The church "Christ" is far different in texture from the HaMashiach haemes, the true Messiah. The Peshitta Aramaic is liberating. The problem with Christianity is its diverse contradictions because it stems from Babylon which means confusion (caused). The namby pamby church Christ has a fit like some spoiled, misguided child boo hooing his fate. WHY HAST ...

The most accurate English Bible should do the same -contrary to popular belief the Jews did use the name and pronounced it. Abraham, Moses, Jesus, they all knew and used the name of God. The New World Translation (NWT) is a fantastic modern English translation that puts the ...

The Hebrews reads הָֽאָדָ֖ם note the article הָֽ ('the') before אָדָם ('man', 'mankind', 'Adam'). Going back to Gen 1:27 we read: So God created man ( אֶת־הָֽאָדָם֙ )in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. ( NKJ) Notice that it is exactly the same term "the man" in both cases (though this is obscured ...

This is not the "same word" repeated and used in different ways. These are homonyms, i.e., two different words: the first אֶת־ is the sign of the definite direct object (= I. אֵת at link -- as discussed in relation to Genesis 1), which is untranslatable -- there is no English equivalent.

Rregardless if this is a "Rhinoceros" or not, the people by and for whom it was originally written knew exactly what the animal was, and for them it was not fiction or mythology, but a REAL flesh and blood animal. Therefore we're left with one of two possibilities: "Unicorns" as English speakers do or DID understand them exist (the Panda was thought to ...

If you further read the text in 1 Samuel 2:5, AFTER Hannah leaves Samuel with Eli and when she is praising the Lord she says, "She who was barren has borne seven children, but she who has many sons pines away." Hannah is referring to herself in the first part of that sentence, so by the time she committed Samuel to the Lord as a servant of the priest (which ...

I may be able to answer the "window" part. It is believed to be one very long window that stretches all around the ark. That would make sense because God didn't tell Noah where to build it exactly, he only told Noah how far from the top to build it. This design of a window is useful to act as a ventilation window to get rid of toxic gasses and to let light ...
