  1. Thanks for the list! I wasn't familiar with any but Alec Motyer's and O. Palmer Robertson's work.

    personal request: How can I get on your blog list? I didn't want to ask this "publicly" but I couldn't find a way to contact you otherwise. (delete this if you like)

  2. William Webster also authored Behold Your King: Prophetic Proofs that Jesus is the Messiah.

    "In Behold Your King, William Webster examines the historical evidence for the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy in the life of Jesus, prophecies written hundreds of years before his birth. Behold Your King provides one of the most extensive documentations of Jewish interpretation of messianic prophecy in the English language, from the Talmud, Targums, Midrash and Rabbinic sources, proving that the primary New Testament teachings concerning the Messiah are supported by these ancient Jewish writings. A careful and honest examination of the historical facts can lead us to only one conclusion: Jesus Christ is the long promised Messiah, the Son of God, the Savior and King of all nations."

  3. Hi Eddie Eddings,

    I think you just go into your Blogger account and click on the Add button. See here for example. Or check this out.

    If it doesn't work, please let me know?

    Cool, thanks.


  4. Or did you mean something else like on an email list?

    BTW, I don't know if you have an RSS reader. I think that'd be the best way to go. If you have Gmail, then you could use Google Reader for example.

  5. Actually, I have already added your fantastic blog to my blog list...I was trying to get my blog, Calvinistic Cartoons, listed among your own list of blogs.

  6. ...only if you find it acceptable or not, of course.

  7. Hi Eddie,

    We formed a special committee over the issue; had several in-house meetings to discuss it at length; invited several guest speakers for a week long conference; brought together disparate opinions for an in-depth debate at a neutral university lecture hall; several of the guest speakers published their research and debates in articles in top tier blogging journals; others circulated their research findings in paper and in person via lectures at academic institutions such as Harvard and Oxford; later all were sponsored by Cambridge University Press to publish book length treatments and a critical analytical series over the issue; and much more. In the end, we came to the conclusion that we could put your weblog on our blogroll. :-)

  8. My wife did the same thing before she said yes to my marriage proposal.
    Thank you. I am honored that you went through that much trouble.
