The Millennium


P&R 1957

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Broadly speaking, there are three general systems which profess to set forth the teaching of Scripture regarding the Second Coming of Christ and the future of God’s kingdom: postmillennialism, amillennialism, and premillennialism. Each holds that Scripture is the word of God and is authoritative. Each holds to the same concept of the death of Christ as the sacrifice to satisfy divine justice and the only ground for salvation. Each holds that there will be a future, visible, personal coming of Christ. Each affirms the resurrection of the body, the judgment seat of Christ, rewards for righteousness, and punishment for the wicked. The differences arise because of distinctive methods of interpretation of Scripture employed by each method.

This study on the millennium defines each system of belief as clearly as possible by exploring the writings of representative theologians, the principles of interpretation. Boettner also explains the various conceptions of the anti-Christ, the Great Tribulation, and the rapture. He also explains the history and beliefs of dispensationalism.

In 1925, Boettner began his studies at Princeton, where he was influenced by the writings of Charles Hodge. He graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary with a Th.B. in 1928 and a Th.M. in 1929.
