We conclude our look at Ezekiel 38 and 39 and the infamous Battle of Armageddon by looking at the different options that have been made available to the serious student to understand just what should be done with these passages. First, though, it would be of some value to “bullet” review the previous information. ARMAGEDDON […]

Now that we have finished looking at the issues surrounding the Battle of Armageddon we will now take a look at battle found in Ezekiel 38 and 29 and how it related to the Gog and Magog invasion found in Revelation 20. Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released […]

We now begin the potentially long and difficult process of working through the final book of Holy Writ. This long misunderstood, often avoided, terrifying, engrossing and beautiful work of worship known as the Revelation of Jesus Christ. The introduction will probably take as many posts as the actual overview of the text. In fact, much […]

The first of our introductory posts will be dealing with the literary styles and forms of literature used in the book or Revelation. The book is both unique in some respects but also employs common literary styles and themes. A little background information and knowledge on these styles will prove quite beneficial. The first question […]

As we continue our introductory discussion on the book of Revelation we will now turn our attention to a discussion of the authorship of Revelation. Though there is little doubt as to the authorship with conservative evangelical camps, there are some liberal and secular historians that do not accept the traditional authorship view. JOHN THE […]

Over the next couple posts we will deal with the very important detail of dating the time the book of Revelation was written. More than any other book in the Bible finding the date of Revelation’s writing has an incredible amount of impact. Views can be created, revised and eliminated just be discovering the time […]

We will begin our examination of the dating of the book of Revelation with the common, traditional and most widely accepted view. The view is so commonly accepted that I would wager if you were to grab the nearest popular Study Bible and turn to the “dating” section of the book of Revelation it will […]

Since we have already discussed the Internal Evidence in a previous post we will now turn our attention to the strongest and most popular argument for the Late Date theory. The date proposed by the late date advocates is usually around 95 AD during the reign of Emperor Domitian. This argument is based on External […]

With this post we will turn our attention toward the Early Date proponents. This will take a couple posts because of the length needed for the argument. Since the early date does not have history on it’s side and is the minority position it will take some extra time and information to possibly convince the […]

In the previous post we discussed the External Evidence and the first of the four Internal Evidence categories. We discovered that the external evidence is lacking. But we also found that the Internal Evidence is strong and will continue to discover this the more we examine the different categories of evidence within the internal evidence […]
