There are two reasonable explanations that may apply here. First, when ground is watered, that water both drains into the ground and evaporates back into the air. The surface of the ground does not forever remain wet from a mist. So that watering by mist occurred does not mean dust did not come again. The text in Gen 2:6 is not explicit as to exactly when ...

Adam was to literally die the same day he and his wife would eat that fruit. Such was the law of God. However, on the same day that Adam and Eve ate the fruit, God killed an animal (with whose furs He cloethed the couple) in the sinning's couple stead.

I'm of the opinion that θανατος and αδης are to be understood as two Greco-Roman deities. αδης is well known as the keeper of the underworld. While I'm not aware of any particular extant references in secular literature to θανατος but it seems pretty clear that both θανατος and αδης are person's in Revelation 20:13-14 as they "surrender" the dead and then ...

For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Hebrews 10:4, ESV Hebrews 10:4 means something more than atonement by the phrase 'take away sins'. This verse is in the central section of Hebrews concerning the superiority of the priesthood of Jesus (chapters 8-10). Jeremiah 31 is quoted at length twice in this section which is ...
