THE RABBIS CORRUPTED THEIR OWN BIBLE IN THE FIRST CENTURY?

This post includes a letter originating in the United Kingdom from a supportive evangelist there.  It also includes the interview I did 3 days ago on the Rabbis corrupting the Tanakh circa 100 A.D., to reduce the number of Jews converting to Christianity and to create a new Greek Old Testament to replace the Septuagint in the synagogues throughout the diaspora as the second century A.D. was getting going.


The LXX plainly showed that Jesus fulfilled messianic prophecy and as Messiah, had a mission to bring the Gentiles into the people of God. Neither were ideas that the Pharisees-cum-rabbis wanted … Read More

A BRIEF BUT POWERFUL SUMMARY OF WHY THE BIBLE PROVIDES AN ACCURATE HISTORY

PRETERISM VS. FUTURISM… WHO GETS ESCHATOLOGY RIGHT?

Noted author, screenwriter, and speaker, Brian Godawa appeared with me today on the Parker J. Cole’s show “Parker’s Comparables”.  We discussed and debated which understanding of eschatology Best fits the prophetic assertions of the Bible. It was a fast 120 minutes exploring the Olivet Discourse, Matthew 24, Jesus’ predictions for what would happen within a generation of his pronouncements and, from my point of view, beyond.


Today was Parker’s birthday and she indicated that our coming together to discuss the topic was our gift to her.  Of course, Brian and I may benefit most by becoming acquainted and by learning … Read More
