Therefore is it right that we PROSKUNEW, that is worship Jesus as the Risen
Lord and Saviour. If the Jehovah's Witness recognise Jesus as "a god", then
the Biblical claims concerning Jesus needs to be rethought. >>

The JWs may argue, whatever the meaning of PROSKUNEW may be, that Jesus
was worshipped as the anointed one (the king), being thus God's
representative without being God, and point for instance to 1 Chron.29:20,
where the Jews worshipped YHWH and the king (David) - both God and the king
are the objects of the same action. So I do not think that Greek helps to
prove/disprove the point made.
