Koine Greek Analysis: Did the Disciples Worship Jesus p? Ali Ataie.
Trinitarian Christians claim the disciples worshipped Jesus p yet we see a linguistic analysis of the Greek shows us something different. The word in question proskuneo does no refer to worship. Proskuneo is a reference to kissing the hand (i.e. showing reverence and respect, not worship). In the Bible the same verb, proskuneo, is used to show respect to Jewish priests and Angels.
The Greek word for worship which is only due to God is latreuo.
