Discussion for Acts 5:30

  • The cross was the tree. It was made of wood he was hung from it but not in a noose he was nailed to it and hung from the nails.
  • Dave King for verse 30
    I suggest: Jesus was hung upon a tree, as the Old Testament of our Lord declared, and it was the Tree of Life, manifested out of wood, declaring our vertical horizon relationships with His church family and of His life in the world, brought together at the Cross through the sacrifice of Jesus in our place, though we are undeserving. And from this fruit, our Father made good His promise from ill, Genesis 50:20 , and the Son was resurrected returned to the Father, thus enabling the Holy Spirit to pour out Life, from seed to seed, redemption restoration, everlasting.
  • My DAD HAD A PICTURE OF A TREE AND HE TOLD ME YEARS AGO THAT JESUS DIED ON A TREE. BUT I JUST COULD NIT COMPREHEND.
  • I think it was a tree everything jesus talk about he talk about tree and peter said they hung on tree he was watching
  • Theres a bigger issue, I think. People wear the cross around their necks. Its a symbol, and a reminder of death. Some people kiss it during a certain event, and mumble a few thoughts. Some re religions and cults kiss the head of a snake, or bull. The cross to many people is supposed to represent some form of Jesus and his death. The Vatican has pushes the cross scene for over a thousand years (Popes), Their reason is not biblical, just old pagan. The cross is a false idol, no question. We have no idea of the items of archaeology they have been buying from finders of artifacts related to the era of Jesus, through the back door unfortunately. They can mot risk showing them to the public at this time. It would probably destroy the roman catholic religion. But, Jesus will take care of that issue when he returns in the clouds (not as a human). Unfortunately I probably wont be their to see him!
  • Cornelius for verse 30
    It can be said that it was a tree cos the wood of the cross was from tree
