What does TAKEN and LEFT BEHIND really mean according to scripture?

I might come back to this but after reading Matthew 24; I am under the impression that taken means slaughtered and left behind means spared. Noah's family was left behind but everyone else was taken.

Agree with you on this. Jesus was prophesying the AD70 destruction of Jerusalem in this part of Matthew 24. The Roman army was the instrument of God's judgement.

And for the pedants, it never says 'left behind', simply 'left'

All praises to FATHER AHAYAH YASHAYAH WA RAACH!

This is in reference to the false doctrine that is being taught.

Taken and left behind.

Scripture validates that:
Taken means death!
Left (left behind) means alive!

Let's use scripture to validate:
Will be back soon

Just a question here to which ever one of you would like to answer.

How many different Greek words are used in the NT and you can include the Hebrew in the OT as well, defines the word "Taken"?

It might be interesting to search this out for "Left" and "Behind".

With the Love of Christ Jesus.

I think on this you are quite correct. Those taken would have been those who were taken by the Roman armies. Remember, Jesus had just told them in verse 16 that when they say these things coming, they were to "flee to the mountains." Those who were 'left' were those who fled to the mountains. They simply left Jerusalem.

A text without a context is a pretext...a lie. What are you believing here? What is the context of this part of Matthew?

Forgot to post scripture so here it is:
All praises to FATHER AHAYAH YASHAYAH WA RAACH!

2 Esdras 13:15-24 [15]Shew mee now yet the interpretation of this dreame. [16]For as I conceiue in mine vnderstanding, woe vnto them that shall be left in those dayes; and much more woe vnto them that are not left behinde. [17]For they that were not left, were in heauinesse. [18]Now vnderstand I the things that are layde vp in the latter dayes, which shall happen vnto them, and to those that are left behinde. [19]Therefore are they come into great perils, and many necessities, like as these dreames declare. [20]Yet is it easier for him that is in danger, to come into these things, then to passe away as a cloud out of the world, and not to see the things that happen in the last dayes. And he answered vnto me, and said, [21]The interpretation of the vision shal I shew thee, and I wil open vnto thee, the thing that thou hast required. [22]Wheras thou hast spoken of them that are left behinde, this is the interpretation. [23]He that shall endure the perill in that time, hath kept himselfe: they that be fallen into danger, are such as haue workes, and faith towards the Almightie. [24]Know this therefore, that they which be left behinde, are more blessed then they that be dead.

Try giving us your input from a recognizable book. A book we can look at for ourselves. What book is this from anyway?
Ok....The book of Esdras is not considered cannonical. So now.....?

This is from the APOCRAPHA
2ND ESDRAS. These original BIBLE BOOKS are available to everyone. Also download the app, I have and use both.

What I don't do is allow those people who out of FEAR labelled those BIBLE books canon to try to persuade people from reading them. I obey no one but AHAYAH YASHAYAH WA RAACH!
Each of those BOOKS are a BLESSING my friend!
