    The Reformation

    That would be an unprophesied and unstated Seder meal. How is the basis of that story any better than what the first century gnostics had to offer? That is another excluded equivocation since Jesus said He wouldn't drink of the fruit of the vine again until He does it with them in the kingdom...

    The Reformation

    It may make perfect sense to some people but is human reason a sufficient cause to deny what Scripture says? What is commonly translated into English as accomplished or finished is a Greek perfect tense, that is, it indicates a completed action. We'll take the truth tellers word, the word of...

    Ellen White: "The man Christ Jesus was not the Lord God Almighty" (SDA BIBLE Commentary, Volume 5, page 1129).

    Of course the words of Jesus' were final since God doesn't lie and knows all things. Why would someone expect to see those words in that passage? When the malefactor confessed that Jesus would enter His kingdom it was a confession of Jesus' as Lord and God. Surely you remember Jesus saying...

    What is it that leads you to overlook and then replace the immediate context of John 19:30?

    The Reformation

    Perfected. It is accomplished as in the words of Jesus on the cross in John 19:30.

    The Reformation

    Such is the life of the redeemed. :) Fwiw, the thought from the Hahn paper that I've been focusing on appears again in Hebrews 5:9, [Jesus] having been perfected...

    The Reformation

    Yes. The KJV translators were too timid or stylistically helpful with their translation of Hebrews 5:9. I prefer Luther's more literal translation of He became the cause of eternal salvation. That is the the appropriate meat between the two slices of, “Just as He also says in another place...

    Goodness, gracious, that is a tour deforce of equivocal thought and speech! :)

    The word pure in a KJVO context

    Jesus, our wisdom, was given freely and is given freely. Asking in faith is asking in Christ Jesus.

    Ellen White: "The man Christ Jesus was not the Lord God Almighty" (SDA BIBLE Commentary, Volume 5, page 1129).

    All of Christianity, East (those outside the Roman Empire) and West (those within the Roman Empire) received the teaching that Jesus, the Word, was God through the explicit witness of John in Greek and Aramaic. As an example of the Aramaic here is Murdock's translation of John 1:1, “In the...

    Trump impersonator kills a woman

    The words Trump and Impersonator are used as adjectives, they describe or identify the shooter and killer Alec Baldwin.

    The Reformation

    You have again failed to demonstrate the connection between the text and your illogical and false interpretation. The subject is Christ so the predicate is about Christ. No amount of diversionary illogical cutting and pasting of out of context passages will change what Hebrews 5:9 says and means.

    The word pure in a KJVO context

    It is an opportunity to proclaim Christ, the Christian revelation, in the passages which people cite in this regard.

    The word pure in a KJVO context

    Now that both of the more common views have been posted regarding the word pure and with reference to Psalm 12:6 either in this thread or others, it is the context in which Psalm 12:6 was written that merits attention. It is poetry in which man's motives, words, and action are contrasted to...

    Ellen White: "The man Christ Jesus was not the Lord God Almighty" (SDA BIBLE Commentary, Volume 5, page 1129).

    If a person ignores the immediate context of Scripture he is ignoring what Scripture actually says and will almost invariably misunderstand it to a greater or lesser degree. You chose to comment on what White said about said about Philippians 2:9 as did I. There was no comment or insinuation on...

    Ellen White: "The man Christ Jesus was not the Lord God Almighty" (SDA BIBLE Commentary, Volume 5, page 1129).

    Yes, since Paul is exhorting the Phillipians using Christ as an example it is out of context, illogical, and false to conclude that the passage teaches or implies that Jesus is not God. “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,” (Phili 2:5, EMTV)

    The word pure in a KJVO context

    Thank you. Just a random thought, some seem to use pure with regard to the, "Reformation Bible," to indicate that they refer to that text and not another. Those same people seem to be aware that the text itself is not, "pure," but that is not a reason for them to play version bingo.

    The Reformation

    Morning, DB! There is more than one sentence in the box. You haven't pointed out the connection from the text of the passage. Is this to be an endless guessing game or are you going to explain your claim from the text of Hebrews 5:9? Snipped out of context citation because the topic is...
