A simple example is found in the Psalms, of which the most famous is probably the 23d Psalm. OT God is depicted as a protector, one who comforts the psalmist. 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of ...

1 Corinthians 10:1-4 For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. 3 They all ate the same spiritual food 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock ...

Recent research demonstrates how two nails pierced the right foot of Jesus, and the first nail actually went through his heel bone. A photograph of the shroud of Turin is below. A more legitimate source is: www.shroud.com The short answer is: The majority of the professionals that had access to the shroud determined that there were no broken bones on the ...

It's quite possible that someone with a similar name was born in India at around that time, but this person is not Jesus as understood by Christianity. Our understanding of the details of his life comes from the Gospels, the first four books of the New Testament, which make it clear that he was born in Bethlehem, a small village near the city of Jerusalem ...

Was Jesus a Hindu saint? If you are Muslim you believe Jesus was only a prophet. If you are Jew "Jesus was been just one the most influent false prophet". If you are atheist Jesus was only a good man. If you are Hindu, why Jesus can't be an Hindu saint? You can be Christian or not but is undeniable that the figure of Jesus has influenced the whole of ...

Psalm 78 is cross-referenced by Matthew 13:35 (in my study Bible). My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old— 3 things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. 4 We will not hide them from their ...

In Mark 2:1-12, Jesus attributes the man's sickness to his sin -- "Son, thy sins be forgiven thee" -- which means it arose as the result of some behaviour of his that was counter to the commandments of God. In John 9:1-11, however, Jesus says that neither the blind man nor his parents had sinned, so his disability was attributable to the accumulated ...

Paul clearly knew about the life of Jesus, as he affirms this in his own words in many places: Paul knew the words spoken by our Lord Jesus Acts 20:35: I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of Jesus, how He said, It is more blessed to give than to receive Paul knew about the ...

It is not as simple as a yes or no. The relevant section of the Cathecism says the following are important in understanding the statement "Outside the Church there is no salvation": "salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body" - this doctrine, as all doctrines of the Church, is centered on Christ. It is not about punishing ...

I think if you observe your quotes closely, your answer is revealed within them. Notice in the John passage Jesus states, for I did not come to condemn the world. When was it that he had said this, it was in his incarnation, his first arrival to earth, to carry out his salvific act, the act that would allow reconciliation to all who would place their trust ...

The Haydock Commentary on that verse says: Ver. 47. I do not judge him. To judge here, may signify to condemn. St. Augustine expounds it in this manner: I do not judge him at this my first coming. St. Chrysostom says, it is not I only that judgeth him, but the works also that I do. Thus, during His 1st coming He doesn't judge, but he certainly will at ...

People are not condemned, judged, or punished because they do not have faith in Jesus. They are condemned because of the evil acts they have committed during their life on Earth. They are saved from punishment by faith in Jesus, and (depending on your view on justification by faith alone or with works) by those works of righteousness that spring from that ...

Jesus confronted the official because he was and always will be testifying on the side of the truth. Jesus already knew what is going to happen - He will die for all our sins - and maybe wanted to show the pharisee that he was a liar and that he was judging him unfairly. There where no reasons for any penalty. Whatever Jesus would do or say He was going to ...

Paul's Epistles are always written to churches who have already heard the gospel and the story of Jesus. They are written to encourage and correct those congregations. There is no need for him to repeat every detail of his initial Gospel teaching in every epistle. That would be redundant. As far as the claim that Paul knew no details of Christ's life: ...

There is no known contemporary record of this event which, as others have noted, is surprising as Matthew 27:52-53 says there were many corpses and they walked all the way into Jerusalem and were seen by many. The one reference that can make sense of this is Ezekiel 37:12, which is thought to have inspired this passage: Ezekiel 37:12: Therefore prophesy ...

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus was the Archangel Michael before the incarnation so the answer would be that it would have been Michael (pre-incarnate Jesus). "Likewise, the Bible indicates that Michael is another name for Jesus Christ, before and after his life on earth." JW.org "The foremost angel, both in power and authority, is the archangel, ...

Yes, absolutely. The depositum fidei is the fullness of God's Word contained in both Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. Christ has entrusted to the shepherds of God's people the task of interpreting His Word for the Church: Sacred tradition and Sacred Scripture form one sacred deposit of the word of God, committed to the Church. Holding fast to this ...

I thought it was always apparent that Jesus was saving us from death. I'm formerly a strict Pentecostal, and even though I believed in Hell I still always thought it was meant to be presented this way. Very truly I tell you, whoever obeys my word will never see death. John 8:51 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of ...

No No They were healed from whatever disease they had. Our Lord loved everyone to the point where, died for us. Our Lord also was fulling prophecy as well. Did their belief in Jesus's ability to heal them count as faith towards believing in Jesus and receiving eternal life? To answer your question. Google, does jewish believes in afterlife. From what I ...

He was just using it as an expression to make it known that whatever he was about to say needs to be taken as seriously as possible. Jesus has always told the truth but I cannot say if everything he said was taken seriously by the people he was speaking to. So it could have been used more in the context of "listen carefully to what I am about to tell you ...
