Who’s Confused?

sola scriptura

Some of my Bible Commentaries suppose the Apostles were somewhat confused about Jesus’ coming and of the end of the age (both of which futurists posit yet to be fulfilled). Some even come right out and say the Apostles were mistaken to phrase their question in the manner in which it is recorded in the Synoptics. Obviously, the Apostles believed the destruction of the Temple, Jesus’ coming into his Kingdom and the end of the age were events that occurred simultaneously, which, if true, the futurists’ argument is debunked, because the scriptures never speak of a third coming of Christ, nor do they speak of a second Second Coming. Therefore, futurists **must** argue for more than one question in Matthew 24:3. Read the rest of this entry »

Approximately one year earlier the Apostles were sent out on a similar mission, but their labor was to cast seed for growth. Now the harvest has come. Time was given for the good seed to bear fruit, and what the fields have yielded must be brought in for the Lord of the harvest. Read the rest of this entry »

Jesus’ Third Passover

Because Luke doesn’t clearly show Jesus celebrating another Passover between John’s death and Jesus’ own crucifixion, many scholars believe Jesus set out to go to Jerusalem for the final time in Luke 9:51. Nevertheless, there are problems with this interpretation, and I believe that folks often skew the Scriptures in order to maintain this doctrine. Read the rest of this entry »
