Thanks for a detailed and well thought out presentation. I think that most witnesses are not really students of the bible and therefore most of what you have said here they will have missed. Yes, that is hard to believe, but true. They don't appreciate the elevated position that was conferred upon Jesus after his resurrection. The plain statements of scripture bare this out. In the mind of a JW, they feel that if they where to show this type of admiration and acknowledgment of the Son, this would somehow be immediately diminishing the same for the Father. Through deep study my own understanding of Jesus role has been magnified, though I don't espouse a trinitarian position.
