Discussion for Deuteronomy 4

  • Brianna vs. 15-20
    Idol worship! Vs. 15 warned the Jews, and warns us, to be very careful and watch ourselves closely. God warned about being "seduced" into idol worship. I like vs. 16 where it warns about making idols to represent any symbol. The revered cross has certainly crept into Christianity. People view it as a trinket and use it regularly in worship. Is it befitting for a Christian to have?
  • Irene123
    The O.T. name of God translates into Jesus in the Greek of the N.T., but - the Jews didn't believe in Jesus so ..................
  • Seven Trumpets
    The "Original" in Hebrew; Yode He Vav He, pronounced by many as, Yehovah; was re-written as "Adonai" or, LORD by the Jews, out of fear of pronouncing the Name of "I AM." There is a verse in Amos which I believe foretells that the Jews at one point, would forbid to say the LORD's name. Amos 6:10 "...for we may not make mention of the name of the LORD." Since then, most translations do the same.
  • Brianna
    Vs. 4 Seems almost like a contradiction with this translation. I have to agree with Nkosilathi's thought. Was capital LORD originally written or was the Divine Name "YAHWEH" OR "JEHOVAH" written?
