33 Parallels of Revelation and Josephus’ “War of the Jews”

We explore some of the many parallels between Josephus’ first-century history and the Book of Revelation.
In these videos, we are seeking to strip away the false assumptions and unbiblical “traditions of men” that hinder understanding the nature of “the Day of the Lord” or “the second coming,” as it is commonly called.  The meaning of this event is obscured by futuristic assumptions and must be comprehended using a sound, contextual hermeneutic allowing scripture to interpret scripture.   We are espousing “fulfilled eschatology”. 

*The Greek word “ge” is often translation earth or land, but frequently is a reference to “The Land,” that is, the land of Israel. 

** The usual translation of Rev. 9:16, is 200 million.  In ancient times, a myriad was 10,000.  We question the usual multiplication. 

*** tribes, languages, and nations appears to be a reference to Israel and the many provinces from which the people originated.  See Acts 2: 9-11
