Does that help to answer your question at all?
Personally, I believe that Jesus didn't get involved or teach about it because it was no issue to him. He may have just left it up to them to decide for themselves what they felt kept them close to God and defined them as a people.
The Jews have more trials to go through before they recognize Jesus as the Son of God. As Christians, all we know is that the Bible says it will all happen again. History will keep repeating itself until they come to the realization about Jesus.
Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a prophet from among their brothers, like you; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him. 19 It shall happen, that whoever will not listen to my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
Luke 16: 27 “He said, ‘I ask you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house; 28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, so they won’t also come into this place of torment.’
29 “But Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen to them.’
30 “He said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’
31 “He said to him, ‘If they don’t listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if one rises from the dead.’”"
It serves no purpose to assist the Zionists in any attempt they make to do that which only the Messiah is authorized to do. That is not helping the Jews, that is fighting against Jesus.
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Matthew 5:…44But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which spitefully use you, and persecute you; 45That you may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Zechariah 14: 17 It will be, that whoever of all the families of the earth doesn’t go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Yahweh of Armies, on them there will be no rain.
To me, it says something like,
Is it possible that the saying of rebuilding what was destroyed, could have been a Pharisee saying?
I need to read the last section of Robert Jewett to see what he has to say about that.
And later, by the time he wrote Romans, has he fully accepted post-exile to the extent that he found no problem with Jerusalem being World center for Christianity?
I may have added that part, "thing", at the end but how I interpret it, seeing he is talking about tearing down something and building something.
παραβάτην ? Where is that used as damnable thing? I don't see how (from parabainó Definition one who stands beside) is that like a satan or something?
That is something I have to do anyway, to learn how these words are used. What burns up time is going through long lists of verses that have that word in it and seeing how sentences are constructed around them.
4 hours, thanks
