I have a question about the Hebrew and Greek the Bible is written in. When I read a Strong's Concordance, it gives definitions of the Hebrew and Greek. Who decides the authoritativeness of the definitions? I have always wonder about this! Are there ancient Hebrew and Greek instruction manuals that Luther or Tyndale used and the men that came in the centuries before them used? Or was the meaning of the Hebrew and Greek passed down from teacher to student? What is the most authoritative instruction in Biblical Greek and Hebrew? I know the history of Bible translations, the difference between Byzantine and Alexandrian, but I have never read nor can I find an answer to this question. God bless your ministry!

I understand that the sacrificial system in the Old Testament shows us our position before God (apart from Christ) and much of the symbolizm in the offerings that Jesus fulfilled, but what was the purpose of the priests being commanded at times and allowed at times to eat portions of the offerings and only in a holy place? It seems that when the systems was running properly that would be a lot of food. How much if any were they allowed to take home and what did they do with all those skins? Also can you recommend a commentary that explains how this system operated ( how many animals were they sacrificing and what did they do with all the blood etc. ) and what it symbolized in more depth.

The gospels are the story of Jesus life, but from 4 different point of views, right?

I have always been in the "pre-trib camp" and I know Pastor Mark seems to be from his sermons, but I have a question about a couple passages in Matthew. Do the following passages give any weight to a post-trib belief? Matthew: 13:30 "let them both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvestors; First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into the barn." verses 38-43 explains it more, but it seems to indicate a mutual harvest of weeds and wheat. My only explanation is this is talking about the end of the tribulation. What is your take on the passage?

For many years, I attended a United Pentecostal Church with very strict guidelines. In addition, they believe to be saved you HAVE to follow ACT 2:38 to the tee with the evidence of speaking in tongues with without, you could not be saved. Also, their doctrine is so strict that it is very hard to get away from it and feel OK with anything else. I try so hard to do everything right and know I am not in any way perfect. It seems this background has had some long term negative effects on my life. What can I do to get around this. I pay tithe and offerings, but I am so sad in my heart about life life. I have lost it all and cannot get my arms around anytihng. Why has this happened to me, and what can I do? I just seeem to be depressed and can not seem to find the joy people talk about. I fear I will never be able to go to heaven no matter how hard I try.

I do not mean to be legalistic, but what do you think should be the response of a Christian woman whose husband (who is not a believer) has directly said he does not want any of the family’s money going to the church? Should she plead with her husband to be able to give, sneak and give behind his back, or simply submit to her husband's wishes? I know wives should submit to their husband’s authority unless they are asking her to do something immoral, illegal or wrong, but I do not know if “not giving” would fall in that category. Thank you.
