Every month we gain more readers and listeners to Eschatos Ministries, and it is a shame that helpful blog post articles end up crawling into the archive. So every so often I like to blow off the dust from evergreen material and highlight it again. Here is an interview of the three positions, with myself […]
Three Views of the Rapture – Pre-Tribulationism (Michael Svigel), Pre-Wrath (Alan Kurschner), and Post-Tribulationism (Craig Blomberg)
We have a lot of new readers on this blog, so I thought it would be helpful to re-post an interview where I represented the pre-wrath position. Michael Svigel represented pre-tribulationism, and Craig Blomberg represented post-tribulationism. There was a final Q&A section. Mike Svigel – Pretribulationism Alan Kurschner – Prewrath Craig Blomberg – Posttribulationism Questions and […]
NOW POSTED: All Three Interviews on Three Rapture Views
The final interview is posted, which is the pretribulational position. I have linked all three interviews below.

His argument depends much on his […]

It is unbiblical. Nowhere in the Bible does it teach Christians not to be “that […]
Part 1 – Why the “Coming” in Matthew 24:36–44 Refers Back to Verses 30–31
Pretribs have three big proof texts: James 5:7–9, Titus 2:11–14, and Matthew 24:36. It is the latter proof text that I will split up in a six part series. This first part is the introduction explaining the argumentation for their interpretation. In the next five parts I will give five reasons why the “Coming” in […]
Will There Be Degrees of Rewards in the Kingdom of Heaven?
Craig L. Blomberg argues in his article: I do not believe there is a single NT text that, when correctly interpreted, supports the notion that believers will be distinguished one from another for all eternity on the basis of their works as Christians. What is more, I am convinced that when this unfounded doctrine of […]
