Section Raamses to Renew (the other sections → key00.htm)
Raamses – look below, under the heading “Rameses”.
- The scribes and the Pharisees wanted to be called “Rabbi” (Matthew 23:7). (The word rabbi meant something like “my great one”). Jesus forbade his disciples to use such titles (Matthew 23:8). However, it was right and proper to use that title of Jesus.
- On the religious title “Rabbi”. → naa080.htm
- Rachel the daughter of Laban was one of the patriarch Jacob’s wives. She was the mother of Joseph and Benjamin.
- The rainbow is mentioned in the Bible, Genesis 9:13, but in our day, the rainbow is commonly used as a covert symbol for the sun-god (Mithras, et cetera).
- In some churches, one can find pictures of “Jesus” sitting on a rainbow. That is an ancient motive which refers to the sun-god Mithras (Sol Mithras Deus Invictus).
Rameses (Genesis 47:11, Exodus 1:11 and 12:37, Numbers 33:3 and 33:5)
- A comparison of Genesis 47:6 and 11 indicates that “the land of Rameses” and “Goshen” refer to the same area.
- After the departure from Rameses in Egypt, it took the Israelites 45 days to reach the desert of Sinai. So, where was Mount Sinai really located? → noa060.htm
Rapture – Are parousia and rapture biblical concepts? → nga050.htm
- Rebecca the daughter of Bethel was the wife of the patriarch Isaac and the mother of Jacob and Esau. She is first mentioned in Genesis 22:23.
- “Freely you have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8). Jesus said that to the apostles. It was they who were to “freely give” to others, what God had given to them. → nma050.htm – nma020.htm
- “It is more blessed to give than to receive”, Acts 20:35 – the context shows that Paul had been on the giving side, and that he told the elders whom he was addressing, to copy his example in that regard. → nma020.htm
- Did the apostle Paul really “receive wages”, as many bible-translators have made it seem (2 Corinthians 11:8)? → nma090.htm
- Does Exodus 14:16–30 refer to the Red Sea, or a “reed sea” as some say? → noa060.htm
- After the departure from Rameses in Egypt, it took the Israelites circa 25 days to reach the place where they crossed the Red Sea. → noa060e.htm – noa060.htm
- Maps of the Exodus route, from Rameses in Egypt, over the Red Sea, to Mount Sinai in Arabia. → noa060a.htm – noa060d.htm – noa060.htm
Regeneration → nba050.htm
Reign of God (Kingdom of God)
- What is the Reign or Kingdom of God? Where is it located? Does it exist already, or is it only going to be established in the future? Or, is it merely something “in the hearts of men”? → noa010.htm
- Matthew 6:33, “But seek you first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”. What did Jesus mean? How were the disciples to go about “seeking the Kingdom”? → noa100.htm
- Matthew 16:19, the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and “bind” and “loose”. What kind of “keys” and “binding and loosing” was Jesus talking about? → nba070.htm
- Did the saints go to Heaven? → nba040.htm – nxa100.htm
- The heavenly Promised Land. → nba040.htm – nxa100.htm
- The heavenly Jerusalem. → nba040.htm
Reign of Heaven – Look above, under the heading “Reign of God”.
- Word origin: The English noun “religion” comes from the Latin religio which referred to “respect for what is sacred”, “reverence for the gods”. (In old Rome, that was connected to the Roman idol system, of course.)
- The origin of the Latin noun religio is not fully clear. It is said that Cicero thought it was derived from the verb relegare (relego), in the meaning “to go over again”, “to rehearse”, “to repeat” (perhaps the idiom was, the same ritual over and over again – as it was in the Roman idol religion). Some, on the other hand, have suggested that the noun religio might have come from the verb religare (religo), “to bind fast”. (Perhaps referring to dogmas, rituals or the like.)
- Regarding the concepts “worship” and “going to church”. → naa040.htm
- What does the Bible say about religious titles, such as “apostle”, “bishop”, “evangelist”, “father”, “pastor” and so on? → naa080.htm
- Who has biblical, spiritual or religious authority? Who can speak for God? → nsa060.htm
- What does the word “doctrine” really mean? Likewise, what is the meaning of the terms “dogma”, “creed” and “tenet”? → nsa080.htm
- Religion must not be skin-deep only. Believers must take the matters of faith seriously. → nba110.htm
- Monetary things in connection with religion. – Look under the heading “Money”.
- Pride and humility in connection with religion. → nga100.htm
Remphan – Acts 7:43, the star of Remphan (Rephan, Romphan). → (nwa050.htm)
- Some have claimed that the New Covenant is a “renewal” or “modification” of the old, Sinaitic one. Is that correct? → nca090.htm
- Paul to the saints in Colosse: “You have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of him who created him” (Colossians 3:9–10). → nba050.htm
