Question and Answer

February 1, 2013

I have been enjoying the Scriptures in the recently published narrative, The Voice. Can this type of paraphrasing be a single source or should it be balanced with more traditional translations? Question and Answer The short answer is that while a paraphrase, carefully chosen, can be a useful supplement, it should not be used exclusively...

Who accompanied Mary on her trip from Nazareth to a small village Ein Kerem outside Jerusalem where her cousin Elizabeth lived? It seems like such a long trip for a single woman who was expecting a child to travel alone. Question and Answer The village is about two or three hours by car from Nazareth—approximately 120 miles. Of course, Mary...

I’m a man in my late 20s, and I’m still single. I frequently get teased about being single. It’s not that I don’t want to get married; I just haven’t found the right person. The apostle Paul seems to think that there is a place for celibacy for some believers who have the gift of singleness. I’m not sure that’s me, but if that’s God’s plan...

My wife just nags me constantly. Nothing I do seems even close to pleasing her. Frankly, I’m fed up. The single life sure looks appealing these days. Marriage is just too much work. What can I do to change her? Question and Answer A lot of us men seem to think that it’s the woman’s responsibility to make a marriage work. While I believe...

I have always thought of God as someone who is on His throne in heaven counting all the things I’ve done, keeping track of all the good and the bad things. I’ve been a Christian for five years, and I know that I’m saved and His blood has cleansed me of all my sin, but I still see Him as counting every single sin I commit, looking for every...

Was the star the Wise Men followed when they were looking for Jesus visible in the daytime? Or could they see it only at night? Question and Answer Matthew is our only reliable source of information about the star, and he doesn’t give technical details, except to say that the Wise Men first saw the star “when it rose,” or as rendered in...

Question 1

Jacob, David, Solomon, and Abraham—to name a few in the Bible—were men who had more than one wife. Why were these men honored and blessed by God? They broke God’s commandment! Did God wink at their sin back then, but now He condemns it? Question 1 When we study the Old Testament, we find neither an explicit condemnation of polygamy nor explicit...

With reference to Jesus, Acts 4:12 says, “Salvation is found in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven given to men, by which we must be saved.” What about people who lived before Jesus? I’m wondering about Aztecs and Eskimos who never heard a prophet or saw a line of Scripture? Question and Answer This is a frequent question...

I’ve always been taught that Deborah was chosen to lead as a judge in Israel because no men were willing to do the job. But I see no evidence of that in Scripture. From what I read, she was a judge because she had the people’s respect, and they came to her to be judged. Is this accurate? Question and Answer The story of Deborah is often...

I am confused about gender issues. A former boyfriend wants to change his gender; he wants to become a woman. I think that’s crazy (and sinful). But my mother thinks I am sinful. Every time I wear slacks, which is nearly every day, she reminds me that the Bible tells women not to wear men’s clothing. What about these things? Question and...
