This book is an extremely valuable introduction to Revelation. The material
arose from years of lectures on Revelation in conferences and in a college
setting, as well as while researching a full-length commentary on Revelation. The
book is written by Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., Th.D., author of Before Jerusalem
Fell: Dating the Book of Revelation.
In this brief work you will discover an in-depth study of Revelation 1:7 as
the theme of Revelation. You will see how it points to the AD 70 judgment of
Israel for rejecting ("piercing") the Messiah, rather than to the history-ending
Second Advent of Christ. Following the pattern of the Old Testament prophets
(especially Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel), Revelation presents a forensic
drama outlining God's divorce decree against Israel, her punishment as an
adulterous harlot, and God's taking a new bride, the Christian Church.
You will also learn how Jerusalem aligned herself with Rome to persecute
Christians, becoming the harlot who sat upon the beast (Rev 17:3). Her
high-priestly aristocracy appears in Revelation as the false prophet.
You will see how John consoles the first century saints by providing them
with one important glance into the distant future, showing that their Christian
faith is here for the long run (Rev. 20).
You will discover documentary evidence showing that Revelation was fulfilled
in the first century destruction of the Temple, which concluded the old
covenant economy and closed out the typological worship in the temple. In this
regard, you will discover parallels between the Epistle to the Hebrews and the
Book of Revelation.
This is a fascinating approach to Revelation following in the train of
thought of Milton S. Terry and Philip Carrington. To order, click on the following
