Is this story a macro end-time parable? Esther the Chosen Lady and Vashti is the one she replaces? The story has been viewed as though the King and his guests were a bunch of drunken partyers and that he was some sort of misogynist. The irony is, the very attacking of his character and actions […]
כַטָּמֵא֙ כֻּלָּ֔נוּ וּכְבֶ֥גֶד עִדִּ֖ים כָּל־ צִדְקֹתֵ֑ינוּ the whole of us are like the unclean, like garments of menstruation is the whole of our justice… Isaiah 64:6 TNCLT (truthful, non-contrived, literal translation) Since our righteousness [justice] has to do with faith, this is a call to repentance from our unbelieving hearts….and our faithless high-school crap-happy translations. […]
waiting for and hasting to the presence of the day of God, by which the heavens, being on fire, shall be dissolved, and the elements with burning heat shall melt; 2 Peter 3:12 YLT Many translations render this interpretively under the bizarre thought that the Heavens could be destroyed. Really? I’ve thought many a time, […]
The working theory is that “tongues” involves a group effort to enclose secrets within the common man’s language (both Hebrew and Greek). This means if you didn’t know one (like Jesus) was “speaking in a tongue” you would mistake his sayings for something that seemed to apply to normal colloquialism, culture, or social constructs.

This is an alternative version of gibbor. It also seems to be the counterpart to the Greek word ischyron. The word is described as “chiefly poetic” and refers to “man as strong”. Brown-Driver-Briggs I. גֶּ֫בֶר66 noun masculine man (Late Hebrew id., MI16 גברן (plural), Aramaic גְּבַר, ; Assyrian gabru, rival is Akkadian Loan-word according to […]
At least seven different words, yet traditionally consolidated into one–hell. The word “hell” was engineered in this way from the 8th century Anglo-Saxon pagan word that spoke of an abode or nether world of the dead. It was not the same as what it came to be defined as. The word is not ever used […]
In the Hebrew Scriptures the “desolate house” was a “widow”, not merely a wife who lost her husband. Source: Strong’s Hebrew: 490. אַלְמָנָה (almanah) — a widow
nor shall they say, Lo, here; or lo, there; for lo, the reign of God is inside you.’ Luke 17:21 YLT Translators and scholars don’t want to hear what it really says. A better word could not be chosen to express inside. The Greek word is entos. And is also used by Jesus here, and […]
for myself indeed, him-who-is-away-from the body, yet him-who-is-near the spirit, even now, as him-who-is-near, have judged the-one, thus working out this-one in the name of the Master of ourselves Jesus Christ — those-who-have-been-gathered of yourselves, and of myself of spirit — with the power of the Master of ourselves, Jesus, to hand over such a […]
Matt has been studying ancient Hebrew for almost 20 years. It led him straight out of the Church which never wanted him anyway. Asked too many questions, questioned too many things.
