    There is a technicality with the use of the word translated as "also" in the Greek. One problem people find is due to it's use in the English language. There is a certain tendency to devalue what comes after the word "also" in English. But with the Greek it can be cumulative.

    G2532

    καί

    kai

    kahee

    Apparently a primary particle, having a copulative and sometimes also a cumulative force; and, also, even, so, then, too, etc.; often used in connection (or composition) with other particles or small words: - and, also, both, but, even, for, if, indeed, likewise, moreover, or, so, that, then, therefore, when, yea, yet.

    I became aware of this because of something else Jesus said, about the woman who used her most prized possession in apparent waste on him. But Jesus said this:

    Matthew 26:13

    Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

    Thereby raising what the woman did to the level of the Gospel, with the same frequency.

    EDIT: So to tie it in to your question (lol), Jesus wasn't denying being God. He was speaking as the servant of God, which was his station, or job, to fulfill what he was supposed to be doing. They could see him there in front of them, and wasn't on a throne yet (to be worshiped as other scriptures show). He was talking as that Perfect Servant revealed in Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53 amongst others.

    The use of the word "also" is not in the sense of addition. If you believe in God, then you believe in Jesus Christ, since Jesus is God.

    Very good reasonable question and the answer is Jesus is NOT God Jesus is the son of God and Jehovah Witnesses have been teaching this from the beginning and giving Bible proof as such as this one. To learn more visit www.watchtower.org or one of our local Kingdom Halls and speak to any Bible teacher there. Look up also Heb 12:2 and many other scriptures that support they are separate.

(NWT)" that's no longer superb suited. The KJV blasphemously extra the words "in heaven, the daddy, the notice, and the Holy Ghost: and those 3 are one. And there are 3 that bear witness in earth" to a million John 5:7, 8 to help the fake and unsupportable trinity dogma. The NWT renders it properly.

    Check it in different translations, and the original Hebrew, because it could just be a translation issue, otherwise you have an interesting point.
