comment Why does the Bible say that Abraham sacrificed his “only-begotten son”?
"In much the same way, Adam is called the son of God, and Jesus is called the "only begotten Son of God". Jesus is called the second Adam" - The Only begotten Son of God existed even before He was incarnated and named Jesus. So, instead of saying that Jesus was called the "only begotten son of God", it is better to say that the Only begotten Son of God was named Jesus after His incarnation. Plus, in His divinity He still remains the Only Begotten Son of God and no one else holds this title.

comment How many future resurrections are there in the New Testament?
“Flesh & blood shall not be in Heaven, but a sinless body like unto Christ ... Their old nature died as they were taken” - My question was: How is Enoch's case a resurrection? One doesn't necessarily need to die physically to have his old nature terminated - those of the believers who will still be alive at the Lord's coming, as we know, will never die physically, yet will also be changed within a moment and taken to the Lord (1Cor 15:51-51, 1Thes 4:16, 17) - however, one can't be resurrected if he hasn't died physically. Enoch never died physically, at least the Scriptures never say that.

(4) So, just to summarize all of this, yes, I don't rule out the possibility that Moses was resurrected, that is, brought back to life - similar to those cases in 1Kings 17:22, 2Kings 4:34, 2Kings 13:21, Hebrews 11:35 - and then taken by God.

(3) That’s why he is always often considered to be one of the three “candidates” (Enoch and Elijah being the other two), two of which will be the two witnesses in Revelation 11.

(2) The N.T. further distinguishes Moses’ case by telling us of an argument between Michael the Archangel and the Devil – and that was about Moses’ body. All of this singles Moses out and makes him somewhat closer to Enoch and Elijah, the only two persons in the O.T. of whom we are told that they were taken by God while they were still alive, rather than to any other ordinary human. Moses’ appearance on the mount of transfiguration with Elijah is, of course, another case in point stressing the exclusiveness of Moses’ case.

(1) “Moses was seen on the mount of transfiguration. Was he resurrected?” – Moses, though we ARE told in the O.T. that he DID die, is still quite a special case, so to say – he is the only person in the O.T. of whom it is mentioned specifically that, even though he was buried, no man knows were his grave is (Deut. 34:6). Also, he is the only prophet, in fact, the only human in the whole O.T., of whom the Scripture specifically mentions that at the moment of his death “his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated” (Deut. 34:7).

"here are many minor resurrections; Enoch; Genesis 5:24" How is what happened to Enoch a resurrection? As far as I know, Enoch, just like Elijah, never died.

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
@Sarah - "What specifically did you want to know when you posted this question? Did you want to know if it is possible that this is the Sabbath or that this is the first day of 50 days counting toward 7 Sabbaths?" - I just wanted to get an overview of all major views on this matter as I was not familiar with any one of them while I was asking this question.

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
@Sara: "Bullingers comment on Mark 16:1&2 indicates this "first day" - Is it from Companion Bible? Perhaps, he inserted into it his view on the Sabbath that he had had even prior to meeting Welch. He might've still held this view afterwards - I don't really know. Bullinger had only 5 years to live after meeting Welch. The quote that I brought up in my question is from a book written more than 20 years after his death. If there were any big differences between B and W, I think Welch would've mentioned that either in the book that I quoted or in his autobiography. AFAIK, they had no such.

@Sarah: (2) Don't have precise info on the matter of Sabbath, but I am pretty sure that this matter was no longer that important for him. You may want to read Welch's autobiography: charleswelch.net/Autobiography.PDF - he talks there about his meeting with Bullinger on page 81.

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
@Sarah: (1) "Can you tell me about this in the library" - I don't think I could say much, so I'll just answer here. "When Bullinger wrote the Companion Bible was it his understanding that this was actually a Sabbath or did his views change after that?" - He started writing Companian Bible after he met with Welch in 1908 and accepted his perspective, having acknowledged that "half of his books" now must be "scrapped".

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
@Sarah - I was forced to add a quote to my question. At first, I just wanted to ask without any quotes, but later got rebuked. I am not good at handling quotes, hence the mishap. "Or do you understand Bullinger to be saying this is a Sabbath as well?" - Yes, I do. Bullinger was very honest, he even gave up on almost half of his own books after he accepted Welsh's perspective.

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
@Sarah - As far as I know, they were completely agree with each other on this point. Welch is quoting here the Companion Bible not so as to refute Bullinger in anything, but simply to show what kind of perspective on this matter the Companion Bible has, and later he shows that in the light of the perspective that they were holding (both Welch and Bullinger) this whole matter is no longer important (my quote doesn't have it).

comment What does it actually mean “Judge not, that ye be not judged”?
@LukeBreuer - In fact, looks like a valid answer to me. Why not post it as an answer instead of a comment that could be erased by moderators at any time?
