Questions On John 5

Published: April 14, 2017 (Originally published: April 19, 2007)
Q

I’m doing a study in the Gospel of John, and I’m in Chapter 5.

Vs. 25 & 28 refer to “an hour” – is that referring to the giving of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost? Or is it referring to His resurrection? Vs. 28 seems to be pointing to the final resurrection.

This “hour” seems to correspond with the giving of eternal life, an event in the future. Was eternal life imparted to OT saints only after Jesus’ resurrection? I’m thinking of the verse in Matthew 27 where the tombs were opened and “many” were resurrected.

I find it interesting that in vs. 37, Jesus says that “you have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form”. But in vs. 25 & 28, Jesus is talking about “hearing the voice”. Is there any correlation there?

Sins Or Faults? Does It Matter?

Published: April 13, 2017 (Originally published: April 27, 2012)
Q

I have recently had some problems with two brothers who think we should confess our sins to each other according to James 5:16 whereas I believe we confess only to God because only God can forgive sins! The KJV states faults whereas the majority if not all other versions of the bible state sins in the verse in James. What is the answer? Does it matter?

Twice On Sunday?

Published: April 13, 2017 (Originally published: April 22, 2007)
Q

My wife and I disagree over the topic of how many times on Sunday we must attend church. We both come from Baptist backgrounds but I was always a Sunday morning person and she was raised in the belief that you should attend twice on Sunday. I work a lot through the week and weekends are the only time I have to get all the chores around the house completed. Does it state anywhere in the Bible that it is “required” to attend church twice on Sunday, or is this just an individual choice?

Why Did The Lord Linger On Earth, Follow Up

Published: April 12, 2017 (Originally published: April 26, 2009)
Q

Regarding the question about what did Christ do on earth during the time between his Resurrection and Pentecost. I’m surprised that you didn’t mention that there are 50 days between the Jewish Feast of the First-fruits, and the Feast of Pentecost. Jesus was on earth for 40 days after His resurrection. 10 days after His Ascension was Pentecost. This was the fulfillment of those feasts.

A Question About Resurrection Morning

Published: April 11, 2017 (Originally published: March 27, 2016)
Q

I have a question about Resurrection Morning. If I understand it correctly, on a Jewish calendar the Sabbath will end when the sun sets on Saturday correct? Does that mean that Resurrection Morning will begin at that time, and that Jesus could have come out of the tomb anytime after sundown Saturday?

Also, I was wondering what leads you to believe that Jesus was born in late-September during Rosh Hashanah? Thank you for answering my questions!

Bible Translations

Published: April 11, 2017 (Originally published: April 24, 2007)
Q

My bible of choice is now a parallel bible containing both KJV and NIV. I made this choice largely because of you – because you use the NIV and I’m an ardent student of your material. In using my new bible I was surprised to find out that some verses in the KJV are intentionally absent in the NIV. I’m sure your aware of this and so I was wondering about your position on using the NIV. Just to be clear – I think using both is valuable and I can’t imagine not using both in my own study.

A Question About Elijah

Published: April 11, 2017 (Originally published: April 24, 2007)
Q

If Jesus said that John the Baptist was Elijah, does that mean Elijah’s spirit was in John or was Elijah reborn as John? What? I’m confused!

Anyway, if that was possible, do you think that Elijah’s spirit may be instilled in another person in our day and age. How will we know? What signs should we look for. How would we recognize this person as God’s emissary and not the evil one? Do you believe it is possible for Elijah to be among us now in the personage of another man of God?

Are Some Gifts Only For Men?

Published: April 10, 2017 (Originally published: April 29, 2012)
Q

Thank you for your incredible website! I read it daily and enjoy it tremendously. My question concerns healing. I cannot recall or find a single instance in the Bible where a woman healed someone. Is this a gift that is reserved only for men? The only mention of spiritual gifts pertaining to women that I recall are the ability to prophesy. Can you shed some light on this for me? Considering how women were to conduct themselves during services by remaining silent, are the abilities bestowed by the Holy Spirit (with the exception of prophesy) only available to men?

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, or stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night.
