“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Mark 13:32. When Jesus spoke these words, the Father had not revealed to Jesus the time of his return. But this does [...]
Jesus was and is the Son of God… Jesus was a spirit being before he was born on earth. Jesus was called “the Word” and he created all things as God’s representative and through God’s power and name. Proverbs 8:23 - 30 (New Living Version), “I was [...]
No, Judas was not a relative of Jesus. The Judas who betrayed our Lord was named Judas Iscariot. This name is explained in John 6:71, “Judas the son of Simon Iscariot.” (ESV) In the Bible, he was never identified as a family member of [...]
John 11:35-36, 38 (RSV), “Jesus wept. So the Jews said, ‘See how he loved him!’…Then Jesus, deeply moved again, came to the tomb…” The scriptures explain why Jesus cried; it was because Jesus was personally feeling the great loss of His dear friend. He [...]
2 Peter 1:21 (NIV), “For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” Zacharias was moved by the Holy Spirit. Luke 1:68-70 is the first division of this [...]
Summary: Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy helps us to calculate the date Jesus presented Himself as the Messiah. At the beginning of the 69th. week, when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River, the Holy Spirit anointed our Lord. Here, Jesus became the Messiah (the [...]
Summary: Throughout Jesus’ ministry on earth, he was preaching the redemption and securing the possession of all that was lost at the fall. Discussion: Jesus explained his mission in Luke 19:10, “for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that [...]
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. Jesus declared, “‘But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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. [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
“Blessed are the poor in spirit (humble-minded) for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.” The Greek word translated “poor” has the significance of utter destitution, extreme poverty. Thus, a full appreciation of our own spiritual destitution is essential in order to receive the divine [...]
