According to The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell, p125, Josephus, who died after 100AD, wrote of Jesus in his Jewish Antiquities, "...for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and then thousand other wonderful things concerning him." (Antiquities, XVIII, 33). However, those words are ...

The doctrine you are addressing is called Total Depravity. This question will actually say much more about it: What is the Biblical basis for Total Depravity? Various denominations have slightly different nuances to the idea, but typically the following verses are first up: Romans 3:10-11: "There is none is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; ...

What does the reference mean? The Witnesses use a rather odd and somewhat cryptic set of abbreviations for their publications. g94 11/8 10 is Awake! magazine, 8th of November, 1994, p. 10. jv 134 is Jehovah’s Witnesses—Proclaimers of God’s Kingdom (pub. 1993), p. 134. Many books also have another, less cryptic abbreviation. For example, jv is often ...

God created you, so for sure he knows you! God is also watching each one of us and he loves ❤ us. And yes, there are quotations, to be sure! Job 28:24 For he looks to the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens. 1 John 3:19-20 By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; for whenever our heart ...

I think you're looking for Hosea 4:6a: My people are ruined for lack of knowledge! This is part of a longer tirade against the priests of Israel, whom Hosea saw as leading Israel away from God (Hosea 4:1–6): But let no one accuse, let no one rebuke; with you is my dispute, priest! You will stumble in the day, and the prophet will ...

You may be thinking of Jeremiah 16:18: I will repay them double for their wickedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land with the lifeless forms of their vile images and have filled my inheritance with their detestable idols. (NIV) That's the closest thing I was able to come up with on a BibleHub.com search.

I'm pretty sure that there is no source that looks at only Jesus words. However there are certainly theological approaches that place a much greater emphasis on Jesus words. For a start you might want to look at Red Letter Christians, a group that attempts to redress what they see as an imbalance in North American Evangelicalism, which they believe has ...

The first published use of this phrase can be attributed to Cardinal Pole, in a speech given to the English Parliament in 1554, regarding England's return to Roman Catholicism under Queen Mary: This I protest before you, my commission is not of prejudice to any person. I come not to destroy, but to build: I come to reconcile, not to condemn: I am not ...

God, being the source of all intelligibility of creation, by His nature is all knowledgeable. Although many theists might view God as an 'impersonal force' of some kind, similar to the 'Force' in Star Wars, God is in fact not only personal, but more personal than we could ever imagine. This is due to God's omniscience. We are created in His image, and all ...

Update 2 Wednesday, October 08, 2014: The error in an article by an author of an article on the Vatican website CANNOT be attributable to the Catholic Church. Summary of the findings so far Is there evidence that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the LDS Church or, informally, the Mormon Church) officially teaches or has taught in the past ...

I understand that, today, the LDS Church does not teach that all non-LDS Christians are going to hell. However, in times past, this appears to have been precisely what was taught: The Book of Mormon indicates that there are only two churches, one true and one of the devil: "Behold there are save two churches only; the one is the Church of the Lamb of ...

There are a number of verses that suggest that all people are sinners, here are a handful: (all quotes are from the NRSV) Romans 3:23 "since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" 1 John 1:8 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." Ecclesiastes 7:20 "Surely there is no one on earth so ...

If you are referring to Christ's second coming: Your story implies that Jesus has come in some sort of secret way. Consider the implications of 1 Thessalonians 4:16: For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. (NIV) When ...

He discusses the tetragrammaton at several places in the grammar.1 In §102m he includes the vowel pointing patach-šĕwă-sĕgōl that leads to our English “Yahweh”. That is: יַהְוֶה‎. Elsewhere throughout the grammar he either uses the unpointed יהוה or the Masoretic יְהוָֹה (šĕwă'-ḥōlem-qāmeṣ; that is, the vowels of אֲדֹנָי ʾădōnāy 2). The relationship between ...

A passage whose interpretation clearly delineates Jesus as being greater than other prophets is the parable of the wicked tenants: 9 He went on to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. 10 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of ...

This story is preserved in Menologion of the Holy Tradition, When Joseph, after returning from Egypt, began to divide his land among his children born of his first wife,1 he also wished to give a portion to the Lord Jesus Who was born supernaturally and without corruption of the all-pure Virgin Mary, and Who was then but a little child. But three of ...

While not really a systematic theology book, John Piper's What Jesus Demands from the World is predominantly based on the gospels. There is a free PDF on that page. The book's blurb is: The four Gospels are filled with demands from Jesus. These demands are Jesus’ way of showing us who he is and what he expects of us. They are not harsh demands ...

Read Psalm 139. God knows everything about you Verses 1-5 O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have ...

The Complete Jewish Bible you are looking at (notably, not a Jewish translation at all) is following the numbering scheme of the Masoretic Text where that text corresponds with 2:16-17. In most Christian English translations, this is labeled 2:14-15. (JPS Tanakh and Judaica Press Tanach also use the Masoretic numbering.) The difference arises because the ...

Chuck Missler's commentary does not skirt around this issue. He explains this with the idea they had been corrupted genetically much like the pre-flood peoples resulting in Nephilim. Joshua Commentary by Chuck Missler

In this regard, two oft-quoted verses from the Psalms are as follows: The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good (Psalm 14:1 NAS). and The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God," They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; There is ...

1 Corinthians chapter 13 is called the Hymn of Love and is thought to be a pre-Pauline hymn that Paul was quoting. Perhaps the most beautiful English rendition of the poem or song is the the King James Bible, but unfortunately it translates ἀγάπην as 'charity', rather that 'love'. The Hymn of Love, from the KJV, amended to speak of 'love': 1 Though I ...

I can think of one verse that is recited by Apostle Paul. Acts 17:28 states, “In him we live, and move, and have our being as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.” Poetry was given in the Old Testament as an expression of the heart, mostly found in David’s heart, and that heart was also seen in Solomon. I think that we ...

The statement in question is an unsupported statement made by Rev. Dn. Dr. Brendan Pelphrey in an article he wrote on orthodox Christian theosis and deification in new religious movements, titled, "I said, you are gods." This article was published in Volume No. 13 of the periodical journal, "Spirituality in East and West". In the exact same publication, a ...

I am LDS. The LDS church does not teach that all other Christians will go to Hell. We believe that God is a just God and loves all of His children. That He wants all to return unto him. We believe all individuals are judged according to the light and knowledge s/he has received. The definition of "Heaven and Hell" is a topic of discussion I have been part ...

Fama Fratemitatis According to the Fama Fratemitatis, the origins of the saying appear to be from Christian Rosenkreuz (b.1378) who formed a small group in Germany in the early to mid 15th century for the purpose of inseminating a, "general reformation." This group created a series of Axiomata [Sayings] along with a secret dictionary, a mysterious wheel and ...

The story presupposes that Joseph had sons, so we can probably exclude the Western church in our search for the source. Catholic tradition came to hold Jerome’s ‘cousins’ theory of Jesus’ relation to James and his siblings, none of them children of Joseph. The story further suggests that James was Joseph’s eldest son; as primogenitor he would have received ...
