Why Akathleptos?

Why Akathleptos? Because it means Uncontainable. God is infinite. Hence, the whole universe cannot contain Him. The term also refers to the incomprehensibility of God. No man can know everything about God. We can know Him personally but not exhaustively, not even in Heaven.

Why Patmos? Because the church is increasingly marginalized and exiled from the culture.

Why Pen-Names? So the focus is on the words and not who wrote them. We prefer to let what we say stand on its own merit. There is precedent in church history for this - i.e., the elusive identity of Ambrosiaster who wrote in the 4th century A.D.

“Truth is so obscured nowadays, and lies so well established, that unless we love the truth we shall never recognize it." Blaise Pascal

Bodily Resurrection Refutes (70 AD) Preterism

William Lane Craig and NT Wright argue that bodily resurrection refutes Preterism (the Christian eschatological view that interprets either some [partial Preterism] or all [full Preterism] prophecies of the Bible as events which have already happened in 70 AD with the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple.) Wright's book "The Resurrection of the Son of God" [here on Amazon] is a magnificent treatise and the single best book on the Resurrection that I've read. It has my highest endorsement.
