Written in an easy to understand format and perfect for one-on-one, group, or family study, A Beginner’s Guide to Interpreting Bible Prophecy is an attempt to remedy the confusion over what the Bible says about prophetic material. It begins with the operating premise that the Bible is the best interpreter of itself.
For nearly 2000 years Christians have attempted to read and interpret Scripture through the lens of current events without paying close attention to audience relevance, specific time indicators, the literal translation and comparison of specific words found in prophetic texts, and the transition between the Old and New Testaments.
For many Christians, interpreting Bible prophecy is a complicated task. As a result, they often turn to so-called “Bible Experts” and complicated charts that include gaps in time, outrageous literal interpretations, and numerous claims that current events are prime indicators that the end is near. Many Christians are unaware that the same Bible passages have been used in nearly every generation as “proof” that the end or some aspect of the end (the “rapture”) would take place in their generation.
They’ve all had one thing in common: They’ve all been wrong.
With so much prophetic material in the Bible — somewhere around 25% of the total makeup of Scripture — it seems difﬁcult to argue that an expert is needed to understand such a large portion of God’s Word and so many “experts” could be wrong generation after generation. If God’s Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path” (Psalm 119:105), how do we explain that not a lot of light has been shed on God’s prophetic Word with so little accuracy?
A Beginner’s Guide to Interpreting Bible Prophecy has been designed to help Christians of all ages and levels of experience to study Bible prophecy with confidence.
The Bible can be an intimidating book. It does not have to be. It’s our prayer that this short guide to Bible prophecy will help you to be like the Bereans who examined “the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11).
