I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

comment Does Isaiah 11:3 involve smelling?
You have said quite a bit about why you think Christians are wrong to take this as a prophecy about Jesus, but I don't see an answer to the actual question. What Hebrew word is used there, and what is the correct understanding of its usage? -1 for now.

comment The Euphrates River Drying up?
I don't disagree, but that comment would be a more relevant answer than what you posted. Just wanted to explain my down vote so you weren't wondering.

comment Is “revile the gods” (KJV) an accurate translation in Exo. 22:28?
@JimThio is that your down vote? (If this info wasn't useful to you I'll delete the answer; I might have misunderstood what you were looking for.)

comment The Euphrates River Drying up?
This does not answer the actual question. It's just a teaching on your perspective on the verse... The OP specifically asked about how Preterists would explain it.

comment Did Jesus subject Himself to the law of the land by paying the temple tax?
Ah, excellent line of inquiry in that case. I edited the title to try and fix the negative ring I felt it had, and focus it more on the issue you're trying to get at. Feel free to reverse the edit or notify me if you're not happy with the edit.

comment To whom does the Psalmist refer to in Psalm 2:6 as “the installed King of Zion”?
Great answer. +1. I was a little surprised by your statement that God did not appoint Saul to be king though... Was that a typo? I thought God appointed Saul to be king at the (foolish) request of the Israelites? If memory serves, he was anointed with oil, the Spirit came upon him, he had prophet and priest supporting him, etc.

comment What is the significance of both the priest and the Levite in the Good Samaritan parable?
Great question. +1. Whatever the significance, what we can be sure of is that Jesus' choice of characters here would have been outrageously offensive to His Jewish audience!

comment 2 Cor 5:20: “be reconciled to God” translation
@Susan Thanks for the feedback. I was thinking of translations from the Greek in those two cases. I'll update with more biblical examples when I get time.
