Questions On John 5

Published: April 17, 2024
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 16, 2024
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 16, 2024
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 15, 2024
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.

More On The Sabbath Rest

Published: April 12, 2024
Q

In Numbers 15 the Lord instructs the children of Israel how to make atonement for sins committed out of ignorance. Then in verse 30, He tells us of a man who sinned presumptuously, knowingly, and willingly and that his iniquity shall be upon him. In the next few verses, a man gathering sticks on the Sabbath was put to death. Seems like there was no atonement or sacrifice that would save him because he didn’t do it out of ignorance. Does this example have any applicability for Christians today?
