    how do i study the bible
  • Mishael - in Reply on Luke 1:25
    It was easier for me to start in the Gospels and get some solid knowledge on

    who Jesus is

    Who his family is

    His boyhood, brothers and sister

    The start and course of his Ministry, age 30.

    Calling his 12 Disciples

    What He preached

    How he preached to Pharisees down to the

    common people; Romans.

    He never sinned even once, in his life

    Keep going till you finish up in Revelation.

    Some people like to debate on Genesis because, mostly they read it too fast. Avoid that for now. :)

    Proverbs is full of wisdom

    Psalms teaches How to pray and praise.

    A firm foundation on Jesus makes the rest of the Bible easier to learn. From Genesis to Revelation the Bible is about Jesus Christ.

    The Priests office and the person in that office. How is it that Zacharias, in the midst of his ministry has failed to believe the angel sent from God? Zacharias prayer was that he would have a son, most probably to take his place in serving the people in the temple. Angels, normally do not identify themselves as messengers of God. He see's this angel and is troubled and in fear. Imagine! this is not an ordinary angel! this is Gabriel! Here (stands) Gods mighty messenger, and says to Zacharias "I AM Gabriel!" He is standing, standing, before this man, in the midst of the very temple that God met Zacharias in daily worship, in every sermon , every prayer, every commandment, every sacrament , all his duties as a servant of God, are coming to physical light! Gabriel, while standing, wastes no time. He says, Zacharias, your prayers are heard, you will have a son, and you will call him John! As a priest we would never expect him to question these things, we would expect him to fall on his knees in thanksgiving! Instead he has made a dreadful mistake, and questions Gabriel! The priesthood requires more than fulfilling duties , it requires a faithful and ready heart. God dealt with Zacharias. He made him dumb. Despite Zacharias unfaithfulness, John the forerunner of Christ was born! Saying "prepare ye the way of the Lord, make your paths strait!" Our new high priest, the Christ is come! Peter says: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." We are become the priesthood, who serve the Christ the son of God. His temple is within you, His holy spirit, His word, the messenger, like Gabriel!

    What determines when the spiritual realm and the physical meet! The holy spirit moved upon the face of the deep ,during creation. The Holy spirit overshadowed Mary, also the holy spirit also filled Elizabeth as the child leaped in her womb. Also when the holy spirit abode on Christ and abode on him after his baptism. And "without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory".We describe the holy spirit as a person in the trinity, and with this "WORD", seeing is believing, The holy spirit can and will present itself whenever needed, According to the spirit found in Christ we are able to see the spiritual, physically working in the kingdom of God. This is what the word means being "in the Spirit of God". If you are in the spirit ,then and only will you be able to see the holy spirit. This is when the physical meets the spiritual.

    What role did Joseph play in the birth of Jesus? Did Joseph have children before he met Mary?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Luke 1
    No. he had no kids until after Jesus was born. Then he and Mary had more kids.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Luke 1
    Joseph was married to Mary but had NOTHING to do with the birth of Jesus. Joseph and Mary had no sex until after Jesus was born. God was Jesus's Father. The Holy Spirit of God inpegnated Mary. A virgin shall be with child.

  • John L QUESTION on Luke 1

    God said Adam would die "in that day" Genesis 2:17 that he partook of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but he lived until 930 years old.

    God said that the flood of Noah's time would destroy "every living substance" (Genesis 7:4, Genesis 7:23) from the face of the earth," yet the dove sent by Noah plucked an olive leaf from an olive tree after the flood. A tree is a living substance.

    If these phrases are taken at face value, would there not be a discrepancy in the Word of God?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Luke 1
    If you would read an entire chapter from start to end, you would have your answers!

    Adam and Eve died SPIRITUALLY, not physically. They were banished from Eden, but still alive. Read through to the genealogies.

    Same thing with Noah:

    7 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.

    8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see IF THE WATERS were abated from off the face of the ground;

    9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.

    10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;

    11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were ABATED from off the earth.

    Jesus was coming through Noah's bloodline/ genealogy.

    John seems you are ignorant (not knowing something) so please allow me to show you something

    2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

    Yes Adam lived 900+ years human wise and died in one day in the eyes of the Lord, since a day to the Lord is as

    1,000 years.

    There is no discrepancy with the Bible that I have found.
  • Adam - in Reply on Luke 1
    Hi John,

    Happy to offer my opinion.

    1. Genesis 2:17. Adam did die. Death and aging didn't happen before that. So, Adam was instantly separated from God spiritually (spiritual death), and began a slow process of physical death from that point on via aging. And if God killed him instantly, you'd probably have people criticizing that too and making negative claims and assumptions about that, so he allowed Adam (and people in general) to have a long life.

    "for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." - sounds like you're interpreting this as thou shalt surely die 'that day', but it doesn't say that. It says in 'the day' that he eats it ... this will happen (death), but it didn't say how soon the death part would occur. It seems to mean spiritual death + death through aging.

    2. Genesis 7:4 - "every living substance". The Bible already explained this. Just like in writing class you often write a general thesis at the beginning then later explain more specifically what it means this is what's done here. It doesn't mean it's inaccurate. Simply keep reading. Genesis 7:21-23 it specifically says "And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:"

    22 says each with nostrils, 23 gives examples which are land animals. It says substance, but appears to mean animals.

    The other possibility is that the olive tree was dead and came back to live when the waters receded, but I don't think so, because it would have explained that when it was specific in verses 21-23.

    Tender Mercies?

    God has shown mercy to sinners by the gift of His Son Jesus the Christ and who was obedient to His Father's will to the point of death and that whoever believes in God's gift being that His Son paid for all the believers sins will receive God's tender mercy. See mankind is now born with sin and then he commits sins of willfulness and sins of ignorance. Without remission of sin God must judge mankind because God is Holy and Justified. He's is God....We are not. But by His mercy which is obviously tender He made a way out of the death penalty for us by offering His Son as a replacement for us and all of the worlds sins were poured out on Him when He hung on the tree. If that isn't mercy for us I don't know what is? God so loved me that He gave His only Son for me a lost sinner and now I can hold my head high knowing that His Kingdom will come and I will be remembered and have a life without the decay that holds me now. He is tender and merciful in His ways that I can't understand but if I read His Word I will know the path.

    Believe and you will be saved. That is tender mercy.

  • Chris - in Reply on Luke 1
    Thanks Dean, for a great testimony & account of the Lord's immeasurable mercies afforded us undeserving souls. Our heads can only be held high in praise based on all that He has done for us & nothing from ourselves. It's ALL of Grace.
  • Scott on Luke 1
    I have been a Christian for many years but not lived as I should, I am now in my fifties and recent health issues have compelled me to study the bible. I picked the first chapter of Luke out of thin air-not even knowing the content. Looking forward to getting closer to my savior JESUS CHRIST!
  • Tony Colliluori - in Reply on Luke 1
    TO: Scott - Good on ya brother! May the Holy Ghost grant you the wisdom and knowledge that you seek!
  • Obbie Beal on Luke 1
    20 and, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.

    Note: according to the above, Time arrived for both John and JESUS to enter the world, thereby ..., ...., ..., plus 77-79 SALVATION for all mankind is about to reach all mankind..
  • CAROL on Luke 1:29
    What does it mean to constantly see letter S?
  • Mike on Luke 1
    what are the tender mercerys of god
  • Job - in Reply on Luke 1
    To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
    The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
    That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
    In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
  • Jesus Christ was Born in December on Luke 1
    Jesus could have only been Born in December which is Confirmed in Scripture. There are Unproven Theories claiming Jesus wasn't Born than and that as Christians we shouldnt Celebrate Christmas at this time and the same with Easter but when examined in the Light of Scripture by the Empowering of The Holy Spirit they have no substance or Truth and are mostly hearsay and fiction, they come from Man s own fleshy logic, understanding and reasoning. God tells us we are not to Agree with or Support those who Teach contrary to His Revealed Truth and we will know when it is by The Empowering of The Holy Spirit as we read the Scriptures. I will share some soon that confirm Jesus was Born in December.

    Praise God , His word is true and His promises are everlasting
  • Beloved on Luke 1
    It's so amazing what he did for us and still fights for us. Very thankful . He deserves so much praise and worship and love. Thank God for sending blessing and precious gift to die on the cross for our sins. Words cannot explain the gratitude I feel for all he's done for me and my family. Thankful for his love. The blood still cleanses from sin and changes you. Miracles signs, wonders.

    Bless our holy god!!
  • Gary Olsen on Luke 1
    Luke 1:13 Why did the angel sent by God to Zacharias tell him to call his coming son's name John which means "God's gift"? Why did the same angel who was sent by God to Mary tell her to call her coming son's name Jesus which means "savior" (1:31)? These names were prophetic. They were a message to us from God that he was going to give us a gift of our salvation through Jesus our Lord and savior.
