Luk 9:44 Let these words sink down into your ears. For the Son of Man shall be betrayed into the hands of men.
Luk 9:45 But they did not understand this, and it was hidden from them so that they did not perceive it. And they feared to ask Him of this word.
even to Israel ?Then comes the 40 days. They are taught thoroughly that this was SUPPOSED to happen according to the prophets and that the cancellation of the debt of sin is now to be preached, even to Israel who nailed him to the cross!!! It is absolutely wonderful, grace, mercy and forgiveness.
the 12 only preached to the circumcised .
Paul is the only one preaching grace apart from the law to gentiles.
says the preteristBut to 2P2P it is a mess and is totally lost.
kingdom used 126 times in the gospels to the circumcision audience .They were certainly not taught about a kingdom for Israel, because that thought is snapped at Acts 1:8 and it never surfaces again. Their last mistake like that, it seems.
no , we understand Israel had the gospel preached to them first , refused and Paul was raised up to goPeter's message, explaining the noise of the Spirit, is just that.
The people who nailed Christ did so in a set plan and foreknowledge that God was bringing a way of remitting sins. So it was not a LOSS!!! It was a victory!!! Of course, they were wrong to do so, but so were the brothers of Joseph to throw him in a pit for trade for money. It still ended in a victory.
But this story and victory is lost to 2P2P because it has a separate story that is perfectly dull.
to the gentiles which the 12 disciples could have done but didn't
they even sold everything but Israel was cut offThis Jesus then gets put on the much-dreamed throne of David!!! And why not? Every title that can be named!!! There is nothing so amazing, so powerful, so intimately kind to the worst enemy, a story that applies to the whole universe! Peter powers on in the next speech with the assumption that Christ would return shortly and renovate everything about this world! That is how powerful the hope there is in the victory resurrection and enthronement of Christ! Yes it is a complete taste of the powers of the world to come (Heb 6:5) where everything will be right!
Act 2:45 And they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, according as anyone had need.
But 2P2P turns it into regurgitated muck that no one would care for. Nothing damages the throb and passion of the Gospel like 2P2P. It is not just wrong on every exegesis, it is disgusting.
