I'm Catholic and a CPA. I've have been studying Scripture for a while and like discussing different beliefs.

comment Why pray, “lead us not into temptation”?
@mccjeff I believe one thing Paul is saying is about helping our readers by showing data like your “Do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the wicked one.” (Matt. 6:13) but also the Bible you used, and then do the same for the other citings. E.G. James 1:13 "Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:" (KJV) Whereas I used the KJV in my example above, that is not the Bible I usually read; we only need to identify the source of the citing. Thanks.

comment When did John The Baptist know Jesus was God's Chosen One according to John 1?
Would you say that when John “leaped for joy” in Elizabeth’s womb he was recognizing the presence of the spirit, but he could not yet have recognized specifically Jesus (who hadn’t been born or even named at that point)?

comment What is the significance of the angel being on the right side of the altar of incense in Luke 1:11?
@cdjc I see what you're saying with "appearing to the right side of the altar would hardly seem necessary". Jesus on the other hand told the fishermen "Cast the net on the 'right' side of the ship, and ye shall find", so they did (John 21:6 KJV). To me it seems there must be some symbolism with these and the right hand side.

comment What is the meaning of the face-cloth rolled up in John 20:7?
I'd found some wording differences before between the Young's Literal Translation and other Bibles such as the KJV and NAV. I think it's interesting that the YLT doesn't say "rolled up" but "folded up". biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+20&version=YLT

comment Didn't Cleopas see Jesus’ nail marks?
All right. Then he was in a different form than what the women and 11 saw. Thanks.

comment Didn't Cleopas see Jesus’ nail marks?
Thanks. I'm wondering why the 2 disciples he walked with didn't notice how obviously "damaged" Jesus' hands and feet were. The women Jesus saw before them did, and the 11 disciples did later.
