500 Years Ago Today

October 31, 2017

Dr. Lawson Stone is an Old Testament Professor I admire and am happy to claim as a college friend IRL. He graciously gives permission to share this with you —

Celebrating the reformation, a mere 500 years ago?

Go back 2556 years to Oct. 31, 539BC. Cyrus the Great captures Babylon and decrees the return of the Jews to Jerusalem, ending the Babylonian Exile and “restarting” the faith of Israel.

Without that Return, there is no Judaism.

No Judaism means no Messiah.

No Messiah means no Jesus, No Jesus means No Church.

No Church means no Reformation.

So if you love the Reformation…. celebrate Cyrus the Great!

— Boom!
