Every message Kefa preached, the company he kept, and the great works of faith the the Almighty accomplished through him are herein recorded.
This 300 page volume has been 'hidden' in the back of an obscure volume of the "Church Fathers" all this time.
I think you will appreciate the honesty with which they lay out the problem and the freshness of their proposal for the delay of the parousia (Greek for “appearing” or “arrival” and is used in theological studies to refer to the Second Coming). He is currently Professor of New Testament at the Biblical Seminary of Colombia, where he serves as a missionary of United World Mission. ” *Cut to a music video of DC Talk singing At this, a senior scholar arched an eyebrow and pointedly replied, “Ja, and I think this shows a disturbing lack of attention to theological progress.” The subtext of this rebuke was this: Jesus has not come back, so it’s time for theology to move on without the parousia. In our next post, my buddy Casey will don the white Stetson and begin to explain the solution we’ve proposed. Obviously, scholars have suggested other solutions, but none have struck me as satisfying. However, Mark -38 indicates that the coming of the Son of Man is a , rather than ascending to rule in heaven after his death. So, insofar as I don’t think that the judgment transpired during the first century, it’s hard to take refuge in Wright’s thesis.
In this first post, I am going to put on my black hat and describe the problem of the delay of Jesus’ return. And since we are still here, it seems like he was pretty wrong! It’s an intriguing possibility, since Mark definitely alludes to Daniel , in which the “one like a son of man coming” is indeed enthroned in heaven. And both Mark -9:1 and -31 say that the coming in judgment is supposed to occur within a generation.

For example, Galatians was often thought to have been a very early book yet it contains the mature Paul of Romans, so even many years ago I believed that Galatians was not a very early epistle at all and must have been written around the same time as the theologically-mature Epistle to the Romans.
I had not learned of the "Robinson redating" by then, but I was later pleased that he had backed up much of what I had come to believe.
In this new translation of the Nazarene Acts, we follow Kefa (Peter) as he itinerates from Jerusalem and up the Mediterranean coast up to Tripoli, as recorded in the journals of his successor, Clement of Rome (Phi 4:3).That’s effectively the thesis statement of Mark, the earliest canonical Gospel: “The time is fulfilled and the Kingdom of God is near; repent, and believe in the good news” (Mark ).And if the basic message of Jesus was wrong, then how can anyone presume to find “salvation” through faith in him? Brace, April 19th, 2010: This refers to the challenge to the earlier, I think much looser, dating of the New Testament prior to something like the 1970s. Indeed, the temple was referred to by the Apostle John 10 Revelation 11 as though it were still standing. He believed that AD70 was a pivotal year for the early church with the destruction of the temple at Jerusalem and found it quite staggering that that event would have gone unmentioned 10 those books which had been believed to have been written very late, such as the epistles of John and the Book of Revelation.
