    Apple 7:
    "2937 is in the genitive, which means that the Nominative 4416 possesses it.

    Thus, 4416, being assigned to Jesus, means that He is the Creator and controls 2937.

    You can't possibly be this stupid on your own....who is helping you?"
    There are a whole boatload of different types of genitive usage. Here is just one of them:

    Partitive Genitive

    It indicates the whole of which the head noun ('firstborn' in this case) is a part. It requires the head noun to have a nuance indicating 'portion.' (e.g. 'some, one, a part, tenth, etc.) 'Firstborn' has such a 'nuance.'

    You got anything for that?

    Yeah, I thought not.

    I know enough Greek to know you are being dishonest ABOUT the Greek, and that your interpretation of the Greek is about as common as MY interpretation of the Greek.

    'Prototokos' means ‘first’. Not created – but merely ‘first’.

    So, no.

    You DON'T have any Scripture that states "only Greek "Scholars" can have access to the truth.

    And, you are living proof that whatever abilities you have in Greek, you believe a lie.

    1 Cor 1:20-21 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
    21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

    Not quite.
    Prototokos means first born .... it is ktíseoos that means "Created".

    It isn't related. And, you misunderstand it.

    It's your smoke screen.

    You don't have anything that supports your theories.

    You don't have anything that indicates knowing Greek is essential for Salvation.

    Now you keep moving the goal posts, and produced this new, and improved, zinger...

    So...


    Since you can't read Greek, and can only google a reply, how would you even know...?

    Dartman:
    Prototokos means first born .... it is ktíseoos that means "Created".
    Apple7:
    No.
    Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
    firstborn [prototokos]
    From protos and the alternate of tikto; first-born (usually as noun, literally or figuratively) -- firstbegotten(-born).
    see GREEK protos
    see GREEK tikto

    Thayer's Greek Lexicon
    STRONGS NT 2937: κτίσις

    κτίσις, κτίσεως, ἡ (κτίζω), in Greek writings the act of founding, establishing, building, etc. ....
    1. the act of creating, creation: τοῦ κόσμου, Romans 1:20.


    Also here is another partitive genitive: “The firstborn of the dead.” - Rev. 1:5.

    ...... do you REALLY think there's no relationship between my two sentences????

    You REALLY don't see the similarity between "only Greek "Scholars" can have access to the truth".
    And, "knowing Greek is essential for Salvation". ??? No wonder you struggle with correctly interpreting the Greek, you don't do English well!

    Let's look at it this way ..... IF there is such a difference, then I just doubled your chances of finding a Scripture to support your theory!

    So, what 'cha got?

    Just like Tigger2 said....

    ... it is ktíseoos that means "Created".

    NT:2937 ktisis (ktis'-is); from NT:2936; original formation (properly, the act; by implication, the thing, literally or figuratively): KJV - building, creation, creature, ordinance.


    Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
    Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.
    Rom 8:19-22 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
    2 Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
    Gal 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature .
    Col 1:23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
    Heb 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
    2 Peter 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
    Rev 3:14 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;

    Being 'born' is NEVER equated as being 'created'.

    Any lexicon on the planet will tell you this, and overturn your attempting to blend the two...
