If your child does something wrong and they dont know you know about what they did then they will keep it to themselves, but when you ask them a question regarding what they did wrong then they will be scared and not know how to answer you without trying to lie and cover up what they did. So by asking questions is letting that person know you know what they ...

If I understand what you’re asking correctly, I don’t think that the anointing of oil was the actual burial. Jesus was buried in the tomb. Jesus was buried because 1. It was the normal thing to do 2. It was prophesied in Isaiah 53:9 “And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any ...

"burying" here just means "to put into the grave", not necessarily "under the earth". Jesus died and was buried in a cave, before his resurrection. Talking about his burial is anouncing to his disciples that he is going to die. (as he does many times in the NT)

It's an odd question. Surely you know that God needs nothing. He lived for an eternity before he made the Universe. For an eternity, before God made the Universe, with its food and water, there was literally nothing except God. He didn't need anything then, and he doesn't need anything now outside of himself. Perhaps you are wondering if Christianity ...

In short God is the progenitor of all things, nothing exists outside of Him therefore He is all sufficient and in need of nothing. Especially not food or water. The question ought to be qualified because Jesus the second person in the echâd Godhead has existed as God in four different forms. And whilst incarnate because of the limitations of the body ...

No. God exists necessarily, it is his essence to exist. Therefore, He can not not to exist. We see this from scripture also, Exodus 3:14: God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you. From this follows that God does not need anything that is extrinsic to Him to sustain Him. Also note that ...

There are a lot of biblical insights we can draw from this encounter. Look for example at Johns description of the worlds temptations For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:16 NKJV Jesus experiences these three in his encounter with ...

The Bible speaks of the scriptures being twisted. This is Peter speaking about Paul's letters. Many of which are in the Bible. 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures. 2 ...

While Paul Chernoch's excellent answer addresses the general case, in the specific example you cite there is no significant difference in the message. You write " should not or shall not ... which would indicate that it could happen but not guaranteed." But the conditional is only one possible meaning of "should". Although should can be used to imply the ...

Between God's speaking and our hearing, many steps intervene: The prophet hears from God, either face-to-face (Moses), or through dreams, or visions The prophet speaks The scribe records Other scribes copy A translator reads and renders the Word in a new language in which the words and idioms do not correspond exactly to their original intent That language ...

As others correctly note, God knew in advance that Pharaoh would refuse the seemingly unimposing request that Moses presented to him; allow the people of Israel to journey three days into the wilderness to sacrifice to God. That Pharaoh refused is somewhat understandable. Like any tyrannical ruler he would assume that allowing an enslaved body of people to ...
