Discussion for Zechariah 13:6

  • People keep saying this is for the Israel. Who do you think Israel is today; where did the ten tribes go? And weren't the gentiles adopted into the tribes of Israel.
    Paul makes repeated references to adoption into the house of Israel through faith: "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his" (Rom. 8:9). And again: "Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises" (Rom. 9:4).

    Jesus said Matthew 15:24 - But he (Jesus) answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
    John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I (Jesus) know them, and they follow me:
    Galations 3: 28 - There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
    Jeremiah 3:8 - And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away,
    and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
    29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    I enjoy this because many in school for theology may say that this was only speaking about the children of Israel and the Covenant that the Father had with them .
  • Here is one for you. Why does it state in the KJV "What are these wounds in thine hands? " and in the NIV it states "What are these wounds in thing back "? I know they are talking about the false prophet and the ritual scares related to pagan practices that his friends gave him. I don t get the mix up of hands and back. Why does the KJV say hands? Big difference between the two.
