1 Esdras Chapter 5 Discussion



 
  • Faith Page on 1 Esdras 5
    I have only just discovered the books of Esdras and am enthralled. Thank you so much for posting them and explaining why the Apocrypha is no longer part of the Bible as we know it. I find some connections between Esdras and the book of Revelation. My questions are: 1) Do you think there could be any connection between the eagle that ruled over the Earth in 2 Esdras, Chapter 7 and the "snare of the fowler" in Psalm 91? Also, who do you think "Jesus" was in the books of Esdra? Could he possibly be Isaiah? I know that, supposedly the Entity of Jesus did not exist until the virgin birth. However, I've always been drawn to Isaiah as above all of the other prophets and even wondered if he might be the Spirit of Jesus in a human form prior to His later birth of the Virgin Mary. His prophesies spanned many years after he died and I don't believe the explanation that the book of Isaiah was written by different people. He is the one who prophesied most about the MESSIAH and Jesus of Nazareth quoted him a lot. Also, the manner in which Isaiah is said to have died... Any thoughts for me?

    Thank you,

    Faith

    It was not canonized into KJV Bible.

    Go back out to the red area where you came in, and the book Link is out there.

    You'll need to go to Google to search the history.

    I believe the most high dose not change he said not to add nor subtract from his word we must stay and ad be obedient to his comment so it was not his will for anyone to take any of his word away from the rest of his word sin is sin

    Well I believe it like this, I believe God is still in control, and the bible was spirit led and if he wanted them added when HIS BOOK was put together, he would have had them added. I believe God led their hearts the way he wanted his word put together. God always has been, is still and always will be IN CONTROL!

    Agreed. It may not have been God 's will for previous generations to have had this knowledge accessible to them. They may not have needed it as much as our current generations will. I truly believe we do need it now more than ever, as it appears that much of the past is prophesied to come around full circle. Thank Gods and Goddess for their Divine Plan!

    I couldn 't agree more. Who is anyone to say which words should the common people see. How deceiving for only those who seek the truth will find it when it was freely given to all creation to know our God and His Son.

    (This is my response to David E. Phelps's 1 Esdras Chapter 5 comment on 10/27/2013, 8:31am).. Please be specific and identify exactly some if not all of your basis in saying that King James did the removal of anything from Holy Scriptures.
  • David E. Phelps on 1 Esdras 5
    I believe it is a very sad and great loss to the world; when a man with just the powers of a mortal king, orders the words of a king that created everything ever created, because he, the mortal king, did not see the importance in it. IT IS THE WORD OF GOD YAHWEY and NO MAN has the right to say what is or what is not HOLY!!

    The above is my responce of the REMOVAL of anything from HOLY SCRIPTURES by king James, who gave hime the right to do that? NO ONE!!
