• I just became a follower of Jim Boice.  I never met Jim, but as many of his sermons as I have heard and the many books of his that I have read, it almost feels as if he was my mentor.  Between MacArthur and him, I feel as if I've earned a second seminary degree.  Jim was and still is a great teacher as his legacy lives on and on.....
    1. If Jesus ascended 40 days after his resurrection, which was 3 days after his death on the Passover, isn't it a 7 day waiting period, not 10? If you see competing calendars, with Jesus killed on the day of Prep by one reckoning and the Passover on the other, it is still 6 or 7 days, not 10.
      1. That is a great question/point. As I began to think about this, however, I remembered that Jesus rose on the first day of the week, so the day after the Passover. So, I think Boice's timeline works.
