Re: New Year 2017 years after what?

Speaking of New Years, it's interesting that according to the research of Dr. Ernest Martin, now being popularized by attorney Rick Larson, there is evidence from astronomy that Jesus was born near sunset at literally the very beginning of Jewish New Year and the Festival of Trumpets in 3 B.C. Sound...

Recommendations for Resources on Typology via Etymology?

Does anyone have any recommendations for preterist resources that explore the typological significance of biblical events based on the etymology, homographs and homophones of the words employed in the accounts? I believe the spiritual significance of much apocalyptic imagery in the biblical record c...

Re: Zechariah 14:3

TruthInLove, The nature of this fighting would also seem to be spiritual... The abrupt transition from understanding "the nations" in verse 2 as being about the Roman army in a physical war during 70 AD, to "those nations" being about a spiritual war, that extends to modern times, is somewhat diffi...

Re: Daniel's last 3 Kingdom's as Media, Persia, and Greece

I'm reviving this post in response to an inquiry from Zechariah 14:3 The idea of conquering through the gospel seems attractive given Daniel 2:44. I would respectfully disagree with Steve and others who see this portion of Daniel as a reference to a period of Roman domination. Despite being a minori...

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 ...
