Students of prophecy often pay more attention to Matthew’s version of the Olivet Discourse because of its greater length and detail.

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I’ve studied what the Bible says about healing for years and years, and two things remain clear to me.  One is that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).   Another is He said anyone with faith in Him would do the things He did (John 14:12).

Surely you have heard about the administration (dispensation) of God’s grace that was given to me for you, that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. (Ephesians 3:2-3)

One of the most difficult things for someone unfamiliar with dispensational theology to understand is why Israel needs to exist at all in the last days,
