In John 3, why did the law master Nicodemus go to see Jesus by night since he was a believer???

This story is found in John 3:1-21. Nicodemus was a Pharisee, a teacher of the law. He also was a wealthy man who would have had social status and influence in the Jewish community. Faithful Jews embraced the Abrahamic promise, “In thee and thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis […]

What do the scriptures say about extraterrestrial or alien life contacting earth? Is there life on other planets?

The Bible does not specifically comment about life on other planets. Will God create extraterrestrial life? Perhaps. God creates nothing in vain. Respecting the creation of earth, Isaiah wrote, “For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens — He is the God who formed the earth and made it, He established it and did […]

Were Adam and Eve Jewish? Who was the first Jewish person and the first Gentile person?

No, Adam and Eve were not Jewish.​

John the Baptist sent his disciples to ask Jesus if he was the Messiah or should he expect another one. Did he doubt Jesus was the Messiah or there is another hidden meaning?

Matthew 11:2-5, 7, 10-11 (NET) “2 Now when John heard in prison about the deeds Christ had done, he sent his disciples to ask a question: 3 ‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?’ 4 Jesus answered them, ‘Go tell John what you hear and see: 5 The […]

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?

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 […]
