Glorification

Glorification

By Dan Bergman It had been a long time since God Himself breathed into his nostrils – 935 years to be exact. He had gotten old, weak, and sickly. The depravity of his own nature had taken a great toll, and was about to deal its final blow. He had seen the...

ORTHODOX JUDAISM

ORTHODOX JUDAISM

CONSERVATIVE JUDAISM

CONSERVATIVE JUDAISM

ORTHODOX JUDAISM

THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES

WHEN WAS JESUS BORN?

ZECHARIAH

by Dr. Keith Megilligan Zechariah is simply identified to us as a “prophet” in 1:1. His time for living and ministry are given in Ezra 6:14 – “And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet...

DANIEL

By Rev. Dan Bergman It was 605 BC, the third year of King Jehoiakim’s reign. Daniel was a boy living in Jerusalem. Some say he was a teenager, but the Hebrew simply doesn’t support it. He had to have been younger. He was most likely of royal descent. He...

ISAIAH

BIBLICAL DISPENSATIONS

Dispensations and Israel – PRESENT

Dispensationalism and Israel – PAST

Dispensations and Israel – FUTURE

IDENTIFYING THE MESSIAH – WHO? HOW?

ISRAEL’S FALSE MESSIAHS

by Dan Bergman The idea of a coming Messiah is central to the teachings of the Hebrew Scriptures. Within them, there are a plethora of prophecies describing all manner of specific details regarding the person of the Messiah, the Anointed One. In fact, we can find a...

MESSIAH: PROPHET, PRIEST AND KING

By Ken Symes In the Old Testament economy there were three classes of public servants: prophets, priests and kings. All appointed to one of these offices were consecrated by being anointed with oil (prophet, 1 Kings 19:16b; priest, Exodus 28:41; king, 1 Samuel 15:1)....

MESSIANIC EXPECTATIONS IN ISRAEL

by Dr. Keith Megilligan Messianism thrives on suffering. Abba Hillel Silver The Jews of history anticipated the coming of the Messiah with various historical “triggers” which set off calculations as to when the Messiah’s return would be or could be expected. In fact,...

JACOB: SCOUNDREL OR SAINT?
