Bible Mastermind – March 2015

1. Which pair of books in the New Testament mentions the Second Coming of Jesus in every chapter?
1 and 2 Thessalonians

2. Matthew 24 and Luke 21 talk about two major events. One is the Second Coming of Jesus, but what is the other?
AD 70 when the Jews rebelled against the occupation of their country by the Romans, and the Roman army came and destroyed Jerusalem. This was the start of the expulsion of the Jews from their land (it was completed in AD 135) just as the prophets had foretold. This exile lasted until 1948.

3. The biggest reason to expect the return of Jesus has not been mentioned in the DorridgeHope March issue. What is it? It is mentioned in Luke 21:24.
The re-establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was prophesied in the Bible and we are told it would be a great sign that the Second Coming of Jesus was not far away.

4. Which books of the New Testament do not mention the Second Coming? There are some, but not many.
There are 4 books of the New Testament that do not directly mention the Second Coming of Jesus – Romans, 2 Corinthians, Galatians and Ephesians. There are 27 books in the NT so that means 23 directly speak about the Second Coming. It must be important!
