Dear Mr. Mathison,                                                                                        February 10, 2014

The Contradictions Among the Disciples of Dr. Talbot Concerning the "Scholarly Consensus" of How and When Daniel 12:1-13/Matthew 13:39-43 Will or Has Been Fulfilled

No one can deny that Full Preterism is the organic development (“Reformed and always reforming”) of the reformed orthodox church as it pertains to the time and nature of fulfillment for the judgment and resurrection of Dan. 12:1-4, 7, 13/Matt. 13:39-43 to take place.  These texts would be fulfilled at the end of the “last days” or “end of the age” period:

1) Classic Amillenialism – The resurrection of Daniel 12:2-3 IS the resurrection of Matthew…

Talbotism or Partial Preterism would ask:

Futurist Fiction on the New Creation & the Restoration of the animal creation

I realize that there are differences within futurist views of the New Creation.  However, I am curious about how the animal creation will be "restored" in this hyper-literal fictional story.



For example Sam believes:



That Isaiah 65 is being progressively fulfilled today.  We are in the New Creation kind of sort of - but await a literal passing away and transformation of…

Thoughts on the Articles of Carol A. Hill, "The Worldview Approach to Biblical Interpretation and Origins: What It Is and How It Differs from Accommodation" and Pete Enns, “Adam is Israel”

In the past I have contributed some blog and article content to DID and SGP, but often just don't have the time to read all of the different blogs/articles and interactions that each site has to offer.  I spend most of my time on pretcosmos and trying to follow that list alone takes up a great deal of my time. I have been criticized that I "don't get out much" etc...  But being a single dad does limit my time and commitments on what I can and cannot read - let alone respond…

SAM FROST'S EISEGESIS OF JESUS' PARABLE OF THE MUSTARD SEED - "UNMASKED"

1) From the immediate context

of Matthew 13, why would the progressive sowing and growth of the

mustard seed parable begin/only be inaugurated post AD 70 (in the age

to come) reaching an alleged fulfillment/manifestation at the

end/transformation of the planet earth - while the previous kingdom

parables do not teach this?
