Matthew 24

What Will They Do With Luke 17?

In the study of eschatology there is a tendency to avoid passages that are hard and difficult; especially when they are hard to harmonize with one’s own views of eschatology. The honest student will readily admit the tendency to want to do this at times. Legion are the passages that are very difficult to sort through, and all who have…

Typology and Covenant Eschatology

Does realized eschatology violate a fundamental law of Biblical typology? According to Wayne Jackson, Christian Courier, March 1991, it does. This article, the second in a series written to review Jackson’s piece, will seek to demonstrate that covenant eschatology is correct in asserting that the flood of Noah was indeed a type of the destruction which fell on the Jewish…

A Survey: Eschatology in Hebrews

Several basic premises still appear to be unknown to Bible students about the epistle to the Hebrews (such as author, place of origin, etc.; this scribe believes there may be an argument for Apollos’ being the author as there is an argument for Paul), but this should not deter readers from seeing the encouragement and promises found in this letter.…

More on Heaven and Earth

It is unfortunate that modern Bible students are not more familiar with Biblical terminology. The term "heaven and earth" is an example where careful study will reveal weaknesses in traditional interpretations. In Isaiah 51:15-16 Jehovah, speaking to Israel, said he gave them the Mosaic Covenant, "that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say…

Dealing with Satan

The Binding of Satan

"Satan is bound?!? Why that is ridiculous; just look around. There is evil, temptation, suffering, and immorality. Satan cannot be bound if these things are present." This is a typical response to the contention of realized eschatology that Jesus has fully conquered Satan and destroyed his power. We well recognize the emotional response such a suggestion evokes. But we kindly…

Welcome to eschatology.org

Eschatology is the study of final events, the second coming, or the "last times" as spoken of in the Bible. Are you confused about the meaning of the Last Days in the Bible? Did Jesus fulfill his prophesy of the New Testament concerning his return? Matthew 16:27-28 "For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with…

Your Questions May 5,2006

Question: I would like to ask you some questions pertaining to the observance of the Law. I believe that Paul and the other believing Jews kept the Law until the end of Old Covenant aeon. I think this is made clear in Acts 15. This being so, do you think it would be right to say that Paul and other…
