Exactly Glory. And we receive the mark of Jesus Christ again in two days on Ash Wednesday. I've read that the last letter in the Hebrew alphabet is the mark of the cross, +. I don't know where I read that, it could have been in here. The following chart is the Old Hebrew alphabet from roughly the 8t...

I didn't bother watching the da vinci files movie because I had previously read the predecessor, the book called Holy Blood, Holy Grail. It was the most disgusting book I've ever read. I had to put it down many times before finishing it. Apparently Opy and the da vinci files crowd are coming out wit...

Very nice post Glory71. I comfort in the fact that Jesus gave Mary to us as our Mother too. Rob, Re. the Assumption, see this: http://www.salvationhistory.com/studies/lesson/queen_the_queen_assumed_into_heaven This is a very good web site. With lots of Biblical reference it shows how Catholics shoul...

Hmm. The Douay-Rheims Bible does not find Elisha or for that matter Elijah either. But it shows 95 occurrences for Elias . The King James Bible has both Elias and Elijah. The Douay-Rheims Bible shows Elias in the spots where the King James Bible shows Elijah. I'm not sure who Elisha would be in the ...

Interesting, yeah the Douay-Rheims Bible in Ezechiel 10:13 translates the word "Voluble"... That is, rolling wheels, galgal. Also from the Douay-Rheims Bible it gives 39 occurrences for a search for Galgal , being a place over against the east side of the city of Jericho where the people led by Josu...

Fidesetratio thanks for reading the 3 pages at the Hub Pages forum. I think it should be noted that the Church Fathers were obviously remembering that the first Christian persecutors were Jews. Regarding Catholic - Jewish relations at the time the Church Fathers had just one goal, the same as it sti...

Yes many do believe in reincarnation nad it has become more popular in recent years in Judaism. . Ive never heard of any form of Christianity teaching "reincarnation" so im a bit stumped as to how some forms of Judaism beleive in it since we both share the Old Testament? I admit I havnt read the Ol...

Well no it doesn't help Ariel. As I previously posted from one of the Jewish web sites "Israel is NOT supported by the majority of the world's Jewish people", yet you reply by calling them "fringe extremists". Of course Neturei Karta representatives met with the president of Iran. There are Jews liv...

From a Christian theological perspective, I would not say that Easter "replaces" Passover. The Passover stands on its own as a miraculous event in the history of the Jewish people and therefore in our history as Christians. For Christians, the Passover and Exodus foreshadow a future and even greate...

Very interesting Thoma.

This is one more reason why I do not fully agree with Ariel's 6 page essay titled 'Israel: A Prophetic Sign?'

You can read my other reasons in the Christian Zionism section.

I find your posts fascinating Thoma.

Thank you
Mike

Jews against Zionism

Hi Ariel Ben Ami I just finished reading your 6 page essay titled Israel: A Prophetic Sign? and found it very interesting. But I do have some questions and possibly some contradictions. First I want to tell you that I am just a Catholic lay person from southern Ontario, Canada so there is a possibil...
