This explanation of Holy Scripture intends to share exactly what the miraculous gift of tongues was; a gift the original early believers were gifted with, to allow the sharing of the gospel with people who spoke other foreign languages.
This explanation of Holy Scripture further demonstrates the connection between Christ in the Psalms where it is said that Christ ‘hated wickedness but loved righteousness’ and was therefore then ‘annointed’ as priest in the order of Melchizadek after being raised from the dead ref./par. Psalm 45:7, 110:4);
Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
Hebrews 2:17 ESV

Exploring how the view of the relatively righteous living on the earth during the times of the Old Testament (Tanakh), was the same as those living in the times of the New Testament (Brit Chadasha) – with regards to blessing enemies, instead of cursing them.
The difference between discipline and wrath is briefly looked at also.
This explanation aims to show how God’s good commandments forbid human sacrifices (ref. Deuteronomy 23:16, Ezekiel 18:20), and thus 1 John 2:2 (or any other verse for that matter) is in no way saying that Christ (Messiah) was a literal human sacrifice;
He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.
1 John 2:2 ESV
This explanation aims to share both contextually and linguistically.
We will find that the word ‘propitiation’ here in 1 John 2:2, refers to Messiah (Christ) praying to G-d for transgressors (ref. Isaiah 53:12), and does not allude to him being a literal blood sacrifice.
Further, the rule and way of interpretation found within this article, will assist a person in understanding that verses which read along the lines of;
• ‘…the blood of Jesus Christ makes us clean…’ (ref. 1 John 1:7),
• ‘…he was wounded for our transgressions…’ (ref. Isaiah 53:5)
• ‘He is the propitiation for our sins…’ (1 John 2:2 ESV)
– are figurative and (respectfully) poetic in nature.
