    “What about when the author of Revelation refers to the ‘Lamb slain from the foundation of the world’”

    Presumably you are referring to Rev 13:8. The English translation of the relative Greek text is a crass mistake found in the KJV (and derivatives). The “from the foundation of the world” (apo katabolês kosmou) is NOT relative to “the lamb slain” (tou arnou tou esphagmenou), BUT to “everyone whose name has not been written [since the foundation of the world] in the book of life”. It is sufficient to know a bit of Greek grammar, and to compare Rev 13:8 with Rev 17:8 … 🙂

    Dale,

    If I understand correctly, your view of John 8:58, for example, would be that Jesus was planned before the world was made in the mind of God? He had a notional pre-existence but not a personal, conscious pre-existence?
