1/15: Within Biblical theology, the teaching and practice of glorifying Yeshua (Jesus) is closely linked with glorifying God the Father. Let’s dive into this concept, while also examining the significant link between Yeshua and Moses in the Bible. #BibleStudy #MessianicJudaism
2/15: Yeshua consistently taught his followers to glorify God the Father. Yet, in passages like John 10:30 (‘I and the Father are one’) and John 14:9, he suggests that to know and honor him is to know and honor the Father. #BookofJohn
3/15: Shaul (Paul) and other New Testament writers also glorify Yeshua. In Philippians 2:9-11, for example, Shaul describes God exalting Yeshua and asserts that every knee should bow to him in ἐξομολογήσηται, lit. “confession of praise.” #PaulsLetters #NewTestament

MINI-THREAD: #Talmud-ic Names and the #NewTestament.

The onomastic tendencies identified by Rabinowitz share a number of significant points of contact with those of the NT’s onomasticon.

Below are some examples.
First, in the Talmud, a large number of Jews (many of whom may be Diasporised) bear both a Hebrew and a Greek/Latin-influenced name.

As examples of a Greek/Latin influence, Rabinowitz lists the names ‘Rufus’, ‘Julianus’, ‘Justus’, and ‘Aleksandri’.

It is 2020!
At the beginning of each #newyear, we make #new plans, new #resolutions, new #goals , want new #directions, forge new #paths and much more. This is wonderful. It sounds like we all want #CLARITY in our hearts about what to do and how to get it done. @PD_PneumaFaith
As I was thinking about this over the last couple of weeks, the scripture for #PneumaFaith kept coming to my mind. "The unfolding of your word gives light; it gives understanding to the simple." (Psalms 119:130 NIV). @PD_PneumaFaith
The word #UNFOLDING is used in many translations of this verse (#entrance, #teaching, #revelation, #explanation #disclosure #opening #declaration) Whatever translation we read, it implies the #reading or #meditation of the #word brings #light, #illumination ...
