Discussion for Luke 20

  • Houston for verse 36
    It is my belief that a true bible resurrection is rising with an incorruptible body neither can they die anymore so it is my belief that Lazarus was not a bible resurrection but a bringing to life that he died with a natural body hence he died again or else he and the widow son is still here or Luke wrote wrong when he said neither can they die anymore!!

    Bryan, your comment on 2 2, the answer is context. In John 1:1 an "a " is completely out of context and would create multiple god 's. The first and greatest commandment is this "the Lord our God is one, and you shall worship Him with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your soul, and with all your strength. " He is ONE not many.

    In this chapter Jesus Warns us about the people that leads us, always conform to the Word of God. Just always Read the Word of God......God Bless....
  • RNM 20-4
    LUKE 20-4...Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts 47 Which devour widows ' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation. Sounds like the churches of today. AMEN!
  • why is it that the king James can put the "a " to have it say "a god " here but not have it in John 1:1 for the same Greek word and sentence structure?
  • Brianna for verse 21
    This scripture is interesting. Even his enemies couldn 't deny Jesus truthful teachings. Perhaps they were trying to flatter him, or appease the crowd, but they understood that Jesus taught the truth. Because he taught the truth , he gained so much criticism from the Pharisees.
