I challenge you, if you are a believer in the Second Coming of Christ, to read the full article and consider its implications for your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.]

False Prophets Pick Dates

When any notable advocate for the apocalyptic teaching of the Bible stoops to predict a date for ‘the end of the world as we know it,’ it peaks the interest of the press.  This past month we saw yet another example … Read More

WHY IS THE GAP BETWEEN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS DIFFERENT FOR CHRISTIANS THAN FOR JEWS?

Most of my followers know that there is a period of over 400 years between the writings of the Old and New Testament.  In reality, it may span almost 500 years. The last Old Testament prophet was Malachi who wrote approximately circa 450-400 B.C. (and by the way, he may have been Ezra according to some scholars). The first New Testament book was written about 50 A.D., or slightly before, either by Paul, James, or John Mark.  This period is also known as the “Second Temple Period” in which numerous apocryphal and pseudepigraphal writings were written.  And, also, the story Read More

I BET YOU DON’T KNOW WHO WROTE JUDGES, KINGS, AND CHRONICLES.

Summary:  The conventional biblical timeline is presented in the King James Bible and was supported by the work of Bishop Ussher in his magnum opus, Annals of the World. But does his work stand up to scrutiny from both biblical and secular scholars?  There is much debate. I touch on that debate here, pointing out the distinction between the creation of the universe and the creation of humankind. the pivotal issue has to do with whether the Masoretic Text’s chronology or the Septuagint’s chronology is correct. What does the Septuagint teach that Read More

A FUN BUT POWERFUL INTERVIEW – CANARY CRY RADIO

AFTER THE RAPTURE, WHAT COMES NEXT?


Two of my favorite  interviewers are Gonzo Shimura and Basil Rosewater. Their show, Canary Cry Radio, is both humorous and deep. These cool guys deal with some of the most intriguing “fringe” issues on the minds of Christian apologists today.

Co-author Gray Huffman and I enjoy being interviewed by these “two guys with a mic” discussing our book, The Revealing, whose depth and topics caught them somewhat by surprise.  There is a lot to talk about and there are quite a few moments of humor along the way.

[The Revealing has Read More
