EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is an excerpt from The Legacy of the King James Bible: Celebrating 400 Years of the Most Influential EnglishTranslation by Leland Ryken (Crossway). This section is taken from Chapter 4, "The King James Bible of 1611. " The King James Version . . . is greatly cherished.

Judaism 101 is an online encyclopedia of Judaism, covering Jewish beliefs, people, places, things, language, scripture, holidays, practices and customs. My goal is to make freely available a wide variety of basic, general information about Judaism, written from a traditional perspective in plain English.

This web site has grown continually for more than 10 years and continues to be updated periodically. The information in this site is written predominantly from the Orthodox viewpoint, because I believe that is a good starting point for any inquiry into Judaism. As recently as 300 years ago, this was the only Judaism, and it still is the only Judaism in many parts of the world. Be aware, however, that many Jews do not follow all of the traditions described here, or do not follow them in the precise form described here. Where to Start There are over eighty web pages on this site, comprising over 300 pages of text, a virtual book of information on Judaism. Just browsing? A List of the 613 Mitzvot (Commandments) Where did the Genesis Flood waters go? - ChristianAnswers. The whole Earth was covered with the Flood waters, and the world that then existed was destroyed by the very waters out of which the Earth had originally emerged at God's command (Genesis 1:9; 2 Peter 3:5-6).

But where did those waters go after the Flood? There are a number of Scripture passages that identify the Flood waters with the present-day seas (Amos 9:6 and Job 38:8-11 note “waves”). If the waters are still here, why are the highest mountains not still covered with water, as they were in Noah's day? Psalm 104 suggests an answer. After the waters covered the mountains (verse 6), God rebuked them and they fled (verse 7); the mountains rose, the valleys sank down (verse 8) and God set a boundary so that they will never again cover the Earth (verse 9)[1]. They are the same waters! Isaiah gives this same statement that the waters of Noah would never again cover the Earth (Isaiah 54:9). That is why the oceans are so deep, and why there are folded mountain ranges. A Mechanism? Footnotes. Ark of the Covenant. Press here for video. One day, in 1978, Ron decided to go sightseeing near the Damascus Gate, in Jerusalem.

Walking along an ancient stone quarry, known to some as "the Calvary Escarpment," he was talking with a local authority about Roman antiquities. Without warning, Ron's left hand pointed to a site being used as a rubbish dump and said, "That's Jeremiah's Grotto and the Ark of the Covenant is in there. " Even though these words had come from his own mouth and his own hand had pointed, he had not consciously said or done these things.

So he returned home to the US, and began to research as to whether or not the Ark could be in that area. Therefore, the Ark of the Covenant most probably remained within the Babylonian siege wall. The first find that they uncovered were recesses cut into the cliff face, three 'bookshelf-like' cut outs. Further excavation revealed an altar stone protruding from the cliff face like a shelf. Human cells normally have 46 chromosomes. Evolution and Mathematics. Mathematics and especially the sub-field of statistics, is an area of study that has given the evolutionists trouble over the years. It is a primary focus area where the lie of evolution can be readily exposed. What statistics do is predict with great accuracy the odds that an event will occur. This predictive quality of statistics is called probability statistics or statistical variance. Insurance companies and the stock market as well as others use these methods to gauge or track what could likely or unlikely happen in the future.

The methods are accurate enough that these companies often rely on statistics to see how a stock will do in the future. With insurance companies they base whether they will give you insurance based on the odds that you stay alive in the next year. Take a look at the following table to get a flavor of where we are going when looking at statistics from a biblical perspective. Scientific Creationism, Dr. A Scientific Analysis of Genesis, Dr.

Apologetics Toolkit adapted from materials of Professor Paul Hahn of the University of St. Thomas, Houston, Texas Development of the Old Testament Canon The Old Testament (hereafter "OT") books are written. Rabbis translate the OT from Hebrew to Greek, a translation called the "Septuagint" (abbreviation: "LXX").

The LXX ultimately includes 46 books. Christians use the LXX as their scriptures. So Jewish rabbis meet at the Council of Jamniah and decide to include in their canon only 39 books, since only these can be found in Hebrew. Jerome translates the Bible from Hebrew and Greek into Latin (called the "Vulgate"). Luther translates the Bible from Hebrew and Greek to German. The Catholic Council of Trent reaffirms the canonicity of all 46 books. Development of the New Testament Canon The New Testament books are written, but during this same period other early Christian writings are produced--for example, the Didache (c.

Well, perhaps there's another view that we can examine by looking at Scripture. Remember, Jesus was a Jew and the Jewish Sabbath is Saturday; Christians are the ones who observe Sunday as Sabbath. Jesus made a direct, prophetic statement concerning His death: "FOR AS JONAH WAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE WHALE'S BELLY; SO SHALL THE SON OF MAN BE THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE HEART OF THE EARTH" (Matthew 12:40 KJV). So, Jesus may have been crucified Wednesday and arose on Saturday: Wednesday - 6pm - Burial & Night 1 Thursday - Day 1 & Night 2 Friday - Day 2 & Night 3 Saturday - Day 3 Jewish Sabbath* *The Jewish Sabbath is not so much a day as a period of time.

It starts at sundown Friday and ends at sundown Saturday.

Bruce tells about a Christian correspondent who was told by an agnostic friend that "apart from obscure references in Josephus and the like," there was no historical evidence for the life of Jesus outside the Bible.{1} This, he wrote to Bruce, had caused him "great concern and some little upset in [his] spiritual life.
