  • The Pros And Cons Of Realized Eschatology

    Nevertheless, these still aid in proving how unreasonable this teaching is. Firstly, if King is correct, then marriage has not existed since A.D. 70. Jesus clearly taught in Matthew 22:23-30 and Luke 20:27-35 that after the resurrection marriage no longer exists. With this in mind, if “Realized Eschatology” is true, millions of married couples have been committing fornication! Another unforeseen problem in this doctrine is the Lord’s supper. The Bible states to partake of the emblems to “shew the Lord’s death till he come” (1 Corinthians 11:26). If we are only to observe this memorial until Christ returns and he has already returned (according to this false teaching), then there is no need to continue this practice. However, the proponents of this teaching still partake of these emblems, proving the hypocrisy and error in this doctrine. Finally, this perverse interpretation of prophecy eliminates virtually all of the hope that is characteristic of Christianity. With no resurrection or second coming of the Lord in the future, what is there to look forward to? Further, with no impending judgment or destruction of the physical world, what deterrent is there from someone simply doing “that which is right in his own eyes” (Judges…

  • Paul's View On Life After Death

    The three earliest letters of Paul combined present an in depth view of life after death and resurrection of Christ. This essay will aim to uncover texts of particular relevance through 1 Thessalonians 4 and 1 Corinthians 15.

  • Pentecost: The Power Of The Holy Spirit

    James D G Dunn notes: “The epochal significance of Pentecost raises the whole course of salvation-history to a new plane ….In one sense, therefore, Pentecost can never be repeated - for the new age is here and cannot be ushered in again. But in another sense Pentecost, or rather the experience of Pentecost, can and must be repeated in the experience of all who would become Christians.” Dunn is effectively saying that in order to witness for Jesus Christ today, just as the disciples…

  • The Empty Tomb In The Gospel Of Jesus

    questions—which Habermas says, makes your case (Strobel 64). Paul was an apostle of Jesus, and in his letter to Corinth, he says that he personally saw the resurrected Jesus two separate times. 1 Corinthians 9:1, “Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord?” (New King James Version). And in 1 Corinthians 15:8, “Last of all he appeared to me also.” What is also very interesting is that all of the disciples tell the same story of the resurrection, the same gospel. They could have easily…

  • John 8 Conflict Between Jesus And The Judeans

    John 8: John 8 is going to show us a further conflict between Jesus, and the Judeans. While the initial conflict takes place between Jesus and the Pharisees, he will be attacked by a larger group of general Judeans (8:31). Chapter 8 represents the growing enmity between Jesus and people, other than the disciples, who have potential to follow him. He becomes more and more bold throughout the chapter, being able to confidently assert himself as a child of God, and not as an adversarial force…

  • Personal Narrative: Jesus As A Way Of Life

    By Christology standards and ideals, Jesus is more of an idea, a way of life than an actual human being. To explain further, all I simply mean is that the reason Christianity is followed is not because of the mythology behind it. It is because of the message it spreads, the positivity it spreads around the globe. It’s a way of life, therefore many people can interpret this way of life through their own perspective. Thier own experiences, which if you have faith, you can say that these…

  • An Analysis Of Gautama's Death

    Moody is dead. Don’t believe a word of it. I will be more alive than I am now. I will be in the presence of my Lord. Just before he died, during one of those brief moments of consciousness, he said, “I see the heavens open and the earth receding. I see the faces of the dear children. Oh! This is my triumph. This is my coronation day.” But for those who are not in Christ, resurrection from the dead is for judgment and consignment to eternal punishment. The Bible teaches that God has set a day to…

  • Paul's Claim Of Life After Death Essay

    If Christ was not raised from the dead, Christianity is futile. That claim is not founded upon logical reasoning, but is Paul’s claim in 1 Corinthians 15; that if Christ was not raised, the apostles preaching was in vain, faith is in vain, and we are still in our sins. Indeed, Christianity hinges on the reality that Jesus died and was raised—never to experience death again. Left on its own, there is nothing revolutionary about the claim of life after death, nearly every religion attempts to…

  • The Resurrection Of Jesus: A Case Study

    During class, we had the discussion over the resurrection of Jesus and the facts to go along with it. Believing in the resurrection is easy because there were up to 500 eyewitnesses, there was a powerful movement with Jesus, many martyrs, and opponents could not produce a body (UCF Class Discussion, 11/3/16). In this case study, this person does not think people need to believe in the resurrection of Christ to be a Christian when I know very well that is false. There are six main topics that can…
