Dave, can you speak in your own words? Or do you have to use dictionaires and explanations copy and pasted from other men? Also I want to say, we do not have to have a degree, nor know about "literary device" to know the Truth. Nor do we have to know Koine Greek, Hebrew, nor Aramaic.
Anastacia, I do wish to answer your questions as they are very good.
First, as to the section I posted from Robertson. The Greek analysis is not necessary for Believers to apprehend God and our LORD Jesus Christ. However, since this is a debate forum and there are some who either can not or will not venture to explain the terms that they use. It is quite possible that they are unable and that is why I post the Greek helps'
As far as the verses you have cited:
John 17:24, Jesus was in the mind of The Father prior to Creation. The Father has always intended to submit His Creation to The Anointed Savior, The Father's only Begotten Son.
Colossians 1:15, The Greek Text for this verse is proototokos, which means first-borne. However the Text says first-born of every creature making the sense earthly. Where John 3:16, uses the Greek term
monogeneé, which is usually translated as only-begotten. The Text is also earth bound, not heavenward.
Hebrews 2:10, God being The Father and author of their salvation is Jesus.
1 Corinthians 10:1-4, the word Christ in verse 4 is an allegorical usage.
John 3:17, Speaking of Christ as Salvation
Philippians 2:5-11, A beautiful section of Scripture. Regarding vers 7, knowing He was the Logos of His Father he humbled Himself as a man.
The John 1:3 passage is still speaking about Logos prior to the incarnation of Christ
The Ezekiel 8:1-3 passage is speaking of 'Adonaay Yahweh, The Father.
John 16:12-15; "[Jesus said], I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on His own; He will speak only what He hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to Me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.
