That about sums it up

I have been reading through Daniel as part of M'Cheyne Bible Reading Plan, and was doing some reading in Matthew Henry's Commentary about the prophecies concerning the 70 weeks, and the controversy that surrounds all of it, start dates, stop dates, etc. I came across this quote that I thought quite summed it up. What is amazing is that no matter how much I read on a subject, there is still more to do.

The learned Mr. Poole, in his Latin Synopsis, has a vast and most elaborate collection of what has been said, pro and con, concerning the different beginnings of these weeks, with which the learned may entertain themselves.

Thanks for stopping by my site. Glad to have your voice in the conversation.
I like this quote, it's a good reminder that learning doesn't necessarily mean coming to a conclusion. I think I often forget about the journey of knowledge and get to hung up on "knowing the answer." Thanks for sharing!

yep, as you said, "that about sums it up."

I get tickled at those who "KNOW" exactly what is going to happen.

The only thing I can say with 100% certainty is "Jesus will return".

I happen to think it will be sooner than later...sooner than we all think.
