Teoloë is soos Boere

26 May

Teoloë is soos Boere

Daar is teoloë wat soveel boeke as die sandkorrels van die Sahara skryf en dadels oes.

Daar is teoloë met boeke soos die bossies van die Karoo wat boer vir wol.

Daar is Bolandboereteoloë op wingerdplase wat boeke soos goedkoop wyn verbou.

En party wat boeke oprig om uit die lug die wind te pluk.

Noord is nog Boere op plase met mielies vir pitkos langs lokasies wat kom in, wat glo in die Teologie van Hoop.

Maar meeste plase word geboer deur munisipale amptenare vir hul eie, sak.

Teoloë wat veronderstel is om te werk in die boorde van Israel, waar die base Skrifgeleerdes en Fariseërs, boomuithalers en waterdiewe is.

Grandiloquence and “three days and three nights”

26 May

Grandiloquence and “three days and three nights”. – Read the full article on (original forum thread)


Whenever the three days and three nights of Matthew 12:40 is brought up in a “discussion” with 6th day crucifixion folks, they frequently argue that it is a Jewish idiom for counting any part of a day as a whole day. I wonder if anyone has documentation that shows that the phrase “x” days and “x”nights was ever used in the first century or before when it didn’t include at least parts of the “x” days and at least parts of the “x” nights?


Sure [Cut]


I don’t see where the link provides the writing requested in the OP. I wonder if you might explain why you think that it does?


Don’t you “True Believers” ever tire of picking the fly specks out of the pepper?


It was Jesus who spoke of the 3 days AND 3 nights

JOHN 11 [9] Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.[10] But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

And He knew how many hours were in a day


I have changed my view on this over the years. What I now believe is this;

Jesus was crucified on a Thursday, and was placed in the grave

before sunset. This is the first day.

Thursday evening (night) is the first night. To the Jew this was Friday.

There were two Sabbaths this week, this was the first Sabbath.

Friday is the second day.

Friday evening is the second night. To the Jew this is Saturday and the normal Sabbath. This was the second Sabbath this week.

Saturday is the third day.

Saturday evening is the third night. Sunday to the Jew.

Jesus rose from the dead sometime Saturday evening (Sat./Sun.) before sunrise.

This gives you three days and three nights.


It is GREAT you had the honesty and courage to change your views! God bless you for it!

Will you be prepared to change them again and further?

Because your change to a Thursday Crucifixion is or was most noble; but that is not where the Holy Spirit through the testimony of the Scriptures will end with you, if my own experience meant anything, for also with me, the BIG CHANGE started with the Fifth Day of the week Suffering and Death of Christ; but it was only the first development.

1)  Jesus Dies


John 19:28,30

After this, Jesus knowing

Meta touto eidohs ho Iehsous


that all things was now accomplished,

hoti ehdeh panta tetelestai


that the Scripture might be fulfilled,

hina teleiohthehi heh Grapheh,


saith, I thirst.

legei, Dipsoh!


When Jesus therefore had taken the Vinegar,

hote oun elaben to oksos


he said, It is finished:

Iehsous eipen: Tetelestai!


and he bowed his head, and gave up the spirit.

Kai klinas tehn kephalehn paredohken to pneuma.


Mark 15:37

And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the spirit.

Ho de Iehsous apheis phohnehn megalehn eksepneusen.


Luke 23:46

And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said,

Kai phohnehsas phohnehi megalehi ho Iehsous eipen:


Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit;

Pater, eis cheiras sou paratithemai to pneuma mou!


and  having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

Touto de eipohn eksepneusen.


Matthew 27:46

And about the ninth hour

Peri de tehn enatehn hohran


Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying,

aneboehsen ho Iehsous phohnehi megalehi legohn:


Eli Eli lema sabachthani?

Ehli Ehli lema sabachthani?


that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Tout’ estin: Thee mou Thee mou, hinati me enkatelipes?


Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the spirit.

Ho de Iehsous palin kraksas phohnehi megalehi aphehken to pneuma.
