If there has ever been a passage on which I was more mixed up than 1 Thes. 4:16–17, I'd be hard pressed to know what it is. I distorted almost every element of the passage—at least 8 of them. Most likely, I distorted all of them. Most likely, you did, too. In fact, I suspect that almost everyone-believer or atheist—has mis-understood this wonderful victory passage and held on to false hope.

In this podcast I'll try to show why I was able to unravel the mystery. Maybe these thoughts will show the expected coming of Jesus in new light. Actually, I should say "in old light"; because the key piece in sorting it out is to know the Old Teachings and to know that Paul taught only "what the prophets and Moses said was about to come to pass" (Acts 26:22). Therefore, to see Paul as exegete of Moses and the prophets is to see clearly what he said in so many of his exciting New passages.

Join me as we look into Moses, the prophets, and Jesus to sift through the difficulties of this passage. Truth is, it really isn't so difficult; it has just been crusted over with false expectations for so long, making it harder to see the truth of the true interpretation.
