Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, December 2013
The December edition of Tabletalk is out. This issue examines the biblical doctrine of the millennium. Chapter 20 of the Book of Revelation has been the source of controversy for almost two thousand years. The interpretation of this chapter, the only place in the Bible that speaks explicitly of a thousand-year reign of Christ, is made particularly difficult because it is found within a book that is filled with imagery, symbolism, and allusions to Old Testament apocalyptic texts. Well-meaning Christians, therefore, have interpreted the millennium of Revelation 20 in a number of different ways. This issue of Tabletalk will seek to explain the main views of the millennium as well as assist readers in understanding some of the details of the prophecy in Revelation 20.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Keith Mathison, Cornelis Venema, Douglas Kelly, Dennis Johnson, Eric Watkins, R.C. Sproul Jr, J.D. Bridges, Mark Jones, Al Mohler, and Ed Stetzer.
