The author of the New Testament book of Hebrews (13:8) declares with confidence that: "Jesus Christ is the same puma creeper rendelés , Yesterday, Today, and Forever."
Let the reader recall that this text has its roots earlier in the same book, where a discussion of those under the leadership of Moses (chapter 3) and then Joshua (chapter 4) takes place. In other words, the backdrop for properly understanding the sense of verse 13:8 forms a comparison. Those compared are the Hebrews who left Egypt for the Sinai wilderness in the Exodus (who spent 40 years heading toward the promised land, "Canaan" or Israel)-- comparing THAT generation adidas tubular eladó , with the generation of Christians addressed by way of the sermon comprising the book of Hebrews.
One can find just this same comparison implied in 1 Corinthians, this time between the Corinthians and "those who were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the [Red] Sea" (1 Cor. 10:1 ff.). It becomes obvious fairly quickly that the prophetic writers of the New Testament viewed themselves and their generation as analogous to those who lived 40 years in the desert.
Only the "Egypt" they were leaving was Older Covenant Judaism, with its types and shadows (which began when Jesus was killed by his own people with the help of the Romans = A.D. 30), and they were moving toward the promised land, a time when the faith of Jesus would spread throughout the world -- which began in earnest after the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem itself (A.D. 70).
The astute reader will notice at once that this time frame (AD 30 - AD 70) spans -- you guessed it - 40 years. And this 40 year transitional phase of God's plan of salvation met with all manner of extraordinary miracles at the hands of the apostles. This was also true of those who witnessed the ministry of Moses for 40 years. Hebrews quotes God regarding them, "Forty years they saw My [miraculous] works....".
And for 40 years adidas ultra boost cipő , the Jewish contemporaries of the apostles saw God's miraculous works by apostolic hands also. This is what it means to say that the "gospel was CONFIRMED to us by them [the apostles]" in Hebrews 2:2-4. Here, confirmed means that God had shown the truth and reliability of the gospel of Christ as it was "confirmed by signs and wonders." When Jesus, as the Great High Priest, had prayed from the cross, "Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing adidas springblade eladó ," He stayed what would have been the instant wrath of God against the killers of His Only-begotten Son, thereby bringing the Jewish people of his day a merciful 40-year stay of execution.
During this period, the gospel traveled from Jerusalem, to Judaea, to Samaria, and to the "ends of the earth" [an Older Testament euphemism for the Gentile capital adidas nmd runner rendelés , which was Rome]. The book of Acts chronicles just this evangelistic trajectory of the good news of Jesus Christ -- together with attending miracles that confirmed the gospel as new revelation from God.
The ancient and analogous transitional period from Egypt to Canaan was called by David, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, "Today" -- in the saying, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." The great desire of King David -- the Building of the Temple in Jerusalem -- was actually carried out by his son -- Solomon adidas yeezy boost 350 eladó , the son of David. And, of course, the builder of the Temple reigned in Jerusalem for how long? Right again -- 971 B.C. to 931 B.C. -- 40 years. So the son of David (Solomon) built the Temple, and the Son of David (i.e. the Lord Jesus) destroyed it (A.D. 70), and replaced it with a Better Temple -- the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Thus, redemptive history had moved forward again -- onward and upward -- with the salvation of the Gentiles adidas yeezy boost 350 rendelés , and the dietary restrictions became defunct -- for they were only a didactic tool in the first place -- th nfljerseys.com/]Cheap NFL Jerseys[/url] Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys
