The first thing to understand is the JW believe there are multiple Gods. Jesus is A God, but not The God. This verse is actually used to separate Jesus Christ from Jehovah. Isaiah 9:6 calls Jesus the Mighty God. Exodus 6:3 Declares Jehovah as God Almighty. Each distinct and separate titles. Exodus 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto ...

TL;DR: Milk before meat. Deep doctrine is dangerous to an unprepared soul. "I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able."

Instead they were there to try to catch Jesus speaking against the law or commit blasphemy so as to find cause to condemn Him. Therefore, Jesus directed this saying to all those who did ...

I consider a biblical answer of a person whose heart God hardened. Pharaoh, in the time of Moses, was shown repeatedly hardening his own heart, until finally the Lord began to harden his heart to the point of supernatural stupidity. The Lord made an example out of a bad man, who had chosen and committed himself to his wicked rebellion against the Lord. ...

This is a mixture/edit of answers I've posted to the following questions on BH.SE: What does the prohibition against women speaking in church in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 mean? Is 1 Corinthians 14:33-35 an interpolation? Perhaps Paul didn't mean 'absolute silence at all times' in the churches Paul permits women to speak elsewhere, and Paul must be read ...
