  1. Hi Doug,

    I am way behind on listening to your teachings. I am trying to listen to too many authors at once :). I just finished this one.

    I have dispensationalist leanings. In the context of your discussion on the bride of Christ I was wondering what you thought of John the baptist calling himself the bridegroom’s friend?

    John 3:29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled.

    Also wondering what you think of Mat 11:11….

    Matt 11:11 Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen one greater than John the Baptist. But the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

    My favorite dispensationlist blogger is Dr. Henebury. I like to listen/read lots of different perspectives, both scholarly and popular. Dr. Henebury is the most careful dispensationlist scholar I have read along with MIchael Vlach. His article on the bride of Christ is good:

    His whole series Christ at the Center: The Fulcrum of Biblical Covenantalism is excellent.

    He argues in this series for a triadic people of God in the eternal state (Israel, the church, and the nations).

    It does seem to me like there will be nations in the millennium and on into the eternal state, along with an Israel in fulfillment of the eternal land promises in the Old Testament. There will also be permanent inhabitants of the New Jerusalem it seems.

    I am still thinking these issues through. I am open to having my mind changed, but I am not fully convinced yet that Isreal will be part of the bride of Christ (except for those Jews who believed in Jesus during the church age).

    Blessings,
    Peter
