Comparing Israel's Hope of ‘Resurrection’ with the Gentiles ‘Appearing’ in Glory

Distinguishing Paul’s 2 Sets of Epistles

A 4-Part Study

We note the similarities between Jesus’ words concerning Israel’s end-time events in Matt. 24with The Apostle Paul’s ACTS period words of 1Thes. 4:13-18 and 1Cor. 15:51-55 concerning Israel’s believing remnant being “caught up” in resurrection to “meet the Lord in the air.”

On the other hand we will further note Paul’s POST-ACTS period epistles and their quite different view of the eternal destiny of “the faithful” Gentile members of “the Church” that Paul identifies as “The Body of Christ,” who will “appear with Him in glory” (Col. 3:4).
