21: 22 for it’s historical and “past” significance), is at hand, Mr.Seraiah fails to take into account the Greek text of this passage.That means using the Biblical words to so describe it.
This however, is the outcome when taking into consideration the immediate and wider view of the context of chapter ten of Matthew’s Gospel. Is it not to the twelve in the first century scenario of Palestine?
This is the primary Greek word used to communicate the uniqueness of what Christ Himself described His Coming to be in the writings of Matthew (24: 3, 27, 37, 39), to 1 Corinthians (15: 23), to the Thessalonians (1 Thessalonians 2: 19, 3: 13, 4: 15, 5: 23, 2 Thessalonians 2: 1, & 8). The dictionary entry of the word “advent” in Webster’s New World Dictionary of the American Language- Second College Edition, says that while the word does refer to “a coming”, (the Latin “advenire”, to come), it’s primary definition is stated thusly: “The period including the first four Sundays just before Christmas.” The last two entries do make reference to its use in not only the birth of Christ, but as the Second Coming of Christ as an arrival or coming.
The uniqueness of the word continues on in James 5: 7-9, and in 2 Peter 1: 16 & 3: 4, 12. Apparently is Seraiah’s mind, the phrase “Final Advent” indicates that the one that took place in AD 70 (a “type” of a coming that Seraiah and those of like mind do admit to) was in itself not the last one. We can observe that to term the Parousia of Christ as an “Advent”, leads to other understandings of the word that are separated from Biblical context’s that point to a first century return.
