I have the right to lay it down, and I have the right to get it again. This precept I got from My Father. What Don bringing up "Christ rose Himself from the dead" has to do with aion or aionion I haven't a clue. However, let's go down his rabbit trail and see where it leads, shall we? I would be compelled to say, No. The bible never says that Christ roused or raised Himself from the dead. First, let us see if Jesus raised Himself or if God raised Jesus. Concerning Christ having the power as Don wrote, he only quoted verse 18 above.
I have the right to lay it [the soul] down, and I have the right to get it [the soul] again. Words in brackets [ ] added by me for clarity. Dunamis is missing in John Exousia is present in John Christ had the right or authority to get His soul again.
He had the right to get His soul psuche again. The soul is the result of the spirit and body coming together. It became non-functional. He had that right or authority to do so. He was roused through or by means of the glory of the Father as Romans states. The Scriptures are abundantly clear that it was God that raised Him from the dead.
There are only two ways I know of taking this verse. One is that the Father was speaking through Christ. John According to what Christ just said we can be sure of a couple of things:. One other way of looking at this would be that the Father was instrumental in raising Christ up after God roused Him out of the sleep of death.
When I go to bed at night the first thing that happens in the morning is that I am roused from sleep. My eyes open. I can remain lying in bed but once I raise myself I am no longer in a supine, horizontal position. I am either sitting on the edge of my bed or standing up. It could be that the God and Father of Christ gave Christ the power to be raised and that it was then that Christ raised Himself from the dead.
For all of us shall be presented at the dais of God Or why are you also scorning your brother? For all of us shall be presented at the dais of God. He could either go with the Sinaticus editor and use his reading of XY in the margin or use other main manuscripts. He chose the latter. If Knoch is wrong then the oldest manuscripts are wrong. The Father is not judging anyone directly but does so through the Son. Here all manuscripts agree that this is the dais of Christ.
It is just that Luke adds to the information lacking in the Matthew account. It doesn't contradict at all. Neither do all the other verses Don references above contradict But that is incorrect. It is not in the three oldest Greek manuscripts Knoch used, therefore, according to Knoch, he did not feel warranted in inserting it. And he is aware that he is telling the truth, that you, also, should be believing. He is coming with clouds, and every eye shall be seeing Him-those, also, who stab Him- and all the tribes of the land shall be grieving over Him.
So it doesn't really contradict Zechariah as Don would have us believe. It is just that his version is not in line with the Greek texts. It is just that, in the future, they will look at Him Whom they stabbed but John wrote of the event as if the soldier was presently piercing Christ. The 'Him' is clearly referring to Judas Iscariot, the 'H' should be lower case. The Son of Mankind is being given up! Ideal were it for Him if that man were not born! However, woe to that man through whom He is being given up!
For it is a necessity for snares to be coming. Moreover, woe to that man through whom the snare is coming! If this proper rendering causes other verses to be contradicted, according to Don, then there must be either an improper translation of the other verses in question or an improper understanding of the other verses in question. I believe the latter to be the case. Neither Mark nor Luke contradict each other nor do they contradict Matthew nor 2 Peter ,21 as Don suggested.
Whom they assassinate also, hanging Him on a pole. Why does Peter refer to the cross as a tree? Because he is quoting from O. Where it says that a person who is hanged from a tree is cursed by God. I'm sure that Christ did not carry a tree dendron with branches and leaves to His crucifixion. He carried something made of wood xulon to His crucifixion. Gegona is a form of ginomai and has the exact same Strongs number of I am the First and the Last He is saying Who is the First and the Last, Who became dead, and lives.
Of course Jesus is God. But in what sense is Jesus God? The One in verse 28 is said to be the only One not being subjected to Christ. That One is God. God is the One subjecting all humanity to Christ. Then Christ subjects Himself to that One. Compare Matthew with John If satan is a King, then how are there two chiefs? That doesn't make any sense.
The synonym archoon is used of the chiefs AV, rulers in Israel Matt. Nicodemus was such a chief John It is also used of the chief AV, ruler of the synagogue Luke It will also help us to note that Beezeboul is called the chief AV, prince of the demons Matt. Usually, indeed, the earthly and heavenly dignitaries are both included in the term, as in Romans ; 1 Corinthians ; Ephesians ; Colossians ; , No sovereignties, no chiefs, captains, or princes, with all their might, whether on earth or in heaven, will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord Rom.
All of these are connected with rule, and all will be gone when rule retires 1 Cor. Christ has ascended above all such, not only on earth, but in the heavens Eph.
Knoch, Unsearchable Riches, vol. Nicodemus his name, a chief of the Jews. There can be many chiefs, but there is only one King. Scripture is consistent with this John Now is the judging of this world. Now shall the Chief of this world be cast out. Why must a chief be a king? Who said that only kings sit on thrones? Who said a chief cannot sit on a throne or a place of authority? In Revelation the twenty-four elders each have a throne.
They each have positions of authority. Not that that makes it right, but I do find it interesting that Don does not go after those other translations. Jesus carries this title just as His Father does.
Since men carry over the truth into another language onlyso far as they grasp it themselves, no translation can be fully satisfactory. The compiler of this version, the late A. Knoch, was aware of his shortcomingsin this regard. To keep from emphasizing his personal views and traditionalerrors, he developed the concordant method of translation.
He was born in St. Louis, Missouri in America in and died in The first edition of the CLNT came out in He held a strong belief in the universal reconciliation of mankind and wrote extensively on this and other subjects. The doctrine of universal reconciliation depends more than any other teaching on the translation of key Greek words and phrases.

Yet every human undertaking, and every translation of the Scriptures, falls short of perfection. Our finite understanding, our faulty opinions as to the meaning of words in the ancient languages of inspiration cannot be fully evaded. To reduce this baneful influence to a minimum should be our earnest endeavor. We never reach the point where we cannot find new light and fresh treasures in divine revelation.
