WHY THE STORY OF NIMROD PROVES THE TRADITIONAL BIBLICAL TIMELINE IS WRONG

WHO LED THE REBELLION AT THE TOWER OF BABEL?  The conventional view is that it was Nimrod.  This view is elaborated on in the Book of Jasher and in the storytelling of Josephus, the Hebrew historian who wrote his Jewish histories for the Roman world.

But there’s a problem.  The correct biblical timeline provided in the Septuagint (LXX) conveys that Nimrod was likely born 100 years after the Tower of Babel event.  Someone else in his ancestry led the rebellion – his father, Cush.

The Book of Jasher is primarily to blame for the disinformation that has been the foundation … Read More

Update on My Status and Whereabouts

To my followers:

I owe you an apology.  I have been missing in action for almost 3 months and have not informed you about the reason.  This short note seeks to provide that information.

DO DISPENSATIONALISTS UNDERSTAND THE PATH TO ISRAEL’S SALVATION?

It is truly one of the great mysteries in Evangelical Theology: How does the Church relate to Israel?  And how will Israel be saved?

Reformed Theology, aka Covenant Theology, dismisses any future or current salvation for Israel (as a collective). They even speak of Old Testament saints as members of the Church.  As is popularly understood, the Church replaced Israel.  Theirs is “replacement theology.” This generates a post-millennium or Amillennial eschatology.  (And full or partial Preterism – i.e., biblical prophecy has already been fulfilled, all of it by AD 70).

Dispensationalists speak of the Church Age in which God’s focus … Read More

GIANTS, GODS, AND DRAGONS: A HOT SEAT INTERVIEW WITH DEREK GILBERT

It’s now available on YOUTUBE.  The July 28 Episode of THE HOT SEAT!  

I’m very very pleased to have the opportunity to turn the tables and talk with Derek about the recent book that he and his wife Sharon wrote on the ancient gods of the Bible and how learning about their characteristics enhances our understanding of the Bible’s message.

There were many fascinating new points I learned.  One of the most fascinating was discovering that at one point GOD told Moses to turn back with the Children of Israel during their escape from Egypt. He wanted them to spend … Read More
