Somehow the thread got moved to Dr. Parry’s author category?? I’m not reading his book on the internet (or discussing it really)…
Oh well. Moved it back here. (Unless I was so scatterbrained that it put it in Robin’s forum the first time…?)
Episode 2 is here! What is the purpose of God’s judgment? So that all persons will come to honor the Father and the Son! – so does God’s ultimate judgment fail? (Spoiler: no. ) Does God give all persons to the Son? Yes to be raised, yes to be judged, yes to be given eonian life. Shall the Son lose any the Father has given Him? No, no, no. How does the Son judge? By fulfilling the precept or command of the Father. Which is? To give eonian life to all things which the Father has given Him. Eonian life is itself the judgment on those still not honoring the Father or the Son; but is also the judgment by which all who don’t yet honor the Father and the Son shall come to honor both the Father and the Son: even those who have died in their sins rejecting that the Son is “I AM” (but then afterward they shall come to accept the Son is “I AM”.)
Picks up some philosophical spares from last week, and then I go on to talk about quite a lot of GosJohn (especially chapter 5) plus a few places in GosMatt and the OT including Jer 31.
Matt 25 (sheep and goats) very briefly – more on that next week.
Matt 12:9-14 / Mark 3:1-6 / Luke 6:6-11
John 5:18-30 (5:23 is the key verse for the night)
John 6:37-40, 44-45
Matt 23:38-39 (briefly)
John 12:32, 47-50
John 17:2-20 (17:2 is another key verse for the night)
The argument ends around 2 hours 30 minutes, but the show continues another 20 minutes, and somewhere in there includes a pretty detailed discussion of Matt 18:21-35.
