comment Was the virgin conception of Jesus known to the people at the time?
@AffableGeek - very nice of you to say so but please read the comments above - I think it might only be a good answer to a different question...

@msk: I see, I thought that God being the Father would imply virgin conception. I can see how that is not necessarily the case so I may delete this answer. Regarding the Father bit, I don't think it was common to call God Father. Jesus was pretty radical with "Our Father" and then especially with "My Father". See John 5:18.

Interesting question. Why the downvote?

comment Premillennialist view of 1 Thessalonians 4:16
"...those who have died in Christ will rise before Christ actually comes down out of the clouds" - doesn't 1 Th 4:16 say the opposite; that Jesus will descend and then the dead in Christ shall arise?

comment Do Christians receive the same inheritance as Messianic Jews?
Up to you; but if you mean people get bored because of the speed, I can handle this speed of communication if you can.

comment Do Christians receive the same inheritance as Messianic Jews?
OK, what I wrote in chat was: "The Law is not a means of salvation but a way to point out our sin. (Romans 8:3) Now I think about it, I don't think the Law was ever intended to bring us salvation because it can't. There's only Grace - Amazing as it is." We can set up a dedicated chat room or leave it there... your choice.

I don't think Jesus' words in Mat 23 at all imply any exclusivity to salvation. Indeed, I'm sure God's grace extends to people before Abram, eg Noah.

I have to disagree with "the promise of Salvation no longer is exclusive to the Jewish Nation". I don't think it ever was; see eg Numbers 15:15-16.

I have to downvote this for two reasons. 1. The parable in Matt 20 implies people hired at all times get the same reward; your "on the other hand... neither Jew nor Greek" seems to imply otherwise. 2. Though Christians believe themselves to be "the Body of Christ", I don't see how that makes us Jews.
