Re: Isaiah 10:12 explaining -- punish the fruit ... king of Assyria

my stupid. I posted this item before. However, it seems an important contribution to help understand Paul's use of Isa 10 from Romans 9. Jess, in that earlier post, mentioned that Assyria was still around when Isaiah was alive. So i might miss that aspect. I probably heard that the prophecy could no...

Re: A new movie... from me

The trailer looks good. you introduced us to a mystery.

Do you have distribution and licensing arranged? Will this go to a festival or what is next?

Isaiah 10:12 explaining -- punish the fruit ... king of Assyria

Isa 10:12 (NASB) So it will be that when the Lord has completed all His work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, He will say, “I will punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria and the pomp of his haughtiness. This is an idea i figured out years ago and decided to share it. The passag...

Re: Did the writer to the Hebrews use the nominative case as a vocative?

I don't have any personal knowledge on this but thought to check a commentary for you. (I forget how much you rely on commentaries.) This may help a little for those curious about the issue you raise. The Hermeneia makes this observation on Heb 1:8 Although it may have involved an address to the kin...

Romans 1-2 and Nathan's Parable to David

I recently completed a Masters Thesis showing how Romans 1:18-2:2 is similar to Nathan's approach to David (2 Sam 12). The thesis discussion was narrow and didn't give opportunity to show that Rom 1:18-32 had best described Jews. It was good to hear that Steve's audio series on Romans describes Rom ...

Re: The faith OF Jesus Christ

No one has really dealt with the wording in Gal 2:16 We have "so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ" The quick paraphrase is that we have come to have faith in Christ in order that we would be justified by that faith. The act of faith brought forth the...

Re: The faith OF Jesus Christ

I wanted to point out (without any change of view from my original post) that many scholars, such as NT Wright, translate the genitive as faithfulness of Christ rather than faith of Christ. So most of the debate has been against or for the 'faithfulness of Jesus' proposal. I was checking my notes fo...

Re: The faith OF Jesus Christ

There is an ambiguity between the meaning of 'faith in Jesus' and 'faithfulness of Jesus.' Such ambiguity appears perfect for the application to trust in Christ. I am strongly in favor of priority of "faith in Jesus" with enhancement sense that our trust is derived from the faithfulness of Jesus. Th...

Re: Sharing a Paper in March

Congrats! Hopefully we will see it in the essay section one of these days or you can link to it. I'd be interested in seeing it whenever you are ready to offer it to the general public. That passage is on the docket for me this semester as one I have to consider in a larger project. You said that y...
