1. I would like to get information and some biblical references about Esau.

2. I would like to know if the apostle Paul was married, since he was a member of the Sanhedrin.

3. How old was Paul when Jesus appeared to him?

4. What did Simon, the former sorcerer of Samaria, ask Peter and John? Did he ask them to give him the Holy Spirit, as some say?

5. Who are the Gentiles?

6. Why are there people whose skin colour is different from ours? Is it because of a curse?

7. In the 27th chapter of the book of Genesis it is written part of the story of Esau and Jacob. I ask you, 'Why did their mother Rebekah show favouritism loving Jacob more than Esau? Why did she prompt Jacob to deceive Isaac, who was her husband and whom she loved and respected so much? It is true that Esau had sold his birthright, but it is also true that he was a hard worker, unlike Jacob who did nothing but make himself cuddled by his mother.

8. Was Judas Iscariot a believer before he betrayed the Lord?

9. Genesis 4:17 (And Cain knew his wife ) Who were the parents of Cain's wife? What's her name? Could she be the daughter of Eve and the sons of God we find in Genesis 6:2? Why does the Bible mention only the three sons of Adam?

10. I would like to know whether - according to you - John the Baptist was Elijah or not?

11. Some pastors teach that Paul took the place of Judas Iscariot, and so he became one of the twelve apostles; is that true?
