This is a great question especially in view of Heb 10:25 which says: [Do] not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching. This question can be rephrased as, Must meeting together be a physical meeting or can it be otherwise? The noun translated "meeting ...

The editors of the Oxford Jewish Study Bible, with no further comment, mark the Masoretic Text version of the verse you quote: Meaning of verse uncertain Perhaps someone more knowledgeable can explain further exactly why the Masoretic Text version of the verse is considered to be ambiguous. With regard to the Septuagint version, I think the best ...

We might consider the other meaning that God gives to the word "sin", in that it stands for the literal sin offering of the animal sacrifice, which is how Young's translates this verse. "Is there not, if thou dost well, acceptance? and if thou dost not well, at the opening a sin-offering is crouching, and unto thee its desire, and thou rulest over it.'" (...

To answer your question concisely, no, the word “might” isn’t a significant enough criterion in Romans 9:23 to judge an English version’s “accuracy” based on its presence or absence. I think the key is to avoid embracing a strict sense of only possibility if “might” is present. A good example is the famous verse John 3:16. The second half could be ...

Thayer (see under δέ - Strong 1161) says the following : a weak adversative particle, generally placed second in its clause; but, on the other hand, and. δέ (related to δή, as μέν to μήν, cf. Klotz ad Devar. ii. 2, p. 355), a particle adversative, distinctive, disjunctive, but, moreover (1) universally, by way of opposition and distinction; it ...

A very interesting question (by Mike Borden [upvote +1]) about the term λογος (logos) of the Gospel of John of Zebedee. Regrettably, this bungler situation – described by Mike - about the specific meaning of λογος, is real. Why this situation exists? Substantially, for a couple of grounds. An amount of translators: (1) believe that the Bible writers ...

The Word is Active Since the Word was in the beginning, the Greek is secondary and must function in support of, and be consistent with that meaning previously expressed in the Old Testament: 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than ...

John 16:7-11 (KJV) 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10Of ...

Peace. The “elements” spoken of are the fundamental principles or established precedents that men have put into handwritten documents such as the constitutions of the world to be governed by. The Constitution of the United States is an example of a constitution. The “rudiments”….the elements…of the world are these documents that men abide by…and fight ...

An answer to your question makes it apparent that confusion arises with regards "Inherit" in a familial sense and "recipient of a share (in)’, with focus on experience of divine conferral of promised benefits" which is how Danker's Concise Greek Lexicon [1] assigns the meaning. The previous verse shows that Jesus obtained this inheritance based on what he ...

What does “the life was the light of men” mean in John 1:4? What does ἡ ζωὴ ἦν τὸ φῶς τῶν ἀνθρώπων mean in John 1:4? John 1:2-4 (NASB) 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. Him [Jesus] ...

Background In order to understand "the life was the light of men" I believe it is necessary to put the phrase in context with verse 3. Then a first question is where ὃ γέγονεν, the future indicative tense of γίνομαι belongs: A: πάντα δι᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο καὶ χωρὶς αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο οὐδὲ ἕν [<--ὃ γέγονεν] All things were made through him, and without him was ...

I really like Paul's biblically opinion on tongues speaking. Paul made it clear to the whole world about tongue speaking but yet still 60+ % of many people speak tongue anyhow... Has Paul emphasized on 1Corinthians 14:22... 1 Corinthians 14:22 ► New International Version( Bible) Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for unbelievers; prophecy, ...

The Son is not called “God” in Hebrews 1:8. The Greek grammar of Anaphora removes any ambiguity. The article for θεος can be either nominative or vocative. However the antecedent of the anaphoric articles on “God” at Hebrews 1:9 is “God” at 1:8. Since God at 1:9 is the God who anointed the Son, “God” at 1:8 must be the Father. See a complete Greek ...
