SPEAKERS Dr. Hal Habecker

I have been deeply impressed in the last few years with the value of aging people in the scriptures. A lot of people don't stop to think how old was Paul, when he wrote the for prison epistles. He was in his early 60s, just a few years away from his death. We track Daniel through the book of Daniel into his 90s. The apostle John wrote the Gospel of John at the earliest in his 70s or maybe in his 80s. Most people think he wrote revelation at age 90. So I like to ask people, What would you do? Well, what would you write in the last year of your life if you knew your death is imminent? What would you say? So aging people are all over the scriptures and older people often miss this. So how do you miss it makes all the difference in the world.
