The Lord himself will come down from heaven. We will hear a loud command. We will hear the voice of the leader of the angels. We will hear a blast from God’s trumpet. … We will be taken up in the clouds. We will meet the Lord in the air. And we will be with him forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17, NIrV)
Many are waiting for the return of Jesus Christ. But what if it’s already happened?
Rapture is the biblical prophecy of Christ’s promise to physically return to the earth and gather his followers to meet him in the sky and be granted eternal life in heaven. In A Beginner’s Guide to the Rapture: The History of Christ’s Return, Greg Legge presents a thorough study of historical evidence to argue that Christ fulfilled this promise nearly two thousand years ago.
Legge makes a compelling argument that the rapture has come and gone by pairing history with relevant biblical scripture. From analyzing the works of 19th century Adventists to detailing the lives of the 1st century leaders of the Roman Empire, Legge proves that what society has come to assume about the Second Coming may be completely wrong.
