Welcome to Eschatology simply defined means the study of last things. That is, eschatology is primarily concerned with the final prophetic events mentioned in the Bible.

Eschatology is one of the most well-attended areas of theology, even though most people have never heard of the term, let alone know what the term means. Over the last 40 years the subject of Bible prophecy has been popularized to an extent never before experienced in history, primarily due to the inventions of radio, television, and of course the internet. Millions are able to log on, turn on, and turn up sermons, fictitious novels, movies and television shows dealing with end-time events. Awareness of, and obsession with, Bible prophecy has grown exponentially as a result this era surrounding the turn of the millennium. Articles have been featured on the covers of Time, Life, Newsweek, and virtually every tabloid that exists. Millions of readers have purchased books, both fiction and non-fiction, by authors such as Hal Lindsey and Tim Lahaye. Countless internet websites promote Bible Prophecy and eschatological subjects. A search on any major search engine for the words "Bible Prophecy" will yield millions of pages of Bible Prophecy information.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of those who have been exposed to Bible prophecy interpret Revelation and other prophetic contexts in the Bible from a twentieth/twenty-first century newspaper/technologically-driven perspective rather than a biblical perspective. Many will cite certain events like the turmoil in the middle east, the widespread use of credit cards and computers, and the creation of the internet as signs that the coming of Jesus Christ is near. This is all done in the name of "Bible Prophecy," and without asking the question, What did Jesus Christ mean when He said that He would return before some of His disciples died?

Matthew 16:27-28 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. {28} Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

Many scholars and students who engage in the study of Bible prophecy are proud to affirm that Christ and the apostles were not mistaken and that they certainly did not lie. At we concur with that philosophy. Therefore we must ask the question: If Jesus was not mistaken and did not lie, then how are we to interpret this verse and other verses that speak of Christ's coming as an event that was imminent to those in the first century? Those who hold to a more liberal interpretation of theology believe that Jesus was mistaken and that He thought He would come in His kingdom before some of His apostles died. Skeptics and liberals believe that Christ died on the cross having been disappointed that He was unable to come in His kingdom in the glory of His Father with all His holy angels to reward His servants and His enemies. He told His disciples that He would return before some of them died. intends to focus on this very important subject that supports the credibility of Christ and the credibility of the apostles. Verses, like the one above, that often go ignored by those who insist that Christ and the apostles were referring to a far-removed future generation, thousands of years after their century, are found in virtually every apostolic writing:

Romans 13:11-12 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. {12} The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

1 Cor 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

Hebrews 10:37 For yet a very little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

James 5:7-8 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. {8} Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

1 Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last hour: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last hour.

And perhaps most conspicuously, the first three verses in the book of Revelation express that the events of which John would write were about to take place:

Revelation 1:1-3 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: {2} Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. {3} Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

The book concludes with at least three statements that strongly imply that the events mentioned in Revelation were imminent:

Revelation 22:6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

Revelation 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Most modern-day interpreters of Bible Prophecy take the prophetic events mentioned in the New Testament and thrust them thousands of years into the future rather than examining them within their first-century context. There is little or no regard given to what appear to be statements that declare the return of Jesus Christ to be imminent for those first-century readers. desires to provide solutions to the confusion that exists among those who study the subject of Bible prophecy.
