About the Book

What began in the 2002 edition as essays of definition has become a true apology based upon typological exegesis. Paul argued that the invisible things of God, even His attributes, were knowable by the things made. He also argued that the physical precedes the spiritual. As such, circumcised Israel functions as the revealing shadow of the Israel that is circumcised of heart. So A Philadelphia Apologetic is, ultimately, an argument for ancient Israel’s Passover liberation and exodus from Egypt functioning as a shadow and type of the second Passover liberation of the Church from indwelling sin and death.
