Shea’s volume carefully examines judgment in the Old Testament, the identification of the little horn power, the year/day principle, and October 22, 1844, as the antitypical Day of Atonement.

“The importance in salvation history of the events involved in these apocalyptic prophecies also emphasizes the point that longer than literal time periods are necessary for their accomplishment. Furthermore, the emphasis on ‘the time of the end’ in some of the prophecies of Daniel implies that their time periods extend down to that ‘time of the end’ and delimit it. Only symbolic time standing for longer periods of historical time could reach that far.” (Page 102)

“The difference is the frame of time in which such prophecies are set. The other prophets prophesied against nations that were contemporary with them, whereas Daniel’s apocalyptic judgments were pronounced upon nations that would rise and fall from his time until the establishment of God’s eternal kingdom. Thus, due to the similarity of this literature, the prophetic oracles provide the background for the apocalyptic judgments of Daniel. This is but one of a number of links between classical prophecy and apocalyptic.” (Page 2)

“If one follows the first school of thought, the prescribed purification was all completed before January 1, 164 b.c. If one follows the second line of interpretation, it refers to a judgment going on now in heaven. This has not yet happened, according to the third view. When it does, events in Jerusalem and Israel will be involved.” (Page 33)

“Classical prophecy concentrates on the short-range time view while apocalyptic includes the long-range view.” (Page 71)

“The situations of Nadab and Abihu and Korah, Dathan, and Abiram are the only cases where judgments (immediately fatal) were specifically identified as issuing directly from the sanctuary. Both involved man’s contrary plans about how he would minister in the presence of God in defiance of His specific instructions for those ministrations.” (Page 4)
