Concerning 1 Cor 14:34, 35, the NIV provides a good, representative translation of this verse. “Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.”...

The law concerning this commandment was given in the book of Genesis. When God declared "Let us make man in our image and likeness and let them have dominion over the earth"he was referring to the Male man. Proof of this is in the fact that immediately after making Adam,God set him about his purpose to dominate(cultivate) the earth even before he ...

It is obviously true that mankind was created in the image of God (Gen 1:26, 27) but that this image was marred by sin (Gen 3). The whole purpose of the plan of salvation is to restore that image in us which the the Bible describes in a variety of ways. Since Jesus is the image of God (Col 1:15) the language of the NT is usually to make us like Christ. 2 ...

1 Cor 7:8-9 implies that Paul was practicing self-control. 1 Thessalonians 4:4 each of you must know how to control his own body in holiness and honor What do 'not practicing self-control' and 'being aflame with passion' involve? 1 Corinthians 7:2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each ...

The solution to this is actually quite simple and does not need any imaginative theories. The duration of the plague in Num 25 is not stated but it must have lasted more than one day with a total of 24,000 people dying, according to Num 25:8. All that Paul says in 1 Cor 10:8 is that 23,000 died in one day. The other 1000 people may have died on the previous ...

Numbers 25:4 The Lord said to Moses, “Take all the leaders of these people, kill them and expose them in broad daylight before the Lord, so that the Lord’s fierce anger may turn away from Israel.” 5 So Moses said to Israel’s judges, “Each of you must put to death those of your people who have yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor.” 9 but those who died in the ...

At least 3. 0th Corinthians (yes) Based on the chronology provided in Acts and Paul's other letters we can date 1 Corinthians to approximately AD 54-55, while Paul was in Ephesus, and we can date 2 Corinthians to AD 55-56, shortly after Paul left Ephesus. It won’t work to try to make 2 Corinthians chronologically the “first” letter (as some have suggested ...

Let us first have a direct literal translation of 1 Cor 15:24-28: [24] ειτα το τελος οταν παραδω την βασιλειαν τω θεω και πατρι οταν καταργηση πασαν αρχην και πασαν εξουσιαν και δυναμιν [25] δει γαρ αυτον βασιλευειν αχρις ου αν θη παντας τους εχθρους υπο τους ποδας αυτου [26] εσχατος εχθρος καταργειται ο θανατος [27] παντα γαρ υπεταξεν υπο τους ποδας αυτου ...

Is the Son second in authority under God the Father? In a sense, the Son is second in authority. Mark 13:32 "But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

The position or proposition put by the OP, that the Holy Spirit is simply the divine influence or the "mind" of God and NOT a separate person is the principle contention of Arians. This does not make it wrong, just important; that is, I record this to make clear that it on this precise matter that Arians (with Binitarians) and Trinitarians part ...

I would say, No. Your questions, in this place, cannot be answered from this particular passage. Human spirit/human nature is different from Divine Spirit/Divine nature. Comparison is drawn here, between the two, but in a limited way, explaining something which is true of Deity by comparing that same thing with one certain aspect of humanity. One aspect ...

Read it in the larger context of 1 Corinthians 15:40–44: There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the ...

There is at issue only the matter of judgement. Jn.3:19- If you are not with you are against. Rom 8:9 The spirit of the accuser engages the battlefield at large by the very JUDGEMENT in which God decree to be JUDGED by no one.

The spiritual gift of Faith is significant as Ellicott observes: Faith.—This cannot mean the faith which is necessary to salvation, for that belongs to all Christians; but such faith as is mentioned in Matthew 17:20, Luke 17:6, the results of such a faith being here enlarged, and not embracing miracles alone, but prophecy and the discerning of spirits. In ...

Vertically, the Spirit is in complete control. 1 Corinthians 12:11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines. Only some verses later, horizontally, we see that man plays a part in 1 Corinthians 12:31 Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. These two verses can be unified by Philippians 2:...
