The Parousia


Pin It

by J. Stuart Russell

From the Author's Preface to the book: 

"The present volume is an attempt, in a candid and reverent spirit, to clear up this misconception, and to ascertain the true meaning of the Word of God on a subject which holds so conspicuous a place in the teaching of our Lord and His apostles. It is the fruit of many years of patient investigation, and the Author has spared no pains to test to the utmost the validity of his conclusions. It has been his single aim to ascertain what saith the Scripture, and his one desire to be governed by a loyal submission to its authority."

R.C. Sproul, Sr. had this to say about The Parousia: "I can never read the New Testament again the same way I read it before reading The Parousia.  I hope better scholars than I will continue to analyze and evaluate the content of J. Stuart Russell's important work."

Classic defense of the Preterist view. Goes through the entire New Testament and examines every text which talks about the Jesus' coming (parousia) and explains how they were all fulfilled in the first century in connection with Christ's coming in judgment upon the Jewish nation in AD 70.

Originally published in 1878. Examines every NT text which relates to Jesus' coming, showing that it had to occur at AD 70. This is the book which convinced David Chilton and many others. Endorsements by Walt Hibbard, Gary DeMar, Ken Gentry and R. C. Sproul, Sr.

Includes Russell's "Afterword" from his 2nd edition (1887), a picture of Russell, and biographical sketch. Forewords by Walt Hibbard and Ed Stevens.
