More useless words?
Did you note quotes -> "expert"?
They all have the meaning of vocative, and some of the have "O" in English translation.None of your verses like Rev 15:3 have a defacto use of the Article as a Vocative. The NIV at least is honest about it.
Later, don't change the subject.And like I said, even Justin Martyr agreed that Jesus was MADE alongside the rest of the angels, just higher rank but of the same substance. It's not my view alone.
Just pick your choice. You're mentioning 3 different meanings, again, opposing to tens of translations and literature.And I've yet to see ...
A thread isn't a reference.
Well, then, I think we can rest our case. Since in Revelation Jesus refers to himself as the Almighty, not to mention the first and the last as God is called in Isaiah. So, Jesus did, indeed say he is God.
This is a commentary.You really...
For the Lamb, which is in the midst of the throne,.... See Re 5:6; not before the throne, as the great multitude are said to be, Re 7:9; nor round about it, as the angels in Re 7:11; but in the midst of it, being equal to him that sits upon it; sitting on the same throne with him, and having the same power and authority,
That does not negate the fact that Jesus called himself the Almighty and the first and the last, which are names of God. One must also remember Jesus' (God the Son) relationship to God the Father. Jesus said nobody knows the day nor hour of his return except the Father. Even Jesus does not know, only the Father. See, within the Godhead, the Son, while being in the Father and completely God, is obedient (unto death) to the Father. And Jesus is the "only begotten Son of God", begotten not made, like angels and men.If it were that easy we all would be in agreement.....but the very beginning of that book says.....
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John.
If God already possessed it then he would have to give it to himself.....
Shermana,you haven't a clue. You haven't any idea of how to understand the most difficult Book [ along with Daniel ] it contains only apocalyptic literature, so unless your a Church Theologian ,or a "teacher with authority" ,you might as well forget attempting to getting correct.
And no , you are wrong , God is speaking to John of Patmos , and by the way, this John never made claims of being John one of the apostles
You don't have to take my word on it , for I'm neither a Theologian or teacher with authority, but I study their teachings which come directly up through time from Jesus via His Apostles/ successors.
He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John.
That does not negate the fact that Jesus called himself the Almighty and the first and the last, which are names of God.
Once you understand that angels are clearly called gods such as in Psalm 136:2 and 82:1, Hebrews 1:8 makes more sense. (It also helps if you know its a passage from Psalms).
Who is "The god of this age" in 2 Corinthians 4:4?
