Sometime in this past hour at 12 PM Pacific Standard Time, we hit a new milestone for our blog Veritas Domain: We have 1.7 million total views!  That’s the total of view since our blog began in 2006 but with most of the hits taking place the last few years.

It was a little over 6 months ago we were at 1.6 million.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was Jesus homeless?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Yes, he had nowhere to sleep.

Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.”” (Matthew 8:20)

No, he had his own house.

When He had come back to Capernaum several days afterward, it was heard that He was at home.” (Mark 2:1)

And it happened that He was reclining at the table in his house, and many tax collectors and sinners were dining with Jesus and His disciples; for there were many of them, and they were following Him.” (Mark 2:15)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

Note: This is a guest post since presently I am overseas.  This is by Daniel M. Klem.  His blog be found here.  This is part of a series he’s doing for his blog!

I have a short series! I am taking you through some of the sayings of Jesus that can be … confusing … difficult … misapplied … whatever!

What does this mean? I will look at passages that I have personally heard misapplied, misunderstood, or simply confusion expressed over what Jesus meant.

Now, what is our passage today?

Judge not …

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
“Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you.”

Matthew 7:1-6, ESV

Perhaps you have heard (or even said yourself) “The Bible says don’t judge!” It is often also said with something along the lines of “Stop judging me” or them.

Obviously, if we tell someone that what they are doing is wrong or may not be good, we are judging that person and condemning them.

But are we judging people?

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few weeks ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 2:8.  Here is my translation:

“καὶ πέμψας αὐτοὺς εἰς Βηθλέεμ εἶπεν· Πορευθέντες ἐξετάσατε ἀκριβῶς περὶ τοῦ
And he sent them to Bethlehem and he said “Go and search carefully for the
