Oil Wine On A Wound

In the Good Samaritan parable, he puts oil and wine on the victim's wounds. Why was he carrying fermented wine? And if the wine was not fermented, but merely unfermented grape juice, is it really a good idea to pour sugar on an open sore?

Kathr, you said what was written was never written to the angels. So why did Jesus direct those same words in (Deut) "what was written" to the devil? He is an angel. Was Jesus just blowing smoke? If those words meant nothing to him why even mention them?
I will tell you what happened. Jesus was talking directly to the devil. He was not speaking to anyone else. And what happened after Jesus told him those words? The devil left Him. Jesus was reminding him about (Deut. 6:13,14) the Israelites experience in the wilderness (Deut. 8:2). Christ like them was led into the wilderness to be tested but unlike them, He withstood every aspect of the test.
---Mark_V. on 10/9/13


MarkV, that verse from IT IS WRITTEN was written and stated in Deuteronomy to Israel. NOTHING was ever "WRITTEN" to Angels.

Your twisted distorted mind wants us to believe God WROTE to Satan and his fallen angels how they will serve Him by being disobedient to God? and through that disobedience Satan is serving God? ARE YOU MENTAL?

Jesus DID, as we too also, use the WORD of God, sharper than a two edge sword to fight against our enemies..satan. It's clearly stated in Ephesians ...by putting on the whole armor of God to fight against demonic forces.

MarkV, your version is twisted and sick sick, and no bible teacher will EVER agree with you Jesus was telling Satan it was "written to "YOU SATAN"

"Shira, there are c750 archaic words in the KJV whose meaning has changed since it was translated."
That may be/is true. Yet, the Greek/Latin/Hebrew words that led up to the translation changes still maintains their original meaning. They haven't changed.
The changes came about for clarity, not to change the meaning. Just like the italic words that were added for the same reason.
The KJV, NKJV, RSV and so on are copies of the Word of God.
I feel that the KJV is the best for English speaking people.
This is why we must study and compare Scripture with Scripture to really understand the complete truth.
---Elder on 10/9/13


Shira, there are c750 archaic words in the KJV whose meaning has changed since it was translated. The 1st is Genesis 1:28 KJV reads "and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and "replenish the earth', The word translated 'replenish' is from the Hebrew 'male' which means 'fill.' When the KJV was translated 'male' was rendered 'replenish' which then meant 'fill' but now means 'refill'. This lead to the false Gap Theory when some people proposed a gap existed between Genesis 1:1 and 2 where every living thing on the earth was destroyed in Satan's rebellion, therefore needing refilling. Change the archaic words and the problem goes away. This is unlikely to be done as many people seem to worship this translation.
---Warwick on 10/9/13


Kathr, I told you, you have the wrong god, not the God of the Bible. He is Lord of all. And the God of all. And all shall serve Him, even the devil. No one is autonomous. Only God is. If Jesus did not mean that statement to the devil, but to us, why even say it to him? What effect would that statement have on him if He didn't mean to say it to Him? For it is written all shall worship God. And He is Lord and God of all, you need some of that vinegar yourself.
---Mark_V. on 10/9/13




warwick, I'm not surprised. can you tell me where it is in scripture and what word was changed. one of the tares of satan is to destroy God's Word.
---shira4368 on 10/8/13

In the Good Samaritan parable, he puts oil and wine on the victim's wounds. Why was he carrying fermented wine? And if the wine was not fermented, but merely unfermented grape juice, is it really a good idea to pour sugar on an open sore?
///

so was it illegal for the Good Samaritan to be carrying fermented wine? Maybe he was on his way to a party, or dinner at someone's home. We know the Bible speaks of both fermented and unfermented wine. Maybe the OIL was for the party too. He was bringing the salad dressing perhaps. Oil and vinegar. Since he was carrying BOTH, I say he was bringing the salad dressing and someone else was bringing the cake and burgers.

---kathr4453 on 10/8/13




Vinegar is one of the best all purpose products out there! You can cook, clean, even drink the stuff as a detox, the list goes on and on! And no vinegar won't damage an open wound but actually make it heal faster.

"Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, For it is written, "You (the devil) shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve" In the context who did Jesus say was satan's Lord and God? God. and to whom did Jesus answer would serve God? the devil for it is written. Markv///


FOR it is written, where? It's one of the 10 commandments MarkV, and it was one Jesus kept. the YOU here is God's commandments to MAN not angels. The angels were never under the 10 commandments.

Talk about TWISTING scripture to fit your nonsense.
---kathr4453 on 10/8/13


Kathr, did you not read the answer that Jesus gave the devil after trying to tempt Him?
"Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, For it is written, "You (the devil) shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve" In the context who did Jesus say was satan's Lord and God? God. and to whom did Jesus answer would serve God? the devil for it is written.
Then say,
"So don't be surprised when satan uses God's Word out of context through unregenerate man to tempt you to disobey. God is NOT doing the tempting here THEREFORE God is not CONTROLLING evil and evil decisions." God controls all things and all humans.
---Mark_V. on 10/8/13


Warwick, Since bible versions differ, which one is "God breathed"?
---1st_cliff on 10/8/13


Good point Kathr. All scripture is for doctrine and correction. Which includes both the old and the new. In fact when Paul wrote those words to Timothy not all of the New Testament was written yet. So the Scriptures Timothy learned and taught out was the Old Testament.

But the word has to be rightly divided. Which is why we know not that true circumscion is of the heart.
---Samuelbb7 on 10/8/13


Markv! why was Jesus tested by satan 40 days? Scripture ( Hebrews) states this was for our example as well. We see Jesus being tempted by Satan, offered everything if only Jesus worship him? What we don't see is Jesus saying....hay dude! it's not yours to offer. What we do see is how powerful God's Word is. Jesus didn't call satan names! or curse at him. Simply stood up to him by the WORD , and satan fled. Satan even tried to use God's Word to tempt Jesus. But Jesus KNOWING how to rightly divide the WORD, being the WORD Himself.

So don't be surprised when satan uses God's Word out of context through unregenerate man to tempt you to disobey. God is NOT doing the tempting here THEREFORE God is not CONTROLLING evil and evil decisions.

Shira, as the Bible tells us "all Scripture is God breathed..." Therefore all of it is His word and all of it is there for us to accept. I am sure you agree that it is not up to us to say what is important and what isn't. I do not think there is any scrap in His word.

1Cliff, I do not ask you to believe me, but believe the Word of God. Death came to all man because of Adam disobedience. We are told, that the fall of Adam, and through him the fall of the race, was not by chance or accident, but was so ordained in the secret counsels of God. For Christ was "foreknown indeed as a sacrifice for sin before the foundation of the world" (1 Peter 1:20). Paul speaks of "the eternal purpose" which was purposed in Christ our Lord" (Eph. 3:11). And since the plan of redemption is traced back into eternity, the plan to permit man to fall into the sin from which he was thus to be redeemed must also extend back into eternity.
---Mark_V. on 10/8/13


warwick I did say it didn't matter how God created us. It simply means what counts now is salvation. I don't mean it didn't matter but when it comes to salvation, it does not matter. nothing matters if we are never saved.

Grandma, the correct English spelling is 'sceptic' (see the Oxford Dictionary)while skeptic is the US version. In fact the Christianet spell-checker underlined skeptic as wrong. Sceptic comes from the French 'sceptique.'
---Warwick on 10/7/13


1Cliff, you need to read your Bible and beleive in what you read. Here is the Word of God,
"I form the light and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I am Jehovah that doeth all these things" (Is. 45:7).
And also:
"Shall evil befall a city and Jehovah hath not done it?" (Amos 3:6).
You have to understand that through God's curse of Adam, mankind is what it is, fallen, wicked, ungodly, unrighteous. God controls the hearts of human beings, He can move you in any direction He so desires and does, in order to control all things in heaven and in the earth. Nothing is outside of His will. No atom or human or evil spirit is working behind His back. All things are known by God.
---Mark_V. on 10/7/13


Shira, you write "It doesn't matter how God created us and when He created us but our salvation is the only important thing", and "I know salvation is from Genesis to revelation." This means the events of Genesis must be factual therefore the details therein are vital. For example I could take your comments to mean that whether God created as per Genesis, or by evolution over millions/billions of years, it doesn't matter. But it does as the gospel is inextricably based upon the fact that death was not in the world before sin, whereas any evolutionary scenario has death there millions of years before sin. May I ask: is death a consequence of Adam's sin, or was it there for millions of years before Adam?

He does as He wills always.
"Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did He in heaven, and in the earth, in the sea's, and all the deep places" (Psa. 135:6).
"But our God is in the heavens: He hath done whatsoever He hath pleased" (Psa. 115:3).

1Cliff, you say:

It doesn't have to be written, God is omnipotent. He is in control of all things. Satan is a part of God's plan. God never stops being God. He wrote the plan and it will be as He plan it. No one is going to change the plan of God. You are very critical about many things in Scripture but you are not along. Even those who say they are saved by their own free will, are very wrong. Someone said there was 15 passages that speak about God giving man free will, and to this day I have not seen one. Some of your questions are good. People have the chance to look up passages just to answer. peace

---Cluny on 10/5/13


Shira carefully read through the NT and you will see whenever the gospel is expounded the need for Jesus to come and die and rise again for our salvation is always linked to Adam, and the events in the early part of Genesis. For example:

"For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive" 1 Corinthians 15:21,22. This makes the events which occurred in the early part of Genesis the reason Jesus came to die. If these Genesis events are not historical reality, as Paul believed then why do we insist our salvation through Jesus is an historical reality?

But isn't it you who insists God isn't perfect?

Cliff, you are writing nonsense "Without the sun there can be no evening." All that is needed for an evening, followed by morning is a fixed light source (and God said He made this) and a rotating earth. On earth it appears as though the sun is setting which is language of appearance. If there had been a human alive then they would likewise have seen God's light source appear to be setting.

"God only used the six yoms as a model for the six day work week!" in Hebrew 'yom' accompanied by a number means 24hrs. Where does Scripture say otherwise?

Cliff, you play dumb. The first ever evening cannot be called sunset as the sun had yet to be created, so God calls it "evening" and we all know what evening means don't we.

After the sun was created God continued to call the end of 1 day, and the beginning of the next day "evening." He doesn't use "sunset." And as we know what "evening" means we know that day-length was what we call a 24hr day, for all 6 days of creation.

Two other words used in the KJV that have changed meanings are "let", which in Tudor diction means "inhibit" and "prevent" which simply means "to go before".

An expression in the KJV which can fool modern Americans is "fetched a compass." This doesn't mean that someone went to get a drafting or nautical instrument.

Shira, the KJV was first translated c400yrs ago, however word meanings changed considerably over this time period. For example see Genesis 1:28 "..Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth." 'Replenish' was the translation of the Hebrew 'male' which means "to fill or fill up." When the KJV was translated in the 1600's this word was properly rendered as 'replenish' which then meant 'fill.' But now replenish means 'refill' which lead to the Gap Theory error, when people thinking it meant Adam and Eve should 'refill' the earth (rather than 'fill') got the false idea the world had previously been created and destroyed and Adam and Eve were of a second creation designed to refill that which was previously destroyed.

Another place is Daniel 3:5, where musical instruments familiar with Jacobean readers are mentioned, but did not exists in ancient Babylon, such as the sackbut, an ancestor of the trombone. Of course, then the translators may merely have been using dynamic equivalence.

God didn't have to go through you or I to decide to inspire Luke. The unique traits of the human authors are always indelibly stamped on all the books of Scripture. Luke's work is no exception. The research itself was orchestrated by divine Providence. Luke was moved by the Holy Spirit of God (2 Peter 1:21), therefore, his account is infallibly true.

It may or may not be so, but it all seems to fit.
What could be the problem with this explanation?

Please clarify.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
