    Golgotha, Gethsemane, Kidron, Hinnom, and the Gihon Spring are all outside the gates and walls but are still considered part of Jerusalem.

    No. It also says that while bound in the pit he cannot deceive the nations.

    Yes they should. But to say that it is metaphorical is impotent and meaningless. The metaphorical interpretation of the coming of Jesus at the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70 is exactly the point...

    It can be argued that the dispensation of miracles ended with the passing of the apostles and those whom the apostles had laid their hands upon. This would include the closing of the canon which was...

    Cause? No. I said that they coincided.

    A working framework from a preterist/postmillenial-type perspective has Satan bound in AD 70 or shortly thereafter (Rev 20). This coincides closely with the apparent suspension of the miraculous age...

    I guess my point is that this expectation is largely a product of a premillenial/futurist eschatology and perhaps also a Calvinist persuasion of total hereditary depravity. If this...

    Briefly, I think that the language in 1 Th 5 is very similar in tone and content to the language in Mt 24 and Lk 21 which can be tied to the destruction of Jerusalem and with the judgement and reward...

    I too tend to view Titus and Vespasian in a pretty positive light as Caesars go and I hold the work of Josephus to be a work of integrity. But just for arguments sake let me pose a bizzare scenario. ...

    I think you might be confusing the death of Vespasian with the death of Nero. Vespasian was emperor from 69 to 79, until well after the Judean campaign. I don't know offhand where Titus was when he...
