Dr. John Whitcomb joins Brannon for this installment of Ask Dr. John. Question:
Humans for millennia have used astronomical events to mark time, though long ago they did not fully understand how the solar system works. Nevertheless, the day was based on the rotation of the earth, the month was based on the revolving of the moon around the earth and the year was based on the revolving of the earth around the sun. Did the ancients have any form of week, or did that first come about when God gave Israel the seven-day week, based on Gods week of creation (Gen. 1:1- 2:3; Ex. 20:8-11; 31:12-17)?
Question: If the 10 virgins of Matt. 25:1-13 were all called and all went to meet the bridegroom, do we know if the five foolish ones were not saved?
