Featured Term (selected at random:
An Israelite aide to Moses. During a battle with the Amalekites, the Israelites fought bravely so long as Moses stood on the hilltop holding aloft the staff of God. But when his arms tired and the staff wavered, the efforts of his men waned. So Aaron, his brother, and Hur seated Moses on a stone to rest him, and supported his arms to that the staff remained high and steady (Exodus 17:10-12). The battle ended triumphantly for the Israelites. Further evidence of confidence in Hur: when Yahweh summoned Moses to climb the mountain to receive the law and the commandments, Moses left instructions that during his absence conflicts were to be brought to Aaron and Hur for settlement (Exodus 14:14).

Surely you aren’t saying that it’s not in the Bible that the Catholics compiled and gave to the world, are you?
“Surely you arent saying that its not in the Bible that the Catholics compiled and gave to the world, are you?”
2/3 of Scripture was written to Israel and all that before Rome came on the scene.
1/3 of scripture has been examined and placed in an official canon of Scripture by many groups. Later groups corrected errors Rome made.
In this instance, Hebrews are the source before Christianity came along.
There was no Bible for Israel. There was no Bible even when the New Testament was written.
Lies are spread about how the Catholic Church canon of Scripture was formed. If it is inspired by the Holy Spirit, how can it be in error?
BTW, what was the first Bible printed by the Gutenberg press?
Written in Latin, the Gutenberg Bible is an edition of the Vulgate, printed by Johannes Gutenberg, in Mainz, Germany, in the 1450s. Forty-eight copies, or substantial portions of copies, survive, and they are considered to be among the most valuable books in the world, even though no complete copy has been sold since 1978. The 36-line Bible, believed to be the second printed version of the Bible, is also sometimes referred to as a Gutenberg Bible, but is likely the work of another printer.
“There was no Bible for Israel. There was no Bible even when the New Testament was written.”
All scrolls were existing, copies collected iand cherished and read from as part of worship. Later, technology would make it possible to collect them into a new thing called a book.
“Lies are spread about how the Catholic Church canon of Scripture was formed. If it is inspired by the Holy Spirit, how can it be in error?”
The Authors and what they wrote were inspired. Men are guided by God. Having spent an entire semester in seminary going through original sources on this topic, I can assure you it wasn’t always unanimous or pretty. Errors were later purged.
Glory to Him alone.
