Revelation 19-21 is the New Testament’s classic passage on the return of Christ, a passage that has sometimes been called “the last things.” In it the apostle John sets forth seven major motifs of biblical eschatology.


David J. MacLeod was born in Nova Scotia and raised in Massachusetts. He received his theological education at Dallas Theological Seminary (TM, PhD) and has served on the faculties of Colorado Christian University and Dallas Seminary. He is presently Chairman of the Division of Biblical Studies at Emmaus Bible College in Dubuque, Iowa.
