Quarterly Q&A

April 27, 2022 • Keith R. Blades, Josh Strelecki • Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38

"How are we to understand the references to baptism in the following texts: Acts 2:38 (baptized in “Jesus’ name”); Matthew 28:19 (baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost)? Why are they not the same?"

John 1:29 & John 3:16 | How do these verses pertain to the the gospel of the kingdom and not the bod

March 28, 2022 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • John 1:29, John 3:16

Please explain to me your understanding of how John 1:29 and John 3:16 “pertain to the gospel of the kingdom (or Israel’s program) and not to the body of Christ.”

Hebrews 7:1ff | Just who is Melchisedec?

February 10, 2022 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • Hebrews 7

Galatians 6:16, 3:29 & Philippians 3:3 | Are we spiritual Jews?

December 1, 2021 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • Galatians 6:16, Galatians 3:29, Philippians 3:3

These three verses in Paul’s epistles are often used by ones who claim that Christians today are Israel, or spiritual Jews. While I know we are not Israel, just what is Paul referring to in these verses?

November 30, 2021 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • Matthew 21:18–19

Why did Jesus cause the fig tree to wither and die?

November 12, 2021 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • Galatians 5:22, Philippians 1:11

What, if any, is the difference between “the fruit of the Spirit” in Galatians 5:22 and “the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ,…” in Philippians 1:11?

2 Corinthians 11:1-2 | Why does Paul speak of us "as a chaste virgin to Christ"?

November 11, 2021 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • 2 Corinthians 11:1–2

Though I am persuaded that the term “the bride of Christ” belongs to God’s program with Israel, it is puzzling when Paul in II Corinthians 11:2 says, “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.”

1 and 2 Kings | How did the people of Israel get to where they are in the books of I and II Kings, a

October 11, 2021 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • 2 Kings 25, 1 Kings 1

How did the people of Israel get to where they are in the books of I and II Kings, and what happened to put them there?

1 Corinthians 10:1 | Why does Paul refer to the ones who came out of Egypt as "our fathers"?

September 8, 2021 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • 1 Corinthians 10:1

Why does Paul refer to the ones who came out of Egypt as “our fathers” when he says, “Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea”? Is it the same as the fatherhood of Abraham, as in Romans 4?

August 11, 2021 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • James 2:17–26

Why does James say in James 2:26 that “faith without works is dead”?

Matthew 10:16 | Who are the wolves mentioned?

July 28, 2021 • Josh Strelecki, Keith R. Blades • Matthew 10:16

When Jesus says in Matthew 10:16, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves”; what is this all about and who are the “wolves”?
