    IMHO, if we knew the Will of God “perfectly” (which is somewhat ambiguous, but let it pass for the time being), it would be because the love in us for God would be perfect - we would love God as we...

    : shoving oar in : Yes, definitely.

    I doubt the wisdom, and justice, and accuracy as exegesis, of applying general statements like those in Romans 1.18-32, which described Greco-Roman religious...

    Yes. I think they undergo many changes, because those in whom they are present undergo many changes.

    I think our spiritual gifts are whatever Christ has received from His Father, since His Graces are communicated to His members by His Spirit Who is in Him and in them.
    And I take it as fundamental,...

    I think the result, because it is infallibly certain and is known to God, is expressed as though it were the purpose of God. IMHO, the distinction between what result and intention is one we have to...

    1. I think there is something to be said for the theory that James and John both suffered death under Herod in about 44, and may therefore be the Two Witnesses of Rev 11. This would leave John the...

    A Johannine allusion to the Temple in Psalm 27.4 would be beautifully appropriate, since for JGosp Jesus ​is the Eschatological Temple of Ezekiel 47 (St John 7.38, St John 19.34-37; compare St John...

    The predictions of the fall of Jerusalem to Nebuchadnezzar in Ezekiel and Jeremiah seem to qualify - X was prophesied, X took place.
    And sometimes, X was prophesied, and Not-X took place. But that...

    IMO, the post-Resurrection Appearances show space relating to Jesus in a new way - *not* Jesus relating to space - as anticipations of the Ascension.

    It’s much more likely to happen long after the human race has left Earth and moved to Andromeda, Sirius, or somewhere else distant. Say, in 50,000 AD.

    As well as registering the fact of scribal variations, one should also ask *why* a given variation matters. And also, what is the meaning given by each of the variants in a given passage.

    Tiberius and Claudius have had a fairly bad press as well. The Julio-Claudians - IOW, Augustus to Nero inclusive - are the Caesars usually picked on as unstable.

    Jesus was not wrong about the time of His “Return” - I dislike the word, because IMO it prejudges the issue; which IMO, in the study of Scripture especially, should be avoided like the plague. IMHO,...

    It’s analogous to “Pompeiani”, “partisans of Pompey”, or to “Caesariani”, “partisans of Caesar”.

    IOW, it is a political epithet - a “Christianus” is a “partisan/adherent of Christus”. Which might...

    IMO, the passage is a warning against false claimants to Messiahship. If that is correct, it would fit right in with the very strong emphasis in Saint Matthew’s Gospel upon the Davidic Kingship and...
