comment What did Paul mean when he called Jesus the firstborn of the dead?
It is noteworthy to remember that Jesus said that he came to fulfill the law, and to also remember that he said that all the prophets had written about him. Jesus life on earth was truly a complete reflection of Old Testament, and all that is recorded about his life is traceable back to the old testament and especially the Prophets. Just as God breathed the breath of life into man, Jesus breathed eternal life into the souls of his followers.

comment Were the similarities between the miracles of Elisha and Jesus deliberate or simply coincidental?
All of what you say is correct, however, please remember that all Jews were familiar with the Pentateuch and the Prophets. They were taught them from an early age, and they would have been apt to see those similarities. Jesus wanted the people to associate him with the prophets and even likened his death and resurrection to Jonas three days in the belly of the fish.

comment When did the “upside down cross” become a sign of anti-Christianity?
@Jesse If the Satanic cross predates the book that's okay but it was the earliest depiction of a inverted cross where it was tied to an evil, I could find at the time, and that is why I made the statement Apparently. In truth that is not a subject I have spent a lot of time contemplating or researching. My goal is to learn as much as I can about the Bible and only got into the subject researching the Apostle Peter and the other Apostles deaths.

@Jesse as I said in my answer most of it came from memory. I do not really care that you down voted my answer, but your edit does lend creditability to my first paragraph. As far as the date of the Black Sabbath being wrong on the date is my fault I am not and never have been a fan of that group, I found the cover illustrated somewhere during my studies, I do not remember where and did not make a copy of it. I will try to find it and let you know where it is located.

comment When does temptation become a sin?
You appear to have completely missed the point of what Jesus was saying. He was in no way saying that thoughts are the same as actions. Temptation never will be sin! otherwise Jesus who was tempted in All ways in which anyone can be tempted could not be sinless. What Jesus was referring to was the state of the heart in that if one dwells on sinfulness; and does not evict it from his heart, he is no better off than if he had committed the act. As far as leading us into temptation; if God allowed his son to prove himself through temptation, why should we be exempted?

@zippy2006 You can call her anything you like but I'll bet the child calls her mother.

comment Is the Doctrine of Resurrection of the Dead expressed in Pentateuch?
From whose perspective? You are going to have to be more specific as to a Denomination or sect of Christianity since answers will vary widely.

comment If we are the bride, who are the invited?
@User In order to understand that you must leave the Material realm and see it in the Spiritual realm. Marriage in the Kingdom of God is not the same as marriage in our world. There it means the melding of the two into one. Which is exemplified in Scripture, where the partners leave their parents and become one. In the Kingdom of God marriage is much more than the physical uniting it is the total absorption of the two into a singular. As the father and the son are one in spirit so will the saved be one in God, a common spirit.
