Let’s do a little experiment. What if one translated according to the grammatical rules without picking and choosing which grammatical rules to follow and when in favor of bias or tradition? For God so loved.. the “so” is a word that means “thus” or “in this way”. For thus God loved the world… “World” is […]
There are enigmas and riddles innumerable in the Scriptures. Maybe all of it is a riddle. “Sheep”, “goats”, “vipers”, “doves”, etc. Did you know that “Man” and “Woman” also constitute figures of speech in the Bible?

Judges 5:7 literal Her name Deborah דְּבּוֹרָה means bee. Because she stings or has a stinger perhaps? The Hebrew for bee is from דָבַר dabar which means to speak, from which the word דָבָר of Elohim is derived. […]
In Focus on the Family’s article How Can Woman Be Made in the Image of a Male God? the following question is posed: How is it possible for both men and women to be made in the Divine Image when the Bible speaks of God primarily in masculine terms? I’m wondering if all the talk I’ve been […]
