The First Year of Herod the Great’s Reign 8/8/2018 - by Rick Lanser MDiv

This article gives some specific rebuttals to the contention that Herod’s reign must be dated from his appointment by the Romans, supposedly in 39 BC...

John 2:12–21 and Herodian Chronology 6/29/2018 - by Rick Lanser MDiv

This article will mainly examine what John 2:12–21 says about the 46 years Herod’s temple had been under construction as of the first Passover of Jesus’ public ministry, bringing in as needed reasons to assign the beginning of the reign of Herod to the traditional date of 37 BC, rather than the 36 BC date some researchers have recently promoted...

What was the “Fifteenth Year of Tiberius”? 5/30/2018 - by Rick Lanser MDiv

We are going to look at something Luke reports: the ministry of John the Baptist coincided with the 15th year of Tiberius Caesar (Lk 3:1). This is often cited as evidence the Crucifixion took place in AD 33, but it will be shown it can very reasonably be reconciled with AD 30—for which, we must not forget, the previous studies in this series have already shown strong scriptural support...

Understanding the 2,300 “Evenings and Mornings” of Daniel 8:14 4/30/2018 - by Rick Lanser MDiv

At the 2017 Evangelical Theological Society meeting in Providence, Rhode Island, I had a conversation with a friend about the meaning of the 2,300 “evenings and mornings” mentioned in Daniel 8:14...

How Acts and Galatians Indicate the Date of the Crucifixion 3/26/2018 - by Rick Lanser MDiv

My goal in this paper is to look closely at details in Scripture itself that point to a clear-cut date for the Crucifixion...

How the Passover Illuminates the Date of the Crucifixion 2/28/2018 - by Rick Lanser MDiv

I have found that a close study of the term “Passover” and matters related to it profoundly illustrates how intricately the Lord God has tied together the books of the Bible, where one part far removed from another explains and illuminates an obscure detail elsewhere that is otherwise almost inscrutable...

How Lunar and Solar Eclipses Shed Light on Biblical Events 7/29/2017 - by Rodger C. Young MA

Although there are two to five solar eclipses visible from some place on Earth in any given year, the total solar eclipse predicted for August 21, 2017 has attracted more attention than any eclipse in recent memory...

Golgotha: A Reconsideration of the Evidence for the Sites of Jesus’ Crucifixion and Burial 1/11/2010 - by Joan Taylor

Currently, the most popular alternative site to traditional Golgotha, located in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Jerusalem, is the area of Gordon’s Calvary, with the so-called ‘Garden Tomb,’ but scholarly endorsement of this locality has never been very strong. Generally, the current consensus holds that Golgotha was located in the vicinity of the traditional site, somewhere north of the first wall of Jerusalem at the time of Jesus, and west of the second wall, though specificity is impossible. In this article, I would like to consider how specific we might be about the localizations of Jesus’ death and entombment...
