Perhaps the most important verse in this brief exchange is the following verse,(vs 50) And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us. It's apparent that this individual saw Jesus cast out demons, and saw the disciples cast out demons; what he did not see was the Scribes and Pharisees cast out demons. The key passage ...

The language of Luke 10:18 "ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ πεσόντα" echoes the Language of Isa 14:12 in the LXX "ἐξέπεσεν ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ". In the excellent book "Commentary on the New Testament use of the Old Testement" (Beale & Carson) it is pointed out that Jewish tradition also applies Is 14:12 to the fall of Satan as Jesus Christ does, they cite: 2 Enoch 29:3 ...

There were indeed many gospels, although this is not really what the author of Luke's Gospel is saying. He knew of Mark's Gospel, as it has been established by critical scholars that this was a major source used in compiling Luke. He also knew of the hypothetical 'Q' document, sometimes known as the 'Q' Gospel, as that was also a source he used. Matthew's ...

The word 'Gospel' is never applied to the records of Jesus' life by the Bible its self, rather it seems that the word is used of the message proclaimed, see for example: Matt. 4:23, Matt. 9:35, Matt. 11:5, Matt. 24:14, Matt. 26:13, Mk. 1:1, 14-15, Mk. 13:10, Mk. 14:9, Mk. 16:15, Lk. 4:18, Lk. 7:22, Lk. 9:6, Lk. 20:1, Acts 8:25, Acts 14:7, 21, Acts 15:7, Acts ...

Likely yes. There are extant supposed "gospels" that are not considered Canon. Early Fathers of the Church mention other gospels such as an alleged Gospel to Hebrews, written in 2nd Temple Hebrew, which may have existed, and may have been lost in the great Alexandrian fire.

Consider the last clause of the verse "nor may those cross over from there to us." from μηδὲ ἐκεῖθεν πρὸς ἡμᾶς διαπερῶσιν. That is a plural pronoun. It seems logical to assume that the 'you' and the 'those' are the same group of people which strongly implies that the rich man was not alone on his side of the gulf. So the 'you' must refer to the people in ...

There is a distinct difference between a mere "angel" and an "Angel of the Lord." With this knowledge, we can better understand why in particular, the Angel of the Lord(AOTL) stood at the right hand of the altar. This is to draw attention to His divinity. When the AOTL makes an appearance, this signifies that a christophany has occurred. It is Jesus who ...

The question was asked: "Why would Mary and Joseph offer “ "a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons" in Luke 2:24?" For clarification in Lev 12:2-4 "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be ...

A plural term could allude to the people Jesus speaks about several verses away in verse 31. (Please keep in mind I do not read Greek and am relying upon you for that.) Jesus alludes to them in Luke 16:31, people who will not listen to Moses or the prophets and who will not be impressed even if someone rises from the dead. The intention may be to place the ...
