One thing I want to start doing is rereading the Bible with an eye to seeing if everything holds up to Neville’s teachings. My plan is to do it the same way I’ve read the Bible for years, literally one word at a time, searching the concordance and other resources to see what the actual wording is.
“Let’s start at the very beginning, the very first place to start…”
bə·rê·šîṯ – First, earliest, principal thing, beginning.
bā·rā – shape, create, made, fashion; always of divine activity.
’ĕ·lō·hîm; – Plural of eloah; Gods, gods, goddesses, divine beings, judges, rulers.
’êṯ – (pronounced ayth) untranslatable mark of the accusative case. Used often in the sense of substance and also in that of self.
haš·šā·ma·yim – universe
wə·’êṯ – Same as ’êṯ.
hā·’ā·reṣ. – Earth, land, as opposed to heaven and sky.
The first thing that jumped out at me before I even started looking up words is elohim, which I know only sometimes translates to God(s). Divine beings is probably the best translation. If I recall correctly, it’s also sometimes used as a word for angels.
So, the principle thing is devine beings created. What did they create? The Universe and the land we live on.
Day 1 Bible study seeking to see if Neville’s teachings line up with what the Bible says? I’d have to say that’s a yes, definitely.
