Section Kabbala to Kyrios (the other sections → rkw011.htm)
- The Kabbala (several different spellings are in use) is an occult Jewish book whose teachings apparently originated in Babylon.
- Some say that “the Kabbala is the heart of Judaism”, and in many ways it may be so, but that does not mean that the Kabbala would be biblical. It is not. It is an occult text-book among many others.

Kesuvim, Kethuvim (“the Writings”)
- The Jews divide the books of the Old Testament into three sections, Torah, Neviim and Kethuvim, whence the acronym TNK and the word Tanakh. → (rca012.htm, appendix)
- According to one reckoning, the Kethuvim or “the Writings” are considered to contain the following books: The Psalms, the Proverbs, Job, the Song of Solomon, Ruth, the Lamentations, the Ecclesiastes, Esther, Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah and 1 and 2 Chronicles. (A note: Sometimes, that whole section has been called by the name “the Psalms”, Tehillim.)
Keturah – Keturah was one of Abraham’s wives. See Genesis 25:1–4 and 1 Chronicles 1:32–33. – Look also under the heading “Abraham”.
- Matthew 16:19 contains the expression “the keys of the Kingdom”. Its meaning is that a person who was given the “keys” of some kingdom, was given a position in the administration of some part of that kingdom. In the light of related scriptures such as Matthew 19:27–28, it appears that Matthew 16:19 means that the apostles were to serve as judges, on behalf of the Reign or Kingdom of God (after they had become immortals). → rba072.htm

- Kings and priests
- “King and priests” (1 Peter 2:9) – the apostle Peter cited in a poetic manner certain Old Testament passages which record how it was said to the ancient Israelites that they were to be a “peculiar people” and “a royal priesthood” for the Lord. Did Peter mean that the saints whom he wrote to, were literally “priests” and “kings”? → roa032.htm
- The kings, rulers and governments of this world – are they really “appointed by God” and “in his service”, as certain New Testament passages make it seem? → rwa022.htm

- What is the 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”? → roa012.htm

Koinê (koinê Greek)
- Apparently, some writers have caused people to think that the Greek which is used in New Testament manuscripts is somehow different from the common Greek of those days, but it is not. The expression “koine Greek” comes from the expression hê koinê dialektos, “the common language”, “the common way of speaking”. That refers to Greek as it was spoken within the Greek and Roman empires. In short: The Greek text of the NT is not in any significant way different from the common (koinê) Greek of those days.
- Look also under the heading “Greek”.
- The word kosher (from the Hebrew kasher) means such things as “fit”, “proper”, “lawful”. In Judaism, that term refers, not only to the ingredients of food but also to its preparation, and many other things.
- Does the New Covenant have “food rules” of the kind the Old Covenant had? → rha012.htm
- It is said that the word “church” comes via the Middle English chirche and the Old English cirice from the Greek phrase kuriakê oikia. It is further said that that phrase, kuriakê oikia, has been in consistent use within the Catholic Church, ever since it was de facto founded by emperor Constantine. But, seeing that Constantine to the day of his death served the lord Mithras, and that one of his last acts was to uphold the rights of the priests of Mithras – we have the question, to which “lord” does that phrase kuriakê oikia and the later forms “cirice”, “chirche” and “church” actually refer to? → rga062.htm
- Look also under the headings “Kurios”, “Constantine” and “Church”.
Kurios (old Greek for “master”, “lord”)
- Jesus has many titles. In the Greek text of the New Testament, he is often called Kurios which means “Master” or “Lord”.
- Please note that the word kurios was also used of normal humans and apparently even of God the Father. Consider for instance such passages as Matthew 1:20, 2:15 and Mark 11:9, and Matthew 22:37 and Luke 1:16 where it is used in the phrases Kurion ton Theon sou, “the Lord your God” and Kurion ton Theon autôn, “the Lord their God”. Also:
- In the Greek text of the Septuagint version (LXX), the word kurios is found in more than 6000 passages. There, it is used in different ways and meanings – as a translation of or in combination with such Hebrew words and expressions as adon, adonai, adonai yehovih, baal, el, eloah, elohim, gevir, mare, mashal, shaddai, shallit, tsur and yahweh.
- Regarding dogmas which talk about “true names” or “sacred names” (for God the Father and his son Jesus), look under the heading “Sacred names”.
- Look also under the headings “Lord”, “Jesus”, “God”, “Anointed”, “Christ” and “Messiah”.
- In the old Greek culture, the husband in his role as the “man of the house” was called kurios (and despotês), while the wife (the “woman of the house”) was called kuria (and despotis or despoina). → (roa162.htm)
Kyrios – Look above, under the heading “Kurios”.
