Questions for Discussion

1. List the major passages in both OT and NT which refer to the return of Christ. Why is it mistaken to expect a detailed description of it? What will be its main general features?

2. How would you answer claims that biblical references to Christ’s return concern (a) his first coming only, (b) his coming spiritually to people now through the preaching of the gospel?

3. What does Scripture teach about the time of Christ’s return? What does this imply for our lives now?

4. What does the Bible teach about the role of (a) the antichrist, (b) Israel, in relation to the end?

5. What is the ‘two covenant’ view, and what are its problems?

6. Which view of the millennium do you find most consistent with biblical teaching? What are its implications for (a) the life of the church, (b) your personal discipleship, (c) evangelism, (d) Christian concern for social issues?
