I never saw an answer.
« on: April 08, 2013, 05:28:15 PM »
I never saw an answer to my question regarding Cody's statement that if the Jews had accepted Christ as their king, he would not have had to be crucified.

If that is what you believe, what would have happened after that?  Would the Jews have died?  I cannot see it anywhere in scripture so you would have to teach me.

I suppose it was Scofield that invented that teaching, but I don't know.

I suppose the is the logical outcome of dispensation teaching.  If the Jews Had accepted Christ, as their king, he would not have had to die.  But is it scriptural?

The supposition is often made that Jesus came to set up his Kingdom on earth, but the Jews rejected him.  False teaching.

When the Jews tried to make Jesus king, He rejected them.   "My kingdom is NOT of this world." Jesus said to Pilate.

So if you reject that teaching, ans believe that the gospel age is Plan B, it is not unreasonable to ask what you think would have happened if Plan A was accepted. 

After all there should be many prophecies about it in the OT.

On the other hand there are many OT prophecies that the Messiah was to suffer and die.

The answer is still the same, it is a spurious questions you might as well ask why did God make a garden of eden if he already knew that man would fall!

Not a spurious question at all.  However like the Brethren who invented the theory, it seems you don't have an answer only to repeat the teaching that has been drummed into you.

Your signature says that the tribulation comes before the rapture but I see nothing in the bible to even suggest that. 

Pre tribulation rapturists tell me that
Matt 24:30  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

refers to the rapture, but that is after the tribulation.

Its a spurious question because you might well ask would Christ have been crucified if Adam had not fallen in the garden!
