Was Jesus created? Yes. The Son was created by the Father, both spiritually before the creation of the world, and then later physically when he was born of Mary. Mankind's spirits were also created the Father, and in that sense LDS doctrine understands Jesus to be the elder spirit brother of mankind. And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-...

This period of 'silence' may correspond to the seventy weeks prophecy of Daniel. There is a hint in the seventy weeks vision to a coming absence of visions and prophecy: Seventy weeks are decreed for your people and your holy city: to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal ...

Adding to David Stratton's very good answer, consider also that there is no instance recorded in the Scriptures of a person being saved after death. Ananias and Sapphira would be good candidates for this, if it were available, but we read of no such thing. This leads to one of two conclusions: Either there simply will be no opportunity after death for ...

There are two considerations. One is to establish the fact of roughly 400 years of silence based on writings of that time area. In other words, this is in fact how those of that time understood that there was silence. Two is to then establish if this is shown in Scripture and specifically the Old Testament. In other words, since we know they believed ...

The Protestant view has been taken from the Jews. It was the Jews who did not recognise the apocryphal writings as inspired. A personal view is that the 62 weeks in Daniel 9:25 is 434 years of prophetic silence from the end of the OT (with the completion of Nehemiah) in 408 BC, to the start of the ministry of John the Baptist. This is based on a ...

When Jesus said that the scribes and Pharisees would be charged for the murder of all the prophets, that is, from Abel to Zechariah, he indicated what he considered to be the Hebrew canon. He was speaking according to the traditional Jewish canon, in which Chronicles is listed as the last book and in which Zechariah is killed at 2 Chronicles 24:20, 21. ...

In Amos 8, the prophet declares (NIV trans.): 11 “The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign Lord, “when I will send a famine through the land— not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord. 12 People will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the Lord, but ...

What is the biblical basis of Immaculate Conception? Scriptures can only be understood thru the Created Wisdom of God in Proverbs 8:22. Jesus is the Wisdom of God; the following verses support this teaching: "But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus who became to us wisdom from God and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.( 1Corinthian 1:30 )...

Pope Pius IX—who, in Ineffabilis Deus, defined the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, that Mary was conceived without Original Sin—cites: Luke 1:28 ("Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women."), 42 ("Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb."):The AnnunciationWhen the Fathers and writers of the ...

Building on what Ray Butterworth has described as the convention in translating Hebrew to English, here are 4 good examples highlighting the difference between usage #1, #4, #5, #6. I provide the original Hebrew text courtesy of the Logos Bible Software's Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible. Notice how the original Hebrew word yhwh is translated to English as ...

The all upper-case "LORD" and "GOD" are used where the original Hebrew used the sacred name of god, YHWH (יהוה). Traditionally, that four letter name (Tetragrammaton) is not supposed to be pronounced except by the high priests on the Day of Atonement. To avoid accidentally saying it while reading the Hebrew scriptures, incorrect vowel marks are added to ...

In the Old Testament, Exodus 20:2, in the part with the 10 commandments, God says to Moses "I AM the Lord your God". And a textural explanation for why this is the case is: The conventional "the LORD" in English translations renders יהוה in the Hebrew text (transliterated "YHWH"), the proper name of the God of Israel, reconstructed as Yahweh. The ...
