Answer: Yes, it is explicitly mentioned that Jesus loved someone. In John 13:23, it is written, Now there was one of his disciples reclining on Jesus' bosom, whom Jesus loved. ἦν δέ ἀνακείμενος εἷς τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ ὃν ἠγάπα ὁ Ἰησοῦς TR, 1550 This particular disciple is often referred to as "the beloved disciple." However, ...

Since the passage in question is a spurious addition by Trinitarians it is irrelevant. http://www.biblicalunitarian.com/verses/matthew-28-19 It should be noted that while Trinitarian translators obscure the fact, in the Greek there is no fixed formula of "the Holy Spirit": Matt 12:31 ...του πνευματος... Mark 3:29 ...τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἅγιον... Luke 4:1 ...

John 12:4 Then sayeth one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him. This would make Judas his son, but Judas was no brother of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. What do you do with that? And was Simon the Pharisee or was that a completely different story with a sinner woman whose faith hath saved her and Jesus said go in peace. Luke ...

The Cross-God's Eternal Plan for Man's Redemption To even approach an answer to this question, one must survey the entire scope of Scripture-from Genesis to Revelations, in order to determine the "why" of the cross. Jesus said in Luke 24:25-27, Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26 Ought ...

The crucifixion of Jesus is the seminal event in human history. It was God’s plan: this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. (Acts 2:23 ESV) Why would God’s plan include 2 others being crucified at the same time as Jesus? Why not a single cross for the entire ...

Why would Jesus at first refuse the comfort of alcohol, and then later not refuse it? Three considerations: was it alcohol; was it comforting; did he refuse it? "Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 'Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to take him down,' he said." (Mark ...

Answer: This answer relies on this question: In Luke 22:16: Does the Syntax Indicate if Jesus Was not Going to Eat THAT Passover? In the Gospels, Jesus said that he greatly desired to eat the Passover, but that he wouldn't. One of the ordinances of Passover was to eat bitter herbs, "Myrrh" - which is what seem to have been given to him the first time - ...

1. Question Restatement Was Crucifying Someone on the Sabbath against Jewish Law? Why were there two thieves on the Cross? 2. Coincidence, Or Significance? I had avoided this question - because: A.) It appeared to be looking for symbology; B.) Or, perhaps as simple as: "two were required because the prophecy indicated a plurality", but ... Then ...

“… bringing in other passages to bear on this issue, what relevant related texts do we have… If it’s not self evident, when do we step back and apply other methods and what are those in this case?” This is the question I'm going to attempt to answer. For me, the relevant texts fall within this same time frame: Everything Christ said on the cross. From a ...

Short and simple answer. The two thieves were crucified with Jesus because they were arrested with him in the garden of gethsemane. According to Mark 14:43, Judas came with a great multitude that was heavily armed. With such a large group of soldiers, it's unlikely that everyone except for Jesus escaped. Two 'thieves' or rebels were captured also. The ...

Jesus' crucifixion is clearly the centerpiece, the locus and telos of God's work of redemption. It is the defining moment of the Christian faith. And it is at this point, the cross, where man is judged: He is either forgiven by the Christ, or dies in his sins. This is a theological interpretation of the crucifixion as a whole, where the atonement for sin is ...

1. "Jesus was crucified during the critical feast of Passover (mistakenly called the Feast of Unleavened Bread because they are so close in time to each other)." The Passover is the first day of the seven day Feast of Unleavened Bread. 1 Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 “This month shall be your beginning of months; ...

Preamble The Passover Feast is not mistakenly called the Feast of unleavened bread. The Passover meal in the evening hours of Nisan 14 (the end of the day) and the Feast of unleavened Bread that is kept from the evening of Nisan 14 (the beginning of the day) up until the evening of Nisan 21 (the beginning of the day), TOGETHER, comprise the perpetual ...
