Responding to the Critics: Response to Keith Mathison #3 Well, I actually began this response all the way back in 2016, but, got side tracked somehow.

Can God Tell Time?

Our title is taken from an article in the Christian Courier periodical, editor Wayne Jackson. (“Christian Courier,” Vol. XXV, No. 11, March 1990, P. O. Box 55265, Stockton, Calif. 95205).

The Seventy Weeks of Daniel 9:24 – Finishing the Transgression

The Seventy Weeks of Daniel 9:24 and Isaiah 59 Seventy Weeks Are Determined… to Finish the Transgressions   I have demonstrated in two other articles on the Seventy Weeks of Daniel 9 examining the motif of the taking away of Israel’s sin, that Isaiah 40 and Isaiah 26-27 are directly parallel to Daniel 9:24-27. Those texts in Isaiah are undoubtedly…
