Redating the New Testament by J.A.T. Robinson

I was searching for a copy of the out-of-print, Redating the New Testament by J.A.T. Robinson, and found a PDF copy at the Preterist Archive site. (Here I should point out that the site contains some “hyper-preterist” articles, while I am a partial preterist.) The preterist position not only refutes the “goofy” false doctrine of dispensationalism, but also the damnable heresy of modernism. Yet few Christians have ever studied the preterist position, which contends that most so-called “end-times” prophecy actually refers to events in Judea and Jerusalem just prior to 70 A.D. I’ll write more on this idea later.

It turns out that Anglican Bishop John Robinson’s book is the refutation of the late date theory —the idea that most books of the New Testament were written under an assumed name after 70 A.D. This is one of the books that that influenced the conversion of Anne Rice.

Even the extreme liberal Robinson, when forced to look at the data objectively, decided that there is no proof that the entire New Testament could not have been written from 40 to 65 A.D. He started to write his book “as a joke” to argue against the conservative viewpoint from a reducto ad absurdum point of view. But when considering the other side, he came to take it more seriously and eventually became convinced of the conservative, traditional point of view even though he himself was a liberal and didn’t believe in the inspiration and inerrancy of scripture.

It is interesting that "the Law", "the Prophets", and eschatology ("heaven and earth") are all wrapped up in Matthew 5:17-19. This is the crucial point of scripture that convinced me of the truth of both theonomy and full preterism. Whenever I check out a commentary (or a commentator), I always check how they deal with this passage as one gauge for how seriously I should take them. Thanks for your interesting blog.

That's too awesome how God worked through someone like Robinson, who started to write his book "as a joke" but ultimately was lead to appreciate the conservative, traditional point of view.
That's just remarkable how God works in mysterious ways.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.
