According to the Law of Vows in Numbers 30, a husband can annul his wife's hasty, rash, unthinking vow. When Eve ate of the fruit she did so knowingly, but in a state of deception. In other words, ...

In Psalm 110 verse 5; to whom does the word Lord refer?

Context is the key. From Gen 1:1 through Gen 2:3, "God" is translated from "Elohim". Beginning in Gen 2:4, "LORD God" is translated from "YHWH Elohim". In Ex ...

Who is the Master craftsman?

The word "as" in "as a master craftsman" in the NASB is in italics, meaning, in this case, it doesn't belong there. It should read, simply, "a master craftsman (or workman)&...

What exactly did Moses do wrong at Meribah?

In Exodus 4:13,14, after God has reassured Moses that He will be with him, Moses makes one final attempt to get out of the job God has ordained for him. In verse 14 we read that God's anger burned ...

Is the landowner being fair to all the workers in the Parable of the Workers of the Vineyard in Matthew 20?

I think the landowner, knowing that there were going to be complaints at the end of the day, should have met with each employee privately and paid them privately. In today's society, on payday ...

Was Melchisedeck eternal in Hebrews 7:3?

He may also have actually been a theophany of God the Father. There are some problems with that idea, but it also makes sense in some ways. If he was simply a man who was a priest, this raises the ...

Did Jesus have actual marks or holes in his hands and side after his resurrection? John 20
0 votes

The Bible makes clear that, when Jesus died, he had far more disfigurements than merely holes in his hands, feet and his side. Prior to his crucifixion, he'd been flogged to the point where his flesh ...

In John 5:26 what is meant by "life in himself"?

God the Father having life in Himself means, no one gave it to Him, He is uncreated, unsourced, unbegotten, unoriginated, without beginning. By the extension of logic, all else, living and non-living,...

What is the meaning of the phrase 'only true God' in John 17:3?
0 votes

In Mark 13:19, Jesus refers to "the creation which GOD created". He doesn't say, "the creation which I created", or the creation which WE created". If he'd meant "I", or "we", would he not have said ...

What does "no one" and "God" refer to in John 1:18?
0 votes

Concerning seeing God (the Father), some passages say "no one" while others say "no man". Logically, we conclude that "no one" specifically means "no man". But in Ex 33:18-23, God tells Moses that "...

What does Jesus appeared in "different form" means in Mark 16:12?

I agree completely with Nihil Sine Deo, but I'm also assuming that what he means is, Jesus was NOT resurrected back into his old physical body, but instead into a glorified body like the heavenly ...

Is John 1:1-3 an allusion to Proverbs 8:22-31 LXX?
0 votes

It should be noted that, in Prov 8:26-29, "Wisdom" is telling us that "I" was THERE when "HE" (God) did the following: made the earth, fields, highest part of the dust of the world, the heavens, set ...

Is the father of the raped woman in Deuteronomy 22:28-29 able to refuse marriage?
0 votes

In Deuteronomy 22:28-29, the phrases "lay hold on" and "humbled her" imply forcible rape, and the definitions of the original Hebrew bear this out. In Ex 22:16-17, something quite different is ...

Show me thy glory

God told Moses that no man could see His face and live, so Moses was permitted to see God's back. In Ex 24:1-11, Moses, along with Aaron and the others, went up and "saw the God of Israel", but from ...

A Seeming Contradiction in Ezekiel 33:12-19

What God is pointing out here is an example of how He thinks, versus how we think. God is saying, if you're living righteously, you're doing well. Keep it up, and you'll win the race. But if you ...

Does a wasted, formless and void earth in Gen. 1:2 imply a previously existing world?
0 votes

If the proper translation is "became without form, and void", then something must have happened between Verse 1 and Verse 2 which rendered the earth formless and void. Conjecturing, Lucifer's attempt ...

In Gen 1:2, the Hebrew word translated "was" is hayah, which could have been translated "became", as in, the earth became "without form, and void". Would God have created the earth in such a state? ...

In John 14:28, what did Jesus mean when he said “my Father is greater than I?”
1 votes

If all Jesus was referring to was the fact that, at that moment, he was a human being while his Father was God in heaven, that would have been a pointless statement to make, because it was true of all ...

Could saying that Melchizedek was "without beginning of days or end of life" possibly be a textual error?

If we are to take "without father, without mother, having neither beginning of days nor end of life" literally, then it means, can only mean, God the Father, who is without beginning or end. It can't ...

What is the difference between eternal life and immortality.?

The two terms are similar, in that God alone has immortality, and by definition has eternal life. But it is possible to not be immortal, yet posses eternal life. Immortality implies not having a ...

In 1 Timothy 6:16 in what way does Jesus "have immortality" (if indeed he is the referent)?

Jesus continually stated that everything he had was given to him by God, including his life. So this cannot be Jesus being referenced here, unless you believe that Jesus has always coexisted with God ...

Was Jacob so Sexually driven that He mistook Leah for Rachel?

According to the law as Laban states, Leah, as the eldest daughter, must be married off first, before Rachel. Presumably Rachel knew this also, but apparently she didn't inform Jacob about this, she ...

What did the 70 elders see, if man can't see God and live?

Presumably, they lived because they saw some part of God other than His actual face, which Moses was not allowed to see in Ex 33:18-23. Moses saw the back of God. It's not stated, specifically, what ...

He does, but only if he himself is either a virgin, or a widower who has not remarried. If he himself is married to another woman, then by definition he has committed adultery with the maiden, and ...

What does "my name is with him" mean in Exodus 23:21?

The phrase "My name is in him", to me, implies that this was no ordinary angel, but most likely, the pre-existent Christ. This could also tie in with I Cor 10:4, where we're told that the "rock" that ...
