Recently, we at Nehr HaOlam were asked, “What says the Bible about religious icons?” To me, it seems as if though many refrain from saying the word “idol” because of its implications. Granted, many are familiar with the Ten Commandments when it says, “You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea” (Exodus 20:4, NLT). So instead of hearing questions like, “Is it permissible to have an idol?” questions are being reworded with “Is it permissible to possess a religious icon” with the subtle implication that an icon differs from an idol.
During our recent Bible study “My Salvation Is On The Way,” the question was asked, “What was the witness that was accounted for when Yeshua was being baptized in the Jordan River?” In order to answer this question, we had to review what the Scriptures had to say.
