Review of POWER 2017 The Parable of the Virgins By Mike Benson #3
Mike Benson’s Southaven POWER 2017 Lecture on the Parable of the Virgins in Matthew 25:1-13 speaks of delay of the coming of the Bridegroom. He gives the impressions that Jesus’ coming is far removed from the first century settting in which it is found. However, the marriage theme is rooted in the Law and the Prophets in books such as Hosea and Isaiah and Jeremiah. These all, along with all the New Testament writings supply all the information needed to identify the subjects, time and nature of the wedding.
