THINKING OUT LOUD WITH MY FINGERS

PARTS OF THE BRAIN

                     THINKING OUTLOUD

The Study Guides in the >> Christology Series << are Supported by Scriptures having a Minimum of 2 Explanatory Reference Scriptures for each Exegetical or Thesis Statement, which is a Critical Examination of the Scriptures, in an Exposition. It is not an Interpretation of the Scriptures.

Thinking Out Loud With My Fingers

This Study Guide will Host articles that I will write regarding my own Observations, Studies, Research, Inquiries and Responses to questions in addition to the Exegetical Study Guides which must adhere to a definite criteria of two or more Scriptures viz,  >> Ask The Oracles << | >> The Zenith Oracle <<  and the other Scriptural Thematic Topic Study Guides. This Study Guide was a spin off of the article >> A Christian Or A Disciple of JESUS CHRIST? << Some articles may be without actual Scriptures or may have Scriptures but I might like to Elaborate on a side thought and write a Comment or express an opinion for which I may not find sufficient Scriptural basis which means my usual 2 or more Scriptures. In some cases topics may be Scripturally sound with the initial article criteria but I want to add a secondary article here because I want to add information for Contrast, Scientific or other information which does not belong with the articles of Exegesis.

This Study Articles will contain my observations and insight of the Realities of the Worlds/Kingdoms on the Planet of Adamic Souls on Earth and those who are “Called Out” of Earth’s Destructive Cycle such as depicted in the article – >> Man’s Aversion to Holiness << located in this Study Guide. It will contain excerpts from other Study Guides in the Christology Series Study Program and the multifaceted points of view such as the Article in used as a >> Reference<< which is mostly secular support information for the Needs of Man which is Contrasted with the Spiritual Needs of Man. As mentioned throughout the >> Christology Series, << this Study Guide will contain referral links to specific articles and Study Guides containing 10 or more articles with 100 + Scriptures regarding specific topics. The Study Guide Article link  >> Christology Series << is a summary overview of the Study Guides in the entire Series with links to the respective Study Guide.

Emblems

Some of the articles are written as an >> Emblem. <<  Emblems are examples, representations and/or pictures of Biblical Individuals, Personæ, Incidents, Scenarios and Situations which have adequate Scripture(s) but I want to Elaborate by adding additional Commentary. See the link above for more information and examples of Emblems.

In some instances a Topic may have Scripture(s) that may Allude to a Topic but there may not be an exact wording, Descriptive Reference Point or the wording can have more than one or different meanings and I choose to offer my opinion.

Some Scriptures may be Emblematic, which may be a Foreshadow; Representation; Symbol; Picture; Type, Archetype; Shadow; Foreshadow; or >>  Parable, << or a depiction of a Miracle that is performed. One  example is the very famous parting of the Red Sea with Moses and the Children of Israel during the >> Mosaic Dispensation << as the >> Prophet/Shepherd << and the Jews/Israel as his Flock/Church as a picture/Prophecy of JESUS CHRIST as the >> Prophet/Shepherd << and the Jews and Gentiles as His >> Flock/Church << and a Emblematic picture/representation of the current Rite of Baptism of Disciple/Saints/Believers. All were Foreshadowed {Prophecy) in the >>  Old Testament << and were fulfilled in Christ in the >> New Testament. <<

Fast forward to the >> New Testament << and Jesus is witnessed telling His Disciples, and Apostles (his friends) and the Scribes, Sadducees and Pharisees, (most were His enemies) that Moses had spoken of Him as the Prophet who GOD would raise up among them who would be like himself and that Moses had told them they must listen to Him. The Scriptures are found in Study Guide articles regarding >> Mosaic Dispensation. <<

Deuteronomy 18:15-19

15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

16 According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.

17 And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.

18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

John 5:46  For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.

This Study Guide will also be host to opinionated articles to avoid the Semblance of “Private Interpretation” of Scripture in the Scriptural Study Guides. Although this Study Guide may not have 2 or more Scriptures the information is Scripturally based and is written in the Spirit of the Scriptures which means there are Scriptures that point to the Content or Context. Any articles or responses without 2 or more referencing Scriptures will be directed here as Personal or Tentative Opinions or Thoughts. Other current and newly developed Study Guides will be Scriptural Commentary.

This Study Guide will also contain personal insight to my Comments about particular BIBLICAL TOPICS of interest.  It will be free style writing which will differ from the SCRIPTURAL RIGIDITY which is RIGHTLY NECESSITATED in the other articles in the >> CHRISTOLOGY SERIES. << 

The Articles in this Blog will be presented as my Personal Responses; Thoughts; Speculations; Terms; Phrases and Subjects of a Suppositional Nature. They will include Topics that may or may not have ACTUAL SCRIPTURAL DOCUMENTATION such as TOPICS or DETAILS that are ALLUDED to but do not have ACTUAL and EXACT SCRIPTURE to CONFIRM or AFFIRM a Supposition although it may appear to be a  PRACTICAL or LOGICAL PROGRESSION of THOUGHT.  If I can not find at least two (2) corresponding Scriptures for an article or response to an Inquiry, it will fall into this category.

I will write these Articles as a Source of Spiritual Edification to Encourage continual SPIRITUAL GROWTH for myself and for others who would care to join me.

Articles will consist of  SPIRITUAL MEDITATIONS and WRITING EXERCISES that are evoked from the Exegesis of the SCRIPTURES which require additional PRAYER, THOUGHT and or RESEARCH.

Some examples will be questions regarding Jewish Religious and Social Customs, Practices of the Law which were prevalent before and during the TIME CHRIST JESUS was living on the EARTH, which could Affect Characters, Situations, and/or Outcomes. 

An example of such a question would be –  “Was there a Symbolic Act or Reason for CHRIST washing the feet of HIS DISCIPLES/APOSTLES? 

There are logical reasons that could be ascertained from social customs, geographic area or previous Scriptures where such acts are alluded to.  There are practical reasons such as it was HIS demonstration of Humility as Christ took on the role as a servant of the lowest caste providing the simple custom  of the tradition of hospitality. I lean towards the demonstration of Humility but Christ does not follow with much dialogue regarding the act. He appears to allude to Humility when speaking to His Disciples and stresses the importance possibly because the Disciples had been debating who should be the greatest among them.  It seems it was the same Sin which had affected the parents of Mankind – Pride – which was affecting the Disciples of Christ. I will post an article on my thoughts titled “Foot Washing” in this Study Guide at a Future time. To my knowledge there was only one other Scripture that alluded to foot washing but it was an act of Hospitality and Tradition. I will also post an article on Humility in the >> Divinity of Christ. <<

Joh 13:3  Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; 

Joh 13:4  He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. 

Joh 13:5  After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. 

John 13:12
So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
John 13:14
If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.

Luk 7:44  And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. 

CHRIST spoke in >> PARABLES <<utilizing analogies about NATURE, SHEPHERDING, HUSBANDRY; FARMING and FISHING to Elevate the MINDS of HIS listeners.  HE used everyday occurrences to further the absorption of the  SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES of the GOSPEL of the KINGDOM of GOD/HEAVEN. See the Study Article – >> PARABLES <<

This Blog will expand on topics in the same manner by drawing semblances of the past, present, and future.

OTHER SOURCES

In addition, there are RELIGIOUS BOOKS of the BIBLE that are not included in Canon which are only 66 BOOKS of the Christian Holy Bible, see the Study Guides for >> HOLY BIBLE, #1 << | >>BIBLE #2 << | >> BIBLE #3 << such as the >> Apocrypha Books of the Bible << and other writings such as the BOOKS of ENOCH, although he is spoken of and alluded to in the >> OLD TESTAMENT << and in the >> NEW TESTAMENT << of the BIBLE. There is also the Ethiopic Holy Scriptures which is the most complete Bible in the History of Judaism and Christianity. There are also other SCROLLS and PARCHMENTS which have been discovered since the compilation of what is today called the Fragments of the HOLY BIBLE such as the Books of Enoch or >> the Apocryphal Books of the Bible.<<  Of course all sources of information will be cited in each article.

Genesis 5:24

And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Luk_3:37  Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan,

Heb_11:5  By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

Jud_1:14  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,

None of the Study Guide Articles would create any Earth Shattering difference in Christianity as we View it today.  There are just a few things that are mentioned or some questions that are asked with no obvious or relevant explanation and I wonder about it because I Know nothing about CHRIST or anything He said or did was irrelevant or “just” so. 

If this conveys the idea that I believe every single Word CHRIST spoke has some Deep Thought penetrating Spiritual Significance, you are absolutely Right! He spoke in Parables for a Reason.

In addition, I believe everything written in the BIBLE that might Evoke a question has a CORRESPONDING response.  It may take hours, days, or years to find it or we could discover it while researching another completely different TOPIC, which is why Bible Study is so Interesting, Edifying, Spiritually Uplifting and Rewarding for me.

There will probably be instances where a Topic might start here in the THINKING OUTLOUD Study Guide but later, as relevant information and Research Develops, it may be moved to another Blog due to new SCRIPTURAL Revelation within the Bible.  In such cases a notification  e-mail will be sent to Registered Readers with Links pointing to the article’s new category and or Study Guide.
