Post Temple Judaism and Christianity: “The Temple of Messiah”

Messianic Good News has posted a wonderful teaching by Peter Cohen, “The second destruction of Jerusalem in 70 C.E., along with the loss of the second temple, marks a watershed in Jewish history, even if not everyone saw it that way at the time … at this point Jews and the nascent Christians each began […]

Basic Doctrine: Christianity 101

Two bizarre stories this evening caught my eye. The first from Bryan Fischer, Bible ignored, grandfather mauled by grizzly: History reveals that God’s covenant with an ancient nation suggests that one of the consequences for a nation which walks in his statues is that it will have nothing to fear from wild animals. “If you […]

Two years ago this month I posted a small series titled The Parable of the Two Trains by Mark Webb, which was the best analogy concerning the relationship between the old and new covenants I’d ever come across. Since then, I’ve not come across any other which is as easy to comprehend. The differences between […]
