This blog gains its name from the book Steele's Answers published in 1912. It began as an effort to blog through that book, posting each of the Questions and Answers in the book in the order in which they appeared. I began the project on Dec. 10, 2011. I completed it on July 11, 2015. Along the way, I began to also post snippets from Dr. Steele's other writings — and from some other holiness writers of his times. I still do that every once in a while.

On Luke 21:35
QUESTION: Explain "all on earth" in Luke 21:35: "For so shall it come upon all them on the face of the earth."
ANSWER: The Greek word is sometimes translated "earth" and sometimes "land." It probably refers to the land of the Jews.
