A couple quick updates…

This weekend is the Florida Bible Prophecy conference. I am looking forward to giving four talks on why the Bible does not teach that Jesus can return “at any moment.” I also answer the question what the Bible does teach on what our biblical posture should be in watching for the Lord’s second coming.

Second, since it has been a very busy week I was not able to get out an episode of The Biblical Prophecy Program. In the next week I am finishing my fourth and final comprehensive PhD exam. It was a four month ordeal of a series of exams—not to mention the past four months I have been experiencing the first four months of my son’s birth! So it has been a bit of a whirlwind to say the least with the exigencies of life. And given the last few extremely busy months there has been a bit of a delay on the imminence book. But my aim is to get this book out—finally—this summer!

Thanks for your patience.

 

Regards,

Alan Kurschner

Why Jesus’ Prophecy in Matthew 10:23 Refers to His Second Coming, NOT to His First Coming – Ep. 82

In this episode I gave a few reasons why I believe the reference to the "Son of Man comes" in Matthew 10:23 refers to Jesus' future second coming, not his first coming. “Whenever they persecute you in one place, flee to another. I tell you the … [Continue reading]

Romans 4:13, Israel’s Land, and a Reply to Supersessionism (aka Replacement Theology)

“For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith.” (Romans 4:13) by Michael J. Vlach Romans 4:13 has become a hotly debated verse lately between … [Continue reading]

For ONLY $119.95 You can get “The Book of Mysteries Package”!

I don't know about you, but I am sick of the proliferation of pop-prophecy teachers selling their "mysteries" of the Bible. And it will only get worse, sadly. Evidently, good old fashion exegesis of prophecy passages are old hat. We have to create … [Continue reading]

First Peter 2:9–10 Refers to JEWISH Believers, Not the Church as the ‘New Israel’ – Ep. 81

I responded to a common proof text of supersessionism (aka replacement theology). They teach that because 1 Peter 2:9-10 contains Old Testament references that were originally applied to Israel they should now be re-interpreted to be replaced by the … [Continue reading]
