Why is Jesus called Christ? 10 Morality and Religion 4/16/14 9:14pm
BATCATGIRL
Not supported by etymology. Khristos, from Greek khrio (xpiw) meaning "to rub or smear" from PIE *ghrei. This is why khristos was used as a translation of Hebrew mashiakh. Krishna, from Sanskrit krsna meaning "black" - cognates are evident in Slavic, for example Bulgarian cheren or Polish czarny.

Funny you should describe the Paige Turner that way; in the 2k14 game, it's called the Modified Russian Leg Sweep. :3nod:

Technically, yeah - it's a reduced form of Y@hoshua. Joshua is the modern equivalent, which is the only reason I say it that way. :3nod: (As for Jesus - it's because the Greeks were allergic to having masculine names end in a - so the transliteration Ιηοσ­­υα was changed to Ιηοσυς.)

The Jews didn't have surnames in the first century; you were "you son/daughter of your father" (so, for example, "Bartholomew" = bar (son of) Talmai (or possibly Ptolemy.) "Christ", from khristos "anointed," is the Greek version of Hebrew messiah (mashiakh,) from m-sh-kh "anoint." The reference is the ritual use of oil to sanctify a person of importance, typically a new king or high priest. ...

Lego is satanic, says priest 36 Morality and Religion 4/14/14 11:54am

Your tabloids did; I haven't been able to find any confirmation. Perhaps the local news from Poznan might have some insight? I thought so at first; but one of the Polish tabloid articles (on se.pl - Super Express) is from local-noonish on 31 March. It might be, though.

Bible translated from to the original texts? 46 Morality and Religion 4/4/14 6:51pm
Turnilk
It tells you right on the page: the Greek is from the Textus Receptus - and the copyright-info link on the Bible versions will tell you that it is a copy of the Stephanus revision of the TR, circa 1550. The thing is, "as literal as possible" is still something you'll need to investigate on your own, due to the differences between languages. As one example, bethulah (virgin) and almah (maiden ...

That's not what I asked. Rephrasing: is portraying a character the same thing as claiming to be the character? If so, why do you think these two concepts are equivalent?

Do you believe that all actors claim to be the characters that they portray? For example, "Because Hayden Christensen claimed he was Anakin Skywalker from Tatooine who was incarnated by the Force, and could perform Jedi abilities." "Because Christopher Lambert claimed he was Connor MacLeod from 16th century Scotland whose immortality was awakened the first time he died, and could perform sou ...

My point was more was this. A = verifiable historical elements (eg, the Titanic sunk; Quirinius was Legate of Syria when Iudaea Province was incorporated, and took a census) B = written while possible subjects / witnesses were actually alive (the technical term is "contemporary history" or living memory.) It still does not necessarily follow that A + B = a work is historically accurate on ...

Hierarchy of Angels
I should clarify myself then. Even having evidence (not just the printed stories and the movie, but archaeological evidence of the ship) of the Titanic and its sinking, and even though the movie came into existence while there were yet living eyewitnesses to the event, we do not take the movie's events as describing actual history. Even if the gospels were written within the lifetime of ey ...

Hierarchy of Angels
Except that people of other religions tend not to believe in the Christian formulation of the Abrahamic God either, while others have considered those sayings (or the postulations concerning these entities' existence) and found them inconsistent. Still, in order for Jesus to be a myth, it would have to be shown that the gospel accounts were highly embellished and inaccurately copied and trans ...

Leviticus in Christianity 16 Morality and Religion 3/14/14 1:45am

A question for you: did God lie to the Hebrews? Consider Deuteronomy 30 for example. Here God says that the purpose of the law: "11 “For this commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach. 12 It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will go up to heaven for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?’ 13 Nor i ...
