Mixing timing and context again AITB. I can do that too but choose instead to practice exegesis not eisegesis. Cherry picking verses and portions of commentaries out of context isn't strengthening your case.
And forgive me please for not engaging you any further this night in the parsing of words. But this exercise of re-plowing the same field is yielding little fruit. I've also been trying to do this while multi-tasking all night long. Even had to leave the house for an hour with the computer stuck on several websites so for tonight at least, it's time to give this a rest.
I understand, brother Steve. No problem.
I do want to place what I added to the end of my previous post after you grabbed it... (because it DOES have to do with "timing"):
[q'g the end of my last post]
"I think I still hold to Matt 26:29 (Lk 22:16, 18, etc) as being future. [Matt 26:29 correlates with Matt 25:31-34, time-wise... (oops, forgot to add-->)... BECAUSE of what both Matt 19:28 and Lk 22:30,16,18 say]"
I understand that you see no "connection" between Jesus' parables of "the wedding supper" and "the wedding supper" of Rev 19 (which you say is its only mention [what you regard as a "heavenly" supper]). This is basically the crux of our disagreement.
Have a great and restful evening, brother! I've enjoyed the discussion (as usual).
