Review of POWER 2017 The Parable of the Virgins By Mike Benson
Mike Benson presented an informative lesson on the “Parable of the Virgins” at the POWER 2017 Lectures presented by the Southaven Church of Christ, Southaven, MS, 38671. He said some things with which Preterists agree. However, the after stating his former professor’s advice about viewing Scripture from a first century viewpoint, he made all 21st centuiry applications of the text with no application of the events to those to whom the parable was spoken. We find this problematic and a violation of that “first century” audience relevance principle. In today’s lesson, we examine, critique and exegete the text of Matthew 25:1-12 with the hope that some of these brothers will begin to open their eyes to the flaws in their hermeneutic and appications of these end times texts. Needless to day, Benson made some major contradictions and admissions in his lesson that we will demonstrate. Join us for this lively review at 6pm Century, 7pm eastern.
