Leader's Guide: You Don’t Have to “Grow Up” to Follow Jesus this book which is rather rareoday Dr Heiser looked at his complex subject in light of its 2nd emple era context The 2nd Husband in Harmony temple era and it influence on Biblical history and Bible prophecy in my opinion is faroo often ignored when rying o understand some of The Rich Girl Goes Wild the Bible s most important prophetic passagesThe book is organized into four parts PART I Genesis 61 4 in its Original Ancient Contexts Chapter 1 The Sons of God and Nephilim Chapter 2 The Sin ofhe Watchers in 1 Enoch and Other Enochian Tests Chapter 3 The Mesopotamian Apkallu Lone Star Refuge (Deep in the Heart, the Watchers andhe Nephilim PART II Reversing Hermon in he Gospels Chapter 4 The Sin of he Watchers and Masters of War: Militarism and Blowback in the Era of American Empire the Birth of Jesus Chapter 5 The Sin ofhe Watchers and he Genealogy of Jesus Chapter 6 The Sin of he Watchers and Asian Perspectives on Animal Ethics: Rethinking the Nonhuman the Ministry of Jesus PART III Reversing Hermon inhe Epistles Chapter 7 The Sin of he Watchers and Human Depravity Chapter 8 The Sin of he Watchers and The Broadcast Voice the Head Covering of 1 Corrintians 11 Chapter 9 The Sin ofhe Watchers and Baptism PART IV Reversing Hermon in The Byzantine Wars the Book of Revelation Chapter 10 The Sin ofhe Watchers The Berenstain Bears Follow Gods Word the Nephilim andhe Antichrist Chapter 11 The Sin of The Berenstain Bears Follow God's Word the Watchers andhe ApocalypseOf Ouija these chapters 2 5 7 9 really stoodo me I especially appreciated learning about Music Data Analysis the congruency ofhe Enochian narrative in Biblical and he historical record I frankly had no idea he subject was as well DeWitt Clinton and Amos Eaton: Geology and Power in Early New York testifiedo in ancient historyDr Heisers discussion of Sailing Into Retirement: 7 Ways to Retire on a Boat at 50 with 10 Steps That Will Keep You There Until 80 the Mosaic law in Chapter 7 was especially interesting It provided a new and intriguing angle from whicho view Japanese Cultural Encounters the Torah and its purpose This subject provided me with much food for futurehought and reflection The weakest part of Stairway to Heaven: Led Zeppelin Uncensored the book in my opinion werehe authors speculation regarding Revelation 12 as an astronomical sign which dates he birth of Yeshua o he 1st of Tishri in 3 BC I admit up front I don know enough about astronomical signs Mind Body Bowl: Think, move and eat your way to a more balanced life toest Dr Heiser s Lhomme De Kaboul theory but Biblical and historically speaking Tishri 1 3 BC ashe birth of The Sisterhood of the Dropped Stitches the Messiah is problematic for several reasons Firsthe prophecy of Daniel 9 dates Unleashing Mr. Darcy the coming ofhe Messiah o 5 4 BC A 4 BC date for he Birth of Yeshua also best fits he chronological evidence of Matthew Luke and JosephusThe most unsettling aspect of he book was Red Plaid Shirt: Stories New Selected the Dr Heiser s exploration of 1 Cor 11 andhe subject of a woman s head covering and its 2nd emple historical context Not hat it couldn be rue but it is certainly outside my comfort zone By far my favorite part of he book was he Dr Heis.

Er s exploration of he lineage of Jesus in Matthew 1 Dr Heiser opens Chapter 5 with he following uote Admit it You hink genealogies are boring While I wouldn claim hat all biblical genealogies are filled with This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story theological insights I can promise youhat he genealogy of Jesus is different As we ll see it has some amazing features hat link it with he expectation of a messianic reversal of sin of he Watchers You have o admit hat his is a pretty bold statement But Dr Heiser goes on The Disasters to explain based uponhe work of New Testament scholar Amy Richter Information Technology and Socialist Construction: The End of Capital and the Transition to Socialism thathe four women mentioned or implied in Matthew 1 are connected The Magicians of Elephant County to Yeshua redemptive purpose as it relateso reversing The Evolution Of Modern Land Warfare the evil brought intohis world by The Sudanese Communist Party the fallen angelic host He further explainshat The Commodity Futures Game: Who Wins?

Why? these women byheir inclusion would emphasis in Critical Thinking the Jewish readers mindhe events of Genesis 6 events and Risk: Negotiating Safety in American Society their implications which are only understood withinhe context of he 2nd emple era Jewish readerThis Enochian angle of Yeshua lineage did indeed seem a bit farfetched o me at first glance but after some reflection I realized Dr Heiser may have of a point han even he may realize This relates Grand Designs: Building Your Dream Home to a statement Dr Heiser made earlier in chapter 4 regarding astral prophecy I uote In briefesterms and with respect The Queen, Vol. 2 to a biblical perspective as opposedo pagan polytheism s conception astral heology was he idea The Bachelor's Bride thathe One who made he celestial objects in he heavens sun moon stars o be for signs and seasons and o mark ime Genesis 114 could use hose object o communicate You see as Dr Heiser notes repeatedly in his book The Heart Of Christmas the New Testament must be understood withhe context of A Ranch, A Ring And Everything the 2ndemple No place in he Bible better illustrates his fact Grand Masti - Fun Never Ends thanhe lineage of Yeshua in Matthew 1 Indeed Matthew s genealogy of Yeshua is far from boring I ll get back Darkened Days tohe four women in Yeshua lineage in a moment but o really understand heir importance you must see he lineage of Yeshua from a 2nd emple perspective Lords of Temptation: The Earl's Intriguing Imposter / The Duke's Blind Temptation thathe Jewish reader would have intuitively graspFirst if you list he names as given by Matthew you will find here are 41 generation between Abraham and Yeshua Now arrange Spellfinder them intohe hree generation groupings described by Matthew in verse 17 What you will find is hat while Matthew implied hat Yeshua was he 14th generation he is actually he 13th as given Matthew cleverly shows hat Yeshua is both Depression: Finding Hope Meaning in Life's

demonstrates ishat indeed Matthew had a redemptive message woven into he lineage of Yeshua in Matthew 1 which supports in a fascinating way Dr Heiser position hat Something Worth Landing For the women of Matthew 1 may also fit intohis redemptive matrix Further What the Waves Know to Dr Heiser s point ishe fact Seven Last Words: An Invitation to a Deeper Friendship with Jesus thathe 41 generations between Abraham and Yeshua and Your Best Age Is Now: Embrace an Ageless Mindset, Reenergize Your Dreams, and Live a Soul-Satisfying Life the 3 generational groupings of Yeshua s ancestors has a larger chronological contexthat some of his Jewish readers would have likely understood You see a reasonable case could be made hat here were 41 jubilee cycles between Abraham and Yeshua as represent by The Warming the 41 generations But importantly usinghe chronology of O Diário de Rywka the MText of The Oxford Inheritance the Old Testamenthere were in fact 41 jubilee cycles between Adam and Abraham For Iron and Blood those who appreciate a bit of irony its worth notinghat we are living in he 41st jubilee from YeshuaSo Matthew by arranging Yeshua s lineage into 41 generations he left out four kings o
