there is need for more revelation of Gods word


Ben Weaver's comment on 2011-01-15 17:04:43:

V.6. The word scourge brings up an image in my mind that I believe to be different than the writer of Hebrews meant to convey. When Jesus was scourged for our sins, I was told his skin was severely lacerated to the point that, as a strong man, he couldn't drag the cross. Such a painfully violent whipping seems to clash with the discipling methods Jesus used on his followers. Although we believe the message "Hebrews" was inspired by God, could it be that most translators chose a less than ideal word? Scourgeth is translated from the Gr. word "Mastigoi", of which the root is also used as "plagues" in Mk. 3:10 & 5:29. Maybe, God allowed the plague of fear and denial on Peter to reveal that his own good determination was inadequate. When Peter, in the flesh, meant well, Jesus responded by saying,"Get thee behind me Satan'. In a sense; a scouraging. Maybe God allows us to hurt in various ways from our religious ambitions so we turn to the spirit of life in Christ Jesus. Open to correction.
