Q&A

(as they come up)


Q.

  What was the "hour of prayer" as described in the New Testament? What happened in the temple during this time?

A.

  The Jews observed three hours of prayer each day, corresponding with three sacrificial times. A few mentions in the New Testament describe a general gathering of voluntary worshippers, who stood in the outer courts and prayed as individuals. This prayer was usually aloud, but was not intended to be for an audience (although some made it into a production of self-righteousness). Modern practice consists of ritualistic recitation of certain prayers at certain parts of the day.

Q.

  What is the difference between the Holy Ghost and the Holy Spirit? If they are the same Person, why are there different titles?

A.

  The original Greek is the same phrase for both 'Holy Ghost' and 'Holy Spirit'. Translators used the different English words depending on how they interpreted the actions of the Third Person of the Trinity.

Q.

 What is the difference between a priest and a rabbi in the New Testament? What are the differences in duties and roles between the two?

A.

 Priests and rabbis are two completely different things in the New Testament. While priests were by requirement of the tribe of Levi, rabbis could be of any tribe. Priests performed and observed the rituals pertaining to the temple and matters of cleanliness (e.g. declaring lepers clean); when they were not working the biannual week of temple service, the priests lived and worked much like any other Jew. Rabbis, however, were scholars and/or teachers; their duties included activities like teaching (whether formally in the synagogue or informally in the temple and in other gatherings), and settling matters of dispute over the innumerable minutia of the Law.

Q.

 When did Paul spend time in Arabia, as described in Galatians 1? How long did he stay there?

A.

  Paul tells the Galatians that, following his dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus, he "went away into Arabia" before returning to Damascus. Three years later, Paul says, he went to Jerusalem to meet Peter, having not communicated with the other apostles before then. It is unclear when those three years began, but it can reasonably be assumed that it was a span that began when Paul was converted, and included both his time in Arabia and his time in Damascus.
