    The predictions of the fall of Jerusalem to Nebuchadnezzar in Ezekiel and Jeremiah seem to qualify - X was prophesied, X took place.

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

    Those would not be miracles.

    They would be applications, of natural processes accessible to man, within human power to operate as human being judged fit.

    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.

    There is no indication of time in the passage. I’ve always *assumed* that, as Amos was prophesying in the Northern Kingdom, Israel, those words apply to life in the Northern Kingdom. I think it...

    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...

    1. Unless God exists, God cannot be judged. Because a God who does not do anything and who has no attributes, cannot be judged.

    Why the “otherwise” ? How could God be sought, if He did not arouse those who seek Him, to do so ? But if God does that in them, how is that not a sign of His love and mercy, goodwill and favour...
