"Go to now, ye rich men..." Josephus interprets James 5:1-6

I pulled up Steve's lecture on this section and listened to it. For the most part, he correctly placed the context of James 5 in the pre-AD 70 state of affairs for James' readers. However, there are a few more details needed to fill in the particular events that James wrote about in this passage con...

Re: “Gog and Magog” in Ezekiel and Revelation

An older post, but still a good one. I firmly hold to Steve's #4 interpretation of the Gog and Magog event, from a preterist understanding of these things. The Gog / Magog prophecy has already been completely fulfilled, with names, dates, and nationalities involved in this battle that all refer to t...

Re: Did the apostle John write Revelation?

Hi again Paidion, Didn't mean to ignore your comment - been working on a custom-drapery deadline. You know, I may be one of the few who still has job security in the after-life. All those "windows of heaven" need draperies, I'm thinking...Dorcas the seamstress and I get to work on them for all etern...

Re: Did the apostle John write Revelation?

Hi Paidion, If you don't have a problem with wandering far afield from your original topic, I certainly don't mind meandering here and there over the landscape. All God's judgments remedial? In a sense, yes, because God's judgment of all the wicked perishing in judgment is remedial for God's univers...

Re: Did the apostle John write Revelation?

Hi Paidion, Sorry this response is belated; I had out-of-town family visiting. After reading through your comment, as usual there are things we would both agree on, and other points where we would not. I guess the critical point where our views would diverge is based on what motives we would each at...

Re: Paul...the CHIEF SINNER???

Bumping this up to the top in order to offer an interpretation of the word "CHIEF" that swings in a totally different direction than the previous comments... The Greek word in this context is " protos ", which carries the sense of being the "FIRST". Why should this sense be understood instead of Pau...

Re: Did the apostle John write Revelation?

Hello Paidion, The question you propose about a sovereign God's operations juxtaposed with man's freedom of choice is actually several questions in one. #1) "Does God, the creator of all things visible and invisible, have a RIGHT to step in and predestine actions that His creation carries out?" As c...

Re: Did the apostle John write Revelation?

Hi Paidion, I guess it's understandable that some consider these issues as less vital than "the weightier matters of the law, justice, mercy, and faith" (Matt. 23:23). The longer I study my Bible, though, the more I am convinced that there is virtually nothing in it that is not of "momentous importa...

Re: Did the apostle John write Revelation?

Hi again Paidion, Oh dear, hope you don't mind another tediously long answer here. You have the advantage over me, in that you have been posting here for much, much longer than I have, and people have become familiar with your viewpoint over time. People don't know where I'm coming from, so I have t...

Re: Did the apostle John write Revelation?

Hi Paidion, Love this subject. I suppose in your studies you have probably read the paragraph by Papias quoted in Eusebius' work that distinguishes between the "sons of Zebedee" (James and John), and one other whom Papias called "the presbyter John", one of the disciples of the Lord. I wonder if it'...
