Product Description

Did Christ already return?

In the days surrounding their Lord's crucifixion, Jesus's disciples wondered, "When will Christ return?" This vexing question is still asked and still provides much speculation today. It is explored in countless end times books and films and debated in churches and Bible schools.

But what if the second coming already happened?

In this important but neglected nineteenth-century study, author and pastor J. Stuart Russell argues persuasively that Christ's parousia (second coming) was the center of a great cluster of significant events in first-century Jerusalem, including the close of the Jewish economy, the judgment of Israel, the destruction of Jerusalem, and the resurrection of the dead.

First published in 1878, The Parousia was esteemed by contemporaries who may have agreed or disagreed with Russell's conclusions but nevertheless had utmost respect for his exegetical method, his illumination of difficult passages of Scripture, and the popular level on which the book was written.

Pastors, students of the Bible, and anyone suspicious of the current media focus on the end times will treasure this well-reasoned and hope-filled book.

    This book is THE definitive commentary on the "end-times" literature of the Bible. Russell did what few modern scholars have taken the time to do - examine scripture in the light of it's context rather than current events.Agree or disagree, the Russell's scholarship and integrity in handling the Word of God will impress and refresh. You will read scripture with renewed insight.

    J. Stuart Russell does what no modern author today does with all the eschatological passages in the New Testament. He actually interprets them in context of the 1st century church. We who are so impressed with our intellectual arrogance and immediate personal application of scripture in our day miss the real meaning of what God's word really said to the 1st century church. I will be ordering more copies of this title. Thanks for having an accurate 2nd coming book in print. Complete fulfillment is so much more faith building than postponed fulfillment and projected fantasies. The time passages are really the key to understanding the eschaton of God. "Near", "Soon", "about to be", "this generation", "before some of you taste death", really have meaning when seen in the 1st century context, but not today.J. Stuart Russell was man of integrity in handling the scriptures. He didn't twist them to sensationalize and then say "I guess I was mistaken". Any serious Bible student must read this book and compare the Word of God to mens words.
