  1. Let's boil down to the 'practicality' of this discussion: 1. The Romans are not stupid. They must have figured out after their first few executions that it is very tedious to plant a stake or cross each time somebody is executed. It will be far more easier to use a dead tree or have a permanently planted pole (stake / xylon) and simply raise and attach on top a stauros / patibulum with the condemned nailed to it. 2. A whole cross would weigh well over 135 kg (300 lb), but the crossbeam would not be quite as burdensome, weighing around 45 kg (100 lb). (
  • Jesus carried it initially. Later, the Roman soldiers "compelled" Simon of Cyrene to carry it for him....
  • The word 'responsible' is not mine. I typed it in quotation marks..... Nah, you know what I mean.....
  • "I shall prove to be what I shall prove to be" is a literal translation of eyyeh-asher-ehyeh. Nehemiah Gordon, a Karaite Jew and a Dead Sea Scroll researcher translates it that way directly from his Hebrew bible. The translation is not a JW exclusive.
  • Hi folks. Just tuned in late, but this is how I see it: 1. Jesus carried the stauros or stake. 2. Both of his HANDS were nailed to it while grasping it, a meter or a yard apart. That is, nails were driven from the back, not from the palms. 3. He was then HANGED on a stake, creating a letter "T" cross. Probably the stauros (patibulum) had a notch that would fit nicely at the top of the already upright stake. 4. The feet were then nailed or tied tight to prevent a further escape. With the above, we can reconcile the following: 1. Jesus was nailed to a S
  • I think Leah must have said she wanted an interview re JW beliefs. And the answers are of course on the jw.org website. If she asked to interview about something NOT on the website, then I suppose, she had her day! Maybe at the very least, a 'responsible' brother will be willing to be interviewed.
  • Lately, I came across this blog:
      Hello guest!
    Nehemia Gordon, a Karaite Jew and Dead Sea Scroll researcher has proof that the pronunciation of the tetragramaton is YehoVAH in Hebrew (Jehovah in English). What can you say?
  • The actions of these people could easily trigger the start of the Great Tribulation wherein Babylon the Great is burned by the 10-horned beast. In the end, to Jehovah belongs the victory and this will usher in the New World order....
  • Dear Librarian, Let us be vigilant lest we inadvertently post spoofs and inaccurate "news" like this one!
  • Did you opened the link? That was the proof! Anyway, to make it convenient for you, here it is again, just click on it:
      Hello guest!
  • The NWT Committee determined that there is compelling evidence that the Tetragrammaton did appear in the original Greek manuscripts. The decision was based on the following evidence: • Copies of the Hebrew Scriptures used in the days of Jesus and his apostles contained the Tetragrammaton throughout the text. • In the days of Jesus and his apostles, the Tetragrammaton also appeared in Greek translations of the Hebrew Scriptures. • The Christian Greek Scriptures (NT) themselves report that Jesus often referred to God’s name and made it known to others. (John 17:6, 11, 12, 26) Jesu
  • The word translated "worship" is προσκυνέω (proskyneo) in Greek. So what is the meaning of προσκυνέω? According to a Greek lexicon, this could mean: 1. to kiss the hand to (towards) one, in token of reverence 2. among the Orientals, esp. the Persians, to fall upon the knees and touch the ground with the forehead as an expression of profound reverence 3. in the NT by kneeling or prostration to do homage (to one) or make obeisance, whether in order to express respect or to make supplication
      Hello guest!
  • What Really Is a Prophet According to the Bible? - When Ezekiel in a vision was told to “prophesy to the wind,” he simply expressed God’s command to the wind. (Eze 37:9, 10) - When individuals at Jesus’ trial covered him, slapped him, and then said, “Prophesy to us, you Christ. Who is it that struck you?” they were not calling for prediction but for Jesus to identify the slappers by divine revelation. (Mt 26:67, 68; Lu 22:63, 64) - The Samaritan woman at the well recognized Jesus as “a prophet” because he revealed things about her past that he could not have known except by divi
  • Case 1: Annie. Her mom used to be a witness but was disfellowed. Shunning will remind the mother of the gravity of her acts, that is an unrepentant attitude. Note that a person is disfellowed not for a particular sin, but because such person is unrepentant. Case 2: Taro. His parents are NOT witnesses in the first place. That explains his attitude. I hope this answers your dilemma on "blatant hypocrisy",
