Discussion for Luke 12:51

  • Jimmy Ray Seiber for verse 51
    very good scripture gods word convicts the heart the believer has forgiveness and loves god the word was and is god the holy spirit is our comforter as children of god we want to please god that is what seperates believers from unbelievers farther,son,holyspirit is all one
  • The question is what does division mean in its general context? What I have just finished doing is researching the Hebrew versus Greek definitions of division! Through studying I will conclude in saying that we are not getting it because we are interpreting the Greek content when I believe we use the Hebrew definition it means distribution. Deliverance redeems after reviewing these meaning. One would say Deliverer and redeemer of the masses? To separate the few believers from those who are unbelievers.
