The answer to the question does not lie in the statement but in the time/period. The first time Jesus was sent into the world His duty was to spread the Word of God to all men and not to judge anyone:
For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. “He who believes in Him
is not judged; he who ...
Suppose a lorry carries a load up a hill; we can say the lorry is responsible for taking the the load up the hill. But then we can say, no, actually the lorry was not responsible, it was the the driver who was responsible. Then we can say actually it wasn't the driver but God who sustains all things. [Heb 1:3 He upholds the universe].
The lorry is an ...
Will the King of kings Judge? You can count upon it. If He didn't, He would be the first king that didn't judge. Jesus is the King of kings and LORD of lords. When will He judge? In His times--future times per 1 Ti 6:12-15, KJV:
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession ...
These statements are not contradictory but are referring to different things. When Jesus says he did not come to judge, he is referring to the purpose for which he was sent into the world.
“God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him” (Jn 3:17).
If we stand back and look at Jesus' ...
Maybe not a specific (or good) answer, but: anyone who reads Scripture will find hundreds of contradictions. The takeaway is that Scripture was intended to instruct, not intended to be taken word-for-word literally.
Before I became a Christian, I delighted in these contradictions. It was evidence to my naive mind that Scripture was untrustworthy. Once I ...
The Revelation of Jesus Christ is that which God gave unto him :
The Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave unto him ... [Revelation 1:1, KJV]
If it did reveal the time of his coming, then it is of God that it is revealed.
But I do not believe that the exact time is revealed.
The circumstances of his coming are revealed, just as we see in 2 ...
Jesus is the Judge; He judges under the authority given to Him by the Father.
The New Testament repeatedly identifies the Father as the source of Jesus' authority. For example, from 1 Corinthians 15:
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered ...
Liddell & Scott reference the Greek word makran in order to explain molis, the idea of being 'a great way off'.
Thayer translates molis as 'with difficulty' or 'not readily'.
Luke uses the word in connection with a nautical difficulty related to wind conditions when sailing under Crete, they hardly (molis) passed it.
But there is nothing in Paul's words ...
The origin is of Hewbrew / Judaism mysticism. Some suppose it to be from the Midrash and Talmud oral traditions passed down from the 3rd - 1st century BC, and then later picked up and reprinted as the Book of Enoch.
From Chabad.org, "Nephilim: Fallen Angels, Giants, or Men?"
"The Midrash3 relates that when the generation of the Flood went astray, G‑d ...
I suppose looking at the verse in complete isolation as you suggest, one could argue that Jesus might be speaking of avoiding worldly rather than heavenly judgment.
This is not what is suggested, however, in the parallel passage in Luke (6:36-38):
Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged
This is ...
Does God really forget our sins?
The Bible never says that God will "forget" out sins, rather we are told that God will not remember them. Forgetting is passive; like forgetting where you put the car keys. Forgetting is not done deliberately. However, when God declares that he will "not remember" our sins, that is active.
The word "remember" (זָכַר) has ...
I think an excellent question, but perhaps needs to be more specific. - You need to differentiate is ‘what is being judged’, because this makes a difference, it makes the difference - that is, the answer as to ‘Does Jesus Judge’ .... will differ!
Let’s look a little closer ...
The first point to note is seen here.
JOHN 5:22 Furthermore, the Father judges no ...
Does Jesus Judge or Not?
There are many passages that appear to directly contradict each other. Here is a sample on the subject of judgment.
Jesus Judges all people:
Jesus acknowledged that God had appointed him as a judge who met the divine standard. At John 5:22 ASV he said:
Furthermore, the Father judges no one,but has assigned all judgment to
When human words are applied to God, they change their meaning and are transfigured into new, wonderful meanings. The same with the term "judgment":
humanly, "judgment" means that one's action is esteemed and if found wrong the actor is given a just reprisal. For instance, a student's test is esteemed, and if found that he answered 8 from ...
God is in Christ.
"To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself,
not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us
the word of reconciliation." (2 Corinthians 5:19)
And Christ is the only one worthy to judge us, having been one of us, lived among us, and died to atone for our sins.
In answer to the question ...
Dr. Wallace explains this in his grammar. τοῦ κόσμου τούτου is genitive of subordination. Thus, νῦν κρίσις ἐστὶν τοῦ κόσμου τούτου has the meaning, "now a judgement is over/upon this world."
Genitive of Subordination [over]
The genitive substantive specifies that which is subordinated to or under the dominion of the head ...
2 Thess 1:9 "away from the presence of the Lord". They are cast out of heaven.
Proverbs 15:11. "Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the Lord".
Psalm 139:8 "if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there".KJB. God's presence appears to be in hell not as Saviour, or in relationship with the occupants. Maybe more as "...
Those who arrogate themselves above the Lord and not accept Him as the Savior, by a pretense that they know it better and they, not Him, are true heirs of Law and Moses (John 9:29) are blind and incorrigible, because being blind they think to see (John 9:41); but those who confess that Moses is not enough for salvation and that Moses' Law cannot be fulfilled ...
As stated in this realted answer: What does Genesis 3:16 literally say?
He is saying that the pain during child birth will be greatly multiplied. He is the one that caused the pain to multiply. In the direct Hebrew he says that He will "greatly multiply" pain in conception: http://biblehub.com/interlinear/genesis/3-16.htm
The operative word here is דִּין (din). Its primary meaning is "to judge". That much is not controversial. To understand the meaning of the ancient Hebrew idea of judgement we must recall two things:
The idea of judging and governing are essentially synonymous. A king ruled/governed by being supreme judge, eg, 1 Sam 2:10, Isa 3:13, Jer 22:16, ...
Rephrase: According to Matthew 7, Is our "final judgment" by God, (in the eschatological sense), contingent on how/if we judge others in our lives? Or, is Jesus stating that you can expect people to not judge you, if you don't judge them?
Context: Throughout this sermon, Jesus' is consistently speaking about judgment from the "father":
You need to be clear in your understanding of ‘transgression’. Transgression requires a Law. So, to ‘judge’ someone, you first need Law, and then to prove that there has been a transgression.
So ‘sin’ has always been, since Adam.
ROMANS 5:13 For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
But, without [a written] Law, you ...
Does Jesus Judge or Not?
Yes, Jesus judges. In 2 Corinthians 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that
each one may receive compensation for his deeds done through the body,
in accordance with what he has done, whether good or bad.
This judgement seat comes from the word bēma and, combined with Matt. 16:27, 2 Tim. 4:8, Rev 22:...
