What principles ought we to use in understanding Biblical end-time prophecy?
End Time Prophecy Leads to Rome | The Kingdom of Israel
It is not reasonable to base an end-time viewpoint on an arbitrary allegoricalmethod of interpretation. Yet premillennialists often accuse amillennialists of doing just that.
These articles (see menu sidebar to the left) demonstrate:
- That the method of interpretation used for deriving the amillennial viewpoint is based on the way in which the New Testament writers themselves interpreted Old Testament end-time prophecy. It is not an arbitrary method of interpretation.
- That the so-called literal method of interpretation utilized by premillennialists is not consistently literal at all — rather it is literal when it is convenient and figurative when that is convenient.
