Pertaining to the 4 Gospels:


John 14 [26] But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.


Luke 10 [7] And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

1Tim. 5 [18] For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

Yeshua, many times quoted the TaNaK:

Luke 10:7 and 1Tim. 5:18 And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

Lev.19 [13] Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.

Deut.24 [14] Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that are in thy land within thy gates:

[15] At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he cry against thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto thee.

Jer.22 [13] Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that useth his neighbour's service without wages, and giveth him not for his work;

Mal.3 [5] And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.


1 Tim. 5 [18] For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn

1 Cor. 9 [9] for it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn.

Deut. 25 [4] thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.


In this verse below, is Peter calling Paul's letters scripture or is Peter comparing Paul's letters to the other scriptures, TaNaK that people pervert? You decide.

2 Pet. 3 [16] As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

Did Paul ever think his letters would be in book form as we have today? (2008) You decide.


Rev.1 [11] Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
