13:34 Why did Emmanuel
call this a."new".commandment
when in Leviticus 19:18 in
the Old Testament long before Emmanuel was on the Earth it was encouraged?

mind and expect it to try to keep a set of laws, rules and regulations

The Creator wanted to show
mankind that His nature of love was important for them if they ever expected
to prosper and have a 'magical' life. Once this lesson was written, things

In one way it was old, in

how is it different, if at all, from the book of Moses?

is it called 'holy'?

yet others did not care at all for Him. So 'all' the world certainly does
not mean that all the people back then liked or even knew much about him.
It is idiomatic
"The words 'world' and 'all'
are used in some seven or eight senses in Scripture.(one
is Matthew 3:5).and
it is very rarely the 'all' means all persons, taken individually.
The words are generally used
to signify that Christ has redeemed some of all sorts, some Jews, some

17:5 What is."the
mystery of Babylon"?
This is a reference to a
woman. A 'woman' in the Bible is used as of a 'church'. It refers to apostate
churches, which are churches who have either never had, or had and moved
