John 1:1,2,12,13 God is THEOS!
It is not HO-THEOS or TO-THEOS!
Antichristian islam is making the same argument the antichristian Jehovah’s Witnesses use to try to disprove Jesus’ divinity.
This argument falls short, because Jesus is God and satan is “a god”.
The capital “G” is used for Jesus, because Jesus is GOD, and satan is “a god”, just as allah is “a god”.
John 1:1 does not use “a god”, because Jesus is God, and when you read John 1:3,10 it is clear that Jesus is God, not “a god”, because God is the Creator, and verses 3 & 10 make it very clear that the Word is the Creator.
And, then, in John 1:14 we can clearly see the Word was made flesh.
This is explicitly talking about Jesus Christ.
All five times the English Word “God” is used in John 1:1,2,12,13 was translated from the Greek word “THEOS” or “THEH’-OS”.
Strong’s Numbers for God in John 1:1 is the same for both instances for God, which is “G2316“.
What I would like to know is what Greek translation uses “HO-THEOS” and “TO-THEOS”, because Strong’s Numbers “G2316” makes it clear that the original Greek word is “THEOS”, NOT “HO-THEOS” nor “TO-THEOS”.
And, even IF HO-THEOS” and “TO-THEOS” were used, which it is clear they are NOT used, when referring to God, the words would still be translated to a capital “G”.
I have included the verses in John which show and confirm that Jesus is God!
Those trying to prove Jesus is not God forsake and neglect observing and mentioning John 1:3,10.
John 1:10 makes it very clear that He who is the “Word” was “IN THE WORLD“, and it is Jesus Christ who was “IN THE WORLD“!
Also, He who was in the world MADE THE WORLD!
I have also supplied the Strong’s Number “G2316“.
In conclusion, we see that the Word is God, and the Word is the Creator, and the Word was MADE flesh!

John 1:1-3, 10-15 KJV
1 In the beginning was the Word (JESUS CHRIST), and the Word was with God (G2316), and the Word was God (G2316).
2 The same was in the beginning with God (G2316).
3 All things were made by him (JESUS); and without him was not any thing made that was made.
10 He (JESUS) was in the world, and THE WORLD WAS MADE BY HIM, and the world knew him not.
11 He (JESUS) came unto HIS OWN, and HIS OWN received him not.
12 But as many as received HIM (JESUS CHRIST), to them gave he power to become the sons of God (G2316), even to them that BELIEVE ON HIS NAME (JESUS):
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God (G2316).
14 And the Word (JESUS) was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15 John bare witness of him (JESUS), and cried, saying, This was HE (JESUS) of whom I spake, HE that cometh after me is preferred before me: FOR HE (JESUS CHRIST) WAS BEFORE ME.
(John was born 6 months BEFORE Jesus was born!)
(Even so, Jesus existed long BEFORE John was born!)
