8 February 2009 Biblical Studies

In a modern world, it is all too easy to allow our reliance on empirical data and facts to govern how we see and understand the world.

God has revealed himself to us in so many ways. The most meaningful and most important revelation, however, was Jesus Christ himself. In John 1:14, we are told that “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” The Almighty humbled himself and planted his feet firmly on the Earth.

John 1:5–8 presented a momentary digression about John the Baptist, a figure to whom we will return shortly, the following verses (vv. 9–13) return to the previous discussion of Word, Light, and what exactly God is doing.

Previously, I looked at John 1:1–5, the very beginning of the prologue. Now, I’d like to go to the next chunk of the gospel which raises some interesting insights about God’s plan.

Hebrews 2:9 – Separated by Grace (Part 5)

10 August 2009 Biblical Studies

When we turn to internal evidence, however, the argument no longer favors χάριτι; indeed, as Bart Ehrman has argued regarding χωρίς, “there can be no doubt concerning the superiority of this poorly attested variant.” This certainty can be illustrated best if we assume the priority of one variant and then attempt to explain how it was altered or corrupted into the other.
