mid-week apologetics booster (7-23-2020)

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 1700) from Nuggets:

And here’s something fascinating: there’s a rabbinic tradition preserved in the Talmud that says on the Day of Atonement there were three different signs that the animal sacrifices the high priest offered had been accepted by God and atonement given to the nation. 41 In the years when the signs would come up negative, the people would be ashamed and mourn, because God had not accepted their sacrifice. Then it says that during the last forty years before the second temple was destroyed, all three signs were negative each and every time. 42 Think about that: Jesus probably was crucified in AD 30, and the temple was destroyed in AD 70. So from the time of his death to the time of the destruction of the temple – a period of forty years – God signaled that he no longer accepted the sacrifices and offerings of the Jewish people. Why?His answer was emphatic: Because final atonement had been made through Yeshua, just as he had prophesied. – The Case for the Real Jesus

  1. The World Needs More Faithful Men – Faithfulness is also hard work. Many days come when faithful men would prefer a different course than the one in front of them when they would rather take a break from killing their sin, pursuing their wives, disciplining their children, laboring at their job…faithfulness is often thankless. By its very nature, it goes largely unnoticed: rarely showy, ever steady, a faithful man is as valuable and yet as inconspicuous as a beating heart. That he can be taken for granted is, in a sense, his glory. Yet despite the difficulties that attend true faithfulness, the world desperately needs such faithful men. Men whose word means something more than maybe. | Desiring God: https://www.desiringgod.org/articles/the-world-needs-more-faithful-men
