Fred Heeren: Home Alone in the Universe?

Fred Heeren: Home Alone in the Universe?

Fred Heeren, “Home Alone in the Universe?” First Things (Mar 2002, No 121), pages 38-46. I always enjoy reading contemporary articles that offer fresh evidence for faith in the God of the Bible, even if such “evidence” is somewhat indirect. I found this recently in a well-written summary and critique of another “faith,” the predominantly […]

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 6: Matthew 5:21-7:29, by Kevin M. Williams

  Part Five of the series examined Yeshua’s1 proclamation, “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17). We examined that this statement has, over the centuries, given many believers the impression that Yeshua did away with or annulled the […]

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 5: Matthew 5:13-20, by Kevin M. Williams

After the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10), there does not appear to be any break in the chronology of Matthew’s narrative. It seems that Yeshua1 (Jesus) continues teaching on this mountain in Galilee (see Matt. 7:28-29). There is however, a break in the context. If the assertions made in the last edition of the Pneuma Review were […]

Upon This Foundation: Ephesians 2:20 and the Gift of Prophecy, by Jon M. Ruthven

Upon This Foundation: Ephesians 2:20 and the Gift of Prophecy, by Jon M. Ruthven

Introduction Cessationists,1 those who argue that certain gifts of the Spirit have ceased, are increasingly using an argument-from-analogy from Paul’s epistle to the believers in Ephesus. This paper offers a biblical rebuttal to the cessationist use of Ephesians 2:20 as an argument for the cessation of prophecy, and, by extension, the other so-called “miraculous” gifts […]

Pentecostalism and Ecumenism: Past, Present, and Future (Part 5 of 5) by Amos Yong

Pentecostalism and Ecumenism: Past, Present, and Future (Part 5 of 5) by Amos Yong

Amos Yong challenges classical Pentecostals to re-examine what ecumenism really is. V. Pentecostalism and Ecumenism: Future Prospects and Tasks My conclusion is that Pentecostals need the larger Church even as the larger Church needs Pentecostalism. Thus, the quest for a biblically based and Spirit inspired Christian unity must include both movements. In this last section […]

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 4, by Kevin M. Williams

“Now when He heard that John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee” (Matthew 4:12). This verse is not, as some might think, God incarnate fleeing danger.  Rather, it is possible that this was in fulfillment of John’s words about Jesus, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). John understood, as […]

Pentecostalism and Ecumenism: Past, Present, and Future (Part 4 of 5) by Amos Yong

Amos Yong challenges classical Pentecostals to re-examine what ecumenism really is. IV. Pentecostal Ecumenism: A Survey If it is true to say that Pentecostalism has always been ecumenical, it is also true to say that in certain respects, the ecumenical movement has always been “pentecostal.” In what follows, I want to tease out three elements […]
