No, they are not synonymous. In way of background, we note that the Hebrew rûaḥ is commonly rendered by the Greek pneuma, both commonly rendered by the English spirit. The OP is wondering why, in Isaiah 40:13, the translator has chosen the Greek nous ("mind") rather than the more common pneuma ("spirit"). Despite the default translations rûaḥ ↔ ...

I agree with the general consensus here that there probably isn't a great deal of meaningful semantic distinction between Χριστὸς Ἰησοῦς and Ἰησοῦς Χριστὸς. However, there's an incidental morphologic irregularity that explains at least some of the variation. In NT Greek, the dative form of Ἰησοῦς is Ἰησοῦ, identical in form with the genitive.1 This leads ...

The the closest event to the death of Jesus recorded in scripture is Nehemiah's second return to Jerusalem.

The closest thing I can think of is in Luke 22, where Jesus says Luke 22:36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. Soon after, the sword was used. Luke 22:47-50 While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the ...

Yes, the sect of 'the Way' is the same as the sect of 'the Nazarenes.' Peter refers to Jesus as 'of Nazareth' in his sermon in Acts 2: “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know— -Acts 2:22 (NKJV) And there are ...
