The JW's have had to revise their understanding of the 144,000 several times. The original understanding was that when the JW gained 144,000 members Jesus would come again, and they would all go to heaven. When they got to member 144,001 and nothing happened a little theological tinkering had to take place. ntexasdude, to clarify, the verse you are speaking of is John 1:1. I once compared my Greek New Testament with a Jehovah Witness's Bible, going over what each word meant, and how "a God" was a mistranslation. He was very interested. His partner decided it was time for them to go. Tyralak, are you JW?
