I will stop asking these questions of Christians for there must be something about my tone that stops them from responding. I don’t know what it is, but they keep off most of the time and when they appear all they say is am a candidate for prayer.
I am jumping the gun a bit here. I had told myself I would eventually finish the OT, it is boring, especially Leviticus with its thou shalt and thou shalt not, but I will finish. My interest is on the NT and I have two questions to ask on the baptism of Jeebus. Our search takes us to Mathew 3:16-17
16 And Jesus when he was baptized, went up straightway from the water: and lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon him;
17 and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
How many people saw the heavens open? Did Jesus dictate this passage?
How many people had the voice? Was it just localized to the specific place?
What is the general direction of heaven and how far is it from the earth? and a bonus question
Why do we no longer hear these voices?
