“Until The Times Of The Gentiles Are Fulfilled” and “Until The Fullness Of The Gentiles Has Come In,” these are two very similar quotes, one from Luke 21 and the other from Romans 11. What dose this mean? How close are we until the times of the Gentiles being fulfilled? In this sermon we will go over the trampling of Jerusalem and the restoration of Jerusalem.
It seems clear Christ was speaking of the physical Jerusalem being trampled under foot, especially with us knowing of the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD. It also seems clear Paul spends the majority of Romans chapter 11 talking about the physical and ethnic Israel being saved after or until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
Reading from Flavius Josephus – War of the Jews – Book 6 – Chapter 5 section 2-3.
