Matthew 27:9-10, "Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value; And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me."
The sole reason this needs to be believed is because the writer of Matthew's account was given by the Holy Spirit.
Two facts to note:
1. The writings by Jeremaiah have been edited. There are today two editions...
Metonymy is a figure of speech where something is not called by its own name or description, but by something closely related. For example, the White house for a Presidential administration, or Hollywood for the film industry.
It is possible that the "righteousness of God" does not actually refer to God's perfection, His own righteousness, but rather is used metonymically for God's redemptive work through Christ.
Thus to be seeking the righteousness of God through (by means of) faith in...
I still don't follow you. Your words speak like you are not Trinitarian.
I don't want to derail a conversation on suffering, so I'm bringing this discussion to another post.
I referred to John 3:34. For he whom God has sent speaks the words of God: for God gives not the Spirit by measure unto him.
Here are some other scriptures to consider:
2 Kings 2:9 And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from...
Because of a recent inquiry (brought on by a comment here) I’ve been reading The Papers of Martin Luther King Jr. (on Stanford University’s The Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute).
I want to start off by saying that my comments in no way disparage his contributions in the Civil Right’s Movement. This is another topic entirely.
Martin Luther King pastored one church (from 1954 to 1960), the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church in Montgomery AL. He is often...
Almost all Christians would claim to believe we were justified by faith, and perhaps quote Romans 3:28, which says we are justified by faith and not by the works of the Law. If pressed, many Christians would define “works of the law” as the actions we take to conform to the requirements of the Law, rather than what the “law” actually accomplishes, which is to make us aware of our sin and lead us to Christ.
So lets back up and ask the question, justified by whose faith? Does our faith...
Matthew 28:19 (Greek NT) πορευθεντες ουν μαθητευσατε παντα τα εθνη βαπτιζοντες αυτους εις το ονομα του πατρος και του υιου και του αγιου πνευματος
Matthew 28:19 (Wycliffe Bible, 1382) Therfor go ye, and teche alle folkis, baptisynge hem in the name of the Fadir, and of the Sone, and of the Hooli Goost...
I recently once again ran across an interpretation of Matthew 28:19 that I first heard years ago. It is that this command means something like “as you go, make disciples in all nations.”...
I am on my third BBN course. I really enjoyed the first two classes, but the one I am taking right now is painful for me, though.
I loved 10500 Dispensational Theology. I took it slow and took lots of notes. The information is organized and presented in a fairly consistent manner, and things that I wanted to write down were said slowly and more than once. I want to take everything that this professor teaches! Final Grade 100%
10600 Doctrine of the New Birth is solid and there are no...
We do not perform Christian duties in order to our being delivered from wrath; but we preform them because we are delivered. A man will work for Christ who has tasted of Christ's loving-kindness: he stands ready to shew forth the praise of that glorious grace which hath so freely saved him. Such a man is a glad to work for Christ's sake as if he was to work for his own salvation. There are many ingenious persons in the world, who would be more ready to serve a friend that has already raised...
