And the folk of Jerusalem must make many varied and strange gestures, as people who are terrified by these marvels that they see above them. Then Ysacar says to Ysmael, in a very frightened manner.. Continue reading “Eustache Marcadé: Mystère de la Vengeance de Nostre Seigneur Ihesu Crist (1465)”

- These files have been assembled over the last 20 years, and the archive is still ,growing. All are welcomed to take advantage of this folder’s centuries of knowledge related to first century studies and fulfilled prophecy.
All of this rich and exacting observation is subordinated to the dramatic moment—albeit understated: the news recounted in the dispatch. Vespasian, seated on a painted chair lined with a leopard skin, is illuminated by an unseen light source to his left.

“allegorical logic suggests that the play is set during the Roman‐Jewish War.”
Manuscript, written by one scribe, on parchment, probably in London, either in the late 15th century, or at the beginning of the 16th. It is one of the most elaborately decorated medieval manuscripts. Its importance also lies in its connection to the Royal households of Henry VII and Henry VIII.

Stein then argues, however, that the darkening of the heavens and the seeing of the Son of Man coming in clouds belong to a final parousia event, when history as we know it is brought to an end. Continue reading “Andrew Perriman: Jesus, the Temple and the Coming of the Son of Man (2015)”

I think we need to distinguish between full preterism and hyper-preterism. Full preterism is an optimistic eschatology. Don’t think I can say the same thing about hyper-preterism, which has led some right out of Christianity.

The Romans were also masters of smashing down any defenses that got in their way. Forget siege as a passive process of starving out an enemy, the Romans were more proactive than that, armed with a plethora of impressive machines to prize open recalcitrant cities.

Of particular note for today is Clarence Larkin’s 1920 rendition of “Daniel and Revelation Compared” which includes a masterfully drafted version of the fourfold-metal image from Nebuchadnezzar’s (Neb) dream (Dan. 2), complete with a mind-numbing dispensational distortion to the picture forced by Larkin’s dispensationalism.
