In our survey of the divine claims of Jesus recorded throughout the Synoptics and the Gospel of John, we note a rather strange exclusion: nowhere in the Gospel accounts do we see Jesus saying “I Am God.” Is this proof that Jesus did not believe He was God or were His followers simply mistaken?
Paul instructs us in Romans to bless others rather than curse them. But is this in opposition with his instruction to the Galatians and Corinthians?
A debate I’ve come to be aware of recently is the question of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Do we receive the Spirit when we are saved or do we receive it later?
Do modern translations of the Bible remove verses that teach about the blood of Christ?
In part three of my look into the modern Bible translation controversy, I take a dive into the claims of missing verses in our modern translations. Are verses missing because of an elaborated conspiracy or is the answer a lot simpler than what it’s made out to be?
In the second of my multi-part look into the modern Bible translation war, I’ll take a deeper dive into the process of translation itself. I’ll also introduce the three major forms of translation.
This is the start of a new series that will look into the debate of the various translations of the Bible that have been formulated over the centuries. Where did we get our English translations and is there really only one right translation or can we trust all of our major translations?
What does Paul mean when he speaks of God distributing a measure of faith to those in the body of Christ? Is faith a thing that can be measured and bottled up?
Does the Bible err when it calls a whale a fish or are the critics merely holding a double standard?
During Jesus’s final few hours on the cross we find Him handing the care of His mother, Mary, to John, the beloved disciple. But didn’t Jesus have brothers? Did He forget about them or was there another reason for His decision?
Does Paul tell us to do away with the genealogies in Matthew, Luke, and elsewhere?
As people who believe in a God who is both sovereign and loving do we show a lack of faith if we mourn for the suffering or passing of a loved one?
One of the most beloved Scriptures in the Bible is Philippians 4:13 wherein Paul encourages His readers that all things are possible through Christ who strengthens him. But are we reading the verse the way Paul intended it to be read?
Was John the Baptist Elijah, or not? Let’s take a look at this supposed Bible contradiction.
Here’s another supposed Bible contradiction well refuted by The Domain For Truth.
For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Jesus forewarn the apostles of His death and resurrection?
