Карты показывают географическое положение мест, связанных с библейскими историями, в то время как специально подобранные иллюстрации дают представление о жизни стран и их народов. Сопроводительный текст описывает землю Палестины, и её более обширное древнее Ближневосточное и Восточно-Средиземноморское окружение. В нем выделены последовательные исторические периоды, и описаны главные цивилизации, с которыми контактировали израильтяне, иудеи и ранние христиане.

A Case for Amillennialism: Understanding the End Times

In a transparent and obtainable demeanour, Kim Riddlebarger provides and defends amillennialism—the trust that the millennium is a gift truth based in Christ's heavenly reign, now not a destiny desire of Christ's rule on the earth after his return—as the old Protestant knowing of the millennial age.

Recognizing that eschatology—the research of destiny things—is a sophisticated and arguable topic, Riddlebarger starts with definitions of key terminology and an summary of assorted viewpoints and similar biblical issues. He then discusses key passages of Scripture that endure upon the millennial age, together with Daniel nine, Matthew 24, Romans eleven, and Revelation 20. ultimately, he evaluates the most difficulties dealing with all of the significant millennial positions and cautions us to pay attention to the implications of every view.

This elevated variation encompasses a new foreword from Michael Horton, a brand new bankruptcy at the antichrist, a brand new bankruptcy on symptoms of the tip, and several other worthy charts and indexes.

Abraham and his family are said to have travelled from Ur in southern Mesopotamia to Haran in the north (Gen. 11: 31). There is a reference in Genesis 14: 1 to a King Amraphel of Shinar (see the chapter on ‘The Patriarchs in Canaan’). Isaac’s wife, Rebekah, is said to have come from Aram-naharaim, more specifically Paddan-aram (Gen. 24: 10, 25: 20), and it was there that Jacob went to find a wife (Gen.
