Does John 1:18 call Jesus "God?"
by David Maas [4 pages]

John 1:18 most likely originally read “only begotten Son,” not “only begotten God.” There is strong Greek manuscript evidence supporting this reading and it is in line with John’s usage elsewhere. The proposed reading “only begotten god” raises serious theological problems that some translators have attempted to solve with paraphrases such as “one and only god” and “unique god.” Each proposed solution only heightens the theological and logical problems.
