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?

A Canaanite woman appealed to our Lord to heal her daughter. The child was possessed of a demon, an unclean spirit, and was suffering greatly. The mother cried to the Lord for help. But on this occasion, our Lord acted very differently from his custom. Although usually prompt to sympathize and to heal, Jesus paid […]

Luke 10:42 says “only one thing is needed”. What does only one thing mean?

Luke 10:38-42 (NLT), “38 …a woman named Martha welcomed him (Jesus) into her home. 39 Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord's feet, listening to what he taught. 40 But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, ‘Lord, doesn't it seem unfair to you that my […]

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 […]

Why is Jesus called the bread of life?

We know that literal bread is a food that supports life.  A person could live on bread and water alone!  So it is a beautiful picture of Jesus’ sacrifice. Jesus gave his human body, his life, to give men life.  John 6:51, “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this […]

Is the great commission the only command of Christ for right standards with God? What must you obey to obey Christ?

After his resurrection, Jesus told his disciples, “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…teaching them to observe all that I commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20. This is sometimes referred to as the Great Commission. As followers of Christ, we are all given this work to go out and share the good news.​

But all that […]

Who does Jesus love most?

Quite simply, He loves His Father in heaven the most. Jesus told us the most important commandment is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind….” Matthew 22:36. Certainly, that was what Jesus did. 

The depth of His love for God was demonstrated on the […]

When was Jesus crucified? It was not Friday, because He said He would be dead three days and three nights

This can certainly be a puzzling question! By our way of counting, the third day would seem to be on Monday, but it seems the phrase "for three days" can really indicate parts of three days. He was in the grave for part of Friday, all of  Saturday, and part of Sunday, so parts of […]
