Because He is the son of God and listen directly to father's commands as He says in John. The law was transmitted by angels.

It is true that in some version of the NKJV, "LORD" is fully capitalized in Matt 4:10, but only because the OT source, Deut 6:13, translated the tetragrammaton. Deut 6:13 (from Hebrew) - Fear the LORD your God, serve Him only, and take your oaths in His name. Deut 6:13 (from LXX) - Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve; ...

Yes, Jehovah God is the only one we should worship. That is the essence of the first commandment. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20:3, KJV) To worship anyone or anything else is to break this commandment. The Bible is clear that we have only one true God, who is identified, in the New Testament, as being the Father. But to us there is ...

Here are some of the miracles or "mighty works" done in Capernaum by Jesus: John 4:46-54 - healing the the nobleman’s son Mark 1:21-28 - healing the demoniac Matthew 9:1-8 - healing the sick man of palsy Matthew 8:1-14 - healing Peter's mother-in-law of a fever Matthew 9:18-26 - healing the woman with the issue of blood and healing Jairus' ...

What "mighty works" was Sodom deprived of that would have prevented its destruction? It might be helpful to look at another translation of this, as well as the surrounding passages: Matthew 11:20-24, NASB: "Then He began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent. 21Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to ...

It is true that James, the brother of Jesus did not believe that Jesus was Messiah of the world - John 7:5 - For even His own brothers did not believe in Him. However, with James at least, that changed because by Acts 15, it appears that James had become one of the leaders of the early church; see Acts 15:13-18, Gal 1:19. Further, the NT book of James ...

After praying for the purity of his followers, Jesus prayed about this matter of unity – no less than three times (verses 11, 21 & 22). The fact that Jesus’ prayer not only centered on his followers right there and then, but all believers in him who would become followers through the preaching of the word about Jesus, indicates immense scope. This means ...

No, you read that right. Throw that garbage New Testament away. Every time it quotes the Tanakh, it’s to twist it and force it into another context. Start with Matthew. Isaiah 7 has nothing at all to do with this crap. The NT is a trap for people who disregard Torah.

"that they may be perfected in unity" This is the same unity that Jesus was able to realise by the end of his fleshly life when he had learned obedience through suffering - his unity with the Father was perfected - made complete. ... to make the author of their salvation perfect through sufferings. Heb 2:10 Even though Jesus was God’s Son, he ...

ἵνα πάντες ἓν ὦσιν, καθὼς σύ (v21) is essentially the same as ἵνα ὦσιν ἓν καθὼς ἡμεῖς (v11) This is essentially the same answer as here. What does "we are one" mean in John 17:11?

It's hardly possible to grasp the significance of 'name' in this verse without consulting the many other times 'name' is used in a similar way in scripture. Even confining a search to its application to Jesus, we are left wondering. Let me just give an example of this. John 17:11 - The Father gives the Son his name; that name protects all those the Father ...

First question: St. Thomas explains the 4 properties of glorious body which are: impassibility, thinness, agility and clarity. Second question: Other saints rose again in their passible bodies and they were assumed with their bodies in heaven at the lord ascension before the death as was for Blessed Virgin Mary. Third question: Yes Fourth question: As you ...

Jesus was the only one that has resurrected by himself, by his own power, and not by the power of a "third party". It is a silly answer, but perhaps may help you somehow.


2

One point that does not seem to have been noticed so far in the answers is that you do not say what the translation is that you are working from. This seems to have caused you to labour under the misapprehension that the bodies of the previously dead saints arose at the moment Jesus arose – in resurrection. But we all know it wasn’t until the third day after ...

Jesus said He would rise again after His death. His disciples had this promise. No one else knew they would be resurrected. They were just part of the story. Jesus's resurrection had special meaning because He had foretold it. He said if the temple (His body) was torn down that He would rebuild it. No one else said that. He prophesied His own resurrection. ...

Though Jesus sometimes appears to use the Midrash PaRDeS methods, Midrash [5] alone IS eisegesis as demonstrated by the rabbis who practice it and have no standard of truth concerning the results. [6] If that's all that Jesus did, he was certainly authorized to do so by being the "Ghost writer" of the Old Testament. But this is not the case. Jesus ...

The vulgata clementina in latin language reports splendor which is sheen in english. This word means ligth reflected and light emitted at the same time. Infact the subtle spiritual light of the moon is not visible and it's the light of the Science according to fathers of the church.

What is so special about Jesus' resurrection in light of other people rising from the dead? How did Jesus’ resurrection differ from the resurrections that preceded it? Jesus’ resurrection was different from the resurrections that preceded it. People who were brought back to life earlier came back with physical bodies and eventually died again. Jesus was ...

It never ceases to amaze me, that no matter how many times we have, with our own eyes, witnessed the sun and the moon in the sky at the same time in positions relative to each other that completely destroy the "it's only a reflector" theory, we still choose to rely on some "controlled" demonstration our 1st grade teacher performed in the ...

Only Jesus was raised from the dead without the intervention of another human being. Every other recorded instance involved someone else being there and initiating it or being connected with it. For example, Jesus himself was instrumental in the raising of Lazarus. But none was so involved when Jesus of Nazareth arose on the first day of the week. As to ...

It is easy to judge the disciples since, after all, they were with Christ, so why on earth should they worry about getting food when they have no money. Except, of course, so are we: "Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world." 1 John 4.17 and in John 14.12-14: ...

That still doesn't make fully sense to me, because isn't that reasoning AFTER the fact? At the moment Jesus rose AND the saints rose, the only thing people saw that there was rising from the dead; they didn't know that the saints would die again and that Jesus would not, right? Ok, I kinda see your point. I will try to answer why Jesus's resurrection is so ...

The people that were raised from the dead went into the city. It never says they ascended into heaven. 1 Corinthians 15 talks about the order of resurrections But here's what it says about Jesus. Acts 1:10,11 After He had said this, they watched as He was taken up, and a cloud hid Him from their sight. 10They were looking intently into the sky as He was ...

Psalm 110:1,4 was fulfilled by Jesus as "the word of the oath" "where by two things it is impossible for God to lie."

Jesus used the method of divide and conquer in Mark 6: 39Then Jesus directed them to have all the people sit down in groups on the green grass. 40So they sat down in groups of hundreds and fifties. 41Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to distribute to the ...

How is the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, different than all the former dead saints? There is no indication that any other resurrection was to anymore than a physical resurrection - they would all die again. Only at Christ's return are the saints given eternal life as Jesus now has. No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven ...

There are several things about Jesus' resurrection that make it unique: 1. Jesus predicted His resurrection Matt 16:21 - and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life. Matt 17:23 - They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised to life. Matt 20:19 - and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified....

You should distinguish between the Principle of resurrection and the object of resurrection. Only the Lord Jesus Christ is both a) the Principle of resurrection and b) the object of resurrection. He is a) the Principle of resurrection together with the Father as the Father's co-unbegan eternal Logos, without whom Father can neither create the world nor ...

What is the name God gave Jesus? John 17:11 John 17:11,12 in making reference to the 'name' that God gave to His only begotten son, after being manifested in the flesh, we are to understand this to be that of Jesus, Yehoshua in the Hebrew language. Jesus is the latin form of the Greek, I.e.sous and means 'Jehovah is salvation'. We are not to be thinking '...

The short answer - it is both. Names of YHWH in the OT applied to Jesus: "God" Deut 4:35, 6:4, 32:39, Isa 44:6, 45:5, 6; compare Matt 1:22, 23; John 1:1, 18, 20:28, Titus 2:13, Heb 1:8, 9, 2 Peter 1:1 "My Lord" Ps 35:23 (LXX: κύριός μου), Ps 110:1; compare John 20:13, 28, Luke 1:43, Phil 3:8, Matt 22:44, Mark 12:36, Luke 20:42, Acts 2:34 ...

Although the given name of Jesus has a meaning (Saviour), this is not the sense in this context. As @Polyhat has mentioned before, "ὀνόματί", Hebrew "שֵׁם", does often not refer to a given name. Rather, it has the meaning as in English "In the name of", meaning "with autorisation of", leading to the meaning "...

The problem is when we apply our (western/modern) ‘thinking’ to Hebraic concept. In this case ‘a name’. So to correctly discern what John 17:11 means “.. [snip] .. in your name, which you have given me” - we need to look back. EXODUS 23:20 Behold, I send an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. 21 Pay ...

John 17:11 Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. Is it actually, literally a name? No, it is not a secret name whose spelling is known only to selected individuals. The name is the person himself. This is a figure of speech called synecdoche. The same John makes it clear earlier in ...

καὶ οὐκέτι εἰμὶ ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ καὶ αὐτοὶ ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ εἰσίν κἀγὼ πρὸς σὲ ἔρχομαι πάτερ ἅγιε τήρησον αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ ὀνόματί σου ᾧ δέδωκάς μοι ἵνα ὦσιν ἓν καθὼς ἡμεῖς (John 17:11, Textus Receptus) The Greek word ὀνόματί that was translated here as "name" is rich with potential significance. It can also be understood as reputation or even character. ...

The Bible indicate that the curse on Jeconiah was reversed or lifted because of his repentance. Zerubbabel is the grandson of Jeconiah. Since no descendant of Jeconiah could ever sit on the throne (Jeremiah 22:24 and 22:30), if Jesus is a descendant of this cursed king, he is disqualified from being the Messiah. If true, then what is Jeconiah doing in the ...

Jesus is not in the lineage of Jechoniah the cursed one! 30 Thus says the Lord: “Write this man down as childless, a man who shall not succeed in his days, for none of his offspring shall succeed in sitting on the throne of David and ruling again in Judah.” Jeremiah 22:30 (ESV) Jeconiah (who is also called Jehoiachin or Coniah). In this scripture verse who ...

Consider the context of John 8:20 to 8:30. In John 8:24, the Jews were unbelievers but by John 8:30, "many believed". The Jews did not seek Jesus while he could be found, John 8:20. Later they will seek him but not find him. The message here is seek Jesus today while he can be found. Don't put it off to seek him at a later time. Follow his ...

What does “seek” mean in John 8:21? Spiritual seeking that will be fruitless (thus leading them to die in sin)? Jesus says to his listeners: John 8:12 NASB "Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; the one who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” The Pharisees take exception to Jesus ...

I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, 'He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.' John 1:33 And so we read that John was given a witness to this promised event so he would know who is the one God had sent. We only need to read in context to see ...

Tony, It's very telling the last sentence that Jesus spoke to John the Baptist in Luke 7:23 How blessed is anyone who is not offended by me! It is amazing how even John after being told by the Spirt that Jesus was the son of God (John 1:33) that he too would have his doubts. John was imprisoned and Jesus did not come save him or get him out of it. Perhaps ...

Gen 49.10 is a rather cryptic passage, and it's not obvious how to interpret it. If it is talking about a physical government, the first king was Saul, from Gibeah of the tribe of Benjamin and not from Judah. David was from Judah, it's true, but with the Babylonian captivity the scepter clearly departed to gentile nations, first Babylonia, then Persia, ...

Why are people still looking for another messiah? Even John the Baptiser was a bit confused in Matthew 11: 2 When John, who was in prison, heard about the deeds of the Messiah, he sent his disciples 3to ask him, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?” And John was a prophet. People are not perfect in our understanding of the ...

Ps 8:2 reads as follows: Masoretic Text (Hebrew): From the mouths of infants and nursing babies You have established strength Because of Your enemies, To do away with the enemy and the revengeful.

Oz עֹז in Hebrew is “strength” in English. | Since the Masoretic niqqudim was not available yet for Jesus to study, Could the Aramaic-speaking Yeshua of Nazareth have misquoted the Hebrew vowels from “Psalms”|Tehillim 8:2 [actually Psalms 8:3 in a Hebrew Tanakh] when singing the phrase יסדת עז “Yisadeta Oz”? Ez עֵז would be “goat”. Az עַז would be “strong”. ...

In Hebrew it's [?oz](https://biblehub.com/hebrew/5797.htm>, "strength". In the Septuagint it's ainos, "praise" (though Strong's says it's more properly simply a story or a saying). The New Testament writers generally use the Septuagint. (Jesus, speaking Aramaic, may or may not have done so; the author could always cross-reference it to ...

The Greek word is an adjective used as a substantive (noun) within a prepositional phrase εἰς τὸ παντελὲς. An adjective can be only gender. The neuter is used for adverbial use.

There are probably two referents in Jesus' comment in matt 12:6. The first is the Messianic prophecy in Hag 2:9 - The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former, says the LORD of Hosts. And in this place I will provide peace, declares the LORD of Hosts.” I believe that in Matt 12:6 Jesus also refers to His remark in John 2:19-21 - Jesus ...

The word παντελής is from two Greek elements, pan + teles = all + complete. It only occurs twice in Luke 13;11 and Heb 7:25. BDAG lists two meanings for this word: pertaining to meeting a very high standard of quality or completeness, completely, (a) with respect to action (quite) complete, eg, Heb 7:25 ... pertaining to unlimited duration of time, ...

I would interpret this as both "forever" and "completely" because The context is the undying priest of the order of Melchezidek (focus on "forever"/olam in Psalm 110.4) as contrasted with the finite lifespans of Levitical priests The temporary sacrifice of the scapegoat, which must be performed annually, is contrasted with the ...
