Re: Sin against the body

Hi Roy, Your suggestion (or rather the suggestion of the article you linked to) that זנה (Josh. 2:1) might be properly translated as innkeeper or a woman who fed people would seem more plausible if I had less confidence in the accuracy of the Epistle to the Hebrews and James. Such a reading also app...

Re: Sin against the body

You cannot find ONE example of a non-virgin (not including widow) girl taking a husband and it be a righteous union. The Scriptures don't often make explicit reference to which unions were considered righteous or not. However, accounting for notable mention in the genealogy of Christ, Rahab (i.e. "...

Re: Heb.1:8?

Hi Jeremiah (and others), Since the subject of this thread is Hebrews 1:8 I'm still musing on the near context of the verse. Steve Gregg pointed out that Heb. 1:10-12 quotes from Psalm 102:25-27 (LXX) which shows that the citation refers to "my God" (Ps. 102:24; MT: v. 25). Both the header (included...

Thanks Paidion; maybe I'd offer you a cigar but I don't smoke.

Re: A Blood Moonless Evening?

For what it may be worth, the likeness of the moon as viewed from Jerusalem on the morning of the 28th bore almost no likeness to anything resembling the color of blood red. In efforts to see the moon as it approached its final observable phases in Jerusalem (from about 5:15-5:40am), it had a beige ...

Re: Revelation Fixation

The Old Testament has more than a dozen books that address the punishment of Judah by the Babylonians. They weren't completely destroyed, and probably fewer than 1,000,000 people were killed in all of the associated fighting. Eventually, they were restored, so that their end wasn't permanent. God s...

Re: Trinity.

Greetings Paidion (and anyone else following the thread), The text containing the allusion to 1 John 5:17 is generally regarded as authentic Cyprian. One reason for saying so is having repetitively heard the motivational phrase “he can no longer have God for his Father, who has not the Church for hi...

Re: Trinity.

Due to my seasonal visits to the forum here I haven't read much of the exchange here. Perhaps the information that I'm offering has already been critically rejected here, though I'll risk pasting it up. Several sources that I consider to be generally well-informed and trustworthy suggested that 1 Jo...

Re: Why was Peter loathe to profess love for Christ?

Though it may not eliminate any of the question marks about the sense that Jesus, Peter, or John intended, the Peshitta is fairly straightforward in using a single Aramaic word (רחם racham, probably best translated "love" in each instance) throughout 21:15-17 in place of the two Greek terms. Maybe t...

Re: Did Christ teach that we should watch for the end times?

The following link should call up all of the verses that use the verb 'mell-o': http://lexicon.katabiblon.com/?search=%CE%BC%E1%BD%B3%CE%BB%CE%BB%CE%BF%CE%BD%CF%84%CE%BF%CF%82 The site itself can look a bit intimidating (especially to someone like myself who is still wading through Greek grammar), b...
