Imagine you are a time traveler who has traveled back to the 1800s. You meet Abraham Lincoln and reveal to him that you have arrived form the 21st century. He might ask you how people send messages in the 21st century; you could try to explain how the mail system works. How would you describe it? You’re trying to communicate how fast an email really is delivered; but you’re trying to do it in a way that wouldn’t totally blow his mind. Would you use imagery with which he’s familiar? Perhaps you would tell him it’s like a postman riding his horse at 500 miles per hour. Or, you might liken it to delivering a message by train from New York to Los Angeles in less than one day.

That’s the conundrum we face when trying to understand difficult versus in the Bible, especially on themes like eschatology. The prophetic writers of Scripture were limited to conveying God’s mysteries in language their readers would understand. Two to three thousand years later as we read these prophetic Scriptures through a 21st century lens, it is possible to come up with strange, speculative interpretations. This especially happens when we don’t understand what those Scriptures would have meant to a first century believer, or to a Jew living in the time of the Old Testament prophets.
