Jeremiah 22:30,36:30

The claim of Jesus to the throne of David

The scriptures clearly state the claim of Jesus to the throne of David. This claim was through Solomon and eventually through Jehoiakim and Jeconiah. Both Jehoiakim and Jeconiah were cursed by God and told that they would have no physical descendants who would prosper on the throne of David. How can this seeming contradiction be reconciled?

Proverb 26:4-5

Answer not a fool according to his folly"

We know that God does not contradict himself yet it seems there is a direct contradiction in verses 4-5 in Proverbs 26. What does this mean?

Matthew 28:19-20

Observe all things I have commanded you

What is the meaning of the words "observe all things I have commanded you" in Matt. 28:20?

 

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."

The Disciples of Christ were also commanded to go and make disciples; to preach; to travel from city to city preaching; and to heal the sick and raise the dead? Does this mean that all of the followers of Christ today are required to keep all of these specific commandments?

Bombing in Afghanistan

Are Christadelphians for or against the bombing in Afghanistan?

Isaiah 19:23-25

What does Isaiah 19: 23-25 have reference to?

The passage reads:

"In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed beEgypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance."

Judges 11:31,32,34,39

What really happened to Jephthah's daughter?

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

In view of the implications of a Trinitarian approach, why do we use the expression "in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?"

1 John 5:16-17

What is a sin unto death?

In 1 John 5 we read "If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death." What is a sin unto death?

Matthew 12:31-32

Sin against the Holy Spirit

What is the sin against the Spirit referred to in Matt 12:31-32:

"Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come."

Matthew 2:23

He shall be called a Nazarene

Matthew 2:23 reads: "And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene."

I am unable to find an Old Testament reference to support this claim. Can you help?

1 Corinthians 5:5

To deliver such an one unto Satan

What did the Apostle Paul mean when he told the Corinthians: "To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus"?

Hebrews 11:13-16

Why don't disciples of Christ vote?

Whenever we go through an election period I am often asked about voting. I usually manage to skirt the issue, but often end up asking myself again; exactly why do I refrain from voting? I would appreciate some help with this subject.

Luke 8:28

What have I to do with thee...?

There are several instances in the New Testament similar to Luke 8:28 where Jesus is told: "What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high". This phrase also appears several times in the Old Testament. For example, in I Kings 17:18, Elijah is told: "What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God?"

The expression seems to be associated with the healing of an affliction that has been brought on through the consequences of either personal sin, or as the result of our sin-cursed nature. What are your thoughts on this phrase?

Revelation 20

Satan bound for a thousand years

We read in Revelation 20:2,7 that "the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan" is bound for a thousand years and then loosed. There are at least two opinions on how these words should be interpreted. How would you recommend dealing with the lack of agreement?

Exodus 33:11,20
