Psalm 82:1-2,6-7 NASB God stands in[b] the assembly of El; in the midst of the gods he renders judgment. 2 He says, “How long will you make unjust legal decisions and show favoritism to the wicked? 6 I thought, ‘You are ...

Let's see the context. Holman Christian Standard Bible Zechariah 1: 8 I looked out in the night and saw a man riding on a red horse. He was standing among the myrtle trees in the valley. Behind him were red, sorrel, and white horses. 9 I asked, “What are these, my lord? ” The angel who was talking to me replied, “I will show you what they are.” Zechariah ...

In this case, the "angel of the LORD" is different from the "Angel of the LORD" in other places clearly identified as the LORD, such as Gen 16:7-13, 22:11-17, 32:24-30, 48:16, Ex 3:2-6, 32:34, Num 22:22-35, Josh 5:13-15, Judg 2:1-4, 6:11-23, 13:3-23, Isa 63:9, Dan 3:25, 28, Hos 12:4, 5, Zech 3:1-7, Mal 3:1.

It says all, why on earth would He not draw all to Himself? How could He being God, being Love, do otherwise? It says all because anything else would not be worthy of the God who is “All in all”.

The question is large in scope. Maybe the moderators will allow some length for this reply. It is the context of the scriptures which determines whether "sons of God" are heavenly messengers, or earth born men and women. The question includes Rom. 8:16, but we should look two verses up. "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are ...

"Son(s) of God", is apparently equivalent to "children of God" if we compare Rom 8:14 & 16, 19, 21. Another closely related phrase is "sons of your heavenly Father", Matt 5:45, 6:32, 23:9. Now, "Son(s) of God" occurs in several places with slightly different applications: Humans who are followers of Christ, ...

Apart from the nature of Christ, there are few matters as divisive among Christians as the doctrine of Inspiration of the Bible. The questions that arise from the doctrine of inspiration: (1) How does divine inspiration work? And, (2) What is inspired? (I will not address the second question here). How Does Inspiration Work? Traditionally, there have been ...

The best summary for the meaning of γραφή is given by BDAG which I summarize here. It gives two basic meanings and some sub-meanings as follows: a brief piece of writing - this meaning not used in the NT sacred scripture, (a) an individual Scripture passage, eg, Mark 12:10, 15:28, Luke 4:21, John 13:18, 19:24, 36, Acts 1:16, 8:35, Rom 11:2, 2 Tim 3:16, ...

The answer requires multi-level considerations. The meaning of "inerrant" is free from error. First, is all scripture speaking truth? That answer is No, as we must determine who the speaker of record is. When the adversary speaks, he is speaking a lie (John 8:44). He lied to Eve in Gen. 3:4 by adding the word "not" to God's ...
