Section Bond to BYZ (the other sections → key00.htm)
- Galatians 3:28, “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free”. → ega018.htm
- On the bondwoman (slave-woman) and the freewoman of Galatians 4 (and Genesis 21), and the bondage of Galatians 4:21 and 5:1. → eca086.htm – eaa027.htm
- In the Bible, the words “bond” and “bondage” often refer to slavery or to imprisonment – but not always. Even marriage is sometimes called “bond”, in the meaning that the husband and the wife are joined together through a binding covenant.
- The article eoa167.htm considers certain scriptures where it appears that the apostles Paul and Peter actually referred to the “marriage bond” and not to the bond of slavery as many bible-translations make it seem.
- The Jews divide the books of the Old Testament into three sections, Torah, Neviim and Kethuvim, whence the acronym TNK and the word Tanakh. → eca016.htm, appendix
- Books in Revelation 20:12 – “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” → eta068.htm
- The Feast of Booths (Tents, Tabernacles) was seven days long. → exa056.htm
- The seventh and last day of the Feast of Booths was seen as the “great” day of the feast. → exa067.htm
- On the “Assembly on the Eighth Day” which followed the Feast of Booths. → exa076.htm
- Look also under the heading “High days”.
Born again – On being “born again” (John 3:3, Titus 3:5, 1 Peter 1:3, and more). → eba057.htm
Bottle, bottles (a misleading word in some bible-translations)
- Old Testament: One popularly used bible-version has “bottles” in 23 OT passages. The Hebrew word in question is mostly chemeth, nebel or nod, in Job 32:19 owb, all referring to wineskins, waterskins. In Jeremiah 19:1 and 10, the Hebrew text has baqbuk which refers to a clay pot.
- Some bible-versions have “bottle” in Hosea 7:5. The Hebrew text has chemah which meant “fury”. Many English translations interpret chemah in that verse as “heat” or “inflamed” (“heat of wine” or “inflamed with wine”).
- New Testament: Some English bible-versions have the word “bottle” in Matthew 9:17, Mark 2:22 and Luke 5:37–8. The Greek text has askos which refers to a skin, a hide, and also a leather-bag – a water- or wine-skin.
- The parable of the vinedresser, the vine, the branches and fruit, John 15. → eaa116.htm
- The two olive branches or olive clusters of Zechariah 4. → eta017.htm

- On the meaning of the words “branch” and “twig” in Ezekiel 17:22. → eya116.htm
- The Days of Unleavened Bread and their symbolism. → exa019.htm
- On the symbolism of the leavened bread loaves which were presented as a sacrifice on Pentecost. → exa027.htm
- The New Covenant’s memorial ceremony with bread and wine. → eca048.htm
- Many bible-translators have put the word “bread” into 1 Corinthians 5:8, but the apostle Paul was not talking about bread. → eaa108.htm – exa098.htm
- The apostle Paul put stress on that all (able-bodied people) should eat their own bread (support themselves). He and his companions made themselves examples of that. → ema037.htm
- Look also under the heading “Leaven, leavened, unleavened”.
- The word “brimstone” appears in some bible-translations. It is an old word for sulphur. (Old English brynstan, from brinnen, “to burn”, and stan, “stone”.)
- What does Revelation 14:10 mean? Will some humans be tormented with “fire and brimstone”, “for ever and ever”? → eta077.htm

- Some writers have claimed that the Anglo-Saxon people in Britain and in the USA are Israelites, “the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh”. Is that true? → eya018.htm – eya097.htm

- Paul to the saints in Thessalonica: “With labour and toil we worked night and day, so that we would not be a burden to any of you.” (2 Thessalonians 3:8.) → ema037.htm – ema067.htm
- “Burdened with sins”, 2 Timothy 3:6 – most probably, the apostle Paul meant that it was the deceiving men who were “burdened with sins”, and not the gullible women whom them deceived. → ema118.htm
Burn, burned, burning
- Moses saw the burning bush by the mountain of God, Horeb (Mount Sinai), in the land of Midian (Exodus 3:1). Where was that? → eoa067.htm
- Malachi 4:1, “For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble”. → eda027.htm
