""Actually all of the answers given here are wrong. The scripture is not talking about Jesus at all. The scripture is actually talking about Amen himself.
Revelation 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;
These thing saith the Amen is the point. Jesus is not the 'Amen' - as a matter of fact Amen in and of himself is a deity of ancient Egypt. This deity was the first created from the 'Nun' which was the head god of ancient Egypt. Amen means 'hidden one' in ancient Egypt or 'Invisible God', and thus:
Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
According to the scriptures Jesus was the first born having been born before the foundation of the world. A son is not born before the father nor at the same time as a father which means he was born After his father, through his father and in the image of his father.
This passage and many other were taken from the Old Testament especially dealing with the story of Joshua and his fatherwho was only named once (Nun). Joshua and Jesus is the same name which is the Hebrew word 'Yashua'. Joshua father was 'Nun' which is the high god of the ancient Egyptian deities. His son 'Amen' took over and created the world and humanity.
Back to the scripture - Revelations 3:14 has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus but Amen himself who witnessed the creations of his son Jesus. Now the word 'Jesus' is actually the Hebrew 'Ya`shua' which is literally and Egyptian word(s) for 'Ya = Moon' and 'Shua' sky/moving wind. Thus the name Yashua literally means 'moon travels the sky'.
Another point that should be made as well is that 'Nun' had a son by the name of Shu which was the god of 'air/sky' and thus the name Ya`shua means 'god of the sky'. Nevertheless as Egyptian mythology began to branch off Shu became the son of Amen
The ancient Egyptian religion Amen aka 'Invisible God' had a son named 'Khonsu' which name means 'moon traveler of sky'. His father 'Amen' the invisible one/hidden one sat back and witnessed his son aka the firstborn create and judge his creation. Khonsu is responsible for creation of the planet and humanity alike. And he is also the god of fate and judgment which is exactly what Jesus is supposed to be. ""
In order to understand the story you must understand the origins of the story.
