Small Scriptural Observations

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by Complete, Aug 27, 2016.

  1. Hi there,

    I came across an interesting fact this morning, and did not know where to put it on the forum, so have started this thread for the small things that promote the posters interest or bring joy or wonder.

    My 'fact', was found in a book I have on figures of speech found in Scripture, which was in reference to the repeated words, 'Simon, Simon', found in Luke 22:31:-

    'And the Lord said,
    "Simon, Simon,
    behold, Satan hath desired to have you,
    that he may sift you as wheat:
    But I have prayed for thee,
    that thy faith fail not:
    and when thou art converted,
    strengthen thy brethren.'

    (Luke 22:31)

    The figure of Speech is merely that of duplication (the repetition of the same word in the same sense), it is done for emphasis, so that note will be taken of it's context. In relation to Luke 22:31, the comment regarding the use of the word, 'Simon, Simon', pointed out that whereas Satan 'sifts' to get rid of the wheat! Christ 'fans' to get rid of the chaff (Matt. 3:12).

    'I indeed baptize you
    with water unto repentance:
    but He that cometh after me is mightier than I,
    Whose shoes I am not worthy to bear:
    He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost,
    and with fire:
    Whose fan is in His hand,
    and He will throughly purge His floor,
    and gather His wheat into the garner;
    but He will burn up the chaff
    with unquenchable fire.'

    (Mat 3:12)

    I hope that you will find this of interest as I did. [​IMG]
