comment In Hebrews 9:22, How Should “Almost” be Interpreted, and What does it Apply to?
@e.s.kohen - I see what you are saying. My explanation was only one suggestion from the perspective of oral Jewish tradition as codified in the Babylonian Talmud (that is, how the Jewish mind may have understood the relationship between blood and water in Heb 9:22).

@e.s.Kohen - the blood atones for all sin, but unless there is washing by water (that is, until the convert is baptized in living water), then there is no complete cleansing. The blood and water complement one another to provide complete cleansing. Thus we have to say that almost all things are cleansed with blood.

comment Why do different English translations differ on Matthew 24:36?
Abe - you cited several verses, and we are familiar with them, but how do you tie them together? For example, when the woman with the blood hemorrhage touched the cloak of Jesus and was healed (Matt 9:20-22). He sensed that power had left his body, but he stated that he did not know who touched him. How could that passage help us to understand the question raised by the OP concerning Matt 24:36? Help us to glean some insights from your own personal journey through the Scriptures!
