    DescriptionFrom an author thoroughly committed to the verbal inspiration of the Scriptures comes a completely new commentary on Christ's great eschatological discourse. Based on a reconstruction of the text from all three synoptic gospels (derived from the UBS-3 Greek New Testament), the author presents an interpretation that takes all of the Olivet Discourse material into account. Also included are thorough discussions of past interpretations, hermeneutics, structure, and theology-all from a dispensational premillennial perspective. Understanding the Olivet Discourse is crucial to understanding subsequent New Testament teachings on such topics as the tribulation, the second coming, and events preparatory to Christ's coming earthly rule. Contrary to popular amillennial, postmillennial, and premillennial interpretations, the author makes the case that Christ's last discourse has much to say about the Church at the end of the present age, and its imminent rapture-a truth long obscured, even by many premillennialists.
