What does the Bible mean when it says…?

What does the Bible mean when it says…?

We noticed you have been spending a great deal of time in your Bibles lately and with that has come a whole slew of great questions. In today’s episode, Cameron and Dr. J focus solely on the growing question queue and tackle the questions you have been asking. What that also means is that they need more questions for future episodes. So, if you have submitted a question but haven’t heard it addressed yet, then this might be the episode you’ve been waiting for.

05:12 — We read in Genesis 4:14, “Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.” So Cain was concerned whoever found him would kill him, but who would kill him? His parents, other siblings not recorded, nephews or nieces, or did God create other families that were not recorded?

08:45 — We read in 1 Corinthians 13:8, “Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.” I don’t understand what this means where it says “they will cease,” “they will be stilled,” “it will pass away.” What does this mean?

12:08 — I know Isaac was blind when Jacob fooled him, but how could he have been fooled by goat’s hair on his arm? Goat’s hair must feel much different than human arm hair. Why didn’t God speak to him at that moment?

17:18 — We read in Job 2:1, “On another day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord , and Satan also came with them to present himself before him.” So like a flock of angels go to the Lord and Satan just slips in with them? Are they in heaven? Why wouldn’t they reject his presence with them? Do we even know how this happened? Why in the world would Satan want to go before the Lord?

21:55 — In one of my Bible plans it said it was winter, I’m curious- is it cold and snowy? How did they know it was winter?? Spring, summer, & fall… did their seasons show weather?

25:23 — Can you talk about the last being first and the first being last? I just read the parable on Matthew and I still don’t understand it. The men who started work at 5:00 got paid the same wage as those who started in the morning. I’ve heard it said the last shall be first and the first shall be last, but I don’t understand the meaning.
