  1. What is Dr. Brown’s opinion on Exedous 4:21-26

    The Lord said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go. 22 Then say to Pharaoh, ‘This is what the Lord says: Israel is my firstborn son, 23 and I told you, “Let my son go, so he may worship me.” But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son.’”

    24 At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met Moses[b] and was about to kill him. 25 But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son’s foreskin and touched Moses’ feet with it.[c] “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me,” she said. 26 So the Lord let him alone. (At that time she said “bridegroom of blood,” referring to circumcision.)

  2. Has Dr. Brown addressed Exodus 4:26 in his writings?

    Is this possibly the precursor to God’s son-

    atonement. Can the full plan of God be seen in this very mysterious part of this chapter where God was going to kill Moses?

  3. I find it interesting that I read a book back in the early 80’s put out by The Way International, that placed the date of the Lord’s birth at Sep 11th, 3 BC, which was a day of Trumpets, and that the Lord’s circumcision (as far as I can count) would have been at the time of the Day of Atonement, thus speaking of the gospel.

  4. I found your interviews with Israelis about Yom Kippur and kaparot to be quite offensive and insulting. It reminded me of Jay Leno’s man on the street interviews. Very disingenuous. You know that there is a difference between an Israeli and a Jew, but many of your listeners may not. Many people do not know that being an Israeli is not the same thing as being a Jew. Many of your listeners may also not know that kaparot is an ancient custom only practiced by a very few Hasidic Jews and is not a main stream part of Judaism today. So, asking an Israeli (not an observant Jew) who knows little about this and is also speaking in a second language and then broadcasting their comments and answers about Yom Kippur and kaparot makes a mockery of what Yom Kippur really is. Think about the reverse situation and how you might feel if someone interviewed an American and asks them to explain the connection between Jesus and Santa Clause or Jesus and the Easter Bunny. Imagine what kind of comments and answers they would come up with. Broadcasting that out to the world would make a mockery of your religion and customs. You might feel offended, as you should. I find it offensive and insulting that you would do this to Jews.

  5. Jon,

    In the book I read (Jesus Christ our Promised Seed) it turns out that there was a wonder in the sky, a woman (the constellation Virgo) which appeared just before sunrise (clothed with the sun?) and the cresent moon was under her feet, and this would have been visible in that part of the world on Sep 11th 3 BC.
