Blood and Water from Jesus' Body: The New Temple, the Passover Lamb, and the Red Heifer
A talk from the 69th Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society (Nov. 15-17, 2017). The theme for this year's conference: "The Heritage of the Reformation," points to the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
