    Crucifixion Day

    Jesus was talking with Mary saying he had not ascended to His Father yet: John 20:16-18: “Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren...

    Jesus: Both Son and Father?

    That is NOT SURPRISING. They would NOT want the verse to point to Jesus. Here it is in the Jerusalem Bible: Here is the Jewish Publication Society Bible by Alexander Harkevy: I'm sorry the print came out so small. It is the same as the Jerusalem Bible

    What does this mean: "I have said, Ye are gods..."

    I Just made an interesting observation: In Ps 82, in both verse 1 and verse 6 (where mighty is intended) The munach cantilation mark אֱלֹהִ֣ים is substituted for the metheg (typo in original post). In this case the muna also functions as a metheg. In verse 2, where God is intended...

    Is it possible for you to add the PC Study Bible PCSB Hebrew and PCSB Greek fonts to the forum so that cut and paste will work properly?

    Because of a recent conversation I thought it might be interesting to post this thread. Based on my understanding [or perhaps misunderstanding] of Church history I have come to recognize 4 major doctrinal distinctives that differentiate the denominations founded on pre-Reformation teachings...

    It would be interesting and (to me) helpful if the national flags were identified by the country they represent.

    The Appointed Times of Leviticus 23; and Why I Observe Them

    Perhaps I should start with the Sabbath because it is the first mentioned; but I will save it for last. Lev 23:5 5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord's passover. KJV On Passover I remember the Lord's suffering and death on my behalf. Lev 23:6-8 6 And on the...

    Some Thoughts On The Nature of Christian Debate

    Basic Premise: The Bible is the absolute standard of truth and ANYTHING that contradicts it is a lie or an error. Premise: One function of a forum is to attack ideas to see if they can withstand a challenge. What should happen is that the attacks are directed exclusively at the ideas and...

    Apparent Dichotomy but in Truth FULL Agreement ! What is Janes Saying Here?

    IN whom do you trust?

    Gal 4:22-5:2 22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. 24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the...

    Greek Scholars please help

    I consider myself to be reasonably competent at Greek exegesis; but not nearly as competent as I am with Hebrew. I would appreciate it if those more competent than I am at Greek translation would critique my work here. Gal 4:4 4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his...
