Posted on 03/26/2009 6:41:37 PM PDT by Salvation
Featured Term (selected at random):
In the Douay Bible, translation of the Vulgate, there are four Books of Kings, corresponding to Samuel and Kings in the Hebrew Bible. The two Bibles and corresponding versions compare as follows:
Vulgate and Douay
I and II Kings
III and IV Kings
Kingdoms A and B
Kingdoms C and D
I and II Samuel
I and II Kings
The "Kings" are rulers of a united and divided Hebrew kingdom (c. 1040-561 B.C.). I Kings deals with Samuel, the last of the judges; the origin of the monarchy, and the first King, Saul. II Kings treats the reign of David. III Kings covers the reign of Solomon and the divided kingdom up to Elijah. IV Kings tells the rest of the history of Israel, to the Assyrian captivity, and the history of Judah to the Babylonian captivity.
Catholic Word of the Day Ping!
Are you interested in a Catholic Word of the Day thread?
Sure. That sounds wonderful, Salvation.
Thanks for your feedback.
I’d love one! You always come up with good stuff for me to fill my brain with! :0)
I think I get all sorts of Catholic stuff... what is it? If it’s something that is drastically different than no problem. I don’t have time to read most of this any more b/c of my heavy course load at college but I don’t think one can ever get too much Scripture.
Tell me more and I’ll let you know. God bless.
BUT the FIRST word better be a GOOD one. LOL.
Okay. I need to read more Catholic writing. I’m not very holy.
Hi, Paved Paradise. I wonder which word the Pope would pick for the “first” word? Hmmm...
Maybe “Episcopus Romae” - Bishop of Rome.
Oh, well, that’s two words.
So far, let me see if I can remember:
No need to respond unless you find one that is very interesting to YOU!
Yes, but none of us are very holy. We keep striving. A gift that I see that you have is knowledge and a willingness to share it.
Very good. You’re much better than me, Salvation.
Not being Catholic, I’m a bit confused. Of course, confusion seems to be my status quo anymore being in a physics course right now.
What is the significance of Andacollo?
Count me in, if you go ahead with this!
