The End Times
Since we do not know the hour or the day, let this be the hour, let this be the day, let this be the time that we live and die.
John J. Pilch
Planning For The End
In the light of the data from paleopathology (the study of ancient disease), it would seem Jesus expected the political end of Israel much sooner than it actually occurred.
Teachers who instruct others in piety will in their turn receive from God such recompense as befits those who gather the obedient into eternal life.
Followers of Jesus will be supported by the Holy Spirit, the gospel will reach all nations, and there is a heap of housekeeping to be done in the time between.
Reginald H. Fuller
The Son of man comes from heaven to earth on the clouds with power and great glory.
