‘…There Are Three That Testify…’ (1 John 5:7-8 Explained)

The purpose of this explanation of Holy Scripture, is to show how both 1 John 5:7 and 5:8 do not speak of the man made doctrine known as the ‘trinity’.

Rather, verse 7 speaks of heaven and how God, Christ, and God’s Holy Spirit are unified (Christ serves God, the Holy Spirit comes from God – these do God’s will).

And verse 8 speaks of earth and how a successful baptism by believing in Christ is so important, and is thus to be sought after rather than the approval of men.

The Formula Of Baptism Explained – (Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 2:38)

This explanation will explain the risen King Messiah’s (Christ’s) instructions for baptism verse by verse, and also break down the formula line by line.

Then what it means to be baptised in the name of the Lord ‘Jesus Christ’ (ref. Acts 2:38), will also be explained.

The Gift Of Tongues Scripturally Defined

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.

Christ [Became] A High Priest – (Hebrews 2:17)

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

Loving Enemies, Discipline, Wrath, and Overcoming.

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.

‘Why Is The New Testament Written In Greek And Not Hebrew?’

Question: ‘If the Old Testament is written in Hebrew, why is the New Testament written in Greek and not Hebrew?’

Hebrew scribes (such as the apostle Paul) whom had to communicate the good news of everlasting life by believing in Messiah (Christ) not only to to Israel, but to the world outside of Israel.

The ‘suffering servant’ is a Man, Given As A Covenant For The Nation (Isaiah 42:6, 49:8)

Another two fantastic verses which show us that the servant whom G-d sent is one man (Messiah/Christ), who was given as a covenant for the nation (many people) – are Isaiah 42:6, 49:8).

‘Propitiation’: Intercession, Not Human Sacrifice (1 John 2:2, Isaiah 53:12)

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)

or even,

• ‘He is the propitiation for our sins…’ (1 John 2:2 ESV)

– are figurative and (respectfully) poetic in nature.

May it be fruitful.
