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.
Darby left a lasting legacy for us today.
