  1. Answer: The camel through the eye of a needle parable was given by Jesus in 30 A.D. just a short time before his final Passover and death. His somewhat humorous comparison is mentioned in three of the four gospel accounts (Matthew 19:23 - 26, Mark 10:23 - 27, Luke 18:24 - 27). The context of the camel parable is that a rich young man approached ...

  2. Matthew 3:4. And the same John — The following description of John is added, that it might appear he did not live in obscurity, but was sufficiently known to all: had his raiment of camel’s hair — Not, as some have supposed, a camel’s skin, raw and undressed, but a kind of sackcloth, coarse and rough, made of the raw long hair of camels, and not of their fine and soft hair, dressed and ...

    Tel Aviv University archaeologists Lidar Sapir-Hen and Erez Ben-Yosef, who have been exploring ancient Aravah Valley copper mines between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, decided to take a crack at the camel question. The camel question is not a new one, and they are not the first to dispute the Bible’s historical accounts of camels. Sapir-Hen and Ben...

    The Aravah Valley was an important place in the economy of the Middle East by the time of King Solomon, and trade routes naturally traversed the area. The copper mines of the valley are thought to have been on trade routes between the Arabian Peninsula and the settled lands nearer the Mediterranean. Camels would probably have been better able to me...

    “The introduction of the camel to our region was a very important economic and social development,” Ben-Yosef says. “By analyzing archaeological evidence from the copper production sites of the Aravah Valley, we were able to estimate the date of this event in terms of decades rather than centuries.” Because carbon-dated camel bones abruptly appear ...

    In examining the challenge based on these copper-mined carbon dates, we need to consider both the calibration of the technique and the historical context of the claims. Clearly the AFTAU assumes the Bible’s history is neither historically accurate nor verifiable. In this instance, they are defining “verifiable” as that which can be assigned a scien...

    Yet even beyond the technical issues with the dating methods, could there be other reasons that might allow for the presence of domestic camels in the herds of Abraham while they were not yet a prominent feature between the Dead Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba? A look at the map should make the answer clear. There is no reason to assume that the abrupt a...

    When quizzing the past for its historical secrets, historians must rely on written accounts recorded by people who were there. So-called “higher critics” of the Bible, however, have since the 19th century claimed that the history of the Old Testament was written centuries after the writers claim to have written down God’s Word under His inspiration...

  4. It comes out here, incidentally, as it was reasonable to infer from the number of camels, that Abraham's steward had a retinue of servants with him. The crowning act of an Eastern reception is the presenting of food. But the faithful servant must deliver his message before partaking of the friendly meal. Verse 34-49 The servant's errand is told.

  5. With this answer, Jesus interpreted the meaning of the word uncleanness in Deuteronomy 24:1, showing that divorce (and the freedom to remarry) was only permitted in the case of sexual immorality. i. The ancient Greek word for sexual immorality is porneia. It is a broad word and it covers a wide span of sexual impropriety.

  6. John the Baptist After a 430 years of silence since the prophet Malachi, the Lord raised up a new prophet to restore Israel back to the right path. As prophesied, John came “in the spirit and power of Elias” (Luke 1:17). By his life style and clothing, John pointed the people to the messages of the ancient prophets.
