Ellicott’s Commentary for English Readers 19 Is the seed yet in the barn? The term rendered in the Authorised Version “seed” does not imply grain for sowing, but grain for provision. The fruit harvest was as defective as that of cereals, having been cut off by the hail. The prospect was thus one of deepest gloom. But human helplessness is God’s opportunity. He pledges His word even at this crisis by the mouth of Haggai, “From this day I will bless.
Is there any of your poor crop still left in your granaries? Is it not already expended? The corn crop is mentioned first, then the fruit harvest.
It is a book written by an ordained Disciples of Christ minister, Rev. This all came into being when he saw a Victoria Secrets campaign focused on a girls self-esteem. This did not sit right to Rev. He couldn’t see how a pair of underwear was going to enhance a girl’s self-esteem. It lead him to write an open letter to the company.
Then the letter went viral.
This type of fig tree is the one referred to as “the people’s tree,” meaning anyone may help themselves to the fruit. The figs on the tree mature in June. However, in early spring, there are buds (which later turn into mature figs) on the tree.
If you read the scriptures, you will find that one of the most common symbols used for the Jewish people in the Bible is a fig tree. This happens during the last week of Jesus’ life, as he is completing his teaching and ministry. But this time, he should have been seeing results among the Jewish people. They should have been able to recognize him as their Messiah. But they had not. So Jesus passes this fig tree, and after showing that there is no fruit on it, he curses it – actually judges it.
He is showing his disciples that by now Israel the Jews should have been producing “fruit” in following him, but they were not. So just as suddenly as this fig tree a symbol of Israel would dry up and be gone, so Israel would suddenly disppear as a nation. By 70 AD, the temple would be destroyed and the people exiled from the land for nearly years. Jesus would refer back to the incident the very next day.
And warns that “this generation shall not pass away until all these things are fulfilled. So to understand the incident with the fig tree, you had to keep reading a couple more chapters to where Jesus explains it.

This is a preliminary article to provide an immediate response to the recent publication and promotion of the Coptic Pseudo-Gospel of Judas. This article will be updated by a more comprehensive treatment of the topic in a few months when more material is available. This document, they stated, would be published in an English translation Kasser et al. In this one, we are told, Judas Iscariot, the betrayer of Jesus in the canonical Gospels, is seen as the hero and one who was given more revelation and played a more significant part than any of the other apostles.
In this account, Judas hands Jesus over to the Jewish authorities only because Jesus Himself had actually instructed him to, rather than because of his greed as portrayed in the canonical Gospel accounts Luke Is this in fact the case? Does the Gospel of Judas really undermine and invalidate the traditional Gospel account of the betrayal and crucifixion of Christ?
Should this document cause Christians to re-evaluate their faith, and does this document indeed give any valuable insight into the relationship between Christ and Judas Iscariot? This preliminary article is intended to provide some answers to these immediate questions, and determine whether the Gospel of Judas does indeed provide Christians with any cause for concern.
The History of the Gospel of Judas In actual fact, knowledge that there was a document called the Gospel of Judas and of its basic content has always been known. The early Christian writer Irenaeus mentioned it in his work Against Heresies, in which he attacked the various unbiblical doctrines which were being taught by various groups in his time.

Others allege that the Bible simply does not speak to this matter. Ross, see Van Bebber and Taylor The Basic Issue If it is true that the Bible is completely silent on this topic, then certainly we ought not to make an issue of it. But, is the Bible silent regarding the age of the earth and the human race? We pose these questions for reflection: Do the Scriptures contain chronological data which allow the careful student to arrive at a relatively reliable estimate as to the antiquity of the human race?
Does the Bible teach that the earth and mankind were created in the same week? If these questions can be answered affirmatively—and we are confident they can—then the testimony of inspiration must be respected.

Olive oil and Mediterranean cuisine The olive tree, Olea europaea, has been cultivated for olive oil , fine wood, olive leaf , and the olive fruit. Semiripe or turning-colour olives are picked at the beginning of the ripening cycle, when the colour has begun to change from green to multicolour shades of red to brown. Only the skin is coloured, as the flesh of the fruit lacks pigmentation at this stage, unlike that of ripe olives.

Ahmet Hergune was killed during the conflict between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots in , but his body remained undiscovered for decades. It was eventually discovered because the tree which grew from him was unusual for the area. Incredibly, the dead man had been taken into a cave with two others and both of them had been killed by dynamite that was then thrown in after them. Yet the dynamite also blew a hole in the side of the cave, allowing light to flood into the darkened interior which in turn allowed the fig tree to grow from the man’s body.
Up to , people were displaced in the conflict.
