|1||is John, Jonah in different languages||John||Rolff||242938|
|In John 1:42 the KJV says,"Simon the son of Jona". Lots of Johns in John 1. Book, John the beloved, John the Baptizer and Rocky's dad. In the Greek, it is clearly John as the NAS translates. Question: is the Greek John-Jonah in Hebrew as the KJV hints?|
|2||moses, hebrew or egypian etymology||Bible general||Rolff||242935|
|Moses' gene pool is understood. Most of the main Hebrew characters in Daniel had both Chaldean and Hebrew names. Is Moses a Hebrew or Egyptian name, i.e. is this the name pharaoh or his parents gave him? Is Gershom a Hebrew or Egyptian name, since his father was Hebrew but his mother was Egyptian. I could not find this info in ISBE or any of my other commentaries. Really appreciate being able to ask my unique questions in this forum.|

|9||Jehovah's name||Bible general||Rolff||241379|
|I was singing in church today and began to wonder if Jehovah (KJV) and Yahweh in the song was equal to the YHWH of the Hebrew language. Is this a made up word because God is too holy to use his name, or is this God's name in the text of Scripture?

|11||ADULTRY VS BIGAMY #3||Ex 21:10||Rolff||221917|
|Tim, What you say is correct. My non-legal mind can't see a difference between adultry and bigamy, two women, one man in both cases. The US has made rules against second wives based on Matthew 5 and 19. Yet, Moses (who was married to two women wrote these rules.) One is legal with rules, one is a sin, just verses apart.
I am reading a Legalist's dissertation and he is railing on adultry, page after page. His paper is on law and grace and I am bored beyond tears. What about bigamy? If I have a one night fling, it is Adultry. If I marry two women and do both of them every night, it is ok? As a man of the Word, this seems convoluted, but may be so. Any comments from a different point of view?
[One wife is almost too much. Can't imagine two bedded women under my roof. The question above is a long standing question between my brother and I. ]
|12||Why is bigamy ok but adultry isn't?||Ex 21:10||Rolff||221909|
|The seventh commandment in Exodus 20, tells us not to commit adultry. Clear as can be. But a chapter later in Exodus 22-23 we are given rules for a second wife. Two wives (bigamy) appear to not be sin in the Pentateuch but adultry is sin.
What is the difference? they both have two different women in your bedroom. This is an honest question that is gnawing at me.
|13||John the Baptist and Jesus cousins?||Luke 1:13||Rolff||212325|
|Were John the Baptist and Jesus cousins? I have always been taught this but can't find it in Matthew or Luke's gospels.|
|14||Difference between Psalm and song||Psalm||Rolff||211943|

|16||SECOND FABLE IN THE BIBLE||Judg 9:7||Rolff||206899|
|In Judges 9:7-16 Jotham tells a fable to Abimelech. Are there any other fables or myths like Jotham's in Scripture? Seems like I heard there were two but I can't come up with any others.
