Paul is actually making the exact same point as John 14:6, he just takes a while to get there. If you look at the first part of Romans, Paul is building a case towards that is well summarized by Romans 3:23: "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". He starts by breaking the world into two groups: Those with the law and those without the ...

my answer is exactly that you must die to yourself. When can there be any type of metamorphosis without their first being a death and a falling away of the outer husk, which represents the sin in our lives, or our harden hearts or our attitude or nature. Agronomic when a seed is placed in the ground the hard protective shell around what's on the inside falls ...

But about those converted from non-Israelite nations that having trusted in the good news, we (Apostles and Elders in Jerusalem) wrote a letter having judged that none of these things (of the law), they should be saving (They should not observe), if not, they should they are saving as much as possible from what is sacrificed to idols, blood, strangled and ...

The Bible says that Jesus “was put to death in the flesh but made alive [resurrected] in the spirit.”—1 Peter 3:18; Acts 13:34; 1 Corinthians 15:45; 2 Corinthians 5:16. Jesus himself said he would give up his flesh as a ransom for all (John 6:51; Matthew 20:28) If he took on his flesh or body again that had died the ransom would be canceled. This didn't ...

Pilate told them, “Take him yourselves and pass judgment on him according to your own law!” The Jewish leaders replied, “We cannot legally put anyone to death.” (Jo 18:31 [NET]) Jesus had escaped from a stoning in John 8:59. Then they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out from the temple area. (Jo 8:59 [NET]) After a time ...

The inspiration was presumably drawn from Leviticus 24:16: וְנֹקֵ֤ב שֵׁם־יְהוָה֙ מ֣וֹת יוּמָ֔ת / רָג֥וֹם יִרְגְּמוּ־ב֖וֹ כָּל־הָעֵדָ֑ה wĕnōqēb šēm-yhwh môt yûmāt / rāgôm yirgĕmû-bô kol-hāʿēdâ Whoever blasphemes the name of the LORD shall surely be put to death. / All the congregation shall stone him. (ESV) This comes into the Greek (LXX Rahlfs | ...

I think this was a message of wisdom to his disciples as to how to go about their work on earth. As we know it, day (light) and night (darkness) take their turns over the earth, and it pleases God to make it so. Therefore, it is so important that we as Christians work with the times (day of course). Spiritually speaking darkness can be over a land while ...

There are a number of answers based on what tools are used to analyze the text. Having said that, if we compare the witnesses used by the Synoptic writers with the account in the Gospel of John, we find very tight agreement. Each one of the Synoptic gospels agree that later, after several hours of Jesus hanging on the cross, the mother of Jesus was ...

John 19:34 has a parallel in 1 John 5:8, so if there was a redaction it would probably have occurred in both passages. In any case, John 19:32-36 makes quite good sense even without the reference to blood and water. In the nineteenth century, a number of scholars interpreted the 'blood and water' of this passage as symbolic of a "double cleansing and ...

Gail R. O'Day (Women's Bible Commentary, page 527) points out that it is only in John's Gospel that Mary, along with Mary Magdalene and the beloved disciple are at the foot of the cross - in the Synoptics, those of Jesus' acquaintance watch from afar off. Mary Magdalene is a marker, because each of the Synoptics specifically states that she was one of those ...
