    This is not a trick question, and I am not trying to start an argument. I simply don't understand what they are talking about. Any comment or theory will be appreciated.

    TL, I have no idea what the question means. Linier means in a line or line like. I think you need to ask the questioner for more details. If they asked me that question I would just say....HUH? :laugh:

    You interweb searches may be more fruitful if you use this spelling: linear.

    Perhaps they meant the Pre-trib reading of the visions/events described in Revelation is LINEAR and the Post-Trib reading is not.

    I have never heard of "linier". Perhaps they meant "linear", but like you, I still don't know that would relate to eschatology.

    If "linear" is the correct word (it seems obvious now in that context :tonofbricks:), then it's most likely talking about the ordering of events. That each event mentioned occurs chronologically one after the other, where other interpretations have the same events repeating with more detains added, or insets that go to another time to connect it with the events.

    Thanks for all the help. I think it probably does mean that everything is in chronological order. Thanks again for all your suggestions and help.
