    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…

    This essay will demonstrate that the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is historically accurate. In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul states the “first importance” in Christianity is that Christ died for our sins, He was buried, He rose on the third day, and He appeared to 500+ people after his resurrection. If these things did not happen then Christianity would be false. The resurrection of Jesus is historically accurate and has proofs that back it up. This will be demonstrated by science,…

    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. Paul titles his teachings “the gospel I preached you” (1 Corr 15:1), which is strong indication of the emphasis and passion he puts forth in issues of such particular nature. He is aware of his following within the community and understands that his teaching has a crucial…

    Corinthians 15: 29-24

    Paul wrote what he did. He had received word that the church of Corinth did not believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead at the return of Jesus. The question at hand is whether or not those who place their faith in Christ will be resurrected at Christ's return. This is is evident earlier in verse 12 when Paul asked “how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?” Paul uses the arguments given in verses 29-32 as grounds for verses 33 and 34. In verse 29 Paul begins with…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Some of these beliefs include the belief in God, the words of the prophets, God gave the law to Moses, and there will be a resurrection of the good “in the world to come”. One belief that is somewhat debated is the immortality and the resurrection of the dead. Many believe that immortality comes from acting virtuously, living on through your children, and leaving behind a charitable contribution to the world. There are different beliefs among Jews regarding their role in life. Some believe…
