Very good question here ~ this passage refers to a time peace and safety for the inhabitants of Judah and that obviously was not the case in Jesus day - it has not yet been fulfilled! And the lineage/descendants of David shave been scattered across the globe.........very interesting indeed.

This is fairly uncomplicated. Prophetic utterances (= messages from God via a prophet) come in two types: Messages that are appropriate for inclusion in the Canon of Scripture and have content appropriate (as God see fit) for all the people that have and will read the Bible. Messages that only have relevance for the situation or person at the time and are ...

The rather detailed description of John's clothing appears to provide a twin function: 1. Contrast with the finery of the wealthy We have several gospel accounts of Jesus Eulogizing John and his prophetic office in Matt 11:7-14 - As John’s disciples were leaving, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? ...

This is probably more of a literary device than a requirement, since there is no reason to think that all the prophets did. It seems to be a way to establish that John was coming in "the spirit and the power of Elijah". ...The description of John the Baptist's clothing is believed by most scholars to be a deliberate echo that of the prophet Elijah, ...

Difference between wisdom, knowledge, and prophecy? Knowledge: accumulation of information and facts. Understanding: It is the one who can see how one fact relates to another. Wisdom: A person who has wisdom is able to combine knowledge with understanding and put them to work in a practical way. A practical application of this is Jesus' parable of the two ...

The simplest way to answer this question is to quote their contextual lexical meanings. We have the three words of 1 Cor 12:7-11 as follows (from BDAG) Wisdom σοφία (sophia) occurring 51 times in the NT - BDAG gives three basic meanings but only the first of which concerns us here. Within this first meaning, BDAG has two sub-meanings of which the second ...

At first look many will read "so and so happened that the scripture might be fulfilled", as meaning a specific act was performed to match a prophecy. You write down yesterday that the person who answers your question will be named Steve, so I change my screen name to Steve to *Fulfill what you wrote. As with many sayings, idioms, etc., from ...

The intonations are different in those two quotations: John 17:12 says it with an apparent intonation of a remorse and sadness, as if Jesus said: "how bad that the Scripture is to be fulfilled, for of course I'd rather have it unfulfilled, so that my beloved Judas, whom I made so close to Myself as to make him one of the 12 closest disciples, may not ...

This is a fairly complicated question. In the prophecies of Isaiah, we do not have much knowledge about this time period. Thus, I will focus on Ezekiel. To begin, in Ezekiel chapter 33 it says "וּבְאָמְרִ֥י לָֽרָשָׁ֖ע מ֣וֹת תָּמ֑וּת וְשָׁב֙ מֵֽחַטָּאת֔וֹ וְעָשָׂ֥ה מִשְׁפָּ֖ט וּצְדָקָֽה׃ חֲבֹ֨ל יָשִׁ֤יב רָשָׁע֙ גְּזֵלָ֣ה יְשַׁלֵּ֔ם בְּחֻקּ֤וֹת ...

The short answer is: Ezekeiel's prophecy was not fulfilled, Isaiah's prophecy maybe. Ezekiel prophesied against Tyre and said it would be completely destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, but this actually never happened, after 13 years of siege the babylonians gave up unable to conquer Tyre by military means. Actually Ezekiel himself gives a stunning admission in his ...

Were the prophecies in Isaiah and Ezekiel about Tyre actually fulfilled? The answer is "Yes" The Chaldeans laid siege of the mainland city, the siege lasted 13 years (Wikipedia). The island part of the city about 0.5 miles/0.8 km from the mainland escaped the siege and was never captured by the Babylonians. The bulk of the wealth of the city was ...

I posed this question some 20 months ago and have puzzled over it many times. It always seemed bent and I found no satisfying answer. For some reason, I didn't think to check how Ezekiel 9:6 read in the Greek text. When I did, it became, I believe, very clear: [Brenton Septuagint Eze 9:6] Slay utterly old man and youth, and virgin, and infants, and women: ...

There is no need for any subjective interpretation here. Refer to the original Greek text: > ... [10] εκαστος καθως ελαβεν χαρισμα εις εαυτους αυτο διακονουντες ως καλοι οικονομοι ποικιλης χαριτος θεου ... [17] οτι ο καιρος του αρξασθαι το κριμα απο του οικου του θεου ει δε πρωτον αφ ημων τι το τελος των απειθουντων τω του θεου ευαγγελιω ... > ... [10] ...
