What does Thomas call Jesus in John 20:28? What do the Jehovah's Witnesses think Thomas called Jesus here?
John 20:28. Here Thomas calls Jesus, "My Lord and my God." (Same in the NWT). Ask the JW's, Who did Thomas come to believe that Jesus was?
It would have been blasphemy for Jesus to accept the title of God, if he was not God. Wouldn't Jesus have rebuked Thomas immediately for his words if they were not true!?

"Lord and my God"
very easy to see and still not everyone can see it because they have been trained to not see the truth.

I think the JW argument is that Thomas is not calling Jesus God, but rather referring to Jehovah.
My Lord (Jesus) and my God (Jehovah).
I think that is what I was told.

JESUS tells EVERYONE who HE is THROUGHOUT the ENTIRE WORD of GOD
For HE is the WORD of GOD
and HE IS GOD........
FROM Genesis to Revelations
the Entire BIBLE is Written about HIM
""Behold in the VOLUME of the BOOK it SPEAKS of ME""
Jesus showed ""ALL"" He is GOD
His disciples Knew it
and HIS enemies Knew It and called Him a Blasphemer for it
And even TODAY HE reveals HIMSELF to the Believer
FOR WHO HE IS
And if they Dont Know who HE IS
THEY are not of HIM !!
No matter the ""christian"" label they TRY and wear !!
IF YOU DONT KNOW GOD
and WHO He is.....YOU DONT HAVE HIM !!!
Its time the TRUTH was Told and Bluntley and stop this
go to a building learn mans doctrines and traditions and teachings and call Yourself Saved ...and NOT know who SAVED YOU ???
IF YOU dont know God and JESUS IS GOD
YOU dont have HIM on the inside nor His Spirit or His Word
WHOM HE IS.............
NO matter what Name is above YOUR doors
or what YOU THINK
GODS WORD says WHO HE IS
and WHAT ONE MUST DO and BE
and if that dont Add up
NEITHER DO YOU !!!
This answer isnt towards the questioner ,
but those who seem to answer it without TRUTH !!!
Thomas KNEW WHO GOD WAS
and said so , "" MY LORD and MY GOD ""
PURE and SIMPLE
Wish people would read the BIBLE for what it says
and not mans doctrines and traditions and denominational
HE is Coming Back
which virgin will you be a part of ::
The 5 WISE or the 5 FOOLISH ???
COME out from among the WORLD and BE SEPERATE
from its dogma , teachings , doctrines , traditions , customs,
and its Deciets.......and READ the WORD of GOD for yourselfs and KNOW who GOD IS...not what a mans opinion of it is............WAKE-UP !!!!!!!!! For ALL JW's, MORMONS , Catholics , Baptist , Protestant , Church of God , Church of Christ , church of this and church of that..........GET OUT OF THE WORLDLEY TRADITIONS and MANS TRADITIONS
and GET IN GODS WORD
AND KNOW HE IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS
IN THE VOLUME OF THE BOOK !!!!!!
(ALL capitalized letters is for affect.....not anger)
It says to CRY ALOUD and SPARE NOT !!!!!
Its time so called christians Wake Up to the TRUTH
of GODS WORD , not a mans !!!Source(s): GODS WORD TRUTH WISDOM LIFE

Jesus never said anywhere in the bible that he was God, although he did often speak of God as his father. It was always someone else who referred to Jesus as God. He didn't answer when he was about to be crucified, that's very telling.Source(s): js
