    In my previous comment, to uncover your Father's nakedness, means to sleep with your Father's wife. Strong concordance, the Hebrew meaning. The Apocryphal and Masaratic Text, were removed from the original 1611 King James.
  • Gloria Brewer on Matthew 11:17
    Go to your Strongs Concordance; the Hebrew meaning of (to under your Father's nakedness) meaning is to sleep with his wife! Brother's and Sister's, please study for yourselves. We are on the precipice for the return of our King! Study to show yourselves approved. I pray this helps, because THAT is what caused Noah's wrath.

    Blessings to you all in our Lord Jesus Christ. In great love, I pray He opens up all of eyes.

    The scripture at the end of Hebrews 6 and continuing into chapter seven is referencing the account in Genesis 14 where Melchisedec appears (with no reference to his origin) to bless Abraham. Melchisedec is a pattern for Christ's priesthood because he didn't come out of the tribe of Levi. The scripture says he is the priest of Salem. Salem eventually became know as Jerusalem. So Melchisedec is a good pattern for Christ being the High Priest of the heavenly Jerusalem (end of Hebrews 12). Take time to ponder Hebrews 7 and the comparisons that are made in it.

    Hi Bill. Maybe you've picked up on this information from a source not readily available to us. What we do know is that there were many writings, both what are considered apocryphal books & other little known, possibly spurious, writings. These were generally single productions on parchment or on other material & have been lost to us. Only the apocryphal books have survived and been retained & sometimes incorporated into the Canon of Scripture.

    So if you know of 777 books of the Bible, then you may need to cite your source, as the Bible wasn't even anything like what we have today in one binding. It never had as many books as you suggest and as mentioned, most of the writings that were known through those earliest days, have since been lost or disintegrated over time.

    The 66 Books we have now in the Bible was first put together by Jerome around AD 400 written in Latin, & often referred to as the Vulgate. The selection of the NT Books (to the exclusion of the apocryphal books) was based generally on the following: was it written by a disciple or one (e.g. Luke) who learned the accounts from a witness of Jesus' Life & Ministry; they had to be written within the 1st Century; and the selected Books could not contradict any other book, to maintain a faithful account of events. Even disregarding the OT Apocrypha, the NT Apocrypha (e.g. Gospels of Thomas, Barnabas, Mary, etc.) have been found to contain erroneous material, & was omitted when the Canon of Scripture was formed. So what we have now in our hands, we believe is what God has determined for us to read & learn from. There may be truths found in other writings, but to avoid entertaining accounts that may be erroneous, it is best to rely on the strict rules of canonization, under the Will of God for us.

    Before the real Bible was changed, there was 777 Books of the Bible. Why is there now only 66 Books in the Bible? Is there 777 Books in the original Bible?

    I believe The HOLY Spirit revealed this to me: it was Jesus that suffered violence & was taken force. Matthew 11:12, Matthew 10:5-8,

    Hebrews 13:12, Acts 17:3,

    Matthew 26:53-68, Matthew 27:1-54,

    Psalms 22,

    Ludie Smith Mathew 11 verse 12 Before John the baptist there is a 4-500 year gap where there was

    no men of God taking a stand. The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence or is always under attack, the

    adversary Is always accusing Gods people who take stand on His Word.

    The enemies primary purpose is to eventually shut up or stop Gods

    Word from being held forth, which is why he thought eliminating Jesus Christ was all he had to do.

    verse 12, can you elaborate
  • T. Levis - in Reply on Matthew 11

    The HOLY SPIRIT revealed to me, one day after sometime pondering, that it was: Jesus

    That was the Kingdom representation on earth, that suffered violence

    & the Violent took Him by force, was it also Prophetic to what was about to happen to Him? & other people that belong to the Kingdom of Heaven? Also the Prophets that suffered violence previously.

    My question is Why do people continue to try to and do things in there own strength?When they know that GOD is Not A Man !
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 11:30
    I agree with you, that just by the reading of that portion of Scripture, one could wonder what angered Noah. However, for Noah to have become angry there must be more to the story that we're not given.

    We only know that Ham walked by Noah's opened tent 'door' & saw his father in that state of drunkenness & nakedness. He then recounted what he saw, to his brothers, who then went & covered up their father without looking at him. No doubt Noah would have then enquired about this other covering on him & maybe woke up because of the commotion going on. He might have learned the details of Ham's 'more than a casual glance' at him & therefore was angered by his son's behaviour. Of course, nothing is said of Noah's bad behaviour by imbibing too much & displaying himself after being overly warmed by the wine. But I guess the rest of the story is to show why Ham was cursed for this act & the fallout for his descendants.

    I fully agree David. But whose DNA do you think Jesus would have had? A completely new, specific to a new creation-type of DNA, or from Mary? I'm thinking: was Jesus' DNA comparable to Adam's DNA in that completely new creation of God? Or, if Jesus had DNA or genetic markers from Mary, how then does the sin nature through her bear upon Him? These maybe rhetorical questions, as can one give conclusive answers?
  • David - in Reply on Matthew 11:30
    He was physically human, having physical human DNA, Jesus wouldn't have been able to be killed if He wasn't flesh and blood. After His resurrection His body was indestructible, one resembling the son of man. His nature, all His thought and actions however were always the Spirit of His Father. John the Baptist said God gave Him the Spirit without measure.

    Hi Ronald. According to Matthew 13:55,56, "Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?"

    Since Jesus' birth as the Son of God wasn't the result of the procreation of Joseph & Mary but of Divine Seed, His birth had to be exceptional, both in terms of his dual Being as Human & Divine, but also in His relationship to His 'parents & siblings'. His four brothers & sisters (not told their number), could only ever be Jesus' 'half' brothers/sisters as they came into the world from the union of their parents, unlike Jesus coming from God, His Father, the Producer of that Holy Seed.

    The questions then arise: did Jesus also have similar DNA (or, even genetic markers) as the other siblings or His Mother, or did Jesus' physical appearance have similarities to the others? Depending on where your understanding on this is (i.e. if Jesus' birth was wholly Divine with Mary only contributing to His human nurture, sustenance & delivery of the Babe from the womb; or, if Jesus' birth was half Divine & half human thereby giving Him both Sonship to God & man), you might have your answer. My belief is that Jesus' was wholly Divine for the simple reason that if He wasn't, then the sin nature (of Mary) would have been passed onto Him: & I don't understand that from Scripture. Others, might understand this differently.

    To become as a child means innocent-without judgment-to perceive with open eyes. To observe without preconception...
  • Rose on Matthew 11:30
    I don't get the naked story (Gen9)-why was Noah so angry??
  • Ronald on Matthew 11:30
    Chris, took a bible trivia quiz on this site and it asked the question , how many half brothers did Jesus have . the answer was 4. I was very surprised by this answer. I myself have 2 half sisters. one we share the same father and the other the same mother. Can you or anyone give me some insight into this ? confused!

    There are no actual photos of earth from space in it's entirety. They are all composite photos pieced together from several photos, or are simply drawings and animation. This is fully explained by NASA representatives. "But its round, it has to be."

    Is the direct quote from the guy who does it for a living. Many photos in NASA's vast library are complete composites. Many are not real. You can do this by running the images through a digital filter.
  • Erin on Matthew 11:30
    Tremaine, I am in tears reading your words, for I too am about to be in your situation, I turned to this verse in my Bible today and I thought I understood the meaning but I wanted to make sure so I came here for a more clear understanding, I almost did not read your comment but something said to stop and read, and boy am I glad that I did, God is trying to prepare me for the things to come, I need to lean on God as the man in my house and trust His will, I often get sidetracked by thoughts that my sins have caused my life to be harder so I deserve what comes my way, however, even if that is true it does not matter, God is a God of mercy and forgiveness and my past does not jade me to God's grace, because grace is not earned, he said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."

    I believe these verses are a parable aimed at the many un-believers, likely the Pharisees & Sadducees, - aka " ... this generation" who were acting like children who sometimes get huffy and say something like "I'm not going to play with you anymore".

    The worst part is, many of these Pharisees & Sadducees never did believe - unlike children who usually change their attitude and soon return to their playmates.
