I received an MA in Old Testament from an Evangelical seminary, and some of my teachers were signers of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy. I can say that the MT is viewed simply as a strong witness as to what the text originally would have been. When there are different vocalizations, or textual variants based on other actual manuscripts, these are ...

In that day modesty was huge. Looking at the Strong's meanings it appears that Noah's sons took a robe and walked backwards to drop it on Noah's nakedness without looking. Ham stared at him which angered Noah. The meaning of the curse on Canaan is much more vague. It most likely a reference to Israel taking Canaanite land for themselves. Cursing Ham's ...

There are homosexual tones to this passage, especially in verse 24, suggesting that there was more involved than just seeing a man naked: 24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. But the interesting thing is it is not Ham who is cursed, but one of his sons, Canaan: Genesis 9:25-27: And he said, Cursed be ...

I have also heard that what it really means is that Ham did something inappropriate to Noah, but this is one of those translation issues where we don't have English words that directly correlate to the wording in the ...

Before and even after the Incarnation, the Jewish people have considered themselves to be set apart (Holy). Set apart not by Works, or by lineage or even by Ethnicity, they were set apart, made Holy, by Covenants made by God with man. This action done solely by the Grace of God set the people of God apart from all others. They were God’s Chosen people, ...

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 ...

From 1 Chronicles 22: David said to Solomon: “My son, I had it in my heart to build a house for the Name of the Lord my God. But this word of the Lord came to me: ‘You have shed much blood and have fought many wars. You are not to build a house for my Name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in my sight. But you will have a son who will be a man ...

There is one way in that it can be distinguished from Jewish scripture in the sense that the order of the canon is different, which certainly leads to a different reading of the texts. But from the time of the epistles it is clear that these (new testament) writings were being treated as just as authoritative as their Old Testament counterparts 2 Peter 3:16
