Section Trees to Tyrus (the other sections → rkw011.htm)
- The olive trees of Revelation 11 and Zechariah 4. → rta012.htm
- Trees in Heaven. → (rba043.htm)
- The tree of life in Heaven. → (rda022.htm)
- The parable of the fig tree, mentioned in Matthew 24:32. → (rga042.htm)

- The verb “to trespass” is constructed from the Latin trans, “beyond”, and the Vulgar Latin passare, “to step”, “to walk”.
- Similarly, the word “transgression” comes from the Latin noun transgressio which refers to “stepping over”, “going across”. The root is the Latin verb transgradior where trans means “beyond” and gradior means “to step”, “to walk”.
- Look also under the heading “Sin”.
Tribes of Israel
- The twelve tribes of Israel consist of the descendants of the patriarch Jacob’s twelve sons.
- Jacob’s descendants came to be called “the sons of Israel” or “the children of Israel”, for the simple reason that Jacob’s other name was Israel; see Genesis 32:24–28.
- The “tribes of Israel” series at this site (with comments on certain Anglo-Israelist dogmas):
- What biblical prophecy says about the fate of the ten lost tribes of Israel. → rya012.htm

- On the meaning of the words “seven times” in Leviticus 26:18, 21, 24 and 28. Does the wording in the Hebrew text mean “seven times more” or “sevenfold” as many translations have it, or “2520 years” as some writers have claimed? → rya052.htm
- Jeremiah 30:7, “the time of Jacob’s trouble”. On what chapter 30 in the book of Jeremiah means and refers to. → rya062.htm
- On the prophet Ezekiel and his mission, and the “Ezekiel message” dogma. → rya072.htm
- Matthew 10:5–6, “do not go into the way of the gentiles and do not enter a city of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel”. Who and where were those “sheep”? Where did the apostles go? → rya083.htm
- Did the ten lost tribes of Israel move to Europe? Are the white north-west Europeans Israelites, as some say? → rya092.htm

- Did people of the ten lost tribes of Israel travel to Greece, Denmark and Ireland? Some notes on certain Anglo-Israelist dogmas. → rya132.htm

- Regarding the origin of the people who since the 1800s have moved to the land of Israel and call themselves Jews, see appendix 1 in the article rga012.htm.
Tribulation, tribulations (persecution, persecutions)
- In the New Testament, when for instance the KJV has “tribulation”, the Greek text has for the most part thlipsis which refers to “pressure”, “affliction”, “persecution” (oppression).
- The word “tribulation” is copied from the Latin text of the Catholic Vulgate version. (The old Latin verb tribulo meant “to press”, “to oppress”.)
- In short: “Tribulation” = persecution (when caused by people), or affliction (if caused by other things, such as famine).
- On the great tribulation of Matthew 24:21 and Revelation 7:14. → rta042.htm
- Why does God allow evil and suffering? → rwa012.htm
- The word and concept “trinity” is not mentioned in the Bible.
- Some might think of 1 John 5:7–8 where some bible-versions have the words “in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one, and there are three that bear witness on earth” – the so-called Comma Johanneum. But, those words are a spurious addition which apparently was produced in the 1500s.
- The Catholic priest Gerrit Gerritszoon (“Erasmus”) who compiled the Latin-Greek NT text whose later versions came to be misleadingly called “textus receptus”, did not have those words in the first versions of his text. Some have said that Gerritszoon was under pressure, and that when someone produced a “manuscript” which had those words, he added them to his third edition, in 1522.
- There are thousands of known manuscripts with the Greek text of the New Testament, but that addition occurs only in less than ten of them. – Without that added phrase, the wording of 1 John 5:6–8 is as follows:
- 1 John 5:6 This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus the Messiah. Not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear witness, 8 the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three are in one [or, are in agreement].
- In short: The originally Catholic dogma regarding “trinity” does not have any biblical basis. (Please note that this does not in any way mean that unitarianism or binitarianism and their dogmas would be correct.)

Trust and trustworthiness
- In the Greek NT text, the word for “faith” is pistis which has to do with trusting and being trustworthy. → rba092.htm

Twilight – Does the Hebrew phrase ben ha arbayim, “between the evenings”, refer to “twilight” or “dusk” as some have claimed, or to the middle of the afternoon which is when the Jews killed their Passover lambs while Jesus at the same time gave his life as the Lamb of God? → rxa082.htm
