I feel like the clue should put more emphasis on Lazarus, as the Bible cites several counts of Jesus raising people from the dead.

I think there are only 3 people Jesus resurrected, aren't there? And Lazarus is the only one of those 3 with a name. I could be mistaken.

Only Jesus was resurrected from the dead. The others were technically only resuscitated because they all, eventually, did die again, not Jesus.

So they were only apparently dead because they died AGAIN? I thought you were just making the claim that they didn't die, until I saw the contradiction.

Aren't you the one who, in comments in other puzzles, deny the existence of Jesus Christ? - Now you're debating how many people He raised from the dead... interesting.

The language you are using suggests there is an established fact that I don't want to acknowledge. That's not the case. I've merely pointed to scholarly questions raised about the historicity of the Jesus character while also, often, intimating that my personal belief is that Jesus was a real person. That's irrelevant, though.

Real person or not that doesn't make the Bible true. Obviously he never resurrected anyone. Also obvious, or it should be, is that when someone refers to Biblical stories involving Jesus they are referring to.... Biblical stories. Nobody denies the existence of the Bible. That actually IS an established fact. When adults talk about Biblical miracles they are discussing what is described as taking place in the Bible, not what actually occurred in history. It's like I asked a child how many bowls of porridge Goldilocks found and you come along and say HEEY! I thought you said the three bears weren't REAL!

Also, asking a question is not the same thing as debating. I have a feeling if I ever heard you read my comments out loud in the voice you've picked out for me in your head it would be so far removed from reality as to be hilarious.

It's so rare that people talk about a historical Jesus that I think the default assumption is that we are referring to the literary character. When I say "it's true Luke Skywalker kissed his sister on multiple occasions," nobody expects me to follow that up with, "it is portrayed on screen. Whether that's actually true..."

What? Luke kissed his sister more than once!? Or are you counting kisses on the cheek?

Level 82

There was a kiss on the cheek as they were about to swing through that shaft on the Death Star in A New Hope. There was a 2nd kiss on the cheek on Yavin IV as he was about to leave to attack the Death Star. There was a full on smooch on the lips at the beginning of Empire Strikes Back on Hoth which might have been trying to make Han jealous. There was another kiss on the lips as Luke was lying weak in bed after being saved from Bespin at the end of Empire. See them all here. Now... as to whether or not this really happened... don't want to disrespect anyone's beliefs by saying one way or the other.

They also very nearly kiss in a deleted scene from Empire but are interrupted by the droids. Doesn't actually happen, but it's the only time they both lean in for it as opposed to Leia planting one on Luke as a friend or to get at Han. Of course it was left out of the canon and only survives as part of the apocrypha...

LOL. I did the same thing, too, at first, and kept wondering why it wasn't accepted. Tower of Babylon sounds like a casino.

May 27, 2019
same but when it wasnt accepted i immediately realized my mistake. I think it is because you hear of babylon all the time ( well if you like to research certain stuff) but you hardly come across babel.

it was more on speeddial let's say, instead of just a stored number ^^ (like how my mother often calls me and says ow, I wanted to call someone else. We dont have/do speeddials though never have. So it is more like an intuitive automatic without thinking thing)

Actually, in the original Hebrew (both in the Bible and in modern historical research) Babylon, Babylonia and Babel are all the same word: “Bavel”.

The tower is called “tower of Bavel”, the ancient empire is called “kingdom of Bavel” and its capital is called “city of Bavel”.

The Hebrew bible draws a direct narrative, etymological, geographical and historical continuity between the three - saying that the city that sprung around the unfinished tower is called “Bavel” (Babylon) because in the tower building act God confused (“bilbel”) the languages of all people.

My Mom had a great come-back for supercilious folks who would

demand that she be born again or end up in Hell. She'd smile sweetly and reply: "I know I'm going to hell so, do me a favor,

and save me a spot next to you."

What's the definition of a miracle? is turning lot's wife into a pillar of salt because she looked back really a miracle? sounds more like a punishment which I wouldn't class as a miracle, but I'm guessing the use of miracle in this case just means supernatural stuff that happened in the bible

Level 66
May 27, 2019
I agree. I don't think the parents of the eldest sons who were killed, nor those that endured the other plagues, would say "It's a miracle!"

Level 77
May 27, 2019
Sure, and to the pursuing Egyptians, the parting of the Red Sea wasn't a miracle. To anyone not part of Noah's immediate family, the flood wasn't a miracle. The people of Jericho probably didn't think too highly of their walls coming down, and I'm sure that army wasn't real keen on being wiped out by one guy with a jawbone. One person's miracle can be another person's curse.

A miracle does not have to be a "good" thing, although that is the common usage. Merriam-Webster's top defition is, "an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs." If someone has an OED, I'd be curious what it has to say.
+1
Level 66
Oct 19, 2021
The OED second edition says:

A marvellous event occurring within human experience, which cannot have been brought about by human power or by the operation of any natural agency, and must therefore be ascribed to the special intervention of the Deity or of some supernatural being

So also not necessarily "good".

+1
Level 34
Apr 13, 2024
So, the definition of miracle doesn't have to describe a good thing, but it usually does. Miracle in the sense of the Bible is taken as an extraordinary action of God.

It's fairly miraculous that a person could instantly and magically change into salt. But you're right... usually a miracle is something that is welcome. Unless Lot really hated his wife...
