If it is a fact that the Romans believed in giving a fair trial to the charged one, they would also ensure that the punishment awarded was justified in the eyes of the beholders. (See that Jesus was offered vinegar to drink, which served as a pain-killer.) Jesus was charged with blasphemy and organizing the Jews against the Roman government. Hanging someone ...

The existing answer provides a learned and fascinating discussion for tracing the interpretative history of Isaiah 52:13-53:12 (often conveniently abbreviated to "Isaiah 53", the so-called "Fourth Servant Song") from roughly the 1st C. CE. Thus, the conclusion... We can ... be confident that first century converts to Christianity did not invent the idea ...

First, it should be noted that even if Jews did not view the passage as Messianic before Jesus, that does not prove that it is a invalid interpretation. In Old Testament times, Biblical prophecies were often not recognized until they were fulfilled. That said, let's look at the evidence. Targum Jonathan ben Uziel The Targums are interpretative ...

The best historical evidence to Jesus resurrection would have to be given by someone with nothing to gain from it. As a follower of Christ and believer that He is the Messiah, I have something to gain from telling everyone I've seen the resurrected Jesus - it gives proof and validity to my beliefs; It makes me "not crazy" to have followed Him. This would ...

How have historians and theologians explained how Moses wrote the Book of Genesis? Historians do not explain how Moses wrote the Book of Genesis, simply because the consensus of historians is both that Genesis is not historically accurate and that Moses did not write this Book. Although theologians are not in total agreement as to how Moses wrote the Book ...

People have argued for the truth of Jesus' Resurrection on the basis of the biblical record alone, because there is no archaeological evidence and no extra-biblical evidence for his Resurrection. The UCLA Institute on Primary Resources describes as primary resources that material which provides first-hand evidence of historical events. It says that they ...

That's actually a very good question that people do not ask as often as they should. You are right that it is important to distinguish between evidence and the explanation of that evidence. With historical evidence, it is also important to qualify what we mean by historical "evidence." Many people today limit this to physical evidence like archaeological ...

Josephus said this of Sodom in "The Jewish War" "The length of this lake [Dead Sea] is sixty-seven miles measured from Zoar in Arabia the width seventeen. Next to it lies the land of Sodom, once rich in crops and in the wealth of its cities, but now dust and ashes. They say that owing to the impiety of its inhabitants it was burned up by ...

I recently came across some research on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah put out by the Associates for Biblical Research that states the cities where found and also refers to ancient mention of Sodom from trade records that date back to about 2200 b.c. There is also reference to the city of Zoar and a temple or shrine built in front of a cave believed to be ...

@Dtest. there is one person named JOB in Genesis 46:13. He was the third son Of Issachar. The Job in the book of Job, I believe, was a fictional person. In Job 27:1 and Job 29:1 it clearly says that Job took up or continued his parable. I believe the whole book of Job is a parable written by Moses. Moses lived 1393-1273 according to my research. TO ...

Point of all views is based on assumption of what is considered handling of the ARK which is a meeting place of Jews and God. No question that you must have the ARK to deal with moving SIN forward and its consequences for one year. If you recall the captivity of Israel in Babylon was based on NOT observing the requirement of repentance annually by Israel ...

In regards to the comment posted above regarding John 21:7, here is the commentary on the verse from John McGill: "The Greek word (ependuthv), here used, is manifestly the (tdnwpa) of the Hebrews; and which, the Jewish writers say, was a strait garment, which a man put on next his flesh to dry up the sweat; and a very proper one for Peter, who had been ...

Was there a reason Jesus came at the time he did? The short answer is "yes" – there is nothing accidental about how the key events in the Bible timeline unfold. This is evident in Acts 41 for example: 27for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with ...
