More on Parity

Some time ago, I had written about a concept I had called scriptural parity. The idea being that as information is edited in the texts, it would still be preserved or perhaps the evidence of things would be preserved. I’ve found this tremendously helpful in unraveling many scriptural problems I was having before. Things that didn’t add up.

Here is an example. Though I didn’t find this myself it is very very interesting:

Luk 3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form, as a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

Act 13:33 that God hath fulfilled the same unto our children, in that he raised up Jesus; as also it is written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

Psa 2:7 I will tell of the decree: Jehovah said unto me, Thou art my son; This day have I begotten thee.

Heb 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, This day have I begotten thee? and again, I will be to him a Father, And he shall be to me a Son?

Some of you may recall from the old Levitical codes of the requirement for two or three witnesses before testimony was considered to be valid. Of the four passages above, which is valid?

What does begotten mean? Something to think about.

Mar 10:17 And as he was setting out on his journey, a man ran up and knelt before him and asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
Mar 10:18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.

I’ve only met one person who explained that passage with any level of sense.

Another one came into my inbox a couple days ago:

Mar 10:29 Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel,
Mar 10:30 who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.

Hmmmm… so does this mean we lands and extra mothers in heaven? I have my own answers on this.

Do you? Perhaps you should seek until you find?
