But they have been repeated so often that millions have assumed that they must be soundly biblical.Continue reading“Joe Crews, The Secret Rapture (2008)”
It has been a standard feature of Christian preaching through the ages that the Roman destruction of Jerusalem in 70 was really God’s decisive punishment of the Jewish people for their rejection of Jesus, who had died around the year 30.Continue reading“Preterism Study Archive”
