A full well thought out translation of Luke 6:21, one that seems as accurate as possible, is here, showing the same translation as in most, if not all Bibles ('you will laugh'). Note that 'laughter' should be γέλως, which is noticeably different to γελάσετε and so does not fit into this verse. We can go further, to look at what the original author expected ...

Faber Stapulensis (Lefevre d'Etaples) and Bullinger, in their respective commentaries, both point out the discrepancy. Bullinger goes into some detail and concludes that there must have been two censuses. Calvin likely read both, but goes into greater detail than either.

The Textual Witnesses "Joseph" is found in some translations because the Greek word for Joseph (Ἰωσὴφ), is found in the majority of extant manuscripts. The majority text reading is reflected in the "RP Byzantine Majority Text," the two "Textus Receptus," and the "Greek Orthodox" renderings shown in parallel at Biblehub. Verse 33 is this ("Joseph" bolded): ...

The simplest solution is a simple clarification of a possible misunderstanding of the grammar. Luke 4:14 could more accurately, albeit more clunky, be translated as: "And Jesus, in the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee..." Or "And Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit..." The phrase "to Galilee" εἰς τὴν Γαλιλαίαν is in the Accusative ...

I'd agree with @Jonathan Cell comment. Both healing in Luke 5:14 and 8:56 happened in Jewish cities, while the demon incident happened at Gerasenes/Gerasa (cf to Map of Israel). While there are some uncertainty regarding the exact location of the exorcism, between the city of Gadara (larger, and closer to Sea of Galilee) or Gerasa (or Gerasenes or also ...

The holy spirit is gods own divine magic Consider it a force that can not only enter into your shell so to say,but it always encompasses not only you but the entire earth if you are not in tuned with the holy spirits frequency than it is difficult to receive alone not for Jesus but for men. God said where two are gatherd in his name his spirit will come ...

We can assume Jesus Knew the hearts of men and there are not many men that could be touched by the by the son of god and be healed and not tell, we have to assume that all those who knew the recipients of these miracles would not have to be told. That being said we also have to trust the writer was there as Jesus spoke those word of secrecy, could be the ...

We may notice that Jesus 'saw their faith' and then said 'your sins are forgiven'. The interpretation that will not contradict the doctrines of scripture which has it that anyone with faith in Messiah is forgiven, can only mean this: the words 'your are forgiven' are declarative of the condition that Jesus saw directly resulting from the fact that they had ...

We can now say that the Gospels of Matthew and Luke were substantially based on Mark's Gospel and that additional material the Gospels of Matthew and Luke have in common have come from the hypothetical 'Q' document. John Dominic Crossan, in The Birth of Christianity, page 110-111, speaks of a massive consensus among scholars in favour of Markan priority. He ...

it has been removed because it shows yhwh/jehova is not The Father (Holy Ghost/Spiritum Sanctum) or incarnate in Jesus. Plain and simple. You keep trying to convince yourselves otherwise though.
