A Reconciliation of the 4 Empty Tomb Accounts in the Gospels

Some have claimed that Jesus' empty tomb accounts by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are contradictory and impossible to reconcile. Yet such claims are riddled with underlying assumptions that are not given in the text, such as the women visited the empty tomb only once or they traveled in a pack and never separated from …

How Are the Prophet Daniel, Antiochus IV, and Hanukkah Related?

In the 6th century B.C., Daniel prophesied the four kingdoms of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome through Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in Daniel 2 and in his own visions and dreams in Daniel 7 and 8.

Daniel in the Liberal Revisionists’ Lions’ Den: When, Where, and Who Wrote the Book of Daniel?

Modern liberal revisionists can't stomach the view that Daniel correctly prophesied a variety of events that occurred decades and centuries after his time, so they have invented the notion (following the 3rd century A.D. pagan Porphyry) that Daniel was written by an imposter in the 2nd century B.C. who duped ancient Jews into thinking his …

Before that, everyone (including numerous people in the New Testament, such as Jesus, John, and Paul) attributed the book to a single …

It seems evident that we may have some wolves in sheep's clothing on the translation committees of some English versions of the Bible, such as the NRSV. In this blog, I make a case for reading multiple …

Christianity VS Judaism on Genesis 3 and the FALL

My Jewish coworker recommended that I listen to a video entitled "Playing God" by Rabbi Lorge. You can access the full video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhX6D8barAk&t=0s.
