Jehovah refers Jesus as:

-Michael (the archangel)
-The Son
-The Only Begotten
-...

And Jesus' Father is Jehovah.

Jehovah is not Jesus' father. Jesus is many times called Jehovah in the Bible.

Also the archangel Michael is completely different from Jesus. Michael is an angel. Jesus is not.

Actually, Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus and God are two different people.
To prove this, Mark 12:28-32 is the account in which Jesus Christ was speaking to his apostles, explaining the commandments. Verse 29 says that "Jehovah our God is one Jehovah", and verse 32 says "He is One, and there is no other besides him."

Jesus and jehovah are the same thing. Really it depends on what you believe.

You see Jesus is Gods son that he sent to die for us. An easier way to explain this would be that Jesus is the fleshly representation of God.

I, being a Christian, believe that Jesus was sent to die for our sins so that we would have the chance to go to heaven. Now I know this is confusing, but they are the same person. Jesus is just as much God as God is himself.

This answer of course is in the perspective of a Christian and is not what everyone believes. To me this is fact to others it may be fiction, but if you want to know more I would be more than happy to talk to you in depth about it. It's up to you though.
Hope this helps. C ;

No. In the scriptures, there are many evidences that Jesus and God are two distinct persons.

There are also references to them being the same person. They are two forms of God.
There is God the son, and God the father.

When Jesus Christ was baptized, Jehovah God plainly said

"This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved."

So Jehovah is Jesus Christ father.

No, God did not say that. It's a fabrication.

Why would God, whom you call Jehovah, an English rendition on the Tetragrammaton, call Jesus by any name? The heavenly trial of Jesus was over with 2,000 years ago, and Jesus was found sinful and sent for eternity to hell, where his sentence is to be fully immersed in boiling excrement, as is befitting his sins. God doesn't just converse with those condemned in hell, so I don't think He calls him by any name. If God speaks of Jesus and refers to him, God would either use his name, Yeshu'a bar Yossef, say "that man", as is sometimes customary, or say Yeshu, which is an acronym befitting Jesus, as it so closely resembles his given name.

As for your other question, we do not really know. Most agree that Joseph was not Jesus' biological father. Some suggest it was the Roman Legionnaire Panthera, although there is a debate whether Mary was having an adulterous affair with him, or was raped. There's some (scant I must admit) evidence for either. At any case, whether it was Panthera, Joseph, or another man, the important thing is that unless Mary was raped, she was committing adultery. Either way Jesus therefore was a momzer.

What makes you say that Jesus is in hell?
Report as
It is written in the Talmud, Gittin 51b-52a. Also, in the 17th century Jesus was summoned from hell by the great Maharal of Prague and told about his torture in boiling excrement in hell. So it is a combination of ancient and modern sources.
Report as
Well I have not read anything in the bible that says that Jesus went to hell. I believe in the Bible, and I guess you believe otherwise. The Bible is also an ancient source that gives evidence to my belief.
Report as
But the Bible does say that whoever Hans from a tree will be eternally damned... Crucifixion was called hanging from a tree at antiquity.
Report as
Hangs from a tree...
Report as
Where does it say that?
Report as
Deuteronomy 21:22-23. And numerous times in the Bible that was the reported punishment for sinners of the appropriate sins. Like Jesus.
Report as
?If a man has committed a sin deserving of death, and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, his body shall not remain overnight on the tree, but you shall surely bury him that day, so that you do not defile the land which the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance; for he who is hanged is accursed of God. (Deuteronomy 21:22, 23 NKJV)
Jesus did not commit a sin deserving of death. In fact he did not sin according to the Bible. Also it says nothing about going to hell or being burned in excrement.
Report as
You can quote semi decently. What you are missing is that the way that a death penalty crime is decided is by a court of law. Similarly, what the Bible says is that if one is convicted of a death penalty sin in a trial and is executed. That's exactly what happened with Jesus. As to whether he sinned or not, of course he did. And the NT records many of his heinous sins. He surely deserved his conviction and execution. Notice that this verse in Deuteronomy is normally translated as saying "hanging from a tree", but you need to remember that it id a Hebrew idiom, not necessarily to be translated literally. The Targum translates "hanging from a tree" as "crucified"! What this verse in Deuteronomy says then is a prophecy if you like, that Jesus will sin, put to trial, crucified and eternally cursed by God for his sins. Before his trial they sent emissaries who traveled throughout the land, seeking anyone who would have anything good to say about Jesus, so that there would be some defense witnesses with good character testimony in modern terminology. The emissaries went through the land for 40 days, and couldn't find even a single person who had anything good to say about Jesus. So he was found guilty and was hanged from a tree on the Passover eve.
Report as
And I gave you the reference for he and boiling excrement. Look it up.
Report as
If they would have sent emissaries then they would have found the many people that Jesus healed and helped throughout his earthly life. The Bible itself says that Jesus was without sin. The reason he came to earth as God in the flesh was to live a sinless life and then die for our sins as the ultimate sacrifice. It says nothing of him going to hell or sinning. In fact Pilate did not want to give him the sentence that was given to Jesus because he found no wrong doing by him.
Report as
They sent the emissaries, but no one had anything good to say about Jesus. As for sins, he sinned enough to be punished by God with a horrible death and eternal damnation. As for Pilate, he wanted enough to sentence Jesus to death by crucifixion. Nothing happened in Judea without Pilate's approval.
Report as
I don't think that there will be any convincing either of us of the opposite side so let's agree to disagree. It was really nice discussing this with you though.
Although I do challenge you to go read the Bible all the way through If you have not. And read it with an open mind. I'll do the same with you're theory.
Report as
It's not my "theory". It's all based in documents and evidence.
Report as
Well mine is also based of documents and evidence. And thus far I have not seen anything in the passages you have me that prove your theory or even mention anything you've said.
Report as
Jesus came here to help you if you would just believe in him being the Christ.
Report as
Did you find the reference from Gittin? And how could Jesus help anyone? He couldn't even help himself!
Report as
Yes I looked at Gittin.
Also have you read the Bible?
It talks Of many instances of Jesus helping people in miraculous ways.
Report as
Yes, Stud, I have read it. Duh! Look also at Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 43(a) for the account in the emissaries who for 40 days were liking for anyone who had anything good to tell about Jesus bug couldn't find anyone. Part of those "good deeds" you are talking about we're not do good. For example, most modern versions distort the story of healing the leper. The actual text days that Jesus was angry with him and threw him out after the healing.
Report as
Ok, but how can you say that Jesus never helped anyone and then say that he did indeed heal someone. That in itself, whether he was angry or not is helping someone. Also I'd like to ask if you believe in what the Bible says or not. Because you can't take parts of it to mold your belief. You either believe it to be true or not. Do you believe the Talmud to be above the Bible as a truth or that the Bible is above the Talmud because all the Talmud is is a commentary of Jews who did not believe Jesus to be the Messiah.
Report as
The Talmud derives its authority from the Bible: Deuteronomy 17:8-13. And of course they did not accept Jesus. They were right in rejecting him, as it was proven he was just a wannabe false messiah. The fact that he healed some people and performed some magic is not proof he did good deeds. Sorcerers of all kinds may have powers. It's not the fact that someone has powers that counts, but the origin of the powers. Christians fail to appreciate the distinction. The Bible records unusual powers, like Pharaoh's magicians who make sticks turn into serpents, or the witch who conjured Samuel's soul to King Saul. The Bible acknowledges that some people may derive powers from idols and false gods. Jesus was rightly charged with sorcery (in addition to other charges). As for your question, I believe in what the Tanach says and in its divine authority. The NT however is a highly corrupt document that was written by interested parties and heavily edited by other interested parties, and it has not authority.
Report as
I don't know if this conversation can really turn into anything. I believe what the Bible says about Jesus and my Bible says he was the son of God who came and died for us. I know you do not believe this, but I think we've had a good conversation and I enjoyed talking with you. If you ever change your mind on who Jesus was then let me know. I'll talk to you for days about that, but we aren't making any headway here. Haha.
Report as
Did you read the b.Sanhed.43a account? Most scholars agree the account is rooted in an account contemporary to the events, with later additions.
Report as
I did read it.
But like I said we aren't coming to an agreement and I can see that neither of us are going to shake from our belief.
