JD: David there are probably a number of different ways to approach this particular subject but what do you think is the best way to deal with it? And what do you think is the strongest Biblical evidence for the sign gifts having ceased in the first century?
DJ: Well one of the things that you find when you’re talking with someone who believes that the sign gifts are still in operations today they will point to Hebrews 13:8 which says Jesus the same yesterday, today and forever and they will suggest that because of what was happening in the first century that that will continue forever because Jesus doesn’t change. And I would say I agree Jesus doesn’t change but we shouldn’t go back to Acts chapter 2 but rather we should go back to Genesis chapter 1 since Jesus was the creator. He is the one who operated miraculously on the earth and gave the miracles throughout all of history.
