The subject of eschatology—or the doctrine of final things—is a fascinating subject. The mysterious nature of biblical prophecy demands that the interpreter search for meaning with understanding. But this also means that prophecy can be open to a variety of interpretations, some of them more fanciful than others. It is important, therefore, at the beginning of our study to separate sensationalism from substance. In this three-part series, we will first look at the various ways that biblical prophecies have been obviously misused and misapplied. Next we will begin to look at the various pieces of prophecy and where they must be placed upon the eschatological timetable.
