Where did Jacob procure this anointing oil? According to his own testimony, when he left the land of Canaan he had nothing with him except the staff in his hand (Genesis 32:10). The Midrash Rabbah explains that he received the anointing oil directly from heaven: The oil was supplied to him from heaven in abundance, as though from a cruse full to the very ...

"What is the Biblical definition of Marriage?" In the New Testament/New Covenant, the Bible says Christian marriage is a picture of Christ, as the husband and His Church as the bride. Christian marriage is to be an example to the world of what love really looks like, one man and one woman willing to give themselves to and for each other for life. ...

God created all the animals from dust, but when it came to creating Eve, God took one of Adam's ribs. This is so Adam would cherish her as his own. (Gen 2:23) “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh" Though I would not call it cloning, God most likely did take genetic materials from Adam. The degree of modification is not revealed to us. ...

The Genesis 3:16 word translated as "sorrow" or "pain" is the Hebrew word estev. This word is also used when God informs Adam of how the fall will affect him. This word is accurately translated as sorrow. Let's look at this Bible verse from the New Revised Standard Version. Genesis 3:16-17: To the woman He said, "I will greatly multiply your pangs ...

In Genesis 3:16 rather than saying that she would experience pain (as if it were something new), it--instead--says that the pain will be multiplied or increased. To me, this seems to be an indication that there would have been some measure of pain regardless. I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. (Gen ...

The "face of the earth" or "haaretz" does not mean all of the earth. Cains lineage was not destroyed nor was China's and others. The Canaanites descended from the Kenites (who are descendants of Cain). When God punishes he punishes his own children nobody else, nobody else was even given the law, certainly Cain was never given the law when he was cast out. ...

The bow in the sky I believe is more than the rainbow. I believe God is saying what Kirk Cameron said in "Unstoppable." The bow is arched towards heaven and if He chooses to shoot His arrows they would go upward.

The answer to the question regarding the first book of the Bible actually comes from the last book of the Bible: And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Revelation 12:9 NASB And he laid hold of ...

Is there any evidence in the Bible to say that the rest of Seth's ancestors were righteous rather than just being sinful like everyone else? Potential Answer: Embedded at the end of both the genealogies are poetic references to what appear to be a pre-Noahetic bronze age. One ancestor Lamech from the Cain side brags to his wives that he can use this new ...

I believe, people used apple to symbolize the fruit because of its uniqueness, and the mentality that the condition "eat" synonymous to taking a "bite". Also the fruit was attractive as the bible mentioned that the woman saw that it was "pleasant" to the eyes... "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, ...

You seem to be laboring under a misconception. God did not make Adam as dominant over Eve. They were created as equals. All Scripture is quoted from the King James translation. Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. the original word used here was: עֵזֶר ...

We cannot know. We know nothing about Noah's female ancestors or his sons' wives. Maybe one (or more) of them was a descendant of Cain, maybe not. The Bible simply doesn't tell us enough to know either way. The idea that Seth's righteous family wouldn't intermarry with Cain's unrighteous family is unsupportable from the Bible, because Seth's righteous ...
