus would only worship him.

 The trinitarian argument that the second theos in John 1:1 does not require the article to be considered definite can only be motivated by theological considerations, whereas to translate the word theos as “a god” is consistent not only with John’s use of the Philonic Logos, but with the New Testament’s general explanation of Jesus’ relationship to God.

In a study made by Philip B. Harner, an examination was conducted of clauses in which an anarthrous predicate noun precedes the copulative verb.  Harner states that:

C. Colwell offers a grammatical rule explaining the use of the article with a predicate nominative in the Greek New Testament.22 This rule seems to justify the trinitarian translation of John 1:1.  Colwell says:
A definite predicate nominative has the article when it follows the verb; it does not have the article when it precedes the verb.  Of course, this can be claimed as a rule only after it has been shown to describe the usage of the Greek New Testament as a whole or in large part. . . .

John 1:1
 It is in John 1:1 that the nature of the Logos (the Word) is explicitly stated.  The first verse of John, as translated in the King James Version, reads:  “In the beginning was the Word [ho logos], and the Word was with God [ton theon, accusative case of ho theos], and the Word was God [theos]” (John 1:1).
