Only one Savior? A problem for Jehovah Witnesses’ concept of Jesus

The primary difference between Jehovah Witnesses (hereafter, JW) and orthodox Christianity is that JW believe Jesus is a created being while orthodox Christians believe he is God. JW claim that Jesus is a god, but not thee God. However, the bible is clear that Jesus is God. Previously, I have examined JW reasoning on John 1:1, here I will give a different example of why we know Jesus is God.

Isaiah 43:11 states, “I—I am Jehovah, and besides me there is no savior.” (New World Translation)

This means that Jehovah is the only Saviour. There are no others that can fulfill the role as savior. But we will see that Jesus is also a savior. Luke 2:11 states, “For today there was born to you in David’s city a savior, who is Christ the Lord” (NWT). Now, a savior was born. If a savior was born only two conclusion can be made. Either the bible contradicts itself or Jesus Christ is Jehovah.
