What is the Rapture? Is it Biblical? Was it a late invention by the church? Is it true that it wasn't taught until the early 1800s? What about the verses that seem to point to a posttribulational Rapture? In a 75 minute presentation recorded before a live congregation in southern California, Charlie Campbell answers these questions and others as he builds a strong Biblical case for a pretribulational Rapture. If you’ve had questions or doubts about this doctrine, this video will be of great help to you. Length: 75 minutes.
Preterism is the view that the events spoken about in Matthew 24 and the Book of Revelation have been largely or completely fulfilled in the events leading up to and surrounding the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in A.D. 70. Preterism (from the Latin word for past) is growing in popularity. Could this view be valid? What did the early church think about these passages (Matt. 24 and the Book of Revelation)? In this hour long teaching, Charlie Campbell examines the preterist position, the verses often cited to support their view, and gives numerous reasons why preterism should be rejected as an incorrect understanding of Bible prophecy. Length: 60 minutes.
