And that seems to agree with the time in the second century and beyond, when there were fierce debates and arguments over Jesus divinity, that caused biased scribes to change John 1:18, to make Jesus into GOD and eventually into a TRINITY God.
Could this be another reason why all books and manuscripts of Arius were ordered to be confiscated and consigned to the flames while any persons found possessing them were to be executed? Did the Arius have the correct manuscripts? which would explain why the first Trinitrains wanted Arius books utterly destroyed.
Could this also explain why Constantine rewrote 50 new Bibles, and possibly, be in the same time frame where the biased scribes altered verses to make Jesus into GOD, to promote their false doctrine?
If this is the case, then how many more verses are there that have been altered to deceive people into believing Jesus is THE GOD?
Just as interesting to read that a certain number of the Church Fathers, such as Irenaeus, Clement and Tertullian, were quoting the verse in John 1:18, saying? “Son,” and NOT “God.”
It is also interesting that the belief of biased scribes altering the scriptures to make Jesus into GOD, is inline with what one of history’s greatest scientist, and Bible scholar Sir Isaac Newton believed when he wrote over a million words on theology and biblical studies.
On the other hand, as I said in my last article, there are other verses where Jesus is referred to as “God,” which I find Trinitarians and Oneness Pentecostals love to point out to prove Jesus is GOD, instead of understanding others are called God or gods, including, angels, and even glorified members of the Church, and even Satan is referred to as the God of this world.
But sadly for those who promote this false doctrine reveal with their own hands their bad fruits, because when they teach Jesus is GOD, they then contradict what they claim to believe that there is only one GOD, because in their other hand they are trying to prove there are TWO GODS, instead of ONE GOD, which completely contradicts their own faith and the word of GOD.
The Biblical fact is Jesus always taught He and His father were always two separate divine beings, who are NOT one GOD but ONE in complete agreement, harmony, and purpose, just as he desires to make all God’s children ONE substance.
The biblical fact is, Jesus always taught we are to believe He is the SON of His Father GOD, John 3:16, and His GOD is the only one true GOD which is eternal life, John 17:3, Mark 12:29, and when we believe Jesus simple teachings we see Jesus does not contradict His own teachings, just as we do not when we truly believe what Jesus taught, that He is the SON of the ONE TRUE GOD.
I will leave you with the research by Bible scholars below in hope to encourage you to do your own research.

May GOD almighty bless those who desire to know the truth of GOD and His one and only begotten SON, and be saved and set FREE. Amen.
Metzger gives the D rating, very unlikely to be right, to theos.
Almost certainly that was a push by “orthodoxy” to corrupt the text.
Jesus cannot be GOD of course since that would make two GODs and destroy the Bible!
