The Talents

In Matthew chapter 25, Jesus, in His Olivet Discourse, gave us two more “kingdom parables,” that of the ten virgins and the talents. We must point out that this chapter is a mostly ignored part of the Discourse, for most people think of chapter 24 when speaking of the Olivet Discourse; but the fact is […]

Wheat and Tares

After Jesus spoke His parable about the sower, undoubtedly one of His oft-repeated, He then spoke another, similar parable in that it too had agricultural connotations, i.e., that of wheat and tares. Tares, although serving a function in that they can be grown to feed livestock, are not a staple crop and resemble wheat when […]

The Sower

We have concluded our study of the prophet Daniel, and at the conclusion, we discussed the stone cut from the mountain without hands that filled the whole earth (chapter 2), and the Son of Man, who was presented before the Ancient of Days and given an everlasting kingdom (chapter 7). Not by coincidence, we see […]

It All Points to Christ

We have spent a considerable amount of time covering the prophet Daniel, and we have seen that his prophecies were not only about the coming of Christ but that Jesus Himself talked about Daniel’s prophecies of Him. Furthermore, we saw that both Jesus and Daniel talked about things such as the abomination of desolation and […]

Daniel 12:1-4

We have digressed and traveled far afield from Daniel’s prophecy, so we now return to him. We will connect Daniel 12:1-4, not only with his interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dreams and the visions of the statue in chapter 2 but also with the time of Christ. We must keep in mind two things: first, the […]

Messiah the Prince

Last time we had a little fun with some of the numerology involved in the Scriptures. There is so much more, but that is an entirely separate topic. For ours, getting serious again, Daniel 9:26 says, “Until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks,” i.e., sixty-nine weeks. That is the time […]

Time, Times, and Half a Time

We have spent much time in Daniel 9:24-27, i.e., the seventy weeks, and rightly so, so now we move on to chapter 12. However, one might ask, what happened to chapters 10 and 11? Well, since 10:13 mentions the kingdom of Persia, 10:20 the prince of Persia and the prince of Greece, and 11:2 three […]

Seventy Weeks IV

This article will be the last under the heading of Seventy Weeks. What more can we say about the decreed ‘pouring-out’ on the desolator (Daniel 9:27)? Well, Antiochus Epiphanes and the Greek Empire are no more. And Titus, the Roman general who was the one who destroyed the city and Temple in 70AD, and who […]
