the second advent of Christ

Three different Greek words are used by the apostles to express this…

  1. apokalupsis (1 Cor. 1;7; 2 Thess. 1:7; 1 Pet. 1:7, 13)

  2. parousia (Matt. 24:3, 27; 1 Thess. 2:19; James 5:7-8)

  3. epiphaneia (1 Tim. 6:14; 2 Tim. 1:10; 4:1-8; Titus 2:13)

There existed among Christians a wide expectation, founded on Matt. 24:29-30, 34, of the speedy return of Christ.
