In this special rebroadcast the Easter 2005 presentation of the John Ankerberg Show, Dr. John Ankerberg along with some of the world's foremost archaeologists and scholars, explore the four fundamental historical facts that prove Jesus rose from the dead. Almost all secular as well as Christian scholars agree to the historical accuracy of these facts, providing convincing evidence for the resurrection.
Many Christians find themselves confused when reading what the Bible teaches about Christ’s return. Some teach that the Rapture and Second Coming are the same event. Others speak of the Rapture and Second Coming as two unique events foretold in biblical prophecy. Which is it? Will there be one coming or two? How do they differ?
In this new, five-program series with Dr. Showers and Dr. DeYoung we investigate the Bible’s teachings on this matter in a series we entitled, One Coming or Two? 8 Differences Between the Rapture and Second Coming. You’ll see that the biblical passages regarding the Rapture and Second Coming of Jesus involve too many differences to refer to the same event and why these differences are important.
Specifically, we will address the biblical teaching of “immanency.” Further, we’ll learn what will occur after the time of the Rapture and before the Second Coming. We will talk about when the war against Israel that is foretold in Ezekiel 38 will take place, the rebuilding of a Jewish Temple on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, the emergence of a global political leader, a one-world government and financial system, and the Battle of Armageddon. Many of today’s events foreshadow these future prophecies.
