Without doing too much digging and research I can think of one example. In Matthew 2 the priests and teachers of the law knew that the Christ was to be born in Bethelehem as per their interpretation of the prophecy in Micah 5. Matthew 2:3-6 (ESV) 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; 4 and assembling all the ...

Job 1:15 and 1:17 refer to raids by the Sabeans and Chaldeans respectively. The Sabeans are a bit tricky to identify, but the Chaldeans (Hebrew kasdim) are definitely a Babylonian tribe. They were one of the groups to sack Nineveh after the death of Ashurbanipal. The Chaldeans were around for quite a while before that - Genesis 11:28, 11:31 has "Ur of the ...

Let's see... God told Noah to build an ark to save his family because God was going to destroy the earth with a flood. Noah built the ark, so he seems to have understood it. 13 And God said to Noah, “I have determined to make an end of all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 ...

The definition of supernatural is pretty important here. If it refers to anything that is not in the physical world, then angels and demons could be considered supernatural. If it refers to anything outside the scope of common experience to modern society, then the Nephilim could be considered supernatural. Perhaps a good definition for supernatural ...

I grabbed one of the first sites that Google returned for "list of bible prophecies" just to get a few links, and can't imagine what your conversation partner might have meant. To clarify, here are a few examples of prophecies, taken from the first few listed on the above site, that it ...

Basically, when the bible talks about God, it means the Trinity or Godhead, while when it says one of their names, such as the Father, it means the Father. But as the Trinity is known--Three in person, One in essence--Then if you talk about the Father, you must be talking in a round-about way, of the Son, and the Holy Spirit, though all are separate. One ...

Catholic Tradition treats Job as an inspired parable and, like lots of the Bible, take this and the assumption that it has multiple authors for granted (not at the expense of its divine inspiration). So... I think it's not a particularly impious statement to say that Job probably wasn't a written story until well after the dynastic period and into the time ...

Here are some supernatural beings mentioned in the Bible that I could find, along with named examples if such appeared for the less common beings: God, angels and people performing miracles in the name of God appear throught the Bible. Fallen angel in form of Lucifer was mentioned in Isaiah 14. Satan, possibly a separate entity from Lucifer, was very ...

It apears logical that Job lived after the flood in the land of UZ. (Edom) southern Isreal and extending outward over its borders.I am disapointed that he did not live preflood with the huge dinasours.(i was sure).But however more interestingly the possibility that there were sizabley large post flood dinasours.

On Job 1:1, it is said: "There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job." Uz may have been refering to The Uz, who was the son of Aram and a direct descendent of Shem. Or, Uz might have been a variation to the word Oz, which means east. In Job 1:3, it is said that Job was the greatest man of all East. Most scholars will date Job in 4th and 6th BCE/BC. ...
