Re: Zechariah 14:3

Hi thrombomodulin, I personally don't believe that Jerusalem in this passage refers to earthly Jerusalem or exclusively to the events surrounding 70 A.D. For starters, Zechariah 14:14 tells us that the battle and plague will result in the collecting of the "wealth of all the surrounding nations" wit...

Re: Reconciling the Flight to Egypt with Luke 2

One question I have is why were Joseph and Mary planning on going back to Bethlehem at all. Had it really become home for them in the 6 months (give or take a few months) that they were there? Unlike Herod, perhaps they were or later became aware of Micah's prophecy that the Messiah would come from...

Re: Evidence for Creation

Hi Paidion, Thanks for both of these posts. Both observations are interesting and encouraging. In thinking about the dancing bee, I wonder if, as God was designing the honey bee, he had in mind any of the events that would transpire in Deborah's life. As you probably know, Deborah means 'bee'. Inter...

Re: Were James and John Jesus' first cousins?

Hi Terry, While this is certainly a reasonable possibility, I don't think it could be demonstrated conclusively from scripture. I found the post and visitor comments at the following link helpful in my study on this topic. http://www.forerunner.com/blog/jesus-cousins-were-the-apostles-james-and-john...

Re: Glenn Peoples on Apollumi

As far as they go, I think his points are valid. I don't however think they go as far as he seems to think they do. :) I don't see how these points, valid as they may be, tell us anything about the existence or lack of consciousness of the spirits of the unsaved after death. Even if we grant that ap...

Re: What set Israel's children apart from Abraham's/Isaac's?

Israel's significance extended to ALL his offspring; i.e., the families of Israel's children formed a single, cohesive nation under God. Hi David, Are we sure this statement is accurate? I'm not sure if Israel himself really envisioned this on the basis of God's promise. For instance, consider the ...

Re: Recommendations for quality small group video material?

Okay. Not sure if any of these would be along the lines of what you'd like to show but I've found these films to be engaging as well.

Re: The need for infallible revelation?

Thanks Singalphile. I appreciate your response. I think you gathered the gist of my question and spoke to it. I apologize if I wasn't clear. To put it another way, it seems like many disagreements between brethren regarding the Canon of Scripture, Inerrancy of Scripture, Church Authority, Church Uni...

Hi Ryan, I'm not sure if Intelligent Design is a subject your group would be interested in but Illustra Media has some really interesting videos and the production quality is fantastic. https://illustramedia.com/productions/ Are there any particular subjects you think your group would be interested ...

The need for infallible revelation?

People in general seem to feel that God has chosen to judge an individual's fitness for an enjoyable after-life based on that person's adherence to some specific and universally discernible measuring stick (e.g. teachings of past or present representatives, scientific methods, deductions from aprior...
