Who are the 144,000 in Revelation 7:1-8?
Are the trumpet judgments literal or symbolic (Revelation 8; 11)?
What is the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:18)?
Readers who have questions about the book of Revelation usually don t want to wade through pages of commentary to find their answers. Prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock offers a helpful solution in this concise Q&A format.
Questions are grouped in broad categories that focus on interpretation, background information, Jesus Christ, and the letters to the churches. A final category, The Consummation, is further divided into subparts that address the tribulation, the second coming, the millennium, and more.
These easy-to find and easy-to-understand responses to the most commonly asked questions about the book of Revelation will empower readers to mine its riches and stand strong in their faith."
This newest contribution to the 40 Questions series continues the tradition of excellent research presented in accessible language and clear writing. Designed for both students and general readers, this resource helps them make sense of one of the Bible's most difficult topics.
Schnabel, a professor at a leading seminary and the author of several major works, looks at the future of the world, the church, and Israel; the return of Jesus; and the millennium and the final judgment. He answers questions related to the rapture, the 144,000, the identity of the two witnesses, Armageddon, how to interpret Revelation, heaven and hell, and so forth.
The result is an even-handed treatment that avoids sensationalism and a "newspaper headline" approach to prophecy, that is, interpreting prophecy according to current events. Rather, Schnabel carefully studies the biblical text in light of its first-century context and draws biblically-based conclusions.
Other volumes in the 40 Questions series include 40 Questions About Elders and Deacons by Benjamin Merkle, 40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible by Robert Plummer, and 40 Questions About Christians and Biblical Law by Thomas Schreiner.
Each position Erickson examines includes (1) a brief overview, (2) its history, (3) a more thorough examination of its major concepts and of the arguments offered in support of them, and (4) an evaluation of both its positive and negative aspects.

That there would be striking parallels between Noah's day and the end times--with warnings of God's imminent judgment upon the world.
Is Jesus' prophecy now being fulfilled? And if yes, how then should we respond?
