My question is when Job was written. I am not necessarily wondering when the events in Job took place, nor am I asking when the bulk of the content was written (in the case of redaction) — though these things may be relevant data points. …

16 Then they moved on from Bethel. While they were still some distance from Ephrath, Rachel began to give birth and had great difficulty. 17 And as she was having great difficulty in childbirth, the midwife said to her…
God inspired his name in the OT with nearly 6800 spots. Why? Because God wants it there. As well OT is quoted in the NT over 200 times where the name belongs in the OT. Why was it removed? Wicked men who feared taking God’s name in vain re…

In Revelation 13:1 (KJV), we see a picture of
… a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Yet in vs 3, we find:
And I saw one of…
If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.

The nation was desperate for leadership. His improbable but swift ascent to fill the vacuum was as dramatic as it was unlikely. Humanly speaking, it was propelled solely at the behest of a praying mother. Outside of her influence, the rest of his family’s situation was, to say the least, dysfunctional. In fact, the lessons […]

In John 20:24-25 one reads
But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
Then, Thomas answered as if he really believed what was in front of him (John 20:28)
And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
To which Jesus replied
Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
As Jesus only addresses the component of the vision, does it mean that for Thomas that was enough?
Emphasis throughout the verses was mine.
Another question on this passage, on a different topic, that one might like to read: When Jesus tells Thomas to reach out his hand and ‘put it into’ his side, was he wearing clothing covering his side?
As we enter the High Holy Days commemorating the death and resurrection of the Christ that all who believe in him should not perish, but have everlasting life, it is fitting that we understand exactly what was the “Last Supper.” The traditional Christian concept of the Last Supper is Christ having dinner with his disciples […]
