    What was finished was the sin death atonement that allowed God to now freely justify the sinner who received Jesus thru faith, but my point was that in those discussions of when the temple would be destroyed and signs of His returning, as not all of those events he foretold happened AD 70!

    You ask searching questions. Have you been happy with the answers I have given previously?

    A simple answer is to say, "read Hebrews" as he discusses Sabbath rest and other questions related to typical and prophetic fulfilment of the old covenant Law and Prophets.

    I suggest that the OT saints were in a saved relationship with God, living by faith and with the indwelling Holy Spirit. Better to look for similarities than differences.

    In the OC salvation was through the ordinances, yet by personal faith. In the NC it is through the Gospel. The promises to Abraham, enjoyed by the people of Israel, are now enjoyed by all the redeemed, one people of God by faith in Christ.

    That's a start. We are all looking forward to being in the presence of our Saviour at death, and to the glory of the resurrection in the NH&NE.

    Was the Lord Jesus Christ mistaken when he declared:
    I tell you the truth, this generation shall certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
    Or are you mistaken?
