Some believe the "book of life" is different from the "Lambs book of life. What say you and why?

If two, what is the difference between them that Jesus should make the difference? Here is what I am getting at:

Exodus 32:31–33 (KJV 1900)
"And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin—; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book". No Jesus in this.



However, we have this:

Revelation 3:4–6 (KJV 1900)
"Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." In this example we see Jesus making the declaration.

One book.

Jesus' earthly ministry was centuries in the future in Exodus.

Read into the context of each and it should become clear.

Then how could Exodus 32:32,33 have any significance?

The book of life is the book of life, is it not? So given Jesus was not factored in this exchange between God and Moses to make it that it might be called the "Lamb's book of Life", how did anyone get their name into the one in question __ without Him?

Not sure the term "Lamb" was used in the OT regarding the Book of Life.

I do think there is one book of life. However there are other books per Revelation 21:27.

How did anyone get their name in that book? Faith in God - and a relationship with God. Abraham believed God, and it was credited to Him as righteousness.

The bible is ONE VOLUME. The Bible is.. The Book of Life! That should answer all of your questions. If you have any doubts; Read the Bible again & again.

I guess you missed this...Revelation 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.


"that true believers would not try to take away or add to the Bible.

The bible is all about Jesus Christ; He is the main character of every book in the entire bible - That is the Lamb's book of life.

There is only one book. Get over it!
