|1||Should a woman pursue a man?||Gen 39:7||BibleVerse||159602|
|Excellent response Hank... personal, yet scriptural... a very wise lesson for all planning on entering marriage.|
|2||Why did God test Adam and Eve ?||Genesis||BibleVerse||153390|
|That's correct. Surely man had no reason or excuse to forget to whom he belonged, when his very life depended on his obedience to his Creator and Owner. The decision to decide right from wrong, good from bad, was God's (not man's).
Proof of this is all around us today and it's easy to relate to Jeremiah's prayer:
Jeremiah 10:23 (New Life Version)
O Lord, I know that a man's way is not known by himself. It is not in man to lead his own steps.
A true Christian submits himself to God's will and his instructions - simple as that.
|3||Paul discourages marriage?||1 Cor 7:1||BibleVerse||142337|
|The Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Bible, says: “Most, if not all the apostles had been married, as Peter certainly was.” In evidence of Peter’s marriage, this Catholic book cites two texts: Matthew 8:14 and 1 Corinthians 9:5. The first speaks of Peter’s “mother-in-law.” In the second Paul says: “Have we not . . . the right to take a Christian woman round with us, like all the other apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?”—The Catholic Jerusalem Bible.
As indicated in this Bible verse, who had wives? “The other apostles.” “The brothers of the Lord.” “Cephas.” Who was Cephas? None other than the apostle Peter, who the Catholic religion teaches was the first pope - and Paul said Peter was married.
The Roman Catholic Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Bible, referring to the Bible writings of Jesus’ apostles, says: “St. Paul makes it quite clear that no Christian is obliged to practice v. [virginity].” It adds: “Celibacy of the clergy is nowhere demanded... in the NT [New Testament].”
The Doc presents a reasonable view of 1 Cor 7:1-2.
|4||When was the Book of Job first published||Job||BibleVerse||142324|
|Moses is generally credited with writing the account of Job’s experiences. He could have known about Job when he spent 40 years in Midian and may have heard of Job’s final outcome and death when Israel was near Uz toward the end of its wilderness journey. If Moses completed the book of Job about the time of Israel’s entry into the Promised Land in 1473 B.C.E. (probably not long after Job’s death), this would place the time of Job’s trial about 1613 B.C.E., for Job lived 140 years after his trial was over.—Job 42:16, 17.|
|5||Did Jesus have brothers and/or sisters?||NT general Archive 1||BibleVerse||138024|
|Jesus has, at the very least, six younger brothers and sisters.
Mt 13:55-56 (The Ampified Bible) "Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And, are not His brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? And do not all his sisters live here among us? Where then did this Man get all this?"
So, thus far we have James, Joseph, Simon and Judas for the boy's (brother's) names.
Mark 6:3 Indicates that Jesus had at least 2 sisters, "and are not His sisters among us?".
Don't find names listed for the sisters. If I have overlooked their names, please advise... thank you.
