    I am creating a number of questions and below are just a few. This is a overall sweep of eschatology Prophecy and not just a focus on the book of Revelation.

    Which of the following prophecies FROM the Olivet Discourse have been fulfilled?

    A. The Second return of Christ
    B. The destruction of the Temple in AD 70
    C. The Abrahamic Covenant
    D. The Great Apostasy
    E. The worldwide Flood as mentioned in Gen 6:7
    F. The Destruction of the Northern Kings in Josh 11:1-15
    G. The Curse of Eli’s Family (1 Sam 2:12-17)

    Name the The Four Pivotal Events of History

    Which one of the four pivotal events has not yet happened?

    What new era will be introduced by Christ’s seconding coming?

    Which FOUR NT books do not contain teachings on Christ’s second coming?

    Of the following passages tell the class if they are a reference to the rapture or the second coming.

    Mk 13:24-37
    Jn 14:1-3
    Rm 14:10
    Eph 4:30
    1 Thes 3:13
    2 Thes 1:7-10
    1 Pt 5:4
    Tit 2:13

    The Doctrine of the Rapture (like the Doctrine of the Trinity) is a teaching not taught in the scripture because the word is not used in the Bible

    True or False

    Got more.. Mostly using Lahaye, but also looked at a Walvoord & Ron Rhodes book. However Rhodes (Cyber Meltdown) may sensationalize like Rosenberg sometimes.

    Lahaye is a fake.
    He got rich and famous taking the teachings of a pedophile, adding "Christianity", and writing fiction based on Darby and Scofield's heresy.

    I don't know about LeHaye and pedophiles but I do believe he is a fake. His Left Behind series is a disgrace and to make matters worse they came out with a child's version. Money! Money! Money!

    The doctrine of the rapture is not taught in Scripture! The Doctrine of the Trinity is clearly taught in Scripture though the word is not used! Comparison of these two doctrines is the same as comparing truth with falsehood!

    And Walvoord gets pretty sensational sometimes. He believes that David is coregent with Jesus Christ in the so-called earthly millennium.

    This is your Sunday School class? You are going to give your class a test?

    I think its a great idea and it reinforces learning, and besides its not like the book we are covering is all that academic or anywhere near the stuff I had to read in seminary or even undergraduate courses.

    Does your church not get deep or are you surface level (a common problem in churches these days, even Calvinist ones). While you and me disagree on a number of issues, I would like you to know that the latest 2 books I have purchased have been from Arminian/Dispensationalist. One from Ron Rhodes on the End times, and another in OT Theology from a Arminian author. I could not find a book as detailed and better written among the Reformed authors, and besides a topic like that one it does not matter what you are.

    I always thought that you teach first, and then test afterward, but it's your class.

    Tell us how it turns out.

    Its a discussion based class and so most of us already know this material. Besides pop quizzes are always fun and challenging. I had a prof in seminary that would do this.

    A question for you.

    Name the passage of scripture that is the first prophecy of the coming of Christ.

    A. Gen 6:5
    B. Isa 55:1
    C. Gen 2:15
    D. Num 4:3
    E. Gen 3:15

    The only books I will mention will be these.

    Revelation Commentaries
    Because the Time is Near- John MacArthur
    Revelation- John Walvoord
    Be Victorious- Warren Wiersbe

    Sure. I achieved in the top 1% of test takers, when I took my G.E.D., except for in the category entitled "interpreting literature and the arts".
    In that category, I was in the
    85%.
    I was honored that those perverts didn't like my take on this present world's nonsense.
    I am honored when Darby and Scofield flunk me in an eschatology exam.

    Lahaye took the wacky philosophy of the twisted pervert, Plato :a man who enjoyed reclining on a daybed, while being served grapes by nude prepubescent boys and philosophying.

    Good answer. Satan was cast out of Heaven before the fall but not entirely sure, but I know or I believe it was in between the creation of the heavens, angels, and Adam and Eve. However this may be a OT Theology type of question and may go beyond mere Bible Prophecy.

    In fairness, Evangelist is going to attempt to substitute teach a class full of biblically ignorant "students", and (according to another thread) he has not taught a SS class in a while.

    This is probably going to be a very humbling experience, in my estimation.

    I taught a similar class last year, and it is not easy to try to engage a class full of people who aren't interested in delving any deeper than dust.

    Many (or most) have no interest in comparing scripture with scripture, discovering context, word usage, original languages, or anything of the sort.

    I was a substitute teacher for bible study one week about two years ago, and brought a concordance, lexicon, and an interlinear NT. The bible study was titled "How to Study the Bible"

    I asked how many had ever used an interlinear - none had ever heard of such a thing

    What about a lexicon? - One person knew what it is, but had never used one

    ok, how about a Strong's concordance? None had ever used one.

    That included every single person except the pastor, who went to seminary.


    Try talking to that bunch about anything besides behavior and social issues, and they're deer in the headlights

    Olivet Discourse? My bet is that maybe one person will know what that means.

    Eschatology? It'll sound like Greek to them :rolleyes:


    I don't envy him at all. It's not an easy task to try to fill in for one week and make an impact. The questions are a good way to incite discussion, even if one doesn't agree with the eschatological structure or the theological system from which it is derived.

    You've got to take into account the mindset and immaturity of the class. Believe me, I have experience with this type of class. Dust deep, and content to stay there. They don't know enough to care, and don't care enough to know.

    Good teaching does not simply inform, it stirs the mind to think - and questions can go a long way to accomplish that.

    I think the quiz is probably too much for his type of class, and he'll probably spend most of the time explaining the questions instead of getting dialogue.

    But these are just my thoughts. God can do amazing things through one person. Go teach with confidence

    IF he is going to teach a class of Biblically ignorant students eschatology is certainly the wrong place to start.

    If you are teaching a class of Biblical illiterates why in the world would you try to talk about Eschatology?:BangHead::BangHead::BangHead:

    I agree wholeheartedly. But remember that he is going to sub for one week, and he has been asking eschatology questions on this board for a couple of weeks.

    I see you've asked him the question as to why, but I would surmise that the theme was already set before he was asked to teach for one week

    Now it came to pass on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Jehovah, that Satan also came among them. Job 1:6

    Again it came to pass on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Jehovah, that Satan came also among them to present himself before Jehovah. Job 2:1

    17 And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject unto us in thy name.
    18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan fallen as lightning from heaven. Lk 10

    5 And she was delivered of a son, a man child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto his throne.
    9 And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him.
    10 And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accuseth them before our God day and night. Rev 12

    It was it was Christ who defeated the devil. He accuses us no more.
