The feeling of national Exclusiveness and antipathy was intensified by the captivity in Babylon, when the prophetic and priestly instructors of the exiled Jews taught them that their calamities came upon them on account of their disloyalty to Jahweh and the ordinances of His religion, and because they compromised with idolatrous practices and heathen nations. In Rabbinical writings Jewish Exclusiveness manifested itself even more decisively (see Eisenmenger, Entdecktes Judenthum , vol
Unclean And Clean - Swine are liable to disease from foul feeding, and in Palestine are not very wholesome food; so also fat and blood; but the spiritual reason of prohibition was the main one, the swine's uncleanness of feeding typifying moral impurity, and the fat and the blood being God's Exclusive perquisite for sacrifice on the altar
Coming Again - 297, 305) that it is on the utterances of Jesus regarding His spiritual coming in the hearts of believers that the Fourth Gospel lays the principal and almost Exclusive stress; and probably it is in the light of Jesus’ predictions of this spiritual or dynamical coming that we are to find the clue to what He meant in His sayings respecting the historical coming or comings, and the great apocalyptic coming, which the Synoptics report with special fulness and detail
Cosmopolitanism - —That the Jews were of all nations the most Exclusive, was familiar to classic writers (cf. ...
Jewish Exclusiveness was apparently endorsed by Christ Himself (Matthew 5:47 ( Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885) 6:7, 32); the Twelve are forbidden to go into any way of the Gentiles (Matthew 10:5); and the Syrophœnician woman is at first addressed in thoroughly Jewish language (Matthew 15:21, Mark 7:24). ...
It is true that the Gospels are full of protests against Jewish Exclusiveness (Matthew 3:9 ‘Think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father’; cf. See also articles Exclusiveness, Grecians, and Universalism
Apostle - Their Exclusive office was to found the Christian church; so their official existence was of Christ, and prior to the churches they collectively and severally founded
Phoenice - It seemed narrow minded to be so Exclusive as to maintain that Jehovah of Israel alone was to be worshipped
Service - This service is complete in its self-dedication and Exclusive in its object
Jew, Jewess - Their Exclusive religion and their contempt of the heathen kept them together as a community within the larger population where they found a home, and their capacity for commerce often enabled them to become extremely wealthy. Their Exclusiveness and the commercial dishonesty of many of them led to their being hated by the common people, while their wealth made them exceedingly useful to rulers and princes, who thus were induced to protect them
Jew - During fifty generations of the children of Adam the family of this man, or rather the descendants of a part of it, "elected according to the purpose of God," Romans 9:11, enjoyed Exclusive privileges; to the Israelites alone "pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises, whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed forever
Marriage - God's ideal was for marriage to be permanent and Exclusive. God's ideal Exclusiveness of the "one flesh" relationship disallows any other relationship: homosexuality, polygamy, adultery, premarital sex, concubinage, incest, bestiality, cultic prostitution. Commitment to Exclusive sexual intimacy is treated with dignity, considered honorable and undefiled (Hebrews 13:4 )
False Prophet - ...
The theology of the false prophets was characterized by the following: (1) a selective appeal to the Davidic/Zion and Sinaitic covenants as a type of fire insurance against any threatened calamity; (2) an Exclusive teaching of hope/salvation with no attention given to any potential adversities for lack of obedience to God's Word; and (3) a constant appeal to what the masses wanted to hear as a basis for promoting their own power and the status quo
Jonah, Theology of - Salvation is Yahweh's Exclusive possession (2:10)
Palestine - Originally denoted only the sea-coast of the land of Canaan inhabited by the Philistines (Exodus 15:14 ; Isaiah 14:29,31 ; Joel 3:4 ), and in this sense Exclusively the Hebrew name Pelesheth (rendered "Philistia" in Psalm 60:8 ; 83:7 ; 87:4 ; 108:9 ) occurs in the Old Testament. ...
Exclusive of Idumea, the kingdom of Herod the Great comprehended the whole of the country originally divided among the twelve tribes, which he divided into four provinces or districts

Jehoiachin - The 1,000 "craftsmen" may be Exclusive of the 10,000
Gentiles (2) - The material and moral evils which the ïm had brought upon Israel in its later history tended to intensify the feelings of hostility with which the Jews looked out upon them from their own religious Exclusiveness; and accordingly, in our Lord’s day and in the generations following (see Acts and the Epistles ), they were regarded by the Jews generally as aliens, having no claim whatever to the Divine recognition. ...
The fact that Jesus did not pass His youth in the religiously Exclusive atmosphere of Jerusalem, but in the freer and more liberal surroundings of semi-Gentile Galilee, fits in with the prophetic word of Simeon at the Presentation, and the declarations of His forerunner: He was to be ‘a light to lighten the Gentiles’ (Luke 2:32); and, God was able to raise up to Abraham children (Luke 3:8) who could not boast any natural descent from the patriarch. And, finally, at the end of His ministry, in the allegory of the sheep and the goats, spoken Exclusively with reference to Gentiles, He applies to those on the right hand the word ‘righteous,’ which in the Jewish language was so often the technical term to designate only the chosen people (Matthew 25:37)
Immanence - But immanence and transcendence are not Exclusive of each other
Communion - When he says that the Jews by eating the sacrifices have communion with the altar, he means spiritual communion with God whose representative is the altar (note that the phrase ‘communion with God’ is avoided-a true mark of Rabbinism); and when he says that to partake of a supper connected with a heathen sacrifice brings men into communion with demons, he does not accept the popular idea that the food itself was quasi-infected by demonic influence (he declares formally that to eat such flesh unconsciously does not harm a Christian); but he says; ‘ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of devils: ye cannot partake of the table of the Lord and of the table of devils,’ because partaking of the table constitutes a spiritual and moral communion which is Exclusive in its effect
Attributes of Christ - —Jesus claimed a unique knowledge of the Father and the Exclusive power of revealing Him (Matthew 11:27)
Feeding the Multitudes - In the first instance (reported in Mark 14:15-21, Mark 6:35-44, Luke 9:12-17, John 6:5-13) the number is given as 5000, Exclusive (so Mt

Septuagint - Dispersion), yet one and all had lost the knowledge of the classical Hebrew of the Scriptures, with the exception of the learned—the priests and Rabbis—of whom the original language of the OT was almost the Exclusive property
Deuteronomy, Theology of - The rare occurrences of Elohim (23 times) and other names and epithets (about 18 times) reinforce the covenant character of the book and its almost Exclusive attention to Israel, for these names, especially Elohim and its byforms, occur most regularly in contexts describing God's more cosmic or universal interests in creation and history. They are adumbrated in the Shema of 6:4-5, the confessional fulcrum of Old Testament faith that defines Yahweh as the unique Sovereign and reduces Israel's obligation to him to one of Exclusive love, that is, obedience. ...
The Exclusiveness of Yahweh is underscored by the insistence that worship be centralized in one place, the place where Yahweh would choose to "put his Name" (12:5,11). Finally, Yahweh's Exclusiveness is celebrated by the tribute paid him by his vassal people Israel
John the Baptist - If we accede to the opinion of those who contend for the year 97, this late date, Exclusive of the authorities which support it, seems favoured by the contents and design of the Gospel itself. But decreasing love is an Exclusive criterion and failing, which the Apostle reprimands in no other community
Education - In character Hebrew education was predominantly, one might almost say Exclusively, religious and ethical. In the Beth hammidrash (house of study) the Exclusive subjects of study were the interpretation of the OT, and the art of applying the regulations of the Torah, by means of certain exegetical canons, to the minutest details of the life of the time
Psalms, Book of, - There are none to which the period of his reign at Hebron can lay Exclusive claim. Now there are in the Psalter at least three psalms of which the interest evidently centers in a person distinct from the speaker, and which, since they cannot without violence to the language be interpreted of any but the Messiah, may be termed directly and Exclusively Messianic
Synagogue - église) became the Exclusive name for the Christian Church in the double sense of congregation and house of worship (Schürer, GJV Galatians, Letter to the - With the coming of Christ, faith and law had become mutually Exclusive as ways to approach God
High Priest - He figures in the narrative of Numbers 16:1 where the offering of incense is affirmed as the Exclusive prerogative of the priests and in the red heifer ceremony ( Numbers 19:1 )
Sol'Omon - Apparently his influence over his son's character was one Exclusively for good. (1 Kings 10:28,29 ) The total amount thus brought into the treasury in gold, Exclusive of all payments in kind, amounted to 666 talents
Captivity - From Jeremiah 52:12; Jeremiah 52:15; Jeremiah 52:28-29; Jeremiah 52:30 we learn Nebuchadnezzar in his seventh (or eighth, according to the month with which the counting of the year begins) year carried away 3,023; but in 2 Kings 24:14; 2 Kings 24:16; Jeremiah 22:18-19; 2 Kings 24:000, and 7,000 men of might, and 1,000 craftsmen; the 3,023 were probably of Judah, the remaining 7,000 were of the other tribes of Israel, of whom some still had been left after the Assyrian deportation; the 1,000 craftsmen were Exclusive of the 10,000

Labour (2) - ...
A charge, which has been brought again and again against the Christian religion, is that it is too Exclusive in its other-worldliness to be of practical value in the midst of life’s stern realities
Perfect Perfection - ” ’ But even if the two meanings are not mutually Exclusive, the primary appeal is for reconciliation, in order that the personal perfecting in grace of the members of the Church may not be hindered
Optatus, Bishop of Milevis - This chair with whose Exclusive claim for respect the little Donatist community can in no way compete carries with it necessarily the "angel" ("ducit ad se angelum") unless the Donatists have this gift enclosed for their own use in a narrow space and excluding the seven angels of St. (3) The holy spirit of adoption which Donatists claim Exclusively for themselves applying to Catholics unjustly the words of our Lord about proselytism (Mat_23:15) (4) The fountain (probably faith) of which heretics cannot partake and (5) its seal "annulus" (probably baptism) (Son_4:12). As a theological treatise it is often loose and rambling, with frequent repetition; but it exposes with clearness and force the inconsistency of the Donatists, and of all who, like them, fix their attention Exclusively on the ethical side of religion, estimated by an arbitrary standard of opinion, to the disregard of other conditions of the greatest importance in the constitution of a church
Pharisees - This tendency towards an Exclusiveness of culture increased, and the breach widened between the Pharisee and the ’am haarets. Manifestly this was in opposition to the Pharisaic tendency towards Exclusiveness, and it was the latter that conquered. We may take it that this ended all missionary enterprise, and that after the fall of the city the Exclusive tendency reigned supreme. Paul is meritorious not more as the Apostle of the Gentiles than by the fact that he, a former Pharisee, saw so clearly the danger of this incipient neo-Pharisaism with its Exclusiveness and ‘desire to be under the law,’ and combated it so successfully
Covenant - ...
If we believe, therefore, in a Trinity, it is more proper to suppose that they were all engaged in this plan of the covenant, than to suppose that the Father and Son were engaged Exclusive of the Holy Spirit, 1 John 5:6-7
Violence - ‘Every man’ (πᾶς) is perhaps emphatic, showing that the Pharisees and the scribes must no longer look on the Kingdom as the Exclusive possession of their nation or class; it was open to all nations, and might be entered by even the lowest men, though it would appear from the warning of the following verses that not all would seek it in the right spirit
Sin - )...
What then is the answer to the dilemma? A possible answer is the fact that the Jewish mind had no problem in admitting two mutually Exclusive ideas into the same system of thought
Joshua, Theology of - In return, his covenant requires Exclusive loyalty to the Lord as the only God worshiped in Israel
Idol, Idolatry - The covenant provided legal parameters for this unique relationship, and the limitation of Exclusive worship was a significant part of the covenant
Antichrist - ...
Antichrist's characteristics (2 Thessalonians 2; 1 John 2:18-22; 1 John 4:3) shall be open opposition to God and religion, a claim to God's Exclusive prerogatives, lawlessness, power of lying miracles and of beguiling souls under Satan's energizing, having a lamb's horns, i
Paul as a Preacher - ...
WHEN it pleased God to reveal the cross of Christ in Paul, from that day the cross of Christ was Paul's special, peculiar, and Exclusive Gospel
Pharisees - " On the return from Babylon the Jews became more Exclusive than ever. Isaiah (Isaiah 65:5) foretells their characteristic formalism, pride of sanctimony, and hypocritical Exclusiveness (Judges 1:18)
Carpocrates, Philospher - Thus the Carpocratians gave honour, but not an Exclusive honour, to Christ
Gnostics - With respect to the origin of this system the same author observes: There is no system of philosophy which has been traced to a greater number of sources than that which we are now discussing; and the variety of opinions seems to have arisen from persons either not observing the very different aspects which Gnosticism assumed, or from wishing to derive it from one Exclusive quarter
Jehoram - ...
The king's want of faith, yet mixed with recognition of God's Exclusive omnipotence, appears in his answer to the Syrian king's command that he should heal Naaman of his leprosy, "Am I God to kill and to make alive, that this man," etc
Thessalonians, the Epistles to the - Their defect was the Exclusive dwelling of some on Christ's kingdom to such a degree as to neglect present duties (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12)
Census - ) numbered 1496, Exclusive of women and children (Ezra 8:1-14)
Logos - The Evangelist shows, it is true, as Kirn points out, that the absoluteness of Christ’s historical mission and His Exclusive mediation of the Divine saving grace are guaranteed by the fact that the roots of His personal life reach Back into the eternal life of God
Salvation - Peter's certainty of this relation between "Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified" and the "God [who raised him]'>[2] from the dead" moves him to the Exclusive confession that salvation belongs only to the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:10-12 )
Hell - They are mutually Exclusive, if taken literally, for the fires of hell conflict with its "utter darkness
Minister Ministry - ’ This passage is one of those which point to ‘the fundamental idea of the Christian Church, in which an universal priesthood has supplanted the Exclusive ministrations of a select tribe or class
Hermogenes (1), a Teacher of Heretical Doctrine - Tertullian holds Scripture so Exclusive an authority that its mere silence is decisive, and, since it does not mention pre-existent matter, that those who assert its existence incur the woe denounced against those who add to that which is written
Calling - In none of these passages is the doctrine of the Exclusive calling of a set number of men contained; and the synod of Dort, as though they felt this, only attempt to infer the doctrine from a text already quoted; but which we will now more fully notice: "Whom he did predestinate, them he also called; and whom he called, them he also justified; and whom he justified, them he also glorified," Romans 8:30
Nazarene - And by this Exclusive personal right in our Jesus to this Nazarite of God, we plainly discover this sweet feature of character in our Lord, which endears him to his people, and shews the solemn dedication of himself for them to God
Law - Moses, conscious of the degeneracy of the Israelites, their ignorance of, or their inattention to, the true God, and the difficulty and danger of any attempt to recall them to his Exclusive worship, and to withdraw them from Egypt, seems to decline the task; but when absolutely commanded to undertake it, he said unto God, "Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I am that I am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you,"...
Exodus 3:13-14 . Interpreted in this natural and rational latitude, how comprehensive and important is this summary of moral duty! It inculcates the adoration of the one true God, who "made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is;" who must, therefore, be infinite in power, and wisdom, and goodness; the object of Exclusive adoration; of gratitude for every blessing we enjoy; of fear, for he is a jealous God; of hope, for he is merciful
Persecution - We can trace in Elijah’s attitude the germ of that Exclusiveness which is inevitable when the terms ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ or ‘true’ and ‘false’ are introduced into religion. Right is Exclusive; truth is intolerant. The prophet is necessarily insistent, uncompromising, intolerant, Exclusive. Conscious of the nature of the possession which he had in his religion, he cultivated national self-confidence and self-reliance, which ultimately degenerated into national pride and Exclusiveness. The Emperor had no deep-rooted objection to the religion of Judah-except its Exclusiveness. They were rigorously and Exclusively Jewish in their outlook
Tares - This ties the parable to the historical situation in which it was spoken, forbidding an Exclusive reference to the future; while the fact that it is the Son of Man (= Messiah) who has sown the good seed (cf
Disciples - Thus, others in the Pauline missionary party were called, for example, “brother,” “fellow worker,” or “bond servant” (Romans 16:3 ; Philippians 2:25 ; Colossians 4:7-14 ; 1 Thessalonians 3:1 ); but the term “apostle” had a more Exclusive, and thus more restricted, meaning
Flood, the - ...
Many lines of biblical evidence converge in affirming the universal extent of the flood and also reveal the theological significance of this conclusion: (1) the trajectory of major themes in Genesis 1-11 creation, fall, plan of redemption, spread of sinis universal in scope and calls for a matching universal judgment; (2) the genealogical lines from both Adam (Genesis 4:17-26 ; 5:1-31 ) and Noah (Genesis 10:1-32 ; 11:1-9 ) are Exclusive in nature, indicating that as Adam was father of all preflood humanity, so Noah was father of all postflood humanity; (3) the same inclusive divine blessing to be fruitful and multiply is given to both Adam and Noah (Genesis 1:28 ; 9:1 ); (4) the covenant (Genesis 9:9-10 ) and its rainbow sign (Genesis 9:12-17 ) are clearly linked with the extent of the flood (Genesis 9:16,18 ); if there was only a local flood, then the covenant would be only a limited covenant; (5) the viability of God's promise (Genesis 9:15 ; cf
Rufus - 107), is ‘depreciatory,—not indeed of the Twelve themselves, but of the extravagant and Exclusive claims set up for them by the Judaizers
Luke, Gospel of - ...
Some scholars have posited an “L” source (an abbreviation for Luke) identifying some 500 verses Exclusive to Luke, including the 132 verses of Luke 1:39-56 and Luke 2:1
Joel, Theology of - True, the two are not mutually Exclusive; but neither are they identical
Ebionism - After the Fall of Jerusalem, just as Judaism became more intolerant and more Exclusive, so we may suppose this judaizing sect followed suit, and, retiring more and more from fellowship with the Church at large, and seeking to strengthen their own position, they by degrees formulated the system we have described
Sanctify - First, it can mean “to declare something holy” or to declare it to be med Exclusively for celebrating God’s glory. ...

Baptism - But Christ's baptism was performed by His disciples, not Himself, that He might mark His Exclusive dignity as baptizer, with the Holy Spirit (John 4:2), and that the validity of baptism might not depend on the worth of the minister but on God's appointment. Circumcision was the badge of Jewish Exclusiveness in one aspect; baptism is the badge of God's world-wide mercy in Christ
Ezra, the Book of - 26-27, and ending with that Exclusive ministry to them for three and a half years after His crucifixion, ceasing through their own rejection of Him when preached by the apostles and evangelists (Acts 7-8)
Law - " The order of the ten indicates the divine hand; God's being, unity, Exclusive deity, "have no other gods before My face" (Hebrews 4:13); His worship as a Spirit without idol symbol; His name; His day; His earthly representatives, parents, to be honoured; then regard for one's neighbour's life; for his second self, his wife; his property; character; bridling the desires, the fence of duty to one's neighbour and one's self
Reality - —(3) In His bearing towards the bigoted Exclusiveness of His day. The same superiority to the Exclusive temper of His time is evinced also in His relations with the despised Samaritans (John 4:4-12, Luke 17:11-19; cf
Heaven, Heavens, Heavenlies - The nearly Exclusive word for heaven in the Old Testament, samayim Golden Rule - The two views are complementary and not mutually Exclusive
Aaron - ...
The consecration comprised a sin offering for reconciliation, a burnt offering to express whole-hearted self-consecration to God, and a meat offering (minchah ), unbloody, of flour, salt, oil, and frankincense, to thank God for the blessings of nature (these marking the blessings and duties of man); then also the special tokens of the priestly office, the ram of consecration, whose blood was sprinkled on Aaron and his sons to sanctify them, the sacred robes "for glory and for beauty," breast-plate, ephod, robe, embroidered coat, mitre, and girdle, and linen breeches (Exodus 28); and the anointing with the holy oil, which it was death for anyone else to compound or use (Exodus 30:22-38), symbolizing God's grace, the Exclusive source of spiritual unction
Amazement - ...
Θαυμάζω is a broad term, primarily expressing the complete engagement of the mind with an object which seizes so powerfully upon the attention as to compel Exclusive occupation with it
Apostle - ...
To the Apostles belonged the peculiar and Exclusive prerogative of writing doctrinal and preceptive books of authority in the Christian church; and it sufficiently appears that no epistles or other doctrinal writings of any person who was of a rank below that of an Apostle, were received by Christians as a part of their rule of faith
New Testament - Tischendorf catalogues about 500 of the Gospels, 200 of the Acts and Catholic Epistles, 250 of the Pauline Epistles, and a little less than 100 of the Apocalypse (exclusive of lectionaries); but this enumeration can only be accepted as a rough approximation, ...

God, Names of - God retains Exclusive prerogative as deity. " Yahweh as God is Exclusively God: "This is what the Lord saysIsrael's King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God" (Isaiah 44:6 )
Coming to Christ - On the other hand, Christ’s call is an Exclusive call. The phrase ‘coming to Christ’ belongs, it is true, almost Exclusively to the Gospels, and is found in its highest meaning mainly in that of St
Friendship - —(b) The Exclusive type of friendship is displayed in the parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15)
Song of Songs - The Exclusive use of the abbreviated pronoun occurs in no early document, and cannot be explained as a peculiarity of the northern dialect
Bible - " The term "Bible," though dating only from the 5th century in its sacred and Exclusive use, is virtually expressed in the designations occurring in itself: "The Scripture" (John 10:35; John 20:9; Romans 4:3; 2 Peter 1:20); "the Book" (Psalms 40:7, cepher ); "the Scripture (kithab ) of truth" (Daniel 10:21)
Canaan, History And Religion of - It was not possible to worship both, for Yahweh demanded Exclusive allegiance
Holy Spirit - Thus the possession of the Spirit was not the Exclusive privilege of an official class, but was granted to the entire community entrusted with the service of God, and baptism is accordingly offered to all in view of the promise of the Spirit (Acts 2:38; Acts 19:2 f. Had the Spirit occupied a position independent of Christ, the primitive faith would inevitably have acquired that mystical tendency which finds the evidences of Divine grace Exclusively in the inner life of man
Prophet - Herein they rose above Jewish Exclusiveness, drew forth the living spirit from beneath the letter of the law, and prepared for a perfect, final, and universal church. The college training was but a preparation, then in the case of the few followed God's Exclusive work: Exodus 3:2, Moses; 1 Samuel 3:10, Samuel; Isaiah, Isaiah 6:8; Jeremiah, Jeremiah 1:5; Ezekiel
Baxterianism - It is a singular fact, that the Presbyterians, though at first more rigid in their doctrinal views, and more Exclusive in their spirit and system of church government, than the Independents, became before the death of Baxter the more liberal party
Circumcision - It had not only no reason remaining, but the continuance of the rite involved the recognition of Exclusive privileges which had been terminated by Christ
Israel, History of - In the lengthy rule of Manasseh (687-642), Judah jettisoned much of the concern for Exclusive Yahwism
Sanhedrin (2) - The administration of secular affairs tended to produce in this caste a certain worldliness, a more or less Exclusive interest in worldly business and culture, and consequently a readiness to fall under the influence of Hellenism. Passively opposed to them were the Hăsîdîm, the pious students of the Law and the legal tradition, whose interests and aspirations were Exclusively religious and ecclesiastical. At the time of John Hyrcanus, therefore, the Sanhedrin consisted of adherents of the Hasmonaean dynasty—the new aristocracy combined with the remnants of the old, representing two of the three elements of the later court, the chief priests and the elders—and was overwhelmingly, if not Exclusively, Sadducee. The new Sanhedrin had no political authority, and was composed Exclusively of Rabbis, whose discussions and decisions were mainly theoretical
Saviour (2) - To be a Saviour is God’s Exclusive prerogative (Psalms 60:11; Psalms 108:12, Isaiah 43:11; Isaiah 45:22)
Gospel - Through all his letters, the contrast between Law and gospel as mutually Exclusive is developed in the antitheses, law and faith, works and grace, wages and free gift-‘Ye are severed from Christ, ye who would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace’ (Galatians 5:4)
Living (2) - But in the verses following (Isaiah 12:4-6), it was implied that the water so drawn was not to be Israel’s Exclusive possession, but that the salvation which it symbolized was to be communicated to other nations (Isaiah 12:5 ‘let this be known in all the earth,’ Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 )
Solomon - )...
He walked in David's godly ways but there being no one Exclusive temple yet, he sacrificed in high places, especially at the great high place in Gibeon, where was the tabernacle with its altar, while the ark was in Zion
Red Sea - ...
The particulars of this transaction demonstrate, that neither the host of the Israelites, nor the host of Pharaoh, could possibly have passed at the head of the gulf near Suez; where the sea was only half a league broad, according to Niebuhr's own supposition, and consequently too narrow to contain the whole host of Pharaoh at once; whose six hundred chariots alone, Exclusive of his cavalry and infantry, must have occupied more ground
Sabbath - The question respects the will of God as to this particular point,— Whether one day in seven is to be wholly devoted to religion, Exclusive of worldly business and worldly pleasures
Parable - They taught with pride and complacency that the Kingdom of God had reached its final consummation and embodiment in their own Exclusive circle, whereas the message of Christ was to be borne over new areas of progress and expansion until it reached and conquered the uttermost parts of the earth
Oath - Any exceptions to this strongly Exclusive phrase must bear the burden of proof, and to apply it strictly in the meantime is the only natural course, and the precise reverse of ‘hair-splitting’ (T
Philanthropy - But without for the moment setting against these passages others in which the sympathy of Jesus is seen to be as catholic as it was tender, it may very well be argued that these two incidents do not establish Exclusiveness in Christ, and in any case the Exclusiveness broke down and gave way to the very opposite feeling in Him. There could be no finer method of revealing to the disciples the contrast between that Exclusiveness of spirit which He had come to destroy, and the larger trust in the all-comprehending love of God which He came to fulfil. Whether He spoke the words to Nicodemus or not, it is clear that John learnt from Him that the love of God was not the Exclusive privilege of the Jew, but that God loved ‘the world,’ and that His salvation was within the reach of whosoever should believe (John 3:16)
Church - The Popish doctrine is certainly not found in their writings; and so far were they from making provision for the government of this one supposed church, by the appointment of one visible and Exclusive head, that they provide for the future government of the respective churches raised up by them in a totally different manner, that is, by the ordination of ministers for each church, who are indifferently called bishops, and presbyters, and pastors
Food - The food of a typical Hebrew household in historical times was almost Exclusively vegetarian. According to the author of the Priests’ Code, indeed, the food of men and beasts alike was Exclusively herbaceous in the period before the Deluge ( Genesis 1:29 f. Under the simpler conditions of early times the Exclusive source of supply was the householder’s own herd ( Genesis 18:7 ) or flock ( Genesis 27:9 ), his vineyard and oliveyard or his ‘garden of herbs’ ( 1 Kings 21:2 )

Money (2) - ...
On the other hand, the supply of copper money must have been almost, if not quite, Exclusively of native production.

Progress - The religion of the Prophets, which in its ideas, sentiments, and strivings had begun to cross the boundaries of Exclusive nationality, had been changed, as a system of law, as a method of Divine worship and service, as a way of salvation, and as a political ideal, into a narrow, rigid, national institution; and this institution, it was claimed, had a right to exist throughout all ages, although it was, in effect, a wall of separation not only between Jews and Gentiles, but also between the latter and God.

Amos, Theology of - Beneath the surface, it is not the pure form of the worship of Yahweh envisioned in the Pentateuch with its Exclusive devotion to Israel's God and its centralized cult (Exodus 20:2-6 ; Deuteronomy 5:6-10 ; 6:4-5 ; 12:1-13:18 ). ...

John, Theology of - This is a relationship that is Exclusively reserved for Jesus and cannot be shared by others. As Son, he has an Exclusive knowledge of God (6:47; 10:15; 17:25) and therefore enjoys equal glory with God among people (5:23). These are gifts possessed Exclusively by those who belong to Jesus' flock (10:1-10) and which remain mysterious to those in the world, whose domain is darkness. The description of Nicodemus's rebirth focuses Exclusively on spirit, leaving water behind
Eschatology (2) - ]'>[4] have reached on these points the most negative conclusions, do not doubt that in the fatter part of His career, and perhaps habitually, Jesus held the apocalyptic view of the final Kingdom and of the glorious advent of the Messiah; and, even if we exclude the title ‘Son of Man’ from those passages in the Gospels which have no eschatological reference, there remains a sufficient number (about a third of the entire number, Exclusive of John) where the eschatological reference is distinct. ) had in view mainly (we cannot say Exclusively) those Israelites who had sealed their fidelity to the law of Jahweh with their blood, but it may be taken for certain that, long before the time represented by the Gospels, all idea of the blessings of the Kingdom being restricted to members of the holy nation who had suffered death for their fidelity (if such an idea was ever entertained), had completely disappeared
Ascension (2) - The motives, moreover, which prompted the Senate to give each successive emperor a place among the gods, or the Hindu devotee to regard his hero as divine, are easy to trace: in the former instance political; in the latter, religious indeed, but too naïve for the Jew, who had no natural tendency to deify—such a tendency has not been proved, it is incompatible with the Exclusive and stubborn monotheism of the race
Apocalypse - This circumstance alone might warrant the almost Exclusive devotion of this article to an account of this book, but such concentration offers, besides, the advantage of showing the leading features of the apocalyptic style as they appear, so to speak, synthetically, interwoven with an actual situation-a crisis-on which the mind of the apocalyptist reacts

Down to the Roman period at least, this educational Exclusiveness was maintained, and only the sons of those who were full citizens were the subjects of education, although there were cases in which daughters rose to distinction in letters, and even examples of slaves, like the philosopher Epictetus, who burst the restraints of their position and showed themselves capable of rising to eminence in learning and virtue

Arabia - The greater part of this division was more Exclusively the possession of the Midianites, or land of Midian; where Moses, having fled from Egypt, married the daughter of Jethro, and spent forty years keeping the flocks of his father-in-law: no humiliating occupation in those days, and particularly in Midian, which was a land of shepherds; the whole people having no other way of life than that of rearing and tending their flocks, or in carrying the goods they received from the east and south into Phenicia and Egypt. ...
It is not the least singular circumstance in the history of this extraordinary people, that those who, in the enthusiasm of their first successes, were the sworn foes of literature, should become for several ages its Exclusive patrons
Christianity - Nor ought it to be forgotten that the religion to which such numbers were proselyted, was an Exclusive one
Prophet - The apologetic use of prophecy in the past no doubt led to a too Exclusive consideration of this aspect of the prophetic books; and the Church has gained much by regarding the prophets as men inspired by Jehovah with special moral messages to the age in which they lived

Clemens Romanus of Rome - The writer is distinctly a Gentile, and contrasts himself and his readers with the Jewish nation in a manner quite unlike the genuine Clement; and his quotations are not, like Clement's, almost Exclusively from O. , at which time our four gospels were in a position of Exclusive authority
Lutherans - That justification is the effect of faith Exclusive of good works; and that faith ought to produce good works purely in obedience to God, and not in order to our justification; for St. Under the pretext, therefore, of relieving the throbbing breast from its apprehensions, they had recourse to numerous inventions for propping the insecure fabric of penitential hope; asserting, among other extravagancies, that the sacraments are in themselves efficacious by virtue of their own operation, Exclusively of all merit in the recipient; and that the sacrament of the altar, in particular, acts so powerful in this respect as to communicate grace not only to those who partake of it, but to others from whom it is received by substitution, provided its operation be not hindered by confessedly flagrant immorality
Confession - 180,) which relates Exclusively to the reality of Christ's personality and sufferings in opposition to the Docetae, the earliest document of this kind is to be found in the writings of Irenaeus, who flourished toward the end of the second century of the Christian aera. Though the Romish church early appropriated to itself the Exclusive title of catholic, or universal; and though, for many centuries, its unscriptural tenets pervaded the far greater part of Europe; not only were there always some individuals who adhered to the doctrines of genuine Christianity, but, long before the Protestant reformation, there appear to have been whole congregations who maintained, in considerable purity, the substance of the faith contained in Scripture
Palestine - In the heart of the invaded country Jerusalem remained bitterly Exclusive and hostile to all the world, so far as the Pharisees could keep it so.
