I was going to make the point that JWs do not believe Jesus, on Earth, was Michael the Archangel, but JW Hannah J Paul beat me to it. For clarification, they believe the Word (of Jn. 1:1) was created as the archangel Michael, but that he was changed to be no more than a human for the time of Jesus on Earth, and that the spirit of the archangel Michael re-entered the spirit that was resurrected from the tomb. Technically, Jesus was never Michael the Archangel when Jesus was on Earth.
Now, that's important to know because this is the way JWs suppose they get round the clear biblical prohibition on humans worshipping angels. But when it comes to Revelation 1:17 they have to engage in semantics tricks, for the man, John, falls down before the resurrected Christ, yet when he tries to do that before angels, the angels rebuke John and forbid it.
The semantics trick has to do with what the Greek word proskenoo means. Sometimes it means worship, but at other times context shows it means respectful bowing before a human. Therefore, the JW holy book renders Mat. 14:33 as obeisance, and not worship in their NWT. I'm not going to go into that apart from pointing out that elderly "Jacob worshipped leaning on the top of his staff" so prostration is not the point of proskenoo (Heb. 11:21). I simply conclude by saying the JWs deny the disciples worshipped Jesus in that verse (or any other verse) because they claim He was nothing more than a sinless human when on Earth, and a created angel prior to, and after that. You see the hoops they have to jump through because of denying the biblical fact that the Son of God was never created?
