HUNTING THE “MIGHTY HUNTER” – NIMROD

More Than the Antichrist Archetype?

One of the most intriguing characters in the Old Testament is Nimrod, son of Cush, and grandson of Ham. His name often comes up as the archetype of the Antichrist. It turns out that when we dig into the story surrounding Nimrod, there is much more to be said about his importance than just the speculation that he might be figure who arises again in the last days (“who was, is not, but will be again” – Revelation 17:8) as the Antichrist.

THE RECEIVED TEXT VS. THE CRITICAL TEXT: WHICH ONE IS RIGHT?

DOES A ‘RECEIVED TEXT’ IMPLY INERRANCY?

While champions of the superiority of the King James Bible argue that it is based on the “received text” and is categorically different from the “critical text,” this claim turns out to be ERRONEOUS. We only have to consider the history of how we got our Christian Bible to realize that the label “the received text” falsely assumes its composition was inspired and NOT the result of critical examination.  This position contends that God inspired the one, perfectly, while the other was the result of “man manipulating God’s word.”  This position believes today’s “critical Read More

Without the Greek Septuagint, The New Testament Might Have Been Written in Aramaic

There was one book which existed prior to the New Testament that was enormously influential in the development of the Christian Bible.  It is the Septuagint.  This book was not just “the Old Testament” – it was how the religion of the Jews was understood around the world by religious Jews during most of the so-called ‘Second Temple Period’ – for 350 years – from 280 B.C. to 70 A.D.

While Rome was politically in control of Judaea, the language used there was not Latin.  Instead, the … Read More

THE MOST UNDERRATED BIBLE FIGURE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

WHO IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FIGURE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT THAT PROTESTANTS GENERALLY DISREGARD?  YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED.  WE MIGHT THINK ONE OF THE KINGS LIKE JOSIAH OR HEZEKIAH WHO BROUGHT REVIVAL TO JUDAH. BUT ACTUALLY, IT WAS A PRIEST.

His name was written Esdras in Greek (and in the Septuagint). But we know him by his anglicized name, Ezra.

Ezra is an underappreciated Old Testament figure in Protestant circles. This opinion stands in enormous disparity with rabbinic Judaism (today’s Judaism), who sees him as a second Moses. While some scholars believe Ezra lived just 40 years, from 480 … Read More
