Thoughts and Questions
See LAB webpage here 1. How would you describe the age between the first and second coming of Jesus (the age that we live in now)? This age is the last days, before the complete, full coming of the kingdom of God. It is the period when the kingdom of God first came with the coming of Christ, and before Christ's return. 2. Read the Principle for Bible Reading (excerpt below). Do you agree with the idea of already/not yet? Why or why not? "The Already and Not Yet We live in an overlap of two ages: the present age of sin and death and the coming age of Christ’s complete reign. We are no longer merely in the age of fallen humanity because Christ has come and ushered in his kingdom into this age ( Matthew 12:28 , Luke 17:20–21 ). In other words, we no longer live in the winter of sin and death looking forward to summer, but because of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection, he brought spring, which totters on the brink of everlasting summer for his people. The already/not yet distinction (referring to things that are already true/real but not yet fully realized) aids our understanding of how to make sense of the Bible, especially as it depicts the Christian life. The Spirit made us new ( 2 Corinthians 5:17 ), and yet we still need to be renewed in our minds ( Romans 12:1–2 ). Jesus freed us decisively from sin ( Romans 6:6 , John 8:36 ), and yet we still need to put the old man to death ( Romans 8:13 ). Christ brought the kingdom to earth ( Matthew 12:28 ), and yet wars, murder, and suffering take place. We live in the age of already and not yet: caught between winter and summer, death and eternal bliss, Christ’s first and second coming." I wondered how I would answer this question if I did not look at the LAB and did not hear about this from sermons and speakers. So I decided to use the search function in biblearc. I did a search using this parameter "age OR end OR kingdom" in the New Testament. I then went through the results and selected the relevant verses. From there I saw that the results matched the above paragraph. In addition, I include the verses used by Pastor Piper in the LAB episode. I also highlighted phrases concerning this present last days since the coming of Christ (in blue highlight ) and those concerning the full coming of the kingdom ( gold highlight ). 3. Can you think of any practical implications that living between the ages has for your life? There are many. Among them: Appropriate expectations of life in this last days Understanding why I still struggle in sin Having hope for the future Knowing that the "apparent" delay in Christ's return is a matter of perspective. To God, it's just 2 days (one day like a thousand, this being 2,000 years after Christ's resurrection) Results using biblearc search tool on "age OR end OR kingdom" in the NT:

The Rich Man 17 Now 26 as Jesus 27 was starting out on his way, someone ran up to him, fell on his knees, and said, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 28 18 Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? 29 No one is good except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘ Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud , honor your father and mother .’” 30 20 The man 31 said to him, “Teacher, I have wholeheartedly obeyed 32 all these laws 33 since my youth.” 34 21 As Jesus looked at him, he felt love for him and said, “You lack one thing. Go, sell whatever you have and give the money 35 to the poor, and you will have treasure 36 in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 But at this statement, the man 37 looked sad and went away sorrowful, for he was very rich. 38 23 Then 39 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 The disciples were astonished at these words. But again Jesus said to them, 40 “Children, how hard it is 41 to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel 42 to go through the eye of a needle 43 than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” 26 They were even more astonished and said 44 to one another, “Then 45 who can be saved?” 46 27 Jesus looked at them and replied, “This is impossible for mere humans, 47 but not for God; all things are possible for God.” 28 Peter began to speak to him, “Look, 48 we have left everything to follow you!” 49 29 Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, 50 there is no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for my sake and for the sake of the gospel 30 who will not receive in this age 51 a hundred times as much - homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, fields, all with persecutions 52 - and in the age to come , eternal life. 53

2 Peter 3:3-8
3 Above all, understand this: 8 In the last days blatant scoffers 9 will come, being propelled by their own evil urges 10 4 and saying, 11 “Where is his promised return? 12 For ever since 13 our ancestors 14 died, 15 all things have continued as they were 16 from the beginning of creation.” 5 For they deliberately suppress this fact, 17 that by the word of God 18 heavens existed long ago and an earth 19 was formed out of water and by means of water. 6 Through these things 20 the world existing at that time was destroyed when it was deluged with water. 7 But by the same word the present heavens and earth have been reserved for fire, by being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. 21 8 Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice, 22 that a single day is like a thousand years with the Lord and a thousand years are like a single day .
