This is a chart of scriptures showing Jehovah's superior nature to that of Jesus https://www.scribd.com/doc/135603404/Jesus-is-Not-Jehovah#logout

I find it very problematic actually, considering the old testament says: God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Numbers+23%3A19&version=KJV

If this is indeed the case, what of all those who have never heard of Jesus or simply don't understand who Christ really is? Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: In Romans we find ...

The Lord Jesus is the only begotten Son of the Father: (John 1:14) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (John 1:18) No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. ...

Good question with a simple answer: No. Categorically no. All mainline Protestants (and actually most branches of Christianity including Catholic and Orthodox) believe that they are radically different. "Categorically" different if I may overload that word. Jesus is God. Son of God in that he is the "son" part of the Trinity, but the very person of God, ...

Jesus Christ has all type of blood put together. that is, He has a person match blood, because in science when blood does not tally it solidify, . That is why when we take holy communion as His blood it matches ours. and never solidify. thanks

I don't think he was more intelligent than Paul. That being said his intelligence or lack thereof really has no bearing on his divinity. That documentary you post also stinks of chronological snobbery. It may have been before Newton. They also may not have had the internet but these people where perfectly well educated. The theory that he used drugs ...

We have several independent sources verifying Jesus's miracles. See Do any independent sources exist mentioning Jesus' miracles performed and the people He performed them on? Josephus, a non-Christian, Jewish historian records "had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the ...

We don't know. Medical science at the time he lived didn't trouble itself over details like blood type checks. Nor will we ever know*. Jesus resurrection and ascension left no bodily remains to be posthumously examined for DNA clues. Even in the absurdly unlikely event that a physical relic such as piece of wood or cloth could be proved to have been in ...

We need to start by bearing in mind that during Jesus lifetime there is no set Bible as such. There are collections of scrolls in synagogues but the ones that would eventually be considered canonical by modern Judaism were not set at that time (canonicity in Judaism slowly distilled between ~200BC and ~200AD). You would get different stuff in different ...

God gave us 10 commandments that no human can possibly fulfill for their entire life from birth to death without breaking at least one commandment at least one time (except Jesus). I believe the Sermon on the mount was to show US that we can't be perfect in the eyes of God. Most people can say with pride, "I never killed anyone" but how many can say "I ...

Moses had to make the image of the fiery snake in bronze and put it on a standard and raise it up. My thoughts from the chapter in John are that the standard was possibly in the shape of a cross with the snake draped over it. The snake represents both Jesus the Christ and the sin he has taken on himself for us. When we look to the Christ on the cross we ...

As a qualified New Testament scholar, I can tell you there are layers of meaning to this difficult parable, but the "nobleman" Jesus refers to here is Herod, not Himself. If you know something of Herod and the son Herod Antipas and their history, you would see that this is an exact prophetic description by our Lord in part to show his hearers their poor ...

Bye has given you a great answer, that represents the best of Christian thinking on the subject. I'm going to give an answer from a very different perspective, but essentially saying the same thing, for no better reason than I feel like it. It's from the perspective of a scientist/mathematician. Let's assume the worst case scenario, which is that a) there ...

@Lizzy Welcome to C.SE! These biblical verses sans footnotes come to mind Rev (RSVCE) 4 It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are chaste; it is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes; these have been redeemed from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb, Heb 8:11 (RSVCE) 11 And they shall not teach every ...

Your consternation probably stems from the tendency we have of thinking of God and Heaven in Earthly terms. Even though Jesus did have a human form he is actually a Spirit who according to John 1:1 was in the beginning with God and was God. Sometimes it is easier if we think of Jesus physical body as clothing for the real Jesus which is a Spirit. The Deity ...

I think the best way to understand the kingdom of God is through the parable of the mustard seed. Mat_13:31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Mat_17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye ...

Your question amounts to: "Why do the punishments of original sin remain after baptism?" The punishments are, as Gen. 3:16-19, says: For women: painful childbirth subjection to man For men: hard work, toil, etc. for bread-wining St. Thomas Aquinas addresses the question of "Whether Baptism should take away the penalties of sin that belong to this ...

A common Evangelical answer to your question would be that even though Christ's work on the cross was* to redeem mankind from the effects of the fall, there is a now-and-not-yet-ness in regard to the complete outworking of the victory won at Calvary (*ie 'was' is really 'was'/'is'/'will be') . In particular, the physical creation in general and our mortal ...

You are mistaken in stating that the pain of childbirth is in retribution for eating the fruit, That punishment was given by God as a punishment for the sin of disobeying his command not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The reason that the punishment continues today is not because of Eve's original sin, but instead would appear to be ...

JESUS prayed publicly even from the cross... "FATHER forgive them for they know not what they do!" If no one had heard it, none could report it as a prayer!

I found that the christian that desires to further their faith for a closer relationship with him is to except the whole teaching of the holy spirit. As he commanded us to go out and heal the sick and lay hands and make disciples. Literally go do it 1 Timothy 4 : 14 tells us to practice the gifts and grow in them. What I'm getting at is though talk of this ...

I think Jesus had to have a sword to fulfil the word of God to David who planned murder and was told the sword would never leave his family and Jesus was sometimes known as the Son of David so he had to get a sword, even though they always make trouble like when the disciples used it to slice of the guy's ear.

but Jesus' answer sounds to me like He is saying, "Yes, it would be great if you had more faith." But His answer doesn't help people with little faith. Luke 17:7-10 But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? And will not rather say unto him, ...

There is much disagreement as to whether the word translated 'carpenter' in: Matthew 13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? and, Mark 6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his ...

Paul writes that in our baptism we go down into the water with Jesus and die with him, setting us free from our old husband, the law,-then,...still in Christ, we also participate in Jesus' resurrection and we come up out of the water with Jesus into resurrected new life in Christ, and Paul writes, 'we are free to marry another', which we do, and it is Jesus. ...

God is not a Man It seems that the impetus for the question relies on the meaning of Numbers 23:19 Numbers 23:19 (NASB) (emphasis added) God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good. What is God attempting to communicate? The context ...

This is a very good question. How could God justifiably do the following: Tell the Jews (via Moses) to stone anyone claiming to be God Send a man (Jesus) to the Jews claiming to be God Condemn the Jews for stoning the man claiming to be God. Here's the justification: Jesus shouldn't have been crucified because he actually was God, not a man claiming to ...

Firstly, if Jesus is God, it is of course impossible for Him to blaspheme against His own law. Secondly, Jesus did not overtly claim to be God directly and consequently inevitably stumble the lost sheep of Israel that He was sent to. He answered the question: The high priest said to him, “I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are ...

jesus was not to be touched before his ascention because that would have defiled the sacrifice. when jesus got to heaven he put his blood on the alter in heaven. hallelujah. He appeared to the disciples after jesus' offering and let thomas place his finger in the wound in his side. It was important that the disciples still believed in Jesus . For a doubting ...

The Pharisees were trying to trap Jesus into convicting the adulteress on the basis of their incomplete recitation of (what we know as) Leviticus 20:10. In similar fashion, we see in Matthew 4:6 the devil tempting Jesus using an incomplete recitation of Psalm 91:11. Jesus' response to the Pharisees is to write something in the dust. The Jewish Encyclopedia ...

Joseph was not, of course, the actual father of Jesus. He did not have sexual relations with Mary until after they were married, but she became pregnant before her marriage and an angel told Joseph it was the Holy Spirit that had impregnated her. Although Joseph does not get much Bible space, he did father children with Mary, James for example. According ...

Was Jesus circumcised? Yes! Please see Luke 2:21 and brasshat's answer. [A]nd did he eat pork? There is no record that he did and from the circumstantial evidence from scripture we can with certainty conclude that since he was an observant Jew, he didn't eat pork. Citing a few: The enemies of Jesus were always on the lookout to catch him, either ...

Jesus write on the ground after asking the people was....NOT GUILTY ... Because in the Law of God, the case is proven if there's 2 witness. But they accusing only the women no one can prove that she is guilty. So, Jesus judge NOT GUILTY., because only God can judge us.

I think why you are missing the main purpose of Luke's detailed genealogy is that you are under the assumption that Christ came through Solomon. During this time Israel was still under the law of not mixing outside of Israel with foreign wives because the Messiah had to come through a pure line of Israel - Solomon did not fit this requirement as he fell ...

Yes, Jesus was indeed a Jew. More than that, Jesus was a truly righteous Jew. His parents did circumcise him (Luke 2:21) as all good Jewish parents do for their sons, and it is a reasonable assumption that Jesus never ate any unclean animal per the Law in Leviticus. The majority of Christians, however, believe that these elements of the Law are no longer ...

Why did Jesus tell His disciples to buy a sword? When Jesus offered the kingdom to the nation of Israel it was a legitimate offer. He did not wink at the disciples and say, "I know you guys are going to blow it, so here is the real plan". The words of Jesus, even the prophetic words are true regardless of what Israel does. If Israel had accepted Jesus ...

If we should baptise only in the name of Jesus then why Jesus say to baptise in the name of the Father and the Holy Spirit too? – curiousdannii Because he wanted to determine who actually understood the keys to the kingdom. Recall he asked his disciples in Matthew 16:13 who people of the day thought he was. A lot of titles were rattled off, but Peter ...

Although the Bible does not address dietary restrictions directly in the New Testament; it does appear to indirectly. The reason for Jesus coming to Earth was to live a perfect life, and fulfill God's laws, since We are unable to do ourselves. As a Jew and still under the law the dietary restrictions would have still applied to Jesus and in order to fulfill ...

From Luke 2:21, we know that Jesus was circumcised, as it states there At the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was given the name Jesus... But we also have Peter's teaching in Acts 10:28: "You know yourselves that how unlawful it is for a Jew to associate with or to visit any one of another nation, But God has shown me that I should ...

For me, and I can speak for no one else, the answer to what Jesus said about arming one's self is found in Romans Chapter 12: "Insofar as possible, live at peace with all men." The key phrase is "insofar as possible." While no one despises war more than those who have been a part of it, I know that violence is to be avoided but I'm not anxious to be a ...
