The Lord Jesus Christ said:
I am the Light of the World. (John 8:12)
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set
on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a
candle and put it under a bushel, but on a
candlestick, and it giveth light unto all
that are in the house. Let your light so shine
before men that they may see your good works
and glorify your father which is in heaven.
Do you have questions about the Bible?
We have answers right here.
Q. Did Adam and Eve eat an apple in the garden of Eden?
A. The Bible does not say what fruit Adam and Eve ate. Apples do not grow in the Middle East. I cannot say for sure, but the forbidden fruit could be a fig. Usually nude people cover themselves with the nearest objects at hand. Since Adam and Eve covered themselves with fig leaves, I think it reasonable to assume the tree which they ate from was a fig tree (Gen. 3:7).
Q. Who cut Samson's hair?
A. Pictures and movies depict Delilah shaving Samson's head. But the Bible says she had a man cut off Samson's hair (Judg. 16:19).
Q. Does pride go before a fall?
A. Actually the Bible says, "Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall (Prov. 16:18).
Q. Were the three Kings present at Christ's birth?
A. Religious pictures through church history show the three Kings at the stable with the Christ child. However, the Bible says they are magi or wise men, not kings, nor does it say how many there were (Matt. 2:1, 2). Also, they arrived two years after the Lord Jesus was born (Matt. 2:16). They did not present their gifts to a baby in a stable, but to a child in a house (Matt. 2:9-11). Yet today, some nativity scenes show "the Three Kings" at the stable and exclude the shepherds who were actually present (Lk. 2:15).
Some of these questions may sound trivial, but they point to a common problem -- unwarranted assumptions. If people think they already know what the Bible says, they will not take time to read it. I hope this website encourages Christians and non-Christians alike to search the Scriptures daily to see if these things are so (Acts 17:11).
