Nor can we accuse him of complete ignorance of biblical criticism, for he recounts at greater length in the early Christianity essay the positions of the dominant Tübingen School (Ferdinand Christian Bauer, Heinrich Ewald, Friedrich Lücke, et al.), where David Strauss also began, and the popularizing work of Ernst Renan. 38 I would be in a similar situation if someone a century from now were to read a position I take today in relation to contemporary biblical scholarship, especially if I was dependent on that scholarship rather than developing my own position.

Moreover, the comparable reference to the coming of the Son of Man in Matt 16:28, given its narrative location immediately before Matt 17:1–13, most likely refers to the transfiguration as an anticipation of the eschatological coming of the Son of Man, not to the eschatological event itself. Truly Page and Plant said it right that “she’s buying a stairway to heaven.” If secular techno-eschatologies are dualistic, postmillenial and Pelagian, then the Christian versions that mirror them are premillenial and equally as dualsitic.

Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer. This age will end in the resurrection and the receiving up of the living which will be followed immediately by the final judgment, then the eternal state. If you see the church and Israel as distinct, then it becomes quite clear that the tribulation is a time of "Jacob's trouble" and not a time of the "church's trouble." a. "If a radical disjunction between Israel and the church is assumed, a certain presumption against the posttribulational position exists, since it would be inconsistent for the church to be involved in a period of time that, according to the Old Testament, has to do with Israel."

This statement, as does the citation with which I began this essay, reflects the uncritical belief that the biblical scenario for earthly, and indeed, cosmic history, will be surely and literally fulfilled. The literal city and the physical temple was to be burned by fire in judgment, in fulfillment of prophecy: And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
