    I was more thinking about the steps leading to the appearing of the Messiah.
    Maybe there is more to this than simply "the woman sinned; the Messiah came."

    I'm curious why any specific journalist in Finland would be targeted just for doing articles about Russian trolls. How did she identify that people in Russia were hounding her? And is this hounding...

    It would be an odd twist if the fake news in Finland is coming from a source other than its own media and its own government, as is so common in today's European countries.

    You are contradicting yourself. On one hand you are saying that the oral traditions proceeded the written form. On the other, you are saying that the only source for people to develop written...

    It would be interesting to see if such fulfillments are only in Matthew, as the Jewish-focused gospel. If only in Matthew, we may have rough confirmation of the idea that some of these were...

    one thing I heard ( a long time ago) was that the Jews had formed many expectations or requirements that they expected to be characteristic of the Messiah. So we might expect this of passages such...

    Is such form of interpretation thought to exclude the sense that certain prophecies were being overtly fulfilled in Christ?

    I recall Wright saying that Jesus accomplished what the Jewish people were supposed to do.

    It is almost okay to say that the law was to prepare Israel for the coming of the Messiah. But the law...

    The Google books site has an extensive preview of this book. I was looking at some passages throughout Romans. Pretty much, the text provided nearly standard commentary content.

    Commonly, claims of Paul making errors or writing badly or Paul "winging it" tend to occur by people who misunderstand what Paul is saying. Paul often seems to be quoting scriptures which he has...

    I missed the statement about differences in reference to Zion between "out" and "to." This seems a trivial distinction. If we equate Jerusalem and Zion, then we can say that Jesus both had gone to...

    I can't see any clear response to Enns in the comments by Wilren/Wright. Wright highlights some important doctrines (like our ultimate resurrection) but his metanarratives often seem off the mark. ...

    I probably should have said that his call to a Gentile mission was with a strong degree of irony (a big twist). Paul, as a...
