  1. . . . of Solomon's and Zerubabbel's Temples, the Gospel, and the rest . . .

    There have been only two earthly physical “brick and mortar” temples: Solomon’s and Zerubabbel’s. And the "pre-exile" Jerusalem was destroyed for specific reasons--and along with Solomon’s "earthly" temple sanctuary:

    II Chron. 36
    11Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem.

    12He did evil in the sight of the LORD his God; he did not humble himself before Jeremiah the prophet
  2. . . . apropos the abolishing of death and the first resurrection . . .

    And now, apropos the first resurrection: it seems that it might be useful to review the impact of the phrase “abolished death” in II Tim. 1:10 (see the text in underlined bold below):

    II Tim. 1
    8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God,

  4. Monotheistic Dances Part 7

    As we have see, the history of the Dance has been fraught with not only theological perils, but physical also. In the cans of Islam and Judaism, the dance led to the exile of two tribes in Medina and the eradication of a third.

  5. . . . of righteousness and peace

    Let's go to the following passage:

    Isaiah 9
    6For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;
    And the government will rest on His shoulders;
    And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

    7There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace,
