One Response to PODCAST: Yeshua in Context – Desolating Sacrilege

  1. I enjoyed the podcast today; of course, I’m almost guarunteed to when the subject is prophecy.

    A point that you did not address either way was that it is very common in Biblical prophecy to have multiple fulfillments. For example, the Almahs’ Child in Isaiah 7–is this Child a sign to Ahaz of his near deliverance from the Samaria/Damascus alliance, or a sign to the House of David of the Holy One’s fidelity which would only be seen 700 years later? The answer is probably both, with Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz being the near fulfillment and Yeshua being the far.

    Under this view, Yeshua was speaking of both the coming destruction of the Temple and His Second Coming. Luke’s version is either a related prophecy that He gave in the Temple or a deliberate midrashic paraphrase by Luke and Paul to emphasize the Temple judgment.

    I’ve got an article at http://returnofbenjamin.wordpress.com/2011/02/04/multiple-fulfillments-of-prophecy/ going into this subject in more detail if you are interested.

    Shalom
