First, the term "children" is a poor translation in the KJV. It's better rendered "youths," which really changes the meaning of the story. Imagine being accosted by more than 40 teens at once, intent on making trouble for you, outside of town. This was no simple mocking; Elisha's life could very well have been in danger, and there's no indication that he ...

In order to answer the question it is necessary to first understand what Daniel meant by 70 weeks. We are given a clue in verse 2: Daniel 9:2 KJV In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations ...

Why do people feel that there is a break in the Seventy weeks between the 69th and the 70th? Verse twenty-four begins with a direct declaration of whom this prophecy focuses upon, i.e., thy people (Jews) thy holy city (Jerusalem). Any interpretation of this prophecy, which ignores or overlooks this fact, must be entirely disregarded. Six ...

King David in Psalm 22 Psa 22:15-18 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. (16) For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. (17) I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. (18) ...

JESUS declares to Pilate that HIS kingdom is not of this world, and further confirms that HE is a KING born for a purpose. Prophet is different from a King.

These Traditions do not argue for prophetic succession, simply because the biblical role of prophet is inherently different from the biblical role of apostle, making it impossible to conceptually assign succession to both. First, let’s compare the words ...

But as always trying to steer the discussions and clarify. Gods word and bring His ...
