1. I like to think about the first century Jewish scholars before I dive into any eschatological discussion. A year before Jesus began his earthly ministry, the Jewish scholars of their day could have given you a detailed story of what Messiah’s coming was going to look like. Of course, it would have been wrong on so many things.

    If they got their expectations of the first coming was so wrong, I think we can have a reasonable expectation that we, too, will not have gotten all our expectations of the second coming/millennial kingdom/new heavens/new earth correct either.

  2. If you would like to investigate the millennium kingdom “set to the music of fiction,” I would recommend “Kingdom Come” by Jerry Jenkins.

What say you?
