    And what text did Jesus teach from?

    I can choose what I respond to, thank you very much.

    Also, if you haven't noticed, TOL has been being upgraded for the past couple of days, so any points I would have made would have been lost anyways.

    Since you INSIST I reply to you, Here is my response.

    Read this: http://www.ministrysamples.org/excer...AL-SAYING.HTML

    Now, Why do you say that Jesus read from the Torah, when the Septuagint would have been far easier to access?

    Why does it matter. Did Jesus teach is to not read other texts than the Septuagint?

    Actually, when the first Five books of The OT: The Law or The Torah, were translated from ancient Hebrew into ancient Greek, they were known as The Septuagint.

    Later, when the other books of the OT were translated into said ancient Greek, they also became part of, and known as The Septuagint.

    Rom. 5:6-8.

    Actually, The Septuagint introduced various changes and new words not used in the Hebrew text.

    Part of that was due to why The Septuagint came into being to begin with: over time, with Israel's various rebellions, intermarryings into other cultures, together with their being conquered by other cultures *, and so on, few Israelites eventually spoke and or read Hebrew.

    And with the Greek conquest of many, including the Israelites, ancient or Koine Greek became the predominant language.

    With its own, and even new words - for newer developments in man's progress: just like the word "internet" and the later technology it represents, is a word not known by prior generations of English speakers.

    Or just as, with the invention of the personal computer, the word "mouse" took on one more meaning: one not known by prior generations of English speakers.

    Anway, eventually, a move arose for an OT that all might better understand upon hearing its reading.

    Which eventually resulted in, The Septuagint.

    Rom. 5:6-8

    _______________

    * Which is why one reads of the many languages spoken by different Israelites long since scattered abroad to different parts of that ancient world...

    Acts 2:5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 2:6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

    2:7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

    2:8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

    2:9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 2:10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 2:11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

    Sort of a "universal translator" effect.

    John 14:9-11
    9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.
    Philippians 2:5-8
    5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!
    John 10:30-36
    30 I and the Father are one.” 31 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?” 33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods” ’? 35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?

    The people in heaven are called (elohiym / gods.) Christ himself said he was a god from heaven.

    Christ is quoting Psalm 82:6
    The word there is originally "elohiym."


    Psalm 82:6
    “I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’
