C.T.Russell was never a Jehovah`s Witness ,his emphasis was on Jesus ,with his magazine "Zions WatchTower and Herald of Christs Presence" first published in 1879 ? Obviously he was a zionist and believed that Jesus had returned in 1874. And that Armageddon was to happen in 1914 .
The governing body of Jehovah`s Witnesses and their revision of early history like to hide those facts.
Joseph F.Rutherford took a new turn by changing the name of C.T.Russells followers ,the" International Bible Students Association" I.B.S.A. to the new name "Jehovah`s Witnesses" distancing himself from Russell`s teachings and also christendoms religions and changing the name of the magazine to " The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah`s Kingdom " taking the emphasis of Jesus.
Where in the Christian Greek Scriptures / New Testament are followers of Jesus instructed to be witnesses of Jehovah`s Kingdom ?
