Augustine of Hippo bothered by John 17:3

“But this, saith He, is life eternal, that they may know Thee [the Father] the only true God, and Jesus Christ, Whom Thou hast sent. The [proper] order of the words is: That Thee [the Father] and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent, they may know to be the only true God.” 

(Augustine (1849). The Gospel According to St. John, and His First Epistle, Volume 2 (Henry Browne, trans.). Oxford: John Henry Parker. p. 952)

VERSUS

John 17:3 New International Version (NIV)
3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

Matthew 28:19 vs. Luke 9:26….Are Angels part of the Trinity too?

Addressing Larry Hurtado….

For some odd reason, I can’t seem to comment anymore on his blog. Hmmm….
So I have decided to comment here 🙂

This comment is in response to this:

Thanks for your reply,
For the record, here is the quote about literacy during the time of Jesus I am referring to:
“Several significant studies of literacy have appeared in recent years showing just how low literacy rates were in antiquity. The most frequently cited study is by Columbia professor William Harris in a book titled Ancient Literacy. By thoroughly examining all the surviving evidence, Harris draws the compelling though surprising conclusion that in the very best of times in the ancient world, only about 10 percent of the population could read at all and possibly copy out writing on a page. Far fewer than this, of course, could compose a sentence, let alone a story, let alone an entire book. And who were the people in this 10 percent? They were the upper-class elite who had the time, money, and leisure to afford an education. This is not an apt description of Jesus’s disciples. They were not upper-crust aristocrats.
In Roman Palestine the situation was even bleaker. The most thorough examination of literacy in Palestine is by a professor of Jewish studies at the University of London, Catherine Hezser, who shows that in the days of Jesus probably only 3 percent of Jews in Palestine were literate. Once again, these would be the people who could read and maybe write their names and copy words. Far fewer could compose sentences, paragraphs, chapters, and books. And once again, these would have been the urban elites.

Haydock on Genesis 30:24 ( Joseph is not a Theophoric name!!!)

Haydock Catholic Bible Commentary On The Old Testament

Ver. 24.  Joseph.  In imposing this name, Rachel looks both to the past and to the future; thanking God for taking away (asop) her reproach, and begging that He would add (isop or Joseph) the blessing of another son, as he really did, though it occasioned her death: so little do we know what we ask for!  Joseph means one “adding or increasing.”  C. xlix. 22.  H. — He was born when the 14 years of service were over; being a most glorious figure of Jesus Christ, who came to redeem us from slavery.  D.

Examining the I AM of John 8:58

Taken (with notes )from here: https://christianpublishinghouse.co/2018/10/18/john-858-theological-bias-in-bible-translation/

John 8:58 is one of the most hotly debated verses in the Bible, so our investigation begins and ends here.

UASV ESV, LEB, HCSB, RSV NLV CEV
Jesus said to them, “Most truly I say to you, Before Abraham came to beI have been in existence.” Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham wasI am.” Jesus said to them, “For sure, I tell you, before Abraham was bornI was and am and always will be! Jesus answered, “I tell you for certain that even before Abraham wasI was, and I am.”
NLT NAB TEV, GNT NASB, ASV
Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even bornI Am! Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham came to beI AM.” “I am telling you the truth,” Jesus replied. “Before Abraham was born‘I AM’.” Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was bornI am.”
John 8:58 American Translation (AT) Jesus said to them, “I tell you, I existed beforeAbraham was born!
