    What color was jesus skin
  • Bob Hilt for verse 5
    Revelation 1:14 - His (Jesus) HEAD head and his hairs were WHITE white like wool, as WHITE white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass,

    (Brass is made of copper which is REDDISH GOLDEN BROWN) as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

    ....eyes were as a flame of fire; (ever see a flame of a gas stove? the flame is blue oftentimes)
  • Stanjett for verse 5
    Does it really matter? Jesus was born a Jew, so more than likely He had a olive skin tone.
  • Josephj for verse 1
    how can i develop the consciousness of the presence of the Holy Spirit and how do i cultivate intense fellowship with Him
  • Chris for verse 1
    Joseph, if I could add to those excellent advice given by Hogan, on spending time with the Lord in prayer & in His Word.

    As we walk out into a new day armed with the Word & the richness of a prayer time with your Father, we must seek out opportunities that will allow the Spirit of God to move amongst others. We know that the Holy Spirit moves over many hearts to "reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement" (John 16:8), but He mostly works through us who have experienced forgiveness of sins & have a new hope & new life.

    So whether you're at work, doing some shopping, meeting someone on the street, or even offering help to an elderly/infirm/needy person, ask the Spirit of God to use you to show forth the Love & Grace of God & to share the Word of God that you've been studying, to others. As you serve Him, even in a small way, you will know in your heart, by the witness of the Spirit, that the ministry you've just done was only because of Him being in you & working through you, for GOD'S GLORY only. Now, if that isn't a great confirmation of the indwelling Holy Spirit - and you will increase in your faith & can expect greater things from God.
  • Hogan for verse 1
    Spending time in the Word of God is spending time with Christ. He is the Word (see John 1:1). For me, I experience his presence which leads to prayer. I gather scriptures that I desire to pray to him about because I know he honors his Word and I know that I'm praying his will. I recommend reading the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Afterwards Read Acts chapter 1 and 2. Do this every day, devote quite time with him, listen for him. In this reading you will come to know about Jesus Christ, his passion, his heart, and feel his love. Get ready to enjoy reading the Word of God, enjoying his presence and experiencing intimacy with him. You're on the right path of desiring an intense relationship with him for the Word promises if you seek him, you will find him! God bless you and I'm so happy for you. His Love is wonderful, Christ is wonderful and his presence and spirit is amazing! He is the best thing that has ever happened to me. He gives me confidence, love, peace, strength, joy, comfort, hope and security. He has changed my life and has changed me. I will never be the same and don't want to be. If I can share a song with you it would be this: He's sweet I know, oh He's sweet I know. Storm clouds may rise, strong winds may blow. I'll tell the world, wherever I go. That I've found a savior and he's sweet I know.
  • LINDA CAN for verse 1
    In my early walk with the Holy Spirit I found Him to be faithful. It was when I stop reading my Bible and stop spending time with Him. This is what I found out, it was me. I stopped calling on Jesus and seeking His presence. James 5"Draw nigh to me an I will draw near to you."nkjv Jeremiah also speaks on this chpt. 29:12-4. When I did the presence of God became so wonderful again.
  • Mishael for verse 1
    You're right. What do creation studies have to do with people being born again and following Jesus.

    Millions of people may be dying without Jesus as their Saviour.

    Be blessed.
  • Marie pilgrim for verse 1
    Can Someone Please Comment,Explain 2 Esdras 16:69 ? Bless you Really Perilous Times were in..
  • Dolly ANDERSON for verse 1
    In my King James Version Bible, the Book of Solomon is found. In my new Southern Baptist Sunday School book, it is called Song of Songs. When did this happen?? Never heard it called Song of Songs!! I don't like anything changed when it come to GOD'S WORD!!!
  • Jesse for verse 1
    If I remember correctly, it was originally titled Song of Songs, not Song of Solomon. Either way, it's still the same book, nothing changed. There are also other books in the bible that the titles have been changed from the original. The book of Acts was originally known as Luke Part II. I think there may have been one or two more, but I would have to research it.
  • Bud c for verse 5
    If you choose to drink a glass of wine with spaghetti that's your God given free choice . You are free from the laws and customs of man . Christ is not sitting waiting to punish you over a glass or two of wine nor a can or two of beer . Now if you are around someone whom it may offend then don't drink it . Do not indulge yourselves to being high or drunk for the body's sake to put it to harm . Live your life free before God and trust him to tell you what's wrong and not another mans opinions and his teaching .
  • Love poem and song to a special lover. It's good within the context of marriage the way God intended.
  • SIR KAY for verse 3
    Wine is not for kings. i mean alchohol as it alters your setting and sponsors behavior that inconsistent with your true personality. Jesus wouldn't have turn water to alchohol thus making people drunk and misbave on the account of his miracle wine. No! Its not possible, Jesus Turned water to WINE.
  • He is considering his skin as a pride to be a black for others looking at it down and ugly
  • Sandra for verse 1
    I am of the Protestant faith and am very confused about the consumption of wine, say a glass with dinner not drunkenness? I have put this to God and asked for an answer and I always come to the same conclusion that it is not a sin, I feel no guilt at consuming a glass of celebratory wine or with dinner. Please give me your opinion.
    Thank you,
  • Ramesis2 for verse 5
    do a bible study on fementation, or rotting,, it resembles sin, anything fremented or rottem jesus would not take part in because not only he wrote the bible but he is a nazarite.. he is our example
  • Hi Sandra, that's a good question. It's my opinion that since Jesus' first miracle was turning water to alcoholic wine then it must not be a sin in itself. What is says is a sin is drunkenness and giving into the many temptations that alcohol will enable through inhibiting our judgment, conscience, and holy spirit. Link and Link
  • Rowland Tedder for verse 1
    The Bible tells us in Proverbs 20:1 - Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

    No where in the Bible state Jesus turned water into an alcoholic drink and the grapes were fermented. He simple stated he turned water into wine. His word, the Bible, talks against alcohol in several places when you read it in its entirety. He will not contradict himself. Jesus is the word (John 1:1). Galatians chapter 5 also explains to us what is sin. Ask yourself, how would it effect your witness to the world. Would they take you serious seeing you drinking alcohol and trying to lead them to Jesus Praying earnestly and not self willed, God will reveal thetruth
  • Gods child for verse 1
    getting drunk is the Sin
  • Adam
    Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived.
  • Antonio Robinson for verse 5
    Psalms 61 David says,

    Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to you,
    When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
    For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
    I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.

    Verse 8 So I will sing praise to your name forever, That I may daily perform my vows. AMEN Thank You Lord
  • Mickey for verse 5
    2 Corinthians 11:14
    Beware of sparkly robes of gold: even satan can disguise himself as an angel of light. Compare everything to scripture.
    Jesus said "it is written...and quoted scripture to satans temptations
  • From the previous verse it seems that the Beloved really does not find herself attractive from a physical standpoint, which is sad even in current times. She sacrificed her appearance for the sake of her mother's children. She seems to think that her Lover is pedestals above her in terms of attractiveness. Honestly, I've become invested with the intricacies of the language and the characters that I hope she finds to love herself just as much, if not more, than she loves her Lover.
  • Annysia for verse 5
    From this verse, I believe she is describing herself. She's saying that she has dark skin, which is considered "ugly" from the tone which she says it, but her personality is comely. The tents are curtains are referring to her skin, but I believe in a way she still finds those objects beautiful that's why she uses them to refer to herself.

    It could be interpreted as racist, but I believe she's just saying how she doesn't conform to the beauty standards of her time but still appreciates what she has inside.
  • I remember reading this a few years back and being shocked by how the Bible explicitly says the sexual nature of the relationship between Lover and Beloved (being lead into the King's chambers). Despite that, I love the poetic nature of this and how the song describes how much they love each other and consummate their marriage.
  • Annysia for verse 3
    The language used in this verse is particularly beautiful but I'm a bit confuse by it. My interpretation of this is the Lover's presence is so intoxicating to the Beloved that just hearing the name brings her joy. What confuses me though is the use of the word "virgins", is she simply referring to herself or do many people adore the Lover just like her?
  • Hogan
    This is a beautiful testimony and prophecy of Christ's love for his people. "Virgins" are considered (the church) or people in Christ. See Matthew 25:1-13. Verse 2 and 3 proclaims Christ's love and having a relationship with Christ is health and healing to us wholly and is better than wine! Verse 4 is expressed being drawn nearer to Christ, through His "love invitation" and acceptance.Those who receives his invitation and love will run after him and will be glad and rejoice in him, and will remember his love more than wine: the upright love him.
  • Luna Vincent for verse 2
    I've been researching on this quote and it's pretty interesting how open to interpretation the Song of Solomon is in general (is it from God to Man, Christ to the Church, etc.). What confuses me though is why the King James version decided to make the tone of this verse so calm? Other versions of the bible seem to have a lot of energy in their translations of this verse.
  • Alex
    The 2 lovers in song are christ and th church but they refer to each other as having doves eyes,husbands love your wives as christ loved the church n gave his life for it.moses commanded them to offer up 2 turtle doves for a leprosy wash them by running water his baptism then 1 had to be killed and his blood sprinkled on the living bird th church then the livin bird was set free thats us sinners
