Where Is Dan?

Q. Can you explain why the tribe of Dan is missing from the list of the 12 tribes of Israel in Revelation 7:4-8?  Dan is listed in the Old Testament and I have read some commentary that the anti-christ might be from the tribe of Dan. I would like to know your views on this. Thanks so much for your Bible Studies they are wonderful and have really helped me to gain Bible knowledge.

The Rapture In Rev. 4?

Q. I have read your page and found it very interesting and I agree on most of what you said.  And yet I have a question. Where on earth do you get Revelation 4 as the rapture of the Church?  I have read Revelation many times and I read it again when I saw your comment on the rapture. What part of Rev 4 do you identify with the rapture?

Israel’s Hardening

Q.  My question is about the destination of the Jews that have been blinded since the Crucifixion.  Romans 11:25 speaks of this blindness.  What verses can you refer me to that explains the destination of those Jews that die while still in their blindness to Jesus being the Messiah?  What is the ultimate destination for the blinded unbelieving Jews since the Crucifixion and when will they be judged?

The 70 Weeks Of Daniel

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Many believe that Daniel 9:24-27 is the most important passage of prophecy in all of Scripture. Almost every mistake I’ve run across in studying the various interpretations of End Times Prophecy can be traced back to a misunderstanding of this passage. Let’s begin the year with an updated and expanded study of this important prophecy.

How Did The Church Become A Gentile Body?

Q. I had a question about a comment you made in one of your commentaries.  You said, “Not all of Israel rebelled, only parts. For 20 years after the cross, the Church was mostly composed of Jewish believers.” I’m well aware that there were Jewish believers, I’m also aware that it was prophesied that they would reject the Messiah. I guess what I’m not all that clear on is how that played out historically. Did the majority of the Jewish population (except for the leaders) embrace Christianity? Why or why not? When, where and why did the Jewish people start to fade away and how does that affect the Jewish people today?

The next day, John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God.” (John 1:29,34).

What Does The Bible Say About Israel’s Future?

Commentary by Jack Kelley

Contrary to all the polls and predictions Benyamin Netanyahu and his Likud party have won another election. Some Israeli observers are calling this a landmark victory, because it came in spite of (or maybe as a reaction to) unprecedented external meddling in the country’s election process.

Promises To Israel

Q.  My question involves Jeremiah 31:35-36  In this passage God is speaking to Israel saying that He has given the sun, moon, and the sea as an ordinance…(etc) and that if these ordinances should depart from Him, Israel shall also depart from being a nation before Him.  Here He is apparently affirming that Israel will remain His chosen nation.  And yet that seems to conflict with the fact that during the millennial reign, the sun, moon, and sea will no longer exist, or be visibly functioning.  Can you explain this?
