Let's do something for a moment. This is not rude or disrespectful. I know many of the afore accounts are attempts to explain something because your paradigm needs to expand. I am certainly not saying anything derogative about anyone's intellect here. Rather, we must dive int the interrogative accounts and extrapolate them with my knowledge base. I believe ...

The Greek and Hebrew cannot be directly compared but what we can do is compare the NT Greek with the LXX. Gen 2:1, 2 Καὶ συνετελέσθησαν ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ καὶ πᾶς ὁ κόσμος αὐτῶν. καὶ συνετέλεσεν ὁ Θεὸς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἕκτῃ τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ, ἃ ἐποίησε, καὶ κατέπαυσε τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἔργων αὐτοῦ, ὧν ἐποίησε. = And the heavens and the earth were ...

“As the earth turns on its axis, the light from the sun is withdrawn and darkness results. It is not the sun that turns – it is constant. It is the turning of the earth that results in darkness. God is light and He is constant – He turns not and it is therefore impossible for Him to cause any shadow or darkness.” Following the analogy of the sun from the ...

My first thought, after reading your question, turned to that great hymn, ‘Great is thy Faithfulness’: Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father; There is no shadow of turning with thee; Thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not; As thou has been thou forever will be. Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest; Sun, moon and stars in their ...

If you read the 1st Book of Enoch it says that God said He was making the women that had sex with the angels and bore their hybrid children sirens. That's where that term originated.

It appears that both the NRSV and the ESV have similar marginal references about this. The Cambridge Bible commentary offers this explanation: Or number the fourth part of Israel] involves a necessary emendation, the Heb. text (represented in R.V. marg.) being scarcely translateable. For ‘the fourth part’ (רֹבַע) some would read ‘the myriads’ (רִבְבֹת), or ...

"dust cloud" as a translation option to render the Hebrew word רֹ֣בַע (rō·ḇa‘) in Num 23:10 was based on the discovery of an Akkadian cognate of רֹ֣בַע (see Anchor Yale Commentary quote below). The Akkadian language was deciphered in the 19th century. The first volumes of the standard Akkadian dictionary were published in 1956 continuing to 2011 ...

Let's see the context. 2 Corinthians 9:6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. This shows a contrast: sparingly vs generously. Verse 10 confirms this contrast and elaborates on the generosity side. Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and ...

I believe that the prophetic meaning if the burnt offering, Jesus death, the death of the Lamb of God could not be associated with any sweetness. That's what I understand in my spirit. Comments are welcome.

Why was רְעוּאֵֽל Reuel changed to דְּעוּאֵֽל Deuel in Numbers? The Hebrew name רְעוּאֵֽל Reuel is declared in Numbers / Bamidbar 2:14 but this title was changed by Masoretic scribes to דְּעוּאֵֽל Deuel in Numbers / Bamidbar 10:20 [MT]. Numbers 2:14 [MT] “And the tribe of Gad. Chieftain of the Gadites: Eliasaph son of Reuel.” ( וּמַטֵּ֖ה גָּ֑ד וְנָשִׂיא֙ ...

In Num 1:14, the operative word is דְּעוּאֵֽל = "Deuel". Paradoxically, the LXX has Ῥαγουήλ = "Ragouel". In Num 2:14 we have רְעוּאֵֽל = "Reuel". In the LXX we have Ῥαγουήλ = "Ragouel". It is possible that the LXX used a different text. However, it is also possible we have simple copyist's error as the Hebrew &...

The answer to this question is actually just a few verses further along in Rom 10:8-13 - But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Writers both in this exchange and in Biblical commentary over the centuries have struggled with various interpretations, insertions, etc. to somehow put the "the" into Genesis 1:1. While they may succeed at the cost of not adhering to the Hebrew original as it was written, some even fail to achieve the objective of meaning "In THE beginning, ...

Given that repentance is required to enter the kingdom of heaven and the beatitudes are given at the outset of Jesus major teaching on the kingdom could it not be said that these are actual descriptors of repentance - which is more than just turning from sin but adopting a totally new mindset. Therefore instead of the beatitudes being idealistic aspirational ...

The opening 18 verses of the John’s Gospel have been the subject of intense study and debate primarily because of their theological content. Let us examine the first few verses. Note the staircase parallelism of verse 1-5: In the beginning was the Word . And the Word was with [the] God . . And god was the Word [This is the literal word order but for ...

I would say, that the question is not put entirely correctly, for it contains an implicit information, with which I (and anybody) may not agree from the outset; namely, the question implies that "Son" is, or can be, Logos' name only after the Incarnation (when the Logos was called also Jesus), but not prior to the Incarnation, so as to affirm that ...
