143: Who is the True God Revealed in John’s Apocalypse?

October 22, 2020

The Book of Revelation is known for its images and metaphors. This episode explores how Revelation reveals the person and identity of the true God. The most powerful image for God is that he is the one seated upon the throne. This image, which expresses the truths that God is in charge and he is ruling, is later employed within the narrative of Revelation to show that the exalted Jesus shares in God's rule. The Book of Revelation is also clear that the true God is the God of Jesus. Lastly, we note that the one seated upon the throne is to be the God of the intended readers.

142: Individual Human Beings Expressed with Plural Forms

142: Individual Human Beings Expressed with Plural Forms

October 15, 2020

While the Hebrew concept called the "plural of majesty" described the one God with plural forms in order to heighten his excellence, what are we to make of plural forms used of individual human beings? This episode looks at instances in the Hebrew Bible where human individuals are portrayed with plural nouns, not unlike the plural of majesty examples. If plural forms can be used to describe human beings when it is clear that only one individual is in view, then the same conclusions should be drawn when plural forms are used of the Lord God, who is one person.

141: Looking Further into God’s Plural of Majesty

141: Looking Further into God’s Plural of Majesty

October 8, 2020

As we continue to look at the plural of majesty, which seeks to explain how Israel's one God came to be expressed in occasional plural forms, we see that God's holiness is poetically depicted in the plural. We also explore references to God as the Creator and even as the covenant husband of Israel are sometimes in the plural. Lastly, we find that the plural of majesty has extended into biblical Aramaic sections of Scripture, particularly in regard to God as the Most High.

140: God’s Plural of Majesty in the Psalms

140: God’s Plural of Majesty in the Psalms

October 1, 2020

The God revealed in the Old Testament is awesome and majestic, but this God is still a single, undivided self--one person. He is expressed in plural forms, like elohim, for intensification purposes, and this is regarded by Hebrew gramarrians as the plural of majesty. This episode explores how the plural of majesty is expressed throughout the Hebrew poetry of Psalms, where plural forms indicative of intensification are observed in verbs and multiple references for God's temple dwelling.
