Jesus not able to do many works of power?

June 1st, 2009

Why does it say in Mark 6:5 that Jesus was not able to do many works of power while in Nazareth? XT Mark 6:1-6 6:1 So He went out from there [Capernaum], then He came into His own {native} country [Nazareth]; with His disciples accompanying Him. 6:2 And when {the} Sabbath {day} had come, He […]

Wine in the Bible

May 25th, 2009

I heard a pastor saying that the wine Jesus drank had no alcohol in it, but was just pure grape juice. What is the New Testament word for wine? Does it refer to something with or without alcohol? Was that pastor right? He is a very legalistic person, and I wonder if it has something […]

May 19th, 2009

Mr. Bluedorn, What pronunciation style do you follow in your materials?

Mark 15:28

May 5th, 2009

In the email you sent me concerning James 4:5 you mention Mark 15:28. Well, that verse simply does not exist in the NIV – both in Spanish and English! Would you know why?

Greek and Hebrew Texts

February 28th, 2009

I was looking at interlinear Greek-Hebrew-English Bibles, and wasn’t sure which one I should get. I want to get a reliable manuscript. I thought I had remembered that the Masoretic Text (Hebrew) and the Textus Receptus (Greek) were considered the most authentic. One other choice was the Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia (Hebrew). Can you tell me […]

English Standard Version — ESV

February 21st, 2009

I have a great desire for my children to memorize scripture and have signed up the oldest for a spelling bee type competition as I know she will think it great fun. My problem is I want to be consistent with scriptures. The church we go to has them memorize in NIV and NASB but […]

Regarding Rules of Interpretation of Scripture

February 5th, 2009

The meaning of the individual parts of a passage of Scripture (or any other writing) is determined by the larger context in which the parts are found. However, when we happen to have a fixed agenda — a list of things we want to prove from Scripture — we can contort Scripture out of context […]

Modern Greek versus Biblical Greek

January 19th, 2009

I am teaching my 2 girls (6 & 8yo) Greek with the help of a Greek friend. What are the differences between modern and ancient Greek that we need to be aware of in this situation? Jen Kelly The letters of the alphabet are the same, but the diacritical notation is a little different — […]
