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!

Critique of ‘3 Ways to Graciously Engage KJV-Only Believers’ By Mark Ward

https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/3-ways-graciously-engage-kjv-believers/

A christian article that I found funny, and I thought I should share it:

(MY COMMENTS ARE IN RED)

JULY 26, 2018 | Mark Ward

Don Carson pled with them for realism 40 years ago, and James White urged them to trust modern translations 20 years ago. But I sense that conservative evangelicalism has now given up on critiquing King James Version-onlyism. (Physician heal thyself)

But there are tens or perhaps even hundreds of thousands of KJV-only Christians around the world, and a new generation is taking leadership in the movement. ( That is scary, ignorance breeds ignorance )

It’s time to make another gentle appeal.

Red or Yellow Heifer? (Qur’an 2:69 vs. Numbers 19:2)

Qur’an 2:69

They said, Call on your Lord for us, to show us what colour she should be. He answered, God says she should be a bright yellow heifer, pleasing to the eye.

VERSUS

Numbers 19:2 King James Version (KJV)

2 This is the ordinance of the law which the Lord hath commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer without spot, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke:

Christian Women Have To Wear Hijab According To The Bible

Commentary 🙂

Blogging Theology

Kaleef K. Karim

Is covering the hair a religious commandment for Christian women? Does the Bible impose Hijab on Christian women? There can be only one answer to this: yes, it is! Simply, a person only needs to open the Bible, go to 1st Corinthians, chapter 11 verses 3-10,

  But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying with his head covered, disgraces his head. But every woman praying or prophesying with her head uncovered disgraces her head, for it is the same as if she were shaven. For if a woman is not covered, let her be shaven. But if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, let her cover her head.

Was Mary a Jew, Levite or both? -The Qur’an Answers-

Qur’an 19:27-28

27 Then she brought him to her people, carrying him. They said, “O Mary, you have certainly done a thing unprecedented.

Jesus orders Prostitutes to be BURNED!!!

Technically Moses did, and Moses heard from Yahweh, so Yahweh did, and Jesus is Yahweh, so Jesus did !!! 🙂

Leviticus 21
“‘If a priest’s daughter defiles herself by becoming a prostitute, she disgraces her father; she must be burned in the fire.

This goes against the authentic hadith:

It was narrated from ‘Ikrimah that ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) burned some people. News of that reached Ibn ‘Abbaas and he said:If it were me, I would not have burned them, because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:“Do not punish with the punishment of Allah.” And I would have executed them as the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever changes his religion, then execute him.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (3017).

And

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that he said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) sent us on a mission and said: “If you find So and so, and So and so, then burn them with fire.” Then the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said, when we were about to leave: “I had commanded you to burn So and so, and So and so. But verily no one punishes with fire except Allah. So if you find them, execute them.”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari (3016)

60 Manuscripts out of the 5,800 total Greek, contain the whole NT.

When the Ottomans Came to Ireland’s Aid

Taken from here: https://ilmfeed.com/when-the-islamic-state-came-to-irelands-aid/

The Great Irish Famine which began in 1845 resulted in the deaths of over 1 million people. The news reached Ottoman Sultan Caliph Abdulmajid so he declared his intention to send £10,000 (worth £800,000 today) to help the Irish people but the Queen of England requested that the Sultan send only £1,000 because she had sent only £2,000 herself. The Sultan sent the £1,000 but also secretly sent 3 ships full of food. The English courts tried to prevent the ships but Ottoman sailors succeeded in docking secretly at the small port of Drogheda and delivered the food.
