The whole Bible is about God's choosing Hebrews as His people and making Covenant with them. Gentiles are separated from God in the natural sense until we are "adopted in" or Grafted in to the Vine.(Jesus). We have the right to be sons of God when we accept the sacrifice of Jesus. Christians often have the mistaken idea that somehow God has changed His mind ...

This verse is best taken in context, because the verses cut off part of the sentence as we would understand it in English. Note that I prefer the Holman Christian Standard Bible over the King James translation. However, I'm including verses 4-6 KJV here for reference: ======================== Ephesians 1:4-6 King James Version (KJV) (4) According as He ...

It's true there is so much more than the Life or Death of Jesus in the Bible, but I would just say the most important information we get from The Bible is Jesus defeated death and rose from the grave. That would make Him the Savior and our answer to go to heaven as He promised. His life was instruction and example for believers, but in point of fact, had He ...

This is a quantifiable question: let's look at the number of verses about Jesus' death versus his resurrection and post-resurrection life. The Gospels seem to pay more attention to the death of Jesus than the Resurrection, as shown by the verses about each, but later books (such as the writings of Paul) focus more on Jesus' Resurrection and post-death life. ...

"Is human nature included in the Trinity?" Included it what sense? Everything that is part of God is God, since God is supremely simple. But God is certainly not human nature, although He contains all the perfections of human nature (and more). The Second Person of the Holy Trinity assumed (took up) a human nature. As St. Thomas says in "Whether the union ...

Per John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." The Word of course was Jesus. Also, from Genesis we see mainly God and the Holy Spirit, the other co-existence of the triune God: "...and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.…" So Jesus is one with God, although he co-existed as a human ...

Jonathan Cahn a Messianic Jewish Rabbi and pastor has a very interesting and intriguing take on this. His detective work, drawing from Scripture and Jewish Laws, Traditions, and on Hebrew Holy Days, leads him to propose Nisan 1, 3756 i.e. March 20, 6 BC. See more here: Jonathan Cahn - When was Messiah Jesus born?, Connie Oelbaum | YouTube. How does this ...

The original question.Where was Jesus in the events of the Old Testament....in 3 parts. 1. He was back and forth between 3rd heaven and earth. There are at least 118 names that refer to Jesus in the KJV Bible. One name for Him is "the angel of the LORD". Another is the Angel of His Presence which is plainly seen in Isaiah 63:9. 2. Yes he was sent." I do ...

(Note: Most of the answers given so far are based on the penal substitution model of atonement, which is confined largely to the Protestant wing of Christianity. However, this question was asked in the early days of Christianity.SE, before current standards were adopted regarding this site being about Christianity, not about the truth. (See "We can't handle ...

As already answered, "son of David" was hinting "messiah", numerous prophesies predicted the messiah would come from line of David. To add - jews had both biological and legal versions of heir/descendant/"son of David"... for example if a man died without having an heir it was recommended that his brother or other close relative marry his widowed wife and ...

In the early fourth century, many Christians were divided over how best to understand the relationship between God and Jesus. Emperor Constantine called for an ecumenical council of bishops to settle the matter: the Council of Nicea, in 325 AD. The result was a condemnation of 'the Arian heresy'. Letter to Emperor Constantine A few years later, in 327 ...

The answer is simple, it is to remind us that He is the Truth. It is a living testament that He was and He is the Truth and He was telling the truth yet people of Israel, not necessarily Jews, were blind and unable to see or hear or accept the Truth, Jesus Christ. It has nothing to do with English and or phrases in any language. "I am telling you the truth!" ...

Third hour...All hours are depicted by the sun. Noon=None. High None....High Noon. It is all very simple really. A third hour could be different on which side of the earth you are on at the time, hence different time zones. At the time it was approx. 3:15 when Christ was crucified...hence the opposite pull effect on the am side. The witching hour.

While the scriptures don't name the disciples present at the wedding at Cana we do know from scripture that Philip became a disciple of Jesus on the second day after his baptism. John 1:43 reads, "The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.”" As one of his chosen disciples it can only be assumed that when John ...

As one of the comments stated, in order to understand why Christians believe Jesus to be the 'Son of God', you'll want to grasp the concepts of the Incarnation of the Logos (God's Word, also sometimes referred to as the 'Wisdom of God' assuming flesh). And the trinity, which is the concept that there are three Persons in a single being. This is a difficult ...

Not all denominations of Christianity give the same answer to this question. But probably all Christians can agree that we believe Jesus to be the Son of God, because he said he was, and the Scriptures repeatedly tell us that's who he is: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, ...

Just as God created the universe, the angels and physical creatures he created Jesus. In Colossians 1:15 Jesus is called the "firstborn of all creation" and in verse 16 "For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been ...

Well the Biblical basis can be found in that Jesus often referred to himself as the 'Son of Man' which is a direct reference to the coming of the Messiah prophesied by the Prophet Daniel in the Old Testament. There is also the matter of Jesus claiming to be able to forgive sins. This is as direct a claim at Messiahship that a first century Jews could make. ...

Christianity believes Jesus is God, or more specifically one person in God - the others being the Father and the Holy Spirit. The questions appears to accept that Jesus and God the Father are to be treated as separate persons in the Trinity, but asks for the biblical basis for concluding that Jesus is Yahweh, not the doctrinal basis for any such conclusion. ...

Like many judicial systems, the Roman legal system had provisions for pardoning of crime. It is likely the appointed time for pardon appeals coincided with the passover because that was the time many of the Jews in the region came to the city. In other words, it was politically expedient for the governing officials to grant a request before the largest ...
