Exodus 21:7-11: How To View And Explain The Statute For A Slave Wife.

Exodus 21:7-11 provides instruction with regard to a father selling his daughter to another Israelite to be a slave/servant, with a view to marriage.

Ultimately from reviewing this commandment and the fuller scope of Holy Scripture that will accompany it, we will find that;

a) The Law of Moses is to be observed, however,
b) Halakhah (Jewish Law: oral and the written) states that Jews/Israelites are to abide by local laws in general, and this mixed place typically forbids multiple wives (poligomy), which this passage lightly touches upon.
c) Holy Scripture encourages believers to be content with one wife (1 Timothy 3:2).
d) Divine halakhah states divorce is only acceptable in the event of sexual immorality (Matthew 5:31-32).
e) The Tanakh (Old Testament) and New Testemant (Brit Chadasha) are thus in agreement.

How Prayer Actually Works: ‘…ask for anything in my name, and I will do it.’ (John 14:13-14, 14:16 Explained)

These two verses are being highlighted to try to explain the basics of how prayer Actually works.

From this we will see how here is no ‘trinity’ implied in the verses, by explaining two main facts, which briefly are;

A) Do we ask Christ for things in prayer?

No. The correct translation for these two verses in this instance is the KJV, which does not instruct any such thing.

B) What does it mean when it says Christ ‘will do it’ in both verses?

After we read John 14:16 with our two subject verses, we see that one of Christ’s duties is to pray to the Father – and this is consistent with other verses such as Isaiah 53:12 and Romans 8:34 which both state Christ ‘intercedes’ for people to G-d.

This is what Christ does as high priest in the order of Melchizadek (Psalm 110:4, Hebrews 5:10);

A person prays to G-d in Christ’s name (in honor/recognition of), and then Christ intercedes on our behalf with G-d.
