I haven't been following this thread all that much, but for an interesting different understanding of Gen 3:8 see footnotes # 21 thru 27 in the NET (here).

Re: Chiastic Structure in Genesis

I added a couple of links in this post regarding evidence that earth was once covered in water. This would coincide with Gen 1:2, 6-10. It would also allow for God reversing Gen 1:9-10 as a means of producing a global deluge. In other words, if one can believe Gen 1:9-10 to be true, this would also ...

Re: Is Jesus Abaddon?

For cross-reference purposes, I have some material on the locust plague of Joel and discussion of the WT's new light in this thread and included links. On the question of who is the angel of the abyss, the word (for "abyss") occurs only 9 times in the NT: Lu 8:31; Rom 10:7; Rev 9:1, 2, 11;...

Re: Genesis 1:4

Well, if it helps you, post away. Here is some of Genesis' amazing literary structure related to the posts you made already. I've had some sublime satisfaction looking at how Genesis is put together. Not just some ancient texts cobbled together. But very beautifully and thoughtfully structured. Bobcat

Re: Personal scriptural musings on The Trinity

Hate to butt in, but ... What I think happened: Apollos has some outside contractors working on fixing the problems with the forum. The fix includes/involves upgrading to a more current version of the PhP software. At some point the contractors had to make a backup copy of the database. And the fact...

Re: Apologies for Outage

Just so everyone is aware, Apollos has updated the forum software. Things, so far, seem to be working much better. On the downside, it looks like it is possible that a couple of days worth of posts may have been lost (the last couple of days). At least it looks like that. That may have been one of t...
