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 […]

Narrate the circumstances that made Jesus Christ assert that "those who take the sword die by the sword"?

The events leading up to Jesus’ declaration included the Last Supper; Jesus’ prophecy that Peter would deny Him; an explanation that things were now changing.

In Matthew 15 :24-30, Jesus said "it is not right to take the the children bread and toss it to the dog." Did Jesus insult the woman?

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 […]

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. […]

Please explain Mathew 10:23, “When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.”

These instructions were given primarily to the twelve Apostles. Doubtless, they understood them to mean that their mission was not to stay long in a place. As persecution arose, and the people were unwilling to hear their message, they were to go to other cities and villages. The time for their special testimony of the Kingdom […]

Did the saints who died in the Old Testament rise after Jesus' resurrection or will they rise after he returns?

The scriptures say that all the saints that die before the second presence of Christ will remain in the grave until his return. (I Thessalonians 4:16) The order of resurrection is also spoken of as the sounding of the last trumpet when the dead shall be raised. (I Corinthians 15:51-52).  These scriptures show that the […]
