Scholar: Revelations won't give you the answer

If you’re looking for the date that the world will end, you won’t find it in Revelations, according to a biblical scholar who spoke at First Presbyterian Church Tuesday.

Dr. Craig R. Koester, a professor and the Asher O. and Carrie Nasby chair of New Testament at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minn., said readers of that book of the Bible should read it “contextually and see how it flows in literally and historically.”

“Read Revelations as a whole and see where it leads,” he told a public audience Tuesday evening gathered to hear his talk on “The Open Heaven and the Chaotic Earth: The Book of Revelation and Christian Worship.”

Revelation is considered “provocative and controversial,” he said. If you’re looking for the “end date” of the world, he said, you won’t find it.

It's Revelation. Not "Revelations".

And all the prophecies contained in Revelation were fulfilled in AD70 when Roman General Titus made his final assault on Jerusalem (Babylon the Whore).

The temple in Jerusalem was burned ("...the elements shall melt with fervent heat...") and then dismantled ("...not one stone shall be left upon another...").

"Israel" (Judea) was wiped off the map in AD70 and the area was known only as Palestine.

For 1,878 years it was known as Palestine.

They don't teach this in their history books in their schools and universities because they don't want the truth to be told.

The truth exposes them for who and what they truly are.

God established His Kingdom, New Jerusalem, in AD70 and those who have faith will now inherit it.

Those who are of the kingdom(s) of this world will not inherit New Jerusalem. They will inherit the Lake of Fire.

"Don't be fooled..."

"palestine" was a country and people that arafat made up. I don't think he was around in 70AD. The word never existed before arafat.
