reproduced from 1&2 Thessalonians for the Practical Messianic a summary for Messianic teaching and preaching Daniel, Ezekiel, Revelation, Matthew 24, Zechariah: these are all the parts of Scripture that people commonly consider to be related to the phenomenon known as “Bible prophecy.”[1] Most of the attention that is given to those who examine the end-time themes of Scripture are often focused around these texts.
