Contents:  Scenario Based Contents for this Site

To facilitate teaching the premillennial viewpoint of eschatology, the following syllabus is provided.  This outline was followed in a recent adult Bible class on Sunday mornings.  In general, the time for teaching each chapter lasted about 30 minutes, so typically one chapter a session was covered.  Some, like Daniel 11 took three weeks, and some, like Ezekiel 47 and 48 were combined in a single session.  

This scenario based outline is based on a dispensational interpretation of Scripture.  As a result, the study focuses on a suggested order of events that may unfold in prophetic passages yet to be fulfilled.  As seen below, the order is the study of the Gentile era, the fulfillment of God's promises to Israel, the Lord's message to Israel concerning the tribulation and His return, the church age, the resurrection and rapture of the church, the seven years of tribulation, the Lord's return, His millennial reign, the great white throne judgment, and eternity future.  However, there are some of the chapters below where there is no consensus on the order of their fulfillment relative to other prophetic events.  For example, this site suggests that the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 and Ezekiel 39 will occur following the rapture of the church, and before the beginning of the seven years of tribulation.  Others submit that the invasion of Israel by Gog and his confederates will occur during the battle of Armageddon.  In these cases, the order of events suggested in this site are not dogmatically held to, but a rationale is provided to the reader for posting events in the order as they appear in this site.

The arrangement of these passages are intended to facilitate a better understanding the future events that are prophesied in scripture, and to demonstrate the wholeness and completeness of the Word.  There is more that can and should be taught on this subject, but as one progresses through this study, a lot of the other passages are drawn into the examination of each chapter below.  Embedded in each chapter, in a majority of cases, are links to other notes and timelines that further elaborate on the subject of that chapter being studied.
