John 5:24-29| Two Resurrections? #2

We are examining the claim that John 5:24-29 speaks of two different resurrections of disparate nature, at two widely separated times. The claim is made the when Jesus (v. 24-25) referred to “the hour that now is” he was referring to a spiritual resurrection out of “sin-death” i.e. alienation from God. However, according to the theory, when Jesus referred to…

John 5:24-29| Two Resurrections?

Does John 5:24-29 Predict Two Resurrections One of the favorite objections to the true preterist view of eschatology is an appeal to John 5:24-29: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. 25 Most…
