How do we know there should be commas in between the titles in Isaiah 9:6?

To be a single title, one would expect eight nouns to make a noun-train. But what we actually have in Isa 9:6 is: noun, verb, noun, adjective, compound noun, noun-noun; the last two nouns are jointed ...

In the opening verses of his gospel account, the evangelist, Mark, quotes twice from the Hebrew scriptures. He quotes, first, from the lesser prophet (Malachi being a 'lesser' than Isaiah, in certain ...

The operative Hebrew word here is עוֹלָם (olam) which simply means a long duration either in antiquity or in the future. Now, let us be very clear, ancient Hebrew, as with most ancient languages, had ...

Was Christ's statement in John 8:24 a claim of deity, and why would the Jews follow-up with "Who are you?" (8:25)?

Introduction A few of the comments—but none of the answers, thus far—have touched on the intertextuality between John 8:24 and Isaiah 43. I'd like to explore this in more detail as this will lead us ...

Does the use of "El-Gibbor" in Isaiah 9:6 substantiate the Deity of Jesus (The Incarnation of God)?

"If you have seen me, you have seen the Father." No scripture indicates that Jesus is the Father. In fact, Jesus clearly cannot have been the Father, because Jesus himself says plainly: And ...

Is "Seeing the Light" after "the suffering of His soul" a reference to the Resurrection of Jesus in Isaiah 53:11?

Actually, the word "light" does not occur in Isa 53:11. Here is my literal rendering of the verse followed by other literal renderings: Of the labor of His soul He shall see [and] be ...

Did the imparting of the "gospel of Jesus Christ" start with the ministry of Jesus, or with the ministry of John the Baptist, or are they entwined?

Is there any basis for thinking there could be a future modern-day application of the prophecy in Jeremiah 9:25-26?

In my view, Jeremiah 9:25-26 does not constitute a dual prophecy specifically pointing to the second coming of Christ. Instead, it is a prophecy that only foretelling the destruction of these nations ...

Do the prophecies of Luke 1 imply that Jesus would be a political messiah rather than a spiritual savior?

If we avoid over-exegesis of certain words, such as 'rulers' in Luke 1:52, 'enemies' in Luke 1:71;74, we may find the theme of Mary's song is 'the mercy of the Lord', and the theme of Zechariah's Song ...

The answer to this question hinges on the meaning of the Greek word εὐαγγέλιον for which BDAG gives three meanings: God's good news to humans as a proclamation (a) [alone] eg, Mark 1:15, 8:35, 10:29,...

What Paul is saying here is not about degree of sin - sinning less, or not sinning at all (after being baptized into Jesus Christ, which equals being baptized into his death - verse 3). He has already ...
