What is the difference between spirit and soul, as used in Hebrews 4:12? I am confused because sometimes these two words seem to be used interchangeably. Is the spirit in man the Spirit of God if we have accepted Christ as Savior? Question and Answer Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words says, “The language of Hebrew 4:12 suggests...

I have often wondered about the use of the word jealousy in the Bible. Sometimes it seems to be a good thing, and at other times it seems to be evil and dangerous. God is described as a jealous God, and He certainly can’t be evil. When is jealousy right, and when is it wrong? And is jealousy the same thing as envy? Question and Answer I...

In Matthew 22:37 the word strength is dropped from the list that includes heart, soul, and mind in Mark 12:30 and Luke 10:27. It seems to me that all four are important to make it a complete picture. Do you have any thoughts on why Matthew didn’t include all four? Question and Answer The answer to this question, in this case, might be simple.

Matthew 27:52–53 seems to state that some bodily resurrections did occur at Jesus’ death before He even went to the tomb. Are these people still around today? Question and Answer On Good Friday the tombs were opened (v. 52), but it seems that these bodily resurrections occurred on the same day that Jesus was raised from among the dead, and...

I learned from Scripture that God created everything. To me, the word everything is all encompassing, meaning all things, both good and evil. My Sunday school teacher says that God did not create evil, the Devil did. I disagree. That would give the Devil a share in creation. What do you think? Question and Answer Actually, everything does...

In a conversation with hostile religious leaders about the relative worth of various Commandments, Jesus' reply to one whose words virtually paralleled His own was, “You are not far from the kingdom of God” (Mark 12:34). What did Jesus mean? That good works have some saving value in God's sight, but not quite enough to bring a sinner into...

Ever since she attended revival meetings held in a fundamentalist church, my young sister has become very religious and very intense. She says she got saved. The words “I'm saved” annoy me. They sound corny. Also, they imply that we “unsaved” people are doomed. Is “I'm saved” a legitimate way to describe one's religious condition? Question...

Are both Jesus and the Bible the Word? If so, does that mean they are the same? Question and Answer The Bible is the written Word and Jesus is the Incarnate Word. God speaks to us through His Word, which is why the Gospel of John refers to Jesus as the Word: “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the...

I often hear preachers and teachers of the Word talk about the importance of reading the Bible. I believe this and have experienced its life-giving reality in my life. I often feel a kind of dullness creeping over me, however, when I go to open it. Or, I just read mechanically without feeling anything and without remembering what I’ve read.

Countless missionaries and their ministries report incidences of very godly people and their children who go to bed at night hungry. David said, “I was young and now am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread” (Ps. 37:25). How does this fit with the reality that some born-again people are hungry today?
