Theology Club Rules

For years many TOL members have asked for a special set of forums where theology could be discussed without the distraction of troublemakers and other distractions. To post in the Theology Club forums you must apply for membership (yes even TOL subscribers must apply). Almost all memberships will be approved however your membership will be revoked if you engage in anti-Christian rhetoric, repeated cases of red-herrings, quibbling over terms (equivocation), strawmen, false allegations, and other devices contrary to honest debate. In short the Theology Club is a place for honest and friendly discussion regarding theological topics.

    No. Most of Israel didn't (cf. John 12:40)
    I don't care how systematic your theology is, until you show me how biblical it is.

    2 Tim 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

      I thought they had until 70AD, when the doors of repentance for Israel slammed shut because there was no more Israel...

        "Iscariot" isn't a last name. It may be part of a political philosophy "sicarii", which was specifically anti-Roman, and thus, he would be the one to act in such a way to force Jesus' hand to rebel against the Romans, and lead Israel to its glory as David's kingdom.

        Thus, Jesus "knew" because he knew who Judas was all along.

          John 6:64 - "'But there are some of you who do not believe.” (For Jesus knew from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.)"

          I think Boyd's treatment is quite shallow, missing the fuller points of this passage and was hoping to find a more detailed response.

          Thanks
          John 6:44 states that drawing is required before one is able to come. Jesus is referring to those whom God would not draw.
