|1||24 pigeons a year?||Lev 15:29||loavesnfish||232448|
|Leviticus 15:29-30 mentions offering two young pigeons for an offering after a period of uncleanness. Was this just for extended periods like childbirth and disease not related to menstruation, or did it also apply to regular menstruation? In other words, did healthy women offer pigeons monthly when they were not pregnant? If they did, did someone raise pigeons just for this purpose?|
|2||Leviticus 15 bodily discharges disease?||Lev 15:1||loavesnfish||232450|
|Leviticus 15 deals with uncleanness for bodily discharges of various kinds and specifies a sin-offering and a burnt offering for them. Do these discharges include only products of disease processes like diarrhea, blood and pus? I noticed that seminal discharges don't require offerings although the men who have them are to wash and be unclean until evening. Is that because no disease is involved? Is a woman's monthly blood considered a kind of disease? or just susceptible of it?
|3||Did it start as a legal brief?||Luke||loavesnfish||232399|
|Both Luke's gospel and Acts begin with him addressing a "most excellent Theophilus." Did Luke's writing begin as some sort of legal brief or presentation of a defense for a judge?|
|4||Seething a kid in its mother's milk?||Deut 14:21||loavesnfish||232377|
|"Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk," is a command which appears three times: Exodus 23:19 and 34:26 after a discussion of firstfruits; and Deuteronomy 14:21 after an instruction on not eating what dies on its own. The first two instances seem to be tied to offering firstfruits and the third to personal holiness. Would you explain why this was a forbidden practice? When I first read these verses, it seemed to me to be a matter of violating God's lovingkindness. Then I heard from someone else that the nations around them used to have a fertility rite involving this practice and G-d did not want His people to follow it because of His desire for their separation to Him. Are either of these ideas on the right track, or is it something else?|
|5||Salting ourselves?||Bible general Archive 4||loavesnfish||232374|
|Colossians 4:6 says that our speech should be seasoned with salt and Mark 9:50 commands the hearers to have salt in themselves.
1. Does this come from the idea of salting the sacrifices (Lev. 2:13) and our bodies being living sacrifices (Rom. 12:1)?
|6||Numbers in the genealogy?||1 Sam 28:8||loavesnfish||232366|
|in Matthew 1:17, he mentions three fourteens (sum of 42). What is significant about these numbers biblically speaking (i.e. without gematria)?|
|7||Guilty by association?||1 Sam 28:8||loavesnfish||232365|
|In 1 Samuel 28 Saul, king of Israel, visits the medium at Endor who had escaped his previous order to destroy all the mediums. Leviticus 20:6,27 and Deuteronomy 18:10-12 dictated that mediums and those who used them should be put to death. 1 Sam. 28:8 mentions the two men who went with Saul. Were they also guilty for going along? Should they have refused to obey? Or should they have reported Saul and stoned him? How could they have obeyed God in this situation?|
|8||Why does she feed Saul?||1 Sam 28:21||loavesnfish||232364|
|In 1 Samuel 28:21-25 the medium insists on feeding Saul and Saul's servants agree with her. Why does she do this? Does the Bible ever tell what happened to her?|
|9||One became ten?||1 Kin 7:49||loavesnfish||232363|
|Exodus 25:23-40 and Exodus 37:10-24
1 Kings 7:49 and 2 Chronicles 4:7-8
Why did one lampstand and one table in the wilderness tabernacle become ten lampstands and ten tables in Solomon's Temple?
|10||Jezebel's relatives?||Matt 1:7||loavesnfish||232362|
|In 1 Chronicles 3:10-16 there are some kings mentioned who are not listed in Matthew 1:7-11. Did Matthew leave them out because they were related to Ahab of Israel and Jezebel?|
|11||Why did Matthew leave out names?||Matt 1:7||loavesnfish||232357|
|In Chronicles 3:10-16 there are some kings listed who are left out in Matthew 1:7-11. Did Matthew leave them out because they were unrepentant?|
|12||Thorns and thistles?||Gen 3:18||loavesnfish||232335|
|I have heard some people say that these plants were not created until the ground was cursed, but it seems more like they just began to thrive after the ground was cursed. So, which is it?|
|13||Noah's flood ended curse on the land?||Gen 5:29||loavesnfish||232334|
|Genesis 5:29 says that people expected that Noah was to bring relief from the curse God had put on the land in Genesis 3:17-19. In Genesis 8:21 God says that He will not curse the earth again after the flood. Is the curse over?|
|14||How does it make them ashamed?||Ezek 43:10||loavesnfish||232289|
|In Ezekiel 43:10-11 the vision of this temple is meant to make the house of Israel ashamed of their iniquities and willing to obey God in the future. How does measuring its pattern do that? I am confused.|
|15||End of the curse?||Gen 8:21||loavesnfish||232288|
| 1. This appears to be the end of the curse of Genesis 3:17-19. Is it?
2. Some people still teach that human work was and still is cursed rather than just the soil. Is that an error?
3. When "God says to Himself," is that meant to be a sort of heavenly stage whisper for Noah to overhear like Genesis 18:17-19 where He talks to the angels in front of Abraham?
|16||God's plan of protection?||1 Tim 2:13||loavesnfish||232264|
|1 Timothy 2:13-15 seems to be emphasizing doing things according to God's plan for protecting people from Satanic attack, so how did it get to be a male-female thing? Isn't the context one of quelling disruptions by reforming behavior?|
|17||1 Timothy 2:8-11 for disruptors?||1 Tim 2:8||loavesnfish||232263|
|1 Timothy 2:8-11 says that men should pray in a certain way and LIKEWISE women should adorn themselves in a certain way. Both of these sound like ways to control disruptive behaviors and institute a more Jewish style of worship for gentiles who didn't know how to pray or learn in the Jewish way as Timothy and Paul did. Is it correct to say that men were disputing instead of praying and women were busybodies instead of minding their own business?
|18||"Flaming sword" or 'blazing drought'?||Gen 3:24||loavesnfish||232262|
|Why is this translated "flaming sword" rather than 'blazing drought'? Since the point of Eden seems to be that it was well-watered and therefore everything grew there, and the punishment was to have to make a living cultivating cursed soil, isn't this a way of providing drought wherever Adam went so that he couldn't escape his punishment or find his own way out of it without God? Also, if he was looking for the path to the tree of life, what better way to hide it than to make the whole ground look like the path so that it disappeared?|
|19||Shame on Ham?||Lev 20:11||loavesnfish||232265|
|Genesis 9:20-27 Is Ham guilty of dishonoring his father? Is that why Noah shames him by making Canaan a servant to Ham's brothers?|
|20||Was Samuel a priest?or just a prophet?||1 Samuel||loavesnfish||232348|
|I Samuel 2:18 says Samuel "was ministering before the LORD, as a boy wearing a linen ephod." What does this mean? What was he actually doing?
I Samuel 3:1 says, "the boy Samuel was ministering to the LORD before Eli." Was he doing the same as in I Samuel 2:18? If not, what was he doing?
Since his father was from Ephraim, didn't that prevent him from being a priest? Or was he a special case due to Hannah's vow?
