This is a very poor source, Salman.  AWAKE is a tract published by a sect/cult called Jehovah's Witnesses.  It is manipulative propaganda and not scholarship.

If you want to discuss discrepancies in biblical manuscripts and translations that is certainly a valid topic in most Christian semniaries around the world.  A good accessible place to start is the book, "Don't Know Much About the Bible", by Kenneth C. Davis.  More advanced scholars will prefer the works of Dr. Bart D. Ehrman, chair of Religious Studies at UNC,  who has made a life long study of this topic. 

Christian scholars have not hidden this knowledge, in fact, we are the ones who have researched and published it.  I'm sure you will agree that reading genuine scholarship on the subject is preferable to reading pulp tracts.

The Watchtower Society, which publishes Awake magazine, is viewed as a cultic system by Orthodox Christians.  They deny many central doctrines of the Christian faith, including the deity of Christ, the omnipresence of God, salvation by grace through faith alone, and also teach that only 144,000 "anointed" believers will ever go to heaven.  All the rest, known as Jonadabs, will have to live on a purified, regenerated earth and serve the anoninted ones.  Jesus is viewed as the Archangel Michael who took on a body, so obviously the Trinity is denied.

The Watchtower Society has its own Bible called The New World Translation, which might better be called the New World Mistranslation.  It incorporates into that book its own doctrinal views by purposely mistranslating various NT vss.

Watch your sources.

Also, the Jehovah Witness (Green Dragon) Bible has been rewritten.  I'm not sure which Bible they are using.  I had a dear friend who was JW and his bible didn't match the KJV I was given by my Methodist Church in a number of places.
