I would suggest the "Hoffnung für alle" translation. "Hoffnung für alle" is very commonly used in Germany (especially by young people, because it's easier to read than for example Luther's translation) Greetings from Germany ;)

It is amazing the type of answers that flow regarding this question of after life.it is more amazing when we use scriptures to determine our way of thinking. We know there is no marriage in heaven....we have reason to reject the though of marriage...what was the reason for Jesus to say there is no marriage in heaven.the question asked was about men having ...

I'm not extremely familiar with the bible business, but of course the scriptures are always an authority on these things. I'll simply paraphrase: The Apostle Paul earned his own living making tents, if I'm not mistaken. He had hoped that his self-sustaining habits would make his ministry more fruitful. 1 Corinthians 9:17-18 However those who choose to ...

1st Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things? The famous passage about reaping what you sow comes in the same type of context, one about making sure to pay those who teach the word: Galatians 6:6-7 Let him that is taught in the word communicate [i.e. Elizabethan English for ...

During that time period, obviously women didn't have very much say in really anything, as we see from historical documents and our general knowledge. I think partially it was said that "it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in church" because that was what the times where, women were seen as the weaker and more dependent. On the other hand, there were the ...

I believe you are referring to Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. (KJV)

If its for trying to learn German, you should probably buy a parallel. And probably the easiest to get your hands on would be the ESV-Luther 1984 Parallel from Crossway. If you want a German Bible by itself, you can get the 1912 revision of Luther's translation from the Trinitarian Bible Society. That would be more archaic German, and its sold by TBS ...

Perhaps an viable reason for this is that there are various types of bibles for specific purposes, examples being bibles for mass, and youth study. (see reference here) Each of these bibles is produced by a company and may include extra hints/tips in order to live out the bible. While words may vary between translations, so do the extras that are included ...

V.Rollins is right. Read the verse in it's entirety it is talking about corruption vs. incorruption: " 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption." Symbolism changes throughout the bible from one verse to another. In one instance "blood" is referring to mortality, ...

Anything is sold at a profit because it can be. Supply and demand. Also, many ministries (although not all) have international outreaches to countries very impoverished, so they use the profits they make in the USA and other developed countries to pay the costs of publishing and printing the books in other languages of impoverished countries. Those ...

This appears to be a Jewish tradition rather than any precept of God, since the only Biblical reference I can find is in Paul's letter to Timothy: 1st Timothy 2:11 through 15 KJV Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, ...

Because Bible publishers, like everyone else, must make a living, so they can pay their mortgages, buy groceries, and put the children through college. It's the same reason pastors and missionaries are paid salaries.

The King James Version is not accepted by the Catholic Church. Primarily because it is translated to fit Anglican theology. There is no Catholic edition of the NIV either. Not to mention these misses Deuterocanonical Books. Regarding NRSV make sure it is a Catholic edition. The correct bible that a Catholic is supposed to use is the Latin Vulgate Bible. ...

On the seventh day, he ceased The Hebrew word used in Ex 31:17 (as well as Ge 2:2-3, 8:22; Ex 5:5, 12:15, 16:30, 23:12, 31:17, 34:21; Lev 2:13, 23:32, 25:2, 26:6, 26:34-35; De 32:26, ...) is שָׁבַת (shabath, 7673, to cease, desist) not the word used for sleep or rest. I don't think you could claim that the writer of the Pentateuch was contradicting himself ...

The answer to your question is really quite simple. God said that what He created was very good indeed (or really good, or better than good) prior to the fall of man and woman. With the fall of our first parents, both they and the world they inhabited were spoiled permanently. Paul wrote that ". . . the creation was subjected to futility, not ...

The simplest explanation is that God did not literally rest, but simply that he "rested from creating." From a Christian perspective, God did not rest, in the sense that he stopped doing anything, on the seventh day. In fact, he was then very active in his relationship with Adam and Eve, and all the rest of humanity.

It would be impossible to actually know if there was anything more than taunts Elisha was subjected to by these youths because the Bible does not provide such clarity so to speculate would not be beneficial to us. My father had a bald head. When I was a youth, I witnessed many times when other youth my age taunted my father with "baldy bean", "Mr. Clean", ...

The reason for the absence of the Old Testament in the accepted website is that the Tyndale Bible did not include most of the Old Testament as he was only about half-way done translating it before he was executed. This website includes the Old Testament books that he did complete: Genesis-Deuteronomy + Jonah, as well as the New Testament ...

Salt provides essence and taste to food; no one prefers having bland food, hence the saying "take it with a pinch of salt". In this sense Jesus says that people are the essence of the earth, the planet, it is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. The planet's survival is based on the mere existence of humans. Humans ...

A "prince", literally speaking, is not necessarily a "future king". He is the son of a king, and so MAY be a future king, but may not. If a king has two sons, they are both princes, but it is quite possible that one will become king and the other never will. In English the word "prince" is also used for the husband of a queen when it is the queen who holds ...

I would answer your question/questions this way. The book is framed by Paul by basically asking the question who is going to lead us? The Spirit through Christ, or the Law through flesh? It is one or the other, they are mutually exclusive (Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then ...

While the Bible does not say it, it can certainly be implied. It would be strange for him to not be. Unfortunately, since the Bible is silent about it, then that is about as close as we can get to it. But, I say definitely yes, he was a eunuch.

Thanatos, Hades, and Tartarus are mentioned too, though more in relation to the places (though they are anthropomorphized). Thanatos (Death) is described as the last enemy that is destroyed. The bible also says that all the "gods" of the Gentiles are in fact demons.

Since there are really two questions here, let me address them separately. Do we put "Faith" in Jesus, Yes. One thing to remember is that in the book of Galatians, Paul is primarily responding to those who are trying to take the basic Gospel: believe in Christ and repent of your sins, and add circumcision as a requirement for salvation. Because Paul ...

Satan often disguises himself as an angel of light. For example, in the Garden of Eden, he gave them comforting words ("surely you will not die, but become like gods"), helping them overcome their fear of death from disobedience. It was true that the fruit was good to eat and it was useful for gaining knowledge. No harm in eating fruit, right? And no violent ...

Jesus was resurrected as a human to prove that he was resurrected. When he said "see my hands and feet" he was still in his human body that was nailed to the torture stake, but was now brought back to life. He didn't ascend to heaven (Gods Kingdom) until later, when he returned to his spirit form.

Man in his present state is mortal, and corruptable and cannot enter the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 15;53 For this corruptable must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

Cambridge University holds the copyright to the King James version (through a centuries-long series of transfers of ownership rights), but only in the United Kingdom.

First, the term "children" is a poor translation in the KJV. It's better rendered "youths," which really changes the meaning of the story. Imagine being accosted by more than 40 teens at once, intent on making trouble for you, outside of town. This was no simple mocking; Elisha's life could very well have been in danger, and there's no indication that he ...

According to Thayer's Greek Lexicon, the sense of witness in this passage is "that persons may get knowledge of something the knowledge of which will be good for their benefit" (http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G3142&t=KJV) So Jesus is saying that the gospel will pass on knowledge of sin and redemption to its hearers; it ...

In this verse, "witness" is not a person, it describes the purpose of the preaching. An alternative translation [NIV] makes it clearer: "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."

I agree the New Testament was written in Hebrew?Aramaic first then it was translated into Greek. The NT has Hebrew literature not Greek. Yes, some people spoke Greek in the time of Jesus, but they were the upper-class, the Sadducees, and Pharisees. Poor people were the ones who followed Jesus. I am sure Jesus spoke Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. ...

I warn you this is an advanced answer, so I suggest taking your time in your development before discounting this answer. Unfortunately I cannot directly answer this without some foundational concepts to build from, which will be difficult to receive as it is written: And so I have made it my aim to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I ...

The feast referred to here is the Lord's Table or Communion. Paul would not be telling the Gentile Corinthian believers to practice the Old Covenant Feast of Passover or any other Old Covenant feast. One answer here is mostly correct. They point to the fact that the feast is Christ. But that misses the point here. The point is that our communion with ...

As the producer of the movie said when asked about inaccuracies in the movie "It is entertainment and not a documentary." Biblical movies, down through their history, have injected some parts for entertainment into their story line. Even the best made Biblical movies, such Charlton Heston's great movie about Moses, included a love triangle involving Joshua ...

We also need to take into account; that there were no preservatives, in Ancient times, to deter the natural decay of what the Scriptures were written on. Writing instruments were crude and most off those were written on papyrus or some other form of primitive paper. Even those that remain today require extraordinary care in order to preserve them, and ...

The primary context (Matt 18:15-20) of this passage is about correcting other believers. It's about when another believer sins against you and how you should attempt to bring them to repentance, to repair your relationship with them and to repair their standing in the church. It is not, primarily, about any generic gathering of believers. I believe that ...

There are some folks in this world that you cannot win with. You've heard the expression, "darned if you do, darned if you don't"? Fools are people that you should avoid if at all possible-- see Proverbs 14:7. Avoid fools; I believe that is the correct interpretation of these verses. It only contradicts if you try to take each in isolation.

They are not contradictory. You apply each one according to the situation. I don't know what situations King Solomon experienced that taught these truths to him, but I can think of a couple of examples where one would apply. If the person said something foolish that makes him feel smart, and you know he is teachable, then go ahead and tell him what was ...

They may be "contradictory" if taken in a literal sense, but proverbs are not really meant to be taken literally--whether those from the Bible, or from any other source. Consider the definition of a proverb: a short popular saying, usually of unknown and ancient origin, that expresses effectively some commonplace truth or useful thought; adage; saw. ...

It would appear that the feast Paul is referring to is having Christ, look back at: 1st Corinthians 4:5 through 13 King James translation Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of ...

The preceding verses answers your question: 6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the ...

Without context more specific than "they say", it is difficult to know what was meant. However, such a statement is likely to be referring to no longer having the original copies of New Testament writings. Only copies of copies are now available. This is to be expected as wear by use, environment conditions, and the ordinary misplacement and destruction of ...

Ancient manuscripts have often been lost to us by destruction or other means. To say that they did not survive means to indicate that they have been lost through time. Some were intentionally destroyed by those who did not value their insights or doctrines. Some were lost in accidental fires. Some have actually been lost in ancient libraries, as is the ...
