Which Bible has the true interpretation of the verse 1 John 5:7? I believe the trinity is a false teaching.

Please note: the middle parts of verses 7-8 (not here quoted but in the KJV) are spurious. Those words were added by scribes. Today, scholars agree that those omitted words are not part of the Bible. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) accurately translates this scripture passage.

In 1 John 5, the Apostle John is trying to express and prove […]

What is the relationship between Mary and God?

Question 1: Who was Mary?

Mary was the mother of Jesus. She was an ordinary yet remarkable Jewish woman who was chosen by God Jehovah to give birth to Jesus. The Messiah was to be of the tribe of Judah and of the lineage of David. Mary was a direct descendant of King David. Both Mary […]

I learned the real name of Jesus is Yahusha. Why does the Bible print his name Jesus? Only the Jewish Bible will tell of Yahusha. Please give me the proper answer.

Some believe a person must use the name of God’s only begotten Son in the Hebrew language. If people don’t use Yahusha, neither God nor his Son will recognize their prayers. They may even doubt their salvation. However, all of the New Testament books (except for the Gospel of Matthew) were originally written in Greek. […]

The thing today called "tongues" is not a language of some people here on Earth as it was at Pentecost. Are today's tongues biblical?

In the Greek, the word translated as tongues is γλῶσσα, glōssa, meaning the literal tongue or a language. ​

When the gift of tongues (speaking in foreign languages) was first given at Pentecost, we know these languages were definitely understood by foreigners. Act 2:7-8, 11 (NIV), “Utterly amazed, they asked: ‘Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? […]

What does it mean in Ezekiel 33:5 when it says. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning, his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

Consider the prophet Ezekiel and his role in Israel. God had chosen Israel to be in relationship with Him. “You only have I known from all the families of the earth,” Amos 3:2.  Ezekiel was appointed a watchman over Israel when they were captive in Babylon. “Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman […]

When was the apostle Paul's name changed from Saul to Paul and who changed it?

There is a common thought that the Apostle Paul received a miraculous change of name as he began his ministry.  Some might suppose that the change occurred at the time of his dramatic conversion ( Acts 9:1-31). However, there is no mention of a name change in this context. ​

The book of Acts uses the name Saul […]

Why was Saul jealous of David?

God chose the strong, capable Saul as Israel’s first king. Saul began his reign humbly and reverently.   

However, over time, King Saul put his desires before God’s will and over Israel’s well-being.  Saul’s reverence for God gradually diminished.

Once, Saul was instructed to wait seven days for the prophet Samuel to offer a sacrifice. But Saul […]

What are Ancient Manuscripts? and why are they important?

Ancient manuscripts are texts “written” (Latin: scripta) “by hand” (Latin: manu) that date far back into the past.  Where biblical manuscripts are concerned, ancients manuscripts are very important because the older they are, the closer they tend to be to the original text.  ​

This is vital if we want to know what was actually said by […]

When God appeared to Moses, the bush was on fire but was not burnt up. Question: what does that scene stand for?

When the bush was on fire but not consumed, it was an indication that something supernatural was happening. This unnatural occurrence attracted Moses’s attention.

Exodus 3:2-6, “And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with […]
