    The Grace of God is to all, the law of Moses was not to make you or us live Holy before God, but to show how much we could not, thus God Is Love and His Grace is not to one people, it has appeared to all, Thus Jesus Christ the Son Of God. To have eternal life is to know God.

    Mortal clothing is speaking of the thoughts of the terrestrial brain. The immortal, then, would be the celestial thoughts. That is to mortify the carnal, to find the straight way home! To stand straight: do not bend, do not bow, do not break: as the mighty oak tree, planted on the solid ROCK CHRIST .

    Pos: Hypothetically, if this was kept in the KJV it would be because of the references to Savior, Resurrection, Son of God Jesus Christ . Paul also mentions verse 45 in the NT. Def. for "palms " would be greatly appreciated. Neg: Q: Weren 't those who married the heathen destroyed by God? Why is it in here that they live? They are under the Law of Moses.
  • Son of man for verse 43
    Hello children of the one true living God, please ask the Lord Jesus Christ to let the Holy Spirit guide you.
  • Josh
    This chapter is full of great meaning and testimony of Jesus Christ First in verse 34 Esdras declares look for your Shepherd then even more directly I testify my Saviour openly And then I am amazed and impressed at the end of the chapter as it gives us a guide to obtain eternal life and also talks about the resurrection putting off the mortal clothing and putting on the inmortal Then he says in first 47 It is the Son of God whom they have confessed in the world The testimony and meaning here is clear and one that we can apply in our lives
