Watching For The Parousia, were Jesus’ Apostle’ Confused?
Were Jesus’ Apostles Confused?
Did you know that the entire futurist view of eschatology, the end times, is dependent on the claim that Jesus’ apostles were a collective group of confused and ignorant men?
In Matthew 24:2 Jesus predicted the impending destruction of Jerusalem and the temple. The apostles – as almost all commentators claim – conflated that event with the end of the Christian age. But, they were confused, we are told. In their confusion they asked: “Tell us, when shall these things be, and what shall be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?”
The great question is: Were the apostles as confused as the commentators claim? To put it another way, was there a legitimate, Scriptural connection between the Day of the Lord and the destruction of the Temple. It may well surprise – and challenge – you, to realize that the Bible makes that connection firm and undeniable! That means that it was not Jesus’ apostles that were confused about Christ’s coming and the end of the age. It is the modern commentators who ascribe ignorance to them.
To my knowledge, there is not another book quite like this one. Personally, I once held to the “confused apostles” view. However, the abundant and clear evidence forced me to come to the conclusion, very firmly, that I was the one that had been confused for all of those years. I hope this book will bring clarity for you, as the wide array of evidence has for me. Once a person understands that the apostles were not confused, that reality changes everything!

Before Jerusalem Fell$17.95Select options
Contrary to many popular writers today, the Book of Revelation was NOT written in the 90’s AD. Learn from Kenneth Gentry in this significant work why the evidence points to a pre-AD70 dating for the book, which means that most of it’s contents are about the fall of Jerusalem and surrounding events, not the distant future.
The End of the Law Volume I$17.95Select options
Few Bible students seem to be aware of the absolute necessity for the total fulfillment of the Law of Moses before it could pass. Most claim that Torah ended at the Cross. Jesus said that until every jot and every tittle of Torah was fully accomplished, not one iota of the Law would pass. But, the Law of Moses foretold the second coming of Christ and the resurrection! What this means is that Torah would endure until the Telos (the time of the end). In this first of a planned multi-volume series on the passing of the Law of Moses, Don K. Preston examines Matthew 5:17-18 in great detail, demonstrating the power and the implications of Jesus’ words “not one jot or one tittle shall pass from the law, until it is all fulfilled.” This book will drastically change the way you look at the Law of Moses and the doctrine of the end times!
