Eriq, you are a piece of work. The "between the evenings" reference is from Ex 13; it refers to when to slaughter the lamb. The lamb, that if it's blood wasn't on the lintels of your doorway, meant every firstborn in the house would die - during the night. You can bet that the Israelites k...

ערב means mingle; what is being mingled depends on the context. It is a mistranslation to speak of it as "night" - yet that is, unfortunately recorded in Strongs. Gen 49:27, Lev 6:20, Job 7:4 are the only places it is translated that way, and translating as "evening" is perfec...

eriqbenel - go ahead and keep showing us what a scoffer you are. That's not my translation, that's the translation from the Institute for Scriptural Research. And I just showed the Greek phrases used, which show that the Sabbath was over before dawn the day after. My contention is that the sabbath ...

Technically, I'm not a "sunrise to sunrise" proponent. I propose a day is a day - the time from dawn to sundown. Later, they came to reckon the day from the end of the previous day - that is, after sundown the night before the day. Mainly because people were starting o make appointments a...

Arnold... the time spoken of as "night" in that verse is specifically midnight. Not evening. I thought I had made that clear. Midnight (ishyon) is never evening (ereb). And certainly twilight (nesheph) would preclude midnight (ishyon), too. As I have said before, you can't make crucial dec...

Heh, that booklet uses a quote out of context from ISA 28 (not ISA 29, as they mistakenly attribute). It is actually one of my favorite verses about how if your explanation gets too complex, it's likely wrong: Isa 28:9 Whom would He teach knowledge? And whom would He make to understand the message? ...

You don't have to believe me, Arnold. In fact, I already knew you would not when I posted.

I pray that you will one day understand. I can do no more.

ערב means "mingle" or "mix" when use of time, it is the time of mixed light, that is, the dusk - the whole period from when it is no longer bright until it is dark. That's the word translated "evening" in Lev 11. No one at all conversant in Hebrew would suggest that ...

Honestly, I think anyone who thinks that a man marrying multiple women at the same time is "unscriptural" just does not know the scriptures. Monogamy, like Sunday as the rest day, is a Popism. Made up by the Pope for control. And another example of why almost all "protestants" ar...

Jay Vincent is being a doofus. You see, he thinks that if he claims he's not a person, certain laws won't apply to him. As I posted earlier, all of the Hebrew and Greek translated directly "person" applies to you and I. And Jay. Have you ever heard of "diplomatic immunity"? One ...

Well, now, Arnold says "conjunction"; he denies Enoch has any bearing, because that says "when light first enters". The Jews say sightable sliver, yet a third choice. So, yeah, I'm at a loss. I honestly do not know for certain that I'm not a day late - or maybe a day early. I kno...

Someone wrote, "The truth is that the scriptures are silent as to what constitutes a New Moon. RESPONSE ; If this were true, then it would also be true that we cannot keep any of the feast that He commands us to keep. We could not Keep the Day of Atonement on the 10th day of the seventh moon i...
