    Okay, experts agree that the Holy Bible we have today has been edited over the centuries. Fine. However, I found an interesting verse that some people (Christians) believe it is odd, strange and added/changed. It is Revelation 3:14 that reads: "And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God." When I read this, I was like: "What?!? The "beginning of the creation of God," as if in God "was created by Amen?!?" I was not satisfied with this, so I looked up my Bosnian translation, and this is what that says: "And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write: these things saith Amen, the faithful and true witness, the Creator of the God's creation" (or can be taken as "God's being"). So, I am confused: according to this, did Amen "God," "God's creation" or "God's being?"
    This link here seems to indicate that Greek version of the Bible also states that Amen was the beginning of the creation of God: http://biblehub.com/text/revelation/3-14.htm

    What?!?

    Some claim that the original verse of Revelation 3:14 is: "And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning before the creation."

    I am no expert in this area but, I read "the beginning of the creation of God." the same as the beginning of God's creation "

    When I tried to look up a translation to English, I found so many different versions. It is confusing.


    Also 'Amen' is a confirmation meaning ' so be it'.
    I know Jews and Christians use the word amen to agree with the prayer leader in prayer such as grace after meals etc.

    Hi Amica –
    I don't see a problem with this. It's God's creation, the work is His?

    I think she is reading it as 'at the point when God was created'.
