The second volume continues Darby’s synopsis of the Old Testament, beginning with Ezra. In this volume, Darby includes an interpretation of the Psalms which connects the words of David to Christ’s suffering and death. This volume also contains introductions to the prophets and to the nature of prophecy in general. Some prophecy, he says, is meant to warn Israel, while other prophecy promises future glory. Darby’s impact on the role of prophecy, the process of prophetic interpretation, and the reading of apocalyptic literature in the modern church has been felt ever since.

John Nelson Darby

John Darby (1800–1882), an evangelist, was known as the father of dispensationalism. He attended Westminster School and Trinity College. Darby became a lawyer, but he practiced law for just one year because he thought it was incompatible with his religious beliefs. He was ordained as a deacon in the Church of England in 1825 and became a priest in 1826.

While a priest, Darby realized he disagreed with the Church of England’s rituals and ideas. He gathered like-minded individuals to form the movement later known as the Plymouth Brethren and left the Church of England in 1832. Darby influenced individuals such as C. I. Scofield and Charles Henry Mackintosh, whose writing contributed to the rise of fundamentalism in America.

Darby has authored several titles, including the 1890 Darby Bible, his Synopsis of the Books of the Bible (5 vols.), and several writings, letters, and notes included in The Collected Writings of John Nelson Darby collection.
