Paul defined the wall.
Acts 21 proves that the Middle Wall of Partition existed in the temple.
Are you agreeing with heir and STP that the Middle Wall of Partition was not an actual wall in the temple?
No matter how hard you plug your ears to the facts, they are still the facts. The middle wall of partition was handwritten.
Says the admitted, on record, Jew hater, anti-Semite, and sodomite, weasel Craigie.Why would Paul bring up the wall, then say "EVEN the law of commandments contained in ordinances", if the wall was the law of commandments contained in ordinances.
That makes no sense.
Philippians 2:8 (KJV)
Nice try, but simple English 101 proves you wrong again.
(Phil 2:8 KJV) And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
As we see above, the word "death" appears before the word "even", and after the word "even". Thus the word "even" in Phil 2:8 is used to emphasize what kind of death.
Paul didn't say "The middle wall of partition, even the middle wall of partition that was the law of commandments contained in ordinances"
Paul was making a list, then said "even" the law of commandments contained in ordinances, after the first two things on his list.
Also, Paul listed enmity between the wall and the ordinances. In Phil 2:8, there is no other item between "obedient unto death" and "death of the cross".
Not difficult. The wall, the enmity, the ordinances, all the same thing.
Exactly what I expected from you.
It's your standard response when you can't defend your premise.
No matter how hard you and heir try, Paul was referencing the actual wall that was in the temple.
Paul was making a point that the Jews were no longer able to keep the Gentiles from having the same access to God that the Jews did.
You really should do a study on the Inner Court, what took place there, and who was allowed in.
