I thought I addressed the statement in the previous post. "What we have here in my view is a typical well-intentioned yet foolish mistake in trying to protect the divinity of Christ". Jesus Christ said in Acts after his resurrection, Acts1:6 So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” ...

1Tim.2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the 'man' Christ Jesus. Num.23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Acts1:4 And being assembled together with them, He(Jesus) commanded them not to ...

This is a prayer. Prayer assumes that the actions of God are not inevitable. Our prayers make a difference to the outcome. In this sense the leading of God is something specifically to be requested. And what we are requesting is for God to lead us in a path that avoids temptation - if that isn't pushing the text too hard.I can't see this as if God is about ...

Please correct me if I am wrong, but is the Lord simply asking us not to make judgement as opposed to judge. As we have seen, there is an instance when Jesus commended the person for judging correctly. So to not judge would not be biblical, would it? Every time we assess a situation - example we say "I think he did steal or he we may say I think he did not" ...

Question Restatement, part 1: Were the Guards that guarded Jesus' tomb Pilate's Guards, or the Jews? (Conclusion at Bottom.) Question Restatement, part 2: Is there an indication, in the Greek Syntax, that Pilate may have said, "Have a guard", (Imperative Mood), rather than "You already have a guard", (Indicative Mood)? To show that Pilate sent his ...

Archibald Thomas Robertson in his Word Pictures of the New Testament has a nice explanation, that the gates of Hades will not be able to overcome or imprison the church i.e. "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" (1 Corinthians 15:55, KJV) because Christ led captivity captive (Ephesians 4:8) when he descended into Hades then rose ...

RE: (Aramaic Bible in Plain English) "gates of Sheol will not withstand it". There isn’t much support for the rendering you found in the greek text. It may be a viable rendering of a syriac version. Not sure which syriac version is being translated. NRSV Matt. 16:18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates ...

To translate the so-called "exceptive clauses" of Matthew 5:32 and 19:9 as "unless the marriage is unlawful" (i.e., invalid) is a good translation, although it is not a faithful word-for-word translation. The word used in Greek is πορνεία (porneia), which means anything related to prostitutes and sexual immorality (wantonness, uncleanliness, impure ...

I understand @Peter’s question to apply to the reading of the parenthetical phrase in Mt.5:32 (and 19:9), not its implication on the theology of divorce. Toward that end, the preface to the first edition of the NABRE New Testament states: “Parentheses are used, as ordinarily in English, as a punctuation device. Material they enclose is in no sense ...

You've got it all wrong because you are answering the eye and hand instructions from the viewpoint of a Pharisee. First, there was not a single Christian at the Sermon on the Mount. Second, it was still the Old Testament/Covenant. Jesus was speaking to Jews who knew nothing else for getting right with God than their conduct. Jesus was shortly to introduce ...

I will limit my comments to the question is the “inclusive” reading of οἱ δὲ grammatically impossible rather than merely improbable which is the majority view: Stephanie Black objects to Grayston's approach, observing that οἱ δὲ signals discontinuity and would be highly unlikely if there were continuity of subject with the previous sentence. (Stephanie ...
