Why the Bible Teaches a Literal, Physical Temple (Naos) in 2 Thessalonians 2:4, Not a Figurative, Spiritual Temple – Ep. 23

Responding to Historicism on Matthew 24:15–31

I wrote this piece  about three years ago and I want to repost it because it is important in that it refutes the most common interpretation of the Olivet Discourse on the issue of the relationship between the abomination of desolation and the parousia of Christ. https://www.alankurschner.com/2011/12/04/eutheos-immediately-in-matthew-2429-undermines-historicism/

A Literal ‘Antichrist’

An excerpt taken from my book Antichrist Before the Day of the Lord: There is a broad and narrow sense of the term “antichrist.” The broad theological sense is defined by the apostle John, who writes, “Who is the liar but the person who denies that Jesus is the Christ?
