If you want to believe that, fine. But the problem would be that the Jews who escaped from Masada happened after the resurrection of Christ. Making it impossible to be the Nephites or Lamanites, DUH!!! Epic Fail, Mr. Science, who apparently can't tell time. Where exactly did you get your edumacation, Jethro? Who's the "HICK" now? LOL!!!<quoted text>
HERE'S ANOTHER LOOK at the STOMPING your anti-science, pro-protestant HILLBILLY LYING EXPEDITION got you this round.
Tell us about the MAN who WRESTLED the man who became ISRAEL, Jacob;
whose NAME was ELOHIM
who WASN'T a MAN
WASN'T WRESTLING with Jacob
because that doesn't fit into your FANTASY about THERE BEING NO EVIDENCE
ELOHIM aka God the Father
IS A MAN
who HAS a BODY.
EXPLAIN to the WHOLE FORUM AGAIN WHY THAT ISN'T RIGHT,
because YOU SAID GOD ISN'T A MAN,
because YOU SAID GOD DOESN'T HAVE A BODY according to GOD
because YOU SAID GOD isn't called ELOHIM by the bible.
Elohim, you biblical moron, isn't a proper name for God. It is Just the Hebrew word used for "God". Even when the Old Testament referred to false gods, they use the word "elohim" for the term "gods".
Example: Jeremiah 7:9
English: Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery and swear falsely, and offer sacrifices to Baal and walk after OTHER GODS that you have not known,
430 [e] "ĕ·lō· hîm" אֱ 00;ֹה& #1460;֥י ם gods
Ask any Jew, and they will tell you that the proper for God is "YWHW" or "Yahweh
If Jacob wrestled with God, he was wrestling with Jesus, who was Jehovah of the old Testament.
Good luck with that "Elohim" story.
