Eli writes, "This text is most often read as an instance of Yeshua’s general lack of clarity on the topic. However, the request should not be read..."
Eli writes, "To put it simply, it was implicit in the committee’s questioning that John had no authority to carry out this mass Israelite water ceremony."
Eli writes,"On one occasion Jesus gave orders to Peter and John to prepare for the Passover ahead of the disciples’ arrival: 'Enter a city, then look for a man carrying a jar of water. Follow him and ask the person in charge to offer hospitality.' This is exactly what happened."
Eli writes, "The day has come. A special assembly has been convened by James in Jerusalem. Luke describes an impressive group of Judean, Galilean and Diaspora-based elders and apostles that have been persuaded that Jesus is indeed Israel’s Messiah."
Eli writes, "In English, these words are technical navigational terms, but Hebrew is an extremely physical language and the origin of these words is tied to the environment."
Eliyahu writes, "Most modern Christ-followers mistakenly think that the New Testament states that the Jewish people rejected Jesus... But is their reading of the New Testament itself accurate?"
Eliyahu writes, "In an early interaction, God told Moses that He will send his angel to guide Israel along the way. The people of Israel were warned not to disobey God’s messenger, because he would not forgive their transgressions."
Eliyahu writes, "As part of his argument, while admonishing Peter to live in accordance with the Gospel, Paul stated that he (Peter) while being a Judean, “lived” as a member of the nations and not (uniquely) as a Judean (Gal.2:14)."
Eliyahu writes, "There are certain texts in the Bible that make modern Christ-followers cringe. Among the most difficult is the statement of Jesus about hating one’s father and mother in order to be his true disciple (Luke 14:26)."
Eliyahu writes, "When asked, almost no one in the Christian world can answer this simple question. What very important rule did the Apostle Paul set in all his congregations?"
