You mention the phrase "Truly I say unto you" in the first line or so. So there is at least one unpartnered Truly in the post.

you are absolutely right. the 8th hour of the 7th of may 2015 does indeed approach with haste. it is three minutes away as i type.

the abovetopsecret clock says its the 7th hour, but my computer says 8.


Perhaps you need to understand the way they kept time back then.

The third hour of the day corresponds to 9 AM.

Counting Jewish hours


The hour has a special meaning in Jewish law. "The third hour of the day" doesn't mean 3:00 a.m., or three sixty-minute hours after sunrise. Rather, an hour in halacha is calculated by taking the total time of daylight of a particular day, from sunrise until sunset,1 and dividing it into twelve equal parts. A halachic hour is thus known as a sha'ah zemanit, or proportional hour, and varies by the season and even by the day.


Right now, I can see the stars and because it is evening, it is now day.

Jewish time...again

In Jewish time, the day begins with the onset of night (the appearance of the stars) followed by the morning (which technically begins with the appearance of the North Star). According to some Jewish teachers, night and morning begin with sunset and sunrise respectively. For that is how the Torah describes it: “And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.”

I very much doubt whether any radical Muslim really believes that the spiritually dead will live through hearing and believing in the voice of Christ, which is the topic of this thread.
But then I suspect you of being yet one more person responding to the title without bothering to read the thread itself.
The site seems full of them today, all comparatively new to the boards.

Jesus said "let the dead bury their dead, pick up your cross and follow me".

When they do hear, they will live again.



Son of Man, can these dry bones live again?

Most of the time it was verily verily but modern erred translations make it truly truly. Learn the differences in the meanings of the two words and you will see that verily verily is the correct preserved translation.

There is no difference between the two words.
Any dictionary will give you "truly" as the meaning of the word "verily".
Except that "verily" is an Elizabethan word which has become obsolete in modern usage, and modern translations rightly use a word which forms part of modern language.

Thank you. The last one went up to 10, the number of completeness. Of course 70 would combine the two.

I'm afraid now to give stars, that might throw it off.

Truly, verily. Same words, I agree.

You could have used a Bible version that said "truthfully, I say to you" and it would be exactly the same.

Verily comes from veritas, which is Latin for truth.

Yes, the actual wording of the title came down to the policy of making the RSV my preferred quoting translation.
That is why I went for "born anew" in the last thread.
(P.S. The other poster was confused between stars and flags. Adding stars would not upset the number he was looking at).
(P.P.S) I see the number of flags is now 8, the number of Christ.

And now it is 9, the full number of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Ah, someone else responding to the title alone.
In the OP itself, one discovers that the title is a quotation, which the OP examines.



ah, but the title was the most accurate part of your op. 99% of your thread is open to interpretation according to whatever beliefs you hold dear. but no matter when you look at it or why, the hour, an hour, some hour out of the 24 that each day brings us will always be coming.

Call upon your gods
Beg for them to help you
Call upon your gods
Religion has left you
Got a final hour
Cross the final line
Life will end
But there is no end to time...

Only to someone with no faith.

But of course, someday, we'll all find out who's right and who's wrong - theist or atheist. And if you're right ... oh well! Kind of hard for you to say, "I told you so," as a dead slab of meat. If we're right ... well ... that'll be between you and God.


i suppose it will be much easier for you to spend the rest of eternity telling everyone "i was wrong" between mouthfuls of delicious hemoglobin after your transformation into one of the undead. but that doesnt compel you to hang garlic over your doors and windows at night.


i am not saying you are wrong, im just saying...better safe than sorry.

Are you implying you hang garlic over your door?

You need salt and a silver bullet too, and don't forget your umbrella, Janet.

I think I know too much..I just referenced the Rocky Horror Picture Show in a religious thread.

Sorry Disraeli, I did not mean to go off topic.

Ah, now you shame me by implying I only have faith out of fear.

Tsk, tsk.

There's no fear of anything on this end despite what you may think.
