    V. 24 - " ... and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a 'brother'." I highlighted brother because - it just occurred to me brother could also very well mean brother in the church; not just blood brother.
  • Irene123
    'Jesus' is all through the O.T. The whole of the O.T. is all about Jesus. Luke 24:44, Jn. 20:28 - Thomas was a DEVOUT Jew. NO Jew will call anyone 'Lord' and 'God' except He is that. Deut.6:4 - Hear O Israel, the Lord your God is one Lord," (Shema). Nor did Jesus, being a DEVOUT Jew, rebuke Thomas. The name Jehovah translates to Jesus.

    "Jehovah's" name is a source of protection. That's why it's critical to know this name. Yet Sadly, even with the KJ that name is obscured by TITLES such as LORD. It's capitalized and italicized so we know that the translator understood the omission of the Divine Name.
  • JWM
    Pro_18:10 Yahweh‚name is a strong tower: the righteous run to him, and are safe. Nothing here about "Jesus."
  • Brianna
    Vs. 1 Whoever isolates himself pursues his own selfish desires; He rejects all practical wisdom.

    Jehovah God made us to be gregarious people. It is not good for us to isolate ourselves or think we can do everything on our own. God has made a congregation to help us and provide comfort as well as himself. Let us always fellowship with God and our brothers at our christian meetings.
