Overview

This is the first scholarly defense of the pillars of the prewrath position put forth by Charles Cooper, former professor at Moody Bible Institute and now founder of the Prewrath Resource Institute and one of the position's most well-respected lecturers. The book takes a serious academic look at the application of Matthew 24:1-31 and Daniel 9 to the Church, but is written to be accessible to readers at all levels.

The first section deals in-depth with the issue, "Does Matthew 24:1-31 apply to the Church?" In this section, Cooper examines what can be learned, both from the text and from the writings of the church fathers. On the issue of text, he looks at language issues, culture, book composition, authorship and intent of the gospel, and much more. On the issue of Daniel 9, he looks at issues related to event dating, prophetic context, and original language, ultimately putting forth an unexpected interpretation of the fulfillment of the 69th Week.

This book has four goals: (1) to support the prewrath position in its conclusion that insisting on a sharp distinction between God's work in Israel and His work in the Church is a false presupposition that directly contradicts scripture; (2) to support the prewrath position in its conclusion that Matthew 24:1-31 does apply to the Church, the bride of Christ; (3) to set forth a clear biblical exposition of Matthew 24:1-31 and (4) to correct the false and misleading conclusions about both the timing and fulfillment of Daniel 9:24-27.
